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!!
