“all inclusive virgins!!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

we have just returned from the hotel bali after spending a very pleasant week there. It was our first experience of an all inclusive holiday and i was more than impressed with the quality and variety of the food that was provided. The restaurant staff were extremely pleasant and helpful even when they were very busy.
Our accomodation was very functional and clean. We had requested a seaview room which we had, and although it could sometimes be a little noisey later in the evening, the position of the room on the ground floor more than made up for this - we found it very convenient to every part of the hotel.
The entertainment was a bit of an aquired taste, but we cant knock their enthusiasm.
All in all i wouldnt hesitate to go back to the bali and would recommend it to anyone. The only thing missing was the constant sunshine but i dont think the hotel can be held responsible for that!!

We have just come back from a 5 night break at the Bali. Overall it was good value and we enjoyed it, We were all inclusive and thought the food was very good. As very fussy eaters there was always something we could eat. breakfast was excellent, cereal, cooked, fruit, continental etc etc. buffet style lunch and dinner with a wide variety ( and of course the obligatory chips!!) Snacks in between for those who couldnt wait! And soft drinks, water, wine, beer and spirits from 10am to midnight.
the rooms were basic but fine, spotlessly clean and serviced every day with clean towels as required. we were on the 7th floor and had a view over the town. the lifts were a bit of a trial, very small and overused by those on lower floors - i would imagine it is murder in the busy season!
if you are seeking entertainment there is a full programme day and night - the animation team are friendly and not a nuisance at all. there is a variety from bingo to karaoke to bird and parrot shows, local singers, flamenco - something to suit most people - we didnt go to any of it but the bar area was packed every night with people enjoying it.
the reception staff were very friendly and seemed to be able to sort most things out.
the location was fine - yes it was a bit of a slope to get to the main road but it was not that far and not overly difficult, although i think less mobile people and wheelchairs would find it very awkward. Further up the hill away from the front we were told its a bit of a dodgy area and there were a few muggings there when we were there apparently, so be a bit aware of this although there isnt much to go in that direction for anyway!
Overall we were pleased with our stay although would not like to go when it is very busy as I think it could be easily overwhelmed! i would certainly return for a cheap break out of season without any problems.

We stayed here at the beggining of January. Good hotel no complaints about anything (perhaps the food could do with being a bit hotter). This was our second stay here so can't be bad! Nice location bit of a climb up the hill but we always picked our route so we didn't do the whole hill at once- it is possible. Bus stop at the bottom of the road taxi rank at the top so you could get anywhere you wanted to go very easily. We had a first floor room looking onto the pool and it was a real sun trap spent most afternoons sitting out reading as we did all our walking in the mornings.Staff very pleasant rooms kept spotless all in all we enjoyed ourselves very much and would come again.

Room Tip: If you are there in the winter go for a room looking onto the main pool for the sun to get to you bu...

We stopped at the Bali as a couple from 9th March to the 16th 2013, the location of the hotel is good apart from the hill leading up to it and there is plenty to do during the day. We explored the harbour and surrounding area on foot and thought it was very nice, we also went on the cable cars to the top of the mountain and visited Mijas on the local bus, both were well worth visiting.
We were all inclusive but on arrival were given a self catering studio in Bali 3, I did question this but reception said that they were quite full the weekend we arrived and we were still A/I. The room was large but very worn and dirty and was not cleaned properly all the time we were there.
The food at lunch and dinner was a big let down although breakfast was fine, you could tell this was a poor 3* hotel. The spanish old folk took over the chairs and tables when the entertainment was on all just sitting there without a drink all night, they were very arrogant and very impolite pushing in front of you at meal times. We would not recomend this hotel and will not be stopping there again, although we will visit Benalmadena again as the area was really good.

Just returned from a weekend break to Benalmadena & stayed at Hotel Bali. The good is its location centrally based, now the not so good, its located on a very steep hill which us hard work to climb & descend. The Hotel is a miss match of three buildings, the room we were allocated took about several minutes walk up & down stairs. In general the hotel was clean & of an average standard, a but dated a throw back to the 80's but decent value for money, wouldn't like to spend more than a few days in this hotel

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.
