Pleasantly surprised and terrific value for money

The hotel itself is a very typical 3* Spanish hotel, big, bustling and concrete block but it does what it says on the tin and the best thing was probably the staff. From the moment we checked in with Pedro we found all of the staff very pleasant and helpful. Food was very nice and plentiful, drinks were good quality and the bar was open until midnight. Our room was a studio which was a superior one yet we didn't pay more for it? very modern and spacious and everything was kept spotlessly clean. Free wifi in the reception/lounge area, a little intermittent but generally good, ask for the password. It's definitely not the prettiest place I've been to, the pool area is bog standard and personally I do not like Benalmadena (I went with a group who wanted to go there) but if you want to be in this resort the Bali offers incredible value for money. No complaints here.More

mervyn d,

great staff and nice hotel

I booked this hotel as i Iive in Benalmadena and had a couple of friends over to visit. It was nice and cheap and offered half board for the cheap price. We were greeted by very friendly reception staff and the room was clean. The food was also good and staff in general really friendly. I would certainly book again.More

Unexpectedly good

We booked the Hotel Ball at the last minute with Easyjet Holidays. We were hoping all would be well but had wondered about catering as the week before we travelled a review was posted saying the food was terrible. It is not. If you only eat haute cuisine or are fussy and will only buy heinz baked beans or M&S sausages this hotel is not for you. However if you are "normal" you will love it. Meals are varied good quality and accompanied by a good salad bar and tasty deserts. The hotel is at on a hill but for average fitness it is not a problem. The location is great with the most wonderful marina and shopping centre near by. Bus trips are easy with a bus pass that can be purchased from a Tabac shop near by. Good value clean and lovely staff... Go for it! More
