Hotel Balcon de Europa
Ranked #6 of 37 Hotels in Nerja
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2011

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights on our Honeymoon and this hotel was great. The staff were extremely friendly and spoke decent English. The rooms are generally small, but you are on the ocean so that's a plus.

However, being in our mid 30's we felt like the youngest vacationers there in late June.

When in Nerja, don't miss Ayo's paella on Burriana beach. It's a 15-25 minute walk to the other beach, but totaly worth it! All you can eat for less than 8 euro's and delicious!!!

We booked the standard room and it was a huge disappointment .It had a tiny window that looked on to a wall and the room itself was small without any balcony When we asked to be moved ,they could only relocate us to a room with a sea view .This had an extra charge of €25 per night and we were booked for eight nights so it was an extra expense.I emailed the hotel on return home and express my disappointment but received a rather curt reply.The spa or fitness was not opened during our stay.Its a poor four star hotel more like a good three star. Location was good and Nerja is a lovely place. We will return to Nerja but not to this hotel.

My friend and I enjoyed a 3-night stay at Hotel Balcon de Europa. The hotel has a prime location with the entrance directly on the Balcon de Europa and rooms are available with a sea view. Hotel staff were nice (particularly the sunbed man) and the room we had was quite spacious and had air conditioning. The hotel breakfast choice is good - served as a buffet, both Continental and English is offered. The only downside to the hotel is that the room decor is dated but this is a small point in the great scheme of things! I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, pay a little more and enjoy a sea view!

This was our third holiday to the town and we targeted this hotel as our prefered place to stay. We stayed for 14 night. The hotel is built down from the top of the cliff to the beach 6 floors below. Access to the hotel is on foot as the local streets have been closed to traffic. The hotel is clean and the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. The food was always good and on occasions excellent. Dinner was waiter service 5 days and buffet 2 days per week. Breakfast was a little repetative if you wanted hot food, but there was plenty of choice of other delights. Our room was a suite with a balcony and usual offices. Evening entertainment was a pianist in one of the two bars, not our cup of tea but hear good reports. There was no organised activities during the day. If you arrive by car the hotel can provide garage parking at 11 euros per day, other than that parking is virtually impossible or expensive. The pool is really a plunge pool, if you want to practice for the olympics you need to look elsewhere. We enjoyed our stay and there isn't much we found wrong with the place. If you want 5 star service for 4 star prices then this may fit your requirements.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms have unobstructive sea views but are more expensive, worth be specific as to what...

We Stayed at the hotel again June/July 2011 for 15 days and as per previous years experienced a brilliant relaxed holiday.
We Decided to go Half Board this year and although Nerja has hundreds of restaurants and cafe's to choose from we dined at the hotel several times.
The hotel has also been subject to a recent refurbishment and the room we stayed in was excellent, had a great sea view, new designer style decor and was overall very comfortable.
As you can imagine we didn't spend much time in the room, but when we did it was cleaned daily to a very high standard of service as always.
The meals in the restaurant were excellent, with possibly one of the best sea views to have while dining in Nerja.
The food was varied and offered a great variety to cover all palates and the local wines were of a good standard.
Overall I cannot fault this hotel and can understand the people who return here year after year to enjoy its comfort, excellent service and to just watch the world go by.
