“Very average - could try harder”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

After reading some of the earlier highly positive reivews that raved about this hotel I had high expectations. But let's start with the positives. The hotel is located within easy walking distance of the centre of Seminyak where you will find a profusion of great places to eat and you can shop and shop and shop. The beach is about a 20 minute walk away where you risk life and limb to reach. Pavements are non existent so at times you feel very exposed to all the noisy traffic. Once you get to the beach, its just 'ok'. You just need to ignore the rubbish and broken glass along the way.

Back to the hotel, the communal pool area is really lovely with stunning gardens and it has a real authetic feel. I booked a 'deluxe' room online. It was, sadly, a disappointment. There was nothing deluxe about it except the bathroom was huge. It has a really dated feel about the place and if you like a rock hard bed you will sleep fine.

I noted the towels had seen better days - thread bear and in some cases stained. A telling sign of lack of attention to detail.

I only had breakfast at the hotel - let's say you are better off eating else where. Its not worth the effort and not what you would expect at this price band. There's lots of cool cafes within easy reach.

The staff were very pleasant and welcoming.

If you want a cheap but superb massage try Cool - its five minutes walk away.

There's loads of places to stay - do your research and you will find your idylic hideaway.

Dear Paul P

Thank you very much for your review regarding our Resort room. I'm really happy to hear such a wonderful experience and to be remembered by our guest as we hope to keep serving you at our best again. Our resort still using the Balinese traditional architecture as we believe our guest who comes to Bali along way from their hometown, would definitely experience the authentic Balinese touch during their stay in the island, without forgetting the essential of today's technology which we also provide in our hotel's facilities. Our location is also very strategic with easy access to famous restaurants, pubs, beach, boutique, antique shops, groceries etc. The advice on our breakfast and linens will be a great input for us as i will put it into my attention and make the right adjustment. Last but not least we really appreciate our valued customers like you and therefore we always come up with a new facilities and promotion rates especially for our return customers so please booked through our website and check out for any promotions on going especially for a long stay inquiry. Once again thank you for choosing us for your stay.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

I have mixed feelings about the hotel. Firstly I was expecting something a lot better for the money paid. But Seminyak's accommodation are generally overpriced.
We were upgraded to a Deluxe room which I thought was great! But wasn't.... the room (130) we got upgraded to was on a hidden corner of the hotel with no sun light, no pool views and because of the high humidity of the room's location it had a strong mould smell. Also, the internet did not work on that room.
We asked to be moved to another room and the staff (who were very nice and attentive) could only get another room for us on the following day.
We went to a Superior room (a downgrade) as was our original booking, and we found the room much better that the deluxe. It is basic the same room, but with a smaller bathroom. But the room was great, clean, well lit, and had a nice view of the swimming pool. Internet signal also worked well on this room (225).
The breakfast was pretty disappointing. I stayed in much cheaper hotels in Bali that served a much better breaky.
I wouldn't stay there again for the price of over $90/night. I would price this accommodation at a max $65 for what is provided.

Room Tip: Stay away from deluxe rooms 130 and 131. Get a superior room upstairs, 225 is excellent

I booked what I thought was a new villa but it turned out not to be. When I was shown in to the villa, late at night, after a very trying few days and desperately looking forward to the villa in the photos I was really upset when shown to one I had seen no photos of anywhere.
Not being able to change at that late stage we had to settle for what we were given which is a Deluxe villa, private pool etc. Well of course after a few days it doesn't seem to matter as much as the deluxe villa is very comfortable, roomy and clean. The pool is really big and a lovely ,garden as well out the front. Very private and clean, well looked after by the staff and very handy to Jl. Laksmana and all the restaurants you could want.I would probably be much more careful when booking anywhere next time and speak directly to the front desk and get exactly what I want, but for this trip it was better than I expected and also the spa has lovely girls who make relaxing part of your daily routine very pleasureable.
Your breakfast is cooked in your villa which is nice, by some really lovely girls and it is whatever you order and they do it well. Better than the restaurant but I don't know why. It has no atmosphere whatsoever so stay in your villa.

Room Tip: If you want their best rooms ask for the suites

We stayed at Mutiara for four days and found the service great. The staff was very friendly and always helpful with advice on what to do etc. Also helped use their contacts to book for us. We had 3 days at a standard room and were booked for a villa but they upgraded us too because we'd been staying for a couple of days already. The breakfasts were fantastic and the location was good as it was close to all shops and some of the nightspots.

Recently stayed at the Mutiara in Seminyak. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful and the location is perfect for Jalan Oberoi area and Seminyak Square. Lots on offer in regard to eating and drinking in the area. Pool area very relaxed, although I am not keen on those who are guilty of laying out towels early in the morning and only turning up in the late afternoon!!!!! This happens everywhere and I find it totally unfair, rude and selfish - but here it is more annoying as there is only about 10 beds which means that if you get there after 9.30 there you will probably miss out. On the upside, the pool is very quiet and serene. I had breakfast inlcuded and it was fantastic.

We stayed 12 nights in a deluxe room on the ground floor right by the pool. The room had everything we needed and was cleaned every day to perfection. We found the breakfast fine wih plenty of choices.A highlight was the freshly prepared local juices. As others have said the location was great, 5 min walk to the shops and restaurants and 15 mins to the beach,but still quiet and peaceful. The highlight for us were the fantastic staff. Nothing was any trouble . All went out of their way to help ,answer questions and make our stay enjoyable. Everone always had a smile on their face . One tip I would give is to book with the hotel directly. We paid much more by going through an agent. We certainly will be going back to renew our friendship with the wonderful staff.
