This was my second time to Benalmadena, and I will be returning again! Bali Hotel and Studios was a lot more than what we were expecting with evening entertainment, friendly and welcoming staff, day time activities, and spotless rooms! We had everything we needed to cook our own food and the rooms were large and spacious. We thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the water polo and evening entertainment. We did have one problem with our safe but the staff were more than helpful and arranged an alternative arrangement for our valuables. On our last day we were even allowed to leave our baggage in a secure area as our flight wasn't til the evening and we didn't want late checkout. We didn't go all inclusive but wish we did, we like what was on offer and ended up buying meals there anyway. The views from our balcony were outstanding especially with the sea. The location of this hotel was perfect for us (4 Girls) we liked to visit the local bars which was minutes up the road and we went to the marina a lot which was literally down the steps. The best thing for us was having the beach a minutes walk away! The bus stop is even at the bottom of the hill making it easy to go to other towns and attractions. There's two shops literally opposite the hotel which allowed us to get what we needed and we walked to Mercadona which was about 15 minutes away but got a taxi back for only 5 euros for all 4 of us. The hill didn't cause any problems for us even when it was hotter it took about 30 seconds to get down and up and we were even in heels ourselves. We will defiantly be staying here again and have already reccomended it to our friends and family. We were actually rather upset leaving!

Room Tip: Studio rooms were large and had great views!

This hotel is three star its basic clean with helpful staff. The pool area is in need of a good scrub. The food is good and always hot. a good selection of cold food and fruit. You do get what you pay for. The night life is ok for the time of year. We found some great entertainment when we went further up towards bonanza square. And there is a lovely park not far from the hotel .Also the Marina is just down hill if you want some where nice to eat.
I would not reccomend the bars on the beach as they are double the price a coffee brandy cost 9 euros there and in Bonaza Square the same coffee brandy can be bought for 4 euros

Nothing wrong with hotel for price paid, would certainly recommend it if you like Benalmadena however location wasn't for me. As for cardiac Hill if this causes you a problem then clearly you are too fat and unfit and should do something about it! Worst case scenario there is a pool and a bar in hotel.... Obviously for mature holiday makers then you may want to think twice about this place due to hill.

Good location for nightlife, rooms absolutely fine, hotel nice and clean.

Friendly staff, pools ok, could do with a bit of a jet wash/spruce up around the pool/garden area

Food -shockingly bad :-0) we lived on toasted sandwiches but that was fine for us.

For the money a good value hotel

The hotel stands at the top of 'cardiac hill' directly from the sea. The hotel itself is a little dated and the decor in the rooms is 'tired' but, our room was quite spacious with a really sunny balcony and wonderful view of the sea. We were in the hotel over Christmas and New Year. The food was really good and nutritous. Plenty of fresh fruit. Typically a buffet, but the hot food was plentiful and really hot. The cold food was supremely fresh and served at a perfect temperature.
It was strange to have to go to an empty table and having to collect our own cutlery,napkins, glasses, wine and water, but once used to the hotels methods everything worked out really well.
Staff were friendly and helpful, spoke many different languages. Overall we had a wonderful experince at the Bali and feel this is really a 3 star hotel trying very hard to earn a 4! One down fall, new years eve we were placed on a table with two perfect strangers - it worked out reasonably well for us as we have a grasp of the Spanish language - but could be quite a problem for some people so we have to knock off points for this!!
