We checked in for 3 nights from 30th Nov 13 and chose an apartment instead of the hotel complex, it was not value for money being less than clean and cold at night with no heating installed, the apartments are very dated and in need of an update ie: rusty fridge , poor showers. Wi Fi works sometimes. Great location on the beachfront and nice surroundings with fabulous views. Hotel staff very helpfull and did attend to concerns raised,

This is not the best hotel in Europe , but for the price we have payed it was moooooore than OK . Nice room and clean , Service at the desk , restaurant and bar next to the swimming pool very friendly and helpful . Few meters from the sea - nice views , 3 or 4 stars - who cares , expectations of modern 4 stars hotel for this money is not real - maybe with last minute trips . We had trips to Granada , Sewilla , Malaga and Marbella by car , beautiful locations . No night live around the hotel, but thats what we hoped for . 15 minutes walk to the city center

Room Tip: A sea view is the must

Had a relaxing stay at this hotel. Room was as expected with a nice sea view. Staff were helpful. What might be an idea is for a welcome folder explaining hotel facilities. Breakfast was ok although it did feel a bit like being at school dinners! The location of the hotel was great - right on the beach with some nice walks along the shore. There was a good selection of bars and restaurants nearby and the centre of town was an easy 10 minute walk.

Stayed at the Perla Marina from 8th to 15th October. I am baffled by some of the negative reviews. I enjoyed the stay very much. The hotel is divided in two with the old part linking the new part through a marble underground tunnel. My sea facing room was located on the fourth floor. The room was very comfortable and clean. The large restaurant (seats approx 250) served breakfast & buffet food for dinner. The quality was fine and the food was nice and hot. Plenty to choose from. The thing I liked most about the hotel was the bar / snack bar which was located at the water's edge. I will go back...

Just returned from a weeks holiday at the Perla Marina, my wife and I found that the hotel was in no way a 4 star hotel, we have stayed in far better 3 star hotels. The overall impression was one of cost cutting with poor standards of decoration and maintenance, we had a leaking toilet which an attempt was made to fix (unsuccessfuly) with large amounts of silicon mastic. All uplighters with provision for 2 lamps only had 1.
Cleaning was poor with a dirty fridge and the corridor outside the room was not cleaned or vacuumed all the time we were there.Food was not great, the last time I sat barrack room style in a dining room was in Butlins in the 1960's so not inviting,
The hotel was once good it needs serious upgrading.

Room Tip: Get a corner sea view on the building closest to the beach (there are two hotel blocks one each side...

Just back from a week at Perla Marina,at best this is a 3* hotel,in fact we have stayed in far better 3*hotels than this.
Breakfast restaurant was laid out in long rows of tables,no tables for 2 or 4,so all very stark and uninviting,queues for watered down juice and hot drinks,limited cereal and fruit selection.
We had good sea view from our room but,on close inspection broken tiles on floor,wardrobe doors wouldnt slide due to dirt and hair trapped in the rail,refridgerator in poor state of repair and cleanliness!
The pool is itself is lovely,unfortunately alot of broken dirty tiles around it,the place needs a good clean and a complete overhaul as in 28degrees of heat it could be a breeding ground for germs!!

Room Tip: possibly over road from reception.

Excellent setting on the edge of Nerja - 5/10 walk from the centre but there are supermarkets round the corner. Hotel is clean and comfortable on 2 sites linked by a tunnel. There are 2 small swimming pools, one of which is on the roof, but from the terrace you walk directly on to the promenade and beach. The restaurant provides buffet dinner and breakfast - food is good and there is reasonable choice. Would definately visit again
