I've just stayed at Citra Lestari for about 4 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had one of the newer aircon rooms at the back, which was very clean and simply, but nicely furnished. The room has a good size outdoor bathroom and a comfy double bed, which seemed brand new. Big terrace out front with a sofa for lounging about. One thing to keep in mind is that the room is only serviced every few days, as is normal in most good value places. But if you need replacement towels or a sweep of your floor (white tiles!) you can always ask and staff is happy to help.
The gardens surrounding the cottages are beautiful and well maintained; the pool is small but perfect for cooling off. If you fancy the beach it's just across the road. At night it's quiet, if you don't count the occasional confused rooster that may wake you a few hours earlier than sunrise, but that's just life in Asia I feel.
Breakfast was always tasty, you've got a choice between a few things so you can vary. Staff is cheerful and friendly, greeting you by name and are happy to help.
Overall I had a lovely time there and wouldn't hesitate to come back at all. In fact, I think I might plot my return soon.More
