Our family took a chance with the Marriott, and spent three nights there at the end of our two week stay in Bali. It was delightfully surprising.
What I liked:
New, well designed hotel. Fabulous, huge tropical-like swimming pool (very relaxing!) Superb buffet breakfast. Very clean and comfortable rooms with all needed amenities. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Has a nice, safe kids club next to the pool to drop off the children.
What I didn't like:
Not on the beach (though they have a shuttle to their private beach). The hotel design feels more like a nice business hotel and less like a Balinese hotel (inside, you wouldn't think you were in Bali).
One other big advantage was that next to our hotel was a street with restaurants. In Nusa Dua this is a big deal, as most resorts there are well cut off from the outside world and you have to pay exhorbitant prices for food inside the hotel or take a shuttle to restaurants outside. But right next to the Marriott are 6-7 good restaurants with much more reasonable prices. And if you are okay to walk 10 minutes, you can be at the major shopping complex with even more restaurants and stores. Great location, considering it's not on the beach.More
