“Beautiful Balcon”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

A beautiful setting in the most beautiful mountain town of Competa. Fabulous terrace. Very large bedroom with fantastic mountain and sea views. A typical Spanish hotel,but very comfortable with everything I needed provided. Pepe the owner is charming. The two receptionists extremely pleasant and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed three nights in the Balcon and our only regret was that we had to leave. We would definitely return and definitely recommend.

We stayed for 6 nights in one of the self-catering bungalows (although breakfast in the main hotel building was included). Overall we had a great time both at the hotel and in Competa. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful, the place was always extremely clean and the bungalow offered everything we needed. We used the tennis courts and the hotel kindly lent us racquets and balls without charge. The views are fantastic and Competa is a really nice place to stay in. My only minor gripe would be that the wi-fi connection in the bungalow was extremely slow and unstable, and the TV was very small - but then again Competa is a place you'd come to in order to escape from technology and make the most of the natural beauty on offer !.

Having eaten at this restaurant twice before a couple of years ago we made a special journey up into the lovely village of Competa. The hotel has a lovely sunny terrace with beautiful views over to the coast in the distance, however being January this was not open. The menu del dia was not available so we chose chicken curry and spicy pork from the main menu around 8-9 euro. What a disappointment, the quality of the meal was very poor and the pork had to be sent back as it was luke warm(a bit worrying). Also 50c each for a bit of dry bread with nothing to put on it was bit of a cheek as other restaurants give various very tasty nibbles 'on the house'. A real let down after the lovely meals that we had on the previous occasions.

As part of the Rambler's Christmas group we had a great stay. The proprietor was always full of joviality and his staff were friendly and helpful. Good sized bedrooms. Wide corridors and open staircase. Fantastic view from the bedroom balcony with sunsets to die for. The food from the menu was lovely (try the scrambled eggs with prawns and asparagus) and the set menu was good value. Spotlessly clean and just the right mix of locals and holiday makers. A proper Spanish 3 star hotel.

I have marked down the room ratiing because the towels were ineffective. I have the feeling that they were quick drying. I have marked down the sleep quality because the single bed was uncomfortable but the double bed was comfortable.

The family owners were so friendly that it wouldn't matter if you were visiting with friends or solo. I wish I was there now. Fantastic weather - cold at night with clear, warm skies during the day.

Room Tip: Ensure that you room does not face the road. (I think that there are 4 of these in the hotel.) Roo...

The Balcon de Competa enjoys a fabulous location with stunning views from rooms and terrace in the pretty village of Competa. We had a great Christmas and New Year's break there with a group of Ramblers. The hotel staff could not have been more accommodating and friendly; really going out of their way to give us a great holiday. Our room was spacious with good hanging space and a full bathroom. The views from our private balcony were simply amazing. The standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel was exceptional. If you enjoy walking this is a great centre as a base for your holiday.

Room Tip: Try room 206 for its views although all south facing rooms enjoy that view.

Good hotel with friendly and helpful staff and good standard of cleanliness as was the town itself. Breakfast was buffet style and was good. Room had balcony, bath/shower facility, telephone, small TV, hairdryer and the decor was fine. There are various walks around the area three of which can be started from the Hotel entrance, Ruta de la Acequia 7.5km, Ruta Gaviarra 10.5km and Ruta Gavilan 16km. There is also a nice short walk from the hotel to the neighbouring town of Canillas de Albaida of about 2.5km, leave the hotel and turn left then at the end of the road turn right where you will find a house with a dirt track to the left. Walk along this track until you hit the road, walk along this road (short distance) until you come up to a narrow path on the left of the road (there was a small pile of rocks next to it) which takes you through an orchard and to the town of Canillas.

Frigiliana is the Andalucian "white village" that the tourist books recommend but the village of Competa is a well guarded Andalucian secret. Balcon de Competa is a hotel where every room has a view, looking over the valley below as far as the Mediterranian Sea. Excellent rooms with balconies, large grounds including a swimming pool, friendly staff, and a full breakfast included in the price.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view and face south.
