Bali Lovina Beach Cottages
Ranked #20 of 25 Hotels in Lovina Beach
Reviewed 31 May 2012

Don't stay here. There were bedbugs, we switched rooms, and there were still bedbugs. Although the staff are friendly and the location and pool are nice, this still wasn't good value for money. The restaurant was very overpriced (the food poor - we had sand in our fried rice...). The rooms are old, and faded - and well, bedbugs...

I stayed at the Bali Lovina Beach Cottages in April 2012.Prior to arriving I had been very excited at my stay here Staff on duty when first arriving at the hotel were just a little too friendly and maybe just a little shifty?. One in particular became visibly annoyed that I had organised my own trip out on one of the boats and chose to stay at the hotel for the night rather than go out to a club. Bit of an issue with money as well..made a call at reception to Ubud..cost was 10,000 rp...paid 10,000 rp..then.paid 15,000rp for internet access...didn't work at all. Was then offered wifi access for 50,000 rp and was told the 15,000 I had already paid for the internet would be deducted leaving 35,000 owing. Handed over another 50,000 rp note and received nothing in return. In the meantime the cook bought out 2 slices of toast and a cup of Bali coffee..charging me 31,000 rp. A 50,000 note was handed over, change came back and then 2000 rp was taken off me for the 1,000 rp apparently owed to the other staff member???? The amounts really were paltry and I wasn't going to debate the issue, especially with the pushy cook. It did however.. confirm my belief that it wasn't a nice hotel to be staying in.
The room itself did not have the inclusions it stated on the websites it was advertising vacancies on. The phone was stored in a drawer..I found it when looking for a pen. No in-room safe as advertised. The airconditioner was set on freezing :( The window in my room mysteriously opened at some point in the evening. Twas a little creepy..
I don't know the Lovina area well and so waited to the next morning to check out to a beautiful hotel down the road. The half day rate I paid was worth every cent and the staff were wonderful :)

Location by the beach so nothing to complain about. Pool water doesn't look very clear but we still can enjoy. The breakfast is standard, so it's okay. The room is old and run down though, fortunately quite clean. Aircon works well, hot shower is good, so we are fine with it. The problem is, at night there are quite a lot of mosquitos or maybe other bugs, left us can't sleep well even though we put on repellent lotion and pluck the electric mosquitos repellent. Also there are no free toilettries so brig your own. The dolphin tour worth going, from the hotel IDR 70,000 per person but at the beach by the fisherman they offer IDR 50,000 - 60,000. Be careful of the tout in motorbike though, he asked for a ridiculous IDR 120,000

We paid about 300K rupiah per night for a room in one of the bungalows. The bathroom is a bit outdated but clean. The rest is ok. Bed was comfortable, A/C worked ok, the rooms have a fridge.
The pool is big and you can see the ocean from it.
It's no special hotel, a bit outdated, but what can you expect for this price?
Location is good, walking distance to the main street with bars and restaurants.

Lovina is a good base for a trip to Menjangan Island, great snorkeling and diving.

Where do I start!!! Firstly the two cottages were well over priced not to mention they were dirty, the linen looked like it hadn't been changed and it was very itchy the first night we slept in the beds. Breakfast was supposedly included in the price, but then we discover that there are two menus, one that is included where you get the choice of a real basic menu of an egg cooked three different ways or balinese breakfast, rice or noodles, tea or coffee and an OJ which is really just orange cordial. On the reverse side of the "included menu" is a selection of what "we" would call a decent breakfast, but all have prices and are also over priced for what you get!! After the first night we wanted out, but were locked in to our booking of two nights so decided to remain much to our discuss.....Holiday maker beware!!! Try another hotel, looks can be deceiving, internet photo's etc.......

Room Tip: Run as fast as you can...............away!!!!
