“Great place to stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We stayed here with another family group in October 2012 for the first 3 nights of our 2 week holiday in Bali. Was a great place to start as it is just across the road to Kuta Beach and a short walk to poppies lane where you get the true Bali shopping experience. It's a very large resort style accomodation with an amazing pool complete with swim up bar, and private gazabos as an optional extra.
The breakfasts were great, typical large hotel buffet style with lots to choose from.
Drinks by the pool were quite expensive, so best to go across the road to the beach and find a nice spot under the trees where the locals with their portable bars will look after you very well. They have Bintang and soft drinks, but were happy to take us on their scooter to a shop they knew and we purchased Bacardi Breezers which they happily kept on ice and served up to me with my friend's Bintang's.
The ground floor of the resort has a cool bar with live night time entertainment, but I have to admit we only went there for a drink one night as we completely wore ourselves out during the days and were happy to go to bed instead.
The resort is quite westernised, so you don't really get the Balinese style experience here as we did when we stayed at other more traditional accomodation.

Room Tip: If you need to keep track of your kids, ask for a room near the pool. We stayed towards the back and...

We stayed here September 2012. The Pools are Amazing!!! The room was fantastic and kept very clean. Kids loved the kids club. The food was great. I celebrated my Birthday during my stay and the Cake and Staff singing Happy Birthday at Breakfast was a lovely touch. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

Stayed for 4 ngts nice hotel and amazing sand pool, infront of kuta beach and easily accessible to all the nearby places
The pool side bar and restaurant is good and the best part is daily rock bands along with the Hard Rock Cafe inside the hotel complex.
Rooms are decent could have been more modern overall a good experience ..

We stayed here November 2012. This was my third time to Bali and my second time staying in Kuta.

The hotel is nice but it is rather old and the majority of things need updating / renovating. The room was standard, two double beds, but smelt a little mouldy. The beds were comfortable but the pillows were super hard. The tap on our shower for the hot water was broken so it was hard to turn.

The house keeping staff were very friendly as were the reception staff. We had fresh towels and complimentary water every day. We felt fine leaving our belongings out of the safe.

The pool is excellent and probably the highlight of the hotel. The gym... not so good. Only two treadmills, only one bike that actually worked and one cross trainer that actually worked. The rower, another bike and another cross trainer did not work and it was unbearably hot in there.

The location is OK if you want to go shopping down Poppies 1 and 2 / Kuta Square or hit the club scene but other than that not many nice restaurants are located nearby.

The breakfast has a nice selection but after three or four days you will probably be over it and end up going outside to another restaurant as they are so cheap and have a wider selection. The eggs / omelette station was yummy.

The worst part about the stay is the live band that plays until midnight every night. It starts around 9pm and if you have a room close to the front reception / bar you will hear the music through the closed doors and windows and blinds.

In summary - it was probably a fabulous hotel 10 years ago. It needs a revamp to bring it back to life.

Room Tip: Away from the reception area / bar to avoid the live music each night

We stayed at the Hard Rock the week before Xmas the moved hotels over Xmas and New Years due to the very high increase in price but really enjoyed our time.
Yes the room was slightly noisy but hence the name.
The pool and cabana's were fantastic and the staff that ran the afternoon games poolside made it really enjoyable, especially Mr Bean (unsure of his name but that's what he told my boys to call him) he was great with the kids and such a nice caring person, the kids club staff were very friendly too.
(Hi Mr Bean from Jordyn and James)
The Buffet breakfast had a good variety and we managed to find ourselves something each morning.
Our rooms were cleaned early each day, it was nice coming back from shopping, swimming etc to made beds, tidy bathroom etc.
We enjoyed our stay and would go back.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with family

We stayed at the Mulia Nusa Dua Bali for the 1st two days during our recent visit to Bali and another 4 nights at Hard Rock Hotel Bali. I must say... We should had have stayed at Hard Rock since we arrived on Bali. Pretty Much overall everybody who works there, really keep the true spirit alive. We stayed at the kids suite, it so huge..everything bout the room was neat.. the service cleaner went above and beyond on showing off her animal made from towel. My daughter showed off to rest her class on her 1st day to school. The pool.. You cant ask for better pool. So many activities for the kids so little time... Lastly, staff at the welcoming desk upon check out was amazing, they trully are the best assests for the hotels that makes this experience come true. Just a small tips, loud music till midnight really give the kids hard time to sleep.

Room Tip: As for direct pool access
