My partner and I stayed here early in 2013.
The rooms were of an alright standard, however they felt too closed in and it almost felt constrictive. The pool in the single rooms is good but it in hindsight it would have been worth staying at a larger resort with a communal pool as it felt confined (you cannot see anything outside of your room once you enter the front door). Way too expensive for what we received as well.
The front desk information was average. We booked a tour for around $70 AUD and the tour guide gave no good information other than directing us to where we could buy things that weren't great quality. The front desk also did not strive to give information unless we specifically asked the right questions. I spoke a fair amount of Indonesian but to no avail.
The location also is not really in seminyak, rather on the fringes. A place closer to the beach would be a much better choice.
Overall, I was not satisfied mainly because of the location, the closed in feeling while staying at the room, and the unhelpful front desk. Definately not deserving of a rating of 4 or 5.
