We received a first class welcome on our tour with great hospitality including an authentically prepared Paella in a super location. We felt very safe in terms of safety provisions laid on by our hosts with full medical support laid on in case of accidents. We stayed quite close by in Estepona in a fully equipped Hotel and our group of 20 teenagers entertained themselves with a full array of activities. I would have no hesitation recommending this to any Rugby Club thinking of taking a touring party to Club del Estrecho.
Our tour in February 2020 was absolutely amazing. We took a large group to the region and Guy looked after us brilliantly from the moment we landed. Every aspect of the tour was excellently organised and communicated to us. Guy had sorted out every detail for us which made the trip so much more enjoyable for everyone and stress free for me :-) The hotel we stayed in was great, the hospitality shown by the opposing teams was lovely and every single member of the Tour had a great time. I could not recommend these guys highly enough.
Touring Andalusia in 2017 with Rugbytourspain, Stoke-on-Trent RUFC U14s enjoyed two fantastic playing opportunities. The match against a Gibraltar Select XV was played at the Victoria Stadium. Located impressively next to the airport and in the shadow of the Rock, the stadium is often seen on TV as it hosts international football, athletics and rugby. Hospitality followed at a clubhouse on the rock with all players enjoying the setting and experience of performing at an international ground. The second and third matches took place at Holmes Sotogrande Rugby del Estrecho. Here the team got to play in a three-way tournament against the hosts from Estrecho, and a Marbella Select XV. All of the matches were evenly-contested and well-officiated, allowing for all of the touring squad to enjoy plenty of tough, exciting rugby. The generous hosts provided excellent hospitality at their purpose-built ground, giving the team a memorable send-off to the short tour of the region. The quality of rugby, level of sportsmanship, warmth of the hospitality and support from Rugytourspain made for a memorable first touring experience for all the team.
We toured with Rugby Tour Spain in 2019 as a youth rugby team. Everything we requested was accommodated by Adrian, especially the quality of the opposition he put together for us. Nothing was too much trouble, and the boys, coaching team and parents had an experience that they’ll never forget. I would recommend using these guys to anyone wanting an awesome tour in a great part of the world!

There are plenty of accommodation options in our area. However, after using many hotels with visiting teams we now work with the two we find best suited to touring groups.

Ohtels and Las Camelias both offer great bases for your trip and have everything on hand to make the experience as easy and enjoyable as possible during your stay.

Ohtels Campo de Gibraltar

There are many accommodation options in the area for a variety of budgets from campsites to 5-star luxury hotels. We recommend the 4-star Ohtels Campo de Gibraltar and the groups we send there always comment very positively.

The hotel is modern, has a small pool on the first floor, and offers full buffet service for all meals.

The marina and beach are within 50 metres and Gibraltar is a 5-minute walk, especially convenient for teams who fly into Gibraltar airport. There are spectacular views over the rock and the Rif mountains of Morocco. The hotel is ideally situated for transfers to matches and many teams use the beach for training sessions and touch rugby.

The hotel offers triple, double and single rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. There is a games area and a meeting room on the ground floor.

The transfer time from Malaga airport is 1 hour 15 minutes, Jerez 90 minutes, Seville 2 hours and Gibraltar walking distance.

The hotel is a good base for a variety of activities that we can organise including bowling, kayaking, paddle boarding and the tree top park at Aventura Amazonia. Another popular option is the cable car ride to the top of the rock of Gibraltar for the spectacular views and a close look at the famous Barbary apes.

Las Camelias

Las Camelias is a well-established family run Hotel situated within easy walking distance of both Sotogrande Port and Torregudiaro beach.

Accommodation is available in individual, double and triple rooms. All the rooms have air conditioning and en-suite bathrooms. The Hotel has its own small bar and games room with pool and snooker tables and has a bright dining room and terrace area where you can enjoy your food with impressive sea views.

Also, within walking distance is the village of Torreguadiaro with several bars and restaurants. The Port has a sports bar and boasts a wide variety of bars and restaurants.

From Easter through to October there are several chiringuitos on Torreguadiaro beach all within 5 minutes’ walk from the Hotel.

The staff at Las Camelias are experienced with groups and we currently solely offer a bed and breakfast option; however, evening meals can be arranged in their busy restaurant.

The Hotel is 15 minutes from Gibraltar airport and one hour 15 mins from Malaga. The local rugby Club, Club de Rugby del Estrecho, is nearby and there is a thriving beach rugby scene on the Torreguadiaro beach.
