“Good location for this region in Bali”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

We had stayed in the centre of Candidasa before, so we enjoyed having a change and staying outside - the hotel runs a shuttle service twice a day if you want to go into town - and when you are in town you can easily find a driver for a day trip (500,000 - 600,000Rp a day - $50 - £35). If Yiu are transferring to a hotel in a different part of Bali, the driver will drive you there and stop at the main temples and sites, or for a photo stop.

We were very disappointed when we first arrived at Candi Beach Cottages, as they had given our Cottage to someone else - they said that it would not be possible to put an extra bed in a cottage. They gave us a normal room instead and we were very satisfied with this, as the rooms are bigger than the cottages, and ours faced onto the garden and we could see the sea from the patio.

The hotel is by a beach which is very quiet, and you can go snorkelling, but you need to check on the currents - there is a diagram which tells you where to swim. It's useful if you have your own mask and snorkel. There are two pools plus a narrow children's pool, which is very appropriate for young children. There are lots of sunbeds around the pool - you can choose to be in the sun or the shade.

There is building work in the hotel, and as a result the evening buffet is free, which is a bonus at present. This is themed; we most enjoyed the Indonesian evening. There is always a good salad selection (breakfast and dinner) - but a lot of the food is fried - this is an area which the hotel could impove. At breakfast you can order eggs/pancakes - this is better than the pre-cooked food. As is common in Indonesia, the juice tastes as if it made from a concentrate, but they also make some fresh juices - these are considerably watered down, so it is another area which the hotel could improve. Drinks are expensive.

Overall we were pleased with our stay in the hotel and we felt that it was good value.

I would actually give this 3.5 stars - the property is lovely (a nice beach, coral and some fish and beautiful grounds and pool), the rooms work fine (well designed, nice and clean and good value), the service is hugely inconsistent (between very good and completely uninterested) and the food is terrible (really, really average).

The staff is very kind, helpful and smiling. The food was just how we liked it, not too westernised. Breakfast contains both indonesian and western dishes, and the dinner buffet primarily consists of indonesian/Asian dishes. We especially loved the avocado juice :-P There is a seafront with a great view, and though there is no beach rest on, the water and the waves are really fun to play around in. The entire estate is peaceful and it has a relaxing feeling around it. We booked a deluxe cottage which is situated in a building with 3 other rooms. We didn't have an ocean view, but our room 252, surprised us positively by being located quietly surrounded by lots of trees and plants, and furthermore had a little terrace with two sofas and a table under a pavilion. In our opinion, most of the rooms, cottages or bungalows seems to have a good location. They are rebuilding at the moment, so we didn't had the chance to see the entire hotel (and we didn't notice any noise coming from the construction - but it might be due to the Idul Fitri and the adjoining holidays). See the map on their website to get an idea of how the place looks like (though it doesn't feel exactly like they are portraying it).

They were building a new clubhouse/dining room when we stayed, and unfortunately we stayed next to the building work. However, our room, on the second floor was very nice. spacious, modern and smart. we weren't here long enough to worry about staying with a beach/sea view, or staying in a cottage. but our room was good.
the evening buffet was a standard buffet for Indonesia but quite good, as was the breakfast.
I would stay again if passing through Candidasa if I didn't want to be in the town. it is a 10 minute taxi ride from the sops and restaurants.

The property is great, a lot of space, a small beach and the pool is amazing.
The staff and food on the other hand are garbage, before booking make sure you understand the difference between deluxe and superior. As deluxe is a higher grade than superior which makes no sense to me, Deluxe is like a deluxe burger I think I'd rather have a superior burger wouldn't you.
If you are looking for great food(dinner) and friendly staff stay away....no smiles and bring a lot of hot sauce to make the food taste better.
Nothing really within walking distance for better food so do your research before you go. Just stayed one night so I put up with the food(dinner) since it was free with the room if not I would give it to a dog.
Breakfast is much better

Room Tip: try to get an ocean view room and bring your own food even if its free

I stayed here for two nights recently and really enjoyed it. Very quiet location in Candidasa. Two great pools and right on the beach. Renovations were underway while we were there, however we hardly heard anything other than the odd hammering which wasn't so bad. The food could do with some improvement. The buffet breakfast was average but acceptable but the evening buffet for dinner was definitely lacking. Ok for one night but we went elsewhere for our second night. The staff were mostly friendly but very low key. We stayed in a deluxe ocean view cottage which was great. Quite small, but plenty of room for the two of us. It had that established, older feel that some resorts in Bali have. All in all I enjoyed my stay here and will some back, but will probably eat elsewhere.

We have found this special little spot. Unspoilt, unpretentious, a simple delight. As reluctant as we are to share, everyone should have the opportunity of experiencing this refreshing aspect of Bali. Candi Beach Cottages offers an escape from the chaos of the busier destinations. It is easy to reach but just far enough away - the perfect getaway. Located on a stretch of beach that is almost private, you can relax on your balcony and watch the gentle sway of palms in the coconut grove or the waves rolling in upon the shore. There are organised activities should you wish to partake or you might want to hire a scooter to explore the coast. You are an easy 3km walk to Candi Dasa or quick trip by taxi to local restaurants and shopping. Deluxe cottages or the deluxe rooms with their outdoor lounge are our favourites and highly recommended. The staff are caring and helpful and for us it is just like visiting friends. We love it and hope you will too. We are so looking forward to our visit in June.

Room Tip: Go for the Deluxe cottages close to the pool, restaurant and beach front by a few metres!Views are s...
