We had pizza and pasta at La taverna several times (including take away). Tasted really good, and when it comes to pasta I am rather picky. So I think you will be satisfied, as long as you do not get the idea that it is a fancy authentic Italian. Good thing is that they have a 1 day pool and... More

It's located right on the beach in Sanur, near to just about everything. Rooms are basic, a bit small for a family of 4. (We got family room with 1ba). But for only 2 nights, it was fine. I'd imagine it would get a bit cramp if stays longer. There are family rooms that are bigger, but it was occupied.... More

November 2013, we booked here online and paid in full up front as the photos looked nice and the thought of staying in some of Sanur oldest traditional gardens was appealing. However on arrival we were shown to our room which was the Garden suit, a second level room which was very hot and the airconditioning was not working. We... More

Delighted to be back after a long absence and to find it just as good. La Taverna is from the early times of international holidaying in Bali and it is all the better for that. The villas are very comfortable and the ambiance is uniquely a merger of Balinese and Italian, showing both sides of it's heritage. This all happens... More

Really loved this place. Directly on the beach with a nice pool. We thought the room was spacious with a nice bathroom. Outside seating area was also very spacious. Staff were nice, breakfast good, outside hotel you can easily walk to several places for dinner and supermarket & ATM are around the corner.

we selected the hotel for it's location, it was mentioned in a few guidebooks and the website looked very good. First the good bits: - excellent location in Sanur, direct on the beach. Every morning you have breakfast with seaview. Lots of good and inexpensive restaurants on the mainstreet of with your feet in the sand on the beach. It's... More

This is the second time we've stayed here and unfortunately, it's not like it used to be. Because we booked "off the street" it seems we were not entitled to airport transfers unlike nearly every other hotel we stayed in in Bali. When we were booking in we were met with stern warnings about no drinking in rooms otherwise you... More

We recently stayed 5 nights at La Taverna and enjoyed the hotel immensely. The hotel is beachfront, quiet and well maintained. There's lots of sun beds on the beach and the was pool clean, deep and cool. The breakfast is very nice, eggs any style with ham or bacon, fruit juice, fresh fruit and a basket of pastries and toast... More

I can see why this place has attracted some fairly poor reviews recently. All is certainly not right. However all is certainly not wrong either and there were enough good bits for us that we enjoyed our 3 night stay. We rather liked our quirky little room. The bed was comfy, the room was quiet enough (although I think this... More
