Both myself and my wife had walked along the beach in January '14 and decided after our efforts we deserved a coffee. We had seen the Avalon from the road on many occasions but never ventured into it. We climbed the steps and sat on the most beautiful terrace with views right across Nerja. The terrace, remember it was january,... More

My wife and I dined there for lunch today for the 1st time, we will certainly return. The food was beautifully presented and tasted fabulous. The owners, Alix and Kevin, both made us feel very welcome. The views of the sea, from the dining terrace , added to the occasion, all in all, a great dining experience, at a sensible... More

The summer of 2013 we rented an apartment in Nerja. During our stay we discovered El Avalon and decided that if we ever came back we would stay at this charming hotel. We simply fell in love with the place and the delicious food. Kevin is a wonderful chef and Alix seems to have control over everything else. The staff... More

We stayed there earlier this year and just had to go back, we stayed again last week and have re-booked again for October. Kevin and Alix run an efficient and friendly ship, nothing is ever too much trouble and the staff, all local, are superb. The rooms are clean, comfortable and cosy, all with private balcony overlooking the sea and... More

We stayed at the Hostel Avalon for 3 nights at the end of our tour of Southern Spain. And it was the perfect end to our holidays. A lovely small hotel with amazing views and in a perfect location just across from the road from a quiet beach! It is 2 kms from the centre of Nerja which is easily... More

Having stayed last year we returned this year because the rooms are quiet & comfortable and the food is great. Service is friendly and flexible. We love dining on the terrace overlooking the sea and the mountains, the food and wine are excellent. The only thing we dislike is that there are no shutters or blackout curtains which means the...

The Avalon on the Costa Del Sol was a pleasant surprise from the location, view and management/owners. Nerja is an English retirement village essentially that is trying to keep the original feel and flavor of the area by imposing building codes somewhat like Santa Fe. The holtel was being bought and referbished by an English couple that described the hotel... More

We stayed at the Avalon with family for a full week in May and we cannot fault the accommodation or the restaurant. The rooms were clean and tidy and had all the mod cons you need for a relaxing break. The views from all of the room terraces were excellent looking out to the beach and towards Nerja. The hotel...

Avalon's rooms have balconies and views to the sea and mountains. The location is at Punta Lara, 2,5 km from Nerja centre, but the distance is walkable by road or the beach. There are some nice tapas/seafood places on the way, open till 18/19. There is no pool but you can rent sunbeds down at the beach in a couple... More
