We are a 65yr old couple and have just returned from a great holiday at the Hotel Bali in Benelmadena. Food was great loads of choice and well cooked. The salad bar was huge and fresh meat and fish on offer as well as veg and a tapas bar. The room was overlooking one of the pools and with a great sea view. Cleaning was spot on, and done every day. Yes there is a hill from the beach but not too bad, we are 65yrs old and managed no problem. I can't fault this hotel. Also Jet 2 flights... (read more)

Hotel Bali has Good food, and plenty of it, something for everyone. Our second visit January this year so knew what to expect, ideal spot for the Benalmadena coastline and Marina with a wonderful seafront walk right into Torremolinos.

I go to Hotel Bali in Benalmedena every year for a week in December, then back to England in time for Xmas.

Hotel Bali in Benalmadena is a very clean hotel, and I would recommend it to those with children as well as older people! There was a children's club every day of the week! Lots of bars, and there is one called The Bees Knees on the front, which you must visit. The hotel rooms were very clean. This was our third visit to the hotel, and we have already booked again for next year!
It is a fab hotel! There is a big hill in front, but it's well worth it! (read more)

The Hotel Bali rooms were dirty on arrival. The wardrobes were dropping to bits. It was just like a grotty bedsit. The room flooded because of a leaking sink, which was reported to reception, but they didn't want to know, so I had to fix it myself. I told the reps the morning after, but they didn't want to know either. They told me to complain when I got home. The cleaner spilled bleach on some of my sons clothes, so i reported it and filled in a complaint sheet, but the reps said it was... (read more)

I first stayed in the Hotel Bali in Benalmadena when my son was 2 years old. We had a great time, and we only paid £157.00 for half board, which was quite a lot of money 24 years ago. We also oversaw the building of the new hotel at that time. The last holiday we took there, they had building work going on, but you wouldn't have known that, as there was hardly any noise. The staff are all very good, and they all seem stay with the hotel for many years. We are thinking of going back next year... (read more)

The Bali hotel in Benalmadena is the best hotel I have stayed in on the Costa Del Sol, and it is a great resort, even though it was Christmas. If you want to get away for Christmas and don't want to be reminded it is Christmas, then this is a great place to be. The shops are open on Christmas day, and I was sunbathing on Christmas day.

We had a great holiday at the Hotel Bali in Benalmadena, and it was well organised by the reps and hotel staff. Never a miserable face, always smiling. The resort of Benalmedena has plenty to offer from the amazing marina to Paloma Park, which you see with all the animals and birds walking around freely, and it doesn't cost a penny to get in! Local buses run frequently to various locations and are very easy to use and cheap. If you like your home comforts, the resort is full of English bars... (read more)

Hotel Bali is very nice, 2 separate pool areas, staff very helpful, good bar, reasonable entertainment programme. Studios very well appointed, half-board rooms fairly spartan.
Chambermaids did not service the studio all week, but reception apologised with a free bottle of wine and presentation glasses.
Studios would benefit from an oven and a kettle as there are only two electric rings and a coffee maker. (read more)
