We stayed in the Watu Dodol only one night, but we liked it very much. The manager picked us up from the railway station, arranged our trip to the Ijen crater the next morning for a reasonable price and brought us to the Ferry terminal in Ketapang. We had a bungalow with two connecting rooms, next to the sea and... More

After a long journey from Bali by car, this hotel offer a similar scenery with beach and sea view. Although we spend only a night and enjoy a cooling down here, i felt great. The food in the restaurant also good.

This is a fantastic find. It's our of the way so self transport is advised, however there's a restaurant with OK food, amazing views to Bali, and a small shop for water etc. Really helpful staff who don't pressure you, and spectacular pool with view. The only downside is the road noise. You're sandwiched between the ocean and the main... More

I have mixed feelings about our stay at this hotel. It appears to have been here a long time, but has been sold to the Orange Villa chain and is possibly becoming a residence hotel for people here on business. The weather was not good while we were there, very windy and sort of chilly, so relaxing by the pretty... More

The staff here are rock stars! We came to Banyuwangi from Mt. Bromo feeling a little defeated after not seeing a sunrise due to fog at Bromo. We were considering not even going to Ijen since it's difficult to do without a tour. There's not much good information online about getting to Ijen and after a 6-hour ride from Cemoro... More

Based on Tripadvisor reviews I always try to find special hotels for my travels that are good located and offer real value for money. This is definitely one of them. Watu Dodol hotel is a small hotel next to the sea with 8 two under one roof Bali style bungalows circled around a tropical garden. Especially at sunset and sunrise... More

I was staying at this hotel after visiting Mt. Ijen. To be honest, I didn't expect much from this hotel because it was rather cheap. But when I was checking in, I was surprised because the hotel is actually good! You can see Bali Strait from here (or in front of your room, if you choose sea view cottage). And... More
