Weather: A lot of people consider the Costa Del Sol to have the best climate in mainland Europe. Averaging over 320 days of sunshine a year. Not over hot in summer [when other parts of the Med exceed 38oC]. And warmer sunnier and drier in winter [when most of Europe is below freezing the warmest place is likely to be the Costa Del Sol. Jan temps mid 60'S]. Nerja however has an even better climate than the rest of the coast. It has its own micro climate as a result of the sheltered bay and the mountains directly behind. El Capistrano Playa itself is very sheltered. There is nearly always a cooling breeze in the summer months and the lower terraces at the apartment is lovely and sheltered for sunbathing even in January. There is a local saying that well describes the climate, 'the sun spends the winter in Nerja and the breeze spends the summer'.

Lovely apartment we have thoroughly enjoyed staying there. Especially waking up in the morning to the sound and view of the sea. We will be back.

Top of Capistrano Playa!

  • 5 of 5

Once more we have enjoyed excellent , relaxing days on top of Capistrano Playa! We knew what we would get, since we have lived in the same apartment many times before, and we were not disappointed! Stunning view of beach and sea and many stairs to climb up a d down, but it is good exercise! Looking forward to coming back many times!

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Emma has made this apartment so comfortable & with everything needed for a lovely break but with style inside & out. It was spotlessly clean & well equipped. Even in March it was easy to keep the apartment warm in the cool evenings. Outside both terraces are lovely & the view stunning. We have stayed in different apartments in Capistrano playa and find it quiet and love the views. Here you not overlooked whether on the roof terrace or the lower terrace. Emma is very helpful from beginning to end. We would love to return.

Lovely modern apartment with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week in this clean, bright & up to date apartment, it's very well equipped, with all you could possibly need. The views are fabulous, especially from the top terrace which is very private, it's also very peaceful didn't hear any noise from other neighbours. The gardens are beautifully kept and its doesn't take to long to walk down to the beach & restaurants although it takes twice as long to come up, but helps to keep you fit and burn off what you've just eaten. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment and we would definitely go back. We visit Nerja regularly & this is one of the nicest apartments we have stayed in.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to 10 nights and it was ideal.

The view from both the balcony and roof terrace were fab. The complex is very nicely laid out, but apartments are on top of each other. We could see every other balcony from being at the top of the complex, but the roof terrace was not overlooked at all, so this is the best spot in the complex.

The pool is a few steps away, quiet and with sun loungers you can use. There is a separate children's pool and a snack bar (didn't use that).

There are a lot of steps and step walking down to the beach, also the easiest way to town. However, it's pleasant to walk through the gardens. The beach is wonderful with plenty of bars, restaurants, shops and lounger rentals. There is plenty to eat here or walk into town in about 15 minutes or so.

As well as the balcony and terrace, positives are very comfy bed and lovely powerful shower. Washing machine and dishwasher a nice bonus when on hols. The kitchen had everything you need for a meal in. There is no air con. The fan was fine for us in June with the window open. The complex is not a noisy one, so having the window open was fine.

We had questions before and during our stay and always had a quick response from Emma.

Possible things to consider: there is a freezer compartment that will hold ice cream and ice cubes, but not much more. It could get very warm in peak of summer. Steps up to apartment and down to beach may restrict some people. TV is great with lots of sky channels including sky sports, but is small. Nothing here would stop us booking again.

I'd recommend this apartment for anyone looking for a very comfortable stay, with views and in a great location for both beach and town. Ideal for a couple looking for a relaxing break.

Owner's Response: hi. thank you for taking the time to write a review. it's so lovely to hear you enjoyed your time at apartment522, it's great position and views. as well as being so private it's one of the few apartments that enjoys sun from sunrise to sunset which is a great bonus. it's good to get feedback on the tv channels as that was all upgraded this year to full sky package, as well as installing free wifi for the apartment. re the aircon i did have it wired in but as yet haven't had the need to fit it as the apartment does stay lovely and cool all through the summer, as you say with the fans and the lovely breeze coming up from the sea. it would be a pleasure to have you stay again at 522 should your travel plans bring you back to nerja. kind regards. emma.

Bill and Shirley – Stayed 14 to 28 Aug 2013

This is a great apartment in what we think is the best apartment complex in Nerja (we’ve stayed in quite a few different areas in Nerja). The apartment is really well equipped to a very high standard with everything we could have wanted for our holiday, and there were lots of little luxurious extras that we hadn’t expected. The bed is well worth a mention as it is lovely and comfortable – slept like a log! The balcony has fantastic views down to Burriana beach, and the roof terrace has the sun for the whole day and has fantastic views of the beach and the hills and countryside surrounding Nerja.

It was a short and very pleasant walk down to the beach through the beautiful gardens, and about a 20 minute walk into Nerja with plenty to do and see on the way. There is a bit of a climb up some steps from the beach to the apartment, but it isn’t too strenuous. A taxi home from Nerja was very reasonable at €7, and avoided the steps up from the beach. In the other direction, about a 10 minute walk away, was a supermarket with a free delivery service – very handy as we didn’t have a car.

We ate out most nights and there was a great selection of very good bars and restaurants in Burriana, in Nerja and between the two. On a couple of days when we stayed really late on the beach, we ate on the balcony. It was really very quiet and peaceful, and there was a great moonlit view of the sea and beach below.

There is lots to see and do in the area and there were plenty of events and activities in the town and down on Burriana beach. All-in-all we had a fantastic time here and really hope to return.
