My husband and I stayed for a night here recently. The location of the hotel is quite good, its a few minutes walk from the beach, public parking is nearby. The property itself if really nice.

Found this little gem while passing through Nerja on roadtrip from Mojacar area and we decided to stay overnight. Marcel the owner could not have been more helpful and gave us a pleasent room with the pool right outside our window. Centrally located in a quiet area with lovely gardens, it suited just fine. We will go back.
