The Hotel Bali, Benalmadena is part of the Medplaya Hotel group who have several hotels within Spain. We have visited several Medplaya hotels and each one has the same standards and ambience.

 

Location of the Hotel Bali

The Hotel Bali in Benalmadena is located just a few streets from the beach. The port of Benalmadena is around 10-15 minutes pleasant walk along the sea front. There are lots of cafes and bars in the hotel area so you will never be short of somewhere to go. There are several small shops where you can buy essential provisions and beach items. A short walk away are several supermarkets.

First impressions of the Hotel Bali

The design of the Bali means that most of the rooms have sea views. The hotel is based within several blocks with lifts to all floors. The dining room is conveniently located on the -1 floor. The bar, dance hall and public areas are located on 0, the same as the reception. As you enter the Hotel Bali, you will see that it is similar to all the Medplaya hotels and it has been designed to be easy to get around and an emphasis has been placed on the public areas. The hotel is very clean and modern.

 

The staff at the Hotel Bali

We imagine that many of the staff here have been here for several years and are used to dealing with English visitors. In all departments, they take pride in their jobs, respect the guests and are very friendly. The bar staff in particular have a great raport with the guests. Reception staff speak perfect English and are on hand to help wherever they can. There are tour operators that work from desks next to the reception. Here you can book excursions and ask for general advice.


The guests at the Hotel Bali

We visited the hotel during the winter season when the hotel is very popular with the older generation. The hotel was still relatively busy. We spoke to many of the guests and heard nothing but praise for the hotel. Many of the guests had been coming for years and often stayed at the hotel for several months at a time. There were many happy faces around the hotel, day and night. UK flights arrived and departed on a regular basis.


Facilities at the hotel

The hotel has a games room with pool table, internet access, money exchange, laundry service, daily chambermaid service and several pleasant public areas. There's free wi-fi in reception area but you pay a fee if you want internet in your room. There are two dance areas with a wide range of entertainment and activities.

 

Hotel Bali
Outside, the hotel has two very nice and clean swimming pools. There's a large pool and a childrens' pool. There are several terraces and sun decks with ample sun loungers. All the furniture was in good condition. In the summer there's a poolside bar although this was closed for the winter.

 


The rooms at the Hotel Bali

The rooms were not over large but they were more than adequate. They were clean and airy with a sunny balcony. The room furniture was basic but tastefull and all in good condition.

 

Hotel Regente, Benidorm
The beds were very comfortable, ample wardrobe space and a very clean bathroom. The bathroom came with lots of toiletries and hairdryers were available from reception. The rooms are air conditioned and have a safe. There's also a small TV. There are two lifts to all floors.
   

 

 

Bathrooms are small but adequate and had lots of toiletries.

 

Water was hot, any time day or night.


Hotel Regente, Benidorm

 

 

The bed linen was clean and white. Maids clean the rooms everyday.

 

There were spare pillows in the wardrobe.

 


The entertainment at the Hotel Bali

The program of entertainment at the Hotel Bali is different every day of the week and certainly varied. The winter program is different to the summer. In the summer the entertainment seems to be geared towards young families with lots of childrens' activities. In the winter, there's daily bingo, fun and games followed by live shows and singers. There are two dance floors and a resident entertainment team. The bar is staffed by excellent, multi-lingual bar staff and there are regular happy hours.

The meals at the Hotel Bali

The hotel offers various options for board including full-board and half-board. Meals are taken in the groundfloor restaurant. The restaurant is immaculately clean. There are hand washes as you enter. The food is very well presented and there's an excellent choice. Meals are buffet style. Most of the food was hot and the salads were served very cold. Dinner included several meat dishes and a few fish dishes so there should be something for everyone. There was always a good selection of fresh fruit and some superb deserts. Breakfast included a cooked breakfast and continental.
