Booked directly with the hotel who didn't require any payment or credit card details in advance, just an email a few weeks beforeand to confirm the booking. They offered an airport transfer for 15USD, but I instead opted for an airport taxi for 95000Rp - the taxi didn't have any problem finding the place once I told the driver the street name.
The hotel is about halfway down Jl Pantai Sindhu, just opposite the White Sands bar. Check in went smoothly and the staff were very friendly, no welcome drink was offered. We opted for the upstairs deluxe room, which was nice and spacious with high ceiling, a very comfortable bed, personal electronic safe, flat screen TV with plenty of channels, small fridge (no drinks provided). The bathroom was a decent size with a large walk in shower, no shampoo/shower gel was provided. Towels and bedding were changed daily and unlike the previous Tripadvisor I thought the room was kept quite clean. On a couple of occasions though we returned to the room to a slightly drainy smell, not sure if this was from the water used to mop the floor. There was a nice little balcony outside the room with a couple of chairs and a table which you could enjoy late afternoon sun from.
The hotel itself is in a narrow walled plot, with a two storey block of rooms at one side, the reception opposite, then a kitchen area/pool table/seating area. At the end of the plot is a nice enough pool with sunbeds below and on a mezzanine. Pool towels are provided on a table next to the pool.
As many previous reviewers have mentioned, no breakfast is provided, but take a walk down the street the 100 metres to the beach and there you will find Luhtu's Coffee Shop, Rosetta's etc where breakfast is quite cheap.
Sunbeds can be rented on the beach, we opted to rent them at Andjani for 50000Rp for 2 beds and a parasol.
There is a decent little laundry service offered in an electrical shop just opposite the hotel next to the White Sands.
We arranged a late check out with no problem and at no cost, but the hotel was fairly quiet.
Overall, a decent enough little hotel.
