The room was fine, very comfy bed, nice bathroom and plenty of space however the view from the window was onto a huge flapping piece of blue plastic - put up I presume to block the view of the construction work going on outside. It's the first time I have ever stayed in a hotel anywhere where I came back each day to find the curtains closed by housekeeping staff.
The entrance from the road to the hotel is weird and off putting, and the foyer and common areas lacked any oomph. I suppose I am used to staying in Balinese hotels with lots of vegetation, gamelan music (yes, I love it) and a welcoming vibe. The reception staff are lovely.
I suppose the biggest disappointment was the breakfast which most mornings I found to be tasteless and lacking in imagination apart from eggs that can be prepared any way on request. The no-smoking area in the breakfast dining area is far too small and 3 out of six mornings I had to wait quite some time for a table away from all the smokers.
