We stayed at Ijen Resort & Villas as a part of our honeymoon, the location couldn't be better, beautiful views and perfectly groomed gardens that really invite you to just inhale all the nature that surrounds you. That being said the rooms could use a hand of fresh paint and there are some other details that could been taken care of. The prices are very steep compared to other places in Indonesia, I understand that the resort is in a remote location, but massages where 10 times more expensive than anywhere else in the country. It pissed me off that being charged so much a very small part of all that money is going to end in the hands of the ones who deserve it the most.
The food is a poor attempt in trying to accommodate western tastes and some very poorly made local dishes as well. I've heard that it was a new chef brought from a city i Java, I would recommend to look around the village to find another new chef, we had a wonderful meal at a small warung near by.
Our driver, provided by the hotel, was exceptional he went out of his way to show us around and make the trip worth while.
