My wife and I booked this hotel at short notice through teletext. The holiday was two weeks all inclusive. We were given a studio apartment which didn't disappoint. It was spacious very clean and comfortable. The food was excellent and varied and there was a good choice and never boring. The local drinks were as good as you would get back home. Never mind the label try the contents. But what makes the hotel is the staff . Everybody was friendly, helpful and nothing was to much. I would highly recommend a stay. Thanks for a much needed holiday. The room 3503 was in the shade all day but you can't have it all. Ideal situation close to beach ,park and transport . Some comments complain of being on cardiac hill. No problems And were both over 60.

Room Tip: ask for sunny balcony with a sea view block 2

Well this is the first time at the Bali and we found it to be friendly and clean. Cheap break away this time if year, when the sun is out the weather is quite pleasant. Rooms are tidy and beds made daily. The food is not too bad but then again we have tried worse, but breakfast is best for the morning after the night before. Those on a budget I would still recommend half board. Only one negative in the Bali, watch your change, several times the bar staff give you the wrong change, ie change for 10 euro when you give them a 20.00. Any how, plenty of bars locally so not far to walk. Highly recommend Champions Bar, turn left at bottom of cardiac hill and then about 200-300 yards on the left. Asmae (owner) and Olga are very welcoming and friendly. Get out and about, catch a bus from the bottom and go up to Mijas, the view is fantastic and lots of coffee / restaurants / souvenir shops. Will be back to Benalmadena next year.

I spent four nights at this hotel with my wife over the October break 2013. We stayed as all-inclusive guests. It is a large busy hotel in a good location. You have to cross the main road to get to the beach. There are plenty of pedestrian crossings. The hotel is close to the marina and is not far from the main shopping area. The rooms are pleasant with house-keeping every day. There are two pools, one busy and one quiet. Plenty of sun loungers and seating for everyone. The entire hotel is kept lovely and clean. All the are staff very friendly and polite. The food in the restaurant is good as are the snacks. The entertainment hall is large and was too busy for my liking. It is not well designed with many pillars partially blocking the view of the stage, but we did get seats and enjoyed the shows. That said, for such a busy hotel the shows could have been better. There is another entertainment room next to the main hall that seemed to always to be full of dancing Spanish OAP’s. They looked to be having a great time.
I would rate this hotel at 3.5 out of 5. It is a good family hotel and excellent value for money. Hope you have as good an experience as we did and enjoy your holiday.

Stayed at the Bali for the 3rd or 4th time in November this year. Yes there were loads of Spanish OAP's there. They were not a problem, they spend most of their time out on trips, playing cards or dancing in the other room. The rooms are clean and what you would expect at the price we paid £28 a night each all inclusive. Anywhere in Spain this time of the year you can get bitten by midges, and that goes for most of Europe in the Autumn! The only slight gripe I would have is that the buffet could be kept hotter but then I am in the business and a bit picky on that kind of thing. The staff are welcoming and helpful and if you had too you could live off the starter selection. So Clive if you are worried phone the Bacon back I misplaced your number and one of us can reassure you!

Room Tip: There can be pressure on the lifts around meal times so think about lower rooms if you are happy to...
