The Caleta Hotel


The Caleta Hotel Gibraltar offers high quality conference, wedding, accommodation, restaurant & leisure facilities to an international clientele of well-travelled business visitors, families & those simply spending a holiday, short break, or leisurely long weekend in Gibraltar.


The hotel has modern well-appointed rooms and suites, restaurants, a lounge bar, health & beauty club and the best wedding, conference and banqueting facilities anywhere in a Gibraltar hotel.


A favoured hotel for business travellers and those visiting Gibraltar for a short break or holiday, this classic 4 star Gibraltar hotel is located on the tranquil eastside of the Rock; a vantage point that offers simply stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea and Costa del Sol.


Surrounded by these sights, the Caleta Hotel overlooks the peaceful former fishing village of Catalan Bay, yet it is just minutes away from the centre and airport of this lively little metropolis - ideal for your shopping in Gibraltar.
