We pre-booked a car to pick us up from the airport which was there waiting for us for on time. This was easily booked via. email with staff who were easy to correspond with.
Upon arrival we were upgraded to a two bedroom villa which was nice a nice touch as I was travelling with my sister. The room was beautiful and I would gladly stay there again. The only thing that I can fault is the bathrooms. Water pressure was almost non-existent in the shower and it felt a little dirty and run down. We also didn't have any hot water which was okay as it was hot outside, however there should still be hot water in such an establishment. The little ceramic pots used for the shampoo and conditioner had large chips on them and weren't even full upon arrival. We did have our own so this was not a big issue.
Staff were wonderful and bent over backwards to help us and make our stay most enjoyable. Every evening when we returned to our room, a mosquito coil had been lit in our room. It was little things like this that made our stay perfect. Every morning they would greet us with a smile and walk us over to breakfast where we enjoyed a variety of options that were changed each day. A lot of vegetarian options were made available.
Transport was always easy to organise through the hotel. Alex (or Alek?) was mainly our driver and was very informative and helpful. He pointed out all the great spots in Bali. It can be expensive using only transport through the hotel but I was willing to do so for the convenience factor. The villas are located in a rather central position- away from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak itself, about 5 minutes via car. A suggestion for the hotel is to inform the guests that there are two hotels. I found this out the hard way when a taxi driver took us to the other hotel. He wasn't aware of the one we were staying at, and we had no idea of the location either!! This created a lot of confusion amongst us and was also a bit of a scary experience having a taxi driver drop us off at a random location we had never been to. Staff then organised another taxi to take us back to OUR hotel. Would've been nice if they dropped us off personally so that we didn't need to get back in the same taxi as before with a angry driver!
The day spa was beautiful but a little more on the expensive side- definitely worth heading into Seminyak for a treatment or two.
Room service was okay but was always a little cold. I also enjoyed the afternoon tea that was provided on a daily basis. This was another lovely touch.
I would definitely stay at the Bali Dream Villas again- provided that the bathrooms are fixed and there is the basics of running hot water with decent pressure.
