The rooms are nice but this where the good things end: the hotel has no beach and snorkling is nearly impossible due to high waves on the reef. The staff is clueless and does not speak English even though the hotel pretends to be of international standing.
Finally: the food is horrible and made me sick. I threw up all night. My girlfriend dodged the bullet by simply not eating what was served (which proves that women are smarter than men).
Cherry on the cake: the hotel staff does not know how to handle a VISA card except for trying to overcharge by 3%! This is uncommon for high end hotels in Indinesia.
