We spent a week in one of the apartments at the Perla Marina, Nerja and had a wonderful time. Although the apartments are a bit dated, they are very spacious, well kept, comfortable and close to the beach which is practically on your doorstep.
The hotel amenities were fine - including a rather small swimming pool. That said when you have a choice of beaches all of which are within a 5 minute (or less) walk, there is no reason to complain. The hotel staff were extremely friendly, helpful and courteous and the breakfast buffet was nice as breakfast buffets go. But there are so many other restaurants within striking distance and the town centre of Nerja is less than a 15 minute walk away.
Some of the nicer restaurants near by include the El Chamiza tapas bar which is across the road to the hotel which was a real find. El Chamiza is a perfect example of what a good tapas bar should be and serves up a huge range of mouth-watering dishes for a few euro a plate. I would thoroughly recommend this. Having read some of the previous reviews about The Codfather, I was deeply disappointed when we ate there one night. The food was awful and you could see the chef microwaving just about everything that landed on his workbench. Even the fish was awful and appeared to have the consistency of a frozen fish. Dodgy pub grub is how I would describe it. Elsewhere Cafe Jamaica was very good as was the Chinese just up from it (the name of which I can't remember). Then in Nerja itself, there is a raft of good restaurants that cater for all palates, most of which are pretty good. If you want to head to Buriana Beach, which is about 10 mins in a taxi, then you have to try Ayo, which serves up the best paella in the world. No kidding!
This is our third time in Nerja and the area where Perla Marina is located (Toricella, I think) is a great area. Safe, clean and with great beaches (somewhat stoney though), I would recommend it. And I would recommend the Hotel and the apartments and villas that are part of the complex.
