We returned back to Spartacvs on 27th December 2013 until 5th January 2014 (following our visit in March 2013 - see that review).
Upon arrival at the new Bali airport terminal, we were greeted by one of the staff, Ketut, who we knew from our previous stay. His beaming smile and waving arm were a dead giveaway that he remembered who we were.
Upon arrival at Spartacvs we were met by the owner Craig who greeted us warmly at reception. He also mentioned that he had read our March review and before we knew it, a reading lamp for our room was supplied :-) - nice touch Craig.
We stayed in the Garden Room - our favourite. We have no complaints about the room - but Craig has advised that he plans to replace the mirrors in the bathroom area (slight water damage, but nothing that worried us too much). The aircon worked well
Our stay was during New Year and we paid AUD25 for bruchetta, chicken wings and a bar b q dinner of fish, steak, salads and a complimentary bintang. We also received a show of local go-go boys and drag queen and also a performance by the spartacvs boys (staff) - it was all very well done. There was a plentiful amount of food and was all very tasty.
As I have said previously, it's the staff that make Spartacvs. All the guys are so friendly and very helpful. They will always say good morning/afternoon and ask after our wellbeing and welcome us back after a day out. Marde at reception and Nico in the restaurant deserve special mention from us, they treated us so well - from ensuring that we were enjoying ourselves on NYE to appearing to enjoy it when they see us and we start chatting. But all the guys at Spartacvs are very special, lovely people - a big THANKYOU to all of you guys - don't change!
It's nice to go to breakfast each day and know that by the time you're finished, a couple of the guys have been into your room and made it as spotless as it was when you first check in. And for those of you worried about Dengue Fever (I have had it once prior and have a tendency to be a little paranoid about it) - the guys doing the evening turndown service provide mosquito coils in the bathroom area and spray the bedroom with mosquito spray and air freshener spray - provides that little bit of piece of mind!
We have noticed changes at the hotel, from removal of trees damaging the pool area, change of pool recliners matresses to new restaurant breakfast menu and Craig has also mentioned other plans he has for the hotel - so things will only get better.
Thankyou to all at Spartacvs and see you next time.
