“Lovely, lovely place!”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

Just spent 4 nights at Balcon de Europa and had a great stay. The location is brilliant - right on the coast and extremely close to the Balcon itself (which is quite useful if you get lost on the way home from the pub...). We were fortunate enough to get an upgrade to a junior suite after some booking problems and next time we go to Nerja we shall definitely book the same: wonderful view over the sea, beautiful sunrises, audible waves...really nice (not that our original room was bad, just that the junior suite is so much better). Breakfast was fine - fresh juices, fruit, cheeses, sausages, eggs etc - though not spectacular. Nice cool pool to dip in now and again and our own private beach (though get out early - it fills up quickly). All in all a lovely stay in what must be the best hotel in Nerja.

Room Tip: Junior suite facing the sea is a must!

My husband and I have just returned from a week in Nerja staying at the Balcon de Europa. A hotel in a fantastic location, offering beautiful views and central to the shops, beaches and restaurants. Our room was 701 overlooking the Balcon, where we could sit and people watch. Definately worth paying extra for a sea view. Our room was spacious and very clean. we had room service every day. The hotel food is OK. The breakfasts are buffet style with plenty of choice. The evening meal is waiter service, apart from two nights when it was buffet. I have to say the evening meals were average. I thought the portions were quite small and some of the meals were bland, the buffet evenings were better.
The beach is very nice and there is a small pool but its the view that you're going for.....
There were a couple of weddings in the hotel during our stay. whilst the noise didnt bother us I would suspect if your room was on the first floor it might have been a bit noisy.
I would definately consider this hotel if we decided to visit Nerja again. However would probably stay bed and breakfast and sample some of the fabulous restaurants in the vicinity.
Finally, whilst we had a fabulous holiday - the weather was disappointing which is something no one can book in advance. We were told it was very unusual to have weather like we had at that time of year, apparently they hadn't seen rain since March, typical!!!! therefore pack a brolly and a pack a mac - just in case.!!

Room Tip: pay the extra for a sea view - worth every penny

Just returned from four lovely nights at the Balcon de Europa. It's a perfect location, right on The Balcon at the centre of the old town, with fantastic views. Whilst we paid extra for a room overlooking the beach because we were celebrating and wanted something a "bit special", I'm not sure that we needed to because all rooms seemed to have a good view. The food wasn't fine dining but it was much better than expected given that we had read some reviews to suggest it wasn't great. We found the service to be good and would definitely return to this hotel.

My husband and I have just returned from a week at The Balconde Europa Hotel in Nerja.
We had a very nice suite overlooking the beach but was so disappointed with the hotel in general. It was never stated on any sites that it is famous for lots of noisy Irish weddings and so not a peaceful evening when these were on - three in a week, and appartently sometimes more.
The breakfasts were very good , but apart from the two buffet evenings which were fine, the evening meals were very poor, so half board is not to be advised. There was no actual service from staff - we asked for a complimentary tray to make tea, coffee etc. but were just given a kettle and two cups and saucers.
The hotel definitely has the best location in Nerja but we thought it obviously rests on its laurels and fails as a four star hotel in our opinion - such a shame - it seemed to have no soul.
Sorry to sound negative but it was sadly lacking and most disappointing.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor with balcony overlooking the beach

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.
