Love the atmosphere of the resort, friendly and rustic rather than brash and loud with too much noisy music. I've had about 7-8 holidays in Bali and would always go back. I love it. It's not over-developed. I also love the food in the tavernas and the people are always so friendly and welcoming, they always seem to remember you from year to year, and they must see thousands of visitors every year. Great.

Bali is beautiful but be aware it is very very hilly if not hills then steps. The best way to see the resort is by the little train which will take you all around Bali it's €10 for two and takes about an hour. The harbour is nice with lots of bars and places to eat, a must is Postos cafe the food is huge and the drinks are good. Be prepared for lots of free ouzo and other treats when you ask for the bill. The middle beach as we called it has good cocktail bars and some nice restaurants, the Italian is a must if you like pasta and big pizza, followed by a cocktail next door, you will not move very fast or far after. I was not impressed with the end part of the resort but that's just my opinion. <br /> <br /> The price of food across the whole resort is very good we paid at most €35 and the least €23 this is for two adults large beer glass of wine two mains sometimes a starter, learning not to have a pudding because they normally give you a little something with the bill. Drinks range from €2.50 to €4.50 per large beer depending what and where you drink, the wine is cheap and nice depending on your taste I guess, not much in the way of entertainment in the bars just music, but we did go out of season late September. On the whole very chilled, very easy days, good food, nice welcoming people, beautiful beaches, great place to charge your batteries.

Nice resort but hilly in places. Most beaches are sandy (some course sand/gritty) but can get busy, especially on Sunday's when the Greek families turn up. Many tavernas to choose from with good quality home cooked food. Fairly good value but the well publicised VAT changes in Greece may make a difference next year?

Bali is perfect for families or older beach lovers as it's relatively quiet at night but has loads of seaside entertainment and five main beaches to choose from. The resort is a bit hilly but there is a little train service twice an hour round the complete resort which also drops you off at the main road bus stops in perfect time to connect up with the bus to Rethymnon. There's a very wide range of shops and Tavernas and we found Valentino's Taverna by the Port beach the best for our needs. It's centrally located about half way between Rethymnon and Heraklion and return bus fare to Rethymnon is only 7.5 Euros. There's plenty of excursions on offer from various travel shops in the resort and there's also a boat cruise trip to Rethymnon and back for 30 Euros and nearby Panormo and back for 15 Euros. We found the Livardi beach the best for our needs, that's the big long beach you come to first off the main road and this is flanked by excellent taverna/hotels where you can use their facilities if you hire their related sun loungers and shade.

Lovely but very quiet. Does have everything you need including a pharmacy and doctors. Trips run from Bali including to the water park, Santorini and Spinalonga. There is Crazy Town if you fancy a night out and there are plenty of bar/taverna type places too. The beaches are lovely and the water is pretty calm. Water sports activities are available.

Love Bali, very friendly and good tavernas and it was great to be remembered by so many of the locals. Been there several times before but previously stayed at another apartment complex, which is now unfortunately too expensive for us. Bali is very family friendly and there are some good mini supermarkets too.

As typically Greek as it gets, more for the more mature not night clubbers - only one club, right at the end of the beach away from most hotels. However really safe beaches for families with children. <br /> <br /> Lovely tavernas along the 3 separate beaches all serving traditional Greek dishes. No indian or Chinese restaurants in the resort. I would say that Bali is not the best place for the less mobile within reason as it is built amongst the hills, although there are a few flat access areas to the central beach. I was reluctant to write about Bali as I want to keep it a secret, love it there will definitely go back.

Small, hilly place which can get crowded at peak times but still a special place for a family holiday. Car hire available to get around but limited choice.
