The location is perfect because it is only 20 m from the USS Liberty wreck, which is the main reason we visited Tulamben.
Initially we booked the cheapest room with fan (Rp 100,000/nite). This room is located next to the kitchen, the size is OK, but we couldn't close the bathroom door, and with semi outdoor bathroom (or maybe the bathroom's ceiling is broken and they havent fixed it?) I could just imagine how many mosquito we must kill at nite :(.
We changed to AC room (Rp 300,000/nite). All these rooms are facing the ocean. It's quite clean, but everything feel sticky and even the bed is a bit damp. I guess it's because the staff didn't close the room's door and the salty air from the ocean just stuck in the room. Mosquito is apparently the permanent guess even in the AC room.
The restaurant is not recommended at all. We only ate once and the food was terrible.
During the day, you might expect the restaurant is full with divers. Divers from all over Bali and other dive operators usually start their wreck dive from Puri Madha. Puri Madha's dive operator is recommended with nice guide and very cheap.
I definitely will come back to Puri Madha, but definitely NOT for the food :P
