I've been staying at this hotel a few times a year for around 5 years and it has continued to decline in standards. The best thing about the hotel is the lobby, modern looking and spacious however that standard stops when you hit the UP button in the lift on your way to your room.
The paint job on the floors is terrible, garish pink enamel paint on the doors to the rooms and generally ugly interior.
Beds are comfortable however Shower-over-bath configuration in the bathroom is never a favourite of mine.
You pay extra for an ocean view and while the sunsets are kind of pretty, the Losari ocean front is pretty ugly really.
The new Pantai Losari Mosque has been completed and is directly opposite the hotel. Expect to be woken at 4:00 in the morning by the call to prayer if you have opted for the ocean-view room.
The food in the restaurant has never been good here and I've always approached the buffet with caution. You'd be better off walking around the corner to the Seafood Restaurant which does great BBQ fish of all sorts and its always fresh.
