Just returned from 10 days absolutely would recommend , food great very varied , breakfast the best can't really fault this hotel , room was just behind reception and although didn't have a balcony and looked onto a small courtyard (wall) it was very peaceful and we had fantastic sleeps, staff are also great ,will definitely return very soon :)

Sadly just returned from Nerja having spent a glorious sunny week staying (as a couple) in the Balcon de Europa. We have stayed in this hotel quite a number of times mostly because of its prime location ( just off the promenade and the main square) . However we found a few welcome improvements have been made to the hotel this year e.g the breakfast is vastly improved with freshly cooked omellettes and crepes to order now on the menu, extended breakfast times up to 11 am and just an overall more "relaxed" feel to the running of the hotel! We booked half board on one occasion before and didn't enjoy the evening meal at all so maybe this has improved also? Didn't check it out. Lunch on the terrace is excellent and dinner vouchers can be exchanged for lunch (but not every day)
Staff as always were very pleasant and really appreciated us making an effort to converse in basic Spanish!! Unfortunately we couldn't secure a late check-out which was very disappointing in 32 degree heat, we would never make that mistake again and will check this out at time of booking but they were very apologetic and offered us a room to shower with fresh towels and access to the pool until our taxi arrived. Not really a hotel for young children though, pool area too small and congested especially in August. A tad expensive but we will definitely return hopefully sooner rather than later!!!

Room Tip: Junior suite probably not worth the extra cost unless you intend staying indoors a lot

I spent 8 happy days at the Hotel Balcon de Europa. Rooms are smallish but clean and comfortable. It is reasonably priced. Great staff. The best part is the beach. You take an elevator down to the beach. I know from experience that most spanish hotels that say they are on the beach actually aren't. This one is. You can rent an umbrella and bed for 3 Euros. Make sure you reserve your favorite spot for the rest of your stay. You can leave your stuff and walk into town and come back and tan some more. Lovely Place!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a beachfront room. All the rooms have views but the balcony side is noisy.

My third time at Balcon de Europa, it never disappoint you. Special mention to the staff, from the bellboy to the general manager, always at your disposal. I really appreciate the personal attention of the GM, Javier López Sánchez-Prieto. You made our stay there unforgettable. Love Spain, Malaga, Balcon de Europa and their people, and of course their "tapas". Hope to be there again very soon.

The Hotel is situated right in the centre of Nerja and the location is absolutely fantastic. The staff are wonderful and really helpful. There are plenty of good restaurants and Tapas bars close by. the beach is directly next to the hotel.

Room Tip: We had room 802 which looks over the Balcon however, it wasn't noisy at all

After a week of traveling around Spain, decided to wind down in Nerja. Choose this hotel due to location. And it was the right choice. The location is fabulous right in the center of Nerja and it has its own almost private beach directly in front of the hotel. It has plenty of sunbeds and the hotel has a bar/resteraunt right on the beach making it easy for an mid-day snack/drink/ice-cream break. The rooms to book must be beach view which is fantastic. Not side-view but front beach view. The room itself is stylish and roomy but the bathroom is a bit small and dated. But as the hotel itself, everything is very cleam and looked after and maintained at a high level. The breakfast buffet is wide in choice and offers made to order eggs and crepes. Nerja itslef has a lot of great reseraunts so skip the dinner plan at the hotel. Even though it is right in the middle of things, we had great peacefull nights with quite sleep. Only down thing is reserve your sunbed before breakfast to get the location you want.

Stayed here for 6 nights. The location is outstanding as well as the beach in front of the hotel. The hotel is getting a bit old but everything is very well maintained, the AC is new an quite, The dining facilities are great, serve and outstanding buffet breakfast with eggs and crepes made to order, the sea-view rooms provide great views of the beach and sea. Its great to have the hotel bar next to the beach. The hotels central location make it perfect for walks about town. It has a small pool which is good for cooling off. But no big pool is needed when the beach is so good. Only bad thing is the poor wifi. But it is free and works so no big deal.
