When I am in Bali I stay at the Baleka! I just love this hotel, the staff remember your name and always greet me with a kind heart and respect, The room service is fast, if there is ever a problem it is fixed immediately... thank you Toni for always looking after me!
The Baleka resort and spa was a lovely hotel they have just put in a new pool area which was really nice staff are so friendly and can't do enough for you. Breakfast was nice enough to fill you up for a while. Easy access to the beach you can walk to heaps of awesome places to eat like La Monte and Sugar Rays. Would be quite happy to stay there again.
I mean, honestly? Bad food, bad drinks, dirty towels, dirty bathroom, spotty internet, bad spa, terrible service all around. Great pool! I wouldn't go again but I would say that people should go only if they are staying for a short time and plan to either lounge poolside all day or be away all day. It advertises itself as a resort/spa but truly it is not. It's a third-rate hotel with a third-rate spa and a nice pool. Pictures really do it some false advertising. It could be a really amazing place if they cared to make the food better and service more productive. Considering the area of Bali it is in, I was not pleased in the end to pay what I did (I thought it was overpriced for the quality). BUT I have heard that people staying in different rooms had different experiences; I chose the Classic Room with WiFi. Stay away from those rooms, if you really want to stay at this resort you'll have to pay a little more for the nicer rooms because the Classic Rooms are very dark and have absolutely terrible bathrooms. It also depends on what you want out of a hotel, but I dunno, I guess I expect hotels these days to have shampoo, a hair dryer, clean towels. The usual. ALSO along with their false advertising: They say on their website that there is a Running Track. There is no running track. When I asked about it the guy at the front desk told me I could run laps around the pool as if I was stupid enough to believe that that's a running track. They should stop lying in their marketing and people wouldn't be so disappointed in their services. It's just annoying.
Second time at the Baleka Staff are fantastic polite friendly and helpful Place has been renovated there is still some work going on at new front office was not in our way They now have a second pool and new classic rooms open in Feb Rooms clean,beds comfy ,different breakfast each day Would definitely stay again
I stayed over Christmas with my husband and sister in law. I really went back and forth on the rating as a few things occurred that were really annoying but when I thought about it, I'd go back. First the pros. The place is lovely. The pools are lovely. The rooms aren't perfect, but they're really really nice. The tiny things that were wrong about our room were so miniscule that anyone who actually complained about them would be a pedant. The staff are lovely. Smiley and helpful. The location is great, plenty shops and good restaurants within walking distance. The beach is nearby, accessible through an alley way (a torch is handy at night for this!). If you go to the beach then turn right once you reach the beach as if you go left, there may be a lot of rubbish piled up. The cons - Breakfast - it's fine, but the hotel should buy a fan to keep air blowing on the fruit/pastry table. It was crawling with flies and, though they use a mesh cover, the flies were getting in. The food wasn't good, we ordered lunch there once and ate out afterwards. Not a big deal. The water was shut off a few times for long periods and we weren't warned about it. There were power cuts too but that was the area I believe and not the fault of the hotel. We had a big issue with my sister in law's breakfast card. We booked through Expedia and the hotel had it down that she wasn't entitled to free breakfast. We resolved it the next day but then it came out again in check out which was very frustrating as it took a while to sort and we had to get to the airport. A few other little things happened but those were the ones that niggled. As I said, I would go back. The cost is very good for this place and we very much enjoyed our stay overall.
The place for us to holiday at. Since last time the new pool has been finished, and it is looking special, first rate. Toni the manager still greats us when we arrive, one of the best managers we have come across in our trips OS. Everything is just great and is well worth the money to stay at this hotel. I have recommended it to people and none have had a bad word to say about it. Some people expect more but, it is only a 3.5 star hotel. We are booking again for later this year.
Arrived late at night to a demolition site and was a bit concerned. However upon entering the hotel to a warm reception, welcome drink and cold towel not so worried. They also explained about the new reception, pool and rooms being built. I had asked for a ground floor room which they offered but there were only rooms with single beds so we took the 1st floor with the double bed. The room was large, older style wood furniture, great air con and a view directly over the pool. Two waters were replaced each day and there were plenty of toiletries supplied. Jug with coffee etc and a mini bar with soft drinks and beer. Great shopping and restaurant area lots and lots of choices. Post office next door, plenty of ATMs, bars and laundries. Quick access to the beach via the Ossotel hotel. Small laneway on the side of the hotel gets you to the beach. Staff were wonderful across all areas of the hotel. The new pool and rooms are really beautiful. Love the pool. Will definitely be returning its my new favourite hotel in Bali. We paid $50 a night which included a good buffet breakfast.
Hi, This trip to Bali will be my last. I spent a week and a half here over Christmas for a friend's birthday and experienced a series of crap things but to top it off has to be my last night at Baleka. All the rooms have adjoining rooms, I was in a room by myself and my friends were in adjoining rooms downstairs. I was extremely tired from not having any sleep for a week at at airbnb because I had no blanket (Mahi Mahi, don't stay there). I had a shower and was laying on my bed too tired to move and noticed that my room had adjoining door and jokingly sent a message to my friends downstairs "I hope no one comes in." Literally as I said that the door flew open. I screamed out "get out" after about 30 seconds I got up and out a towel on, opened the door to find a Baleka staff member standing in there with an entire family! I was very angry and demanded he lock the door and not open it again. The next day I spoke to the manager and all he took no responsibility for it and actually blamed the people who were in the room last for not making sure the door was locked which is utterly outrageous. I explained to him that it isn't guests jobs to make sure the room is secure but HIS job! Those people had access to my room for a full day! On top of this the rooms are old and so so so dark and the WiFi will drive you insane. It logs you out every 10 minutes and you have to keep putting in the username and password into a website, it's so early 2000s. My friends rooms didn't even pick up the WiFi. You can definitely get better accommodation for the price. Lock up your stuff everywhere you go. We all had things stolen on this trip even at our airbnb (things that we didn't take outside our hotel rooms). Good luck.
We are business people in Bali and we stay in many different forms of accommodation but for as long as I can remember we have chosen to stay every Christmas at this wonderful resort. It's not the biggest or the best but when you consider what you need from a hotel it delivers in spades! The staff are very friendly and they have just refurbished the front end of the hotel so it looks amazing. Beds are comfortable and rooms are safe, they have adjoining rooms with internal doors so parents can have privacy and kids are just in the next room. Sitting here in the new pool area prompted me to write this review as everything seemed to pause and gave me time to think about other things but work and what needs to be done in the new year, well mission accomplished baleka, will be a regular for a while I believe.

I gave the Baleka 4 stars due to its value for money.We have stayed here before and were not disappointed our second trip round.We booked the deluxe room on the pool # 126.The room is huge.....Inside the room was a large bathroom,huge bedroom and a room at the front with daybed,desk and coffee facilities.We were greeted by Tony as soon as we arrived and given a welcome drink.Check in was quick and painless and were taken straight to our room which was cool,clean and had everything we needed for the $60 a night we paid.It is located behind all the beachfront hotels in Legian on Padma St and runs through back to Werkadara St.Walking to the beach takes 5 minutes.There were no many people staying in the hotel so it was quiet and at times you had the whole pool to yourselves.Pool towels always at hand and no fighting over sun chairs.Pool was clean and cool with a swim up bar where you just had to ring the bell and you were served immediately from the restaurant,GULA GULA.Big TV,Kettle and tea and coffee.Basic toiletries and always clean and fresh towels,Very hot shower,mini bar with beers,cool drinks and water.The bed and all sheets were changed every day and not just made up with the same sheets.The bed was comfortable and we asked for 2 more pillows and they were immediately delivered.Anything you wanted they were happy to provide.Breakfast in the morning could have been better but there were always fresh eggs and a huge helping of bacon if you wanted it.Food in the warmers was generally cold and unappetising but there was cereal,toasts,sweet breads,fresh fruit,tea and coffee.More than enough for us to choose from.The staff were so friendly and a big thankyou to Alit and Nyoman in Gula Gula who were awesome.Couldnt do enough for you and happy to have a chat.We will miss you.Probably the only downfall was the lack of WiFi in your room.It could only be accessed from beside the pool and it dropped out completely on Friday and wasn't back when we left on Sunday.Not a huge problem but could be for some.They are doing renovations to the front area of the hotel adding a huge pool and updating the rooms.At no stage were we disturbed from any noise or activity.Looking forward to seeing the finished results.If you are looking at excellent value for money and a great location then give this hotel a go.We have stayed in a lot of hotels in Bali but this one has been far and away the best Value.The deluxe rooms are massive and for the extra $$ you spend to stay there, I would than in the standard rooms which are smaller and upstairs.Day tours can be booked from the front lobby and taxis are available in the hotel or just outside nearly 24/7.Will definitely be going there again and thankyou for the staff for making us so welcome
