We were shown to our $60 room (certainly at the lower end of their range) to find that it didn't have a balcony - or indeed a window - despite being promised such things by the description of that particular room on their website.
We kicked up a fuss and were upgraded to one of their high end rooms; it would have been on the order of $150 per night judging from their website. It wasn't nearly as nice as the $25 room we had at Ubud Bungalow the night before.
The place was completely empty. It quickly became apparent why.
The upgraded room was OK. Nothing particularly special, lots of strange (barely functional) touches and a severe dearth of anything remotely comfortable to sit on.
The location isn't much good - you probably need to rent a scooter to be able to do anything convenient/interesting/fun. It's a rather long walk along a main road into Ubud town.
The pool area is hilarious - keep your eyes on the uneven ground or you will probably break an ankle.
Only saving grace was the views over the rice field - that was quite nice. But obviously you need one of their vastly overpriced rooms with views for that.
