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.

Nice hotel

nice hotel, food was good, everything was ok just bit annoying that even the night time it seemed to be all about entertaining the kids & not much for the adults.....single room was a bit small but the balcony was awful with a big concrete pillow right in the middle of your view.... the walk down to the beach was fine but coming back up that hill was horribleMore

Adult Family Holiday

Just returned from 7 days all inclusive at the Hotel Bali..... 8 adults aged 25-57... We are not difficult to please but how disappointed I feel about this holiday means I will never return there again......firstly the good points.... The hotel is one of the cleanest I have stayed in and when we had an issue of our room smelling of stale cigarettes this was dealt with by immediately offering us an alternative room and when I asked to stay in our room as view was great the Hotel Services rectified the problem by changing bed linen etc... Although we knew this was a family hotel we presumed, wrongly, that there would not be too many kiddies as in british term time... How wrong ...it must of been a main spanish week for hols.... There were 80% spanish families there.. So very noisy .Not the hotels fault but worth noting if thinking of going there just be aware... Entertainment was not the best although the team were pleasant and tried hard... Food was above average but the majority of restaurant staff were rude... We were 8 adults holidaying together but the tables of 8 were not roomy so 1 night we ate early and pulled a table for 2 towards our table to make a little room... There was no one else anywhere near us eating.. The waiter ran over shouting no.. I explained there was no elbow room he just shrugged so my daughter and her hubby sat separate on table for 2, we were then told the table was for 8 not 6 so in future we could only sit there as an 8... We are adults who paid £1,300 per couple so this was not cheap to be treated like children.... The bar staff were on the whole rude and only 2 or 3 were pleasant... Unless you were Spanish and then no matter how long you waited the Spanish had preferential treatment... We paid A/I but hot snacks such as pizza, chips, burgers at the pool bar had to be paid for.. Snacks were available in a small room where bread crisps, dried sandwiches, warmed up hot dogs, fruit etc was made available.. Not at all like any other A/I I have stayed in....the whole hotel is dated and needs a refurb.. I felt like i was in a 1990's timewarp, on the whole if only 1 or 2 of the listed issues had occurred the experience would not have been so negative but all together it made for a very depressing hotel.... Luckily we were in a group of 8.and made the best of the holiday... Had my husband and I just been the 2 of us I dread to think what we would have done....but I still adore the costa Del Sol :-)More

A normal hotel to stay at

Me and my family stayed at this hotel. We arrived very late in the night, but they had food waiting for us in the diner/canteen, which was very sweet of them. When we went to our rooms, we had a pleasant surprise: the rooms were by the end of the hallway, and with a very nice view of the sea and one of the swimming pools. The staff at the reception was not always helpful, though. Every time we asked about something, they would answer "Yes, I think this is possible/it is there/etc, but personally, I am not sure" There is a slowpoke free wifi connection at the reception (everyone gets a personal user code), but you could buy premium wifi connection to your room, but only one device can be connected simultaneuosly using the user code you'll get when buying prem.wifi. The staff in the diner/canteen was really energetic. They were really enthusiastic in cleaning the tables, they were also really polite to people. Some were a bit too aggressively enthusiastic. The overall cleansiness was actually really okay. Everything was really neat BUT the food was just sooo bad. We are from a very different foodculture, so maybe it was only us, because we saw everyone elses tables full of food, and they were eating with a "oh this is delicious" impression on their face. But it was a challenge to even drink up the morning coffee. There were a few foods, though, that were not that bad. The beach was close, but you had to climb the cardio hill every time coming back from the beach. That might be challenging for older people. Also, the Puerto Marina is really close, the bus stops are also really near. Overall we were satisfied with the hotel. I personally would absolutely recommend it for people on a budget, because the value is very good :) Kind regards.More

Eneli T,

Good all round hotel.

I have just spent an enjoyable holiday at hotel Bali. Good value for the money, the studio we had, had a fridge 1 double bed I single and a sofa bed plenty of room and wardrobe space, I asked for a quiet room and sunny balcony which we got.The food was good always something to eat and dishes kept filled up.Everywhere was very clean and tidy.The entertainment team did a fantastic job and worked very hard we enjoyed the shows.Good location even with the hill which wasn't too bad and we are seniors.The staff were good as were the drinks, we were A/I. More Spanish people but didn't have a problem at all.To sum up a good value holiday, thanks to all at Hotel Bali.More



Brilliant entertainment lovely atmosphere food a bit repetitive but we ate out in the evenings in the marina. Loved it so much we are returning this weekend :) can't wait!! Excellent for kids, my daughter chose to go again this year back to the Bali :)More
