“Nice on the outside, disappointing on the inside”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

This nice looking park with small cottages looks nice on the outside. The gardens and grass are well maintained and the cottages look fine from the outside. However, our cottage was not as clean as we would have liked on the inside. Part of the bathroom has an open roof, which allows lizards and bugs to enter. Moreover, the room only has a fan in the wall. Therefore the room is quite hot at night. The television was old and featured few english spoken channels. Finally, the breakfast buffet was very limited.

This hotel was spoilt by the arrogant staff, poor food and very expensive drinks.

Pro: friendly staff, acceptable food, big swimming pool
Cons: ants everywhere (even in bed), dirty rooms, dirty shower
Honestly I'd rather sleep on a bench outside then ever to return to this hotel. The only reason many people stay here because of tour operators booking a resting place between bromo and Bali.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

The cottages are located in a nicely layed out park, adjecent to a cacao and coffee plantation. Not all cottages have AC. Big swimming pool. Close to big road, staff is about the slowest in indonesia (which says something). Mediocre food, breakfast acceptable. A lot of noise from the big road and tens of mosques around. Good for an overnight stay from Bromo to Bali, not recommended for more then 1 night ...
