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.

Good hotel and value for money

Stayed here with my husband for five nights at the end of October. We found the hotel to be in a lovely location except for the hill but it's nothing! We are in our 20's though. We got a taxi from the airport which only coat us 20 euros so don't bother with transfers as they are a waste of money! Upon arrival, about 11:30am, our room wasn't ready but we could still have our all inclusive bands on which was a bonus! Waited about an hour for our room which had a pool and sea view. The shower in the room was like a power shower which was great! We didn't try the bath. Snack bar was good but closed when the restaurant opened which is rubbish! We didn't want to get dressed and go down for lunch when we were sunbathing. Anyway, an overall good holiday, the only improvement would be a little more choice for the food as it was not that good. Would return though! More



We stayed at this hotel from 13th - 20th October, this was our second visit, having stayed the previous October. we enjoyed it so much the first time, it was a no brainer to book the Bali again. The kids have had a ball both times, meeting friends at the pool, being kept occupied by the great entertainers who keep them happy during the day. The entertainment at night is good and mixed, the rooms are fantastic with a sea and pool view at NO EXTRA CHARGE, the location of the hotel is perfect, the food is good. The bar prices are reasonable, It is overall a fantastic 3 star hotel, people looking for 5 star need to look elsewhere, you get what you pay for, and considering the price we paid to stay here (£376 for a family of 4 half board ) it is excellent. We go here in October as a 2nd holiday so always looking for a cheap week. See my review from last year where I have spoken more in depth about the hotel. There are 2 pools, one near the main reception area and one downstairs, my only criticism was the service at the bar upstairs during the day was awful, waited ages to get served but at night it was much better. We all agreed that if we went back to Benalmadena we would love to stay at the Bali for a 3rd time.More

Well worth the money

Stayed here for 4 days mid November, excellent, all inclusive served real coffee, not stuff pre mixed from a machine, local served and inclusive alcohol was San Miguel and decent spirits, not your normal watered down rubbish, food was excellent, rooms excellent, good entertainment, really nice staff, lots of Spanish in hotel, but what do you expect, your in spain ! They have holidays as well. Would defo recomend. The hill that others mention, it's nothing unless your an invalid or 90 years old.More

You can't knock it for the price

This is a HUGE hotel in a great location providing brilliant value for money out of season. The room was fine and I loved the gallons of hot water for the bath. What a treat, as I've been to British hotels where you get a tepid trickle when all other other guests have used up the hot! Food was plentiful, loads of choice, though it can be a bit of a trial wandering about to stock up on your own cutlery, food and drink as the dining room is also massive with two sets of salad, mains and desserts available. I imagine it must be hellish in high season with people queuing and bumping into each other. There was plenty of evening entertainment, if a bit end-of-the-pier show with free bingo, and stuff to do during the day if you wanted, such as darts and line-dancing. It was a go-to hotel for many, who were making return visits. I prefer smaller hotels.More
