“Imaginative food beautifully presented”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

It was a real pleasure to eat wonderful food in such a beautiful setting on the terrace overlooking the bay towards Nerja with the mountains beyond. The food was fabulous and a real treat to escape from the usual Spanish fare served in many other local restaurants. A really romantic, idyllic setting which I would thoroughly recommend to anyone going to Nerja - definitely not to be missed. The wine was excellent also, and not overpriced. Thanks to Kevin and Alix and their wonderful staff - you deserve every success.

“Enjoyable stay in the hotel, very good food.”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

We spent 9 nights in the Avalon recently. It is a traditional Andalucian style hotel with nicely furnished rooms and loads of character. There are only 6 rooms,but they are excellently furnished and kept very clean. The whole place has a lovely feel - from the views over the bay and mountains to the bustling and thriving terrace restaurant. The food is several notches up from the usual fare served locally. The Flamenco night on Fridays is very enjoyable. The hotel has a friendly atmosphere and is well-run. It is clearly a popular place, and it deserves to be. Well done to Kevin and Alix.

“Just go there. And make sure you book!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

The steak was the best I've ever had. Twice cooked - once very slowly to cook it incredibly tenderly and once to give it a fabulous exterior flavour. The wine was also brilliant, and my wife had one the best birthday meals ever. They even made her a special chocolate piece of art for the occasion. Stunning view from the terrace (best in Nerja) and great memories.
