Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An oasis of peace on the busy northern coast road. Nice bungalows, good restaurant and very friendly staff. Nothing better then a fresh fruit juice while laying on the beds at the beach. They took good care of me, would love to go back some day.

Not bad for a few nights. Beautiful garden layout with many trees and plants. We stayed in a bungalow with shower and bathroom outside. It was okay but not our preference. In the room no TV and fridge. There is a nice restaurant but no music or entertainment. Dinner and lunch menu was good and the food we had was great, also the staff is very friendly. One morning we had the breakfast menu to order from which was very good with great fresh juice, fresh cut fruit, fresh strong coffee and good food. Next day they served a buffet which was soso and limited, no asian food but surprisingly they offered french fries and pancakes. The food was not very warm either. All in all a nice hotel for a few days stay like we did on our roundtrip of Bali. Last but not least a 3% surcharge for credit card payment.

Beautiful grounds on the property, with lots of places to rest and relax. The room was comfy once we figured out how to best control the A/C. The outdoor shower was a real treat, though it was a little awkward to use the toilet outdoors where the next-door neighbor could hear. The food was great at the hotel. It would be nice if they offered filtered water refills instead of me having to purchase bottled water since there's quite a bit of trash in the ocean. I enjoyed walking to the turtle hatchery next door and releasing one in the morning while I was there.

is a beautiful place with excellent customer service and lovely gardens and fresh flowers in the room. the swimming pool is also really Nice. however i am giving 4 out of 5 for the following reasons: 1) only plastic bottle water was provided. i would enjoy more eco-friendly water-refilling stations. would be great be great if you can join "Refill Bali" 2)toilet paper rolls and glasses in the rooms were all wrapped up in plastic. There is no need to wrap these items in plastic (many hotels dont wrap). if you want to wrap, use paper bags like some other hotels. there is enough plastic in the ocean. 4) please don't use plastic straws. use paper straws. possibly don't put a straw. Many cafe's put papers straws with the Salt and paper towels on the table so people grab one only if they want it. 5)the garden was slightly overpruned. it would be nicer to have more higher trees for better shade. 6) One of the main attractions of this hotel is that its on the beach. Unfortunately during parts of the year there can be alot of rubbish washed on to the shore by the tide. as much as possible Clean the beach and provide more plastic bins. allot of tourists like to pick up some of the rubbish to leave the beach cleaner then how they found it.

Pondok Sari is a gem of a lush garden set on the beach at Pemuteran. Lush does not come naturally here. The garden needs watering. The result is certainly worth the effort. The resort is made of bungalows nestled between trees and bushes. Our deluxe bungalow had two stories. On the ground floor was our large bedroom. It had a desk and a sitting area. All of which we cluttered with stuff and clothes. We had no reason to linger indoors. Thus no real use for the sofa and desk. The upper floor is open on the sides and thus has no air conditioning. It had a table and a day bed. Both excellent locations for a nightcap. In short: room, garden setting, and location are perfect. Food at the restaurant is good. The restaurant spreads from the pool to the beach. We enjoyed having our breakfast at the beach. At dinner, we preferred a table under a large tree. I can highly recommend the Ayun Sate. The chicken skewers are served on a miniature charcoal grill. Pondok Sari has a central location within Pemuteran. Many Warungs (small restaurants) are within short walking distance. All the Warungs we visited had good food. Eating in an around Pondok Sari never gets boring. The next-door hotel Taman Sari also has a restaurant on the beach. Food here is fabulous. Definitely worth the short walk. We also checked out the hotel grounds at Taman Sari and like Pondok Sari better. Both hotels are somewhat similar in style. Taman Sari has more of a manicured garden and wide-open spaces. I prefer the charm and coziness of the Pondok Sari garden. The best thing about Pondok Sari is its pool. It may not be very large but is set in a garden that provides shade and charm. Right next to the pool is a lily pond. A Buddha statue watches over the pool. I was mesmerized by that statue. I could have spent hours (probably did) laying on my back staring at that Buddha wondering if its gaze was following me. Maintenance at Pondok Sari could be upgraded a notch. Room, restaurant, and pool were in top shape. Well maintained and cleaned. The garden had a couple of huts that could have been used to lay down in the shade. These, however, were too dusty to be used. Some were cluttered with various stuff. One had trash left by inconsiderate guests but never cleaned out. Many beach chairs also had seen better days. Cushions all had seen better days. Some beach chairs were damaged. A quick safety check before laying down is recommended.

We thought if we book by Werner lau dive center that it would be necessary to stay in the Pondok resort. Well this is not necessary and around there are better hotel options. The houses/ bungalows are old and need renovation and the atmosphere is comparable with other hotels we visited cheap and old fashioned. The restaurant FOOD is good but the chairs and tables are dirty and glue. Without a towel I will not sit down. The old tree is beautiful and it needs not a lot to make the resort more comfortable and Bali style. The garden and the pool is beautiful and well covered. My recommendation to stay is Taman Sari next door.

The service and accomodation is true to Balinese traditions with a laid back atmosphere, this place is one of the least untouched environments with snorkelling any turtle rehabilitation on the coast and lest tourists from its well known sister locations. Highly recommend, all the staff and locals here are amazing and will be sure to accomodate.

Stayed here for 5 nights and it really is a beautiful resort. The rooms are superb and cleaned thoroughly everyday. The staff were all friendly and helpful at all times. Breakfast was included and was cooked to order each morning. I would happily stay here again.

The Pondok Sari is probably one of the prettier hotels in the Gerokgak area (West Bali). The architecture is truly unique, and each building originated from a part of Indonesia and was brought here and reconstructed. Each building is unique, and amazing touches are found throughout the hotel, such as Art Deco artifacts (see photos). The small wooden buildings are set in the most luscious tropical garden, it, was like Eden. The swimming pool is truly idilyc, a dreamy Buddhist place, gorgeous! This hotel enjoys a large black sand beach, with many lounges. Drinks can be ordered. We had a double, with a sitting area, and and outdoor terrace. All rooms are air conditioned. Our little bungalow had an outdoor shower (very private). The beds are a bit hard, but acceptable. The staff were very friendly and attentive. On arrival, we found flower petals on the bed and a small welcome note. The room was serviced daily and it was very clean. In spite of the fact that the entire place is beautifully crafted, age is beginning to show, and some renovations may be necessary. The food is served in an open, large restaurant/bar. The value for money is good, and the food is tasty. Oh, yes, the hotel has a dive center. The snorkeling right off the beach is decent. Recommended.
