This is an older hotel but it is clean and the staff are very freindly. It is definatly a solid 3.5 star hotel but perfect for the price and surrounds. We got bumped to this hotel because the one we wanted was booked out. It's located about 10 minutes walk to Kuta and all the restaurants and about the same to Legion. You are not in the middle of the nightlife area's but far enough for piece and quiet. There is not much near the hotel except a small food court and McDonalds so if you wanted a restaurant to eat you had to walk quite a bit each night. For some reason the hotel restaurant was almost empty each night. The beach is just across the road which was good but the road was sometimes difficult to cross but generally was not such a problem. Breakfast was good and the selection was varied. The breakfast area overlooks the beach but the local authorities have recently built a wall along the length of beach from Kuta to Legion so the views are not as good as mentioned in earlier reviews. Staff at breakfast were very freindly but not too attentive as you had to continually ask them for a refill of coffee or tea. Everything else was self serve from the buffet. The rooms were clean and spacious. The aircon was quiet and worked really well. There was mention of the Hot water being slow to come through but we found it was fine after 1 or 2 minutes, not 15 as mentioned in other reviews but that was our rooms. We had the standard Delux rooms in the 600 wing. I would stay here again if required but I would add that there is a huge Sheraton hotel complex just starting to be built next door. There are these massive cranes currently working around the clock. Once the complex starts to go up I would imagine that it may be more noisy and dusty. At the moment it's just a hole in the ground so not too bad and currently quiet. They did have Wifi around the hotel and we managed to have a connection in our rooms. not super fast but ok for what we needed. It also was free. The pool area was old as expected but with kids water is water. The only problem here was that there was not enough pool chairs in the area and not much shade in the middle of the day. As I said I would stay here again if it was a family holiday but If I went again to Bali with my partner I would probably look around for something more modern.
