My boyfriend and I booked a 1 bedroom pool villa and stayed for 6 nights. By the way, if you can, a villa is DEFINITELY the way to go. Sure, your room doesn't look out over the ocean, but you can just walk to the main part of the hotel, which is right on the beach, for that. Our villa was gated and private, just for us. It had a small outdoor pool, lounge chairs, table for having lunch and a gazebo, filled with comfortable pillows to hang out on in the shade. We found that having our own little oasis to come back to after hot days outside the hotel was perfect. No screaming children (there were a few at the main pool) and complete privacy.
The only complaint I have is that the paths to all of the villas is made up of extremely uneven stones, which make it difficult to walk on, especially in the evenings. But it's a quick walk, so it was fine.
Our villa booking included complimentary breakfast every morning in Starfish Blu, which looks out over the beach and ocean. Great food and wonderful service. Head down to Woo Bar in the evenings for live music, sunset-watching, cocktails and little nibbles...we started a few fun nights doing this, and i was perfect. Don't forget your camera/iPhone though...the sunsets here are absolutely breath-taking.
The hotel is about a 5-minute cab ride to the main shopping area in Seminyak. It is completely walkable (we did it the first day), but the lack of sidewalks and heat make it not so fun. Opt for a cab, they cost almost nothing. By the way, no need to be worried about security -- upon entering through the hotel's main gate, every car is stopped and checked for suspicious items (ie bombs) thoroughly. Completely safe.
I really cannot say enough great things about this hotel, we'll definitely be back!
