Good central place to stay. Basic rooms but great pool. Very quiet from the street when you go into resort grounds. Beautiful gardens. Step outside into the street & you have multiple choices of really good restaurants & cafes & bars some with live music. Thoroughly loved our stay & will definitely come back to matahari bungalows. Breakfast very average... More

The room seemed okay at the first sight. But the Toilet flush didn't work - we told the staff, someone took a look at it but didn't repare anything. There was no hot water available (but we didn't need it anyway). The shower had absolutely no power - we needed 5 minutes to get almost all shampoo out of our... More

Welcomed nicely by staff, welcome drink and very friendly, then were shown to our room. We had to walk down a path through lots of trees/shrubbery to our room, which was awful. The room was dirty, the doors didn't lock properly, there were more than 30 large black and white mosquitoes in the room (we squashed about 10 and there... More

We stayed here in July 2015, then again in September. We have also stayed in a number of locations in Bali. Matahari Bungalows offers a great location, great pool area and good clean rooms at sensible prices. It is three star, so don't expect some of the trimmings that you would get at other resorts where you pay 3 or... More

This place is incredibly deceptive!! The rooms themselves are super run down - electricity constantly shutting off (which means air con often not running). Very shabby no frills or storage for your bags - and bathrooms that are gross and dirty. The mosquito nets they provide you with have lots of holes in them. My friend had a room where... More

Stayed 4 nights at Matahari. It was a standard sort of room, nothing special. The bathroom was unfortunately very damp and did not seem to have any ventilation at all. Because of this, the walls in the shower were miscoloured and looked a bit nasty. The shower had only cold water but that was okay since it was very warm.... More

We landed from the boat and a hotel agent offered to show us this place. We took a horse carriage here for $10 USD for 3 ppl. Worth it in the blazing sun and with luggage. Basic bungalows, showers are outdoors attached to bungalow, breakfast is so-so, but the view is spectacular! Direct access to the beach. We negotiated prices... More

This resort is really a low budget place to stay. We stay 8 nights and 4 of them we had no cold water, which meant no water to flush the toilet. In saying that, they fixed the problem every time we asked. The steps and surrounding tiles around the restaurant and swim up bar were very slippery. A couple of... More
