“Jimesol Hotel”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Centrally located hotel in nice area. Varied and tasty menu. Helpful staff, particularly Carmen on reception who booked trips and taxis and gave us a good insight into the area. Rooms clean and the couple of issues we had with the shower were dealt with quickly and efficiently. On the downside, avoid room 304 as our view was of a brick wall about 8 feet away from the window and we felt this should have been disclosed prior to booking as we had requested a balcony.
The pool is only about 12 feet long so don't expect much of a swim here.
Overall, very good value for money and we had a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: Enquire about the view via email prior to booking to ensure you are not facing the brick wall.

Just returned from Nerja, and this hotel was great for exploring the town. The rooms are a good size, clean and comfortable, and breakfast was great, with a Full English option (so unusual for Spanish hotels) as well as fresh fruit, cold meats, cheese etc.
The hotel's not in a very pretty part of town, but only a few minutes to the main square, which is very picturesque. The only problem was the noise from the street below, If you go here, request a room at the back.

Room Tip: See earlier comment.

Went here for a week with my partner for her birthday.
Room was okay although no tea and coffee facilities, once over that paid 20 Euros for a remote control(refundable).

Room was cleaned daily with new towels and beds changed once within that week.
Breakfast was hit and miss really...good variety with the "continental" side but as far a having a cooked breakfast you will be disappointed.

Pool terrace was surprisingly large but dated and tired looking.

We regrettably stayed while a group of 30 plus group of revellers stayed for a wedding and their behaviour and language was really unacceptable, but thats the chance you take!

The restaurant and reception staff were extremely miserable and there was certainly no rapport and no attempt at "polite" conversation

The hotel however was central and I would certainly visit this truly lovely traditional town again

Lets start with the premise that this is a cheap hotel, but its shortcomings are manifold. We paid extra for a better room with a mountain view 307 but most of the others are grim/noisy i.e. 3 yard view / street overlooking disco. We were half board, but dinner on the first night apart from the soup was stone cold. Slightly worse on the second night, so we baled out after that and ate in the fantastic bars and restaurants in town. The hotel is mainly populated by small Spanish OAP,s who spend the entire time shouting at each other, from 0500 - 2400 hearing aids must be at a premium in Spain . Breakfast was on the Faulty Towers scale, the orange juice was powdered, the halogen toaster only dried bread to the consistancy of cardboard,raw bacon,cold baked beans,congealed egg, I could go on ad nauseum. Apart from the cleaners, the staff were aloof to the point of rudeness.Suffice it to say we would not go back to the Jimesol, but definately back to Nerja.

Room Tip: Mountain views a must.
