Our double en-suite bedroom had recently been refurbished to a high standard. The inclusive breakfasts are excellent and the food quality at lunch and dinner, expertly prepared by Kevin, is top...

We love sitting out on the balcony with a bottle of vino. Everyone at the Avalon is super friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The restaurant is renowned and... More

The room with a balcony overlooking the town of Nerja and the mountains beyond was perfect. Alex and Kevin were gracious hosts and Kevin's meals... More
