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.

Has to be one of the best in Nerja

A great central location. In the heart of the tourist centre and next to the main attraction. Hotel seems a bit older but still in impecible condition, well maintained and looks like it is under modernisation floor by floor. Staff are all very friendly and seems to be the case most places in Nerja. Breakfasts very good. Hotel cosy.More

This is my favourite Hotel. Set in a stunning location at the centre of Nerja I received a very warm friendly greeting at reception and was then shown to my delightful room with a balcony overlooking the beach,the blue sea and lush greenery. They serve a good variety of choice menus and international food in their spacious airy dining room. All rooms are clean and comfortable with excellent service throughout . Back less than a couple of weeks ago but missing it already!More

Marguerite P,


Stayed here for week in April having been recommended by a friend. We were not disappointed. Excellent location, accomodation very comfortable (we were lucky enough to stay in a sea view family suite), food was to a very high standard and we did not have a bad meal during the whole week. All staff in the main were pleasant & attentive. The only exception to this was in the snack bar. Our personal experience on the two occasions we spent there was that we waited too long for service & in particular getting the bill on our second visit proved so lengthy that in the end we gave up waiting & left without paying (we went to reception & had it added to our account instead). We therefore preferred to go elsewhere outside of the hotel for lunch after that & this proved to be a much better experience both in terms of service & value for money. Regardless of this we both agreed we would happily return to this hotel in the future.More

Fabulous Hotel

Had a fantastic holiday at this hotel. Stayed for 1 week on half board basis 26th March - 2nd April. Weather was excellent. Location of the hotel is superb - right on the beach at the same time as being in the centre of Nerja. Nerja is a beautiful town - typically Spanish with lots of bars, restaurants and shops. Food at the hotel is very good - buffet breakfasts however the evening meal alternated between buffet one evening and then 'al a carte' the next. I didn't think the standard was 'al a carte' but very nice all the same. There was always plenty of choice. Restaurant staff were very attentive. The rooms were lovely - we had a sea-view room with a balcony. The hotel is very clean and the maid service in the room was excellent. Beach towels are provided on a daily basis. There was some maintenance work going on in the corridors (painting) but disruption was kept to a minimum. The staff were extremely polite and helpful - they went out of their way to help you. There were plenty of sunbeds available on the terrace and on the beach - extra sunbeds available around the pool area. The swimming pool is quite small and although not very busy at this time of year, it could get quite crowded in the summer season. The hotel has a very warm and friendly atmosphere - definitely felt welcome. We had a fabulous stay and we definitely would return.More

We stayed over Easter and had a wonderful stay. We got in early and our room wasn't ready but they were able to offer us an upgrade to a sea side room at a very reasonable rate. The views were amazing. The staff are extremely helpful and enthusiastic about making your stay enjoyable. I'll mention they spoke good English because it seems that is important to many. We were able to see the Easter procession which was a lot smaller than the ones we saw in Sevilla, but it was nice not to have the huge crowds! We did not eat at the hotel because there were so many cafes right outside the hotel that were very good and very reasonably priced. They have a nice but small private beach, there is a lager public one within walking distance. There is also a very nice boardwalk along the water, also within walking distance. Nerja is a great little beach town and a wonderful place to stay and just relax.More
