“Lovely restful week”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We spent a week in Nerja at the Parador arriving on 28th September. Lovely hotel and staff and a superb buffet breakfast. Hotel is set on the clifftop with its own lift to the beach. It has lovely gardens all overlooking the sea with plenty of loungers. Our room was very comfortable and clean though the decor was a bit tired. All balconies had their own winddown sunshade which was a great boon at midday.
There was such a choice of restaurants in Nerja that we didn't eat dinner in the hotel though the menu sounded lovely, We plan to return and next time to eat in the hotel. We had such a peaceful and restful week it certainly re-charged our batteries. It was very good value as they were charging 50% off for over 55s.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the sea with a balcony. Some are on the ground floor with terrace which do not...

Location,location,location.Superb location with ample free parking space.Ecellent grounds overlooking the beach and with lift access.And now the rest of my review.Average food which is very expensive and tired rooms.My main gripe is that the reception staff i met were lacking in not having any personality,unhelpful and rude.I do expect happy staff who appear to enjoy their job which is to look after and help visitors.

We have just been in Nerja Spain, The Parador Hotel was well above expectaions. The hotel have a lovely garden set up with a view of a beach and the sea. Apart from a couple of grey days the weather picked up and the holiday was great. The hotel was very clean and the staff very friendly. We only ate there one night which was ok. We hade lunch most days and this was really good, especially the Tapas we had. Again with a seaview to go it could not be faulted.

Room Tip: We requested Seaview and we got a 2nd floor room, next time I think we should ask for top floor seav...

A great hotel in prime location, just an elevator away from the beach and a short walk to the town centre. Great views from hotel room balcony. Could see the lights on coast of North Africa at night. Breakfast very good with great views of the med. This hotel was spotlessly clean with great staff who were polite and courteous and who could'nt do enough for their guests. A bit expensive though.

Room Tip: Pick a room with a view and overlooking the Med. with a double bed and not two singles pushed togeth...

Well located in a prime location with great views over the Mediterranean. We found the hotel relaxing and comfortable. The staff were both attentive and friendly and made for a pleasant stay.

We spent only one night at this Parador and for dinner we choose the 'Menu de Degustacion' this turned out to be a good choice, with excellent wines...

In conclusion, an above average Parador experience...

Room Tip: Go for a sea view.

We stayed at the Parador de Nerja for 1 night at the end of a villa holiday and will definitely go back next year for a longer stay. The gardens, huge pool and views are spectacular and the lift down to the beach a real bonus, especially on the way back up, after 2 helpings of Ajo's paella at lunchtime!!

Yes, the hotel is a little old-fashioned, but that includes the service, which is excellent and so rare these days. We had a standard room, with very comfy bed, plenty of room, a big balcony with sunshine most of the day and everything was spotlessly clean.

Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the vast expanse of sea was a real highlight, with a fantastic choice of high quality food, very good service and the sort of coffee you always want, but very rarely get.

Thank you to the team at Nerja Parador who make this a very special hotel.
