“Comfort on a budget”
Reviewed 27 June 2011

Although only 2 star, we have stayed in 4 star hotels that have not been up to this hotel's standard. Our room was clean, modern and spacious and surpassed our expectations. Good size bathroom with a shower that works! Nice roof top terrace with a small pool. Location is ideal, reasonably quiet but being right near the balcon and close to all the restaurants and bars. All the staff were helpful and very friendly. Recommended without hesitation.

We stayed here for the final 5 days of our trip around Andalucia and it provided the perfect end to our holiday. This hotel is spotlessly clean with light and airy rooms in a central location (only 2 mins from Balcon De Europa and beach) with excellent service and all at an excellent price (75 euros per night). We stayed in many good hotels on our trip but none provided us with such a warm and cheery welcome as this one. All of the staff seem to work together as one to make sure your stay is as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. The hotel has a lovely bright feel to it (the pictures on the web site don't do it justice and make it look ever so slightly tacky in my opinion) with a lovely inner courtyard on the first floor and a rooftop pool area to enhance your visit. The only very minor criticism I would make is that there are no eggs of any description in the breakfast buffet, but this is purely a personal choice and I would definitely look no further than this hotel if we ever returned to Nerja, which I hope we will do in a few years time after we have visited all of the other places we would like to see.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Plaza Espana

Considering where this hotel is located, the public parking was very convenient; also, the hotel was helpful about making it convenient to drop our luggage off before parking.

Room Tip: Just booked and the room was fine.

I wil only add to the positive reviews - what a find! we relied on the reviews posted on this site - and so glad we did. It is very very clean and has everything you need (apart from the tea/cofee meking facilities in the room, but with the abundance of street cafes, that is not a problem). We have stayed in worse 4star hotels that charge more. It would be nice to have a water dispenser and cups in the hall, but again - we just bought water from the little shop. We loved the roof terrace for relaxing and again - everything was so clean. Free WiFi is a bonus and so it having a few more English channels (although it is definitely not necessary, we can watch TV at home!)
All in all - would definitely recommend as a base, especially if you do not have a car - it is so close to all the restaurants, the beach and the lovely old town centre. However, if you plan to go to Burriana beach (the bigger one with all the bards and restaurants along the seafront) - it is aabout a 20 min walk downhill, so be prepared to climb the hill on the way back!
Thank you Puerta del Mar for a pleasant and relaxing holiday!

A superb little gem right in the heart of Nerja. Because it is located in a pedestrianised area, there is no traffic noise whatsoever. Very peaceful. If it can be constructive critisism, I would suggest that a burco boiler be installed just for hot water for tea instead of the thermos jug. Bigger cups also. We like our cup of tea in the morning. The car parking was a little difficult, and a bit expensive if you chose the one nearest the hotel. Maybe the hotel could subsidise it somehow. €18.00 per day.
Top marks though.

Thank you trip advisee's, put it this way I've stayed in a lot worse 4* hotels, this place was totally amazing! A true gem and delightful. The hotel was superbly located just a few steps away from the Balcon, right in the centre of things, but as it was just off the main streets was also very quiet. A clean small hotel, very friendly, and the roof top sun terrace could cater for everyone. The whole experience was one I would recommend to anyone.
