This was our second visit and everything had improved we had one of the refurbished rooms which was beautiful and although work was still going on in the Hotel disruption was minimised and noise controlled. The Hotel is spotless and the staff are very helpful and friendly, the view from the dining room is fantastic. We shall certainly return in the future.

It was our second visit to the Hotel and whilst the weather left a lot to be desired the Hotel and its location made up for it. Poised right on the edge of the Balcon de Europa itself, the location to the beaches and access to the town of Nerja is just perfect.
The room we had was recently redecorated with refitted bathroom in excellent taste.
The staff were attentive and polite at all times and any problems or assistance requested were given quickly and efficiently. The breakfasts were good and the evening meals, waiter served, were acceptable.
All in all a great Hotel to take break and were booked to return this May.

We have been coming to this Hotel for nearly 20 years and have seen it continually develop over the years. Currently all the bedrooms are being refurbished, the hotel is keeping the noise and disturbance to a minimum for guests. We stayed in a newly refurbished room which has greatly improved the bedrooms & ensuite bathrooms, a credit to the hotel.
All the staff from reception to Housekeeping are always friendly and helpful, all you have to do is ask! We have both travelled and stayed at the Balcon (as this time via Thomsons) but in the past independently on all occasions the hotel provided us with an excellent service.
The evening meals again provided choices each night and being able to further choose from the Buffet area has enhanced the evening meal provision. I would encourage anyone to eat in the El Nautico Restaurant-bar (on the beach) for lunch; you will not come away hungry!
Again a Brilliant holiday thank you to the management and staff at the hotel.

Very nice rooms. Air-con was very poor, unsuitable for high season. Staff unfriendly. Pool very small. One tip, if you need to go onto the private beach book this straight away as the beds go quickly. Lots of activities in the area and very good shopping as you are in the heart of it all.

The hotel is undergoing a full refurbishment of the rooms. Standard rooms are at the back of the hotel and have no view except for a wall about 15 feet away, also there is only a window, no balcony, which makes sence as who would want to sit out there looking at a wall. This is not explained in the broucher. It is well worth paying the extra for a sea view. As the hotel is shaped like a letter L, the rooms on the side that overlook the Balcon only get the sun up untill around 11 30 am, and a side sea view. The food in the restaurant is good, In the evening it is waiter service, and there are 4 choices for each of the three courses, so there is always something to find that you would like. Breakfast is buffett. The choice you have is a cooked english, which we found to be on the cold side, cereal, toast, bread, meats and cheese, and friut and yogurt. The staff are friendly, and very smart, clean, and polite, apparently some have been at the hotel for 20 years. A lot of the people staying there were I would say aged 60 and over and quite a few of them have been returning for many years. The rooms have been done to a high standard, flat screen tv with bbc1, bbc2, itv , itv3 cnn and euro sport. Proper beds, not a thin mattress on slats, a quilted mattress protector, and soft pillows. There were also duvets on the bed, not a blanket, very comfortable. The beds were changed every other day and the towels every day. The bathrooms although a bit on the small side are well appointed with magnifying mirror and hairdryer. This is one of the cleanest hotels that I have stayed in. The hotel overall is a nice place to unwind and relax.

This is a brilliant hotel for travelling with young kids - the lift exits directly onto the beach, and the hotel is in the middle of Nerja - easy days of playing in the sand, plus easy walks for lunch / dinner etc. The night we were there the air con was broken - blew warm air all night, meaning the room ended up stifling hot, but other than that, highly reocmmended.

the Balcon de Europa is in a wonderful situation, built into the rockface, overlooking a small beach, and yet a few yards from the town centre. Nerja is a lovely Spanish town, near to other attractive villages, like Frigiliana, a short bus ride away.
