We stayed in The Banyumas Residecnce for 2 nites before moving to this villa which cost 3 times more and had a pvt dipping pool (1 swing of your arms & you reach the other side).
IMHO, The villa is kind of old. The freezer part of the fridge is full of frost. For those not picky type, this is ok.
The villa is clean and the pool is nice. The pump for the pool will stop at 8pm and start at 10am. The pool is level and if you are about 160cm, even if you tiptoe, your toes also can't touch the floor. The water is not cold.
The hot water in the bathroom is not warm enough.
The reception office is just only one clerk and can fit max of 4 persons. It is smaller than the bathroom.
They provide free pick up around the hotel area. The driver will charge a little more than the taxi (which i feel is reasonable but i didnt use as I wanted to check whether the rate is ok). For eg. they will ask for Rp50K to Discovery Mall at Kuta but a cab in a jammed road will cost about 40K.
There is no phone in the room. They will give you a functionable mobile phone and you use this to communicate with the reception.
They will photocopy ALL your passports but will not take any deposit or charge slip. They will only charge you upon checking out. Perhaps i use asiaroom tat's why they dont take deposit. But i also use asiaroom for Banyumas and they collected 2 days of rent upon checking in. --puzzled--
The hotel is about 200m from the main road. If the hotel's car is not around, you have to walk out but the road is paved. The big building (a new hotel) that most reviews talked about has completed construction and is in the final stage of decorating. However, there are new construction coming up...
I was unlucky as someone had booked my room and i couldn't extend the checkout time of 12noon. I had to rush back to check out. They allowed us to keep our luggage there and we picked up again at 7pm before leaving to the airport. If you need to stay in another room from 12pm to 6pm, the charge is USD50. The 'bellboy' is very helpful. He even helped us carried the luggage to the taxi even though we were no longer their guests.
They will provide 'Aqua' drinking water. However, they forgot to replenish the water on the 2nd day. I had to call to ask and they gave us another brand of water (Club) which taste salty.
The breakfast was ok. We had fried rice and chicken meat ball soup. The food is not hot when served. The yogurt with fruit is nice.
