Been to the Bali Five times in all.
We have had nothing less than a great holiday on each of our visits. We usually see at least one family who have returned for yet another great holiday.
Both Med and Playa buildings are comfortable although we prefer the Med as it has been fully refurbished.
ALL staff at the Bali are very friendly and helpful. Antonio, Paco, Juan, Cecilio and , up to last year, Constantino are more than capable bar staff who will happilly pass the time of day with guests. Happy hour is on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday when ALL drinks are two for one including tea and coffee!!
Thomson Reps are fine. Natalie the senior Rep runs a tight ship. Never been pestered to buy trips by any of them.
The choice and quality of food in the restaurant is excellent. It ...
is also run like clockwork. Maybe in high season you will have to queue but it is worth the wait.Read More
A couple of things I don\'t like: First is the ratio of parasols to beds at pool side. There are more than enough beds but parasols are sadly lacking. Thus I had to rise at \"stupid o\'clock\" in order to make sure we had one for our baby. (And NO - We weren\'t one of the selfish people who claim a bed then don\'t use it!!)
Second is the lifts in the Med building. Slmall and sometimes unreliable. Pain in the bum when you have a room on the 7th (top) floor (which we always ask for as the views are fantastic)
Entertainment is first class given the facilities.
During our stays at Bali the Spanis Animacion team was run by the wonderful Olga and Fernando. They have been ably assisted by other enthusiastic staff. They are on site from 10am to be in charge of the Archery, Pistol/Rifle shooting etc and yet still put on a full evenings entertainment.Consequently they can be at Bali from 10am to 1am. Yet ALWAYS they smile :)
Sadly Olga no longer works at Bali and Fernando now works on reception at the Hotel. A sad loss for guests old and new.
We have tried to book a half term holiday in May 2008 but the half board option has already sold out. This is a reflection on the standard of this excellent FAMILY hotel.
