Just returned from 11 nights at this hotel (our 4th visit).
From the minute you arrive you are made to feel welcome by the exceleent and helpfull staff on reception.
The rooms are nicely and adequatly furnished, most with limited but decent views of the sea.
Adequate plug sockets. hairdryer, air-con plus very quiet additional ceiling fan. We found the beds to be comfortable with extra bedding if required on request.Reasonably priced mini-bar and ample wardrobe space. Shortly after arrival in room a phone call to ask if you were happy with your room (nice touch). Nice change to have hot water at all times. People complain about the towels in the review but we didnt find it an issue.
Room and balcony with 2 chairs and table kept very clean as was the rest of the hotel.
The high variety and quality of food could not be faulted. It was absolutely superb.
Table for dinner (2 sittings) allocated on entry to the restaurant on the first night after which you are given the option to change table or times The managent keep a close eye on all aspects of the hotel as can be seen by their very regular visible presence.
Free wi-fi for one and a half hours continuous use available in reception area plus use of 2 x PCs at cost of 1e for 12 mins or 2e for 30 mins.. Ample sun-beds etc for sunbathing . Nice but cold swimming pools plus indoor pool and gym /spa area.
We found nice place to have a drink or bite to eat at lunchtime situated as you leave the hotel beach gate on Low ground floor level sea front 20 yds to the right called COBOS. A more limited but excellent sandwich/snack menu with hosts, Michelle and Agnes is available at the SHIP directly opposite the hotel. Its a great atmosphere and beer/large brandies @2.5euros.
There are 2 supermarkets just to the left of the hotel the cheaper and better being the 2nd one (not the Jamaica).
Overall I would highly recommmend this hotel and the lovely resort of Nerja for an enjoyable holiday.
The only downside on this occasion was the weather(beginning of November) 9 out 0f 11 days of rain!!.(unusual for that time of year)
