“march 2013”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We went 12th tp 19th March having last attended the hotel in September 2005. The hotel has very good food with excelent rooms that were spacious and very well cleaned. The hotel entertainment was fair but the hotel is now getting dated and needs some t l c. The only issues we found were that the locks on the public toilets were all broken, which did cause some embarrassment for both concerned and also the sunny view cafe was flooded and closed, but we would definately go again. The staff at the hotel were very good, helpful and approachable.
We went half board and found the food excellent and the nearby cafes around the 'ole' section were the best for value and quality. With a large park nearby and marina close by the hotel is well situated.

Room Tip: rooms with a sea view on the second floor onwards offer the quietest and best views.

On behalf of myself and 26 people in my party which stayed at The Hotel Bali from 14/3/2013 to 18/3/2013 I would like to thank you very much for our recent stay,from the greeting at reception to the bar staff dinning area staff and all other staff and also the nightly entertainment was 1st class, I would highly recommend this Hotel to anyone who is not only looking for a great deal but for its location and most of all the very high standards that this hotel has. I can say to you that everyone had a very enjoyable time and very much so looking forward to returning back soon.

Room Tip: ground floor for convenience

My Husband and I stayed at The Bali in Feb for 1 week, we were self catering. The room was quite large and comfortable, appliances were their for all your needs and it was spotless. Staff were really nice and polite. The Bali is situated uphill so if you have problems walking look into this as it could spoil your Holiday if you dont know about it. All in all a very pleasent stay and I have recommended this Hotel to my friends.

Reception staff were friendly and efficient. Cooked breakfast was poor quality - fatty bacon, rubbery eggs, dreadful tea and coffee and vile tasting concentrate fruit drinks. Rooms were clean but a bit cramped. Good view over the marina and sea shore with the mountains in the distance. However, this hotel has seen better days.
