I have stayed at this hotel twice - once in 2010 when I lived in Indonesia, and again in 2012 when I came back for a holiday. On the whole this is a nice hotel in a quiet area. There is a handy little swimming pool and it is a good place to meet other travellers. It is a short walk to the main beach / strip.
However, my second stay was slightly spoiled over a problem with the bicycle hire. I had hired a bike for myself and my girlfriend. Unfortunately, on the last evening of our stay my bike got stolen (which was my fault). I of course offered to pay for the bike but the owner of the hotel charged me Rp1,000,000!! I explained to him that I had payed Rp400,000 for a bike when I lived in Indonesia and even that was way too expensive, so 1 million was out of the question. He threatened to call the island security so I thought it was best to pay up just to avoid a scene. Even a guide who I met at the hotel and signed me up for a trek up Rinjani volcano confirmed that 1 million for a bike was a total rip-off.
This is a nice place to stay, but the service is a bit patchy and the manager has a really bad temper!
