I got married in nerja in September and we fell in love with this place. It is beautiful! We booked the whole place out for the venue. The tasting was amazing, rooms lovely, overall very romantic.
The wedding was very different. My wife to be got ready at the bridal suite the day of the wedding. She had campers, food as you'd expect with the bridesmaids. More of that later.
It transpired the catering is actually subcontracted. The tasting menu we had was given to another contractor. So instead of terrine of salmon we had mouse, instead of green beans wrapped in bacon we had white in a garlicky oil, instead of pepper sauce on the boar we had a type of gravy. The deserts were also changed before the wedding. All in all the meal resembled a 'menu del dia' in a bar. Speaking of which The bar did not go on all night as informed.
On returning to our bridal suite we were looking forward to the sunken bath and champers and strawberries. Turns out the room was cleaned from earlier. No champers and no strawberries.
The hotel insisted it wasn't there problem- they still say it was the hairdresser who told them not to clean the room... Does that make any sense on our wedding night. The catering not their problem again as they are just the hotel. The same for the drinks and fruit- that was the caters. Instead of apologising for the errror and offering some redress they called the cleaner down who argued its me in Spanish saying its not their fault. All admitted they would be furious if it was their wedding.
I spoke to the manager who again said essentially not my problem for it all. ABSOLUTELY shocking! I wasted so much time and energy on our honey moon with this. Luckily we forced ourselves to get over it but it nearly ruined our day. They never bothered contacting us again and we paid for everything in full. Such a shame- what is a lovely place ruined by staff and poor management. If you read the comment book and it isn't full of bad comments they have replaced it!
