I have never missed a hotel before after leaving - but I miss the Palacio Blanco! I glanced at a photo of the rooftop pool the other day and I think I heart lurched at how much I wished I were there.
My husband and I spent the first week of our honeymoon at the Hotel Palacio Blanco and could not have had a better time. It was exactly the honeymoon we wanted, always having the option of a quiet day reading by the pool, or a day of activity exploring Velez-Malaga and nearby towns.
The owners, Nick and Lesley, are friendly, charming and neverendingly helpful. Providing excellent service for their guests is their top priority and it showed every day we stayed there. They helped us with excellent suggestions on where to eat, how to use local transport and what to see in the area. Plus they are just plain friendly people, always with a happy hello and a bit of a chat in the morning at breakfast.
The hotel itself is stunning. Impeccably clean, inviting and comfortable. It also feels very private whether having breakfast in the courtyard or sunning yourself on the breathtaking pool deck. It truly has that special feeling of a boutique hotel.
There were days we barely left the hotel at all - the honesty bar, sun loungers on the rooftop deck, and the pool were enough to keep us happy. But the days we ventured out we had a lovely time. There is plenty to see in the area, whether you just want to explore a quaint andalucian village, visit the beach or explore the nearby caves at Nerja you won't run out of activities.
My husband and I left the last few days of our honeymoon unbooked because we figured we would pick up some local tip of a nearby gem of a seaside town we might visit to close out our trip. By the end of our first week we knew we just wanted more of the Palacio Blanco so after visting Granada we went back to Velez for an extra two nights at the Palacio Blanco. It was heaven and we will definitely be going back on an anniversary in the future.
