Hotel Puerta del Mar
Ranked #2 of 37 Hotels in Nerja
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is a lovely little hotel. It's in a convenient location, right in the centre of the old town. It's peaceful, despite its central location. The rooms are clean, and are cleaned daily (even on a Sunday). The man on Reception was extremely helpful and friendly. There's plenty of choice at breakfast time. Our room didn't have a balcony, but there's a central courtyard area guests can use. The rooftop pool is a good size for a fairly small hotel, and there are plenty of umbrellas and sunbeds. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in a fantastic hotel in a central location in this lovely resort.

My husband and I have just come back from a weeks holiday, after staying at this perfect small hotel. This was our first visit to Nerja and what a fantastic impression the hotel and area has left on us. Obviously you don't know what to expect, when you haven't been before, but we always look on Trip Advisor to get a better idea before we book. The hotel is the cleanest one I have ever been in and we have been to quite a few over the years. It is a pleasure to come into. We found the staff extremely helpful and polite and nothing was too much trouble for them. The location is in a quieter side road, near the main square, where the atmosphere and variety of restaurants and shops is really varied. The rooftop pool is a little gem and the continental breakfast was excellent. For us, it was a perfect holiday and rest. We would definitely like to come again, Thank you, Puerta del Mar.

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.
