The El Capistrano Village is a fashionable development of established villas and apartments located on a hillside over-looking the main town with views out over the sea and mountains. The Village is an idyllic, flower strewn, well maintained area with beautiful pedestrian pathways – ideal for young families or longer stays over the winter.
The apartments at El Capistrano range from 2 person studios to large villas with fully equipped kitchens, living area and satellite television offering approximately 25 Sky channels. Linen and bathroom towels are also provided. You just need to bring towels for beach/pools. At the El Capistrano you will find three superb communal swimming pools (plus two infant pools) with lifeguards operating during the Spring/Summer seasons, a small supermarket, bar, ATM and a privately owned tennis club 'next door' to the village.
The town of Nerja, plus numerous beaches, are within walking distance but there is also an excellent bus or taxi service to take you the 1.5km up or down the hill. The wonderful Burriana Beach as well as numerous other beaches are also only close by. You will find a restaurant on El Capistrano Village and also the Cueva Bar which is open every evening. There are several other restaurants close to the Village if you do not wish to venture into town or to the beach for restaurant facilities.

This a girls week-end we have done or some 8+years now, using independant booking through Superbreak.The Capistrano complex , nerja club hoteljust on the outskirts of Nerja are excellent value for money and great to stay at. places to visit? - Nerja at night especially on St.Johns celebrations June 23rd ( always celerbrated on the actual day) as there are fireworks and bonfires on the beach, live music and dancing in the streets. A good Spanish celebration, which is not roudy just great fun. Collapse

One of the nicest villages on the edge of the nicest town (Nerja) on the Costa del Sol, south coast of Spain. Built in the 1970's and 80's with great gardens, two swimming pools, and lots of pedestrian walkways, this pueblo-style development offers a great standard of life or a quiet, delightful holiday. Most houses and apartments are owner-occupied, but plenty available for rent. One kilometre from the town (Nerja), one kilometre from the beach (Playa Burriana). Backed by hills and mountains, walking from the door is possible. Nice drives available, and perfect for motorcyclists and cyclists. Sierra Nevada mountains just a couple of hours away by car. Granada even closer. Málaga and it's airport 50 kilometres (airport 70 by motorway route). Hire cars are cheap with the usual "extras" for full insurance cover €5-10 per day and big deposits if you don't take it. Taxis from the airport are best booked in advance and Nerja companies do a good price (€65-80) and are reliable, good cars and will meet and greet with a sign with your name. The Village has a bar (La Cueva) which does good simple meals and is to some extent vegetarian friendly. There are two large supermarkets very near and a small shop within the village. Tennis on the doorstep and a public gym and heated indoor pool are close by, near the Campo de Football, a popular training venue for the youth teams from several big football clubs. Burriana Beach has good facilities, including a dive school, and many bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. The Los Arcos Hotel (Spanish character) and Nerja Club Hotel (international, mostly British guests) are nearby, both have good restaurants and bars. The Nerja Club is buffet style and great value for the very hungry. Nerja is a lovely little town, originally a fishing village, with few high rise buildings. Being just off the main road (N340) and not on a rail line, it has retained some of its character. Some describe it as the jewel of the Costa del Sol. While other towns have gone downhill, such as Marbella, Nerja has got better. Parking is difficult and traffic in the town can be heavy. Buses are frequent and cheap to Malaga and most other Andalusian towns. Málaga has great history, culture and shopping. Nearby villages such as Frigiliana and Maro are cute and great to visit for a half-day. The Caves of Nerja (walking distance from El Capistrano Village) are a world famous attraction, very large cave complex with prehistoric remains and art. Because of the severe recession in Spain, rents are reasonable and property to buy is cheap. Nerja is not noted for its nightlife - there are a few bars and clubs in Tutti-Frutti Square and it buzzes in the summer, but quiet at other times of year. The Cultural Centre has excellent music, dance and drama events. Top of the range tourist and residential village, hard to beat for facilities within a kilometre, great for relaxation and health, not so good for nightlife and parties, or golfers, who need to travel to a course.

The path to the Apartment we were to spend our holiday in was blocked in both directions by building rubble and barriers. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon of a Holiday weekend so the Management office was closed until the following Tuesday with no Emergency number visible anywhere. Trying to climb over safety barriers, mounds of soil down a very steep path and passing open sewers with our luggage did not really appeal to us. We had no option to go to a Rental office and rent an alternative apartment. So through no fault our own we ended up paying twice for our accommodation. The Management (deputy chairman} could not have cared less and offered no compensation. All he kept saying was 'claim on your holiday insurance' and became quite aggressive. The entire organisation has no concept of customer care. You travel here at your peril. if things go wrong you are your own, Don't expect any sympathy, go somewhere else. Collapse

Patched up broken furniture on the balcony, 1 chair re-broke when I was sat on it, parasol stuck together with black tape and table was full of filler. Inside wasn't any better uncomfortable little beds with basic bedding on, curtain (bit of cloth really) didn't even reach the bottom of the window. Kitchen basic very little of anything, chipped glass which was the only one bigger than a thimble and 1 of the 2 odd mugs leaked from the bottom. We were left with portable cot all week and an extra mattress behind the couch all week after being told it would be moved, service and cleaning none existent. Worst of all it is not in El Capistrano Village it is Oasis Capistrano which is further outside Nerja and facilities not as good. Collapse

I visited nerja for a wedding in june with my boyfriend. Altough i know a few other guests had problems with there villas, we really enjoyed ours. The hills were difficult but the views from the top were fabulous. Our villa was amazing. It was our first trip away together and it really made it out of this world. The pool was gorgeous and the pool attendants were really nice. We got really lucky. Overall i loved it Collapse

Capistrano is a large development of the village and San Juan. The apartments are privately owned and rented out through management agents. The décor and condition of the apartments is very much down to how well the owner keeps the apartment. The whole area is fairly well keep, in typical Spanish style ;) we stayed in san Juan the location of the apartment was 2 mins from the great pool and bars. The apartment was a bit tired but the balcony and view were brill. It is on a hill and a good 20min walk to the beach and 30min walk to the balcony or Europe. There is the blue bus that runs around the complex to the beach and town every hour and is only 1 euro. The cave bar on the complex is good and serves good food and happy hour 6-8. I would return here if I was sure of the apartment I was getting Collapse
