The parador in Nerja is a lovely modern building overlooking the blue Mediterranean sea from the top of a dramatic cliff, similar to Aiguablava Parador on the Costa Brava.
Spacious rooms with big balconies overlooking the pool or the sea, this parador is a firm favourite with northern-european holidaymakers all year round. We went in early March and it was full. Nerja is a small town, still relatively unspoilt compared to other areas of Costa del Sol because the thriving tourist industry somehow manages to blend into the town and coast. The parador is very well sign-posted and easy to find.
Guests at Nerja Parador have direct access down to Nerja Beach via a cliff lift at the bottom of the parador garden. The beach is lovely and we recommend a walk at sunrise or sunset. Fishing boats lie on the sand during the day, and indeed the seafood is especially good in this area of the Costa del Sol. Try the local prawns (served in the parador restaurant) - they are delicious.
The parador restaurant is very good and, as a result, very popular, so make sure you get down quite early for dinner as it fills up very quickly and you may have to wait for a table. Service is friendly and professional, and the food is excellent. If you do have to wait, you can do so in the adjoining piano bar which is very pleasant.
The lovely swimming pool, pleasant open spaces (when we went there was an interesting art exhibition with works from a local artist), comfy rooms, very good breakfasts and pleasant staff make this one of the paradors highly recommended by Euroresidentes. See Photos of Nerja Parador
