Stayed 30 Jan -2 Feb 2013 (4 Days 3 Nights)
Deluxe Premium, bought on Hard Rock Hotel website during midnight sale 10 days before arrival, still best price. (Low season).
2 Adult, 2 Kids (3.5 and 2.5 years old) 1 Teenage (Helper)
Airport to Hotel using taxi asking Rp.120.000-150.000, bargain and got for Rp.90.000 for a 15-20 minutes ride. Nice weather, arrived in front of the lobby, thirsty... and the hotel got a nice bucket of bottled mineral water, cold one on the bottom of the bucket! Perfect! :)
During the decision to stay in HR, I research on Tripadvisor and many comment about the noise, so in the morning I called from Surabaya and asking for a room far from the pub. They got it for us, since it is a low season, no problem, got in the 1st floor. But we were looking for a better pool view, they let us view the 3rd floor (still during cleaning up). So we stayed in 1st floor room for about 90 minutes, relax. Moved to 3rd floor, the same floor with the lobby, close to the reception, even finally it was closer to the pub, but we tried the first night with no problem for the noise. They actually let us move back to the 1st floor if the first night didn't go well. Very nice service for low season.
All the staffs are really warm and welcoming, lots of smile, helpful, all polite! :)
The reception carpet in the lobby area need to be changed, I suppose, since smell of long time wearing.
We stayed in Deluxe Premium because I heard mostly are refurbished or renovated. It was! Nice new feeling room. The Deluxe Premium got ipod docking music. Turn Down service very useful! Changed a lot of wet bath mat.
HR is a nice big hotel and the warm water swimming pool really great as reviewed by others.
Location super nice, just across the street to the Kute beach.
On the way back to hotel, behind the security booth we can clean our-self with clean water.
We got free photo in the hotel location. I think it is from the Deluxe Premium service. Got 6R photos, developed one day after the photo shoot.
Breakfast on the first day is very nice, the second day...ok, the third day...eat less because the manu almost the same. We always got a nice sofa table by the window with the pool view. Very nice, especially the second day it was a raining morning! Superb!
For additional person, too expensive, I think they charged around Rp.240.000++/person. So I did not let my helper had breakfast there, but the hotel allow her to came along as long as just helping our kids, not eating. Very understanding.
Starbucks in the same area with the hotel, they even have a stairs to go directly from hotel to the Starbucks. Many small shop, many mini market around. Close to the Kute Beachwalk (only 15 minutes walk).
Our kids love the horse riding, they park right in front of the hotel. Asked for Rp.150.000, we bargain and got it for Rp.100.000 (low season) for a 15-20 minutes circle rides from Beachwalk to Hotel. It was ok!
They gave us a free wi-fi (speed OK, around 512) for deluxe premium and a code to download music (only from computer) I download from ipad and did not work, asking for another code, download it on my macbookpro, something went wrong, cannot download, so I skip it anyway. Just around 15 song ok to skip.
Small private chill out pool, tried for 10 minutes only because there was a lot of the tree debris...quite dirty, we moved to the big pool finally (open till 9 pm)
Lil'Rock kids club very nice from outside, but my daughter not really interested since we also had many activities together outside, so for around Rp.300.000,- membership for the whole stay (3 nights for us) was not really worthed. Unless you left your kids there for the whole day.
Tabo (for the teenage) has a greatttt place! I wish I was a teenager traveling with friends too. :) They got nice theatre and nice disco room.
Rock Spa is quite pricey. We skipped.
The overall stay, Excellent, nice bed, clean hotel, well renovated.
The pub at night also entertaining, all the song and the band was great! Sometimes me and wife went out of the room to watch and enjoy the music.
OK, going back to airport...it was on Saturday noon, Hotel transport asking for Rp. 130.000 nett, but we decided to take public taxi and spend only for Rp. 52.000 (with light traffic).
So, we love Hard Rock Hotel. Might stayed there again...but there are just too many hotels in Bali to explore...hahaha...
I hope this review helpful! Have a great holiday in Bali! :)
