“Best Gin + Tonic in Nerja”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

We booked this hotel for a long weekend break. We booked a superior room at the front of the hotel. The room was simple but adequate and had the benefit of english tv.

We had read other reviews about noise and did find it a little noisey from passing pedestrians and delivery trucks,but this did not spoil our overall experience. Breakfast was ok,but in a windowless room,which spoilt the ambience a little. All the staff were nice,polite and friendly. The best thing was the Gin & Tonics served in the very pleasant hotel bar.

Would go back again without hesitation. Good value for money..

This hotel is centrally located, very clean, modern rooms with TV, helpful staff and the breakfast is good, continental, fresh every day and the dining room, although in the lower levels, is bright, clean and nicely decorated. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will return again next year.
I had a room facing the back of the hotel and there was still traffic and people noise so I personally recommend a room overlooking the square, still noise but lovely views from the Juliette balconies.

Room Tip: Pick a room over the front, you will still hear noise at the back but no view whereas the front has...

Booked three double rooms for 2 nights with friends at a give a way price of 50 euros per room per night. Good continental breakfast for only 4 euros per head. Hotel is 2 minutes from Balcon de Europe, with a wide choice of good restaurants nearby. Sadly, some of the top restaurants in Nerja are closed at this time of year.

Rooms simple but comfortable, all three good size with excellent bathrooms.

Hotel staff efficient but a little remote in their attitude, more smiles would be nice hence no top score. Hotel garage good value at 10 euros per night (nearby multi storey outrageous 22.50 euros for 24 hours) but access is via car lift and restricted to small vehicles.

Will certainly stay in Plaza Cavana again. No doubt more expensive in season.

Room Tip: Top floor overlooking small courtyard probably quieter during summer.

We have stayed at the Plaza Cavana twice and are going back in July. Hotel is in the heart of Nerja just a stones throw from the Balcon de Europa which is beautiful. Not all the rooms are good, we always ask for 112, which is spacious with a nice bathroom. Breakfast is basic but there is enough to choose from. Staff very friendly, everywhere clean. Even though hotel is very central sleep is not disturbed by noise. Overall well worth a visit

A minute's walk from the Balcon d'Europe and the pedestrianised shopping streets, this hotel couldn't have a better location. It also has very helpful and cheerful reception staff. But rooms are average, the bar is only open from 6p.m. till midnight (even on New Year's Eve) and the Continental breakfast is below average. Standard rooms have a safe (€2 Euros a day for the key) and superior rooms also have fridge (a €10 Euro a day supplement for these rooms). The hotel's public rooms have free wi-fi.

Room Tip: All rooms are noisy - the ones at the front are noisier!

Lovely clean hotel,central to everything.The only problem if you get a room at the front of the hotel it can be very noisey from early hrs of the morning,Your better with a room at the back over looking the courtyard.Beds very comfy.Breakfast is just a continental,but plenty of eating places all a round.Have stayed in a lot of 4 star hotels in Nerja and this 3 star hotel was more central than some of the 4 star hotels,would recommend this Plaza cavana to anyone.

Room Tip: Try and book a room at the back of hotel,where there is less noise.
