“Tourist trap but food OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We knew it was geared for tourists so expectations not high. Was shuttled to the site. Had to pay the $5 admission charge. Place is a bit desolate with some empty lots. Two restaurants. We went to one that served local food. Surprisingly good but expensive even by foreign standards. Had a spa treatment in the Bali Spa...OK but felt a bit dingy!

“Not much there”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We visited the place as there wasn't much to do in our hotel. Place is very quite. It has a couple of spa, some restaurants and some shops. Empty and quite.
