Great Value Hotel with Fantastic Staff

Stayed at the Bali for 2 weeks from the 27th September on a All Inclusive deal. This was a super value for money hotel in a great location, with the exception of the little hill at the front of the hotel. The staff at this hotel are superb, with the bar staff getting my vote as some of the best I have came across, nothing was a problem to them. (A special mention to Juan Martin Alvarez, who was super) The food was also good. The evening meals were very good, with the chefs out carving and helping out. Lunch was ok but we rarely had lunch as we were out and about and ate else where or had a snack at the pool side. The drinks were all local, but they were fine and for a couple of euro's per drink you could have premium brands or first class cocktails. Small bottles of water were also available on the A I deal. Would have no hesitation in returning. Thanks to all at the Bali for a great time.More

Family Friendly Hotel

We have just returned from this hotel, October 2014. Overall a very good hotel. Food was excellent. Entertainment was very good. Very helpful and friendly staff. Room was clean and tidy. Was disappointed that there was no fridge in the room, nowadays this is standard in most hotels but here you have to pay 5€ per day for the privilege. WiFi available in the public areas but if you want the luxury of WiFi in your room this will cost you approx 15€ per week per device! I wouldn't mind paying 15€ per week for WiFi in the room but per device is a bit steep! Talking of steep, the hotel is located approx 100 meters up a hill which is quite aptly nicknames 'Cardiac Hill', but excellent sea views if you are lucky enough to have a sea view room.More

Spent a week here at the end of Sep 14. First visit to Costa del Sol and booked hotel based on previous reviews. First impression was o.k. - reception staff efficient and welcoming, and quick. Corridor to room is very dated and the orange walls could do with a lick of paint and carpet dated. However cannot fault cleanliness of room and hotel overall. Food choice was good for AI as were the quality of the drinks. My only negative was the bar staff - majority of who were very ignorant - would walk past in stead of serving, never saw a smile and trying to be pleasant to them was met with a brick wall. The restaurant staff were a little better and service in the restaurant was very good. The walk back up to the hotel after a stroll each day certainly helped to keep the calories at bay!! Overall an excellent place to holiday and I would return to the area, though not necessarily to the Bali.More

enjoyable stay oct 7 - 14 oct 2014

had a lovely time even though the weather wasn't as good as last year at this time of year. found the staff to be very helpful and polite, food was fine and didn't really struggle to find out to eat, drinks were all nice and entertainment was very good. rooms were modern and clean, though thought bathroom could do with a little TLC. The rooms were a bit on the small side and my partner kept walking into the table near to the wall going to the bathroom in the night. Beds were very comfortable but I kept getting red spots on my right on side that I was sleeping on. Had a fabulous view over the marina and beach. Really pleased. Hotel is a bit tired but didnt spoil our nice time here. Close to shops, bars and restaraunts. Mullarkys Irish bar was really good down the hill and turn right. Had a lovely trip to Marbella and had a fishing trip booked, but due to the weather turning nasty was unable to go to the fishing trip. Love Costa del Sol and will definitely will be going back but maybe try another hotel. Thanks again for the lovely stay and hope I didn't hurt peoples ears on my last night on the karaoke singing "Prince"More
