I stayed for 2 nights in two different types of room.
The first one is the Suite Ocean View. It was located on the 2nd floor of the building at the farthest area from lobby. It has a balcony facing the ocean, it was nice and the room has a lot of light from the big window. The size of the room was huge. Moreover the bathroom. But the interior placement was a bit awkward. They placed sink right next to bed while there was a useless "stone garden" inside the bathroom. There's only shower in the bathroom and they should have more light in it. There's a closet in the bathroom but it looks aged and worn, I didn't used it. The mattress was ok. There was also a TV (TV signal was ok, showing local station only) and air conditioner.
The second room was the standard one. It was located closer to lobby, but the room itself was much darker that the Suite Ocean. The bed was an old fashion bed with netting, the mattress was ok. The sink was still located in the bed room area but in a better placement, in front of bath room door (not next to bed). The bathroom is an outdoor bathroom, spacious with bathtub and shower. There was an dark-weird (a bit scary) area that has an ancient closet next to our bed. They should place a lamp there, and more lights in the room. Oh and, this room has no TV but has air conditioner.
Noise Level in the hotel: Quite, relaxing.
Location of the hotel: the hotel was located on the other side of main area of the island, which is Jungut Batu. So you have to drive quite far through Lembongan's main road, passing forest and cemetery. For a superstitious person like me, it was a bit scary driving through main road at night. But it was ok, nothing superstitious happened.
It was a bit far from public restaurant that offer good price and good taste since those restaurants are in Jungut Batu. But main road to Nusa Ceningan Island, Devil Tears and Dream Beach are within the area.
Facility: It has a small swimming pool next to lobby, I didn't swim in it though. Well, it didn't look dirty when I was there even some kids and adults were swimming. Maybe they just had it cleaned, well I don't know for sure.
Food Resto: I ordered Mie Goreng (Fried Noodle), it was good in taste and in portion. I also had free breakfast in the morning (inclusive to our booking), the pineapple pancake tasted so so. For breakfast, I'd rather have a big portion of Indomie Goreng (fried noodle) from a stall near the hotel :D
In conclusion, for a hotel in remote area like Lembongan, I had a nice stay in Tamarind. But for next time, I'll probably try other hotel in Jungut Batu.
