I'll start with the good points in this hotel. Central location in seminyak, great customer service, good choice of room options, secure site, fantastic spa, reasonable prices in the restaurant. Free filtered water fountain which is bliss in a place with dodgy water. Royal villa is a great size with some special offers currently on web. iPod doc provided which is always a good touch and pool was very nice. All staff fantastic, very helpful with great English (always embarrassing when we realise another culture that can speak 3 languages fluently vs our 1). Do a day trip, talk to airport pickup driver for reasonable prices.
Most of the bad points apply to Bali in general so don't let these put you off as in my opinion this hotel is a good choice in anyone's book.
The quality of food in the restaurant is average, the in room BBQ also falls into this category. The royal villa in which we stayed really needs a fan or aircon in the open living room as it can be quite toasty in the evening. Lots of mosquitoes, lizards and even spotted a rat. This is typical of Bali from what I can tell so we weren't put off. The open bathroom isn't pleasant and smells a bit. No gym but spa makes up for it.
