The hotel is located near the tip of the Tanjungbenoa peninsula and our taxi driver had trouble finding it. We had spent our first two weeks at the excellent Patra Bali Resort in Tuban and Sanur Beach Resort in Sanur so our expectations may have been a little high. There are only a couple of restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the hotel but there are many good ones only a ten or fifteen minute walk away. Our favourite was the Kecak Bali (try the curry chicken!).
Our biggest disappointment with our stay here was the beach. Tripadvisor reviews for most hotels in Benoa have mentioned the amount of boats and watersports but none actually compare to the Ramada which is located in the very centre of it all. The designated swimming area is tiny and shrinks to literally nothing when the tide is out. We had to walk nearly a kilometre to find a decent swimming area.
The hotel pools were fine but the one near the beach did have a constant sewage smell around it. And even though the hotel appeared to be only half full there was not always enough sun chairs available.
The standard room we had was fine and the water pressure in the shower was excellent. The buffet breakfast was also good and the pleasant lady at the egg and pancake station was very nice. The coffee however was terrible.
Overall the hotel is a decent choice but if you want to stay in Benoa and swimming in the ocean is important to you I would recommend the Novotel or Mirage Resorts farther down the peninsula.
