Apartamentos Las Rosas de Capistrano
Ranked #6 of 57 Speciality Lodging in Nerja
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 June 2012

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.

Room Tip: Its worth seeing if you can have a room that is near the pool, although for the time spent in them t...

Found this place on booking.com. The apartment itself was basic but clean and had two bathrooms which was a bit of a luxury for two people. The complex is pleasant enough although the pool is quite small and had a tendancy to become quite crowded in the afternoons. It is around a 15-20 minute walk to Burriana beach, although the walk back involves a big hill which is fine if you have a good level of fitness. The apartment was set on two floors with living space and a kitchen downstairs and a large bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Both had balconies which were shady for most of the day and a nice place to have a glass of wine and a relaxing read. Wouldn't be my first choice of locations to stay but we had no real comlaints.

We had a great 2 weeks in the Las Rosas appartments, from 18th March to 1st April 2012. The 1 bed appt. was huge - big kitchen/diner/livingroom with lovely terrace and nice bathroom, then up (admittedly VERY) steep stairs to bedroom with 4 beds, further bathroom and terrace. Very convenient supermarket located next to block, beautiful gardens, well maintained and a swimming pool which looked inviting but was too cold to swim in. We enjoy walking so walking into town was part of the pleasure of the holiday. Also walked a lot in the Natural Park which started behind San Juan de Capistrano or could be reached by starting at the Caves. All in all a great holiday, a lovely appt. and we shall be back!

Room Tip: Nicest appartments overlook the swimming pool and I think the topfloor appartments are bigger than t...

Okay, so we went out there on a 'lads' holiday. We got there and the man checked my passport only (as I was the main name) Gave us the keys, told us when he would be in if we ever needed him. We walked around into the apartment and a lady was cleaning it all up in there. So we went accross the road to a German owned bar called 'Viva en Nerja' where we had an early start with a fresh beer. Walked back into the apartment and it was spotless and spacey. There were 4 of us there and my initial thought of this apartment was "this isn't going to be comfortable for 2 weeks with a 4 18 year olds. However, it was perfect! It really was!

We had a little kitchen, not that we ever cooked because we were always eating out but when we did chuck a pizza in the oven it was fine. The sleeping arrangments were more than good. We had our own space, our own space to put our suitcases (because we decided to never unpack!) Some of the other people staying at this place were amazing! They were friendly, they also tolerated out late arrivals at around 4-6am every morning!

After coming back from the beach at about 7-8 o clock, we'd have a dip in the pool where the sun was still out. See the perfect thing about the pool was the location because it had the sun right until the sunset! A bar was also opened too with a decent pool table!

Okay so maybe we never heard one thing from the staff or wasn't "welcomed" but we didn't need welcoming, we made ourselves at home and had an amazing holiday!

And the Viva en Nerja bar that I mentioned earlier, not only are they top class bar owners, they even sit down with you and have drinks and kept giving us shots on the house because we got on with them so well!

The location yes, was quite a way away from the beach. I'd been to Nerja for a couple of years so I knew my way around this place. So walking to the beach would take no more than 30 minutes. But when the suns out, you got your top off and an ice cold can of coke; walking is enjoyable. But even if you have never been before, Google maps is of good use to do your research before booking!

To walk from this hotel to the 'Fruti Tutti plaza' (Nightclub square) it was a good 50-60 minute walk, but taxi's were cheap so it was all good!

The best thing about this place overall was the price. I couldn't believe it; £480 for FOUR of us for TWO weeks. So that worked out to £60 each per week. I couldn't complain!

After reading most recent reviews I was a little concerned that perhaps I had made a mistake in booking an apartment here for myself and 10 year old daughter. However I was very pleasantly surprised and extremely happy with our apartment. We were given a large two bed apartment, even though we only booked a one bed one. It was very spacious, well equipped & had a very large terrace on the ground floor, really close to the pool. It was exceptionally clean, if not a little bit tired and of need of an update, but for the price a complete bargain.

There were several pools to choose from, which were not crowded, a supermarket next door and the town was walkable. My only gripe, and a small one, was that there was not a fan in the apartment, and in the middle of August this really is necessary. (you could buy one I suppose).

I would highly recommend these apartments, and may be returning again.

We booked on the advice of an advisor at Lowcost holidays, who thought this was suitable for an elderly lady in a wheelchair looking for a central, accessible self catering apartment in the sun.
The apartment was on the ground floor, but is situated on a steep hill, and accessible only by four steps. Not many, but too many for me, struggling with a wheelchair and its occupant.
A written message on a noticeboard outside the closed reception told us to phone a number to be given access. We had to borrow a mobile from the taxi driver, who was very worried about leaving us alone in the dark, but had to do so. After 20 minutes, a harrassed lady came with keys to the apartment, and a plan of the development showing which flat was ours. She did not work for the company, she said, and had to go home to her small children, so please find our own way. Eventually, she let us use her phone to call the "receptionist", who told us it was a public holiday, and hung up.

The flat was bitterly cold, and there was no heating. The beds were chilled, and there were 2 thin blankets each.I slept in my fleece jacket, with my coat above to let the old lady have my second blanket, but in the morning she was blue with cold. I put on all the cooker rings, and plugged in the kettle. The electricity went off with a bang.

Later, met "the receptionist " going into the office. He offered me one radiator - more would blow the electrics, he said,. and 2 more blankets. He said "You have plenty, and it is not cold."
The old lady was ashen.

We walked the 3 km into Nerja - me pushing the wheelchair, and lifting it up and sown the kerbs - and found the nicest apartments have stayed in anywhere, and at a very good price.
Please see my glowing review of Tobosso Aparthotel.....

Do NOT stay at Las Rosas - we met two families with young children who said they had been cold, they had been told there was a swimming pool for the kids, but it was closed, and that they would never book with Thomas Cook again...

We booked our stay at las rosas using as one factor the photos that were shown. On arriving at the location, we found our rooms to be very disappointing. Whilst several of the apartments were in the main block which did overlook the very pretty gardens and pool, the block ours was in certainly did not have a view of the gardens! Our balcony overlooked the roof of the adjacent Supermarket! We spent the whole week having to look at a sea of grey shingle, concrete and the back of large title letters! It really spoilt our holiday. At no point during our booking were we ever told that there was a block of apartments in this position or we certainly would not have chosen this development - well who would - but of course that's why they dont tell you! If you book an apartment here make sure you insist on having a view of the garden and pool!
