... had a much harder life, he whipped a pocket knife out of his pocket and cut us up samples of lemons, grapefruit, oranges, cumquats! Delicious! On the way out I thanked him and he promptly asked " are you non your own." "Would you like to stay?" Best offer I've had in a while ! We are invited to cocktails with the Captain tonight so better go get frocked up! At sea tomorrow then Rome then we are nearly on our way home ...
... br> I mentioned I packed quickly to get my luggage set out on purpose as an excuse for inadvertently leaving my iPad and Kindle on board! I left them sitting right next to the TV. Luckily, the cruise line has them in Lost and Found and once the ship is back in port in Barcelona, they'll be shipped to me. I guess I really am lucky! Who needs that extra $3K. You can't take it with you! ...
... br> We stayed on the bus past the circles with beautiful fountains and statues, old forts and mansions, shiny new marble buildings, and numerous parks with trees and shrubbery of all species and textures. This was my favorite city so far on the cruise. We walked back through the parks after shopping, and of course coffee!
I think I'm finally getting better at ordering coffee.
On our walk back to catch our tour ...
... in Andalusia are Moorish impressions from the seven centuries
of the Muslim rule here. The Moors came from the North African country of Morocco and crossed the Strait of Gibraltar to get into the Iberian Peninsula and followed later by the Christian Reconquista. Hence across the area you’ll see the Mosques modified into churches. ...
We can clearly see what we have been told when in the hills that this is a very dry period for Andalucia with no significant rain for a long time. Even on the walk to the watch tower where we usually find fresh and healthy herbs the ground is dry and the plants are dying. After a windy and dusty day yesterday the weather has returned to a warm and gentle breeze and a temperature of 25C.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Carabeo & Restaurant 34 Nerja
We loved the hotel - the room was wonderful with a large terrace and sea views plus a lovely swimming pool in the gardens. Staff were very helpful and friendly, the food in the restaurant was excellent. All in all we had a relaxing holiday here and other guests we spoke to had all been before - what more can you say?
Great Hotel and Fab Food
We stayed at this hotel for only one night as we touring around Andalucia. This place is lovely - like a small country house hotel when you walk in and the view from the terrace bar is fantastic. We dined here with friends and the food was truly great; good atmosphere and the waiting staff were the friendliest we'd experienced in an area that can suffer from indifferent service.
The only downside is that we found Nerja very disappointing - featurless and over-developed.
My husband and I loved the Hotel Carabeo. Upon arrival in Nerja, we couldn't hide our disappointment at the crowds of tourists that had taken over an otherwise quaint town. Luckily, the Hotel Carabeo turned out to be an oasis! The staff is pleasant and very professional, our room (with a lovely terrace overlooking the sea) was excellent and breakfast in the restaurant was a great way to start the day.
My husband and I stayed at Hotel Carabeo for our honeymoon in October 2005. It was our first stop in Spain and we were amazed at how exquisite everything was. The pictures on their website do not do it justice. It's a beautiful quaint hotel with sea room views and luxurious decor. I am well traveled and my expectations are high. Hotel Carabeo did not disappoint. If you're looking for a romantic place to stay in luxury, this is the place. The only negative thing I can say is that the restaurant, "34" in the hotel was sub par. The menu looks delightful but the quality of the food did not satisfy our taste for a fine meal. In addition, the wait staff was unpleasant.
On a gloomy and rainy day like today, our minds travelled back to Hotel Carabeo in Nerja.
What a stunning hotel. We had saved 2 nights here for the end of our stay in Andalucia. The room was stunning as was the rest of the hotel but the staff were snooty and unwelcoming. The bar and restaurant were closed on our first night, there was no warning of this at booking.
Lovely boutique hotel
We have just spent 2 weeks in the Hotel Carabeo. It is a lovely friendly, well run hotel with a super restaurant. Our room had a lounge and a terrace which looked out to the sea and mountains and the view would be hard to beat.
Only fault was breakfast. It was bought to you on a plate and it was the same thing every morning for 2 weeks. There is alternatives but they come at an extra cost and as this isnt a cheap hotel anyway, we didnt think we should pay for extras.
The staff are very helpful and will do anything they can for you.
All in all a super holiday.
The Hotel Carabeo is a charming little inn located on one of Nerja's winding narrow streets. The garden and some rooms have excellent views out over the sea and curving coastline. It is beautifully and tastefully furnished throughout with antiques, and the bedroom we stayed in, although small, was well appointed and came with luxury toiletries and robes. Our room overlooked the street and as the previous reviewer commented, it was a little noisy so you may want to consider an seaview room or one in the annexe. We took this one because of the great price.
For the last 3 days of our Andalusian tour we needed a place to chill out away from the frenetic city life we had just enjoyed in Malaga, Granada. Seville & Cordoba. Hotel Carabeo is fairly new and is a cool oasis in the plastic, mass commercialsim that one usually experiences on the Costas. The whole can described as chic and of the highest quality - it was a pleasure just to be in the hotel. They have excellent rooms with a/c and very artistic fittings and features combining a mixture of opulence and style. The gem is a small garden with a pool and at the end, a terrace overlooking the Med - ideal for sunbathing or that late night cognac in the moonlight. Their own restuarant looked 4-star and was fairly booked up most nights. Our room (Torrecilla) had a basic lack of secondary glazing (which the rooms in the new annex have) - this gave noisy nights and early wake-ups - something I hope they will remedy. Maybe the price reflects this at €85 - the top rooms come in at near €200 with tax but have sea-views and a terrace. The breakfasts were splendid and as a sign of being English owned, came with large pots of tea or coffee along with fresh fruit, pastries, cereals, cheeses & meats. A small but outstanding hotel.
