“Another Experience - Another Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Yes, I like to travel and try new experiences. This was our third hotel stay on Bali during this trip, the first being in the quiet location of Benoa, the second in Kuta and now Legian.

We had booked through Wotif and were happy with what we paid. We had booked two rooms in the Garden Bungalows for my partner and two teenage children. Wotif requested an additional payment of $50 per night for single bed configuration for the kids - I'd thought I'd throw caution to the wind and see what the hotel offered on arrival.

Nothing different in the arrival which we said we would be doing around 3.00pm. You are greeted and welcomed by the reception staff who without any comment on our behalf said that the kids room would be single beds and ours would be king - at no extra cost. That's a win!!

Reception stated that we could only occupy the kids room as our room had not be prepared/serviced from the previous occupier/s - hang on tic - this is after 3.00pm??

We were escorted to the kids room and again was informed that we would have to wait until 6.00pm for our room to be serviced. We filled in the afternoon by exploring the hotel and surrounds. By 6.30pm the better half has had enough and heads up to reception to see when our room was going to be available - when obviously the change over of reception staff had not passed on the message that we were waiting to occupy our room - hence it was ready - however nobody had been informed.

Anyway, the Garden Bungalow rooms were great. Roomy, a comfortable bed and your usual bathroom amentities provided for a hotel of this calibre. There were no complaints from the kids.

The general surrounds of the hotel are clean and tidy, your typical hotel style, but it is ageing. Swimming in the pool was relaxing and refreshing. Finding a rather large piece/chunk of the pool wall concrete confirmed my thoughts that time was near for refurbishment.

Breakfast is of your usual typical hotel fare. There was nothing over the top.

Restaurants are aplenty nearby with an assortment of tastes and cost if you are not prepared to dine at the hotel.

Overall it was enjoyable. I'm unsure if I would recommend this Hotel in a hurry - but the kids enjoyed it from the previous hotel we had stayed days earlier in Kuta.

One thing - watch out for the mosquitos in your room. Yes, I know this is Bali and I have lived in the tropics of Western Australia and well aware of fogging etc. But these little fella's just didn't stop popping up. It's not a complaint - just a note!!

Room Tip: Mosquitos are not your friend. Garden Bungalows situated at the back near the tennis court if you ar...

After seeing the location and pool area on the beach of this hotel during our last trip, it was the only place we looked at booking. I won't make that mistake again. As I said location and pools are excellent but not to much else. Rooms are getting old, buffet breakfast is that of a 4 star hotel, pool bar very expensive (it was obvious when happy hour was). As already mentioned on here a game of tennis was going to cost about $75, and our friends a got nice surprise when they received a bill of $50 to get 3 singlets and a pair of shorts washed. As a positive the staff were great and very friendly.

I wouldn't stay here again or recommend, bit disappointing when an expensive resort is paid for but service and facilities at cheaper lower star resorts far exceed this.

Room Tip: If you choose to stay here at a minimum book a deluxe garden bungalow.

Rooms were good, we stayed in a family room in the main building. Staff were friendly, good service. Restaurants had great food. Make sure you get breakfast included as this was great, sets you up for the day. Be aware the food has a 21% tax added on top of what you order. Facilities were good, pools were great. Location...you are in the thick of things at Legian. Can walk out of hotel and there are shops and restaurants along the road. Can walk into Kuta from here. We had a fabulous time at this resort. Very picturesque. Go to Norm's Bar down the road, nothing flash, but great service, they love Aussies.
The haggling is fierce out in the streets, be very careful with your money, they will rob you blind. There is a Kodak money changer right across the road, use them, they will not rip you off. The money changer in the shop next door to Kodak, is an absolute crook, and will steal your money right in front of you. Go somewhere else, also do not buy supplies from his shop, he will rob you and double the price of everything, there are two or three more allmarts down the road, and they are great, use them. Use Edo across the road at MBA tours, he's a nice guy and will organise your tours, or they have a tour desk in the hotel. At the back of the mart across the road, there is a day spa, not flash, but cheap and the girls are really nice, we had nails and hair done there, no problems. Be very choosy with tours, research first. Be aware of beggars on the streets, mainly women with babies, and little kids. Quite disturbing.

Room Tip: We had a room on the ground floor near the front entrance of resort near road, and didn't hear a...

Checked in at night to a room that had been occupied by smokers, not a good start it was really unpleasant. Started to unpack to be greeted by several armies of ants marching around in various locations, mostly up the wall into the aircon, which incidentally didn't work! We mentioned this to the man who showed up the room who went and got the ant spray and some disinfectant to take away the smell. It didn't so he showed us another room which didn't have to smoke smell, but still a broken aircon and the ants. We were then shown to a very nice clean bungalow we could move to if we paid an extra £500,
We stayed the night and changed hotels the next day! They say they have done refurbishment, but the pool area is very tatty with broken paving slabs.

I would say this is a good 2/3 star accommodation but don't book it if you are expecting more

Room Tip: Choose a bungalow. And pay extra, they Seem to service these better, maybe because They are dearer

We stayed in a Garden Bungalow and loved it. Nice and quiet, very comfortable and the hotel is in a great location.

A big bonus is the excellent breakfast. With a range to suit even the fussiest eaters, it makes breakfast time a hard choice. Although, I couldn't resist the bacon and nasi goreng for breakfast.

Room Tip: Go for the Garden Bungalows near the tennis courts, much quieter, no beach or road noise.

I booked this hotel very last minute on Agoda - when we arrived we then got upgraded which was very nice to a Superior Cottage - I then saw this happening for a lot of people I think if its quiet they just upgrade you! The Hotel is in a central position right on the beach and then out the front you just walk out and you are right at all the massage, pedicure, manicure and shopping! Which was perfect for us! You can walk into Kuta along the beach also to Seminyak but a taxi will only be about $5:00 too!! The rooms just need a bit of a renovation in terms of cracked tiles, still using actual keys for the doors and air con very loud. We normally stay at the Padma which is very modern but the Legian Beach is still really good value and I would stay here again as the price on Agoda was amazing. The Breakfast is beautiful with a seperate pancake & waffle level!!!

Room Tip: Always ask for a upgrade they seem to like doing it!

We have just return from our first visit to Bali and stayed at the Legian Beach Hotel for 13 nights, we are a family of 4 (2 son's aged 17 & 19). We enjoyed our time very much at the LBH, we booked 2 superior rooms (with a view).

After checking into our rooms with no view (103 & 105) and a patio area to a brick wall we went straight back to reception and asked why we were not in a room 'with a view' as we had booked. The staff were very helpful and explained to us that 'the view' rooms were all occupied. He explained to us that we could be moved in 2 days time (we understood and were happy with this). So the remainder of our holiday was spent in rooms 320 & 322 (with balconies and much better).

Overall we found the hotel very good, we found ALL the staff very friendly and we were always greeted, the pool and garden areas are beautiful and very relaxing, there is good security, the breakfast was great with lots of choice and great choice of areas for eating (loved the pancake bar) and also loved the beach patio area and the deck chairs facing the beach. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed a very relaxing holiday at the resort.

We had a late flight out of Bali and appreciated that the hotel allowed us to still use all the amenities, store luggage for the day and provide guests the facilities of a shower room with soap, shampoo, towels etc to freshen up at the end of the day before the flight home. We felt this was excellent and having spent the day by the pool swimming it was great to have a shower and change for our return flight.

We also spent a lot of time on the beach at 'Rob's Bar' and ate at many of the local restaurants nearby and found all to be very good and well priced. The only problem we found with traveling to Legian at this time of the year is the amount of rubbish that was washed up onto the beach during our stay, the first few days was ok (with some plastic in the water) and our son enjoyed hiring a surf board from the locals and surfing but then a few days later there was an overnight storm and the next day there was so much rubbish on the beach (from plastic, to bamboo to tree trunks), it took the locals days and days to clean up and the water was not good to swim or surf in at this time, that was very disappointing. But this is a problem with the season not the resort.

Thank you to the staff and the LBH for helping make our holiday and stay most enjoyable, very relaxing and stress free!!!
