I have to add this review to my account. Blue ocean will always have a special place in my heart. Years ago this was the ideal place to be for a backpacker that I was. Cheap, perfectly located, and no fuss. Outdoor showers and bathroom. Ok. Kind of dirty but ok. Slept with a sheet and my own pillow. Ok.... More

The Ocean Blue is ok for people looking to save some money ideally located and pretty quiet but there are some cleanliness issues but the staff where friendly and I brought my own laundry sheets but other than that it was ok but might try something else next time. You get what you pay for!!

The tables were dirty, the staff rude and the menu overpriced compared to other restaurants in the area. Actually had to request the staff to clean the table, ours was not the only dirty table. The food had better match up to expectations. The location is great, right on the beach located with wind blowing through the establishment. Asked for... More

On leaving the Blue Ocean, the guy we traveled to Ubud with said, "I think they're still using the same bar of soap they were using 20 years ago." I was shocked that he had actually been given soap, but then realised it was an allegory. Toilet paper, a couple of frayed towells, and sleeping sarongs were provided, but they... More

Don't expect to much of the rooms but the rooms are big and are kept clean every day. Bathroom is old but has warm water. If you want moee service just ask with a smile. I changed rooms to get a klamboo and got the best room with free wifi from neighbouring restaurant (room 4). The big plus is the... More

(25$) But rooms are dirty, bathroom equipment is rusty. We had a very bad expirience on the checkout: We ordered a room for 200 000 a day ,... More

The bungalow rooms here are quite old, but bathroom and main room have lots of space, a lockable wardrobe (with your own padlock) and daily service, including replacing towels. You are metres from the sea, although with no views. I had a beautiful frangipani tree outside my bungalow, number 8, so filled my room with fallen flowers. The staff are... More
