I expected a lot more! Gibraltar is not a nice place!
Gibraltar in very touristic and overpriced. But I must say The Rock is worth a visit. But I do recommend that you stay and eat in Spain to save money.
I have lived in Gibraltar for twenty-eight years now and think it's a great, safe, and cheap place to live. Where else can you get a pint for £2?
Gibraltar's main problem seems to be the British expats found in every bar and restaurant complaining that it's crap and not like England (they do the same in Spain) and the low life Spanish cigarette smugglers stuffing half-dismantled mopeds with cigarettes on every street corner. The locals are extremely friendly; depending on the time of year, weather can be quite warm and humid. Shopping is extremely cheap if you avoid the establishments aimed at lightening tourists' wallets. If you expect Spanish food (like tapas) in a British country, be prepared to pay for it. Historically, the place is amazing. To see all of the tourist attractions (many by appointment with a military guide) you need at least a week in the country. To really enjoy the place (and the beaches) several weeks and an open mind are recommended.
I can confirm that Gibraltar is a dump, having just spent the weekend there. They have overpriced hotels; poor restaurants; naff, British-style pubs -- worse still is the depressing array of tenement flats with washing hanging from most windows. It represents the very worst of the U.K. society and should be condemned, demolished, and given to the Spanish, who could make it respectable. I felt sorry for the monkeys having to put up with the dregs surrounding the rock.
Gibraltar is very touristic and overpriced. But if you travel trough the south of Spain, it's a must to visit.
