“Disappointed - Will not be back”
Reviewed 6 June 2011

The best rooms do not appear to be on offer through an agent. They are reserved for those booking direct. To change rooms from the back to the front of the hotel cost me another 142 Euros. We were told that in the future if we wanted a room at the front we should book direct.
The rooms are advertised with air conditioning. It was very hot in May but they would not switch it on because they did not think it hot enough, we were given a small fan - useless.
One of the doors on a kitchen cabinet was broken and swinging lose and no effort was made to repair it over the ten days we were there.They advertise a solarium but this is now permanently closed and there was no reception after 3 pm, A good situation though , close to the beach and shops.

OK, to start, I booked a surprise holiday though an online agent for a christmas present. I looked on here for reviews and was a little worried by what I saw. When we flew out, we arrived late to the hotel, about 11.15pm. The front gates where locked and we had to use a security buzzer to be let in. Now, I honestly found this reassuring rather than worrying and , once allowed in, keys were handed to us very quickly by the owner. We were allocated room 208, a room with no balcony, but we knew this anyhow.
The room was small, but spotless.
We pushed the two single beds together and created a double, which was fine for us. There was an air conditioning unit that worked lovely, but as with all aircons, was a bit loud. Not the hotels fault.
The location of the hotel is cracking. It is around 5 mins walk to the beach and less than 10 to town centre. There is free parking outside the hotel and we left our car there for several days with no trouble although the hotel does have secure parking for 12 euros a night.
There are numerous supermarkets within walking distance to the hotel, one literally next door. However, we did find Lidl up the road. Much cheaper.
THere is a laundry facility there, but we didn't get chance to use it.
The reception is open from ten till three and they are extremely helpful and will go out of their way to help.
The pool really is that small, but after all, your only a couple of minutes from the beach and why stay next to the pool when nature has supplied something much more beautiful. We had a little trouble with noise on our fifth day, some more people turned up with a loud stereo. The hotel sorted it out very quickly and no more noise was heard.
No direct sun in morning into rooms. Fab as the rooms don't heat up and are quite cool when its hot outside.

One more thing to say. We found this a brilliant little hotel to base ourselves from. We aren't people to sit around the pool and this is a brill little hotel to see more of Andalucia from. And as a surprise,we've booked back fro the same next year and if you book a second time with them, they will give you a chunky discount. We can't wait to go back there.

Me and a friend stayed at this hotel last year may.. It was two girls in our earlie 20s.. I know the time we went was not peak season so not busy.
We arrived at night bout 11.30pm.. Was greeted by a gentleman who was very helpful.. We got in our room. The room was fine.. Just like any other self catering.
We was here for seven nights.
During our stay we did found that the wall was thin and could hear people coming bk at early morning. At one stage we got two males knocking on our door to go for coffee.
Location is abit middle nowhere.. The a nearby beach across the road but dirty so for a clean beach bout 20min walk.
Supermarket 10min away

We were prepared for basic accommodation afterall that is what we booked & paid for (£87 for the week). We stayed in a studio, small but had everything we needed, hot plates & surprisingly iron, iron board, kettle, toaster, microwave. Staff were helpful & friendly. Location was spot on not far from beach, bars, restaurants, sights etc. Jamacia restaurant was reasonably priced and good food, Mexican in the lanes was ok but quite
expensive, smugglers inn was a good place to watch sport and the drinks were reasonably priced.

our three apartments were clean and suited our requirements, all three had balconies at the front of the building and in full sun, (i think we were lucky )..great location, near to shops,close to beaches, great food nearby both spanish and english..(try Don Juans lovely steaks or lamb shanks, or the superb fish at the codfathers) the Jamaica too,..
supermercado and farmacia are close nearby, a great budget base to explore nerja on foot....no complaints....except we didnt have a kettle, or telly remote, and you do only get one roll of toilet paper..but heyho....

You get what you pay for. Essentailly a well placed block of basic apartments which are well equipped for a self catering holiday where you'll be mainly eating out. We travelled with our 1 year old and asked for a travel cot to be provided which it was free of charge along with bedding too. We booked an apartment with a balcony thinking we would be able to store the buggy on the balcony if there was no other space but we needn't have bothered because the apartment was easi;y big engh with a choice of parking spots and also plenty room for the large travel cot to be placed in our bedroom. Plenty bedroom storage and plenty storage space in the kitchen too although just a ceramic hob and a microwave but we were only making tea or warming a bottle.
The apartment block is well placed in Nerja with plenty bars and eating places and supermarkets on its door step and the well serviced Torecilla beach 5 minutes stroll way.
Staff were healpful and pleasant and it made a difference having a reception desk

Paid about £120 for flights and accommodation online so wasnt expecting much. BUT the hotel was well placed for beach, nightlife, food, markets and public transport to other resorts and tourist spots. Staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms were basic but clean. I loved nerja, relaxing, cheap and friendly. dont bother getting a taxi from the airport, too expensive at ninety euros just get the bus, the drivers are helpful and efficient for about three euros instead. going back this year same hotel because its unbelievable value.
