Lets be honest here, the grounds of this hotel are just magnificent. It is located right on the beach, which is kept very clean and the pool, whilst not as deep as some guests would like, was perfect for my family. My wife and our three children (all 4 1/2 years old) stayed at the Patra for 7 days. The kids loved the kids club and after initially not wanting to go, ended up asking us if they could go just to see their new friends (the friendly staff). We stayed in a deluxe suite close to the Kids Club and found the room to be spacious in accommodating the 5 of us and very clean. The deluxe suite has two balconies. The decor may need a little refreshing, but this is only a very minor issue.
We understand that people would have liked flat screen TV's in their rooms and I'm sure its a common complaint, but the kids had their own TV and we had one in the master suite and it was more than adequate for us. The rooms are kept very clean and housekeeping was very quick to change the kids bedding when one of them dropped their drink on the sheets. For the three kids, two of them shared a sofa bed and one had a cot bed set up. The master suite also had a sliding partition door so the TV in the master suite wouldn't disturb the children at night.
We found the breakfast to be great as well, with enough variety to keep you interested. The staff actually also cooked pancakes for our kids especially one day, which was fantastic. We used the free shuttle service to the Discovery Mall and found this to be very handy as it is a fair walk there, especially on a hot day.
All in all, it was a great stay and I will certainly like to come back here one day. The staff were great and we were very sad to go. The hotel is perfect for families, is competitively priced and is away from the hustle and bustle of Kuta, but close enough that it doesn't cost you an arm or a leg to get there.
Get a Deluxe Suite if you are a family. You will be grateful for the extra room.
