my second trip to bali, we booked our entire trip of 11 nights here based on the trip advisor reviews and it was worth every dollar. will definitely be back.
situated on jalan melasti we had everything we wanted within walking distance, and i don't like to walk! less than 30,000idr ($3aud) taxi to waterbom/discovery. and less than 20,000idr back, and around 25,000idr to places like kuta square, hard rock and beachwalk.
the hotel staff are just amazing, everyone from room staff, reception, the pool boys, travel desk, restaurant staff and especially the security guys who will look after you - make sure you only get in a bluebird taxi. i asked them where the best place to change money was, they made sure we went to the reputable place inside the indomart rather than the dodgy guy on the street.
i couldn't recommend this place high enough, and are planning to be back in 12 months
the mozzarella restaurant in the hotel is great, though if you want cheap, good value for money, mostly western meals be sure to check out Sheppies, about 50m towards the beach, we ate there most nights.
-Great value for money
-good location, can do all the typical bali shopping (sunnies, singlets, shorts, dresses, shirts etc. within 200m of the hotel)
-tours desk are brilliant
-buffet breakfast is great western with a little bit of local
-room is cleaned/beds made/towels changed dailey
-housekeeping spray the room for mosquitos nightly, even though we were there in wet season and only saw one mosquito in the room for the entire 11 nights
-pool and pool bar are great
-complementary bottled water in the room, refilled every time housekeeping entered the room
-spa is great, worth every bit more than what it is down the street
CONS- just to be picky
-Balconies only have one little day bed/chair, which was pretty inconvenient if we wanted to sit out there and have a few drinks.
-room is lacking power points, not a huge issue but bring a power board if you want to chage a couple of phones and a tablet
-the shower smells funny for the first 45 seconds or so, have to run it and leave the room then come back to it. might have just been our room
-room floor tiles are VERY slippery when wet, condensation build up caused my unsuspecting girlfriend to have a hard fall.
-laundry cost is pretty expensive
-pool only gets 4 hours of sun a day (10am-2pm)
these cons should in no way influence you not to stay at the Magani.
