We visited in June 2014. This was our first visit to Spain and had hear comments re: Spains beautiful Nerja.
What a shock! The apartment was like a prison block! The room allocated was dirty and had a fishy aroma. The furniture was old, broken, ripped and stained, the curtains were hanging off the rails. We were adjacent to the lift and the clangs and bangs from the moving lift kept us awake. We were told our only option was an upgrade at an extra cost of 30 euro's. The room offered, though slightly bigger with a balcony, was also in a poor state of repair but no nasty smells. When we discovered the hob was broken and it couldn't be repaired we were given a portable, electric hob.The hob had exposed, frayed wiring which management insisted was safe to use! The electric hob and the bath had both been painted with gloss which was peeling off. The bathroom taps and the floor's grouting were thick with dirt, food from previous guest's was dried and smeared across the dinning table, kitchen cupboards were falling apart. But the most disgusting and upsetting part of the holiday was the GIANT COCKROACH on the bedroom wall above the beds!
This shouldn't be classed as cheap and basic it is a hovel!
The balcony overlooked the pool and hairs and dirt were clearly visible in all apartments water outlets, obviously this get's washed into the pool below! Even if we had wanted to use the pool we couldn't as the gate was never unlocked to let anyone in. The hotel manager was unhelpful during our stay although the man on reception duties was most apologetic and tried to help. The hotel manager has not responded to travel our agents correspondence.
I know it's nothing to do with the hotel but during the last few days of the holiday the sea was just a slick of raw sewage with toilet paper, sanitary towels and all manner of items people had flushed down the toilets! Police were kept busy moving beggars away from Nerja centre and the place seemed to have problems with it's own local drunks/alcoholics who hang around the park and slept under tree's a few feet away from the hotel. Street bin's were full and overflowing and the pavements were dirty.
We have had travelled far and wide and stayed in all sorts of accomodation but we would consider this the worst hotel and holiday we have ever edured!
