Hotel Puerta del Mar
Ranked #2 of 37 Hotels in Nerja
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is not the number 1 hotel in Nerja for no reason. Excellent, central location. Very good value with good sized, clean rooms with LCD TV with English speaking channels, in-room safe & a full bathroom with excellent shower pressure. There is no bar but you can get drinks via reception. There is a lovely roof terrace with a small pool. continental breakfast included. Should be rated higher than a 2 star hotel. We would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed a lovely week in beautiful Nerja and thanks to recommendations viewed in Tripadvisor, we stayed in this 14 room centrally located 2 star hotel, which is really close to cafes, restaurants and the lovely prom at Hotel Balcon. While the rooms are on the small side, they are comfortable and are made up on a daily basis, with shampoo supplies replenished. The cleaners arrived one morning just as we were about to leave and when we asked for 2 more minutes, they threw their hands in the air and indicated we needed to leave immediately if we wanted the room made up. While we understood they were on a rota, they could have asked us to leave in a more pleasant manner. The air conditioning works well, although it blows down on the bed so it did interfere a little with the night's sleep. The balcony is really tiny, just about takes 1 person. The swimming pool area is located on the top floor, is very quaint and spotlessly clean. There are adequate loungers and relaxation areas. Breakfast was excellent with a plentiful supply of bread, fruit, cheese and ham and yoghurts. They kindly facilitated us with early breakfast at 7am on two mornings when we needed to leave early to play golf. Paid car parking is located close by in the municipal car park, while free parking is located about 10 minutes away.

Room Tip: Try and get a room where the air con does not interfere with your night's sleep

Fantastic hotel very helpful staff, spotlessly clean, great breakfast, great location, I use a electric buggy and they facilitated it with no problems as such ,it would be good if in future they had a slope to the entrance of the hotel but the staff were very good at helping my husband lift it in. As a disabled guest we were given a room with a shower rather than a bath and the staff were very kind .

The Puerta del Mar is a spotlessly clean hotel with a family-run feel, in a great central location in Nerja. The reception staff are genuinely friendly and extremely helpful. The roof top terrace overlooking the town with sea-views is lovely and the pool, although not the largest I've seen, is ideal for cooling down in in the heat of the day. Parts of the hotel have a bit of a dated feel but the rooms are spacious and well air-conditioned. There are also very attractive internal courtyards within the hotel which offer a relaxing place to chill out.

Have never stayed in such a sparkling clean hotel. Decor bright and cheerful and rooftop pool lovely. Staff all helpful and friendly.
Brilliant central location.
Our room a bit dark as on the side but we were hardly in it so did not matter.
The dining room rather uninspiring for breakfast but we took our trays and sat at the table in the little first floor courtyard area which was lovely.

Room Tip: Think a room at the back would probably be lighter. Park at free parking lot on the town outskirts...

Fantastic location, everything you need is right on the doorstep- right next to the Balcon de Europa and plenty of cafes, restaurants, the beaches... The hotel is spotless and nicely decorated. Very welcoming with pleasant staff who take a lot of pride in the place. We took our two small children (3 and 5) and they absolutely loved the rooftop terrace and pool, it's small but perfect for young children as it isn't too crowded and deep like bigger hotels would be. It's clear to see why this hotel has received such glowing reviews and won awards - it's faultless!

Room Tip: Our room had a small balcony overlooking the street below, with views of the nearby square. This wa...

Excellent value. Extremely clean and functional. If this hotel had a bar and a proper restaurant it would be a 4 star hotel. I do not think you will find better in its catergory. Situated in the centre of Nerja town it is ideally placed for easy access to all the local activities. Despite it's central location the rooms were still quiet even at 11/12pm.
