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.

Very dissapointed

Not the first time I have stayed at this hotel but definitely the last, food cleanliness etc, very good. This was a birthday surprise for my husband and WOW was this a surprise- on the 3rd night we awoke to find that guests had entered our room. After ushering them out I phoned reception and security were sent to our room to investigate. Next day We met with the Manager who assured us the incident would be fully investigated. As we had plans for the day on our return we spoke to his deputy who advised us that the incident had been investigated and no evidence had been found on cctv of people near our room or evidence that they had a key to enter our room. It was even suggested that we had left open the door!! We were left a complimentary bottle of wine in our room and offered drinks with our evening meal!!!After several letters to the manager since our return, I have been offered a major discount on my next visit. I do feel that I was accused of making up the whole story. As I work in the hotel industry I feel this was a shoddy attempt to buy my silence. Sadly I shall not be returning to the Bali.More

Good location

Stayed here a few times, quite a good location and decent hotel all round. Food not haute cuisine but a reasonable selection of hot and cold food, something for everyone. Rooms fairly average but very clean as is the rest of the hotel. Good wifi used to be free here but you now have to pay for a good connection but plenty of bars offering free good wifi. Lots of good bars very close by, Such as Lizzies next door to the Bali, Liz is a great bubbly host running bingo and quizzes,over the road is the Albatross with bingo and good quiz nightly, run byAlan and Jim.More

me and a friend have just returned from staying at this hotel , and i can say in all honesty it is probably the best 3*** hotel i have stayed at , all of the staff were friendly and helpful . it was also immaculate for cleanliness ,,, i would most certainly return , even the surrounding area and the resort itself should be proud of themselvesMore

Hotel bali

Sorry but when we go to benalmadena which is about 4 times a year and we stay. In the bali it's not the ritz but by the last review that's not a fair score to give the hotel 1 star the food has always been good for the price you pay the hotel is very clean and most of the staff are friendly if you want better you will have to pay double the price ok in the winter you get lots of Spanish in the hotel but that's what most of the hotels do in winter but we always have a good time we are going again in February and looking forward to it😎More

Hostel or Hotel?

The hotel was very very dated, it felt more like a hostel than a hotel! The food was absolutely disgusting... the restaurant was full of spanish who were like a pack of wolves that couldn't wait to ravish all the food... the pool area is like a glorified prison, wouldn't return if someone paid me.More
