I travel to Bali at least 3 times a year and decided to test out The Stones in Legian. Overall this hotel is very good, excellent service, great breakfast and lovely food options provided poolside and in the restaurants during the day. I did discuss a few concerns I had during my stay with management and did feel they took on board what I had to say and I will see how things go the next time I stay. People need to understand that this hotel will be considered by many to be located in Kuta so you need to keep this in mind. Access to restaurants may be difficult for some if you wish to walk, as it is not really that close to any restaurants that I would consider going to. Yes you can walk to the Beachwalk, however it is a fair walk to some of the 'old favourites' and as the traffic flows one way it can be expensive (by Bali standards) to catch taxi's). It is not located close to Poppies as some have presumed (including me) although it is in walking distance if you like a long walk. Rooms and room amenities are great and of a high standard. The pool view rooms in the back wing have a lovely view over the pool and some receive the afternoon sun. The back rooms have no balcony and no view however they would be substantially quieter and will be my choice next visit. I did find the pool view rooms noisy due to the entertainment around the pool late afternoon and early evening although I must say most people did not find this an issue. The bath located on the balcony is a little 'odd', advertised as the bath with a view - great if you want to be seen naked by everyone. You have an option to close the curtains and take a bath which I must admit was ok. Room service was one of the issues I raised with management so I am looking forward to some changes in regard to accessing via room service, restaurant menu meals, served accordingly. I am hopeful that there have been some changes with regard to some of my concerns and as such I will not go into these at this time. Overall if you are looking for a great little resort with friendly staff, good food and great ambience in the Kuta end of Legian, this is worth a visit.
