We stayed here in January for 5 nights. We had a two bedroomed very spacious apartment with a balcony overlooking the pool. There was myself my brother and his two children a 17 year old and a 10 year old. The hotel is a little dated, especially the bathrooms, but it is reasonably clean. A water cooler in the room was an appreciated bonus. There was a kitchen with everything you would need to cook a meal if that's what you want to do. We used the large refrigerator to store perishables. I found the pillows uncomfortable, I often do, but there was no pillow menu. The noise of air-conditioning in the lounge room at night was unbearable. The TV was an old clunker but there was a good selection of cable available.
Breakfast was included and it was good. They could lose some of the ugly bits and pieces decorating the buffet area though. The Pavillion where breakfast is served is pretty and we always looked for a table near the large open windows to enjoy the tropical gardens. The staff are pleasant. You have to remember to get a glass of milk if you take it with coffee, which is served black, at your table. We enjoyed pool side service for lunch. The pool needs a bit of an upgrade (a bit shoddy) broken tiles etc. The children had great fun on the water slide, though the teenager thought it could do with a blast to get rid of the mould. Wifi was excruciatingly slow.
We accidentally returned to the wrong hotel one night. We didn't realise that there is a sister hotel. We looked around a little and then they drove us back to the suites in one of the hotel vehicles. This was a happy accident. We returned to the hotel to enjoy their Sanur Harum Chinese restaurant. Our dear waiter invited us to return the next day for breakfast. My brother and children went and said they were treated like royalty. They even found some vegemite for them! They were very impressed. The Chinese restaurant food was excellent quality and reasonably priced. There are three sizes to choose from and we chose small dishes. The Crab I had was equal to what I enjoyed in Singapore in October but a fraction of the cost. We returned later in our holiday to this restaurant and had another enjoyable experience.
After dinner we sat in the bar to enjoy some live music and dance.
The ambience and architecture of the foyer is stunning. I probably would not return to the Sanur Paradise Plaza Suites. I might stay at their Hotel. The SPPS is a bit of a distance from the beach. You can take the shuttle but we prefer to walk. (to work off all those extra calories) You can leave the hotel by the back gate which is guarded at all times. Hotel security is very good. We had difficulty finding the hotel's spot on Sanur Beach and when we did, all recliners were taken. The family did return another day and were fine. Close to the night market there is a Japanese restaurant called Pergola. This is excellent as good as the best anywhere! We returned for their lunch special one day which cost approximately $4 AUD including tea for a bento box. Very clean, erratic service (I think the waiters might not have understood) but worth a visit. We also went to Warung Little Birds one evening. It's a tiny street cafe, quaint but good and very cheap.
