“Excellent Apartments”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

My wife and I have just returned from a 10 day stay at the Las Rosas 2 Apartments in Nerja. We arrived in the early hours of June 4th 2013, overly tired from our journey, to find a note on the door of reception stating that we had to pick up our keys from the Hotel Club Nerja, which is approximatly 100mtrs away on the other side of the main road. Once we had picked up our keys we then had to find our apartment, which was no easy task as the layout is a little confusing and the room numbers were not easy to find. But once we'd found our apartment, which was P17, we were pleasantly suprised. The Apartment was very spacious and had a seperate bedroom with 2 good sized, comfortable beds. The kitchen area was well equiped with a full sized electric oven, a 4 ring electric hob, a large fridge freezer, a microwave oven, an electric kettle, a toaster and a coffee maker. Both the seating area and the bedroom open out onto a large semi private balcony, which had a patio table and chairs, ideal for eating alfresco. The balcony everlooked the beautifully maintained gardens, the pool and the poolside bar, which was pretty quiet during our stay but apparently gets quite busy through July and August. The bedding and towels were changed twice during our 10 day stay, which suited us fine as there was little disruption. The resort centre and beach were about a 15 minute walk along the main road, with ample bars and restaurants enroute. Although the walk back is slightly up hill it's not too bad, i'm 54 and my wife is 46 and we found it to be a veary pleasant stroll. There are also bars and restaurants close to the apartments. We had an enjoyable and relaxing stay at the Las Rosas 2 Apartments and hope to return one day soon.

From the moment we arrived, we were greeted cheerfully & warmly. The apartment was spacious, very comfortable and the kitchen area was well stocked with lots of cooking apparatus. We travelled to Granada, Frigiliana, Nerja Caves, all on local transport. All in all, it was a memorable experience. We are returning to Las Rosas, at our first opportunity. Can recommend Las Rosas to anyone. Go and enjoy.

We stayed here for a week in March and were very happy with the apartment. The free wi-fi was excellent; easy access to Burriana beach and to the centre of town, with a great supermarket next to the apartment. Receptionist was very very helpful. These apartments are spacious and clean, would recommend.

If you need a relaxing break then the Las Rosas may be for you. It is a apartment Hotel and self catering. my wife and i have enjoyed our stays in the complex and tend to go late in the year and we have been told that during the summer high season it can be very busy. Our room has always been clean and we have tried different ones. There is no daily maid service bedding and towels have been changed once through our visits and we are happy with this. What should be noted the run up to the Hotel is very steep so if you have any mobility issues it could be difficult and there are a lot of steps. the people we have met while there tend to be returning customers. The supermarket is only a short walk so if eating in is what you want the shopping is good quality with a good wine selection. If you want to go to town and eat ou there is a local bus service but we enjoy the walk after lazing in the sun around the pool area but it is downhill then uphill on the return. We like it so we are returning again this year. For travel from the airport checkout the Nerja website if you don't want to hire a car.

Room Tip: All rooms have easy access to the pool and the bar

Just returned from a week in a ground floor apartment in this complex. It's not 5 star but then the cost is not 5 star either.

The apartment was generally clean but why don't maids realise they have to clean the back of doors which open against a wall? A common fault. In this case the back of the toilet door was none too clean.

The covering of the sofa bed had seen better days and I would not like to think in what condition it may be after a busy season, its only February and you expect everything to be perfect wouldn't you?

The beds were comfortable but those who like duvets will be disappointed.

The small oil filled radiator hardly had an effect and the evenings were chilly.

The complex is quite a way from a beach and the town centre. If you don't like walking then I suggest finding a different part of Nerja to stay.

The staff were friendly and helped with a couple of issues which needed their attention. They don't offer much advice however, you had to ask and the office was only open in the mornings. At other times it would men a walk across the road to a nearby hotel.

Local restaurants not to our taste. They offered such items as fish and chips, all day breakfast etc. To town has some good restaurant but again it means a walk of a kilometer or two.

Room Tip: No view from ground floor other than another apartment complex across a sports complex.

This turned out to be a disappointing choice of apartment. We went for Christmas and on arrival, the complex was quiet and the apartment seemed ok, although cold. We asked for a heater and were given a small electric radiator which was very inefficient (it was cold early morning and from 6 pm). The apartment was also very dark inside. After several days, a large cockroach fell from the ceiling light in the bedroom onto my husband in bed. It was alive at the time and he managed to kill it. The next morning, the girl at reception, who spoke very little English, was not surprised and said they were everywhere! Someone came to spray the apartment, although he only did this sparsely. The real problem was a few days later when I turned the fan of the oven on and a load of dead cockraoches fell into the cooker hood. This was Christmas Day and we spent the afternoon looking for a hotel in town and subsequently moving into it (incidentally, a lovely hotel called Hotel La Ermita, very clean with polite staff and only £30 a night for B&B). When I returned the keys to the apartment and explained why we had left early, they offered no apologies (or indeed, any response at all). I would definitely not recommend these apartments. They are also quite a long way out of town and a long trek back from the beach. Very disappointing.

Room Tip: Definitely not a ground floor room - ours was small, dark and dingy. Choose a room that overlooks th...

And what a fabulous week!
Desperate to get away from the rain. We couldn't have chosen a better place to go, to wash an English summer away. As Rowena said it was a bit like a scene from Benny Hill getting the keys and getting in, but yes it did make you feel secure.
The rooms were really well equipped with all mod cons, downstairs there was a washing machine that could be used. Very clean, bedding changed and clean towels in the middle of the week. A view of the pool would have nice, but when you consider we got it for a really good price, it didn't matter too much, just luck of the draw I suppose. Staff were very friendly, ensuring the complex was clean and tidy.
The gardens were lovely, tended to daily, pretty little flowers just popping their heads out, cool green grass, making the walk up to the apartment an added extra.
The area was quiet, that suited us fine. A couple of bars further up the hill.
But they all paled into insignificance when the pool bar at Las Rosa opened. Hassani (Elvis) owner of the bar, he really made everybody feel welcome. We had some great nights just sat round the pool drinking a San Miguel, or a cocktail. Serving little nibbles and generally ensuring a night at his bar was a good one. Locals also drink there so I guess that was the place to be and it was on our doorstep!! The locals at the bar were really friendly, which made it easy to be there. We sometimes only intended staying for one drink then going into town, but ended up staying. It was my birthday whilst we were over there, Elvis invited us for dinner at the pool. Making an authentic Moroccan tagine, which was the best meal I had while over there, seriously. Definitely recommend a visit to this bar if you are in the area.
The pool was blue and cool, which was a welcome dip when the sun was at its peak. The weather the whole week was simply beautiful. We just lazed around the pool or wandered off into Nerja for the day. There is a market nearby on Tuesdays, which sells the usual stuff but there were also nice bits of pottery and clothing.
Nerja is a bout 20 mins Rowena pace, a 35 min Pippa and Rose Pace, but well worth it As the streets are authentically Spanish, coming across little squares which were used by both locals and tourists alike. Nerja itself is lovely just to pobble about in, have something to drink and watch the world go by, eat or shop. Lots of interesting little coutyards, not too busy, but getting busier as the week went on. A Beautiful town. Walking home, its as if the whole town has got together and decided that night scented stock is their flower, the scent catches you and you breath it in, Gorgeous. I felt safe all the time I was there.
If you are planning to visit the Alhambra Gardens, which we planned to, you really need to book it before you go, as it felt like a chore trying to get hold of tickets, so we didn't bother in the end.
In a nutshell, this is one of the lovelier places to visit. We had a fantastic Holiday, and would definitely go back again. Great place to go for a chilled, kick back holiday.
