We have stayed here several times and what makes us return is the relaxing beachside location and the fantastic staff who are the same year after year. Nothing is too much trouble for them and that is quite unusual in hotels these days it seems ! They meet every request with a 'of course' and they are so kind and genuinely friendly. I would say the rooms are a little 'tired' and need updating, but they are quiet,with plenty of storage space, and it is lovely to fall asleep to the sound of the waves-we always leave the window open !
Breakfasts are great- plentiful and varied with loads of fresh fruit. Shame the coffee is not so good ( in a country where the coffee is usually fantastic wherever you go) and the juice is rather watery, and not freshly squeezed, something one might expect in a 4 star establishment. Dinners can be a little disappointing and monotonous. Some nights, when there is a carvery or Andalucian theme, they are fine.... Other nights one is left craving more flavour and variety. I'm not sure all the vegetables are fresh, and the salads are a bit predictable.
The gardens of the hotel are lovely. We tend not to sit in the hotel lounge- the entertainment is noisy, and the drinks expensive. However, Nerja is full of charming bars and cafes to spend the evening in, and it's a lovely town simply to enjoy strolling round. Recommendations : Cafe Anahi, Restaurant Pepe Rico, Miralmar cafe, cafe Jamaica, to name just a few !
