Right on the beach, with a small play area for kids Apartments are basic but comfortable and clean and you get what you pay for. We never cook on holiday just... More

Worst service of any complex we've ever stayed in. Apartment was not cleaned once or bedsheets changed in the entire two weeks we stayed there. Only ever saw someone in reception once. There was a contact number on the door that wasn't answered on the couple of occasions I rang it, once when there was a dreadful smell in the... More

We had two apartments, they were both large, clean and tidy with balconies looking toward the sea. Yes they are a bit dated but if you want 4 star luxury then pay the price and stay in the Hilton next door. The pool area was fantastic, spotless and well maintained, no sunbeds which was great as none of the usual... More

We stayed for my sisters wedding which was being held next door at the 4* Hotel. I was a bit worried after reading some reviews & accommodation was so cheap. However when we arrived I was delighted, the appartments are very spacious, the place was spotless & location was literally right on the beach. Ok we found it hard to... More

Reception only open 3-4 hours a day. Apartment complex is outside (20 minutes walk) from Nerja centre. Area is not really nice. Apartment complex is old, run-down, not maintained, very smelly, dirty (because of mold in bathroom). Bedroom is tiny, dark and dirty. Not a place you wanna sleep. We had to rearrange our sleeping situation in the kitchen. Not... More

Located on the beach but still has a pool. The pool has railings around it and is accessed by gates which I felt was perfect as we have two two year olds and it meant they could not get to the pool without us.

I stayed at the Rio Marinas Apartments - not to be confused with the big 'Marinas De Nerja' hotel next door. It was small but comfortable, the staff were on hand to help out, cleaner came in 3 times in a week. I've stayed in much worse places - this was cheap and cheerful, with no major problems. Nice decor,... More
