GLASS HALF EMPTY VERSION
Before I go any further please note that my comments are not based on one single room but the common aspects of Five rooms that our travel party occupied
The initial appearance is that of a well maintained tropical paradise but that’s where it ends
The rooms are tired and in need of general maintenance
Air conditioners leaked (ironically on the suitcases)
One air conditioner didn’t work but still managed to leak
Bar Fridge’s were useless
The shower is over the bath and you need to be a body builder to turn it on
The exhaust fan made more noise than a Boeing 737
TV reception was so bad it was not worth watching
No spare power points
The free wake up service is fine if you wish to wake up every morning at 7.00 am to
the sound of their gardener banging and clanging but personally I would have preferred to sleep in.
Contents of bar fridge are labeled with “Breezes” labels so don’t take something with the expectation that you will just replace it, besides that’s naughty isn’t it .
Don’t expect any privacy at 3.00 PM each day as the mini bar needs to be checked (like it or not)
The Bintangs from the bar are also labeled “Breezes” so don’t wander in with you own
We specifically requested certain rooms in person when booking and confirmed twice via e-mail
You’ll never guess what happens next – Sorry sir you can’t have those rooms but we have other rooms for you. Now you would think that they would select a room that was empty wouldn’t you?
No they wouldn’t they would give me a room that was occupied till 6.00 PM and then make me wait another Two hours while they cleaned it
Pool was dirty and we only noticed it being clorinated once in 18 days
THE NITTY GRITTY ,DOLLARS AND CENTS
While at reception I overheard two separate parties complaining about erroneous charges on their rooms
Sure enough Six Bintangs “accidentally” put on my room. I am sure this in an accident but enough of these accidents is good income
We were quoted in $US all correspondence was in $US and when it came time to pay they insisted on converting to Rp at lower than street rates and charging the credit card in Rp . This cost me around $400.00 extra for our 18 days accommodation
Bar prices and room service are expensive in comparison with other Bali hotels
Laundry is way over what you will pay at other hotels, take a walk down the street and pay about One Tenth of the price
This is not a cheap hotel and once you are there they are after every extra cent they can get.
Entry fee to watch the AFL grand final was Rp 90,000 it kept it in my pocket and watched it elsewhere
