Nerja Reviews

Holiday Date:4th Sep 2017
Accommodation:Perla Marina Hotel
Room:Double Or Twin
Board:Bed & Breakfast
(5 suns)

We found the hotel very convenient for the resort centre for all needs. The beaches are ok. The beach opposite the hotel is being washed away by the sea and further along is quite stoney. The main beach is the better one with fine gritty sand. We enjoyed lots of lovely meals in the many and varied restaurants and bars which we found to be good value. It was very enjoyable to soak up the atmosphere in the evenings especially around the old town area with lots of shopping.

The resort has water activities available, lots of bars and restaurants available. Beach can get over-crowded.

Beaches

Boasting 16 km of stunning beaches, Nerja has no shortage for those looking for the perfect spot to soak up the sunshine. The main and most popular beach is Playa Burriana, it has good facilities on hand such as sun loungers for hire, play area for children, showers and water-sports including pedalos, banana boats, para-sailing and jet skis. The promenade behind the beach is lined with cafes and restaurants convenient for snacks and refreshments.

Things to do

A great way to see the town and local area is by jeep or buggy safari, both are excellent ways to see the countryside and are great fun for all ages. The tourist train is also a good way to see the town and is hugely popular with children.

Twice a week the town holds a market, visitors are sure to pick up a bargain from the array of stalls offering an assortment of goods. The history museum and donkey sanctuary are also well worth a visit and are a great way to spend an afternoon.

Out and about

The resort has an extensive range of restaurants offering everything from traditional Spanish specialties to international cuisines, catering for all budgets and tastes. Most restaurants are 'family friendly' and offer special menus for children.

Nerja has a vibrant nightlife with an array of bars and nightclubs open until the early hours. Plaza Tutti Frutti is the main hub of activity with a good selection of bars open til late and some offering entertainment or live music.

Nearby places of interest

Definitely on the the 'to do' list when in Nerja should be the Nerja Caves. The magnificent caves are one of Spain's most spectacular historical sites. The huge chambers contain wall paintings believed to be 20,000 years old and stunning natural rock formations.
