Hotel Balcon de Europa  

Sandwiched between the beach and the atmospheric old quarter, Hotel Balcon de Europa boasts one of the best locations in Nerja.

Named after Nerja’s famous Balcon de Europa viewpoint, which sits just to the left of the hotel, this property has one of the best locations in town.

The hotel is built onto the cliff face, and has a bit of a topsy-turvy layout. The reception and pool are up on the sixth floor, at street level, while the beach and restaurant are down on the bottom level. This hotel is part of the Simply Travel range until April 2017.

Best Holiday Ever!

This really was the perfect holiday for us. Our room was amazing - it was almost on the beach and we could hear the sea from our bed. Everything spotlessly clean and all staff couldn't do enough for us. We chose half board, and really enjoyed our food (especially the prawn in creamy whiskey sauce vol au vents on gala night!!). The beach at the back of the hotel (and the terrace) wasn't very big, so there weren't all that many sunbeds. However, we managed to get a sunbed for most of the day, and there were other larger beaches very nearby, so there was room for everyone. Other than a bit of low key music in the restaurant on a couple of nights, there was no entertainment in the hotel, which suits us. Each night we wondered out onto the Plaza to sit and listen to street entertainers whilst enjoying a cocktail or two. The narrow streets of Nerja really come to life at night, with all the shops staying open and numerous bars/bistros/restaurants. We got back home on Sunday and have just booked to return next year. Can't wait!More



Would definitely recommend this hotel great views staff brilliant from Rita in restaurant to juan (John) in reception and Beatrice. Would NOT recommend JET2 holidays flight delayed ok excepted but then to couch transfer which had gone by the time we arrived so had to wait virtually another hour to be put on unrelated couch who dropped us off 20 minute walk with bags and were told hotel at bottom of that road so we had no choice but to plod on than 10 minutes into walk met by hundreds I mean hundreds of tourists which we then had to battle through. Asked 4 people about hotel no speak English and sent us in 4 different directions eventually lovely Irish woman help us. So definitely DONT recommend JET2More


Lovely location but some disappointments

Great location for our all female (4 adult and 2 children) holiday. A few disappointments were that the evening dinner wasn't good if you arrived after 9.30 even though the time for dinner was until 10.30. Food not replenished. Breakfast was very good though so if we return we would probably consider bed and breakfast. The staff in dining areas weren't that friendly to us which was disappointing. Lovely helpful staff for beach towels and sun beds 😎More

Spectacular wedding venue

I recently attended a wedding reception at this hotel and I have to say, it was the most beautiful experience. It was an outdoor reception and the views at dinner were spectacular. I have been to lots of weddings throughout the years in various different countries but this hotel has the perfect backdrop for a wonderful romantic evening. I didn't stay in this hotel on this occasion but I definitely will look forward to booking in for a nice romantic getaway.More

Excellent in every way

Balcon, what can I say, it lived up to all the excellent reviews. Beautiful location on the Balcon over looking the sea. Room was spacious with balcony looking out to sea, could listen to the waves, wonderful. Food and service were excellent.More
