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 5-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.

Ideal for families

Firstly got to mention the entertainment team, they work flat out from morning til night and always full of energy taking time out to speak to guests, waiters were all top banana as was the food in all inclusive, meat cooked lovely, for fussy kids there is a kids section in dining area, all inclusive crisps are the bees knees, location of this hotel was great, central to everywhere. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to get away with the family, ideal for couples too due to location, couldn't think of anything negative to say at all. Rooms cleaned daily, clean towels each day too and rooms spacious enough for family of 4.More

great value for money

stayed here 5th July 2014 Had a very relaxing week and found the hotel and staff very friendly. The food selection in the dining room was spot on, something for everyone. The entertainment team at the Bali was fantastic. the shows they staged every night were very professionally choreographed and the themes were great. well done to all. The pool areas were very clean and there were ample sunbeds for everyone. The entertainment staff came round the pool every day to get people involved in various activities. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will be returning asap. The rooms were very clean and sea view as requested, the only negative i can come up with is the lack of a kettle and fridge in the rooms. The all inclusive option at this hotel is a must, the selection of local beers wines and spirits is of good quality also plenty of branded soft drinks A brilliant hotel for the moneyMore

Tony L,

Outdated decor but very clean

Stayed here 3rd July 14 as a family all inclusive, very 70's style decor, food we all found to be of poor choice and didn't really eat much but drinks great value and always plenty of staff around to serve who were all very pleasant, 1 really good point to make is that the entertainment programme for families in the evening was brilliant, my kids had a ballMore
