The location of the Balcon de Europa cannot be faulted, and the same goes for the unfailing cheerfulness of the staff. We were made to feel so very welcome and as for the breakfast, well it's amazing I only went home 2lbs heavier and not much more! I defy anyone to confront that banquet and think "Do you know what, there's nothing there I fancy". The staggering array of goodies is amazing and if you breakfast at one of the window tables you can have the luxury of a Bucks Fizz and fry up overlooking the most incredible view of the Med. I could do that every day and never get bored of it.
After the spectacular spread at breakfast I will admit to being rather disappointed with the one occasion we had dinner at the hotel restaurant - a really dated and unimaginative menu not very well executed. With so many excellent restaurants to eat at in Nerja I would say 'go out to dine'. Dinner at Oliva not far away was outstanding.
My room was not all that special and was furiously overheated, but I paid a cheapo rate and the last time I stayed at the Balcon I got a free upgrade so it would be churlish of me to whinge about it. In spite of sweltering the night away the room was immaculate. One tip - if you are gasping for water and fish a bottle out of the mini bar only to find it has a beer bottle top and there is no opener, somewhat bizarrely the bottle opener is attached to the wall in the bathroom. But of course! Silly me....
I have stayed at the Balcon three times, on each occasion only one or two nights, and I would go back in the blink of an eye. The staff are so warm and welcoming I cannot think of anywhere else I would wish to stay when visiting Nerja.
