“Good location, clean rooms”
Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

Booked after reading reviews, not disappointed. The hotel pictures are never what actual place is. So first impression was skewed. They are under major construction ---so expect a big messy noisy construction site. Remember-it isn't like other countries and so the work seemed to vary in time and effort. Great Indian food and the sheesha bar seems to be very popular in evenings.
Downfall of the bungalows is they back onto houses (?) so the noise transfer is loud and a little uncomfortable. Good location, only a few minutes walk from fast boat drop off.

Stayed in pesona for 3 nights in feb-march with my boyfriend. We spent nights in 4 other hotels as well, and this one was the cleanest but also the most expensive.
The room was cleaned daily but the bedsheets and towels were not changed which was a shame.
The breakfast was good and pretty large.
The best thing about the hotel is the location and the fact that it is so quiet. They also claimed to have a weekly pest-control, which is great and definitely not common on trawangan.
Tip:ask for the breakfast in your room and have it on your balcony

We stayed here for 2 nights, the hotel is in a great location. Not right next to the pier, but close enough. The staff is very friendly and we felt so safe there as their is video surveillance of the whole property. The little restaurant that they have is great place to lounge and the Indian food is fantastic! The pool is nice with the bar right there. We stayed in one of the cottages which worked out great for us. I recommend staying at Pesona Resort!

Room Tip: The cottage we stayed in was great!

I have not stayed here but had to cancel due to a last minute change in circumstances and they gave me a full refund. This was contrary to their booking policy so I am very grateful - based on this I would recommend them as the customer service was excellent.

This place was in the perfect spot. My boyfriend and I stayed here and had a great experience. Staff were lovely and accommodating. People come and go at all hours and the noise travels but we're in our late 20's so weren't too bothered. The sheesha area is cool for chilling after a big day of diving or other activities before heading out and also provides an excellent view at breakfast time

we stayed at persona for christmas and got woken up every night by fire works at some ungodly hour and yes we were told that they only go off at christmas but that doesnt change the fact we were worken up night after night after night which is espically horrible when your in bed sick with bali belly. the indian restraunt was good for dinner, but the free breakfast that came with the room price was horrible!! the banana pancake was the worst ive had in indonesia. so we went up the road for breakfast evey morning. we were staying in bungalow 2 and the shower water stunk so badly we had to buy bottled water every day to shower in. it smelt like raw sewage and judging by other posts its an on going issue. my partner and i have been to indo 9 times so we know what to expect but persona is easily the worst value for money. we are coming back in sept and will be staying somewhere else, somewhere where your not expected to shower in sewage.

Room Tip: dont get bungalow 2!!!!!

The location is really good close to everything. The music was quite loud from the surrounding parties nights but we didn’t mind as we are in our 20’s. We got the cheapest room with A/C it was fine with everything we needed except the shower water smelt like sewage water, we aren’t fussy but the bathroom wasn’t well ventilated so it really smelt bad in there after you had a shower. It got to the point that we didn’t want to have a shower because we felt more dirty after. Other than that the staff were very friendly our room was always cleaned nicely and the Indian restaurant is a really cool place to chill out and the Indian food is amazing!!

Room Tip: pay the little bit more extra to get a better room than standard
