They do not take Amex.
Other than that we were very happy with our stay.As others have mentioned,the pool doesn't get a lot of direct sunlight, so if you are after a quick tan you will have to go up to the rooftop, where there are a lot of sunbeds.
The food in the restaurant is nothing extraordinary , but well prepared and very edible, no complaints there. Breakfast is a plentiful variety of Asian and European food. The trainee staff are very eager to please, and will bend o ver beckwards to do so, they are supervised by the regular staff.The pool towel registration system is an absolute shambles, with warning signs saying that you will be charged IDR100,000 if you do not return a towel, and show your receipt, however it is best to ignore this warning. Nothing bad happened to us.A taxi in to Seminyak cost around IDR25000.The laundry over the road is amazing, costing not more than 20-50 cents Au per item. My wife spent a lot of time in t he spa over the road at about AUD$20/hour.
All the staff were very welcoming, we would stay there again in a flash!
