Your train question has been answered on your other post. All buses leave from the main bus station, which is adjacent to Maria Zambrano train station.

For Nerja the bus usually leaves from stand 38 but first you buy a ticket from the Alsa kiosk on the left side of forecourt (farthest away from stand 38!!).

I have no knowledge of buses to Marbella, but I'm sure someone will post the info.

I gave you a link to the googlemaps showing where your hotel is compared to the station and its only 5 mins walk away (I t hink as long as you go out the exit at the end of the platform which exits up on the side of the river nearest to the hotel you will be fine).

To go to Nerja you can go to the Muelle de Heredia Bus Station. You can use that same station to go to Benalmadena. To go to Marbella you need to go to the main bus station at Paseo de los Tilos (at the back of Vialia).

Make sure you know the timetable for the Nerja buses, if you get one that's going further beyond then they are much quicker - avoid the stopping buses!

thanks, its great to get local knowledge "last year" in Albufeira we waited at the terminus for the bus and then when it came the driver said we had to pre pay at the kiosk, by the time we queued up the bus left without us, not a good experience so at least I know to pre buy , this sort of info is invaluable thanks for you patience and time

There is an easy-to-use ticket machine that, if it's working, saves a lot of time queueing for tickets to Nerja.

Yep, the main bus station next to M-Zam. The ticket machine is just near the ALSA desk.

If you get one of the fast buses they don't even go through central Málaga, they go on the ring-road, first stop is Torre del Mar.
