The Patra Bali is so good for the kids and you. Huge pool and lovely big green grassed area's to relax, Delux suites are just beautiful.

Shuttle bus into Centro or Kuta and a good beach path if you want to walk, only about 10-15 minute walk, wear hats and take some water as it does get hot. Breakfast is fantastic, kids will love the pancakes.

The other choice is the Hard Rock Hotel excellent, great breakfast, great pool but no greenery for the children.

The Dynasty would be my last choice as its got loads of children although a very nice hotel, but to closed in for my liking and its very crowded.

Good Luck

Check out the Holiday Inn Tuban

Its opened early this year and has only had positive reviews. I have booked here.

Its a short walk to Kuta (25mins walk) but far enough away that you can enjoy some time away from the hustle and bustle of bali. Lots of shops and resturants around including a Mall.....

It ticks my boxes in regards to room, pools, beach...There are better in Nusa dua (Laguna is my fave) but for value, service and a great stay, the Holiday Inn may work for you?
