“Expensive, poor location and not very clean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

We stayed in a Villa with pool which was not very clean but spacious. Booked with breakfast which was a waste of money and shouldn't be booked at all. The location is poor as it takes about 30 min by foot to go into the town or the beach. There is a supermarket close by.

Clean and tidy apartments, well presented but somewhat isolated and well out of town. Many of the balconies get little or no sun.Close to entrance to Capistrano village. Upside is close to super sol supermarket which is cheap compared with smaller ones in town but became sick of climbing down and up a hill each time we wanted to venture out elsewhere, The real old town Nerja is situated around the balcony de Europe and a nice busy place to go especially in the evening, so this means a 20 min walk to go into town and even longer if you choose to walk back. Loved Nerja and will return but will stay more central as the climb eventually gets you down.
Ipad is useful as there are only 3 tv programs in english, bbc world news,cbns and Bloomberg no good if you want a night in.

Basic apartment accommodation for the cost, needs updating. Massive supermarket being built next door, so lots of noise and the street leading to the apartments are filthy. The builder's should be made to clean up their mess. All apartments look into each other, so no privacy. One thing in it's favour though, the rooms are spotlessly clean.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

I stayed here recently. The downside: the apartments are about 4 mins drive by taxi into town centre costs 7euro. It is about 15 mins walk down a steep hill to the beach, and it is about 20 mins back up a very steep hill this is good even for the young especially in the extreme heat.
The apartment pool area is tiny and the apartments and is almost claustraphobic, the balconies look directly onto it and there is not much space around the popl it feels like the apartments around it are closing in on you. The pool is very quiet but there is no view at all and some of the apartments are completely in the shade and one or two get the sun in the evening. There is no privacy as you look directly onto other peoples balconies and they can look onto yours, not very private and they are very close together. Stay in these apartments if you dont mind walking or not having a nice view and like quiet small places. I prefer hotels as there is more to see and do and generally they are closer to the beach. These apartments are not suitable for people who dont like walking or having difficulty. Also you have to pay to use a computer but there is free WiFi. There is NO printer with the computer and this is never good for me. Staff were ok but not overly friendly in terms of customer services.

The positives: apartments are spotless clean, very quiet and safe.

Room Tip: Maybe choose a villa. The apartments dont have an open plan kitchen. Get an apartment with a view...

We booked the holiday on the Saturday evening and by Monday lunchtime we were here. Accommodation was smart, clean and tidy. Good size rooms, well equipped an comfortable. The pool was ideal for our two kids (7&9) and nice and quiet. Air con was brilliant, the only criticism was the wifi was really sloooow. It was free, but I would have been willing to pay as it was practically unusable. Would also have been nice to get at least one kids English Channel, though our two seemed to warm to the German kids TV! Definitely worth the money, would go back again

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

Have just returned from 2 weeks here. We went as 2 families of 5 and stayed in 2 - 2 bed apartments.
The apartments were lovely and clean and the maid service was excellent.
As has already been said the pool was too small- it didn't stop the kids enjoying it. The reception staff were helpful.
For a young family the distance from the beach was a downfall, only because it is a steep hill on the way back, and in the heat it was hard work.
Another downside was the taxi service. Although very efficient they would only take 4 people due to licence laws -even if it was a people carrier! It's obviously meant having to pay for 2 each time we wanted to come back from the old town at night. Which we often did.
Never managed to find the onside shop!
Had a great holiday here and would recommend - but not to everyone....

We went as a 5 member family and stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. We thought it was really lovely. The pool was fantastic. The apartment was very clean, comfortable, spacious and within walking distance of the town, beach and supermarket. It was a easy bus journey from Malaga Airport to the city then out to Nerja.
In Nerja, we recommend the tapas bar called 'Los Barillos' and watching the sunset on the Balcony of Europa.
Overall very peaceful and relaxing. Will definitely say here again.
