The Hotel Bali, Benalmadena, Spain

The Hotel Bali

The Hotel Bali is to be found in a superb location, almost in the very heart of the beautiful resort of Benalmadena, on Spain's Costa del Sol. Less than five minutes' walk from the beach, The Hotel Bali is also only ten to fifteen minutes' walk from such as Benalmadena's Old Town and railway station, as well as being equally close to all the major bars and pubs which Benalmadena offers as a resort. This is a review of the Hotel Bali which will attempt to look at what to see and do both in the hotel and around it.

Benalmadena is to be found between Torremolinos and Fuengirola, on Spain's Costa del Sol, and The Hotel Bali is within easy walking distance of the former and a short bus or train journey of the latter. Whether you therefore wish to experience Torremolinos' legendary nightlife or perhaps visit the popular market at Fuengirola, The Hotel Bali is an ideal location from which to do either and lots, lots more.

The Balcony Views from The Hotel Bali

If you are lucky enough to be assigned a room at the front of The Hotel Bali and high enough up, the pictures to the right will give you an idea of the magnificent views you can expect to be able to enjoy from your own private balcony. Whether looking out towards Torremolinos, Benalmadena Old Town or Marina or even the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, the stunning land or seascapes will take your breath away, whatever the weather happens to be.

The balconies of The Hotel Bali are equipped with a table and chairs, so why not open a bottle of wine, sit back and enjoy some of the beautiful scenery which this magnificent location has to offer the visitor before setting out to explore it first hand.

Please note, however, that for very understandable safety reasons, children under the age of twelve must be accompanied on the balcony at all times by a supervising adult. Similarly, adults should not enjoy too many glasses of that wine when sitting on the balcony!

What is your Favourite thing about Benalmadena and the Costa del Sol in General?

This photo is obviously of the pool late in the evening when the guests have moved on to enjoy the other forms of entertainment afforded by both The Hotel Bali and the resort of Benalmadena in general.

A Fascinating trip to make while Staying at The Hotel Bali

If you like a little bit of adventure on holiday or vacation as opposed to simply lying on the beach all of the time, consider making the journey up to the summit of Calamorro Mountain by virtue of the Teleferico Cable car. The views you will experience from the top are beyond description and there is also some further excitement to be found at the summit in the form of a Birds of Prey show.

I like Benalmadena, it has a great selection of restaurants, tapas bar, discos and shopping areas. It has everything one might want for a fun filled summer holiday and to top it up it is very close to the real Spanish pueblos.
