Just returned from the Nerja Club Hotel after a very pleasant weeks break. We travelled with Thomson on a deal booked via the net only paid £540 for the two of us half board.
The coach journey from Malaga to the hotel was pretty bad, after collecting our luggage and been told what number coach to look for we eventually found the coach with quite a number of people already seated so assumed we would soon be off to the hotel, no such luck had to waite for other flights to land so sat on the coach for over an hour, we already expected a two hour drive so the extra hour didnt help it was as long as the flight.
We arrived at our hotel after 4 other drop offs, and as we were the only people going to the Nerja Club we had an excellent and quick check in, and were shown to our room
The room was newly decorated and very bright (252) but the bathroom let it down badly very outdated and small, just needed the bath removed and a walk in shower which would have given loads more space to move around apart from the bathroom needing an update we were happy with the room and it was spotlessly clean.
The hotel wasnt full, so very comfortable, happy hour between 5-30 and 6-30 glass of wine and a pint 2 euro 50, Snacks at lunchtime very good especially the king prawns in Piri Piri sauce mmmm good value at 8 Euro. We were half board, breakfast was OK not the usual loads of choice but it is only a Thomson TT, the evening meals were good always a fish dish and several meat options, and of course the usual sald choice.
for what we paid we were very happy, a bottle of wine at dinner was 9 Euro, you could buy it by the glass if you wished. The entertainment for a small OK wasnt bad weve had alot worse in 4 and 5 star hotels. Would we go back, unlikely only because it takes about an hour to walk to the resort centre, and its up hill all the way back, we did know this\when we booked but hoped there would be more going on close to the Hotel, there was a bus stop opposite but if you wanted to go into the centre for lunch you had to waite till after 5 to get back as the buses stop from 1pm to 5pm and useing taxis every day to get back would have added to waht started out as a good deal. there was one other small hotel close by where you could go for a drink or snack and there was a sports club opposite but not much else, we would definately go back to Nerja as we like the area very much but to a hotel closer to the centre.
One other piece of advice, when we were there the Thomson notice board showed Tues and Sunday times of pick up but not Fridays the reception staff had to contact Thomson to get the details and they were very slow in calling back, we couldnt work out why Thomson couldnt fax through the times to the hotel, who could have than displayed the times, so be aware of this if you travel on a Friday, all the people we came back with at our hotel were going to E-mail Thomson and complain, we travel with them at least 5 times a year and have stayed in Hotels with no Rep but always found all the info we needed on the Thomson notice board.
Hope this is helpful if I can be of further help please contact me
