“Romantic getaway to Nerja”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

My girlfriend and I spent two nights at Hotel Avalon, which was amazing! The view from our terrace was spectacular. The staff were incredibly nice and fantastic. We had forgotten a picture when we left and they were kind enough to mail it back to us. Oh! and the food was so DELICIOUS!!! Thank you Alix and Kevin for the great hospitality and wonderful memories!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hostal Avalon for two nights. The view from our hotel balcony was absolutely stunning. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room was equipped with everything we needed. The hotel staff was lovely as well. However, the food blew us away. Even the bread was amazing. Each dish was perfectly seasoned and paired with sauces that brought out the incredible and fresh taste of the dish. I would highly recommend the hostal and the restaurant to anyone and everyone.

Only stayed one night, however our room was spotless and service terrific. Its the little things that impress like offering rugs when we decided to sit out on the terrace at night. We ate dinner which was excellent, again it was noticed that one of our party has some pate left but no meba toast, it arrived at our table without request.
Two tiny minus comments, breakfast does not start til 9.00, a bit late if you need to get going and if you come from Malaga direction you may well miss it, get to Nerja and turn round, coming from Nerja its easy to see.

Our son Brendan and his lovely bride Justyna had their Wedding Blessing and Reception in Hostal Avalon on 21st September this year ! For a party of 50 it is perfect, we sat 44 persons to Dinner.
The food, prepared by Chef/Patron Kevin was superb, with a nice touch of up-market Tapas on a Slate for starters. The staff, headed by Co-Owner Alix could not have been more attentive, down to the last detail. Everything went like clockwork, but in a very nice and friendly manner. Justyna's Family stayed in the Six Double Rooms available and were more than impressed, the view are spectacular, Mountains and Sea !
We will certainly be going back if only for Luch or Dinner, have to sample Kevins cuisine again,

We stayed for 2 nights at El Avalon with children at 2 and 4 years of age. The view from the balcony outside of the room was fantastic, and the staff outstanding as they did everything to make 2 busy parents get the best out of the stay. At the El Avalon we got the best food in Nerja delivered straight up to the rooms balcony together with candle lights and excellent wine. The room was very comfortable, and a family of four slept well in clean and good size environment.

All our meals at the hotel was of high quality, and we would strongly recommend both the restaurant and the hotel for anyone travelling to Nerja, Spain.

The views are amazing from this property. So is the price and staff. We had a good stay here but if you don’t have a car I would not stay here. It is a ways out of town. Even with a car it was sometimes hard to find parking in the city center. We opted to not get breakfast as I felt it was to expensive for what you got. We did get coffee every am which was fantastic. Also the Sangria was a bit over priced. It was $15 Euros for a picture. I got great tasting Sangria in town for $5. Overall great stay for the price and would not haste to go again. I just know I wont be eating at the hotel.
