Lovely Apartment, Amazing holiday
We have just returned home from an amazing 2 week holiday in Nerja. The apartment is lovely and spacious. There were 4 of us (2 adults a Teenager and a 6-year-old).
The apartment is well equipped including beach/pool towel, deck chairs to use at the pool, shopping trolley and a BBQ.
As stated in other reviews the pool area was brilliant (5 min walk from apartment), you can hire the sun beds for €3 or take your own chairs down which we did (2 deck chairs from the apartment). The pool side bar was fab especially for the traditional holiday (beer ‘o clock).
The area around the apartment is quite hilly as you are situated at the base of the mountain. The plus side of this is that it gives you incredible views of the mountains and the sea view from the balcony, however if you need to do a food shop which includes a couple of 8 litre bottles of water and you don’t have a car it could become tricky.
The supermarket at the bottom of the hill (Mercadona) offers a delivery service for €4, so you go round the supermarket do your shop and then leave it there for them to deliver at a time slot you have chosen (it’s a bit like Iceland’s services) well worth it if you don’t have a car.
The town and beach were both around a 20-minute walk (all downhill) and then we sometimes got a taxi back for around €8. The bus stop that is a few yards away from the apartment is just €1 per person and will take you to the town centre and there are some timeslots where is goes down to the beach as well.
We visited the caves which were very close to the apartment, we got a taxi there as we hadn’t worked the bus system out yet it was about €8. When we were done there, the local bus was outside for €1.15 each.
Finally we visited a waterpark there are 2, in the end we chose Aquavelis, they offer a free coach from the other supermarket (Supersol) at the bottom of the hill from the apartment, the coach leaves at 10:20am gets you to waterpark at 11am and then collects you again at 6:45pm. We weren’t sure if we would last that long however we did, the water park is brilliant, there is a wave pool and some fun slides, we went with a teenager and a 6 year old and was enjoyed by all. There are a couple of restaurants at the waterpark too. We booked our tickets online, but I think you might be able to book from tourist information in town.
We used Nerja taxi transfer from airport brilliant service,
Pauline was brilliant with any questions we had; We loved our stay! Thank you
Would advise car hire place is very hilly due to near the mountains
Very clean and tidy beautiful surroundings
This is a lovely spacious apartment. Very nicely decorated and very well equipped. My husband and I stayed with our 2 teenage daughters recently and really enjoyed our stay. It’s a bit out of the way. The nearest beach is a good 15 minute walk and it’s about a 20-25 minute walk into the main part of Nerja. The area is also very hilly. You can get a bus into town which only costs a € and a cab back was about £8. There is a lovely restaurant by the pool area with very friendly staff. Also lots of other restaurants near by. The pool area is very nice and well maintained. It was very busy as you would expect at this time of year. You can hire sun-beds for €3 a day. There is a life guard on duty. It’s about a 5 min walk to the pool area from the apartment. Pauline was very helpful and easy to contact before we went, answering any questions we had. Overall a very good experience.

We had a wonderful stay with are 3 children the pools were great! the house Is excellent and location great !! The owners are very helpful with any questions we had would highly reccomend and we hope to return soon.
A wonderful apartment in a great location, perfect for a family holiday
Casa Mariposa was a fantastic choice for our stay in Nerja. We have a 3 year old so having plently of space, plus a garden was ideal, and she loved the nearby children’s pool.
The apartment was very clean and tastefully decorated, and Pauline and Sean were very helpful with our questions. Can highly recommend and hope to visit again some day!
April 2019 at El Capistrano
We spent a wonderful month at El Capistrano. Everything was exactly as stated. We took several day tours spent time at the beach and were very fortunate to be in Nerja for Easter celebrations. Pauline was very helpful with many suggestions of places to visit and eat. If we had a concern she was back to us immediately. We would definitely recommend staying here.
