We LOVED this hotel!! The views - WOW! The room - WOW WOW!! But I have to make a few comments.
The food was not at all what it should be. We only ate one dinner and one breakfast in our two night stay, and neither were very good. Food was not hot enough, breakfast was very unappetising, and there never seemed to be a bar open (though one of the supervisors did tell me I could get a cocktail if I liked, but when the time came I wasn't sure where to go).
The staff have very limited English. I appreciate that we are in Bali, and expect limited English (if any!) in smaller Warungs, but in an impressive hotel like Puri Candikuning, I did expect to be able to communicate. There never seemed to be a supervisor around when you needed one.
There was no information in the room at all. Nothing. No flyer, no info sheet. Nothing. There was no map of the area, no safe. And when I asked for a hair dryer, no one had any idea. I really did love this place. I loved the private feel of the room. I felt like a star sitting on my balcony in my own exclusive world. But it could have been SO much more!!!!!
