Bali Hotel & Studios

With shops, bars and restaurants close by and a sandy beach just minutes away, the Bali Hotel and Studios has one of the best settings in Benalmadena.

The Bali Hotel & Studios is set on a steep hill overlooking the Benalmadena seafront. Sandy Malapesquera Beach is a five-minute walk down the hill, and there are bars and restaurants right on the doorstep.

Accommodation here is split between bedrooms and more contemporary studios. There’s a handful of pools, plus plenty of sunbathing space, as well as a restaurant that deals in around-the-world buffet spreads.

Weekend Break

Having read the reviews prior to booking our trip for just two nights, we were really disapointed on the first night to have to complain to reception about a group of lads having a party on the balcony at 1am. To be fair, obviously somebody went to the room and all was quiet for an hour just!! Then we had the shouting running up and down the hallways and at 4am we were again awoken by Liam hammering on my door trying to get in (wrong room!!). The second night proved just as bad with a kebab scattered up the badly worn hall carpet overnight and the same group of lads shouting till they eventually went to bed qat 730am!!!! This must have affected around two dozen rooms, so why is it allowed to continue?? Shame because breakfast was superb, staff lovely, barman fantastic, but came back shattered!!More

Hotel Bali

Arrived here on the 7 th April Easter school holidays, check in was quick and friendly , arrived about half hour after all inclusive ended but manager gave us vouchers if we wanted a drink at bar , our room was a studio was a fab size was well pleased as had lots of space for everything , the end we were in was a bit dated kind of 70s style needs a wee make over but was spotlessly clean ,we were her for 12 nights think our room was cleaned about 7 times , maybe because we at the very end of the hotel . Weather was terrible when we were here but not hotels fault that's what we go abroad for sunshine think we got around 4 days out the 12 😥.food was really good for all inclusive and the drink selection was great also , entertainment was good if you had kids under 10 , but the real entertainment apparently doesn't start till end of April . Overall had a good time here in Benalmadena just wish we had seen some more mr sunshine .More

Good apartments

Stayed here a number of times. Good sized Studio apartments have most things you need kettle toaster and hob. TV has some English Channels BBC1 Filmfour. It did have ITV previously but that seems to have disappeared. Studio apartments overlook pool. Good entertainments package for kids. Carpet in halls needs to be replaced old and dirty but rooms are kept clean. Towels changed daily. Good central location close to Marina.More

Jennifer B,

Fantastic value

We visited med playa for our 31st wedding anniversary and we weren't dissapointed . We had asked for a sea view and that was already sorted on arrival (room 610) the admin team on the desk were very friendly and helpful. The room was cleaned everyday and fresh towels provided by very friendly girls .we paid for half board but only used the Evening meal once but the menu was very wellthought out and a huge choice there was so many fantastic restaurants close by we used those as the weather was superb.breakfast we did use everyday as the choice was immense don't think there was anything you couldn't find from cereals to a full English . Would we visit again most definitely super location great value very friendly staff could not ask for a more pleasant stay Thank you from both of usMore

First visit to hotel bali and benalmadena

We returned home today after spending 9 nights on a half board basis. We don't normally do half board but this was very good value for money and in our opinion money well spent . The hotel is clean and well presented with friendly and helpful staff in all areas and deserves it's 3 stars. We were allocated a room in bali 1 Unfortunately we were next to the lift and this was quite noisy especially early morning (breakfast time ) we asked for another room and were given a choice of another in bali 1 or in bali 2. We took bali 2 as the room was bigger and overlooked the pool with a seaview. We were on 7 th floor but this wasn't a problem for us as you got great views and there are 2 lifts Food in the restaurant was varied with something for all tastes with a good selection at breakfast and evening meal. The pool area in the bali 2 was large and bright with plenty of beds and parasols. It was a relaxed atmosphere with all different nationalities a pool bar and a separate pool for children. Bali 1 pool was around the same size but the pool terrace wasn't as spacious there was a pool bar and plenty of beds and parasols. Entertainment every night with quizzes shows and bingo. Yes the hotel is on a steepish slope but it's only about 50 metres up. It's around 5 mins walk to beach turn right out of hotel then down slope across a main road there are steps down to the beachfront but if you can't do the steps you can turn right at the bottom of the slope across the pedestrian crossing and walk about another 50 metres there is a slope that leads you to the promenade. If you come out of the hotel and turn left go up the hill and past the tabacas shop get to the panda chinese restaurant and follow the road to the left you come to lots of bars and restaurants on bonanza square. There are also other bars on the same road but on the right of bonanza square. Malarkeys at the bottom of the slope was a good night different acts on every night. We ate at a few places there are lots of lovely spanish restaurants on the beachfront. We also ate at the drunken sailor with hosts dave and rose who do a great Sunday roast and next door in the panorama bar run by amber and Ivan had lovely tapas overlooking the beach sat in the sun. All in all a lovely relaxing holiday in a good hotel and to top it all off the weather was glorious xMore
