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.

First holiday for seven years
Visited this hotel in Nerja - resort recommended by a friend but the hotel booked on line.Overall this hotel is four star for location only - the other facilities were nowhere near. The restaurant food was average and the descriptions of the food very hit and miss. For example "pork" was served on their buffet nights - actualy gammon and of poor quality. The piano bar offering entertainment four nights a week is closed yet is still advertised as you enter the hotel. Don't get me wrong the waiters and bar staff are very good but are regularly "covering up" for kitchen bloopers. In addition, in temperatures of 28 degrees many people were asking for air conditioning - we were all told this was "not available" until the summer. Surely we are their guests and our opinions should count - management seemed oblivious to this. We won't return.More

We visited here a number of times on a recent trip to Nerja for coffee and beverages. We sat outside during the day and 'people watched' whilst enjoying the attentive service and sat inside at night time and enjoyed the nice relaxed atmosphere. Good value for money considering it is linked to the balcony. We will be back.More

Lovely hotel, brilliant views of the sea.
The views of the sea from this hotel are absolutely stunning. It's also a well situated hotel in the centre of Nerja, giving easy access to the relatively small town centre. For first time visitors here, I would say that it is not a mega touristy place, so many of the locals can Inglewood converse on Spanish - they are patient and friendly so no need to worry. Just be prepared for it. More

First time visit but not the last
Our first visit to the Balcon on half board basis met our expectations we had a side sea view room which was bright & well decorated & clean. The public rooms were comfortable & usually quiet. All the staff were friendly, helpful & always had a word they seemed to be happy at their work. Sunbathing was not a problem the 10 days we were there in April beds always available any time of day either at the small pool area, the terrace at the beach or the small beach itself (unless the sea was rough) which happened on numerous days. Towel card issued on checking in & could be changed at reception daily between 16 30 & 18 30. As you would expect in a hotel bar prices a little steep but they have a happy hour in the evening which got fairly busy & service a bit slow due to only being one waiter on the times we were their. On the other hand the wine with the evening meal was fairly priced I thought. Now to the food I heard some comments that the food was disappointing one the whole I disagree with this, breakfast had a great selection from fruit juice to full English, breads, meats, cheeses, cereals, porridge, etc. even sparkling wine! Never had lunch though so can't comment there. Evening meal was a mix waiter service, international buffet & a gala night the buffet nights were our favourite but the waiter service meals were fine & more vegetable options were available in help yourself hot trays. What people forget is this is mass catering & sure the meals were not up to "home cooked" standard but they did a good job always well presented & at the right temperature. The staff in the restaurant were also very efficient & professional as most are on the continent unlike some of its British counterparts. Would we return again - most certainly!More
Fantastic location, fantastic hotel, so clean and friendly
Stayed at this hotel for a week April 2015. The hotel was immaculate, rooms are cleaned daily, while not spacious, enough for what you require. Stayed bed and breakfast which was buffet style, again excellent, so much choice The staff were so pleasant and helpful every day. There can be a bit of noise from the Irish bar next door depending on your room but your on holiday and people are enjoying themselves, not a problem. The location is fantastic, a stroll to the quaint bars and restaurants of Nerja. I would definitely stay here again as i found Nerja one of the nicest places i have visited in Spain and i have been to a few. The simple fact is in every bar and restaurant you are served by Spanish people which really makes you feel you are on holiday.More
