Hotel Balcon de Europa
Ranked #6 of 37 Hotels in Nerja
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 March 2014

I stayed at this hotel for one night in March. It's super clean and the duvet cover and curatins had nice marine motif and beautiful shades of blue and smelled really fresh and nice. I even liked the wall paper and even the bathroom had nice views of the sea. The single room I stayed in also had a great huge window-wall overlooking the Med. TV; SkyNews, hotel amenities etc.

Breakfast was delightful with excellent views of the sea and good service. I got a good pot of tea, although, it was not as strong as I'd liked to be it didn't really matter as there was plenty of fresh fruit and fruit juices.

Nice receptionists and helpful conceirge. One last remark, the hotel could invest in new beach towels. If ever in Nerja again, I would'nt think twice about staying there again.

Booked a package with Jet2.com and chose hotel from reviews. We were not disappointed, from checking in, to meals and room service the staff were all polite and helpful. Superb location, right on the beach with amazing sea views. The hotel was very, very clean - one of the best we have stayed in. Breakfasts very good and evening meals good.

Planning to return again next year.

Room Tip: We had a room on the first floor, facing the sea, with a balcony. Lovely room and only one flight o...

Have not stayed at this hotel for a few years as the food was so poor. Was in Nerja so had lunch at their beachside restaurant. Food was OK but for anything other than a snack very expensive BUT a location to die for - if you are not staying at the hotel, I wouldn't then go down there for a drink or a coffee and watch the sea. A few days later went into their Balcon level café and amazing the staff was as surly and non caring as they were years back. Rumour has it that they have a new director if so with just a small amount of effort they could have a hotel to be proud of.

We had another visit to the Hotel de Balcon from the 14th to the 17th of March. The service was as good as our last visit, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
On our previous visit we had a balcony at the rear of the hotel and a gorgeous sea view.
On this visit we had the corner room on the 8th floor, which gave a lovely side view of the sea and the ability to people watch the foot traffic on the Balcon. It was great to watch all the locals feeding the group of cats that have made the Balcon their home.
The Hotel was spotless as usual and the breakfast is great and in a lovely room. Even although we were booked on half board, I cannot comment on the evening meals, as we always go out for dinner as there are so many fantastic restaurants within a couple of minutes walk of the hotel.
There are many beautiful looking hotels in Nerja, but given the Hotel de Balcons location, the staff, and service, this hotel has to be our favourite and we will return again.

Having just spent the last 5 nights at the BdE it reminds you of a bygone era slightly old fashioned but up to date with all the things you would expect from a hotel today. The Balcon could probably boast with good cause to being in the best location in Nerja with outstanding views out to sea. It satisfies to a high std. some of the integral fundamentals when staying in a hotel, that of sleeping, eating, service and comfort without which it would fail. Where you might expect a hotel of this std. in a popular costa holiday resort to possess is a decent sized pool and it completely fails on that front, however, it's own little virtually private beach makes up for that in spades. The thing that probably makes the BdE so enjoyable as a place to stay is its staff, they at every level were excellent. If returning to Nerja it would be hard to stay anywhere else !!

We have had a good week at the Balcon. The Hotel is excellently positioned in the very heart of a Nerja and is well run/managed and spotlessly clean. The rooms are good, everything works, and the staff are excellent. We stayed on a half board basis. Breakfast was very simple, fresh, and very good. Dinner however, was only ok. We preferred the two evenings that were buffet style. The set menus were acceptable but rather unexciting. If you want variety try a number of the Spanish restaurants/bar just beyond the town centre. They all do excellent tapas or fish dishes. For a real treat go down to Burriana beach and have a 6euro paella!

Zero complaints, a complete bargain. We booked an interior room (no view, but we prefer to just sleep in the room and then go outside to experience the view), free wifi, included an expansive buffet breakfast, and free beach towel service and chairs on a semi private beach all for €78.

Beds were comfortable. Room was sized well. Location and views were stunning. Wifi speed was satisfactory. I'd definitely stay here again and recommend to all my friends.
