we were only on Bali in transit to Kanawa for a dive holiday; spent 2 nights at the Gardenia at the start, and one night at the end. I loved this place & would happily spend more time there - would definitely not look around for an alternative if I return to Sanur. The rooms were clean and lovely, the staff extremely friendly & helpful, menu was substantial and the food excellent. Everything is extremely good value for money. Location is convenient & a great massage place is just next door.
It's not a 5* resort - if you're looking for pampered luxury then the Gardenia isn't for you. If you want a local place, comfortable, safe, good food options & a good price then I recommend the Gardenia Guesthouse.
