I have been coming here for 30 years and always encounter the same staff from when I was a child. Not this time. ALL staff are new and wearing black and white trainee uniforms. There were NO experienced staff. The young girls couldn't speak English, the drinks were watered down and food slow to come. Our family ordered pizzas which... More

We stayed at La Taverna for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Don't go if you're looking for the standard resort experience but do go if you like your hotels authentic and full of character. The location is stunning, right on the beach. The rooms are comfortable, clean and charming. We loved the sandy paths, the Balinese bungalows, the... More

We spent the last couple of nights of our Bali holiday at the La Taverna. This was the 2nd time we had stayed here, having previously stayed 2.5 years ago. On our previous trip we had arrived with our internet booking confirmation in hand only to be advised that La Taverna had no record of the booking and had received... More

We stayed the last 3 nights of our holiday here and it ended our holiday on a not-so-good note. The first room we were given was damp and dark and included a puddle of water from the leaking a/c - not a very good night's sleep was had in the dank sheets. We switched rooms to a better, cleaner room... More

The problem writing a review is that one doesn't want to offend the obliging staff who eke out a very modest living in hospitality - in this case our disappointment is the responsibility of the owners. The rooms are large, but lacking in privacy unless you choose to draw the dark curtains and have the lights on during the day.... More

La Taverna was our first stop for a 4 week stay in Bali and Gilli islands. Great position right on beach front with breakfast area overlooking ocean. Buildings are old style and in need of some maintenance but charming and comfortable. We had a two large rooms in our garden view apartment with outdoor Taverna sitting area off each room.... More

Please check my other reviews. I consider myself to be easy to please, but this stay was not a good one. I felt safe there, and the bed was fine. Other than that, there isn't much good to say about our room, which was #14. Lighting was poor, and there was one lamp we had to control by plugging and... More

We had a wonderful time in hotel La Taverna / Sanur. The room (nr. 34) was very quiet and very artisticly decorated with a lovely porch in front. All together it was like a little heaven with respect to the beautiful garden and peace and quiet all around. They do indeed spray once or twice a week with a substance... More

This hotel has had some negative feedback at times, but we have enjoyed our 2nd stay at La Taverna in September. It might depend on what room type you have, but we found our Family Deluxe room just perfect for our family of 2 adults & 2 children. We requested a ground floor room & luckily this time, that's what... More
