This is a review of hotel Grand Kumala NOT Kumala Pantai.
The location is for me perfect! It's 2 minutes from double six, nearby the beach (5 minute walking) and surfschool (for first-time surfer, this is fantastic). Plenty of shops and laundry around. Lots of food and restaurants (try Warung murah for its desert & juice; the food is not fantastic. For a real budget travellers: try Padang food (Saleko) at the end of double-six: passing the cross and the supermarkt. For $ 1.5 you get really good, plenty, original Indonesian meal).
The staffs are in general friendly, but could be more at the reception. I was asking for a cab because we had an early flight but they were not really helpful about the inside information. It turned out that you can just grab a taxi from the street even at 4.00 o'clock in the morning. I would expect the reception would advise me to do this.
When I made a reservation, it was said that we would get two rooms next top eacht other (I travel with my dad, also). It turned out not the case, which is a bit dissaponted. One room is number 113 (which I liked so much, not being a fussy traveller). The other room is number 104, which is next to site of a construction project. We were warned, which I appreciate, that this room could be noisy and got a discount for it. Luckily, the construction thing was not that bad.
The swimmingpool is lovely (I used the one in front). Enough sun and shade and good place to read (quiet). The breakfast was good enough (better than three brothers, which is after one night I fled to Grand Kumala) and the restaurant site in the back of the garden is very nice. We were quite satisfied with this.
My partner found the hotel can be more clean, especially the bathroom. But it did not bother me. It was clean enough for me and it was a good budget hotel.
I had a good time and I would certainly come back!
Liked: location, garden, breakfast, the pool
Disliked: staff at the reception
