Very nice hotel with a great view, event though we were at the farthest side of the sea, the room was facing the sea and we could ear the sound of the waves all day and all night long. The swimming pool is quite nice, there's a convenient passage to the beach so that we were able to bath in the sea and return to our sunbeds by the pool. It's close enough to Nerja's center, at a distance of a short walk there's plenty to enjoy.

Myself and my husband spent a week here. Our room was large and very spacious. It was very clean and was maintained very well by the cleaning staff. All common areas were comfortable and clean. Adhere to covid requirements was excellent. Breakfasts were varied and tasty. Sunbeds were plentiful and well maintained. However we were very disappointed in the standard of evening meal. It was very like canteen catering. We found it consistently over salted and of a much lower standard than breakfast. Very much below par. I would only return to the hotel if we could avail of a b & b option

A very nice hotel, with half board is an excellent option. Food is very good too. Evening entertainment is very good. With their pool you can either bathe there or through the gate pop over to the beach. But Car Parking is a massive headache!! Hotel only offers 25 spaces! With a high occupancy where does one park? To make matters worse the hotel offers a small map of Nerja of parking places. So you can actually drives around for close to an hour and not find anywhere. There is a central parking at the Town Hall, but this is not cheap!

Hotel very clean - evening meals lovely, drinks not expensive. Always got a sun bed. Staff lovely. Great location. Not picking points : music at the pool bar could do with being changed now and again. Breakfast was lovely but the same every day. That's it !
