Puri Saron Seminyak
Ranked #104 of 148 Hotels in Seminyak
Reviewed December 11, 2011

Staying at Puri Saron Hotel was fine for one night, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who is used to upmarket accommodation. It was disappointingly below my usual standards, but would be a good place if you are a backpacker type, or on a budget. The excellent location right on the beach and the very friendly staff made up for the general run-down feeling of the hotel. My room on the ground floor was old- it smelt musty, there were loads of mosquitos especially in the bathroom which was old (but clean) and poky, there was no main light in the room, and at night, dim lamps were all that were available to try and see in the room. I was very uninspired to spend any amount of time in the room. The buffet breakfast was mediocre. The gardens were nice to walk through, and the pool looked okay (I didn't swim in it). if you get what you pay for, then this hotel is probably at the quality you would expect for this price. Don't set your expectations too high, and if you are on a budget, then this is a good option close to the beach.

We had high hopes as we saw the rating on Trip Advisor sadly we were mistaken.

We asked for a non smoking room and when we entered the room it stunk of old stale cigarette smell.

The sheets had stains on them....

The walls had black marks on them showing the age of the place.

While the price was reasonable I'm sure there is better value for money elsewhere. Good luck with your stay. I did warn you!

Clean and very nice, great breakfast, in front of the beach and central but quiet location. Definitely recommendable!

Just back from a few days at this Hotel. This is my second stay here and once again I cannot find much fault with it. The location is great and the Hotel itself, whilst not 5 star, is perfectly adequate for the average person. People will always find fault with something, however, you'll battle to find better value in Bali.

Room Tip: Bungalow's near the pool are best

We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa! It was very nice had our own private pool. Rooms were extremely clean and the service was excellent! Pizza from the pool restaurant is delicious and breakfast is good to! Heaps of great restaurants just along the beach! The only bad thing is the noise from the music being played on the beach at night! Would definely stay here again!

Just returned from 30 days at the Puri Saron. This was our first visit to this hotel , we spend 2 months in Bali every year and have tried most of the Legian beach frontage hotels. We booked on line a Deluxe bungalow with garden view. The room reserved for us had a sewerage smell and we were immediately relocated to room 4211. Aside from a glitch in the aircon one night ( it was fixed straight away) this room was great - the bathroom was large with shower over bath, modern fittings and a large double wardrobe (very handy). Breakfasts are a major disappointment - same buffet foods every day, limited variety. We love to swim in the sea and walk along the shore so the direct beach access was a determining factor in selecting this hotel. On the beach are several restaurants that provide a variety, be warned, at night they scatter bean bags on the sand and attract customers with loud dico music. I am convinced they compete with each other by increasing volume output. This din goes on until late and on Fridays till 3 AM. Recommend ear plugs if you want a sound sleep. A shuttle takes you to Bemo corner (end of Legian) twice dailey. It is a 15 minute walk from there to Kuta square. Recommend you take the shuttle as the traffic in Legian is bumper to bumper all day and night. From the hotel to Bemo corner takes 45 min. The hotel is located in a back street and it is quite a walk to find decent restaurants and shops. We dicovered an excellent Italian restaurant "Goodys" on the beach road at Double 6, well worth a try. The Puri Saron offers fair value for money. We wont be going back as we have other hotels to discover'

Seminyak is just a lovely place to be - really chilled out, family friendly, slightly more upmarket with fancy restaurants like Cocoon and Gado Gado on the beach front. The best thing about Puri Saron is its location. It is just a stones throw from the rooms to their outdoor open restaurant, their fantastic pool and pool bar and best of all the back of the resort opens out to the gorgeous long stretch of beach and the ocean. You can hear rolling waves all the time. It is a 10 - 15min walk from the hotel to the lively main road full of shops, bars, restaurants and the gay nightclubs that have non-stop cabaret shows and thumping house music at the weekends! So it is far enough away to get your peace and quiet by the pool or the on the beach but you can access noisy fun when you choose. The hotel staff are friendly if a little clueless. They don't allow taxis to pull up their road and try to over charge you for their own drivers. I suggest you walk out the resort and hail your own cab [make sure they have a meter] to save heaps! The room itself was nothing to write home about. They are clean and sparse. The bathroom and the water stinks - not much we could do about that as there is a strange smell in all the running water [only drink bottled stuff if you want to stay well]. It was disappointing that they gave us twin beds pushed together and not a double as promised. They said they were full and could not change our rooms or do anything about the nasty smell from the loo. Nevermind. We spent most of our time on the beach. Beware the monotonous, unimaginative and poorly executed breakfasts they serve everyday. They import in papaya, pineapple and watermelons which are not native nor tasty and are the only 3 fruits you will see at the hotel. The sausages are made of processed matter that have never been near an animal and I promise you will get sick of eggs every which way how after a while! They do serve a good fried rice [Nasi Goreng] or noodles although I suspect it is all yesterdays leftovers revamped in a stir fry. Best places for lunch is the cheap wood fired pizza place next door on the beach called Champling [thin and crispy]. For dinner try the tapas at la Plancha [Spanish for 'the grill'] which is the coolest beach bar we found - it is on the right hand side as you exit the back of the hotel to get to the beach. Colourful bean bags, fairy lights and lanterns,cool music, stunning sunsets, cocktails and tapas - awesome! Then you can roll right back into the hotel to sleep it off!
