“Excellent Family Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

Went to this hotel in July with 2 children aged 9 and 12. We had booked half-board but upgraded to all-inclusive on arrival as it was such a great deal. I was very glad we had as the kids could eat and drink whenever they liked. We have been to many all-inclusive hotels and this has been the best. I would rate this hotel a 4 star at least. I must thank the barman Juan Martin for being so personable and fun. The entertainment was the best we have ever come across, the nightly shows went way beyond our expectations. Dan, Murray,Tina, Precious and the rest of the team were fantactic. We would definately go back to this hotel and anyone that finds fault are just too hard to please.

Room Tip: The market in Fuengirola is worth a train trip.

A lovely clean hotel, the room we got overlooked the pool with a sea view.
Surprisingly there were ample sun loungers & parasols and the expected morning towel reserving wasn't required.
The entertainment on an evening was of a good standard.
Children's entertainment jumped from little ones to adults teens need to make friends or go with one to keep themselves entertained.
Bar prices are not ridiculous if you opt for half board as we did. We certainly didn't spend the difference between half board & all inc prices.
There were no stag or hen parties in residence just families.
The dining room was immaculate the food was variable only 2 nights out of the seven did I have to take my son elsewhere to eat (I guess that fantastic looking at it like that) I can always find something (willing to try anything).
There is a short steep hill to where it levels off to the main road where bars shops etc start cross over the road down some steps to the beautiful sea front .. A 10 /15m stroll will take you to the marina & shopping arcade.
We took an hours boat ride and saw the dolphins for €10 each and got a drink on board.
I would return again but would like reassurance I was in Bali 2 there are 3

Having previously read other contributors reports on this hotel , I was open minded. I was surprised by the industry of the staff at this hotel, in every area they were courteous hard working and diligent. In particular the room maids, bar and restaurant staff. Holiday makers like myself on all inclusive tariff were very demanding but the staff were unfazed. The other criticism aimed at hotel is that it was on a killer hill, I looked upon the hill as daily exercise and would advise others to do same. A very good location, great staff food and drink. If I was to nitpick it would be the decor is a little dated.

Room Tip: Lower floor, I was on 2nd excellent for pools, restaurant and main bar.

Our first All Inclusive. The food was good with lots of variety. The staff were great all the entertainment staff were fab especially Marek and Lorenz. All the staff worked hard to ensure everyone's happiness including domestic staff, bar staff and restaurant staff. The kids had a fantastic time. Hotel clean but could probably do with a little bit of tlc in parts, but not shabby by any means. Good location for beach, bars, shops and restaurants. Could do with a list of All Inclusive drinks and snacks being displayed. But a great holiday Thank You

Firstly got to mention the entertainment team, they work flat out from morning til night and always full of energy taking time out to speak to guests, waiters were all top banana as was the food in all inclusive, meat cooked lovely, for fussy kids there is a kids section in dining area, all inclusive crisps are the bees knees, location of this hotel was great, central to everywhere. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to get away with the family, ideal for couples too due to location, couldn't think of anything negative to say at all. Rooms cleaned daily, clean towels each day too and rooms spacious enough for family of 4.

Room Tip: Request sea view room if possible

stayed here 5th July 2014
Had a very relaxing week and found the hotel and staff very friendly. The food selection in the dining room was spot on, something for everyone. The entertainment team at the Bali was fantastic. the shows they staged every night were very professionally choreographed and the themes were great. well done to all.
The pool areas were very clean and there were ample sunbeds for everyone. The entertainment staff came round the pool every day to get people involved in various activities.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and will be returning asap.
The rooms were very clean and sea view as requested, the only negative i can come up with is the lack of a kettle and fridge in the rooms.
The all inclusive option at this hotel is a must, the selection of local beers wines and spirits is of good quality also plenty of branded soft drinks
A brilliant hotel for the money
