We stayed here in January. The rooms are really big and the open bathroom is amazing. The stuff is friendly and they clean up every day. The pool is also very clean and nice and you can use it when ever you want to! The only negative thing was the wifi... You can use it only in the 2 front... More

Stayed here with my brother and couldn't say a bad thing about it. Staff were friendly and helpful. Lauren the manager was awesome and helped me out anywhere I needed no dramas. Location perfect close to nightlife and far enough away to relax. Rooms and bathroom clean. Pool is clean but not needed with the beach 2 steps away. Highly... More

We had two pool view and 1 garden view bungalows. All three were spacious and tiled with nice outdoor bathrooms with toiletries. The water pressure was weak, but the water was fresh, so we couldn't complain! Bath and swimming towels were provided. We had a nice veranda with chairs and a coffee table. The loungers on the beach were plentiful... More

We stayed at Bale Sampan for nine days, so we got to see every bit of it. First of all, it checks off everything you'd want in a resort on the island; - Located close, but still tucked away enough from bars/restaurants to be quiet - Swimming pool - Large breakfast with many choices - Great private beach with one...

Its cosy and nice .... a little away from the main noisy street but i guess thats the good part where you have good sleep etc. At the same time, the outdoor toilet is quite nice however do not get a shock if you do see something crawling out near your bathing area :P

Such a beautiful place! I can't recommend staying here enough! The bungalows are amazing and set back far enough from the main road that is really quite peaceful. Staff are very attentive and they understand English really well. Pool is awesome and the food at the cafe is great. Love the funky artwork!
