This was the last minute booking I made but they had rooms on the Easter weekend. The price was a lot lesser than most hotels in the vicinity of Legian beach in Kuta. The hotel is on the side lane from the main road leading to the beach, which is good because you dont want to hear the music and noise from nearby restaurants when you want to retire back to your room. The rooms are little cottages, have AC, spacious room and spacious bathroom. The place also has a pool, pool bar and wifi like any big resort and it is 2 minutes walk from the beach. What else can you ask for? I am surprised the hotel is not so popular in terms of booking. Seems like people want high priced rooms to believe the room is good. I needed to cancel 2 nights booking and head back home for an emergency and the hotel manager agreed and spoke to the booking agency to refund also. I am more than happy to recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: Look for a hotel on the side lanes to get great vs

Stayed here twice over 12 months...to many people handling room bookings so you cant be secure in that you will get the room you thought you were paying for from home! Crappy way to start a holiday being put in run down rooms and having to haggle a price again for the better rooms you stayed in last time! Yes pool etc is too run down now and nobody else seems to have mentioned on these reviews my main reason for not returning there is THE CATS everywhere and everything smells of cat urine...including supposedly clean towels that appear on cottage porch in mornings. The pool lounges and surrounds stunk of it...I bought a heap of my own towels! Until this place gets a complete upgrade I will give it a miss....ps FOOTNOTE Great private tour operater in Bali for personalised tours WHATEVER Spirit of Bali Made Black +6281338056979 great air con vans and Made speaks great English and a great guy ...tell him Belinda from West Oz recommended!)

We stayed at GVC for the 3rd time and even though there were some problems, in that some of our party couldn't get the rooms that were booked until after a couple of days, manager said they were overbooked but to us it seemed more like one big group whose organiser was telling the staff how they could allocate rooms, even got to the stage that when we got our rooms we were asked not to let on to "so and so" that they gave us the rooms!!!! Seems that if you come with a large group and make enough noise you can intimidate them into overlooking bookings that have been made much earlier - think this is more the owner's fault than the staff in my opinion.
All this aside we managed to get our rooms (superior) and enjoyed our stay, couple of minor complaints - sure the pool furniture really does need to be replaced - it is exactly the same ones that were there for my first stay 7 years ago and now in disrepair - but I have heard it is on the agenda to be done as well as the old pool refurbished. The pool is too deep for most people unless you hang around the steps near the pool bar and get in the way of other people (which one group did continually) but other than this it is fine and after all you are paying budget rates (we did anyway) for what is advertised as a fairly basic hotel in a great location.
The Superior rooms were fine, everything worked and we were very comfortable and the Deluxe are even better, they don't have tea & coffee facs but we took our own anyway. Breakfast is not buffet but cooked when you order it and is perfectly adequate.
Front office staff, Putu, Desi, Nyoman and the rest are always willing to help if they can, in fact Putu apologised to us almost everyday for the problems in the beginning.
New Sports Bar is great and well patronised and the new Spa is terrific, Tina gives the best foot massage I have ever had.
Would we stay again, yes if we can get the same or similar rate we will, love the location so central to everything and after all your room is only to sleep in.

We picked this hotel due to location as it was near the beach & to other accomodation that some other family was staying. We picked it out of a brochure that the travel agent showed us, who ensured us that it met certain standards. We didn't want anything really fancy but something clean, basic & relaxing. At all times the staff were friendly. However, the place is in such disrepair - the pool area is in badly need attention- tiles falling off the pool, pool furniture falling apart & no pool towels unless you get there at 6:30 am! The rooms are another story! We booked 2x std rooms- what a shock! Dirty painted cement floors, deteriorating & smelly bathrooms, rusting refridgerators & faulty light fittings. We asked to upgrade, but had to wait till the next evening until there were delux rooms available. Until then, we had to put up with the less than ideal conditions, plus the Karoke (till 3am) with the next door sports bar, & the loud rooster inbetween. The delux rooms were much improved, & are apparently the newer part of the establishment, but they too are starting to need maintenance. This place needs a complete overhaul before we would stay there again.

The hotel did not have the rooms we paid for,despite several checks to see if there was a priblem. The manager lied to us and our travel companions. The pool was never cleaned the place is a disgrace. If you want to avoid Bali Belly do not eat the food from that kitchen!. The pool furniture needs burning, no pool towels available by 9am each day. The breakfast staff were unable to undersand what we wanted so even though we had paid we went else where to eat.
