Stayed in Hotel Carabeo over the weekend as we were out in Nerja for a friends wedding and it was such a find!! Absolute gem and a true boutique hotel. All the staff were fantastic, really helpful and really welcoming and the hotel itself is beautiful - couldn't stop taking pictures. We only stayed for 4 nights but it felt like we'd really escaped and found the perfect getaway. Really dissapointed we didn't get a chance to eat in the hotel but the tapas bar was super cute and really accomdating for veggies! Would highly recommend a trip.

Hotel Carabeo is an absolute oasis...Ideally located minutes walk from the Balcon it is a gem of a hotel. Other establishments pale in comparison to the beauty and attention to detail here. ..Rooms are beautiful- we stayed in the Carabeillo suite , which has a terrace and stunning seaview .Dining in Restaurant 34 is a must- food is sublime and surroundings spectacular. Even breakfast was amazing- freshly squeezed orange juice and an amazing buffet awaited each morning.However- the most wonderful aspect of this hotel has to be the staff- nothing was ever too much trouble and their professionalism and kindness were so appreciated...Jose, Maggi and Margaret are simply outstanding. W will certainly be back to enjoy this tranquil oasis again!

my partner and have had a heavy year at work and wanted somewhere quiet, relaxing and where we could feel a bit spoiled especially as we were going without the kids in tow. Hotel Carabeo certainly did not dissapoint. We stayed in the sea facing Calahonda Suite and it was beautiful. Big four poster bed, seperate lounge, tv with ALL the UK channels and the most amazing view of the med which I'm missing already. The pool is small more a dipping pool than a swimming pool but this didn't bother us at all as everyday we had it to ourselves and it was great to just cool off in it. The restaurant food was amazing and the set menu was excellent value, the specials seemed to stay the same which was a little dissapointing but on a four day trip we ate there 3 nights it was so good. The wine list is also good value and extensive on our first night we had a 1968 red for 50 euro... you just could not get that in London! I would highly recommend this hotel if you want a chilled, romantic relaxing short break. We drove to Granada to see Alhambra, the drive is about 1hr15mins but well worth it, go early if you can.

This hotel was the best we could wist for on our honeymoon. clean rooms, a good restaurant, great breakfast and a personal service by the crew made our honeymoon unforgetable. Whenever back in nerja we will definately book this hotel again.

We have been spending our wedding anniversary in Nerja for many years and always book a table at the hotel. The food and service are the best in town. Last autumn we decided to book a room at the Carebeo. Oh why didn't we do this before! The staff where friendly and helpful and we felt at home. The rooms are beautiful well designed and comfortable. It was a wonderful experience. We cannot recommend this enough.

Just about to book another week at the Hotel Carabeo in Nerja. I like to stay in the penthouse suite as a treat for my wife and myself and, although expensive, the price is not prohibitive. As before any booking, I always take a look at Trip Advisor and, being a regular visitor to the Hotel Carabeo, was most surprised to find unpleasant comments about the hotel, and thought I might add a few (pleasant ones) of my own.
I cannot compare other rooms as I have always stayed in the penthouse and found it to be of 5* standard. The suite spans the width of the hotel with sitting room (containing two sofas, one of which is a sofa bed) , TV area, more than comfortable bedroom with en-suite, and a wonderful private terrace overlooking the gardens and the Mediterranean. You cannot be more frontline than this, plus you are in the centre of town. My only criticism of the suite is that two TV's are two too many.
Whilst there are other frontline hotels in Nerja, the Hotel Carabeo is a family run, intimate boutique hotel, which is my preference.
The restaurant has great food, ambience with attentive staff, and the eclectic menu has proved to be of consistent quality. So if you stay there, or eat there, have a pre-dinner drink at the garden bar, which has great views of the coastline. Eat in the garden, soak up the atmosphere and ENJOY, it doesn't get much better than this.

Stayed here in August last year whilst attending a 30th birthday and cannot recommend this hotel enough!

Elegant rooms, lovely food in a very inviting restaurant and staff that could only try their hardest to help at all times.

The highlight was when the amiable proprietor sent over a bottle of champagne on the house!
