“Great location in Nerja.”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

I have just returned from a nine night stay with my husband at the Jimesol hotel, Nerja. This hotel has much going for it, primarly its location, it is only a few minutes walk from the shops, bars and beaches, it is also very clean and comfy, and the maid service is great. The staff are really friendly and the food (if you like all Spanish food) is well cooked and plentiful.The hotel lacks any holiday atmosphere though, and there are no outside areas to sit and read, there is a rooftop pool and terrace but they were closed, even though the weather was lovely, but we asked for a sunny balcony( I do not think all rooms have balconies) so each afternoon when we returned to the hotel we could sit out there. We were glad we took a tip from Trip Advisor and took our own travel kettle as there are no facilities in the rooms to make a drink.I do not think I would recommend this Hotel to people with small children as there are no play areas but we would go again, but next time in summer when the pool is open.

Room Tip: Request a balcony,take your own kettle.

We stayed for a mini break in Jan 14, the weather was kind, hot and sunny, 70 -80's. This hotel is lovely, very clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The room was cleaned everyday, towels changed and beds made. Complimentary soap and shower gel in the bathroom. We had room 123 which had a sea facing balcony, however it faced onto a main street and in the season this would be noisy as there are many bars and clubs on the street. There is a nice lounge area to sit in and access wifi and plenty of books to borrow to read during your holiday.. Our only problem was the food. It was cooked very nicely but once the dining room opened, the food was put out on to a buffet stand which was supposed to keep the food warm. Unfortunately it was at best lukewarm and at worst cold. The buffet breakfast was served with beans which appeared not to have been heated and were always cold. A microwave is located in the dining room which gave us hope of warming up breakfast and evening meals. However when we opened the microwave there was green mould and fungi underneath the glass plate in a very thick layer all across the base of the microwave. Beware of the tea and coffee machine, the water that is supposed to be hot is only lukewarm and therefore the tea is not very good, with no kettle facility in the bedroom we purchased tea at cafes. There is a fresh juice machine but it is a very sweet reconstituted syrup that does not resemble fruit juice. there is always fresh fruit available and the waiters are friendly and helpful. The only thing thast lets this hotel down is the lukewarm food.

Stayed over Christmas / New Year period...probably our Sixth time at Jimesol. Beds and room really comfortable and clean. Breakfast very adequate and plentiful - real value for money. Room was clean and tidy and plentiful hot water. Like previous reviewer, I loved my sunny afternoon balcony at this time of the year - they beat me to 121 this year! 122 fine though!
Always a great holiday in Nerja at this hotel.

Room Tip: 121, 122, 123 for a sunny balcony.

We stayed at Jimesol for Christmas week - its location was perfect for us as we did not want a car - everywhere within walking distance - our review is as follows :

Reception - could not have been more helpful from directions to confirming our return transfer

Restaurant - we were on half board and enjoyed every meal - breakfast plentiful - well cooked and presented - Antonio was a great host in the restaurant and was also very knowledgable about the area- the Christmas evening meal was superb from presentation at table to the five course meal included in our half board with wine and a glass of champagne

Room - our room (121) overlooked the front of the hotel with a balcony which caught the sun all day - perfect - was cleaned every day including Christmas Day - the beds were comfortable with sufficient bedding - bathroom clean with plentiful hot water all day .

Public area was comfortable with plentiful settees just for chilling out

Roof pool - could not see this as it was being refurbished for the coming season

The only negative and this is very minor - is that we are early risers and would have liked to have been able to make a tea or coffee in our room at 6 30 as the restaurant did not serve breakfast until 8.30 but became used to a large glass of water !

We loved the hotel, the staff and Nerja iself - quaint shops and bars, cafes and restaurants and a very laid back atmosphere which promoted rest - we will definitely return to this hotel next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the sea if you want sun all day - other rooms if you need shade

We went here for 3 nights after our wedding , we just wanted to go to nerja as we love it . Found a bargin break on easyjet holidays we only paid £100 each including flights , we chose the Jimesol as we knew it was right near the balcon de Europe , the hotel was very pleasant and clean and our room was a nice size with a balcony over looking a little square and the room was cleaned every day , we did not use the restaurant so I can not comment on the food , but there is a wonderful tapas bar across the road , I would stay here again around the same sort of time (November) , but the bad bits are I would not stay in summer as it is right oppersite bar street and I think for us it would be noisy ,also although we did not use it as it was closed for winter ,the pool area was very tired and in a bit of a state but over all if you want a bargin it's a little gem right in the centre

Stayed here late October and could not fault it. Spacious room with large balcony overlooking the town. Breakfast was good and plenty of it. Staff very helpful and polite. Great value for money. We have stayed at worse for a lot more.
