My friend and I stayed here for a couple of days before heading to Ubud. It was very reasonably priced and had a lot going for it if you're looking for somewhere decent to stay on a budget. Nice rooms and beautiful pools and garden area - perfect for people just wanting a quiet place to lie around the pool. Definitely some room for improvement though - it's more three and a half stars rather than four.
Positives: reasonably priced, nice room decor, clean rooms, beautiful views to the ocean in distance from the room, buffet breakfast, beautiful pools and gardens, comfy beanbag chairs around the pool, friendly staff, restaurant food was very tasty (we had the banana leaf fish).
Negatives: is very remote (hidden and in a valley down a very long dark driveway, it's all in the name) and hard for taxis to find, difficult to flag a taxi so better to order a cab from reception and be patient about how long they take to arrive), buffet breakfast is a bit average, the bathroom drains smell really dreadful, the pillows are bizarre (small and rubber-like, hard), no tea making facilities or glasses in the room, food takes a long time to come in the restaurant, no activities were organised, there were no maps of the area or brochures for activities in reception or the room, no instructions in the room for the safe or the TV etc, shower cubicle (and bathroom) is teeny tiny and sprays water all over the toilet and nearby floor.
Overall it was a nice place - if they could do something about the drains (a common issue in Bali) and pillows it would definitely have improved our experience. If you book here don't expect much activity - if you're looking for peace and quiet then it's probably more your style.
