We stayed at 3V Kerobokan for 6 days in April 2012 and by far this would have to be the BEST family Bali accommodation that we have found.
We had a 2 bedroom villa well laid out and had everything we needed. We were travelling with our 9yo and 6 yo boys and it was a nice change for them to have their own room . It also had a kitchen (in case we felt like cooking). There was also a water cooler in our villa which was very convenient as our trips to Bali always involved buying bottles of aqua. We didn't use the spa as the pool was just outside our villa and it was a good size.
The staff at 3V were very friendly and service was great.
Breakfast was included in our package when we booked with Wotif. As 3V was not a big establishment there was no buffet breakfast. Instead we were offered a choice of American, Continental or Indonesian breakfasts. We sampled all three during our stay and they were all fine.
3V also had a kid's club that was usually free. Unfortunately as it was school holidays the kids club did not have the usual free activities. Instead indoor soccer, gymnastics and a couple of excursions were on offer. Only one of our boys was interested in the soccer so we enrolled him in the activity. The boys also went on a jungle trek excursion on the 5th day. This was very well organised and our sons had a ball. The Balinese are just great with kids.
3V would be great if you want to keep fit during your holiday. There was a variety of group exercise on offer, including yoga and Les Mills gym classes. I went to a couple of the yoga classes which I found very challenging and seemed to be aimed at advanceI was used to. I also visited the gym a few times and found it to be well equipped with new machines. The menu at the restaurant also had a lot of healthy food and drinks.
The only downside with 3V was that it is a fair way from restaurants, shopping, and kids' activities. By taxi it took us a good 30-50 mins drive, depending on traffic. The beach was also about 20 mins away by car. They did offer a daily shuttle service at 11 am and a return at 4.30pm. Having stayed in Bali hotels that were conveniently located to shopping and the seaside we found the distance a bit inconvenient at times.
3V had complimentary WiFi in the villas and restaurant. The wifi connection in the villas was often slow or dropped out. The wifi in the restaurant was more reliable.
3V also offered massage in-house. A lady by the name of Layla gave very nice relaxing massages at very reasonable prices.
Overall we were very satisfied with 3V. The staff were very friendly, rooms were
comfortable and well cleaned. We would consider staying at 3V again.
