Myself and two friends have just recently returned from a week in Las Rosas appartments and we wished we'd booked another week. We arrived late and were left a note on the door of reception to collect keys from nearby hotel, which we did all be it very amusingly. The appartments are very secure hence it did take us awhile to unlock gates and find our appartment but we were secure in the knowledge that not just anyone could wander around.
The 1 bed appt was very clean and spacious with everything you would need from iron...my friend squeezed one in her hand luggage...flight with ryan air lol typical ryan air flight, what else can I say they did my friend on way home for 50 euros cos bag was too big...she had bought duty free admittedly lol. Back to the room. We didn't have one of the best appts and looked out onto the roof of the nextdoor supersol (supermarket) but we weren't in our room much so it didn't bother us. It was very handy having the supermarket next door and very reasonably priced, made staying self catering work. The kitchen had everything full cooker, fridge with small freezer, microwave...and a kettle that took hours!!! to boil. The appts that overlooked the pool area looked lovely and they all had either a patio or balcony.
The grounds were absolutly beautiful and on a night the smell coming from the night scented stock was lovely, the caretaker was constantly working on them and kept all the grounds really clean and tidy he never stopped working. The pool was just right and it was very quiet the week we stayed so we often had it to ourselves. The sunloungers have matteresses and on the weekend when they weren't brought out you could tell the difference. I can imagine if the appts are very busy the pool area could feel very cramped, but for our week it was just right. Enjoyed lots of lazy days by the pool with the mountains in the backdrop.
The pool bar was run by a guy called Elvis...he made our holiday...he runs the bar separate from the hotel so needs people to spend to earn his own money...it was a quiet week so he was only open in the evening which was a shame because it made the pool area a bit too quite through the day...although, has we were leaving he was starting to open more. He stayed open till late and because it is at least a 20min walk to town or the beach front, his late open was more than welcome. He got to know us very well and was a very genuine guy interested in people. If you visit him tell him Rowena (trouble) said hola!!!! He also does a very wicked chocolate cocktail and he's not bad at a game of pool either.
There were a few other bars nearby...and the Viva Nerja a german bar did the best english breakfast around.
We visited the caves which were a 30min walk away very easy to find and worth the walk for the views. Everything is accessible on foot although the walk to the town and beach are down a steep hill ok going down not so good coming back. Nerja was a beautiful place not too big but big enough to shop, drink and eat really well. We will definately be back. We were going to take a trip to Granada but we didn't organise ourselves enough. If you are planning a visit you can pre book the Alhambra gardens and the buses to Granada run everyday. In Nerja town there is an excellent tourist information centre that are very helpful.
All in all we had a fantastic time we were not bothered by anyone from the appts but when reception was open they were more than helpful. On our last day we discovered you could get a fan for the room from reception and luckily no one was due straight into our rooms so they also allowed us a late check out. Both myself and my friends are looking to stay here again and would recommend these appts to any of our family and friends.
