Putri Bali Suites was one of the few places I was able to book at short notice for 12 days over New Years 2012/13. The photos looked quite impressive, so I spashed out the USD 6,050 for a non-refundable one-bedroom villa with pool.
At the airport, I was not received on time by the driver. "Too much traffic" - predictable?
The location was far from the beach or anything else interesting, but I was aware of this. Upon checking in, I was asked to immediately pay the full USD 6,050. "Management policy". That makes a whopping USD 500.- per day, so I could not wait to see my dream villa.
What I saw was really poor standard: It's like a building from the 70ies that no one has done much work on since. The aircon had no chance to cool the small bedroom down; the bathroom could have been in a military barrack. Two TV sets were there - one in the bedroom, one outside. Neither flatscreen nor satellite TV. The lady from the reception tried to install internet with a USB stick into the power plug - with no success.
A positive was that my complaint about what I got was taken seriously, but only after insisting several times. I was offered to switch to Amasya, which is also sub-standard for the price, but which is closer to the beach and has much, much nicer villas.
