We felt totally mis-led when booking villa coco. We expected a shared kitchen area and tv and got neither. It is in fact a bedroom that belongs to another villa and a basic one at that. How they can call a bedroom with no faciliites a villa is beyond me. The only thing between you and next doors family area is a door with a huge gap underneath. To make matters worse the guests next door did have a tv and a kitchen area and were very noisy. It was impossible to get an early night for an early start diving with Terminator on full volume booming under nthe huge gap under the door. Even if they had been a quiet family you would have still heard everything. The toilet and shower were actually in the bedroom and not enclosed. If you had an upset tummy you had to shove your partner onto the balcony and then just live with a smelly bedroom. Sorry to be basic but people need to know what they are letting themselves in for. We paid $100 for this room and it was the worst room for value during our stay in Bali. The room had one open shelving unit and no where to hang any clothes. It had an old noisy fridge stocked with drinks to purchase but glass to drink them from. There was a tiny shared kitchen area for the whole complex with a tatty and limited selection of mugs etc that felt a bit like being in a youyh hostel and a very small plunge pool, both at the bottom of approx 120 steps. Basic is the only way I can descibe Villa Coco - no glasses for cleaning your teeth etc, no bottles of complimentary water - no free wifi - extremely limited furniture - no safety deposit - no TV - all the things we enjoyed in Bali for considerably less than the $100 we paid for 'Villa Coco'
Did we have a view - yes, but I feel the owner / management of playgrounds is being greedy and mis-leading and banking on people paying for the view. For what they are charging it is a mistake to invest so little in the actual accommodation. Worn out towels and horrible sheets and our room was not serviced once in three days. All in all a huge disappointment. It's a personal choice and if the view means that much to you then book it, as the view was good but the we enjoyed far higher standard of accommodation in Bali for far less.
I did raise my huge disappointment at the time and no one was the slightest bit interested so frankly I'm not interested in any comments they have to make now. They ruined our 3 day stay in Nusa Lembongan and nothing can change that so think carefully before you book.
