I struggle slightly with this review because we had a slightly off-putting experience with the hotel at check-in. We had arrived slightly late (around 8:30pm), and as such I do not think the primary front-desk people were on duty. The gentleman that greeted us did his best but he seemed a little confused and was not very helpful when asked for restaurant recommendations or similar questions. It was very awkward all around. Having only stayed a single night, this experience stands out when I think back to our visit.
Having said the above, all other aspects of this hotel and our short stay were very good. The views from the hotel's ground as terriffic as you will see in everyone's photos. The beach below is very nice with great bars/cafes lining the strip and plenty of chairs for renting. The grounds of the hotel are very well maintained and the central fountain very pretty.
Our room was only on the first floor, but we could still see the sea. The room was a good size with decent beds but a little dated. I believe the interior is in need of slight refurb, but still nothing wrong. The hallway outside the room is nice and the bathroom is well equiped.
The reception team in the morning was very good. They dealt with a slightly booking mishap with excellent service. They were very friendly and helpful. We were allowed to use the hotel pool and beach elevator all day with our room keys (room entry switched off, but exterior access still allowed).
Breakfast was terriffic and you can sit outside and look to the ocean while eating, a great experience. Parking at the hotel was free. Of all the Costa del Sol towns, Nerja is my favorite. Its just the right size and not as tacky as many of its neighbors.
