This is a one of a kind find. There are only 6 rooms and each one opens to a terrace overlooking the ocean. Meticulously clean, good quality linens and towels, spacious rooms and a restaurant that is serves a great breakfast and wonderful dinner. Walk down the stairs to the beach, just far enough outside Nerja proper to be less crowded and more quiet. But the best thing about this place is the people who run it, they are delightful, kind, helpful and really make you feel like they want you to come back!

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Avalon in the beginning of January. Definitely "off-season" - but definitely NOT off-season accomodation and service. The owners and managers, Alex and Kevin, are truly exeptional with regard to both the accomodations- and restaurant aspects of the "Hostal". (That the owners maintain the term "hostal" is actually very charming. It is definitely FAR above normal "hostal" standards!) The location just south of "downtown" Nerja, is no problem at all. It's about a 20-min walk along the beautiful beach - and 5 min by car. Alexandra is a font of knowledge as to local conditions, history, etc - and Kevin is simply a wonderful and highly creative cook. I have stayed at numerous hotels throughout Andalusia - from the best Paradores to 2-3 stars - and the Avalon ranks at the top of the list for a different, charming and "best-value-for-price" establishment. Don't miss it - either the hostal or the restaurant.

Room Tip: All the rooms have wonderful terraces, with great views of the coast, Nerja, the local mountains etc...

Just returned after a wonderful New Year break at Avalon. Dinner on New Year's Eve was just magical and Kevin's menu was fantastic easily matching any top rated restaurant one would care to mention! My room was comfortable and very spacious and the panoramic views from my terrace were breath-taking! The personal service provided by Alix and Kevin to their guests is first class...............'Avalon' is truly a secret waiting to be discovered!

Room Tip: All rooms are South East Facing which means wonderful views of Sunris in the morning - rooms in cent...

We really enjoyed our one night here and the comments on Tripadvisor were spot on. A good find. The views from the terrace of the sea and the mountains were lovely and we struggled to pull ourselves away. The food was excellent and the desserts were a highlight.

My girlfriend and I spent two nights at Hotel Avalon, which was amazing! The view from our terrace was spectacular. The staff were incredibly nice and fantastic. We had forgotten a picture when we left and they were kind enough to mail it back to us. Oh! and the food was so DELICIOUS!!! Thank you Alix and Kevin for the great hospitality and wonderful memories!
