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

We really surprised when we came to this hotel because we didn't expect that it will be this good! The hotel was rather small (they only have about 16 cottages) but very lovely. It has a view heading toward Bali Strait and you can see West Bali National Park from your room. Although the building's rather old (it was built... More

The hotel is located next to a busy road so take earplugs for the night It has a nice pool and a fantastic sea view on Bali shores. The Room is okay, but old. A lot of mosquitos so bring your repellent! The breakfast is very simple and barely enough.

GENERAL Nice enough place in an inconvenient location. All the services worked properly and the staff found us a great guide and vehicle for our midnight Kaweh Ijen trip. Attached restaurant had good food at a reasonable price. The only thing really wrong is that the hotel is far from the town (but not so far from the sleepy northern... More

a peaceful place to stay and the perfect base for kawah ijen and the ferry to bali. the rooms are spacious and clean, the staff very friendly. they helped us organizing our trip...and even drove us to the ferry without taking money.
