“My favourite place in Spain”
Reviewed 28 September 2012 via mobile

Just back from our 4th stay in the balcon and I still love it!
I got great help from their reservations with my booking as I had left it a little late and it is a popular hotel.
The staff, as usual were kind, friendly and helpful.
We stayed half board again as the location and views from their dining room makes my holiday.
The breakfast buffet had improved since last year and the presentation was lovely.
Some reviewers have not liked the evening meals but for me they have improved too.
the pool area and the outdoor jacuzzi are always spotlessly clean.
The beach is gorgeous, and right on your doorstep.
Always pay the extra for the rooms with the sea views and fall asleep and wake up listening to the sea , beautiful.
I can't wait to return :-)

This hotel is situated in the town centre of Nerja
The Hotel is right on the sea front
I stayed in an inside room, no external view.
This is my second stay at this hotel and the inside room 808, far nicer than the previous room i stayed in.
Good spacious room, air con, plenty of cupboard and wardarobe space. Did not feel like an inside room.
I was moved to room 200 the next morning to have a late check out, this room was a single room with a sea view, no balcony. Not as spacious.
Good room service menu, but plenty of places to eat very nearby.
No Kettle in the room.

Room Tip: Room 808 is a nice inside room.

Stayed at this hotel while attending a wedding at the local church.The location was perfect.
The view from our room of the sea was fantastic!
I found the website pictures could do with being updated of the rooms, as I expected them to be a bit dated, and was pleasantly surprised with how they actually were, however there are some areas that could be modernised, but overall I really liked it.
Helpful and friendly staff make it a place you would return to.

Clean, friendly hotel with a great central location. The ground floor opens onto a small sandy beach and the sixth floor opens onto the Balcon de Europa, where everyone congregates to enjoy the view and sometimes live music. Great bars and restaurants are all nearby. Just one thing-the hotel lift is a bit slow.

Room Tip: The lift is slow, Reception is on the sixth floor and from here you can reach the nearby shops, bars...

We have been coming to the Hotel Balcon de Europa for many years.
This hotel is lovely, in the most fantastic position looking out to sea in one direction and along the coastline with mountain views in the other.
The staff are wonderful, friendly, helpful and courteous.
Rooms have recently been refurbished and are spotlessly clean as is the hotel throughout.
Breakfast offers everything you could wish for and more (Cava with your cornflakes if required!)
Nerja is a beautiful town which retains its Spanish traditions. There are lots of lovely bars a restaurants.The hotel's own El Nautico bar is right on the beach and offers great food and drinks in an unrivalled position.
We love it here! We have been to many hotels in many places over the years but this remains our firm favourite.
Will be back for New Year!

Room Tip: Sea view and balcony rooms offer incredible views..

We recently spent 10 nights at the Hotel Balcon de Europa - unfortunately our room (914) was located overlooking the nearby Cochranes Hotel which had numerous wedding parties during our stay. We had very little sleep on 3 nights with some minor disruptions on other nights. The hotel its self was good - the staff were friendly and efficient although we had to wait until mid to late afternoon for our room to be serviced and on one occasion had to contact reception as they had missed it completely. Nerja is a beautiful town with a propensity of excellent bars and restaurants. In fairness to the hotel they can do very little about the noise and behaviour of the customers attending Cochranes.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 9th floor have the noise of the Air Conditioning units from the roof.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of September.Booked a double room with no sea view or balcony - room was in good state of decoration and clean,however too small to accommodate the 2 three quarter sized beds in it.There seems to be charges for everything.Being charged to sit on a sunbed which already belongs to the hotel is not on!
Helpful staff and lovely location but not worth it's 4 star rating.Unlikely to return,there are better options available in Nerja.

Room Tip: If you are staying for more than a couple of days,make sure you book a room with a sea view and balc...
