“Wonderful central hotel”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

The Hotel is situated right in the centre of Nerja and the location is absolutely fantastic. The staff are wonderful and really helpful. There are plenty of good restaurants and Tapas bars close by. the beach is directly next to the hotel.

Room Tip: We had room 802 which looks over the Balcon however, it wasn't noisy at all

After a week of traveling around Spain, decided to wind down in Nerja. Choose this hotel due to location. And it was the right choice. The location is fabulous right in the center of Nerja and it has its own almost private beach directly in front of the hotel. It has plenty of sunbeds and the hotel has a bar/resteraunt right on the beach making it easy for an mid-day snack/drink/ice-cream break. The rooms to book must be beach view which is fantastic. Not side-view but front beach view. The room itself is stylish and roomy but the bathroom is a bit small and dated. But as the hotel itself, everything is very cleam and looked after and maintained at a high level. The breakfast buffet is wide in choice and offers made to order eggs and crepes. Nerja itslef has a lot of great reseraunts so skip the dinner plan at the hotel. Even though it is right in the middle of things, we had great peacefull nights with quite sleep. Only down thing is reserve your sunbed before breakfast to get the location you want.

Stayed here for 6 nights. The location is outstanding as well as the beach in front of the hotel. The hotel is getting a bit old but everything is very well maintained, the AC is new an quite, The dining facilities are great, serve and outstanding buffet breakfast with eggs and crepes made to order, the sea-view rooms provide great views of the beach and sea. Its great to have the hotel bar next to the beach. The hotels central location make it perfect for walks about town. It has a small pool which is good for cooling off. But no big pool is needed when the beach is so good. Only bad thing is the poor wifi. But it is free and works so no big deal.

I'm just finishing off a 6 night stay in this hotel and I've really been impressed. As I sit on my balcony overlooking the beach I realise this is a superb hotel. It's bang on centre of Nerja, I mean walk out the front door and you're in the heart of the town. We booked a car to come from Malaga as we are also staying in Marbella. Best tip is to park in underground car park, leave off bags, ask the porter what streets are good for parking and go find a space. The carpark beside the hotel is a rip off at €22 a day. I've parked 5 mins away on the street for free. ( I notice there's a bus from Malaga airport to Nerja, worth trying out as it's €65 for a taxi). On a Nerja forum it talks about a free carpark, I'm afraid it's now €65 per week.
It's worth paying extra for a superior room with sea view as I spent 10 mins in a standard room and my view through the closed window was a wall 12 feet away. I'd a few days in a room with balcony overlooking square and it's fine but not as good as beach view.
Here's a few tips; ask for key to fridge, then you can buy a few drinks of your own. You can book a bed on the beach through the nice beach guy. He'll hold them for you each day until midday then it's only €3.50 pp. ask for ice at the bar, the staff are very obliging.
Finally we were staying b&b and the breakfast was super.
I'll definitely be back as in my doubt this is the best hotel in Nerja.

The hotel was spacious and clean and the restaurant staff were particularly pleasant. The food choices were plentiful with efficient service. Restaurant on 4th floor and the lift was woefully slow, so those with difficulty negotiating the stairs may need to consider this.

Our room was a twin with large comfortable beds. Plenty of wardrobe space and sockets. Very useful. Bathroom was clean and functional but very small. Not a problem for us but could be if you're a sharer.

Our room did not have a balcony and the view from our window was a very close, plastered plain wall. That is, no floral display, no Andalusian images or logos, but nothing. Totally blank. About 20 rooms had this view, but many had sea views with sizeable balconies and we did not discover this until we spoke to others, by which time, it was too late to change. We paid more than some with the sea views, so I would insists on this if I were to stay here again or , before you unpack, make a fuss at reception about the room without a view as it was difficult to dry our "smalls" in the bathroom and we felt generally short changed compared to other travellers.

Beach towels were provided however sun beds were at an additional cost of €5 each per day and parasols were also an additional €5 per day.

We travelled in July and stayed for one week and paid the premium rate.

Room Tip: INSIST on a room with a balcony or a window with a view, at the very least.

Great stay - very clean well kept traditional hotel.

All the staff were helpful -
The rooms front facing the sea are the best large balcony great views

Only slight complaint not that great for vegetarians - all the breakfast utensils are mixed so people use them on the bacon and the mushrooms not ideal. Apart from that it's brilliant. Thanks for a lovely stay

Tapas only 1eu30 and drinks about 1eu50, a very cheap meal out for us whilst we watched the virgin del carmen celebrations. The service was distracted and slow, but the food and desserts more than met our expectations. The waiters were obviously having an argument over the top of our heads, but there was at least 10,000 people in Nerja that evening so they were a little rushed off their feet. We will definitely go back there at those prices!
