“Perfect location in Nerja”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

We booked this room based on TripAdvisor recommendations and were NOT disappointed. It was a wonderful find! This hotel is right next to the Balcon de Europa, which is THE spot to be in. Despite the number of people outside in the plaza below our balcony, the room was surprisingly quiet. It's a high quality, clean hotel, and we were able to get a room with three beds. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. This hotel is also one of the few with a parking garage. One warning about parking and driving to the hotel. There are several one-way streets in Nerja, and the ones close to the hotel are pedestrian-only after 5 pm. If you will be arriving after 5 pm, you will need to use the municipal parking garage and walk to the hotel, as you will not be able to get to the hotel by car. Using the hotel parking garage was a bit unnerving at first, but is one of our favorite "stories" from our trip. Entrance to the below-ground garage is via an elevator, and you will need to call them ahead of time (or able to let out a passenger to "buzz" them) to make sure there's room and to get them to open the elevator door and let you in. If you don't want to use the hotel garage, the municipal parking garage is very close and walkable. Another quick tip: we did not have a GPS and instead used directions from googlemaps, which were of no use! The streets are twisty and jagged and lack name signs. Fortunately, there are signs posted all over town pointing you in the direction of this hotel and some other prominent ones. Just follow those, and you'll be fine! All in all, we were thrilled to have found Hotel Plaza Cavana. The location is AWESOME, the hotel was precious, and we loved Nerja!

Our family of four (2 teens) enjoyed our stay thanks to the excellent hotel staff - minus only some chef.

We chose Media Pension (Breakfast+lunch or dinner) and found the quality extremely hit or miss for lunch or dinner. Breakfasts were ok. We enjoyed the selection of meats and breads and boiled eggs. Coffee was weak. Cereal not so good. Yogurt "wanna be", no thanks. Gentleman who ran it, very pleasant.

Our first evening meal was good (food freshly cooked, vegetables tender crisp, and hot). On Tuesday, the restaurant is closed. Wednesday, not sure but all of us agreed that the chef could not have been the same as Monday evening as the food was absolutely horrid. Not one of us or the table next to us ate our food. The vegetables had to have been left over from lunch as they were so overcooked.

As for the hotel, the staff have all been equally pleasant and helpful which has made our stay very nice. The rooms are adequate but I agree noise is sometimes an issue but that's the trade for location. Motorcycles irritatingly leave at all hours of the a.m. Delivery trucks came/went very early in the morning. Beds and pillows were comfortable so when quiet, we slept very well.

I did not appreciate the glued thermostat which would not allow us to cool the room enough at times. OK, if you need to regulate, but at 30 degrees?

The pool and area was lovely and refreshing. Free wifi internet was unavailable in rooms but ok in the lobby.

The plaza cavana is right in the centre of Nerja we had a room looking over the square nice room with air con but could be a little noisey,you could ask for one at the back Breakfast had lots of choice but was down in the basement so no views.Pool on the roof terrace very clean great spot for sun bathing no bar on the terrace only a drinks machine.All the staff very pleasant and helpful had a late flight home so arranged for us to use the indoor pool shower which was great.The plaza is in a really good spot didnt have to walk far for anything super cafes and restaurants all around Would stay again

Room Tip: maybe a room at the back quieter

From the minute we arrived the staff were more than helpful, i had lost my phone in the airport, a young member of staff called Sabrina phoned the airport for me and organized, with her colleague to contact them via email for the taxi company to collect it the following day. The rooms were clean the staff from reception to the lady who cleans the room were so nice . I could not fault this hotel in any way, i picked it from hundreds on the net, and was blessed. My daughter 25yrs and my sin16yrs had a great time and we will most defiantly return.

Stayed here for 7 nights on b & b. Perfectly located near Balcon de Europa, town and beaches. Room requested was 'high room, quiet location'. Interesting outcome. High room - 2nd floor - tick; quiet - well, yes and no! Room was private, with a strange outlook - encircled by walls, and the kitchen seemed to be at the bottom. Others have mentioned rooms overlooking a courtyard. That wasn't ours! We could see the sky, though! However, the room was noisy, due to what appeared to be a generator somewhere bel ow, which rarely seemed to be switched off. Night times were the most problematic. Suggest earplugs for this room might be supplied?! Breakfast ok - a bit boring, but typically continental. No hot food. All this aside, really good hotel with extras. Well worth a visit. Marta on reception was a gem.

Room Tip: Could be noisy - front overlooks town. Back might be better.

Enjoyed our stay at Plaza Cavana. Brilliant location, everything to hand.
Rooms great, clean and large.
Rooftop pool is nice but on more than one occasion, there were not enough parasols for everyone and we do like the shade!
Could do with the facility to have coffee/tea in room or even room service but nothing was advertised.
Breakfast was ample for us but the breakfast room is very dark and depressing (no natural light). This lets it down. I would stay again but on a room only basis.

Room Tip: We loved the room overlooking the square. Had no problem with noise, the shutters lock it out.

stayed at the plaza cavana, the room was round the back of the hotel so it was very quiet, the hotel is very clean the maid came in every day, the breakfast was ceirials, toast fruit, ham cheese , cold boiled eggs,the roof top pool is great for caching the sun, the only fault is the pigions are constantly in the pool so if your allergic to birds be carefull, unfortunally my husband had a allergic reaction very badly he needed hospital treatment the staff at the hotel phone a private doctor who takes you to his private hospital around the corner , the cost for this is 1500.00 a day so be aware you must have insurance or you could be in trouble, little italy is a great place for a good cheap pizza or pasta, there is a nice cocktail bar across the road from the hotel called mojitos and they show all the football games for the men,the other place to go is paulinas bar for a nice wine and a people watch, i would deffo stay at this hotel again as its location is the best.
