    • Stayed 4 nights

    Our booked room was dirty ( a lot of hair on the floor) and a bit overaged. The bed was very small and old, 140 cm by 180 cm. The first apartment had an ashtray-smell, but the second one as well.

    We've got another room after asking, which was better then the first one. The bed was a lot bigger then the first one. Both rooms had a small balcony with seaview.

    The apartment was really dirty, we booked at 12:00h and they gave us the key at 14:30h. Nothing was clean. Horrible!

    The only good thing was the location

    Staff was not very friendly and helpful. Check in is 2 pm but check out is 10 am never seen a hotel taking 4 hours to clear and clean the room. Normally they offer 12 noon check out and 2 pm check in.

    Location was great, views were great.

    Nothing. There was just one issue with payment because the stuff was sure that normally Booking is not taking the payment from clients' accounts. But when we discussed the issue, they showed their understanding even if they were not sure if we really paid. Hope they found out what was the reason for it :)

    Excellent place! After reading the comments, I was not sure if I should choose this one, but it was the best decision ever. The place is great, hosts are really friendly and helpful. There is a bar were you can eat nice food. The room exceeded our expectations. Maybe it was not well-furnished, for example some things are missing in the kitchen, but we didn't care because it was enough, the room was spacious and clean, air-conditioning worked perfect, and this balcony and view: amazing for a drink or two together :) ! Maro is a perfect place to stay. When we came here, orquestra was going from one street to another, collecting people, to finally have concert just in front of our balcony :) it was great to see how people enjoy it there. There are a few beaches, I trully recommend Playa de Maro and more wild La Caleta the Maro. Caves de Nerja are just next to it, really worth the visit.

    Collecting the keys and paying the bill involved quite a wait, other than that, provision of a kettle would have been a bonus. The Cafeteria nect door opens long hours but it would have been nice to make a cup of tea in the room. The lady who sorts out the keys and takes payments is here there and everywhere, the provision of her mobile phone number would be beneficial. The girls from the cafe will sort you out eventually but their priority is the cafe customers and if you are in a hurry, the time waiting to pay can be frustrating.

    Exceptionally clean and comfortable with a magnificent view.

    Beautiful view, friendly hosts, quiet beaches, only 30 minutes walk to Nerja. Early check-in was not a problem. Cash payment or card is both fine. We strongly recommend going to Apartamentos Balcón de Maro. Speaking spanish is not a necesity butdefinitely helpful.

    A couple of things I didn't like- had to hang around as there was no reception, they are running the reception out of the cafe next door- so depending on how busy they are you may need to wait to be accommodated. The room also stunk really bad of drain blocked. So it wasn't very comfortable in the room due to the smell- but once this has been fixed- it's a good value for the money.

    I liked the location- quiet and a short drive to a lovely beach, Nice view of the magnollia trees and beach from level 1.
