We spent a week there at the beginning of June. Perfect weather.
Gentle, sweet staff, always polite as true Balinese are.
The rooms are quite basic but pleasant, they are spacious and look out over gardens.
The bathroom was a bit on the tired side and could do with a bit of smartening up. The hot water tended to run hot and cold, lucky it was Bali and not a cold climate! The bath towels were old - no pile and not white anymore. However, the towels provided at the pool were still fluffy and soft.
Breakfast area is relaxing with great food and they will cook you an omelette or scrambled eggs. Good variety of food and helpful staff.
Large swimming pool and plenty of sun lounges.
Try to avoid school holidays or ‘internet deals’ as it seems there are a lot of package travellers there. There was a group who must have taken their kids out of school and virtually took over the pool area. The father was louder than all the kids and it was unbearable to try and relax at the pool. The Balinese staff were too polite to say anything although it clearly annoyed them as well as the other guests.
Hotel management need a sign reminding guests to consider others around the pool.
Otherwise, the pool was lovely and once the noise subsided, we made the most of it.
It is close to great restaurants, Sarong is a two minute walk and possibly the best eating experience we have ever had in Bali. There is also a cheap and cheerful Thai restaurant just a few minutes walk away too.
Taxis are plentiful and cheap, however we were made aware that the ‘Bluebird’ taxis are government owned and not Balinese, so we always waved them on and took a local Balinese taxi instead. Maybe not quite as new, but still ok and made us feel better supporting the Balinese rather than Indonesia.
