“Not bad for the price we paid!”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

Just returned from 1 week stay at this hotel. Myself, husband and 13 year old daughter. We stayed here about 8/9 years ago, hotel hasn't changed much.

We went half baord, and for the price we paid you can not fault the accommodation or food! Food was always hot and plenty to choose from, room size was disappointing, not much room to swing a cat, let alone the three of us! you had to negoitate around the room and only one person could get past the bottom of the bed, not much room to put cloths away either! Satellite tv was only in spanish! Rooms cleaned every day and kept spotless!

Sunbeds are the most uncomfortable i have been on in a long while, take a lilo with you, people had these on the sunbeds with towels over the top (you couldn't use inflatables in the pools, this didn't go down well with some holiday makers, but it did make for a more enjoyable swim!)

This hotel is not suitable for the infirm or anybody who is not fit! The hill up from the main road is called cardiac hill for only one reason!

If you want cheap beer and home cooked food, with real chips, try Fagins Bar half way down the hill san miguel only 1euro a pint!!

Returned from a ten night stay at the Bali Hotel in Benalmadena with the family ( wife and two children aged nine and twelve ) and friends.
The hotel is situated midway up a very steep hill ( known locally as Cardiac Hill ) so itsn't best suited for the infirm or unfit.
At the bottom of the hill is a dual carriageway with some shops and local bars ( avoid would be our tip as they're very tired and run down, but cheap ) and across the road there are various access points to the beach and promenade ( well worth a visit - nice beach and a decent array of shops, bars and restaurants ).
The hotel is split into three buildings which can be confusing and the lifts are small and slow.
We stayed in Bali 3 in a recently renovated studio - the dcor was fine, the studio consisted of a small kitchenette and eating area, plus bed and a convertible sofa bed. All were fine.
The bathroom was a little dated but more than adequate. The room pverlooked the second pool which is closed at 7pm so there is no noise.
There are two pool areas and to be honest neither were very impressive - my children complained of the pools being a tad dirty ( there was debris at the bottom of both ) and the surrounding pool areas look very well worn.
In fact the only complaint would be that the cleaning service in the hotel is spoaradic - we went three days with no clean towels before asking for replacements and bedding is changed once per week.
We rarely saw any bar staff clearning outside tables and that's part of the reason for the unkempt feel to the pool areas.
The restaurant was best avoided unless you like schoold dinner type setting and large trays of stewy food - there's plenty of choice locally and it's cheap. The bar could get extremely busy and the staff ( who were excellent ) can be run off their feet trying to serve both fully inclusive and pay as you go customers.
Overall, the Bali is what you pay for it - it's not a budget hotel, but not The Savoy or The Ritz either.

Room Tip: Go for the studios in Bali 3 - worth the little bit extra.

This is the 3rd year in a row we have holidayed at the Bali. We revisited because everything about the holiday was of a good standard. However this year not so good.
The pros. Very good entertainment team who work hard and produce excellant shows. All bar staff work very hard and most are friendly. Good facilities around hotel with 2 pools and child pool. Rooms and corridors still in need of update but are ok.
Cons. Restaurant and food. Staff not so friendly but look under pressure. Food was definately not so good as previous year. Most of it was cold and lots of stews and rice, certainly not very interesting, too repetative and bland. All bread or rolls were hard and the salads not so nice, it seemed like they had bought in lower grade food. Most fruit was either sour or hard. Although the rooms are no smoking there was a distinct smell of weed in the corridor! The rooms were cleaned each day but the staff didnt seem concerned about the smell.

A very good hotel especially for the money.

One of the best AI hotels we have been to.-

Good comfortable rooms.
Good food, something for everyone, if not then you are very fussy!
No sunbed wars - best bit about this holiday for us, there is plenty of beds and grounds, some people may book their beds early in the morning with their towels, mainly to get a particular spot! Strange!
Staff are friendly and work hard.
Entertainment team works very hard and I did not get the opportubity to say goodbye to Aroa - so if you are reading this BYE and take care,
My granddaughter loved the kids club and the staff.
Had the holiday blues when we got back and wish we had the money to go back this year, maybe next year or soon.
I have MS and did not find cardiac hill too much of a problem.
Well thanks everyone for a great holiday and hopefully see you soon!

We stayed in Self catering apartments. Very clean and spacious. Very glad we did not go all inclusive as the only night we did try the food it was, as other reviews state awful, cold and rock hard bread rolls. Entertainment staff brilliant my 5yr old enjoyed shows and the mini disco. They really do make kids feel welcome. Plenty of bars and restaurants nearby - hill not that bad and weather lovely. Only annoying thing was the people trying to sell u stuff all the time when out in bars. Excellent holiday would recommend Bali.
