The chamber maids were extremely friendly,as too were the Reception Staff.We got a preview what the apartments will look like when upgraded to star status,they will be Superb, It was O/K walking down to TheTown,but a taxi was the order of the day,when...

I would agree that the apartment was outdated BUT it was very spacious, clean and tremendous value for money. Suited us perfectly. If you want luxury then this was not the place for you. However, if like us, you want a CLEAN basic apartment at a very low cost, the Balcon de Mar is perfect

Was quite worried about going after reading reviews. The apartment was clean albeit a bit tired looking, although they are going to refurbish this year. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would definitely go again.

Very tired looking,very much needed some painting. Rooms big,although basic,you get what you pay for. We asked for an ocean view,which we got,that was lovely,but to the back of the room,bedroom,was the main road,which was very noisy. Ideal for old town,or a walk to Puerto Calero. We were told that it's going to be turned into a 4 star hotel... More

I have been staying at the Balcon Del Mar for a number of years. I see a lot of negative reviews about this complex, which i do not personally agree with. This is a very dated complex. But on the positive. It has 2 exceptionally quite pools with plenty of sun loungers. Sea views from every apartment. Sun loungers in... More

The rooms where nice and well kept, the pools where fantastic at decent sizes and the pool bar was really nice. However the overall experience was quite dull an quiet, not much goes on around the hotel or in it. However people seeking a nice relaxing, quiet break away, this could be the hotel for you.
