“Good Location, and Good Value for Price”
Reviewed April 13, 2011

We stayed in the rooms all the way to the back. In the modern wing. They have AC, hot water, and a TV plus a tub in the bathroom (the first we've had in Indonesia) which was very exciting, plus soap and two towels each. Near luxury for us backpackers who have been trying to travel cheaply. Great location, steps from a dirty beach and right next to nice restaurants. They also had a nice infinity pool. The staff wasn't super friendly but they were nice enough.

Quite big rooms with no high stnadrad - esp. the bathrooms were quite weared down... but with air-con.

Breakfast was small - dry bread and some jar, coffee - thats it.

The pool was nice and clean, but the garden not really in good shape. The area is directl located at the beach front, so only a couuple of meters to the beach and also to the nichtlife it was only a 5 min walk.

I had huge expectations about Lovina and was looking forward to staying a few nights. Checked into the Nirwana Seaside which looked nice. We were a little upset that we had to pay for our two nights upfront but got over it. The room itself was good but basic: no phone, no locking door, grey (that used to be white) towels and no one to make the bed. That doesn't usually mater but for the price, I expected more. We had heard rumours that the staff steal off tourists and since our balcony door didn't lock, I slept with one eye open. Lovina itself is very sad. It looks down on its luck with many places going broke, locals not happy to see you, dilapidated buildings that were going to be resorts and one kid who threw a open & full bottle of water into the Perama Bus as a welcome gift narrowly missing my head. Suffice it to say, I was happy to return to Ubud

Nirwana Seaside Cottages is on a huge property next to the beach and right next to the main square of town with the dolphin statue. Rooms have been renovated and it has lovely garden grounds with a terrific infinity pool. Rooms are about $15 a night (hot water is a bit scarce but rooms are clean and quiet). That said, Lovina is a sad, sorry place. Tourism is down so the vendors are desperate, practically chasing tourists down the street no matter what tactic of "no" you try. The big thing here is to swim with the dolphins, which are apparently quite used to people. You can also snorkle close by but need to take a fishing boat out to the site. The beach is dirty and we had no desire to go in the water, mostly because of the touts. It made the hotel pool all that more appreciated (and the pool really was fabulous). Things might be nicer farther away from the center of town.

The touts that lurk at the front gates of this Lovina property are little more than hustlers and drug dealers, peddling prostitutes and magic mushrooms to tourists. They are aggressive and vile.

The cleaning staff stole 500,000 rupiahs from my backpack ( roughly $50.00 ) and when confronted, the management claimed no responsibility at all.

Do yourself a favor: If you need to go to the beach in Bali, go to Sanur or Kuta. Lovina is an economically challenged city. There is not much going on except a dirt brown sand beach littered with trash and annoying herds of handicraft sarong peddlers

Never again....
