We didn't actually stay in Feb 2010 but we are really slack in writing a review. This is a year late but we stayed here for over a week when we spent Christmas and New Year in Bali last year.
We were looking for a largish room that could accommodate us and our two boys (aged 14 and 12 then) without having to pay "villa" prices. They were able to give us their largest room which could easily fit in a couple of extra cots. Great arrangement!
The place is a bit out of the way, but as we rented a car most days that wasn't a problem. You do appreciate being away from rowdy Kuta and Legian at the end of he day.
The best part of the hotel was the really helpful staff that run it. They really go out of their way to try yo make your stay a very good one, and it was!
