At surface level this is indeed a very cool hotel. There are surf boards everywhere, two iMacs in the open reception for guests to surf the internet, and a nice looking little pool with sun beds around one side.
The downsides though are plentiful enough to keep me from returning.
At the moment there is a large group of tourists here from Hong Kong who have pretty much taken over the hotel. They shout from table to table at breakfast, they shout along the corridors at night, and they scream and shout into the early hours of the morning playing drinking games.
An absence of bliss due to the other guests, but also please be aware that the breakfast is designed for Asian tourists with lots of rice, noodles, porridge. The juice pretty standard fare for hotels like this; cheap and watery.
Off a busy road at least 20 mins from the beach. You nee to rent a bike to stay at this place, unless you don't mind walking along a pot-holed pavement for 20 mins. Renting a bike is fairly cheap anyway, so this isn't such a big deal.
The staff are very pleasant both in reception and in the restaurant, and I can understand that it's not an easy thing for them to cater to the needs of one grouchy tourist (me) in terms of the noise level of the other guests.
Sorry Bliss Wayan, not for me. I'm still here by the way :)
