Recently returned from a one week stay at the Oberoi and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The size of the hotel is perfect and was far from over-crowded, and there was no problem getting sunbeds by the pool each day. The staff are really helpful and the pool-side service is second to none.... they provide chilled water, sunscreen, cool towels, and then hand out fruit kebabs and ice-creams at different points in the day - they even offer to clean your sunglasses! The complimentary afternoon tea, with cakes, fruits, sandwiches, and biscuits is a very nice touch.
The rooms are spacious and in a traditional Balinese style and lovely - especially the bathroom which is huge and very luxurious. (note to the previous reviewer that "prefers the minimalist style" - perhaps you might want to check out pictures of a hotel before booking, rather than making such ridiculous comments about the 'outdated' rooms!). Beds are also incredibly comfortable....
The only down-side is the cost of the food & drink in the hotel - we ate in the restaurant on the first night, and the food was excellent, but our main complaint was the price of the drinks - 45k rupiah for a Bintang is seriously overpriced. However, the food was great and not so highly priced compared to the surrounding restaurants.
The location of the hotel is perfect - it couldn't be better placed. Nextdoor is KuDeTa, which is perfect for lunches and watching the sunsets. Food is high in Bali terms, yet still much more affordable than at the Oberoi - we would especially recommend the salad options for lunch. We also ate in a number of the local restaurants - Trattoria and Wild Ginger and both good and very reaonsably priced, and we loved La Lucciola - a bit hard to find, but nice spot and great food.
We would definitely recommend the Oberoi, and will not hesitate to stay here again when next returning to Bali.
