Stayed for one week 26th July - 2nd August and was met with a great welcome by Poppy, despite arriving very late at night.
The room was very clean and comfortable with a great view from the balcony where we enjoyed breakfast most days. The facilities are basic but good and the rooms look just as they do in the photographs. Pool area great - never too busy so could always go for a swim or get a lounger. There is a bar next to the pool, drink prices are pretty good, especially in happy hour. It was good to meet other people staying there during this time and also films are played some evenings as entertainment. Vaia behind the bar was lovely and helpful (especially dishing out the raki and popcorn).
Bali itself is very charming - the locals are really friendly, there are 5 beaches to choose from and a good choice of bars and restaurants - the prices are very reasonable for an evening meal. The bus stop to Heraklion and Rethymon is about a 20-minute walk away if you want a day out elsewhere, but Elpis also offer car hire.
Overall would highly recommend to others for a relaxing break.
