“Elbow room for grumpy old men”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

My friend and I had never roomed together, so we picked the big suite, at a discount price of 450,000 per night. Well worth it! Plenty of space for two beds plus walking-around room, a separate room for sitting and watching TV, and a balcony.

The big room came with a disadvantage, though: the poor little air conditioner had to work full out to deal with the volume of air. Fighting off the heat of the afternoon is hopeless unless you over-chill the room overnight.

The hotel has a great location, on a quiet stretch of beach, an easy walk along the beach (or road, if you prefer) to the center of town.

Worst feature is the restaurant. Breakfast (free) is mediocre, with very limited selection, low-quality ingredients (even the fresh fruit did not taste very fresh), weak coffee.

And the pool looks nice but after being in the sun all day is not really cool enough to refresh.

Dear Alan Y,
Thank you for taking the time to write a comment.
I remember you've stayed with us, but did not see you grumpy. You understand and informative. I really appreciate it. I just want to say, your stay happened in the month of October, which is the hottest month and dry season. For you, we've installed an additional air conditioner. And also improve the restaurant. I hope your return visit next time. Thank you again,

Stayed there with my friends. We stayed on Deluxe room, in front of the beach.
The room not really good but clean and comfort. With Balinese and old style. We stayed for 2 nights. The staffs were really friendly and helpful. I really like our breakfast. Nasi goreng was really good. On our last day, we saw the dolphins with boat.
This hotel has good swimming pool.

Not to big hotel, with direct access to the sea.
Hotel is not extraordinary, but our rooms was really great (extremely large, modern and clean)
Food was a disappointment compared to all other hotels we had in Indonesia. Breakfast was very limited, and not particularly attractive. Dinner not really good. Only food at pool- or seaside was really adequate.
I received however extremely good feedback concerning the quality of massage !

Thank you for writing a review, which was very useful for our work into the future for better service to the guests. Lovina Beach Hotel is not a big and luxury. It has a class of its own. Being a pioneer establishment, our hotel was designed moderately, maintaining the local culture. Thank you again, and we look forward to your visit again.

We stayed here in August 2013, for a budget hotel it is excellent. The staff were amazing and the rooms were kept very clean. Location was great, right on the beach. The booking process was done online and we had no problems. We will certainly stay here again. Thank you.

Thank you for taking your time to review our hotel.
If you enjoyed your stay with us, it suites my goal. Lovina Beach Hotel is a place at the seaside, the weather is moderate all the year, you can watch the gleaming sunset and the calm breeze. Somewhat wet weather in January-February. Lovina Beach Hotel is an old hotel from 1953 that has been maintained to the touch as the original within the nature environment. Once again I sincerely thank you very much and looking forward to your next visit.

I stayed in Lovina Beach Hotel with my lecturer and colleges during our study tour to Buleleng trip. The front office was so traditional, but when we went to our room, the hotel area quite spacious, i stayed in the backside area and nearby from beach. My room was okay,TV refrigerator and bathtub provided inside. It's big enough and comfortable. During stay there, we also went to dolphin watching tour in the morning,about 5am. Just spent 50k,we escorted by the fisherman to watched dolphin to the middle of the sea. It took about 3 hours tour. It was fun,but lots of traditional boat tried to approach the dolphins, then the dolphin disappear because of sound of boat machine. Then we back to hotel and got our breakfast,it was yummy. we also spent our night to sharing some scary story in the pool area. But overall everything was okay and i really enjoy stay there.

Dear Erdisovia,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review about Lovina Beach Hotel. I am pleased to hear you had a comfortable stay and you enjoy watching the dolphins and Lovina Beach neighborhood.
We are currently renovating the old front office and other hotel facilities for guests' comfort.
Lovina Beach Hotel is relatively old, built in 1953. So they say it is a historic hotel. I hope your visit us again next time. Thank you again.

Sixty years old now being the original resort. Rooms are well kept and nice. Pool area lovely as are the grounds . Reception being renovated now as it was looking a bit weary but you dont stay in reception do you. Right on the beach and warung on main road by Indomart has good food if you dont want to stroll the ten minutes to the main square. Beds are good but time for some softer pillows in the A rooms. Excellent value for money and you get more really than you pay for.
