I only stayed 2 nights this time in the standard double with shared bathroom which is on the second floor overlooking the surf break. It hadn't changed much in 2 years and is still one of the coolest hang out breakfast and sunset bar straight overlooking the take-off spot. Room was simple, fan, bed and mosquito net, and cleanliness of bathroom good enough for the price. Restaurant food for price and service is better than expected. I would go back for short stays on a swell.
I must admit the food was good and the view was great but all the establishments there have the same view. BUT the beer was warm, not even close to cold, there is no wifi and it’s a cash only establishment. Staff didn’t seem too fussed when I mentioned the beer was warm either, just a nod and a smile. Pretty poor really, try somewhere else.
After braving the steps down to Bingin beach we decided to have a Bintang and snack to watch the surf and sunset. Kelly is a rustic little spot with a balcony overlooking the surf. The drinks and food were good - the staff were friendly. Recommended as a place to relax and watch the surf
Great food, local and western meals. On the 1st level, great lunch Go upstairs to the 2nd level and enjoy cold beer and great cocktails and watch the sunset and relax. Mask Goreng was fantastic..............
Ordered lunch and beers then decided on a second beer. Suddenly the guy behind the counter started yelling to the waitress in Balinese. She informed us the second beer would cost 65k, we'd paid 35k for the first one. When I fronted the guy about the price he was instantly apologetic. Don't mind paying a fair price for a fair deal but this was such a blatant attempt at a rip off it was embarrassing for the place. Had planned to go back sometime but will certainly never set foot in the joint again. Watch what they charge you!
