This is a 3 star hotel and therefore you get what you pay for. My partner and I stayed for 1 week and paid just over £600 - that's £600 for one week half board from London that also included transfers. We travelled with Thomson.
Quiet hotel, very traditional
Food was excellent (we have stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels and food was not any better)
Room was clean but in need of an update (rm 331)
TV had all English channels - but was not a flat screen
Wi-Fi worked well
Staff were efficient although they could smile a bit more
Not many children (we left ours at home) catered for adults
Fridge 3 Euros per day to hire - good value
Safe 18 Euros per week
Happy Hour - 1800-1900
Air conditioning not very strong and very noisy
Room was tired looking and in need on an upgrade
Lots of hills - so if you are not very mobile then it would be difficult
No noise from building site (new supermarket) although there was drilling and banging from the other side of the hotel - sounded like a enthusiastic DIY 'er.
9.10 Euros for a large beer and rum and coke - expensive compared to London!
Thomson - outgoing flight from Luton very good although drinks and snacks on board were expensive. Transfers to resort was fast and efficient and we were the the second drop off - takes about an hour from Malaga to Nerja. Check in also very good. We had a brand new Thomson coach that was was impressive.
Return journey was a bit of a nightmare. Coach was small with a luggage container at rear - was on time and everything going well. Then the driver received a call on his mobile about 15 minutes from the airport - he did not stop of course and continued driving down the motorway whilst having a highly charged conversation in Spanish. We then saw the airport and duly went straight past it - no announcement - nothing. We then headed towards Torremolinos and stopped at another hotel were we saw about 12 other people who apparently had been waiting for over a hour. Most of these people were quite elderly. After about 15 minutes 8 people, got on our little coach (there were no more seats) and 4 others were sent in a taxi. We then headed towards the airport - still no announcements - nothing. We arrived at the airport one and a half hours before take off. Found the Thomson queue and as we waited a Thomson rep matched up and down the queue telling people to hold out their passports and ensure that the photo page was showing - she was actually quite aggressive and rude. We got the front where we checked in - the Spanish check in lady was fast and efficient - out of nowhere the Thomson rep appeared again (I would describe her as auburn in a pony tail, size 16, Northern accent) she then ensured that we weighed out cases at least twice - she paid particularly attention to hand luggage - be warned! We were well under our allowance of 15kg and 5 kg hand luggage. This appeared no more then yet another money making scam from Thomson. She was truly awful and did not add any value to the process.
We have flown with Thomson twice this year and on every occasion the return journey from the resort to the airport has been a nightmare - Mexico, Lanzarote and now Nerja. They really do need to sort this mess out - it appears they do everything to get you to the resort and then don't care on your inbound journey. Thomson rep in resort was good and visible if you required her.
In conclusion, the hotel was good value for money and the food was excellent - this was a £600 holiday and 3 star so cannot expect anymore. Would we return - yes - but not sure if we would use Thomson again.
