We stayed at Indiana for 3 nights.
The room we stayed in was clean, modernly furnished, had a lovely outdoor sitting area. At night it was quite quiet and the bed is really comfortable. Room service is once a day, yet my complaint would be that they came to clean your room even if you were heading back to it as they were getting started, rather than waiting for you to go to breakfast or out on a tour. Also personal touches like turn-down service, or local snacks on your pillow would go a long way to giving the resort a more personal touch - as is it was very "european" and hands off feeling - i.e. they gave you your space (almost gave it a 4 star for that, but it was exceptional). Room had high quality linens and towels and was all we could want in a room.
There are two pools, one that is near the restaurant and one in the back area. The restaurant one has a view of the ocean, and the other does not, yet the other was more popular since you weren't bothering restaurant patrons. The pools do close rather early (7 or 8 if i remember). There is a bar near the non-restaurant pool. Clean and lots of good sitting areas. Mostly adults (we didn't see very many kids staying at the resort). The resort staff will help set you up with a motorbike for rent. One tip is if you have laundry, you can walk it over to the laundry service (near where the motorbikes is) and pay by the kilo vs going through the hotel (much cheaper).
We ate here 2 of the 3 nights - phenomenal food and we love food! Good wine too. Prices are reasonable and all food is made in the open kitchen on site. Pasta & Gnocci were both amazing! The chef (Clement) was really friendly and made a point to come talk to us both nights and during the day when we were wandering round the resort. His friendliness and welcoming attitude definately merits the 5 stars above. Breakfast was always good too - the fruit plate was large and selections were definitely better than average breakfast options. We also sat in the beachfront bar area and had drinks which were good. The resort is right on the beach and next to the main strip of restaurants on the island.
The spa at the hotel was good - not great. Very noisy because of the location (kids running by), but believe they are building a new one in a quieter area by the pool.
Definitely if you can rent a motorbike and go all over the island and the neighboring island of Nusa Cenida (sp?). There is a lot to see and you will want to do it in a few days worth.
