We spent a week at the Puerta del Mar in October on our first visit to Nerja. The location is perfect - right near the 'Balcon' and an array of restaurants, cafes, shops and with easy access to the beaches. We had a street view from our small balcony, which was fine - but possibly other rooms would not have a great view given the hotel's position between other buildings. The hotel was spotlessly clean and our room was spacious and well-equipped. Breakfast was OK. We loved Nerja - really pretty and a lovely atmosphere, helped by the festival which took place over 3 days during our visit (we accepted this would mean a certain amount of noise up to 5am!!). We went to the Alhambra in Granada by car which was very straightforward (just over an hour's drive) and worthwhile. We parked our hire car a few minutes' walk away from the hotel in a free carpark, as recommended to us by the hotel staff, who were always obliging and helpful. We will definitely go back to Nerja sometime soon and most likely to the Puerta del Mar - we didn't see anything that would offer better value for money and in such a good location.
