Nice spot for a wedding. Wedding dinner was outside which was very picturesque. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Had a great time at this lovely hotel. The setting, scenery and location are amazing. Went there with a group of ladies and never stopped laughing. The food was really good and the happy hour was wonderful for cocktails. We were well looked after by all the staff. Thankyou Balcon de Europa.

It goes on an in for ever. Been four times at different times of the day. Each time a different experience and somewhere new to see. Highly recommend a visit. Even if just for a drink and watch the world go by.

Tourists are drawn to the Balcon de Europa but I fail to see why there is so much hype over a view. Yes it has a number of over prices coffee bars and a pretty church but not as outstanding as one is lead to believe.

No visit to the centre of Nerja is complete without a stroll down the Balcon. It is a wonderful place and offers fantastic views out across the sea and back up onto the mountains. No matter how many times you go there you always see something new and events happening around you. It is a great photographic opportunity and you... More

Stunning views day and night. Laze around listening to a mariachi or have a beer/coffee in marble set square. The med looks beautiful from here. Name is not a lie

We visit or go through here a couple of times a week, and there is no better place to sit and chill with a coffee/ wine or a snack and do a bit of people watching. Most of the fiestas either start or finish here and are usually very colourful, noisy and great fun to see. Also, there are often... More

The Balcon de Europa is worth a visit - the views are simply lovely and it's a great place to 'people watch.' There are places to sit and enjoy an ice cream, plenty of cafes and restaurants in close proximity, and it's a nice place to stroll around to see some great views of the ocean and surrounding beaches and...
