“Not in NERJA”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

I booked this hotel to go to a friends wedding in NERJA. This hotel is in a neighboring town called maro there is not a single thing to do around the hotel other than the small pool. The menu was poor with very little choice. We stayed here for four nights self catering. Although the hotel was clean enough and staff friendly (good English and 24 hour reception) the location totally spoiled our trip... a taxi into nerja centre was between 9-10 euro and was absolutely unavoidable we had to make this trip several times a day to get food unless we made food in the room... there are no facilities for this.Nerja is a beautiful town there are lots of nice places in a more central location. Had I have took my 5 year old daughter the holiday would have been ruined.

This hotel was in a lovely location, food fantastic, staff brilliant, nothing too much trouble for them.

We booked this on the internet and it said that it was 500 mt to the beach and it wasn't ! very very long walk away, so you need to hire a car (which we didn't want to do )we wanted a hotel close to a beach...........so the information on the co op travel site was wrong ! which really upset us as we like to snorkel and swim. Also I think it is totally unsuitable for kids, as there is nothing for them to do. So you live and learn. We will never book a holiday on the internet again, by the way we were not the only ones to be fooled about the beach being close by...................so take note

booked a week away at christmas last. Yes i know its taken a while but it still bugs me. Wanted to get away for xmas so booked through travelsoon .com and they came back with this, I already know the area very well as normally stay in Almunecar but thought we would try something a little more livle hence Nerga. OMG right next to a motorway although we still had sea views via the smog. Constant God FM played during mealtimes which were incvlusive but totally inedible (spaghetti bologniase) actually pasta with tomato soup. the staff were lovely especially the irish lady on reception but after 2 days had to leave and go and find somewhere else to spend the week, I think it was the remotness that really put us off. Not the hotels fault after all its just a motel but Travelsoon should have made this clear.

POSITIVES: Great value, very clean, decent rooms with fridge and separate little living area plus small balcony. No real frills, but staff were attentive and friendly (just little things like remembering your room number when they go get your key etc.) and the breakfast we had was decent. Free WiFi if needed. Small but clean and inviting pool and surrounding grassy pool area. Overall perfect for our stay.

NEGATIVES: Bit out of town, so although VERY Close to the magnificent Nerja caves (literally easy walking distance) the Hotel is too far really to trek into Town. A taxi is about 8-10Euros, so a night out without anyone driving is easily possible. Only other thing I would say is that although admittedly it was by no means full when we stayed, there never seemed to be an atmosphere down at the bar where you might feel like sitting on a stool (there weren't any) and sipping/chatting with staff or other visitors, but its a very small point.

Room Tip: If you need wifi (for working perhaps) then make sure you tell them that either when booking or on a...

We booked this hotel 7 weeks in advance but it was only when we arrived at the hotel did they inform us they had over booked and we would have to stay at a hotel 1 km away. The alternative hotel, Playamaro, was not up to standard with no bath or basin plug, the shower hose did not reach the wall fitment, the bed was rock hard and it was all extremely dingy. On complaining the hotel Al Andalus refused any refund or discount.

We checked into this hotel for 4 nights on a working holiday. One of the reasons we chose this venue was because they offer free wi-fi in the rooms which is essential for us to continue working abroad. When we checked in, we realised that our room did not have a sufficient connection but the reception staff were very helpful and moved us into a more suitable room very quickly.

We were quite surprised how friendly and attentive the staff actually were after reading through the reviews but hats off to them they did a great job looking after us. Very friendly, even down to the cleaning ladies who always had a smile on their face in the morning and said 'hello' to us as we passed by. The rooms had everything we needed including a nice sized fridge which came in handy for our Sangria! Beds were comfortable and our rooms were cleaned to a high standard on a daily basis. For the price, you really can't complain about this hotel and we will definitely be returning on our next trip. My only complaint would be the shower as it switched from warm, to scalding hot, to cold very quickly. Each day we did a little dance in the shower and it became a running joke for us. Easy to shrug this off with everything else. Well done Hotel Andalus, see you again soon.

Muy Bueno, Mucho Gusto!

i stayed in this hotel last weekend, when i arrived i was waiting 20mins approx to check in when finally a member of staff turned up. The room itself was basic but did the job- if your planning to spend your trip in a hotel go stay in the BALCON DE EUROPA, it,s a 45min walk downhill to the town, GET A TAXI BACK it,s 9 euro, next time i go i will be staying in the town , there are no shops near the hotel , your literally on the side of a mountain, having said that the staff were very friendly when you could find one, i won,t be back
