I stayed at the Villas for my honeymoon last weekend. The villas are very pretty and definitely private. The shuttle that they have to Ubud center is definitely a plus and they will pretty much drop you off anywhere you want them too. The staff is also very friendly.
My main issue with the place was the cleanliness. We stayed in a 2 room villa, and being a villa we knew the issues there would be with the mosquitos and other insects, however, there really is no 100% closed off part to the main downstairs room section and we found insects (spiders, mosquitos, ants) everywhere, so much so that we didn't feel comfortable sleeping in the downstairs villa. We decided to stay in the upstairs villa which was more closed off then the downstairs (although the slatted windows did not have screens on them), however, the upstairs room villa must not have been cleaned since the prior guest. We found toiletries from the previous person there, a bag of old chips in the drawer and an unflushed toilet (which smelt horrible). Not to mention that I had left my toothbrush out in the downstairs bathroom and went to get it the next morning and it was covered in ants!!! ...We had hoped that maybe they hadn't prepared our room as they should have prior to our arrival and that housekeeping would clean it the next day but it wasn't, since apparently their housekeeping service only consists of making the bed and checking the bathroom is stocked (the floors weren't cleaned or swept, the garbages weren't emptied etc). We stayed in a villa prior to this one and there was no where near the insect problem that this place had. I feel that if they cleaned the place as it should be, on a daily basis there wouldn't be such an issue with the bugs. We wanted to tell the management before we left but the only person on duty at the time did not speak english well and we didn't bother to pursue it.
Another issue which some people may want to take into account. This place is in a rural area, and right next to homes and farms. I am a pretty sound sleeper but both my husband and I were constantly woken up by the sound of roosters (not 1, not 2, but at least 4 or 5) crowing in harmony every morning.
In the end, it was a beautiful, relatively inexpensive place to stay and we stayed for only 2 nights. Had I paid full price i would have been livid, and I definitely would not have been able to stomach more then 2 days there.
