Horrible Hotel!! I stay only for 1 night, but feels like 1 month. The room very dirty, all the property in the room is bad, TV channel bad, dirty blanket, dirty curtains, dirty floor. Very not recommended.

The doors do not securely lock. There was a rather large gap between the (sliding) doors and the wall, large enough for a small cat to walk through, and certainly large enough for bugs or other critters. Within minutes of arriving I found two ants on the bed. Without any forewarning, I find the water not running one morning when I go to take a shower, and when I tell someone, she simply said "yes, later" - several tries and several hours later it finally works again. The bathroom was always moist and desperately needed better circulation, the surfaces all looked dirty and there was a huge dusty cobweb. I had difficulty communicating with all of the staff I encounteted. The pool looked clean. The room curtains were stained and the walls all looked dirty, the sheets were clean.
The unsafe doors, bugs, and water shut-off all led me to leave the resort early for another place.

i went on june 18-20, 2011. this is my second stay here within 6 months. first on May with my family (5 adults) and the 2nd only with my husband for 2 nights. i love the ambience. located straight in front of Cimaja beach (surfer's spot). i like the rooms, the feel, buat they got a very very lack of maintenance. the room cleaners must be lazy. i knew if they put a bit effort the toilet bowl will be cleaned (i stayed on room 108). but don't woory the bed&covers quality is fine.
last visit on May, i still comfort swimming in the pool. but yesterday? it gross. looks like they haven't cleaned the pool in weeks. the "infinity" pool is good, with the view of river and beach on the far.
i don't take many pics on this trip, but you can see the pics from my prev visit here http://sallynatanegara.com/traveling/desa-resort-at-the-queens-harbor/
i sleep without locking the door and still feel safe. family are welcome, on saturday night the pub is hectic with band & live music. the breakfast are boring, i always order fried rice, though they also have a choice of american breakfast and porridge. the porridge wasn't good, tried some from my mom's.
if u can excuse the lack of cleanliness, it's worth the price. you can feel Indonesian "desa" ambience here. i definitely will come back.

Room Tip: i'd rather stay on the first floor rooms

Stayed there over a long weekend. Nice set up, it gives a laid back desa (village) atmosphere. Hills view in front of the hotel and beach view at the back. The beach is a surf point. It offers bungalows and regular hotel rooms as well.

We stayed at one of the wooden bungalows, the rooms are nicely design with the necessary amenities of a regular hotel. Wi fi is available at the lobby and restaurant for free.

The bungalow just needs more clean up and little fixes here and there.


I like the green surrounding, nice little pool and nice little cafe with live band at night. The hotel staff quite friendly and attentive.
