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 five-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.

My husband and I booked a long weekend in this hotel and got back this morning. Awful! It looked lovely online. Was advised by the online chat person I could upgrade to all inclusive as I was already booked full board. Turns out you can only do this if you have booked for longer than 3 nights, or are willing to pay 236â¬ more for the weekend. We were put on the 7th floor with a room which can only be described as tiny. The bathroom smelled of sewage on arrival and didn't improve at all. We did have a sea view if you could cope with being as high up. I would have moved hotel had I been staying longer but we felt we should at least give the food and entertainment a try. Food was not even average. Had a few mouthfuls of what was described as curry on Friday evening. Didn't go to breakfast or lunch on Saturday as we couldn't face it but did try to have dinner in the evening. We shared some chips which were warm and a bowl of ice cream. We did try other things but they were just not edible! We were two doors along from the lifts. Noise all night for 3 nights. Constant! This hotel is set up from the main drag on whats called cardiac hill. This is not really a problem for us although my calfs are sore today with all the climbing. We didn't even bother to complain to reception because of the treatment we got from the person we tried to upgrade with. He wasn't interested in the slightest and we felt like we were being a nuisance. I've been going to benalmadena for around 12 years now and love the place. Have many good memrories from there but this visit just ended up costing way more that it should have for a very below average experience. I won't be booking the Bali every again!More
Can't fault this hotel food lovey Friday night glass of bubbles and flower for all guests staff lovely entertainment was great something different every day lovely bar area comfortable great atmosphere had a lovely room great pool and sea view enjoyed every minute will be back soonMore
Rooms and food is average.The location is good. The main problem is the hill you have to climb .Did see many people struggling, including me.Many Spanish staying the same time ad us, did tend to be very loud.More
lads wk away
First of all bar staff were good apart from Bellen the blonde haired one , who was rude ignorant had a very bad attitude towards me and all in our party and when talking to other guests at the hotel all thought the same , apart from that the hotel was good rooms were ok maids were first class ,good choice of food in restaurant ,good location apart from the hill , it was a shame that one member of staff can spoil a few days away.More
