“A hidden gem”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

This peaceful village and resort is ideal for weary travellers to relax and take in what the area has to offer. The gardens are beautifully kept and the staff very welcoming and friendly. The pool although quite small, is well placed overlooking the ocean and a wonderful place to unwind.

I understand some of the apartments have been refurbished, unfortunately not the one we occupied. The cleanliness was not of a standard we would have expected from a Royal Resort.

The restaurant food is adequate but expensive, however the entertainment, particularly the Bali dancers, was wonderful.

As other reviewers have said this is a perfect choice for a real holiday. The resort offers many activity suggestions if you want to keep busy and explore but equally the lovely pool beside the sea is hard to leave. The staff are very friendly and eager to help you but not pushy. This part of Bali is quite different the southern region but still caters well for tourists. Before you book be aware that this resort is not in town but quite isolated although there are transport options and we did walk to town but the road is narrow and busy.
This is a small resort but the service is excellent. We were very frustrated with the wifi but then towards the end of our stay it improved greatly. The units are serviced daily and beds turned back in the evening. We stayed for 6 nights and stayed in an oceanfront unit which had a magnificent view although was noisey at night with the sea crashing in. This didn't worry us but might if you are a light sleeper.
We ate in the resort restrauant a few times and it was very nice. Generous portions and fresh, tasty food.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms more private.

We stayed for a week in the resort and had an amazing time. The resort is for people looking for a quiet time in a traditional area that has not been over run by westeners. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
We were able to venture out and explore beautiful forests, temples, palaces and amazing beaches.

We stayed at Royal Bali Beach Club, Candidasa in June, we had a week there in Timeshare.As there were 5 of us staying, the staff came in each evening and made up the couch for us, even turned back all the beds. This is an excellent Timeshare Resort, very comfortable 2 bed room Units, we had a mini kitchen, so we did for ourselved for breakfast. We did eat at the restraunt twice, on the sunday night they have a BBQ in restraunt, with Balinease entertainment, was very good, although we did think the meals were very expensive. We had room service each day, with clean linen and towells.we had 2 ensuites in our Unit. Reception books trips, and we went on 4hour fishing/ snorkelling trip. Snorkelling in Blus Lagoon, was excellent. We brought back enough fish to cook for our dinner that night, the Chef was very happy to cook for us in the restraunt, and also did some salads. Royal Bali Beach Club is right on the beach front, with a beautifull swimming pool and Spa.Out in the lane from the Resort we soon found a small shop owned by Ketut Sutama and his wife, he sells groceries and essentials, Just next door Ketut's shop, his brother has a small restraunt, the food is excellent, cooked fresh, and the service excellent, so we had lots of meals there. And next door to the restraunt is a massage therapist (excellent, and cheap) We soon found out Katut has a very nice Car, price negotiable, Ketut took us to many places in the week,, and he took us back to Denpasar, such a nice man!!!!!! We thoroughy enjoyed our week at Royal Bali Beach Club Candidasa, forgot to mention the resort has a free shuttle bus twice a day, 9am and 11am. Candidasa is a very quiet town, and resort great for relaxing and having a holiday.

Room Tip: We were in Unit 2, back off the beach a bit and very quiet. this unit is on the ground floor.

Our first visit to RBBC Candi dasa - very enjoyable. We had a studio room (too small) but next time we'll book a one bedroom. Our room had an adjoining door which was very thin and we could hear the people next door sneeze! When we arrived we went straight to the pool, and when we jumoed in found it to be a salt water pool (great), but the following day the pool had been so heavily chlorinated it burnt our eyes. We compained to management and were told that in fact it was not a salt water pool but a chlorine pool and that the waves wash over the pool area and into the pool at high tide. We were incredulous of this explanation but then I saw it happen (why they don't change it to salt water is beyond us). We didn't do any activities other than read books by the pool, so can't make any comments on activities. Also, we didn't eat dinner at the hotel - prefer to eat at the warungs in the road leading to the hotel. The staff were very nice especially the gardener - always a cheery greeting. We look forward to returnung to this hotel again.

Dear Kate M,
Thank you so much for writing your review. Being right infront of the ocean we having too many issue with our maintenance including our pool water. According to the Pool Company (as our pool staff trained by pool company) when it too much sea water coming into the pool, we do need to put extra chlorine , but this usualy take one or two days only. We do understand that people will feel too much chlorine.

Once again thank you and hoping that you will come back again soon.

We came in a group of 8 family and friends, took 2 2br apartments. we areRoyal members, so love it here usually, but this time we felt the staff seemed less interested, the services and activities boring, repetitive and very expensive. The shuttle is reduced to only 2per day at inconvenient times, and we thought something was going on regarding the whole transport thing from that little gang (Balinese for small street). It seems management cant think of anything new, as all the activities and buffets etc are the same as every visit. It seems the margins on them have increased. The WiFi also was terrible, annoying as I was relying on it to finish a uni assignment. The cleaning was also lax this time, my girlfriend watched with interest all week to see if a coffee stain, present from previous guests, was washed off the floor. It wasn't. Staff are keener to close the restaurant at 10 pm than serve hungry or thirsty guests, who are, afterall, paying big money for what was this time fairly average food. When we asked about getting a child minder for a couple of evenings,the resort wanted to charge more than double the going rate, with no apology or negotiation (we found our own for 1/3 of the price, my kids had a ball, and the sitter did nicely for a couple of hours watching tele, and she was very happy to keep doing it for that money. Over half of the cushions on the sunloungers were split and dirty, needing total replacement. Maintenance was laxer, doors cracked and needing a re-work. Also, we finally scored a clothesline in our apartment bathrooms, but the other one had none still. I dont think we will go again to this one. Pity, its really pretty and used to make us feel good to stay here.

This was our second trip to Bali. This Resort is delightful and well laid out. Not too big and over developed. Reception found us a brilliant driver and guide who helped us discover wood carvers, painters and silversmiths. I found the trip to the old settlement of Tenganan facinating but our highlight was our cookery lesson with chef. He introduced us to the family who scoop the sea water up daily and let it evaporate to provide tasty sea salt. At dawn local fishermen provided an ideal photo opportunity as they cast their net whilst the staff kept me supplied with pots of Bali coffee as i read about early English explorers who travelled between Bali and Lombok. Whist we were sitting by the pool huge waves reached up on their tip toes to throw themselves against the sea wall providing a veil of white spray against the bright blue sky and making a very satisfying splosh. Very refreshing and a most enjoyable holiday.
