Historical Traveler Reviews Marinas De Nerja Aparthotel
Acabo de volver de vacaciones del Hotel Marinas de Nerja y estoy encantada. Nuestro apartamento estaba en la planta cero con acceso directo a la piscina. Todo muy limpio y con muchas facilidades. Ibamos con un niño pequeño y todo fueron atenciones tanto para nosotros como para él.
El personal del hotel me pareció muy atento y de lo mas servicial.
La comida muy buena.Nos dejaron cambiar la media pensión de cena por comida para adaptarnos mejor a los horarios del niño.
La única pega que le pongo es que la playa tiene muchas piedras por lo que para tomar el sol allí es recomendable llevar una silla.
Lo recomiendo sin dudar.
No se le pueden poner pegas
Estuve en este hotel en enero del 2006. Está limpio y bien cuidado, las habitaciones son frescas y están bien preparadas. Todo el personal es atentísimo y muy educado. Fuimos en régimen de alojamiento y desayuno, porque no queríamos estar atados al hotel a las horas de comer, porque Nerja tiene muchos buenos restaurantes (el «Village» era nuestro favorito).
En diciembre y enero, casi todos los clientes vienen a través de Saga Tours, pero enseguida encontramos a la gente joven de Nerja, a sólo 10 minutos a pie por la playa.
Exelente en todos los aspectos
Acabamos de volver de pasar 10 días en el hotel Marinas, de Nerja, a media pensión. Las habitaciones, la comida, el personal y la limpieza general eran magníficos. La única pequeña pega sería el precio de las bebidas en el bar y el restaurante y lo que cobraban por usar el spa, aunque no empañaron unas excelentes vacaciones.
nous revenons de vacance,l'hotel super génial on y mange très bien le service exellent le personnel aussi rien a dire peut etre les animations pas terrible sinon vacances innoubliables
Take heed of critics
My husband, myself and my 3 children, ages 16,14 and 8 spent 2 weeks at this hotel. I read the reviews on this web site before leaving.. Some good and some bad. We went ahead with holiday as it was the easter 2 weeks holidays and nothing else was available. This hotel gets a 4 star rating over here because it has recently been refurbished. However. . Hotel site is excellent as . built in the foothills of the mountains, it enjoys great views of mountains on one side and the sea on the other BUT it depends which room you get. On arriving our apartment view was looking over a dumping ground , with unused cars , old sheds, and undeveloped ground. Cracks in the tiles. bird ---- on the glass balcony, spiders webs in the wall corners . We nearly died. We requested rooms with pool or sea view and were totally devastated at the thought of having to spend 2 weeks in this. My 14 year old daughter was on crutches after having surgery o her foot prior to leaving for holiday. We approached desk staff and complained , asked for a change of room, as i had promised my daughter that when she got tired she could sit on balcony and enjoy the scenary from there and not feel so isolated. Man at desk said hotel booked out and change not possible. We contacted our sunway rep in spain. And to make a long story short she did her job very well and succeeded it getting us the room we had requested. So had we stayed in first room the holiday would have been a total nightmare.
We booked b/b , as we like to dine out in the evening. Breakfast not my cup of tea. No english tea bags. Mushrooms, bacon., franfurt sausages on offer. But not like the ones at home. I settled for melon. croissants with cheese every morning.. Cannot comment on dinner meals. Pool was freezing for this time of year. We enjoyed the sunbeds on grass area, very clean and right on the beach, which is like builders sand. Entertainment guy does a work out every morning on the beach anyone can joined in. Mini club available for small children, with table tennis. which my eight year old used. NOT for teenagers, nothing for my eldest 2. They were bored and spent most days up in room on their play station which they brought with them. Entertainment poor at night. singer maybe 2 night at weekend, with a show i think on sat. This hotel really for elderly people. Nerja itself is absolutely fab. Lovely unspoilt town. Spotlessly clean. Dont miss great market every tues morning. Very cheap for shopping and eating out . VERY cheap chinese rest down near the bowls area. The BELCON square is the place to hang out in the evening . Everyone meets here. Painters with their easels doing caricatures etc . every evening till 12pm. Catholic church in the middle of square, where we enjoyed the Easter processions like I have never seen them before. Floats, flowers and bands galore. We hired a car and toured around.. Nerja from hotel a good 20 min to 30 min walk. as hotel is outside the town. Taxi 5 euro each way, but will only take four, so had we no car, it was 2 taxis in and out . So get the right room , like us , eventually, room 305 on floor 3 and you will enjoy yourself. There was no comparison between both rooms. If you smoke ,like us, Make sure you have plenty with you as they are not for sale in hotel. No smoking in hotel only on the grounds or in seating area just outside the bar. WE enjoyed our holiday and will go back to nerja but not to this hotel as it did not suit our needs with 2 teenagers and small child but excellent hotel for the older generation and anyone in a wheelchair..
Excellent in every way
We have just returned from 10 days in the Marinas de Nerja Hotel, on a half board basis. The rooms, food, staff and general cleanliness were all superb. The only slight niggle would be the cost of drinks in the bar and retaurant, and the cost of using the Spa facilities - but these did not spoil a really excellent holiday.
Couldn't Fault It
Stayed for a week in Jan 2006.Hotel is clean and well maintained, rooms are fresh and well appointed.All the staff were extremely helpful and polite.We went b&b as we did not want to be confined to hotel for all meals, as Nerja has it's own abundance of good restaurants ("The Village" was our favourite).
It is predominantly Saga tours that stay here in Dec and Jan, but we found the younger generation in Nerja only 10 mins walk along the beach.
Terrible place - dont go
A nightmare of a hotel. Staff lazy, rude and couldnt care less. The room was small and cramped, the towels dirty. I got food poisoning on the first day. Hairs in the food and general lack of enthusiasm by the staff. Horrible place. I cannot stress enough how disappointing it was and how really awful the staff were, unhelpful and just downright rude.
Excellent hotel would definitely return
Had a week all inclusive in June 2005, two adults, a 16yr old and two young daughters aged 11 and 9yrs. All of us loved it. The hotel has undergone a massive refurb over the last two years and all the reception rooms, dining area, bar and bedrooms were immaculate and air conditioned. Excellent choice on the three buffet meals and plenty for the kids as well eg pizza, pasta etc. The drinks prices were a bit steep but as we were all inclusive it didn't bother us but definetly worth considering if you're chosing between half board and A/I. Entertainment was pretty low key with an hour or so show each night and a half hour kids disco. There was a kids club between 10 am and about 1pm but it was mainly drawings, face painting etc altho it kept our young ones occupied. Pool area lovely and clean and plenty of sunbeds, beach towels are provided free as well. The hotel is right on the shingle beach - not the best beach in the world but clean nonetheless. Nerja is about 20 minutes walk but worth getting a car as the transfers from malaga can be pricey.
Our first time to Nerja and altho we had a job getting the kids away from the pool we popped into town twice and were impressed by the unspoilt Spanish feel of the place. definitely not a Benidorm but plenty of life still.
Altogether a great location and hotel with great facilities with the 2 bed apartments ideal for the larger families. We very rarely go back to the same place but would defintely consider returning here.
A heatwave with no air conditioning
I stayed in this so called hotel in august 2003, yes during the heatwave. On arriving late at night, you couldn't really see the imperfections but straight away there was a ----up with reservations. I travelled with my husband, my 5 year old, my sisters their hubbys and their two children. Only one of our families got a room, which was wrong. They booked a 2 bed room and ended up with a studio, for the duration of their stay. The other six of us were lumped together in one 1 bedroom room. Management said that was all that was available. We were too dog tired to argue at midnight. Next day it took 3 hours to get to see the hotel manager, who was somewhat reluctant to even acknowledge there had been a mistake. We were begrudgingly moved into the correct 1 bedroom room, had to unpack and pack again. The room was awful. Extremely 70ish in, well everything really. A dilapidated kitchen, with handles falling off the doors. A fridge that made rude noises. The workspace was, well minute, I just about managed to cut up a loaf of bread on the counter top. Lack of decent utensils. The bedroom was a fair size, basic but alright. The awful thing was that my son was expected to sleep in the lounge area on a put-me-up, which sagged and had springs poking out of it. We rotated the sleeping arrangements each night to accomodate. The worst thing was in 110+ heat, no air conditioning. Well I don't think I slept for a fortnight. Awful. Pool was lovely (saved the day really). Hotel staff and bar staff were rude. Served up luke warm san miguel with a miserable face. If you dared ask for something different, you ran the risk of being ignored for half an hour, while they served someone else. The saving grace of this holiday was Nerja town. 10 minutes on the bus, stops right outside (stable) I mean hotel. Lovely, extremely cosmopolitan, fantastic. Every night we ventured into town and walked along the endless cobbled back streets and browsed in shops and ate in some great restaurants. The square is buzzing and is full of artists and musicians. Would go again just to visit Nerja town. The hotel in peak season mind, had some Sasha Distell, has been singing on a Hammond organ twice a week, as its entertainment. We discovered a bar and apartment block next door called the Waikiki. Great. Small, friendly, had a kids entertainer (not too in your face Thomson rep stuff). He was different and it was on a lighter scale. Kids loved it. Don't stay at this dump there are lovely apartments, hotels in Nerja that put this place to shame. Next door at Waikiki would be a cheaper (yes we paid a ton for this holiday) bet.

Well, after the clear air and skies yesterday and during the night we have a cold morning and a cool day, that is if 8.5 C is cold, we are getting soft. This morning we marched into the local supermercardo to buy the ingredients for lunch. We were pleased and a little surprised to see a pair of oxen at work ploughing a field, the furrows were perfect but the work looks hard for the men ...
... lingo. The Spanish waiters love children and the boys have made friends with a few of them. Ethan has made a good friend in Steven (Paulaś son - who is the same age), they are so cute together, Finn is feeling the brunt of their escapades...
This week is more about catching up and relaxing than adventure although we are off to do some limbo dancing this evening...
