As our first overseas holiday with the kids (I have a son 5, daughter 3 and baby girl 3 months) we could not have chosen a better place to stay. The kids loved the children's pool area, the location was walking distance to shopping and to Waterbom Park, the rooms were lovely, the staff beyond helpful, and the hotel grounds were absolutely beautiful. We used the kids club a few times but found it better to just hire a babysitter each for the older two (bub stayed with me of course) at roughly $4/hour it was peace of mind to know they had one on one care. Would highly recommend to anyone travelling with kids, we will definitely return!

Room Tip: I recommend the pool view rooms - family studios are nice and big but not as well located, we upgrad...

I do not know where to start, the food is excellent, staff are so professional, rooms are exceptional, pool areas are excellent, overall standard of resort is a 12 out of 10. We will def be staying again this was our 2nd stay there.

Room Tip: If you like using the pool areas try to get a family pool side room

Just got back from dynasty, if you have kids I highly recommend it as you don't really have to leave hotel for entertainment for them. Food was nice from the all the eateries, rooms were nice as well. Now for my whinge, if you overindulged the night before don't get a pool view room as with all the activities around during the day it wont allow you to sleep it off lol, mozzies and buzzards weren't really a problem... Until you get in to hospitality lounge, have no idea what the hell is being cultured on those couches but we were itchy and covered in bites after spending 3 hours kicking back in that room. Hospitality lounge is a nice touch but needs some hardcore fumigating. All the eateries are spot on around the dynasty, check out queens indian just out the front, may need to book as it usually full, best indian ive ever had. The one directly across the road that makes pizzas is spot on as well. Is it a cheap hotel to stay in, not really, but the rooms food and service are quality and location are good. Something that I didn't really notice on previous trips to bali was there is quite a few fixed price shops around for your 100% genuine fakes, which is a good thing in my opinion, they dont try and pounce on you and you dont have to offend each other with offers. That's it from me

Thank you for sharing your experience following your recent stay with us. I was sorry to read that you were bitten by bugs. Bed bugs are normally brought in through people’s shopping bags especially when they have been in local markets etc and whilst the bags are in the room the bugs exit onto furniture or couch bases. With standard cleaning practices it is not always easy to find them since they hide inside crevices and only when the warmth of a body is near do they come out. However, thank you for bringing this issue to my attention, rest assured that this will be rectified.

What a fantastic place to stay. The facilities are fabulous and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. There are two swimming pools with one being for kids with a water playground and a large slide (adults can also use). The only negative thing I really have to say is that the lifeguards around the kids pool are extremely whistle happy to the point where we only went on sunbeds around the main pool after the first day as it got on our nerves. They would literally whistle at every minor indiscretion if it needed it or not. On the other hand, there were approximately 3 or 4 lifeguards on at this small pool at all times so it was extremely safe.

We had a bog standard studio room which was in a nice quiet area and was very clean and suited our needs very well. The room could be divided in two by sliding doors which gave privacy for the adults and also allowed the children to watch television in their own area without the two TV's competing with each other. We went to have a look at a kids suite room and the only difference was that you had a bath and a PlayStation so we would just book the same room again next time. Room service was very good and they could not do enough for you if you asked for anything.

There are 5 restaurants and we ate at 4 of them. They are reasonably priced and although more expensive than outside of the hotel, they were very reasonable):
H2O - We had breakfast here each day which was very good although by the end of our holiday it was starting to get really busy and it was difficult to get seated. This restaurant does themed nights each evening and we tried to book for the Wednesday night which also had a magic show but we could not get in as it was fully booked. We went to the Indonesian night instead and the food was excellent with good entertainment.

Sen5es: We had an evening meal in here which was absolutely beautiful. We also ate breakfast here on the last day as they could not find a table for us in H2O. This restaurant does breakfast for the deluxe room guests and I must admit, I personally preferred H2O as it was bigger and much easier to move around from the table and food etc.

Queen of India: Beautiful Indian food and they catered for children although this is not shown on the menu. We asked if we could go and get a KFC for our 7 year old and bring it in and they cooked him chicken strips and chips.

Gracie Kelly's Irish Bar: Not really impressed with the food in here. I had the butterfish and chips and when it came to the table the chips were almost stone cold. The other meals we ordered were very average also. They took my meal away and by the looks of it they had chucked everything back in the fryer to reheat it. The fish was frozen and not fresh and we did not eat in here again. The atmosphere was good though and we had a drink in here to finish our evening most nights.

Golden Lotus Chinese: We never ate here as it was very expensive and we could not find a children's menu?

The pool bar does happy hour between 1200 - 1300 and 1700 - 1800 on cocktails and Bali Hai beer (which I did not like and unfortunately Bintang was full price throughout). A cocktail will set you back about $3.50 during happy hour although if you buy a bucket of it for approx. $7.50 you will get about 5 glasses out of it.

There are numerous ladies wandering around the pool area all day asking if you want foot massages and lots of people took them up on the offer. It cost approx. $15 for an hour although I gave them 200,000 Rp expecting to get 50,000 Rp change and it never came and I was too embarrassed to ask for it. When we went back to the room I read in the brochure that you should not pay cash for this service and should put the bill on your room. A good tip which I wish I had read first as the lady probably pocketed the whole amount for herself???

Overall it was a very enjoyable stay and we will definitely return.

Room Tip: All rooms were good in our opinion and it all depends if you want silence or to be around the pool?

Bali Dynasty was a Fantastic choice for our family and friends. The kids club was Fantastic it enabled us adults to also enjoy this fantastic place. The hotel did there upmost Every day to make sure there was things to do and things to enjoy. Our kids are 4 & 7 and they LOVED every min of the trip. Food was Real Good although busy in the morning at breakfast @ H2O
The Pool was Great, the kids Pools was fantastic, room was Great. We had the kids suite (Rm 108) for 5 days and the garden view family room (Rm 142) for 2 days, BOTH Were Very Nice and almost identicale when we go back ill probably just get the Family Garden View Rm as the Only real difference was a sliding door between rooms.
The pool bar was well used :)

We chose this hotel as family members were attending a wedding in Bali at a hotel we didn't want to stay at but not too far away was the Dynasty which I had heard had facilities for kids, since we were going to be doing some grandchildren sitting during our stay. It was the best decision we made & can't speak highly enough of the grounds, rooms, facilities & staff and the cleanliness of the hotel. Kids club provides activities each day which we didn't have much to do with but the kids participating seemed to be having a ball. The water fun park within the hotel turned out to be the best activity for our two granddaughters. They loved it. We stayed in two different rooms, superior for just 2 & then the executive suite with the girls and both rooms were comfortable, but given the choice next time we would stay in the executive suite again. There is plenty of restaurant choices within the complex & pool facilities, activities & services such as coffee shop, internet, library, happy hour, babysitting service, etc. No complaints whatsoever. Good on you Bali Dynasty.....certainly a good hotel to stay whilst in Bali.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms are the best.

This was a good family hotel. Clean, well staffed and easy to access.
The kids club was very good- lots of great activities including 2 late night movie nights.
The noise at night in halls does travel, this can be bad for trying to get little children to sleep early. The hotel does have signs- but it is up to travellers to abide by it :(
Breakfast was lovely.
Satff lovely and friendly.

Thank you for your feedback with regards to the noise at night in the corridor, I have asked our security and duty manager to be more vigilant in patrolling particularly both in the early morning and late evening. We do have illuminated signage to remind people to keep the noise down. I was pleased to learn that overall you enjoyed your stay with us. Despite the above, I am pleased to read your kids enjoyed the kids club and appreciated the service from the staff.
