“Always Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2011

We have been going here since the 70's. It has always been very friendly, clean and relaxing. The owners are friendly and very accomadating. This is the place everyone should try to stay at for a quiet, relaxed vacation at the beach.

I traveled to Bali Hai with my girlfriend and her family. It was everything that I expected. It was super clean and quiet, and the beach was pristine. The room was very spacious. I had a great time and would definitely return.

This is a motel on a quite beach, you can watch the sun set, there weren't any amenites that I saw, most people seemed to have their own chairs and unberellas and that's the advantage here, its very quiet and relaxing. Some of the rooms are standard motel rooms, others have kitchens and there are deals on offer for long term stays. The only disavantage is that there;s not much else than hotel and houses on the road, you have to drive to shops and resturants but there's a free trolley bus paid for by local businesses that will take you to shops and resturants, useful if you want to have a drink! The rooms are a bit dated decor wise (that's just my opinion) but very clean and pleasant. There's also a heated pool in case you get fed up of the beach!

Recently spent 1 week at this low-key, but completely enjoyable sea-side resort. Accommodations are dated, but fresh and clean, food prep items and utensils (for those so inclined) are more than adequate, and the linens/towel exchange program works smoothly.
The location is superb, on a very nice stretch of beach; an easy walk to breakfast at Jinny and Jane E's or to dinner at several locations.
Dave, owner-manager, is laid-back but there when you need him; he was very helpful in recommending local food and refreshment choices.

Just got back from a wonderful 8 night stay at the Bali Hai Beach Resort, already planning next years trip !! We had a great time, and couldn't get over the beautiful landscaping and how well we were treated by the staff (Dave & Al). Everyone we met said they had been coming there for years. Highly recommend this laid back family owned beach resort , we'll definitely be back!

This is a very laid back place. We met people from all over the world who told us they had been coming there for years. Our beachfront on the 1st floor was perfect for my son, who is 13 months old. Sunsets every night! The kitchen was handy. Room came with utensils and cooking gear, plus LOTS of storage space. We never used the dining table inside, preferring to sit on the long patio and chat to our neighbors. The heated pool was a nice way to relax at the end of a long day of doing nothing. Gorgeous private beach and gardens area. Just keep in mind if you are in a 1st floor room like ours, the patio is one long patio stretching down the whole side. If you want privacy, take the 2nd floor. Also, there is no maid to pick up after you, but there are vacuums available and a grocery store up the road for supplies. It suited us just fine. We will be returning.

BestResort, Owner/Manager at Bali Hai Beach Resort, responded to this review, March 27, 2010
Completely unfounded. Used this excuse break her lease for a "cheaper" facility. Family owned & operated for forty years and never had a claim against the cleanliness of our accommodations I believe speaks for itself. Thank you for allowing us to respond.
