Won't be returning...
The Nerja Club Hotel is in need of refurbishment. We arrived here on an allocation on arrival basis and couldn't believe that it had been credited with 3 stars. The beds were too short for my almost 6ft body, the drawers didn't open, the bathroom door panel was "flared" where it was coming away at the bottom, our balcony was "big" enough for the two of us to face each other with our knees touching... I felt like I was in the Sin Bin, although we did have a view of the roadworks. We felt sorry for the ones below ground level who could only see brambles and a wall. The breakfast menu was virtually the same every day with constant queues for the tea, coffee and taseless drinks machines (one of each). There were two toast carousels but these were pretty quick as the bread was rarely fresh. Also there was no microwave to warm up the cold beans. The nightly entertainment was average with a couple of decent acts but the resident singer was very ordinary. All the members of staff were excellent. We enjoyed the area itself even though there seemed to be roadworks everywhere and the Spanish Tapas and bars were very friendly with the drinks exceptionally cheap. Towards the end of the holiday we chatted to various people we had met and most agreed with the above although some said they liked it's friendly nature, which it did have.
Great friendly hotel
I stayed at the Nerja Club Hotel in October 2005, for the seventh time and once again was very pleased with the standard of service, cleanliness etc of this hotel. The restaurant caters for all tastes, a vegtarian option is available on request, although it is a not a burger, beans and chips type of restaurant. The rooms are clean. There is entertainment every night, not always to everybody's taste, but the flamenco dancers are very good.
Not recommended. Read before you go
I wish I had read the reviews before I went to this hotel. I went on Thompson price breaker with the choice of three hotels and ended up here.
Although the common areas of the hotel are very nice there were lots of problems we discovered:-
The rooms were very poor and needed desperate refurbishment. We got put in one of the 'best' rooms with a balcony over looking the back road. Which we thought was great, away from the main road and all the road works. That night we discovered what it is really like.
Our room was beneath the terrace and every night there is live entertainment til gone midnight. A terrible singer was on for three nights in a row (4 nights overall). Our room was literally shacking from the speakers. Having been up since 2am we wanted an early night..no chance of that. It wouldn't be so bad if you could escape to another part of the hotel for some quite, but every where was pounding. You could hear it all around the complex. I don't know how the locals put up with it.
The next day we moved rooms. We ended up in a dingy room with no balcony and a small window at the front of the hotel to try and get away from some of the noise. It did help a bit, but as the receptionist said 90% of the hotel can here the nightly entertainment. Most people complained and said there was not much point having a balcony as it was too nosiy to sit outside.
The wardobe and drawers in our room smelt so musty we could not put our clothes in them and we had to resort to buying air freshers. No tea or coffee facilities. This is only available at breakfast and no other time of the day.
Several evening we escaped to the near by nelwy built Los Arcos hotel for some quiet. It was lovely there!
I would recommend a self catering apartment in the centre of Nerja or a hotel in the centre on B&B basis as there are so many lovely restaurants to choose from. It was such a long walk to the town and beach. Not too badin cool weather but terrible in the heat. Bus services were poor.
The food was very poor with limited choice (nothing for the vegtarians and only ice cream for dessert). Several evenings we went to eat out. This is definitly not a three star hotel as some brochures suggest.
Seriously think twice about this hotel.
Read before you book
Nerja Club Hotel...................read this before you book.
A clean hotel with friendly staff however the rooms are very basic (without a minibar, kettle or basic tolietries). The evening entertainment is dire and goes onto 12pm every night..............so there is very little chance for an early night.
One evening I called reception to borrow an iron and was informed the hotel did not have a spare one, but the laundry service could provide the required service for a fee.
We stayed for eight nights and at no time was our bed sheet changed until we asked. The pillow is one long pillow the stretches the width of the bed.
In all the hotel is okay but lacks substance. I would recommend a villa or an apartment if your living in nerja. The above hotel is a 15 minute downhill walk to the beach (and 20 - 25 minutes uphill on the return).
The Nerja Club Hotel
I have just come back from a week's holiday in the Nerja Club Hotel. The hotel itself is very clean and the staff are pleasant and helpful. However, the food is limited in choice and there wasn't a vegetarian option available, although the holiday rep. suggested I speak to the Chef to see if he could provide a stuffed pepper. Breakfast is also limited in choice with sausages and bacon appearing on alternate days. The restaurant is also looking a bit dated and could do with revamping. However, apart from the food the hotel and pool area is very pleasant. The room we had was okay with air conditioning, telephone and television with limited UK programmes, but roadworks were being undertaken outside our room and this activity woke us up at 8 a.m. each day. The food would have to improve before I would return to this hotel.
We stayed here about five years ago,it was fabulous. We met some brilliant people from Merseyside and we've never laughed so much. There was entertainment every night and we had a wonderful room overlooking the pool. Our friends had a room at the back with a patio so we were both lucky. Some rooms I did notice didnt have much of a balcony, so ask for a room overlooking the pool, or a ground floor room at the back.
We went back last year, this time staying in a villa close by but we called in for a drink, it was just the same and just as friendly and clean. The decor is beautiful and the staff are very helpful and friendly. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.
Friendly hotel, fabulous views, spotless
This was my third visit to the Nerja Club Hotel, I have always found it to be an exceptionally friendly little hotel. The views from the rooms are stunning, mountains and the Med. The famous Nerja caves are within walking distance (depending on fitness levels) and also the town is not too far away. The hotel is always spotlessly clean and airy. Personally I love the food, there is always plenty of salad dishes and fresh fruit.
We visited this hotel in January for 2 weeks. It was spotlessly clean, rooms pleasant enough, staff very nice, but as for the food- completely and utterly disgusting! Our supposedly cheap last minute deal ended up costing us a fortune because we had to eat out all the time. However, we really liked the town of Nerja, although if you go in January, a lot of places are closed until Spring. One more thing- we found the bar prices in the hotel to be a bit steep- a 5 minute walk will take you to several bars & restaurants where you will pay more reasonable prices.
The hotel Nerja Club is set about fifteen minutes out of the town centre. It is a small and very welcoming place and many friends meet up there, year after year. The hotel is always spotlessly clean and has excellent bar, lounge and conservatory areas. There is a sun terrace with a small pool and stunning views of the sea, as well as a mountain backdrop. The food in the dining room is much improved and the snack bar provides light lunches every day. I have visited the hotel over many years and have always been very happy with it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the area, who does not mind a walk into town or to the beaches.
Lovely clean hotel
i had a very nice holiday at this hotel. the rooms were comfortable and kept very clean. the hotel was clean in general. i was a bit worried about the food as there had been a lot of mixed reports, but i found the food very nice with alot of choice. the resort is also lovely. i would say that this is more towards 4* than 3*. i will definately go back.

... on Friday morning something great happened. Apparently our bathroom had a leak in the floor which had caused the ceiling of some holiday makers below to collapse! Fortunately for them they were not in bed as if they had been they would have had a ceiling on their head! Long story short is that we managed to get the landlord if our new place to let us move in on Friday! We've spent the last few days sorting out the basics such as bank account, phone, keys cut blah blah blah and in ...
... near the Balcon de Europa where prices are for tourists!! The drive to the lake the other day was OK, La Venuela and we enjoyed the views and the faint splash of snow on the summits at over 5000 ft, it is only just possible to detect that on the photograph. When it rains here on the sea edge and with night time temperatures of between 7 & 8 C then we have snow at 5000 ft. It does not stay long this close ...
... which I believe might be temporary). The two main reasons for this exhibit to claim the title of my 'personal favorite' are my love for psychology (I am currently taking Brain and Behavior) and the cool jellyfish tank that was in the front. Those are solid reasons, right? Anyway, all of the exhibit photos are included.
The other photos are from a day at Almunecar beach and a night out with some girlfriends.
Yesterday night was the last time I got to see ...
... about an hour of being lost, we found each other! Meeting up at a great bar
called Babel: World Fusion. Each of us with two friends sat down at this cozy
bar to enjoy some tapas and drinks. In Granada, most of the bars serve free
tapas with every beverage ordered. We ended up getting ordering a large plate
of Mediterranean food with chicken wraps, falafel, and humus; it was a great
choice. We stayed there catching up and getting to know all of the roommates
and friends ...
Hola, well youĺl be pleased to know that the sun disappeared for 1/2 a day...it was still there but behind some cloud that actually made it hotter!
