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.

Lovely stay at this hotel 6th time in nerja first stay at this hotel. Staff really make this hotel what it is nothing is to much trouble. My only negative was the pool area this is not monitored and when we arrived we were told that any sunbeds unoccupied for 90 minutes towels would be removed. This does not happen I arrived at pool which was supposed to open at 9.30 at 9.30 to find most beds already had towels on them. Then on 3 occasions watched people leave these beds after sitting for an hour and not returning until 4 or 5 hours later totally unacceptable. Luckily we spent most days at the beachMore

We recently spent a week at this hotel and, overall, found it very good. The location is stunning, the staff are so welcoming and friendly and the food is good. Breakfast in excellent and although some reviews say the evening buffet isn't too good there was always something nice to eat. People who are visiting for the first time could find the layout of the hotel a little daunting and more information could be given regarding the system for the sunbeds and towels. The sunbeds on the terrace and the beach are looked after by Alfredo who is so helpful and nothing is too much trouble for him. One other member of staff who stands out for her caring attitude is Rita who is very helpful in the dining room. We had a room overlooking the Balcon side where there is always some entertainment, and although it could be quite noisy the patio doors did keep the noise out. Also it is the side which is shaded in the afternoon and it is pleasant to sit on the balcony. Sleep was mostly disturbed by some guests who seem to be unable to close doors quietly, but that is not the fault of the hotel.More
Hotel still wonderful
Just had another week at the Balcones De Europa.Still as good as ever and recommend to anyone....the room we were in looked like it had undergone a referbishment which was of high spec.The new pool and beach attendant Alfredo could not have been more helpful and attentive. All the staff played an excellent part in our second visit to this gem of a hotel.More
