This apartment is in a great location, very central, just 5 minutes stroll to the European Balcony and 5 minutes gentle downwards slope to the beach.
Its in block of about 4 that share the guitar shaped pool. The pool is very nice, there aren't any sun loungers, just some white plastic chairs so people lay on the grass or bring their own. The apartment had one lay back chair. You need to use an access key to get in the pool area and there was a guard on most days. It wasn't too crowded during June when we went.
Up the road is a very nice bakery that was good for breakfast. There are bars very close, small supermarkets, a chemist, everything you might need really.
The apartment itself was on the third floor and was very cosy, nicely laid out and had all utensils in case you want to cook, washing machine. There are two lifts and the view from the rooftop was amazing.
The air conditioning was a big stand alone unit in the front room with a pipe out the window which had to be left open, then two fans in the bedrooms, so not a fitted air condition unit. But the unit did manage to cool down the apartment and we weren't too hot.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay immensely. We liked the apartment very much and would go again. Nerja is beautiful and the bars near the balcony were lovely. My memory of sitting in a bar near the church, eating tapas and drinking spanish wine, listening to a busking violinist whilst people were strolling by, will stay in my memory a long time.
