Before staying at this hotel, I stayed at Tune Hotel Kuta which is a famous budget branded hotel. First of all, Tune Hotel was great and the location is right in the busy Kuta tourism area.
Let's talk about Santika. I decided to stay here instead of staying at Tune for longer because I got an awesome complimentary voucher from a friend of mine. And before fly to Bali i wasn't sure will I be happy to stay at Tune or not (ended up I love that hotel). And when I moved to Santika, I was regret. Even though its located in Kuta district as well, but it is far from the main area which is always be crowded by tourists. It takes 10-15mins fast pace of walking to reach the busy area of Kuta i referred above (it would be longer if walk slowly, but what is the point to walk slowly because the road along that area is very different, 90% local people, its not a tourism area). Be careful to take a walk to go to busy Kuta area as the traffic is crazy and not enjoyable.
I stayed for one night only, thanks god. I didn't try their breakfast because I woke up 11am and should be checkout by midday. I wasn't regret not to eat their breakfast after seeing many reviews which not recommend at all about their food.
Howsoever, the room was awesome. Not that big, but the bed was comfortable. The shower pressure you a lot in a nice ways. But its silly that the separation between shower spot and the rest of bathroom only half side of glass. So it will always be wet the floor. The television is not big but didn't affect me. Don't leave your foods in the table or even your room, I left my foods and ended up surrounded by ants army!!! The room contains such a electric insect destroyer, nice but kinda weird. The staffs were very nice and friendly anyway. Guests were dominated by local people, it makes sense! Mostly bussiness people, so it was a bit weird for me to back and forth there with surf stuff and traveling kit among bussiness people lol! So, if you are a traveler, I'm not recommend you to stay here. Do not choose this hotel!! You will be regret...
If you want to stay at hotel around Kuta area, do some research first.. Kuta is big, not the entire is tourism area. Let me inform you, just choose hotels in Kartika Plaza Street, Kuta Square, Pantai Kuta Street, in front of beach, or even Legian Street which is a busy street with many night club and nice venues. Do not stay at hotel near airport, you will get bored. I totally recommend you to see maps first, Google Map maybe, to discober about Kuta area. I did it and it helped. Oh, and reply everyone who greet you when you walk in the street, they are nice people, I didn't reply one guy because I was drunk and it was late of night, and he got angry and yelled at me sarcasticly!!!
