This is our fourth time back to Three Brothers and I love it.It does have its problems but I just love the rooms & the gardens and I can put up with its other faults just for these reasons.We always have a deluxe suite when we go and the rooms are massive and on the ground floor.There are only 12 of them in the hotel..There is a king size bed with lovely white cotton linen.The bed is comfortable & huge.I like the suites because they have an open air bathroom with a shower(which only dribbles) and a bath with a hand shower which has good pressure and this was what we used.They have now added soap & shampoo bottles which was a feature they didnt have before.I would still bring my own as they are rather basic.The suites have a DVD player & big screen TV but the TV channels are mostly Indonesian with only 2 English channels and nothing to watch.Didnt bother me as I dont watch TV.The airconditioning works very well and is quiet.There is a bar fridge which is small but can take a few bottles and milk etc.No kettles so if you like your cup of tea in the morning make sure you bring one with you.
The breakfasts are very simple with a choice of fruit salad or reconstituted juice(very sweet) and the choice of 1 egg to your taste & toast.If you like big buffet breakfasts then dont go here.The breakfast is tiny but was more than enough for us.The staff used to be quite sour faced in the restaurant but seem more cheerful and have more English now too.
It is still difficult to get a pool towel out by the pool but we just drip dried.It was very clean and inviting.There are not many chairs by the pool but lawn you can sit on if you are not luck enough to get one.
Now the downside.When you make your booking through the website you will get a confirmation of your booking.DO NOT BELIEVE you have a room waiting for you until you personally email the hotel.I have booked for Oct this year and went to choose my room only to find that they had no record of my booking or a room saved for me and 2 others in our party.There seems to be alot of lack of communiction between the booking agent and the hotel.Do not just turn up and expect your room to be there without confirming at least a couple of times,especially just before you leave.You may be disappointed.We had towels brought from home disappear from the front door steps where they had been hung to dry but it could have been anyone including other tourists that may have taken them.There are no room safes inside your room so you need to use the front desk.I havent had anything stolen from my room and find the cleaning staff to be friendly and efficient but its always better to be safe than sorry with your cash.
Falling cocnuts are another problem and this may sound silly but we had 4 near misses with coconuts falling on the paths in front of us from the trees.Luckily we havent had a hit but they would be deadly if they did.I think maybe some trimming from the palms around the paths may be a good idea.You often hear thumps around the gardens as they come down.
I love the wildlife around the gardens and three brothers also has its resident monkey who is gorgeous and affectionate.Make sure you go and give her a good scratch as she loves it and let her groom your hair.There are geckos,bats,lizards,squirrels and an abundance of birds.Lovely to sit on your verandah at dawn and watch them all.
I love three brothers as a place to stay but it isnt for all.If you like to be waited on by the staff and treated like a king then do not go here.It more for the back packer and person who is happy to do their own thing and organise their meals out of the hotel.No swim up bar and not really a bar to buy drinks at all really.You can get beers but Id rather go to the Mini mart next door and keep them in your room.Happy for anyone to contact me regarding anything about the hotel.
