Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Carabeo
Calle Hernando de Carabeo 34, Nerja, Andalusia, 29780, Spain Fodor's Choice
Down a side street near the center of town but still near the sea, this British-owned boutique hotel combines a great location and views with comfortable, pleasant rooms. You'll find shelves of books, antiques, and cozy overstuffed sofas in the downstairs sitting room. Colorful oil paintings by the local artist David Broadhead are showcased throughout the property. The excellent Restaurant 34 serves contemporary and traditional dishes such as scallops in lemon and ginger, and roast pork—you can dine on the extended terrace with sea views. For a lighter bite, try Tapas Bar 34, with a street-side terrace. The hotel is usually closed from December through February, but check exact dates. Rooms with sea views are well worth the extra cost.
