“Great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I must say these Villas are very tired and unloved. Calcimine is all over the sandstone, with a bit of a clean with a high pressure hoser it would be gone, paint chipping off the walls, no bed head which means the pillows end up on the floor. The rusty old pool filter cover is a disgrace, its noisy most nights. I expected a bit better.

Thank you for your review which is very much appreciated and I am sorry to hear we did not meet your expectations.

I do note your comments on the villa’s looking tired. Re-painting of the villa’s and treatment to the sandstone is a constant and ongoing program throughout the year due to the climate we experience in Bali. Please rest assured that we do wish to ensure all our guests enjoy their stay in Bali and at bvilla. It is with feedback such as your own that we will continue to improve on the points you have raised.

I can advise that new pool filter covers have been ordered some time ago and we are waiting for delivery as we speak and I hope it will not be much longer before the existing ones are replaced.

In addition to the works mentioned above, I should also advise that over the past months we have installed new large refrigerators in all villa’s, new air-conditioning in most villa’s where required, new stoves and kitchen cabinets have also been installed and new lounge cushioned seating and new swimming pool furniture mattresses were delivered in early June and further plans are in place for additional enhancements to our villa’s.

Thank you again for your feedback
Sincerely yours
David

We went to Bali in May 2013 for our Honeymoon. We stayed here for 5 days in a 1 bedroom villa. The room was huge, the bathroom too. The pool was of a good size but could have been cleaner sometimes. Very friendly staff, but sometimes their English wasn't that good. But they really should replace a few things, because they're dated: sheets, mirror in the bathroom,...
Breakfast is OK.
Only thing I missed: sun beds by the pool.

Many thanks for your Trip Advisor review and your feedback which is very much appreciated.

I can advise that since you stayed, our new pool furniture mattresses have arrived and have been installed in all villas and we have taken additional steps for ensuring pool cleanliness also.

New linen is also on order and expected shortly.

Thank you again for your feedback.

We stayed here for 3 nights in 1 bedroom villa. Was an excellent layout and fantastic private pool. The bedroom was huge, also the bathroom. The lounge and kitchen area was lovely, could have done with a bit more of a clean in the kitchen. Full size fridge was very helpful. Loved the friendly staff and was excellent to start the day with breakfast freshly cooked at our villa, can recommend the Nasi Goreng! Felt very secure and safe, was only a 2 min walk to the beach and 5 min walk to she shops. Very relaxing place to stay. Would come again.

This villa looks really nice and really it was, only a couple of things that weren't up to par, and that was the cleanliness mainly in the bathroom, The floor was never mopped, and the towels were discoloured. Also the staff failed to put water in the rooms, and there should have been a big fan in the outside area. By the end of our holiday their wasn't much thought put into the cooking of our breakfasts, but I must say their shoes were comphy.

Friendly staff who is extremely helpful. Pictures of the villa is exactly how it looks, dont expect too much. But is within walking distance of the beach and main road. Despite being located right in front of a road, it still feels secluded.

This was our second stay here at bvilla seaside and we love it. The beautiful villa's and our pool was huge, it was clean, and the free breakfast cooked in our room was such a lovely way to start the day! Divine all round. The pictures on the website are true to life too! I am an interior designer and loved the design and layout.

The staff are so warm and accommodating - nothing is too much trouble. We love the free car service - we travelled with a large group of friends who stayed all over seminyak and one night all our friends visited us and they happily dropped us all off to 2 different locations. The next night we requested a table for 9 @ sardine which our staff booked and they even organized a large car to transport us all, as they thought all our friends would need a ride too - what exceptional service! All of our friends were very jealous of the villa and all said they would book here next time.

The location is wonderful, a short stroll to eat street, 100m to grocer &grind for our morning coffee and 100m to bodyworks, as well as being so close to many great restaurants & bars that we could walk to like potato head and kudeta, or a metered taxi ride is generally only .70c!!!

I would highly recommend these villas for a stay in seminyak!!

The villas are approx 12 years old and are showing a lack of regular maintenance. The shower head was ready to burst at the seams and the shower floor was mouldy. All limestone tiles are deteriorating and fixtures and fittings such as the cooking /sink area are run down. Also there is a lack of sunbeds and somewhere comfortable to lay outdoors. During our stay the hot water service burst and was not fixed for 3 days. We did however negotiate a late checkout for this inconvenience.

On the plus side, the villas are located approximately 200m from restaurant Grocer and Grind, 250m to Laksamana Street and 350m to La Lucciola. The staff are excellent and extremely attentive, speaking good english and cooking a good breakfast.

It would be suggested that reasearch is undertaken by anyone reading this as to other options for this value/costs in the area. Of which there are literally 100 within 500m.

Room Tip: One bedroom villa cost USD$270 per night. It would be suggested that reasearch is undertaken by anyo...
