Puri Saron Seminyak
Ranked #106 of 148 Hotels in Seminyak
Reviewed August 25, 2010

We were booked for 8 nights and left after 4 and would have left earlier if we could have - as it was we lost our money because we had prepaid. The first "bungalow" we were placed in was just so ordinary we were immediately depressed as we had paid a lot of money. Value for money was zero. We were moved to a different room the next day no questions asked (almost like they were expecting us to ask to be moved). However the new room was only marginally better - the only difference was a mosquito net on a 4 poster bed and a fake Balinese style TV cabinet . As many others have said the photos on their website are not a true indication and there are no bungalows - they are hotel rooms. There is no Balinese feel to this place, the rooms felt like prison cells, dark with no character at all. The 1st floor rooms are worse as at least you have a view of the garden on the ground floor - upstairs there is the feeling of being closed in on the concrete walled balcony. The "white" sheets and towels were grey and had seen better days many moons ago. A room is only a small part of a holiday but there are so many other great places to stay in Bali for less money and more value. Location-wise it is not too bad. Walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants and there is a supermarket nearby. Some lovely drivers very close by in the same street as the hotel - would highly recommend them.

i read all the reviews before travelling with my family (husband,two 17 year olds and a 15 year old teenagers) and was worried.but decided to make my own judgement when we got to puri saron.we arrived at the hotel about 10.30am on a sunday,check in was not until 2pm.the staff we lovey and all very helpfull.they let us have a look at one of the rooms we were going to be put in.i was not happy with the location of the room on the 3rd floor the balcony was facing a brick wall so we said no to that room and they sorted out two more rooms for us to have if we were happy with the,they also were on the third floor,with nice garden views.the rooms were clean and the sheets ect were fine so we told the staff we were happy to have them rooms.they are not super flash or anything,but your not paying top dollar.the pool is lovely.breakfast is fine and the location right next to the beach is great.it a bit far to walk to kuta,but taxis are easy to get.i even got a birthday cake delivered to my room complementary.overall the kids, my husband and i all enjoyed our experience at the puri saron.if you keep an open mind and dont expect 5 star quality then you will enjoy.and if you are going to stay at this hotel,as long as you let them know if you are not happy with something they will do their best to try and accomodate you :)

we wanted to do a really fun holiday on a budget and the hotel allowed us to do exactly that.
the day we reached we were given a n average looking room with twin beds when we had specifically asked for a king bed, with the explanation that no king beds were available.....and immediately i remembered all the TA warnings abt hotels demanding extra money.....all my fears were unfounded as the next day they upgraded us free of cost to a lovely garden cottage room complete with a four poster bed.
the service always came with a smile.
On my birthday, my husband ordered a cake, which was delivered complete with a letter from the management and accompanied by a memeber of the staff singing a birthday song- again complimentary.
Also the hotel is located right on the beach, which is a huge plus....
It is a 2 minute stroll from the main market road of the area where you have great massages some fun shopping and easy to find cabs.
The swimming pool is huge and great for lots of fun games- which is important because the sea in this part of Bali isn't really great for swimming.
The breakfast is satisfactory...but the outdoor breakfast area is a fantastic way to start the day.
And the rooms are huge and so are the bathroom
Overall if u dont want to spend much and have a quintessential bali experience...this hotel is fabulous.
all the ambience and services of a much more expensive hotel

Have just returned yesterday from Puri Saron, a nightmare hotel in Bali!!

In 8 days we went through 4 room changes, blood stained "cleaned sheets", wee stains on our "clean sheets", mouldy bathrooms, shower falling of the wall, flooding bathroom, aircon dripping for hours on end, flooding the room, a bad fall in the puddle from the aircon, metal shards in our breakfast, insects in our glasses, money charged to our bill from different rooms, cigarette burnt pillows! Also, the hotel is directly next to a BUNGY JUMP NIGHTCLUB, which heads off at 2am till 6am every night! Get used to ear plugs.

The Hotel is HORRIBLE! In an awful spot in Seminyak!

Apparently it still stands at its old ratings star wise as it has changed owners in the past 5 years... but things are going down hill and everyone there complained about something.

We stayed in one of the bungalows that we booked and paid for and was pleasantly surprised after reading the reviews before hand. The place was clean, quiet over looking a lovely well kept garden, lovely relaxing area to sit in outside to have a drink and read in fresh air. Well servieced each day and yes towels weren't a bright white but clean and changed each day. Good mosquito net that we used just in case. Room was big with TV and good sized batheroom with bath and area to change and keep bags etc. Large bench in bathroom/dressing room. Breakfast was ample and we had no reason to complain for think we needed more at all. 2 min walk to beach but if you didn't want to pay to sit on beach there was chairs in property over looking the sea. Hawkers were outside the gate but hey you just ignore or have a laugh with them and they leave you alone. Lots of yummy resturants within walking distance or cab ride for $1.50 NZ... 10,000 IRD.... but also nice place across road for us on our first night when tired from standing at airport for hour or so in heat.... but hey that is your welcome to Bali and never any different so you get over it. All in all we would return to this hotel but make sure we always book bungalows as they do seem to be the better choice in all properties in Bali

Oh and there was free wireless internet in our room even though they said only in resurant and lobby ... so do try it if you have laptop with you.
