This is an excellent family hotel, on a quiet black-sand beach. The gardens are beautiful, and the staff are very friendly. There were many families with children there, which was perfect for us (we have two elementary aged-boys). The restaurant had very good food and a good variety. The hotel is very isolated, and it is almost impossible to arrange your own transportation from the hotel. The rates for the day-trips are terribly expensive, so the best option is to hire your own car and driver when you arrive in Bali and keep them with you for the full time (which can be done quite cheaply in Denpasar).
The rooms were very large and comfortable, although they smelled a bit humid and the AC took a long time to cool the room. Overall we were very happy with the experience and would recommend this hotel if you like to be away from the hustle and bustle of things further south.More
