Just returned from Benidorm after a weekend away for my birthday and would just like to say this hotel is fantastic. From someone who works in the holiday industry this hotel was brilliant forget all the moaners on here saying they look after there own it's more than likely that these people are to bone idol to appreciate that they are in a different country and not there normal council estate. I found all the staff very helpful and polite and found attempting to use the local lingo was appreciated, rooms were spacious, food was good and what's to be expected from mass catering, swimming pool was amazing and bar service was brilliant never waited for a drink. I would definitely return and recommend this hotel so please don't believe the comments from the few heaven holiday makers who can't appreciate what they went away for in the first place and just want to moan... Oh and Sticky Vicky is a must see lol If I go back to Benidorm I will be staying at this hotel

We stayed here on a 5 day short break. On arrival we were greeted by a miserable bloke who hardly said hello and goodbye. Our room had no balcony - which we paid for. They did resolve this straight away and move us. Our second room (with balcony) was pretty average. The bed was comfy, however the pillows were thin and there was no spare. We had 2 showers, one shower cubicle of which the hose was split and so there was no pressure, and the side jets didn't work at all. The shower above the bath had no head at all. A tile missing from the wall may be petty to mention, but for a 4* hotel, you'd expect this and all these basic things to be working. The hotel itself is very clean and we couldn't fault that. Breakfast was edible, usually not very warm, but that's air con I suppose, and I'd prefer air con than piping hot breakfast! The pools are big, however sunbeds are usually covered by other people's towels by 8am. There is one man serving, cooking glass collecting and bar tendering the pool side snack bar, who looks awfully tired and rushed. We and others actually felt sorry for him. For the amount of guests staying here, another set hands would be beneficial for both us and the hotel. The food from here, obviously, was thrown together and often things like chips undercooked. The cleanliness of the snack bar was very poor. It was dusty and crying out for a clean. Prices were fair there. Fridge isnt very good in the room. The cleaner left our door open after cleaning the room one morning. Thankfully, nothing was stolen. The evening entertainment clearly has a low budget and goes on till midnight, which, if it was worth listening to, or worth watching wouldn't be too bad, however, the singer they had Tuesday was painful to listen to. Unfortunately, due to asking for our balcony, we had to put up with that.. The hotel isn't far from a nice beach but is a 20 taxi ride away from the old town costing about €8/9 and a little more after dark. Will I return? No.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 10 days for our first holiday away together a few weeks ago and loved every second! Location: The hotel is great in the centre of the old town. 2 minute walk...
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 10 days for our first holiday away together a few weeks ago and loved every second! Location: The hotel is great in the centre of the old town. 2 minute walk from a supermarket and cafes for breakfast/lunch, and about a 5 minute walk from the Poniente beach (4.50 a day for a sunbed 4.50 for an umbrella). Supermarket proved very useful, I recommend the 6 pack of 2 litre bottles of water for only 1.60! Hotel was only about 40 minute bus journey from Alicante airport which flew by due to the gorgeous views on the way! Very close to Terra Mitica Theme Park which is a fantastic day out! And a taxi journey away from Aqualandia waterpark. (Theme park was better! - can get tickets in the hotel cheaper for both of these). We got the number 2 bus into the new town each night which was only 1.50 each, and if we were out late we would get a taxi home which is about 10 minute drive - no more than 10 euros! Rooms: We requested in our booking to be in the taller building on a high floor with a balcony and our request was granted! We were so so so pleased that we were put in the tall building on floor 25 with the most amazing sea and pool view! Room was big enough for the two of us and we were even given an extra bed. We had a twin bed but pushed the two together and it was fine. Rooms are simple design but nice enough and bathroom is modern :)! Rooms cleaned and fresh towels daily. We found we had a great nights sleep every night so comfy beds. :) Staff and reception always friendly, but be prepared to use your GCSE Spanish to try and make communicating easier!!! Pool/food: There are 3 pools, all gorgeous! There is a pool bar with snacks and drinks - no problem getting served here. We stayed 10th-20th July and the hotel was 95% Spanish guests, which we didn't mind at all in fact quite enjoyed! There were plenty beds around the pool all day, however it was getting very busy when we left so probably not anymore lol! Obviously expect a bit of a wait for the lift also. We had bed and breakfast board but only went to breakfast a few times. It wasn't too good so this would be the only down side... bacon wasn't very nice and a few of the things were cold but I suppose it was okay. We ate out every night and definitely recommend India Gate - Indian restaurant in the new town. We went here twice it was amazing! Other points: The hotel seems to equip for everyone - families, children, adults and couples!!! The Michael Jackson tribute was on in the hotel while we were there and was great! Also, the activities throughout the day are great for kids. Tip: Don't look too much into the bad reviews and remember people only complain about something and most of the time never praise something! :) Overall a brilliant stay at the Bali and would defo recommend to anyone. Enjoy! :) :)
Don't believe all the bad reviews. Fantastic hotel, very clean, all staff down to the cleaning staff spoke everytime we meet them. They were very helpful. Great quiet location for families. New town...
Don't believe all the bad reviews. Fantastic hotel, very clean, all staff down to the cleaning staff spoke everytime we meet them. They were very helpful. Great quiet location for families. New town about half hour walk, taxi about 10 mins, cost no more than €10. As for food, we only ate breakfast here but was always plenty and never ran out of anything. Plenty of room for everyone around the pool. Rooms lovely and clean and perfect views of pool and beach. Would definitely stay here again.
