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.

Another lovely holiday at the Balcon de Europa ;)
I have just come back from a holiday at the Balcon de Europa-(this was our second time at the hotel after staying last year in September) We had a fantastic holiday, I would really recommend this hotel-the situation is perfect. The staff were really polite, friendly and helpful. We are looking forward to a return visit for sure.More

A hotel to make your holiday perfect!
Nerja is such a beautiful resort with everything on your doorstep, especially with this 4* hotel providing excellent service, food and facilities. I would highly recommend staying here and will be returning again next year. The staff are friendly, helpful and happy in their work. We only booked bed and breakfast because Nerja has a wide range of restaurants and bars, but I heard that the evening meals offered a variety of choice. Overall excellent hotel ðMore

Good hotel, be prepared to pay
Nicest hotel in the most beautiful town on the costa del sol. However, not only should you be prepared to pay big city prices in what is quite an affordable part of Europe, be prepared for service charges, and annoying little extras, which is atypical of Andalusia in general. The setting is beautiful, the building itself is outdated (built in 1960s) with pleasant interiors, and the town is lovely. But what you would presume is complementary (sun lounger, table waiting) is not. I will return to Nerja, I will not stay here.More
Beware Jet2holidays and Balcon de Europa
Jet2 were very quick and efficient through the airport, both ways, full marks. The brochure stated "A full programme of entertainment is provided each night with some professional shows". It doesn't say "peak season only" or "from July onwards" or any other qualification.This is a lie! There was no entertainment whatsoever during the whole of our eleven night break. Jet2's brochure is at best misrepresentation and at worst an offence under the trades descriptions act. The staff attending the table were on occasions offhand and on one occasion downright rude, prompting a complaint to the management after which an apology was issued. The food was "acceptable-ish" on most nights but avoid the al fresco buffets as the choice of food is limited and of poor quality. Ask for a lunch alternative the day before. Sunbeds are chargeable on the beach and the hotels concourse at 3.50 euro each. (except the dozen sunbeds on the roof around the plunge pool. Be aware the coach, taxi, minibus will only drop you and your cases 200m away from the hotel entrance due to the pedestrian zone.More

Another fantastic stay!
Travelled back to Nerja this year and stayed in the Balcon De Europa again. It didn't disappoint. We had a really great visit. The location is just brilliant with sea view and a little beach on the ground floor. The pool is small but still lovely. There is an elevator but it is extremely slow - use the service elevator it is faster! The staff are all fantastic and the breakfast room has spectacular views. I really enjoyed the visit and Nerja is such a beautiful place - very Spanish and not spoilt or commercialized.More
