The Jayakarta Bali Beach Resort

Reviewed February 3, 2012

I have stayed at the Jayakart In January 2011 & 2012 and would return. Fantastic location, safe & secure, beauutiful gardens, friendly attention staff and great facilities. Short walk to fabulous restaurants and central to Kuta & Seminyak. Rooms are not flash but comfortable. Be sure to ask for 300 block - best location in the resort. Great resort for families, children can wander with safety. Love the Jayakarta !!

Room Tip: Book a deluxe room in block 300. Handy position to pools etc...

My husband and I stayed at the Jayakarta for four nights in January 2011. We booked a 1 bedroom apartment, as the price wasn't much different to the other rooms. Upon arrival at the main lobby, they looked for our booking then told us we needed to go to a different lobby, half way across the hotel. When we arrived at that lobby, they were eventually able to book us in to our room. We were shown to our room, which was near the front road entrance to the hotel, pretty far away from the pool and restaurant.

The room itself is large, but not very nice. The decor is in desperate need of an upgrade, the fridge didn't get very cold, the tv's are tiny and the bed was hard. There was electrical sockets and wiring hanging out of the wall where the tv was plugged in, and mould in most corners of the apartment. There was a dirty dress hanging on the chair on the balcony, and it didn't belong to us! The bathroom is pretty bad, fairly disgusting on the floor around and behind the toilet, and the door wouldn't slide open all the way. The toilet flusher would get jammed and keep flushing constantly if you didn't notice. The layout of the bathroom was really poor, with next to no spare space. I have heard that some privately owned and rented apartments are VERY nice, but we booked direct through the hotel and I wouldn't recommend them. Our first morning was pouring with rain, and we had no umbrella in our room. We went downstairs to the little lobby below, and they said to go ask main reception for an umbrella. When we asked at main reception (after having run through pouring rain to get there), they tell us they will have one sent to our room with the cleaners... in the mean time, they didn't even have one in reception that we could borrow to get to breakfast. Luckily a security guard offered to walk us over there using his umbrella.

The pools are nice, with the large square pool (attached to the kids pool) being warmest, and the pool with the bar being quite cold (in January it wasn't very hot during the day, so that pool was too cold). The restaurant is ok, not too expensive, and meals were adequate. Breakfast has a reasonable selection, though they need more drinking glasses (there was always people waiting for glasses to be washed).

We were travelling in a party of around 20 people (extended family). Almost every single person got sick on this trip to Bali. While they may not have gotten sick from stuff they ate or drank at this hotel, I don't think the conditions of the hotel helped at all. Mouldy rooms and dirty hallways can't help your immune system when it's trying to fight off a bug. One morning I noticed cat poop and a puddle (most likely cat urine) in our hallway, and it was still there late into the day. I got sicker than I've ever been in my life, and we had to extend our trip by a night, as I couldn't fly home. The doctor wasn't available until 12pm, and was very expensive, though the hotel were easy to deal with when it came to extending the trip by one night. I was glad to check out and go home the next day.

Overall, it's an average to below-average hotel. The pool is nice, but that's about it. The staff weren't all that helpful, and their english wasn't very good. We stayed at the Padma in November, and while this is half the price of the Padma, it's less than half the quality. If we ever return to Bali, we will not be staying at the Jayakarta.

Room Tip: Tip for a good room - stay somewhere else. Otherwise, the pool view rooms weren't as bad as the...

Have stayed at the Jayakarta hotel 3 times in 2011 for the price it is pretty average hotel, but the location is excellent. It is right on Legian beach and has quiet a few restuarants and warungs only metres away. The rooms are standard and the buffet breakfast is ok but they have alot of little white ants in the restaurant. We chose not to eat there and would go to the cafes on the beach. The hotel has 3 swimming pools and free wifi around the pool area. yes I would stay again coz I love where it is and I only need a room to sleep in so it doesn't worry me that it isn't that flash. About 100 metres down on the beach walking towards Seminyak there are about 4 - 5 warungs right on the beach and they have huge bean bags and you can sit there all day drinking and eating, it is especially great watching the sunset and most nights they have bands playing and fireworks and the food and drinks are cheap.

This was probably a very nice hotel years ago, in it's heyday. But now it's just shabby, outdated, run down, poorly maintained and frankly an all round gross out. Bathroom was smelly and moldy, dirty furniture was worn out and shabby, no wifi, no in-room safe box and old style door hardware is not safe and not secure. Major creep out was that the bed sheets were stained and dirty with the previous occupants body oil soaked into the sheets, so disgusting! And front desk staff didn't seem to care at all. Breakfast was inedible with apathetic staff, I got sick from the dinner. The neighborhood and beach is filthy with garbage everywhere. Couldn't wait to leave. Skip this hotel.

There is a difference between Jayakarta apartments and Jayakarta motel rooms. We stayed at the Jayakarta Apartments and found it wonderful. The rooms were clean and roomy. The staff were very helpful. We have a 14year old son and the 1 bedroom apartment was perfect. It has a separate bedroom and a foldout in the loungeroom with its own TV so you shut the door and it is like a 2 bedroom apartment. The rooms have a mini fridge and microwave and tea and coffee facilities.You have access straight onto the beach from behind the motel and a supermarket and restaurants within 2 minutes walk along the beach.

Room Tip: The apartments are at the front of the property away from the pool and noise.

We came to here for four weeks and was the worst holiday we have ever had. We had no sleep for 10 days due to schoolies partying all night and running through the corridors and knocking on everyones doors, riding bikes in hallways....partying in pool all hours of night......sex in pools leaving condoms in and around pool area...security had no idea of how to control these louts....made me embarrassed to say Im Australian....we would never go back to this hotel ever....
I actually feel sorry for the balinese in trying to cope with this Aussie invasion of rude, obnoxious, things that are to be our future generation how embarrassing
for all the Aussie parents who let these ferrel animals out of Oz..You should be ashamed of yourself for their disgusting behaviour, it reflects back on their upbringing....location is the best with lots of great restaurants on the beach within walking distance...grounds are well kept....all staff ..BUT not the front counter are very helpful.
I know it's an old hotel could do with some TLC...
Management just give lip service or ignore problems hoping it or you will go away.
Such a shame could be a really great hotel with it's location and grounds and 3 good size pools
If I Had of done a review after 2010 holiday there it would have been a great review........

we paid for a delux room and got a standard room,which was tiny.
the bath room stank on certain days,and the towels were old dirty stained and frayed.
the breakfast was sub standard,so most mornings we ate out.
this hotel is 2 star at best.
the pools and the gardens are very nice,
we have been to bali 5 times before and have never complained, until i made this unfortunate choice.
there are much better choices in the same area, the location is good.
