“Mixed feelings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

I honestly have mixed feelings about this hotel.

The rooms are cozy, nothing in a fancy sort of way but they have two King beds and a balcony on each rooms. Plus they are quite tidy. I see the staff mopping the lobby floor like there's no tomorrow's all day long, so that one's a plus. The location is also very very close to the beach, a lot of hotel guests even walked barefooted to the beach. They even have the local street hawkers parking their carts right smack in front of the hotel lobby.

But during my stay our room's air conditioning was not working properly. We complained to the staff but they said all the other rooms are full. No elevators as well so it's definitely a downside for me as I was travelling with an elderly and two toddlers while our room is located on the second floor. The toiletries are also very minimum.

We ended up moving to another hotel nearby with same price range and better facilities. Not very close to the beach but we had enough swimming during our stay here.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with family

I tried lots hotels in Pangandaran and Laut Biru recommended because quite cleans. Rooms large enough for 4 person/family. They give a gallon of drinking water each rooms, since I have baby, I didn't have to buy extra water to make baby's milk.
Breakfast for taste and variety pretty good.
Position strategic just across the street go to the beach.
Too bad in front the hotel kind chaotic with lots carts selling foods/souvenirs and make the hotel a bit dirty .

Room Tip: 1st floor close the beach quite noisy at night.

My wife and I arrived at the Laut Biru after a short one hour flight from Jakarta on Susi Air rather than a ten hour road trip. The hotel is located right in the heart of town, just across the street from a good stretch of beach, right were we wanted to be.

We walked in without a reservation, but since it was low season and there were very few other guests, we didn't have any difficulty getting a room at a good price. In fact, we were immediately offered a 50% discount off their regular rates.

We stayed for three nights and were happy with our choice. The staff were very accommodating to our needs. The hotel itself is a substantial three story structure with a large swimming pool. Our room was extremely large with a balcony and two comfortable king size beds, a small fridge and a new flat screen TV. It could have used a bit of decoration. There was absolutely no art or anything on the walls, making it a bit plain. While most hotels just supply a couple of bottles of drinking water, each room at the Laut Biru has its own water cooler. A definite bonus.

The air conditioning worked well. Wi-fi in the room was so weak as to be unusable, but it worked fine in the lobby.

There are lots of hotels in Pangandaran, but I think the Laut Biru is one of the better ones.

This hotel rooms are big enough for 4 people. There are 2 king size beds, hot shower, AC, TV and a gallon of drinking water. Laut Biru Hotel have swimming pool and jazzuci. The location of this hotel is very close to Pantai Timur and Pantai Barat. We can walk about 3 minutes to reach the beach.
We can have breakfast in third floor.
I'll recomend this hotel for family traveller or who want to come with friends.

Room Tip: rooms in the first floor, near the swimming pool
