“1st Time In Bali”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Didn't know what to expect when you book accommodation over the internet, sometimes the photos do not represent where you are staying. We have all been pleasantly surprised, rooms have everything you need, TV, small mini bar, great shower & bathroom, A/C works very well, nice pool for little children & for older. Gym on top floor, great restaurant with meals all day, room service and a 24 hour coffee & cake restaurant, Mini Mart is located opposite which is like a small 7/11. 24 hour Security guards at front gate as they check ever vehicle that enters with mirrors that even check underneath the vehicle. They have a shuttle service which leaves every hour to take you to the shopping strips and a $2.00 taxi will bring you back. Staff are excellent and very polite. When we come back again, we will be coming here.....

Room Tip: We had the deluxe room on the 1st floor and found it to be enough for us.

We stayed at Fontana from 26/04/14 to 28/04/14. Every aspect of Hotel was nice especially the cleanliness ( I give 5 stars for cleanliness). Infact it is one of the rare hotels which is better than the pics displayed at the hotel website (Fontana please upgrade your website and upload better pics). Also this is the least expensive 4 star hotel available at nice location in Bali. In addition the wifi in the hotel is superfast. The only negative part in the room was that it has centralised air-con which is not installed at a good location and also has no swing option available which takes some time to get room cooler. Rest I loved the hotel very much.

Impressive hotel with grand entrance and lovely décor at the lobby. Definitely impressed… until we walk into the bedroom.

Deluxe Room we have on the 3rd floor was small, plainly decorated, and a bit squishy for the 2 of us. More to a standard rooms at other hotels than a deluxe one. Although the King sized bed was comfortable, the TV was placed towards the side of the room so while laying on the bed we had to angled our neck to watch the TV. Bathroom was nice with rainhead showerhead above. Mini bar was provided free of charge which was a nice gesture but really it wasn’t that much of a value (around IDR 50,000/USD 5 if you get them yourselves at the mini market nearby). We were gonna have a dip at the Swimming pool however at 8 am in the morning there were a couple of cleaning services guys cleaning and chatting around the pool which made my wife a bit uncomfortable so we went back to our room.

Sleep quality was 3 out of 5, our room (320) was located close to a busy road so even at 6 am in the morning we could hear the noise from the road. And yes it was noisy.

Our most favourite highlight on our stay was probably the buffet breakfast, from eggs freshly cooked anyway you like to the soups, they were all yum! And oh there is a nice steak place across the road if you are game enough to cross the road in Bali.

We have stayed at quite a number of hotels in Bali and thought we’d like to give this one a go. If it wasn’t for the flash deal at the website we would have gone with our usual hotel nearby at Centra Taum. But definitely worth a try (at the 50% flash sale deal it was a good value).

Room Tip: As further as possible from the road side. Our room was located close to a busy road so even at 6 am...

Me and husband with 2 children stayed 3 nites in Fontana. We really like the design of the hotel it's modern retro..

Our superior room was spacious also the bathroom even without bathup. The hotel served free minibar that refill daily.

The location is not in the kutalegian crowded area but it tooks only 10 mins to the beach so it was perfect for us.

We love the food from breakfast and the breakfast area also very comfy.
they got portabella bistro and sunny 16 cafe which are so artistic.

The pool was greeny with the surrounding garden. But we missed to try the gym and spa.

Overall we really enjoy and satisfied staying in this hotel. Definitely will come back here again in the future.

We stayed for a week and liked the hotel and the staff were fantastic. Breakfast and spa was excellent.
Rooms were fine, we booked deluxe rooms overlooking pool but no chairs on balcony. Housekeeping was great at all times. Ate in restaurant once for evening meal and was good. Reception staff always happy to help and always smiling. 24 hour café was a bonus offering good cakes, meals etc at good prices.
A couple of things I wasn't too keen on was there was not a lot of sunbeds (about 6) and surrounded by trees so a lot of shade. Did not like you could smoke anywhere in the hotel, even in the restaurant. Bar wasn't open very late. Lastly you need to always jump in a taxi which is no big deal as they are very cheap.
Overall good value for money.

Room Tip: High floor overlooking pool.

Regarding the sunbed in the pool area, actually we have another 4 beanbags as an alternative when the sunbed fully occupied by other guest. Now the sunbeds are still in the process of ordering.

We look forward to welcome you back to stay with us.
