I stayed for 3 nights at Bloo Lagoon in April 2010. I had been travelling around Bali for almost one month and stayed in a number of different places ranging from quite cheap and basic to 5 star. This eco resort hotel is way overpriced, I managed to negotiate a lower price as it was the low season and after 3 days I was pleased to leave and felt it a waste of money. The pool is quite nice however it is more geared for children and I cannot imagine at peak season and trying to have a quiet swim! The warung by the pool was nice for very basic fresh food, again it was overpriced for the food offered. I have to say my Villa was very dirty even though it was cleaned each day. It was obviously done at a superficial level each day when it really needs a serious spring clean!! All the coffee cups were just so filthy as well as the cultlery, I could not use them. I live in the country and am used to living with some level of dirt and insects and animals, however when a green tree viper was delivered ( alive) to my villa by the local cat I was perturbed. The staff removed it ( without harm) however the staff and management never said a word to me about it? I was very disappointed with this resort and would add that the massage I received left a lot to be desired I had a better one on the beach for half the price. Finally I would like to say that I was very upset that upon checking out of the hotel I was not reminded by staff that I had my passport in the hotel safe and left it there. I returned to stay in Ubud and called as soon as I realised I had left it there. The hotel was most unhelpful, the staff said no one was comming to Ubud even though they have a sister resort in Ubud and regularly transport people to and from Ubud. I called every day for 2 days and finally went to the sister resort to see if something could be done! The manager there said that no one was comming to Ubud but when I finally offfered to pay someone, he prompty said yes someone would deliver it. I had to pay 200,000 rp and have since found out that a taxi would have deliverd it to the place I was staying at in Ubud for less that 100,000. I was given no receipt when I handed over the $ and felt that the staff just pocketed the money. So all in all I did not enjoy my stay at Bloo and could not recommend it to anyone. I hope that the management take note of my experince with my passport and adgust their attitude to guests who have issues such as this. However Padangbai is a lovey spot with great snorkling and warungs to eat at.
