Gran Hotel Bali Benidorm

hotel grand bali
this hotel i stayed at was very good when we first got there we wasnt very happy with our rooms so we decided to ask them for a room with a balcony the next day the staff behind the dsk was very kind and they said that is no problem. everyone at the hotel was very friendly the hotel view from the top is just immence.
Unique Quality: the pool was fun a little bit crowded though but the view just topped it off.
tallest building in Europe
Receptionist at check in was very sour faced and basicly just issed a door card. We later found out you can top your card with money to get 15% of your drinks bill and any used cash is refunded when you check out , also you can top it up at any time.
We had a room in the lower block, the bedroom and bathroom was a good size with a nice balcony.
Food was OK, you could always find something that you liked, soup, salad bar, main course of fish, poultry and red meat with veg and a pasta with a sauce, also fresh hot grill with fish or meat plus chips or other potato dish, dessert was fresh fruit plus cake and jelly type puds which were a bit boring.
The entertainment was OK, one bar had a group for dancing plus sometimes a professional act at 10.30ish. The other bar had mixed entertainment, resident band or singer then 10.30ish a professional act, one night an English singer, one night a dance duo etc.
The bus from the hotel was 1Euro to Benidorm but if you stayed later then 10pm you need a taxi to get back which cost between 7 to 9 Euros, I understand in the high season the bus runs all night. During the day it was a nice stroll along the beach or seafront to Poniente or Levante, also the nearby Cala Finestrat beach was nice.
We enjoyed our stay but would not return to this hotel as it was too far out from the main shops and entertainment of Benidorm and although very modern seemed a bit soulless.
Unique Quality: The hotel is the tallest building in Europe. There are 23 lifts, 2 which are panoramic but were not in use during our visit because of high winds. You can take the lift to the 43 floor and pay 1 Euro (5 for nonresidents) to go out on to the panoramic roof top for a view stretching right across Benidorm.
The tallest hotel building in Europe
I was there with my family to spend the new year holidays. Assisted the party. the hotel was spectacular as a structure, however was a great deception as to the quality of services, food, customer service etc., etc., Obviously this is my personal opinion. Go there just to see the view from the trerrace ( at a cost of course ) but DONT stay here. It is expensive for the value they offer, which is pretty poor.
Benidorms Biggest Secret
Overall a satisfactory stay at this hotel.We were a little put off reading other writer's thoughts but these proved to be spurious.Nice welcome , good food ,great room.Entertainment average.If hiring a car there is a 10 euro pn charge for garaging.Also a charge for gym and equipment so we never saw anyone using it for the duration of our stay!If you do not need a car take the no5 bus from outside the hotel to Benidorm port / old town (1 euro pp each way) .Here you will find good fishing , a great array of shops , bars , restaurants etc and a varied outlook on life from all over the world!Try Sherry's Bar at the top of the steps by the marina.
Hotel could do with an indoor pool or heated outdoor one and lose the increase to drinks charge after 8.30pm.
Unique Quality: A friendly hotel where the staff were only too willing to meet the demands of the guests.
Directions: Poniente area of Benidorm near to Terra Mitica.
Usage of Lifts/Elevators
Recently came back from Benidorm (Oct 11th). My partner and I went to the top of the Grand Bali to get a panoramic view of the Costa (5euros each) on our way down we used the Glass outside lift to descend, the lift jammed on the 37th floor. We pushed the alarm and apparently nobody heard or did anything, we were in that lift for 30 minutes, as luck would have it we were given a leaflet on the Grand Bali which had a booking telephone number, so I had to call them on my mobile to contact the hotel reception to inform them of our plight.
We did not get any applogy, and I just got a refund of my 10 euros. (WARNING, IF YOU GO INTO THERE LIFTS MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RECEPTION DESKS TEL NUMBER AND A MOBILE PHONE).

More about Gran Hotel Bali Benidorm
Gran Hotel Bali superb
I went to the Hotel Bali for my stag weekend. I was expecting the usual bed,sink,shower,toilet, but upon arrival what a sight. This towering building in front of me. It has to be one of the best hotels I've stayed in( and I've stayed in hotels all over the world). The food was great. Okay there wasn't alot of local delicacies but in general it was tasty. The bar service was good and the reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Even the night security were friendly chaps not like some holiday resorts. My only gripe was the pool was freezing but it was January. In general well worth a visit for family,oldies and couples.
Tallest hotel in Europe
The Gran Hotel Bali claims to be the tallest hotel in Europe, as well as the highest building in the whole of Spain. The views from the suites in the upper floors are breathtaking, so forget your preconceptions about this fascinating and unique city, and enjoy high life in this hotel whenever you need a break.
Dirk at Gran Hotel Bali
Gran Bali Hotel
Has anyone out there stayed at the hotel Gran Bali. If so was it ok, and is it near the main area of Benidorm.
RE: Gran Bali Hotel
haven´t stayed there, just visited it some years ago. It is about 15 mins. walking to main area, but there are public buses running. I think the hotel has also a bus sevice to the center. The higher you get the room the better, and make sure your room would be on the main building!. (www.grupobali.com)
