“Lovely View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

We stayed here for a week in May 2013. Lovely hotel with an old fashioned air. Room was very comfortable and clean. Staff very helpful and polite. The choice at breakfast buffet was amazing. Three course served dinner was good and varied. The jacuzzi by the swimming pool had an amazing view and as the weather was a bit chilly, lovely to sit in. The sea and outdoor pool were too cold. Go for a level 8 or 9 room with a sea view and balcony. Lovely to wake up to the sound of the sea lapping in. Room service was a bit late some days. Toiletries replenished every day which would have been good to know beforehand. Good central position to explore the town and always plenty happening on the Balcon De Europa. We enjoyed making friends with the local cats that were very well fed and friendly. They seemed to be happy in the same position each day.

Fabulous location just next to the Balcon De Europa. Semi private beach that is accessed directly from the hotel.
Reception, 6th floor, leads on to the Balcon and town centre.
Rooms are good. Clean, modern and, in our case, with a balcony overlooking the beach.
However, the balcony also overlooks the area used for wedding receptions. We had three in seven nights.
Loud music until 11'30 . Revellers until midnight or later.
Food choice was good, particularly breakfast, but the quality was at best fair.
We would use again but only on a B& B basis. There are so many restaurants in Nerja that there is so much to explore.

I stayed here in May for a friends wedding. The rooms in the hotel were spotless. The ensuite was perfect . every thing about the room was clean. The breakfast was lovely and the setting was just perfection. We had the wedding Dinner on the Beach.. It was out of this world.. The Staff were so Help full.. There were only two slight draw backs. One is there is no parking for a car and two the pool is very small but these would not stop me of staying there Again.

This hotel is really great , the staff are very attentive and helpful. The happy hour between 6 & 7 pm is nice way to pass the time before your meal at 7 30 pm . Mealtimes are breakfast 7 30 am to 10 30 am Eve meal 7 30 pm to 10 30 pm . Food is good and varied . We had a junior suite the views of the beach and sea are lovely . I would say though that the roof of the balcony obscures the sun unless you are up against the ,rail , that said the hotel is on the beach so easy to go down and sunbathe on a lounger on the beach . Would not hesitate to recommend

Having read lots of reviews on room noise and location, I can only say that 704 & 705 are good choices. They have a side view of the ocean and are above the noise of the restaurant below. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were nice and the space was ample. We did not eat dinner or lunch in the restaurant but did experience the breakfast. B&B is definitely the way to go considering comments from others. The breakfast was good (not great) a nice plus was the Champagne offering and the broad buffet choices.

From our many walks along The Balcon I must say that there are not any alternatives that I would consider when visiting Nerja.

On the topic of parking... Do not use your GPS once you get to Nerja! The parking garage they use is a bit difficult to find. Call them and ask for detailed directions.

Just back from a week in Nerja staying at The Balcon de Europa Hotel. The hotel provides everything you would expect for the grade and the price. Food is very good, staff are friendly and helpful and the resort is exactly what you would expect in a Spanish resort frequented by the locals. In all honesty we were very pleased with our room for the first four days but there was one thing we didn't realise and that was that the Irish Bar across the alley is only open from Thursday to Saturday and it makes quite a racket.

I booked a 'Sea View Room with Balcony' in January and arrived to be given a first floor room with a balcony from which you could touch bodies laying in lounge chairs at the pool, over which there was a sea view. When I told the front desk that I wanted a different room, Iwas told that I had to wait 45 minutes until the manager arrived. The manager insisted that we has a sea view (which was ridiculous) and told us that the hotel was booked and I had the choice of a non-view room for cheaper or a small suite for more money. Not wanting to ruin our trip, we chose the upgrade. We later saw that most of the hotel was taken over by a wedding and that the wedding dinner was by the pool and there was a huge amplifier for the music only a couple feet from our original room! This hotel overbooked the sea view balcony rooms and gave us the worst, perhaps because I booked on Expedia? Management should have comped the upgrade because of their error. This was a special trip for us and the experience was disappointing.
