Imogen and I had also purchased a football (soccer) guernsey for the Barcelona team which we noted along the trip that he wanted. To source the correct size we had told him in Barcelona that I would be buying one for my brother who was a similar size to him ;).
All packed up i was feeling a mix of excitement and nostalgia, it would be strange to travel on without Ruben and Mette who I had been with for 3.5 weeks.
From Valencia I took a train to Malaga, on the south coast of Spain. There I met up with a mate from school, Elliott, and a few of his mates – Danesh, Danny and Gabriel. We had rented an apartment for the week for feria – Malaga's annual festival. Malaga is quite nice, but the festival itself is a joke. There is no main event/ceremony unifying the celebrations.

... I feel like I'm learning a lot, and learning easier ways to use Spanish grammar. My profesoras are awesome--the first one is a young hippy communist who knows everything about politics and history in Spain, and has amazings stories about the protests and stuff she's taken part in. The second one doesn't share much about her personal life, but she is a riot. She makes fun of the boys in the class, she always makes us laugh, and she has ...
... nearby set high on a hill in the grounds of a castle. Some years ago, they moved the inhabitants out and built them a new village some 8 km down hill. The original village now offers sympathetic rustic holiday accommodation within the walls of the castle and artisanal studios sell paintings and pottery. It's pleasant walking around the village, exploring. We overnight in the shadow of the castle and watch the eagles soaring overhead. Unsurprisingly, it ...

It is magnificent in its beigeness, but for me, totally lacking in spirit. I don't understand quite why I am not getting it, but there it is. It isn't helped by the lack of signage explaining what the various areas were used for, or even who used them. I suppose we should have paid a further €5 for the commentary phone. As I stand looking out ...

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.
