“family run hotel”
Reviewed September 4, 2007

stayed here in July 2007, rooms were very clean and tidy, food very good, pool very clean, not shortage of sunbeds, children are made very welcome plenty of sites to see, very hilly no good if you have a walking problem, go through the gardens and you will come to a bar called mombassa which is owned by the hotel, the sea is about 40 metres from the hotel.

Stayed July 2007

We stayed at the Bali star in june and our holiday was fantastic.The hotel was very clean and all the staff were very helpful. The surroundings was surreal, although there are quite a few hills which may not suit everyone, some say a car is advisable to get around the island. The only downfall was the food was not to our expectations, and we could see no effort from the catering side or the owners to do any thing about the vast ammount of flies that were all over the food, however meals out were very cheap and very nice so dont let this put you off the Bali star. Fantastic hols and we will certainly be returning.

This hotel was wonderful. Booked a week's holiday from 5 June to 12 June 2007 through Thomas Cook. We had not heard of this resort at all but my fiance likes the Greek Islands so we booked on the spot. We had a lovely big room with a sea view, with the sea only being a minute's walk away. Excellent. The hotel was lovely, pretty quiet when we were there but that was what we were looking for. The pool was nice, warm in the afternoon from the sun. You could not fault the staff in any way. Everyone was smiling and friendly. Food was really nice with plenty of choice - we went half board so breakfast and dinner included. For breakfast you also had the choice of a full British Breakfast at no extra charge. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go back there. Bali itself was also lovely, clean streets, bright flowers. If you could not be bothered walking, there is a small road train, which you can tour the resort in, taking an hour all round at 5 euros per person, well worth it to take in the lovely scenery. We also took a boat (The Posiedon) trip from Bali to Rethymnon. We were away from 10am to 6pm at night - we had 4 hours in Rethymnon, swimming in a lovely bay, pirate caves and then for an hour in Panormo (beautiful Greek village). Well worth it.

  • Liked — Nice relaxed atmosphere
  • Disliked — No comfortable chairs in room

I stayed there for three weeks last September on my own as part of a Christian holiday club - Mastersun. The hotel owners - Giorgio and Demetri were welcoming from the start and the atmosphere all holiday was relaxed and friendly.

The warm (sun-heated) pool was lovely, and with the beach a couple of minutes walk away, it was ideal!

There was plenty to do for someone who wants to be by the pool or on the beach, but look around the area too - by foot, or by car. And there are regular buses to the main cities. I took a couple of trips that were organised by the company...including walking the Milli Gorge - a great experience! If you're into painting - bring your watercolour stuff!

The buffet-style service for the evening meal was generally really good, however it didn't really vary very much so after three weeks I was desperate for something else! I love the Greek food tho and there are plenty of restaurants and tavernas around.

The views around the area are awesome...as Bali beach is just one of a number of beach coves within walking distance.

The accomodation was simple but good - with a fridge in the rooms. I had a twin room and knocked the beds together like a double - very luxurious! At one point the shower head cracked on the floor but there were no problems about getting it fixed and it was done the same day. Honestly is always the best policy! The receptionist's husband was a masseuse, so I booked a back massage about once a week - an excellent added luxury!

Considering I work for myself on a freelance budget, I didn't have a huge amount of money to spend...but what I did spend on was reasonable and worth it!

I am going back in May 2006 with the same company!!! Definitely recommended! Enjoy!
