The pictures on their website might be a bit misleading. Just as their claim of being just besides the beach. The room given to me required refurbishment and had a musty smell whereas the main shopping area as well as the beach is a good 10-12 minute walk away. The hotel swimming pool looks massive only in the pictures. It is in fact pretty small.
Now to the good part:- Its a short drive from the airport, the breakfast has a good spread of european food and the staff is friendly. Since my stay was for only a couple of nights, I found myself leaving the hotel very early in the morning and returning back only late at night- all I needed was a comfortable bed for a good night's rest. For that, this hotel was wonderful value for money.
If I return to Bali, I will look around for some better options situated closer to the beach. However, for those on a budget trip, this hotel is not a bad option at all!
TIP: Don't let the hotel's concierge trick you into accepting an expensive activity package (rafting/trekking etc). You will get much better deals in the market area if you talk with the guys at the 'Tourist Info booth'.
