First impressions - old fashioned, decor out of date, room smelt of damp and fags!
In the light of day - actually not too bad, clean, well kitted out (toaster, fridge, shower, kettle, microwave) - glad we asked for a balcony as some studios didnt have one and would have hated that! We were in room 310, to the rear of the property. Overlooked residential apartments and a car park, lovely and quiet, no problems,
Staff - Not over friendly, but not rude. Efficient - We had a leaky tap and it was fixed within hours of reporting it.
Cleaning service - Minimal but effective. Towels changed every 3 days (more if you ask). Beds changed weekly (again, you can request more bedding without any problems). You do your own cleaning with the brush/mop provided. I actually liked this as it meant no disturbances when you just wanted to chill in your apartment :0) you also need to provide your own replacement loo rolls, but this is standard if you were self catering in the UK and is probably one of the reasons it's so cheap to stay there. Communal areas and apartments were of a good standard of cleanliness overall so no complaints.
Pool - Pointless! Tiny, no sun loungers and doesn't get the sun. We gatecrashed the nearby 4* hotels to use the pool, lol!
Beach - Fab access to the quietest beaches - most recommended is the one to the right of the hotel, follow the footpath opposite and it's behind the big 4/5* hotel. Literally 5 mins walk. Fab!
Shops - 2 supermarkets within 1 mins walk.
Restaurants - Loads within 1 mins walk.
Resort centre - Around a 15 minute pleasant and safe walk.
Nerja overall - beautiful. Not too commercialised, loads of shops, restaurants, beaches and walks. Weather was mostly lovely 23-28 degrees, one or two cloudy or windy days.
Recommended day out - Donkey Sanctuary - about a 20 minute walk, feed the donkeys and make a donation - run by a lovely English family. Good on them!
Enjoy your hols :0)
