RIU Hotels do not disappoint and this one has all you need for a comfortable short or long stay. We were there in late February and the view from our room was of high rolling waves in the Mediterranean. Inside the hotel it was cosy; there were plenty of nooks inside to relax and read or play on the computer or visit with friends. The food buffets provided choice and the service was lovely. We were there on my birthday and without our saying anything, staff placed a bucket of champagne at our dinner table. It was a nice treat. I am ambulating with a walker and was given a room with a spacious bathroom. We also enjoyed the pool, exercise room and massage service. I think families would enjoy this hotel in summer as it is right on the promenade with the beach on one side and the hotel pool on the other. Strolling on the promenade, taking photos, and shopping in the neighborhood are all possibilities from this hotel. We have been many times to Nerja so did not go into the main village but it holds attractions for those who have time and the interest, particularly for a wider array of shops and restaurants.
