“Simply the Best”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Great value. Spotlessly clean unbelieveable. Staff excellent, so helpful. Lovely relaxing areas with lots of plants. Plenty of sun beds and although the pool is small its so clean and welcoming. I wish people would look more carefully at what they pay for accomodation. This hotel is excellent value.
The breakfast was continental and very varied. It was always restocked with fresh produce. The position of this hotel alone in Nerja makes it a gem of a place. I have been there twice this year and would like to say big thank you to all staff for making our stay so special. We will return next year.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice. I liked the small balcony. Very quite. Rooms at the front entrance are cooler ho...

This is a little gem of a small hotel hidden down a side street off the main plaza in Nerja. It is only 2 star and wow - what a experience. Extensive breakfast buffet every morning (no hot food). A lovely roof top sun terrace with plenty of sun loungers and a small pool, perfect for an hour or two in the sun. We had 2 rooms (a triple and a double). The rooms were spotless and beds very comfy and excellent air conditioning in each room. We couldn't fault anything in this hotel. It has no bar, which is probably why it has a 2 start rating, but you don't need one as all the bars are so close by. They have a great changing/shower facility in the basement, with 2 showers, changing room and bathroom. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing negative to say and would highly recommend a stay here again.

Lovely Hotel, very close to shops, bars and some fantastic places to eat. Hotel just off the central location so you can get a decent nights sleep! Rooms are very clean, ours was a little on the small side, i'm sure there are bigger rooms, but we were last minute booking. We were located to the front of the hotel on second floor, tiny balcony for one, directly opposite offices, so you had to be careful when opening balcony doors - full view of the office workers! Shower was abit 'iffy' hot one minute, freezing cold the next. Clean fluffy towels every day - lovely. Not many electric sockets, just the one double socket, one being the telly. Reception staff were very helpful, not a problem for them to supply us with a kettle, cups and has much milk as we wanted. Breakfast is plentyful, i think the eating area could be a little welcoming, the furniture is basic, tables not laid for breakfast, so it's help yourself, but items are well stocked by staff. Lovely pool, a welcoming dip after a hot sticky day, plenty comfy sunbeds. I would definately stay here again and recommend to friends and family.

This is a real gem of a hotel in Nerja. I think it's a family run business and considering it only had two stars above the door - my Dad and I could not find fault with it. It's slap bang right in the centre of the town, giving you easy access to all the local restaurants, tapas bars and the Balcon de Europe.

It has an excellent sun terrace with small but adequate pool, perfect for a cool-off dunk after a afternoon of sunbathing. Considering it's location, once our room balcony door was closed you couldn't hear any street noise (not that Nerja is that type of resort anyhow).

The room we had was a decent size and very clean. Everyday we returned from exploring to find beds made and fresh towels. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. A few days before we left the man on reception called the Spanish airport transfer company and arrange everything for us, confirming our pick up time and details with them.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to all my friends and family

This is a lovely little hotel. It's in a convenient location, right in the centre of the old town. It's peaceful, despite its central location. The rooms are clean, and are cleaned daily (even on a Sunday). The man on Reception was extremely helpful and friendly. There's plenty of choice at breakfast time. Our room didn't have a balcony, but there's a central courtyard area guests can use. The rooftop pool is a good size for a fairly small hotel, and there are plenty of umbrellas and sunbeds. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in a fantastic hotel in a central location in this lovely resort.

My husband and I have just come back from a weeks holiday, after staying at this perfect small hotel. This was our first visit to Nerja and what a fantastic impression the hotel and area has left on us. Obviously you don't know what to expect, when you haven't been before, but we always look on Trip Advisor to get a better idea before we book. The hotel is the cleanest one I have ever been in and we have been to quite a few over the years. It is a pleasure to come into. We found the staff extremely helpful and polite and nothing was too much trouble for them. The location is in a quieter side road, near the main square, where the atmosphere and variety of restaurants and shops is really varied. The rooftop pool is a little gem and the continental breakfast was excellent. For us, it was a perfect holiday and rest. We would definitely like to come again, Thank you, Puerta del Mar.
