I'll start with the pros.
Besakih Beach Resort is in the perfect location along the beach. The pool is one of the best overlooking the boardwalk onto the beach. It was so easy to walk out onto the street and you had restaurants and day spas and shops all around you. Only 10 min walk to Hardey's shops. Only 10 minutes walk in the other direction to the night market (which I highly recommend you try for a cheap meal). The staff are very friendly, although it was hard to get a beer occasionally at the pool bar. We travelled with our 7 month old daughter and everyone just loved her and stopped to say hello constantly. They provided us with a free cot. They are certainly very accommodating of babies.
There are many regulars who visit the Besakih several times a year (mainly Aussies). We met quite a few of them and everyone is so nice and friendly. They all welcomed us with open arms and we always had a great chat with them all at the pool. If you want a social holiday to meet people then this is the place for you.
The gardens are lovely too.
The cons. The rooms really need updating. They are very average compared with other places we have stayed at in Bali. The TV reception was not great and there is no WIFI in the rooms (I know you must be asking why we are watching TV or going on the Internet on our holiday but don't forget we had a 7 month old baby who took regular naps and went to bed early too). You could only access WIFI in the pool or front lobby areas.
Overall, I'd definitely stay here again. The pros outweighed the cons massively. Recommended.
