Mekar Jaya is located Right in the centre of Kuta, hidden in An alleyway, i found it because of a Blue sign above that is hung above the Mini Mart. The complex itself is nice and quiet with a Decent amount of green and of course the swimming pool, which is nice. The room i had was without AC, but... More

The best place in center of Kuta for this money. Good space with green grass and swimming pool. Place for breakfast has Wi-Fi, tables and chairs so you can use it if you need to work on laptop. Very simple but clean rooms. Polite and good stuff.

I have been to this hotel several times during my visits to Bali, and I never get bored of it. It has a swimming pool and serves breakfast in the mornings, and it's also close to the beach. It's close to Legian street, and close to the shopping venues. Definitely would stay more nights there when I come back to... More

I arrived late in the evening and was a bit com boggled after 36 hours of travel time. However the staff was helpful and immediately available. I had one of the "basic" rooms so for those of you that don't know what that means: come prepared! You will need a towel, toilet paper and the ability to shower without hot... More

We stayed at this Hotel in the high season for 6 days. When we arrived we were shown to our room, which basically was the only contact we had with the staff. The room was spacious, with a great double bed and a nice balcony, with view over the garden. The bathroom was fine, but it was only cold showers,... More

The first room I was offered had a BIG chunk broken off the lavatory and the walls of that room was so dirty. The toilet seat and floor were all stained yellow and it was very scary to pee even. But then they moved me to a different room and it was so much better. The place is pleasant actually.... More
