The building has a splendid garden where exotic flowers bloom among the orange trees. The lush green colour of the vegetation contrasts with the blue of the swimming pool and the black and white pebbles laid in checker board fashion in the courtyards.

The sunken lounge and dining room are separated by an open sided buffet where the local painted pottery is on display.

The spacious and bright interior has a high level of comfort with elegant decor.

The Parador® restaurant specialises in the local dishes. The most requested are: "Fritura de pescaitos" where the literal translation is fried little fishes;
"Maimones" which is a typical soup of Andalusia with grapes;
"Pez espada a la naranja" which are swordfish steaks served in an orange sauce;

As well as the local dishes. the menu has international dishes and there is a special menu for those on a gluten free diet,

It was King Alfonso XII who suggested that a Parador® should be built at Nerja. He liked the area, particularly the promontory nearby which he called "Balcon de Europa", the balcony of Europe. As it was the King's wish, the Parador® was built and opened here in 1930.

A visit should also be made to the "Cuevas de Nerja" which are spectacular caves re-discovered in 1959. Inside there were many remains from the Paleolithic and Neolithic eras.

The town of Nerja is within walking distance for those who enjoy the exercise. It has narrow streets and interesting shops.

We stay for one week every year during summer and can not recommend this Hotel highly enough Location superb / Staff friendly and efficient / Spotlessly clean / We choose to eat out every night but have found the Breakfast to be excellent We shall be returning for many years to come

We enjoyed a lovely week at the Parador in Nerja. Our room had a beautiful view. Our only constructive criticism would be that the bathroom need updating as the area around the bath/shower was black with mould. This had nothing to do with the excellent cleaning staff; the bathrooms are simply old. At breakfast, the staff were very friendly but there needs to be more staff at peak times as there were often tables not cleared and breakfast was a bit chaotic. All the staff were e trembly friendly; you just need more of them! The swimming pool was a joy and the garden very peaceful. We will definitely return again as we enjoy staying in Paradors.

We stayed at this Parador for three nights to 'chill out' after a very intensive driving and walking tour of Moorish Andalucia. It was just what we wanted! The staff were friendly and helpful, the room (second floor, main wing) was spacious and had a great view. The meals in the hotel were expensive but the quality was good. We only made one comment to the catering staff, which was that the spanish omlette we ordered for lunch, came with only bread. A side salad to accompany it would have been appreciated. The old town of Nerja was interesting and the Cabes at Nerja a relevation and well worth visiting

Charming Parador hotel, the room was lovely with good size balcony overlooking the sea and the beach. Very good idea with the lift from the hotel to the beach. we hope to return many more times Nerja itself is very nice. I would recommend both the hotel and the town of Nerja to anyone who asks.

Parador® hotel of Nerja is above the Mediterranean beach of this town in Andalucia.
