On the outside, this place looks good, charming bungalows that surround a pretty little pool with a cafe attached to it. But don't be fooled! The things that make a lodging experience worth the stay was pretty much non existent. I can firmly say we hated our stay at the Balangan Sea View Bungalow.
Inside the bungalows:
Super simple, bare bones, no personality. Bed mosquito nets were dirty and the bedding/mattress/pillows were disgusting--smelled like a dirty wet mop. We couldn't bare the smell and ended up sleeping on our towels.
The smell of bug spray was so strong we could taste it. We didn't mind the cold water or how open it was to the outside elements but the dark stones in the bathroom were hiding more than dirt. There were huge cockroaches roaming the bathroom.
Food was ok, nothing special. Breakfast not included.
Did not work.
Not the friendliest bunch here. We didn't feel welcomed, no greetings, not a speck of service. When we asked to use their phone for a local call (since their public telephone was broken and wifi didn't work for skype) they charged us for making a local 4 minute call.
We felt that this place was only interested in collecting our money. Sure the location is nice, but the overall experience was so foul that the spiciest blend of sambal couldn't cover it up.
