We stayed here a couple nights and had a great time. The double room was pretty tight with two king sized beds and the bathroom was pretty grotty, but other than that it was just what we required. There was no wifi in the rooms, but that didn't bother us. The complimentary breakfast was nice, along with the pool area,... More

We stayed for four days for our honeymoon. The room was already decorated before we arrived which a nice surprise and they left a basket of fruit for us. The bar staff were always smiling and the manager always checked if we were ok. The advice during stay was immeasurable and the resort is close to the beach, diving school... More

I quite liked this resort. Let's face it, anywhere in Bali or Gili's you're not going to be spending lots of time at the hotel. This place was nice, it's under construction at the moment so it's not the prettiest to look at from the outside. No noise experienced from construction. I do think anytime somewhere is under renos there... More

I stayed here for 5 nights. The room was basic, but completely met my needs. The only complaint I could have is the construction in front, you have to walk down a narrow path to get to the rooms. However, it wasn't that inconvenient and never had a problem with noise. Internet was only in the pool/restaurant area and not... More

Having spoke to all our staff, it seems you did not discuss any of your concerns with them during your stay. In particular your concern regarding bed bugs as this is something we could have investigated at the time. We have since had your room and other rooms at Pesona Resort checked by the pest control company and they did... More

Stayed at Pesona for 4 nights & had a great stay. We were in a little bungalow that was actually quite comfortable & after staying in a couple of big resorts on Bali & Java it was nice to stay somewhere a little more rustic. Our room was nothing fancy, a comfy enough bed, ceiling fan & functional bathroom with... More

Stayed for 2 nights in Pesona, took the Deluxe Bungalow. It was OK... quite spacious, clean, no-frill type of room, and although it was located at the front of the hotel, surprisingly the noise from construction is not audible. However, sounds from the street next to the bathroom can be heard. Didn't try the restaurant, but breakfast is very limited,... More

We stayed here for three nights and really, really enjoyed our time here. The original room that we had booked into wasn't suitable for our needs, and we were rehoused in another room with minimal fuss and maximum courteous efficiency. Reading through previous reviews, I'm not sure why people would refer to this space as "backpacker" style accommodation: the rooms... More
