My first thought on entering the gate of Villa Poppy was "what an Oasis", after the hustle and bustle of Kuta (where we had just left) it was lovely to walk into such peace and calm.
Although it is getting old and a bit tired Villa Poppy has the personality and charm that I expected to find on my first trip to Bali. Ayu and Ely cared for my family beautifully from cooking, cleaning, washing and shopping to running out to get some oil to rub on my vomiting son's stomach. Ayu (who spoke the better English of the 2 housemaids) was also very handy in dealing with a persistent driver and the McDonalds delivery man who tried to overcharge my daughter.
The pool and garden were kept well maintained by the security man and we always felt safe knowing that there was someone outside the gate all night.
A few reviewers mention the noise from the nightclub which I could hear every night but I never found it a problem as once my head hit the pillow I was asleep and my family the same so I wouldn't let that stop you staying here. Maybe if you are a light sleeper ear plugs might help?
The only downside for us was the 10 -15 minute walk to the beach, if beaches are your thing and you have small kids and a bit of stuff to carry then the distance could be annoying. But with the beautiful pool and gardens of Poppy all to yourself the beach isn't really needed.
Our family of 5 loved Villa Poppy, our group of friends staying in the next 2 villas nicknamed it "The Palace" and you really feel special staying there.
