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.

Bali has went downhill

Visited this hotel for the third time and it will be the last.I know this hotel is a 3 star but based on previous stays I have always thought it was very good in the way of food,location and entertainment etc.This time was very different.I went on a all inclusive basis and ate and drank out quite a lot because of poor quality food and the whole atmosphere and treatment of British guests.The food was very poor and I like the fact they used to have a good selection of all inclusive snacks like toasties and burgers etc as sometimes I wouldn't like to do lunch at there specified times and eat later.For some reason they have set up a new room where people help themselves to a selection of food / judging by the cleanliness and hygiene of some of the guests I wouldn't want go near any of that stuff.the entertainment was a shambles and the boys were terrible and spoilt the shows,also the Michael Jackson show is shockingly bad.the weather on the other hand was fab and very hot as usual and the the maids done a fab job of cleaning the room and changing towels etc.the bar staff have a terrible attitude to the point the older barman shouted at me and the barmaid because she gave me a large cocktail instead of small from the all inclusive menu.It was absolutely disgusting and the queuing system was worse than ever-waiters around 20 min for a drink and event longer for My 11 year old.fortunately a new barman joined the team on the last few days who was lovely mannered and a joy to talk to.This hotel has made changes for the worse which a lot of repeat guests I have spoken to aren't happy about it and seems to cater now for mostly Spanish/Italian guests. The alcohol is either fake or watered down and just had no affect to the point we were buying the proper brands to feel like we were having a drink to help us enjoy the shows on a night.spain on a whole I feel has changed-very run down and they are very desperate for money but they have terrible attitudes and lack manners which is a no no for me and makes me never want to visit again.More

Nightmare of a hotel!!!

Where do I start???? Upon arriving to our room we were happy with what we had,room was a bit dated but was clean.looking in the bathroom we found some tiles coming off the walls around the shower and mould.the shower head had a crack in it causing water to go everywhere and there was no button to lift to change the water from a shower to a bath.towel rail was just barely hanging on the wall.on the 3rd night our son was quite sick through the night,we stripped the bed and put the sheets on the balcony until the morning.we went to reception 1st thing the next morning to ask for fresh bedding and the dirty ones to be taken away.10am still no sheets we stayed in the room that day as our son was still poorly,every time we opened the patio it stank from the dirty sheets.we rang down to reception and was advised it would be sorted asap.12pm still nothing it took for my partner to go down to reception quite annoyed to get it sorted which it then was within 5 mins!! Service of drinks was shocking unless you were Spanish,took at least 10 mins of waiting before we got a straw for us was at breakfast one morning when we saw a cockroach crawling across the wall and then quite a big one crawled over my partners foot.needless to say we didn't eat there after that!! Feel like we paid way over the odds for what we got,would not return here or recommend to anyone.More


Holiday Review

Yet another great stay, having stayed at this hotel many times, the hotel is exceptionally clean, all the staff are friendly, very helpful and will go the extra mile to assist you. Staying half board there is a wide range of food at the buffet, and the food is of the highest of quality. We are ourselves OAP The hotel is situated on a steep hill but is manageable, The only criticism is that we feel there should be a chain on the inside of the bedroom doors for security, also a peep hole so as you could identify anyone at the door without actually opening it. Will be returning.More

Very Spanish.

Stayed here on a half board plan last week. To say that this hotel is very 'Spanish' orientated , would be an under statement. Our room on the 4th floor , as requested at time of booking, was perfectly adequate, cleaned daily by a very nice lady, but lacked any basic cooking facilities, not even a kettle or fridge.As I said, we were on a half board basis, but it is still nice to be able to make a cup of tea or store a bottle of water or wine in a fridge. The half board plan includes breakfast and either lunch or dinner any day.We opted for the breakfast and dinner each day, as we were on the beach or touring around, and did not venture back to the hotel during the day. Breakfast included cereals, fruits, breads, juices, and the equivalent of an english breakfast,(sausages, bacon,eggs,beans,toast). The biggest downfall of the breakfast was the lukewarm water for your tea, from a vending m/c, at which you had to queue. The breakfast itself could have been a lot hotter, but seemingly the spanish do not avail of the 'English' cooked breeky, so it does not seem to mattter. Dinner was very 'Spanish' orientated, so therefore was an acquired taste. Lots of chips, very little fresh veg and some unusual meats were provided. Again needed re-heating. Overall, you would not go hungry! Reception and cleaning staff were very nice, but the bar staff did not have very good english and did not seem interested in english speaking customers.More
