Bottom Line

The 216-unit Marinas de Nerja Aparthotel is right on the beach, across a beautiful lawn dotted with cabanas and sun beds. The hotel is geared to tourists, especially families with kids, and offers an all inclusive option that attracts Spaniards on long weekends or school holidays. Located a 20-minute walk from central Nerja, this hotel has a big pool with lounge chairs and sea views along with an indoor pool and hot tubs. All rooms have convenient kitchens -- including kettles, mini-fridges, and a small cooktop -- and balconies.

Beachfront apartment-style hotel

The Marinas de Nerja Aparthotel is an oceanfront hotel popular with families. The lobby is bright and clean with tall windows over an attractive seating area of blue couches. This hotel is geared towards fun and relaxation; in the evening there is entertainment for adults and kids including a weekly themed dinner in the hotel's restaurant, dancing, and musical acts. The beach club restaurant offers another spot for relaxing in the Spanish sun.


Beachfront hotel, 20-minute walk from the town center

The Marinas de Nerja Aparthotel is located a 20-minute walk along the beach to the tourist center of Nerja (a bus also connects guests there in about five minutes). There are shops, bars, and restaurants within a five-minute walk from the hotel, for those who don't take the all-inclusive option. Visitors who are into cultural tourism and sightseeing may not be happy with the distance from town, but travelers looking for a relaxing holiday will find they have the best of both worlds.


Studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments with balconies

Rooms at the Marinas de Nerja Aparthotel are either studio, one- or two-bedroom apartments with kitchenettes and balconies (ground floor apartments don't have private outdoor space). Rooms are spotlessly clean, and, unlike many apartment hotels, housekeeping comes daily. Decor matches the whitewashed Mediterranean look of the hotel's exterior, with touches of red and coral; the design is simple, bright, and cheery. Kitchenettes have microwaves, coffeemakers, cooktops, and dinnerware. Rooms have flat-screen TVs and laptop-sized safes. The studio apartments have small tubs, not big enough for comfortable soaking, and rooms overlooking the pool can be noisy.


Great pool, kids activities, fitness center, and spa

The pool at the Marinas de Nerja Aparthotel is not only large, but deeper than most hotel pools; there is a children's pool as well. The spa includes whirlpool, sauna, and massage therapy. The Albatros Restaurant offers traditional Spanish food and a weekly themed dinner in a bright, airy buffet dining room. The indoor/outdoor Andalucia Bar is furnished with comfortable armchairs, where guests can relax for hours, although some complain about long waits for service. Bike rental, tennis, ping pong, scuba diving, a fitness center, kids' club, live music, and kids' disco are some of the hotel's resort-style activities.
