We have just returned from a week all-inclusive at this hotel and we have no complaints at all. Room good and included a small kitchen area which we did not need to use but assume everything was in working order.The food was good, plenty of variety and always fresh. Drinks fine although, even on AI, there were supplements to pay on certain drinks such as premium brands and cocktails etc. We never saw any of the advertised afternoon snacks but we couldn't have eaten them anyway. Entertainment every night of the usual hotel standard to be found anywhere.About a 30 min walk to Nerja centre, via the Donkey Sanctuary. Do try and call there and support the helpers, they do a great job and need all the help they can get! One slight complaint was the fact that the spa and whirlpool were chargeable , things we have usually found to be free in other hotels. It would also have been good to have an indoor pool for the winter season. So, to sum up, no complaints about the hotel and we hope to return there some day.

Returned home a few days ago after 7 nights stay at Marinas de Nerja, Nice Aparthotel in a lovely location right on the beach,30 mins walk down the beach or 45 mins along the main road took us into Nerja which is a very nice bustling town with lots of restaurants, shops etc etc, with spectacular views out over the ocean,
We stayed B&B at the Aparthotel and ate there 2 evenings as well, Breakfast was ok, good selection but the hot food was never that hot, lukewarm more like and it was quite noisy unless you were there very early in the morning, The toasters were a complete joke, it took ages to toast the bread,,
Would we visit Nerja again ...Yes .Would we stay here again.... Possibly not because we have stayed at better 4 star accommodation and there's plenty more to choose from although this one was good value for money,

We booked a last minute holiday to this hotel and could not have been more surprised. The weather was fantastic for November and the hotel was great. We had a large aprtment with a view of the sea and also a side view of the mountains and the afternoon sun kept our balcony really warm. The atmosphere at the hotel was the friendliest I have ever known and everyone seemed to mix well. There was a mixture of Saga groups but also lots of other nationalities (mainly youngish Germans with very well-behaved children) and the hotel was really lively at the weekend when a lot of Spanish families came and added to the happy atmosphere. Staff were all friendly and helpful, the food was excellent and so was the evening entertainment. Dining in the restaurant was a fun experience as we sat next to different people at every meal (sometimes it was very crowded but this did not detract from the feelgood atmosphere) and tables were arranged almost canteen style. We were all-inclusive and found it to be a really good deal. Late afternoon from our balcony we saw the most spectacular sunsets and it was worth going for this alone. The walk along to Nerja using the beachroad was very pleasant and, even at my slow pace, it only took 25 minutes. The grounds and swimming pool area are all immaculate and we enjoyed sitting at the pool bar which was still open even though it was November. We shall definitely be joining the group of people who all seem to go back to this hotel year after year.

Room Tip: Simply ask for a room with a pool view. The hotel is almost amphitheatre in shape and all rooms ove...

We booked this holiday really last minute (booked on the Thursday arrived on the Monday) and after reading the reviews I was expecting an average cheap tacky hotel so when we arrived we were so pleasantly surprised!

I kept reading how this should be classed as a 3* but I have stayed in a 3* in italy and trust me it's a star above that hotel! If you compare a 4* to a Greek or Turkish 4* it will be different!

We went off peak and so nothing was crowded, unless you have children why would you go during peak season then complain the bar and restaurant is crowded!

The location of the hotel is perfect and on the beach, we had an apartment room and it was huge, clean and a had balcony looking over the pool. I'm fussy about room decor and thankfully there were no hideous blue carpets and yellow and orange curtains that seem typical for big hotel complexes, very neutral but not clinical, the shower is powerful even though at first glance it doesn't look like it!

Both me and my partner are in the restaurant trade and we thoroughly enjoyed the food, if you're a typical English person who just likes meat and boiled veg with a side of chips then you won't enjoy the food, it's grilled fish (no not cod sorry) salads, pastas, rice dishes, mussels, paella, breads, cold meats, cheeses, olives, chicken etc very spanish and summery and the hot food section changes every meal time, everyday

We paid a really good price for all inclusive which is probably why we're so happy about this place, I would advise to go out of peak for sure as there were no children and was quiet for a big hotel, we went in November still 28C!
If you're able bodied it's a nice walk into the town of Nerja or a €1 for the bus, we also went to the market which is on Tuesdays by bus for €2 and we walked back stopping into town and balcony europea on the way, it wasn't far at all (for 24 yearolds anyway)

We had one really nice waiter Alberto who always would give you a smile and say hello even if he was busy, the bartenders weren't always smiley but after observing them, they did do 12+ hour shifts with moany british who expect cocktails to be free* so I'm not surprised they're not always smiley and if you make the effort they warm to you, the rest of the staff were very good as well.
*the cocktails are like €4 and come in massive glasses with big measures- in England you pay £7-£12 for 50ml of alcohol in a cocktail in a tiny glass!

We spoke to a few older people who were on their 5th-7th visit! And I would definitely return again,
If you're a moaner it's probably best to stay at home!

This is my 4th time visiting Nerja and my 3rd at the Marinas de Nerja. This is a delightful hotel that's probably best visited out of season as I can imaging during the busy periods it could be slightly overcrowded.

This is certainly not a 4* hotel, probably a good 3*. The rooms definitely need updating (There was probably some updating being done while we were there) but are spotlessly clean as was the hotel as a whole.

The food was plentiful and varied and cooked to a very good standard. It's not to the same standard as you will find in 4* hotels in Greece or Turkey but we could not complain the 5 days we were there. We stayed A.I. and enjoyed every meal.

The reception staff and cleaning team were all very friendly as were the waiters and waitresses, however the bar staff could be a little hit and miss, at times you were never quite sure if they were pleased to be serving you or not. We found if you made an effort to speak with them, especially trying a little Spanish, they seemed to respond well.

I think the main thing that draws us back to this hotel is the location. The hotel sits right on the beach. The sun beds can be located around the pool area, the grass area or can be pulled up onto the sand. Any location is not to far away from your room, pool bar, reception, spa or restaurant.

Buses frequently take you the five or ten minutes journey into unmissable Nerja town. The town has to be visited day or night for its bars, restaurants, shops and Balcon De Europa.

Would we go back? Definitely! The main thing to remember is don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Request a pool view facing west as these will get the afternoon sun.
