Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in mid July 2013. The hotel is very centrally located in Nerja, 1 minute walk from the Balcon de Europe.
The first night of our stay we were given a room at the top of the hotel This room was unbearably hot, the air conditioning was insufficient for the room and atb4 am we were outside trying to sleep on the outside chairs!
After speaking with reception we were given a different room for our second night. This room was cooled like ice .
The room itself was clean, the bed comfortable and adequately furnished.
Breakfast in the downstairs restaurant was fair, cold meats, eggs and continental style with tea coffee and juice.
The dining room lacked atmosphere somewhat, it was small and because of the proximity of the tables, you could here a pin drop. It may not always be like that of course.
The hotel has a very small plunge pool on the roof which was ok for a dip, there are a few sun beds for use up there too.
All in all I would happily stay at this hotel with its great location and clean standards for a long weekend, but would not choose it for a longer vacation.

l am surprised this hotel does not rate higher..l preferred it to the higher rated Hostel Marissa round the corner....Large rooms,warm in winter..Very clean,Quiet and various British TV channels..The foyer areas are roomy and comfortable with sofas and stuff to read..Bedding very good..Cannot really level any serious complaints about the place..It's very grans inside and smarter than it's 3 star rating

Room Tip: Internet does work very well in some rooms so check with reception...If you ask for courtyard rooms...

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here for the second time. The location is excellent and the staff are friendly and helpful. My room was quite small but, for the price I paid, was more than adequate. Probably not the best place to stay with small children - the pool area is quite small - but the perfect location for seeing Nerja and for visiting the many and varied restaurants.

I stayed here for one night with friends. The hotel was in a great location near the beaches and balcony of Europe. It was simply decorated, clean, and spacious. Our room had a large terrace near the rooftop pool. Breakfast was typical European and good. Parking was very tough in a tiny elevator but I would stay here again and just park in the public garage down the street!

Have just returned from 10 days at the plaza cavana in a superior room overlooking the plaza. We had no problem at all with noise and I am a very light sleeper. I use a mobility scooter and was a bit worried by a previous review which said you could not even get to reception with a wheel chair. There was no problem at all the very helpful reception staff let me in and out through the restaurant entrance which has a ramp. I could either keep my scooter in our room or in a cupboard in reception, which is what did. The two lifts in this small hotel meant we never had to wait for a lift. The rooms were very clean. Breakfast was fine and the basement room was not as dark as some reviews make out. The only problem is a full time wheel chair user would not be able to reach the pool and sun terrace. In all this hotel is very good for a 3 star.

The location was excellent, but beware of the no frills. Easy access to attractions, but take some additional spending money. The parking surplus was not as tricky as negotiating the narrow and awkward garage lift entrance. Hotel advertised facilities with extra charge (sauna, jacuzzi, parking), however, also charged for other facilties such as fitmness area and indoor pool).

Soundproofing in the nhotel is poor, but street noise can be easily avoided by booking a room overlooking the courtyard. The rooms themselves are good, but the moisy corridors of hen parties / school trips were tiresome.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the street are noisy. book a room overlooking the courtyar for a more peaceful sta...
