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 fifth floor, at street level, while the beach and main restaurant are down on the bottom level.

We had only planned to stay one nigh in Nerja as I could find much that said it was a good place to stay for a week so having spent vast sums in Marbella, we headed to Nerja for our last night. First thing Parking If you arrive by car you will be told that there is none of the parking spaces available at the hotel car park. I don't actually belive there is a car par actually, I never found it. So we parked in the public car park. This then involves a walk of some 5 minutes to the hotel.If you've lots of cases you'll be a sweaty wreck come time to check in. Hotel. The reception has remained in a 70's timewarp with shrines to the original owners all over the place, this included busts (i hope they weren't death masks but i wouldn't be surprised) and portraits. There's plenty of varnished wood and very swirly wallpaper. The room: We went't cheap and got it. the room had no balcony, not a problem for one night but for a longer stay, the room would be quite opressive and the view of the air conditioners isn't the best in town. The beach although not private was good but get your loungers sorted sharpish. Bear in mind that if you're not using the lounger, they'll throw your kit off it and give it to someone else if you're not back in an hour. Can't think ofmuch else to say.More
The oil that keep the cogs of this Hotel turning are the staff!!
As you may have gathered from previous reviews, I like the "Balcon". It is an Hotel with many facets. It's three restaurants from sea side to street side, accommodation, leisure areas and location all go into making it a fine hotel but what makes it a Great Hotel, are the staff. They are always cheerful, helpful and as fast serving as the situation allows and the fact that I now know two and three generations speaks volumes. This year, whether from Global Warming or other influences, the beach is getting smaller with the consequence that sunbeds were at a premium. this is a problem that the management will have to come to terms with!!More

Gem in Nerja
Hotel is in a fantastic location. We stayed for a week on half board basis the meals couldn't be faulted very good choice at every meal. Changes for a lunch on one occasion. As was going to go out for dinner the portions were amazing and couldn't make going out to eat . The only area I could find fault with is the pool area. This has a green carpet !! Feels a bit yuck!! Also the beds don't seem to get hosed down . Other. Wise could ask for better location out the doors at the back and you are onto a fab beach area. Beautiful location More
We really enjoyed our experience of the hotel, great room service and excellent food. The food choice was the best we had ever had when travelling abroad. We chose a sea view double room which was lovely, any problems with the room was sorted out very quickly.More
Perfect Family Holiday
This is our second holiday at this hotel and it is always a joy to stay here. Friendly and helpful staff plus the buffet breakfasts are outstanding. Lovely beach and wonderful views. The only thing that has changed from last year is that you can no longer book the sub loungers in advance as the hotel no longer has the beach concession.More
