Older style Balinese cottages, small hotel. Booked the Puri Cendana based on the fact that they said that a family of four could be accommodated in one suite, 2 bedrroms. Strictly speaking this isn't true - the Deluxe Star rooms are two levels, but the master bedroom is in the loft with a very noisy floor, and open to the lower level (the living area). Two mattresses were put on the floor for our children (aged 3 and 7). It didn't particularly bother us, but if you had older children I think it would be a bit uncomfortable. Big rooms though with a nice balcony with comfy chairs and a drying rack (love a drying rack for swimmers). Also the biggest bath I have ever seen. Small fridge and very small water bottles provided - though we ended up just helping ourselves because the maids just left their supplies outside our room, so I don't really think anyone was too particular about how much you actually consumed.
Gardens and pool area are very nice with a little massage hut where you could get very cheap and good massages etc. Breakfast was fine if a bit unadventourous, and the children ate dinner there and it seemed quite tasty. Small pool table as well which was quite fun fo rthe children. Sraff very pleasant and efficient ,, arranged doctor, bolt cutters (our padlock broke) and came straight away when we couldn't work out the TV (Indonesia satellite only). Babysitter was expensive for Bali Rp80000 per hour, but she spoke excellent English and was very prompt.
This hotel is very good value for money - its right next door to the Sofitel so about 2 minutes from Seminyak beach and pretty quiet - for 5 nights including breakfast, pickup at airport and a fe wextras it was $AUD750 - pretty happy with that. Would recommend but not if you are looking for the 5 star experience in a modern hotel but if you prefer something with a bit of personality then this could fit the bill!
