Friendly and enthusiastic staff clinches it for Le Meridien Jimbaran. That's the property's strongest point. Keep this parameter up and guests are likely to overlook some of the short comings.
First, let's touch on the positives. We spent a few nights in the Lagoon access rooms, which were great: spacious, clean and modern. The double beds were absolutely comfortable and the big bath room + wardrobe real estate a huge bonus. The lagoon access feature was quite nice, but comes at a slight premium of course. Overall, the rooms in terms of comfort and size were impeccable. Strongly recommended.
F&B and facilities are adequate. Saltwater lagoon is nice for a dip and paddle, swim up bar pretty cosy, so is the restaurant Bamboo Chic. Tried the spa, standard is above average.
Now for the slight downside, which like many previous reviews have mentioned, is the BBQ smoke from the neighboring seafood stalls. Not a deal breaker, but something you might be bothered with. We were initially affected, but didn't think too much towards the end. In fact we enjoyed nights of dinner literally two steps from the hotel.
Will I go back? likely: if i want to be a short distance from the airport and a cosy place to stay. The beach is not much, but i would not mind chilling out in the hotel for a day or two.
