Having stayed here last year, we knew roughly what to expect. Superior rooms with side sea view are a really good size, with plenty of storage and depending on which way they face, offer morning or afternoon sun. As mentioned by another reviewer, the limited toiletries in the bathroom is noticeable - cut backs maybe? Food quality and choice had...

We had high hopes of this hotel for our 11 day stay and were not disappointed! We were allocated a fabulous room with a massive balcony. The food in the dining room was excellent - always hot and plenty of choice. The service, we feel is what makes this hotel so outstanding as it is second to none. Everyone is...

A pleasant hotel recently refurbished. The rooms are large and comfortable with a good bathroom. The staff is friendly and service minded and tries to speak, besides English, a few words German, French, Dutch, Danish and maybe more! The food is fresh and abundant, but eating with more than 200 persons from a buffet in one big dining hall is...

Our room was on the floor under reception, with a walkway outside our balcony. We were ok with this as we didn't intend using our balcony that much. The room was very comfortable and we had a great shower. However, I was very surprised by the lack of toiletries in our room. All we had were two little hand soaps...

Very tastefully refurbished hotel. We were made most welcome by friendly engaging staff and standard of food was maintained throughout the week. Being on the sea front and close to town centre made this an ideal location for a perfect holiday. We would certainly be pleased to return. Nerja itself is a beautiful resort with loads of lovely restaurants and...

Wonderfully clean, open and airy with really good sized rooms and excellent staff. The hotel is situated on the sea front with a private gate out onto the promenade at the rear. The main road at the front has small café/bars and mini supermarkets all offering very good friendly service. The main town is a very short walk away and...

The location of this hotel is good and a 10 min walk into Nerja centre. The good points are the rooms are a good size and the beds very comfortable. We had room 323 and the minute we went into the room there was a very strong smell of drains. We asked to be moved but they said it was...
