Still a top hotel even after almost 30 years, wonderful gardens surround a massive pool. The location is fantastic, with shops and restaurants on your doorstep. Kuta beach is also a very short walk. The rooms are great with great views from the balcony Breakfast is superb with a massive buffet providing something for everyone. Would love to come back one day.
"Bait & Switch"
We went to their Friday night seafood buffet because the sign showed lobster and they advertised lobster on the buffet. When we looked over all the food, there was no lobster to be seen. I thought maybe the dish for it was just empty so I ate other food and waited. After a while I looked again and still no lobster, so I asked the guy behind the food where the lobster was, he said just wait. So we waited and waited and waited, lobster never showed up. Frankly the rest of the buffet was not that impressive and definitely not worth the 325,000 Rp price. When we paid, the lady asked us if we enjoyed it, I said no, I came because you offered lobster and there was none. She said "oh, it is because of the weather". Total BS, all the other restaurants tanks were filled with lobster. When she brought my change she said they just got in some lobster if I wanted some. At 9:30 at night, I don't think so! She knew we were full and finished, so her gesture was meaningless and a slap in the face. No offer of a discount, or a coupon for a free meal. This place does not understand honesty or customer service at all. I would never go back for any reason!
A staff of 100's willing to help you out whenever it's required. Breakfast buffet leaves no stone unturned as it covers all continents with the food offered. A little pricey around the pool but food is A class. Massive pool (and kid's pool) set overlooking the ocean with lovely surrounding gardens and pond. Many activities on offer and lots of space to get lost.
"Great family escape"
We have been here for a week and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kids club facilities although small were ample to keep our 7 year old entertained. The staff have been very attentive. The rooms them self are lovely with comfy beds. The location is wonderful it is so easy to pop out for a walk through the streets of busy kuta. We celebrated out anniversary here and the staff organised a lovely in room suprise for us. The pools are large and quite deep. The kids pool had plenty of shade provided by a sun shade. The hotel grounds are lovely.
Great place to stay right where you need to be in Bali staff very friendly good breakfast nice pool and spa great place to chill from the bustle of Kuta every thing is close great for shopping / beach / waterpark.
