“Another good friendly stay here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

This is our third stay at this hotel, and the first under the new ownership. We were here over the Christmas period and were particularly impressed by the free beer in the afternoon and the Christmas evening meal put on in the dining room. The staff did an amazing job. The rooms are comfortable, the air con works well. The bathrooms are a little tired but apparently plans to upgrade these are in train. Sun beds by the pool, cold bintang and friendly staff. A good location at the civilised end of town. The dining room is too dark at breakfast but the food reasonable. We will be back.

This was my first time in Bali and my first gay only accommodation. I had much trepidation when my partner suggested we go to a men only hotel, sadly, my mind boggled with negative stereotypes. Spartucvs couldn't have been better at shattering that misconception.
The owners were friendly but professional. We stayed for 10 days and the staff were impeccable. Every one of them was always only too happy to help with their beautiful Bali smiles. Nothing can be faulted: room service, breakfast, organising tours, Craig the owner even did our airport transfer (thank you!). The owners are into their first year or so of rebuilding the business and I really look forward to going back to see what improvements they've done. I can easily recommend this place. On our last night, half the guests had become friends and we all went out to a local warung together. We met some really good people that we will likely keep in touch with. It was a relaxed and friendly place. You won't regret booking here.

My partner and i stayed at Spartacvs for ten nights in mid Oct . From the quick easy check-in with a welcomed welcome drink to the time we checked out, we where made to feel at home and very welcome. They had issues with the pool for a couple of days, but organized for us to use a pool at a close by hotel and shouted us few drinks. For what we paid it was excellent value the rooms where clean and well serviced daily.We enjoyed the garden, restaurant ,pool and great service. The location is close to the beach and restaurants . We are already planning to book at Spartacvs for early next year

Our first visit here was in 2011 and we were glad with the hotel. Next time in 2012 we again stayed here but decided not to do it again until the renovation. Too expensive for the old rooms, old beds, old TV and so on.

The Spartacvs Hotel is not the Hilton Hotel. If I wanted a Hilton; I would have booked a Hilton. The Spartacvus Hotel is a dreamy little hotel filled with Flowers, beautiful rooms, and beautiful people. I did stay in Superior Pool 1 which is one of the largest rooms and I highly recommend it for the space and the location near the pool. Craig the owner is fantastic and took me and another guest to the gay bars for our 1st time. You have to go! I won't tell you about the drag shows but you must love Whitney Houston. Happy Hours were fantastic with cocktails at the pool talking to other guest from Australia, Germany, New Zealand, Belgium, and of course other guys from the USA. The Breakfast was made to order but do eat the Bali Breakfast. The cooks and waiters make it such a pleasure; it's hard to leave to eat somewhere else. Location to the beach is exceptional and there are nice restaurants and shopping close by. With all of this said; I returned home with over half of the money I brought to spend so going to Bali is very affordable. Spartacvs arranged 2 tours for me using one of their staff and their own private car. Do not look at the traffic and do not book a tour during the week. Motorbikes passing on both sides and in front of the car will make you cringe. The whole experience was magical for me. The staff was exceedingly friendly, professional, and made the place look like a diamond. I was amazed on how many guest were repeat customers and their willingness to point out the best places to eat and go shopping. This speaks volumes in itself on the quality that Spartacvs represents and delivers. I highly recommend Spartacvs and will stay there on my next trip.

Room Tip: Superior Pool 1 is the best room, near everything, overlooks the pool. The rest of the rooms are ve...

It was our first stay in an "Only Men" and "100 % Clothing Optional" hotel. And we were surprised! The staff members were really very friendly and also the owner, Craig, was so accomodating and helpful to us. Since we're a Gay couple we felt very safe at SPARTACVS' and met some new friends in this particular and peaceful atmosphere. We do recommend it!

We had booked 12 nights and temporarily moved out on day three as the pool was a disgusting green. Returned after three nights to a clean pool and lots of excuses but watched it deteriorate over the next days. We felt sorry for the pool guy who fussed over the pool all day but quite frankly it’s obviously the tired equipment that is the problem.
There are so many unaddressed issues at this hotel we felt it was like an episode of Faulty Towers.
At best the room cleaning is hit and miss. We ended up asking them to clean the bathroom each day like it was an option.
The towels are old and one of our sheets had a big tear in it.
The breakfast is a nice inclusion but at $110 plus a night it’s expected. What’s not expected is packaged fresh fruit juice and the self serve element of the breakfast set up.
The whole set up is tired, its over priced and tacky.
It would be nice to think this hotel is servicing a niche market not ripping them off. Stop with the excuses and start delivering.
