Lovina Beach Hotel
Ranked #14 of 25 Hotels in Lovina Beach
Reviewed 14 July 2014

The hotel is a little misleading as to the difference between their rooms. The standard room has no TV, fridge, safe or plug sockets (except in the bathroom). The rooms are clean, the bathrooms are very basic but fine.

The beach is right In front of the hotel which is great, however it is filled with people trying to sell trips and sarongs etc which gets a little frustrating. The pool at the hotel offers sanctuary, however. It is a little run down but very relaxing and pleasant.

The breakfast and restaurant is terrible. The waitor even tried to sell us tours over breakfast more than once which ruins the sense of tranquility! The only redeeming feature is the cheap beer.

We booked the dolphin hunt through the hotel and had a magical time. We got to see loads of dolphins so much so that we coined our captain, "the dolphin whisperer".

Overall, this hotel offers peace and quiet but the cheap rooms are not worth their rate. If the room was 300,000 rupiah or less my review world have a higher rating.

the location was good but the restaurant staff was dishonest ,actually those dish we ate only 227000idr but they charge us 360000idr ,at the 1st time we didn't want to get the receipt ,but we want to record the prices so we decide to get the receipt back and then we notice that they change the total amount,and actually it is no daily with the prices stated above ,so we ask them to give us back the balance.And they did give us back the balance and apologize to us.so i think all customer have to check the bill before made the payment.

Dear reah1222. Thank you for your time writing the review.
I am happy to know you liked the location of the Lovina Beach Hotel. About the payment issues in the restaurant, according to the rules were done properly with a receipt. Human error may happen, our staff apologized. But your presumption about my dishonest staff needs to be proven, instead of accusing in your review. Thank you and hope you will come and stay with us again.
Your sincerely, Agung37

The area around Lovina is much less visited than the southern coast. Therefore there is little choice in terms of upmarket hotels. So if you lower your expectations, this hotel provides a good base for a couple of days. It is not luxurious by any account. Our room - a suite was basic. The towels and products are poor quality and bugs fly into the open bathroom window. The room was spacious with 2 televisions. Everywhere feels quite run down. The main pool is large but the beach is disappointing. Do go out for your meals. The food is not good - buffet was luke warm with poor choice. The breakfast area is too hot and food is not kept chilled. It is reasonably price so it depends whether just adequate is enough?

Room Tip: The rooms around the pool have limited privacy

Thank you for writing a review. But there is a discrepancy, that every room only one television, never two televisions. No bathroom with open window. Breakfast and meals are provided in the restaurant close to the beach which is always cool windy, not a hot room. The rooms / verandas are privacy, not facing the swimming pool. Hopefully this respond has any use. Thank you.

We stayed here for 6 nights. Very friendly hotel located on the beach and near to everything. The hotel is very old and run down, but it still has a lot of caracter. The bathrooms have seen better days, but the rest is OK. The garden and the poolside is great. We just loved the staff. They made you feel like royalties. Lots of good food and bars near by. Beatiful beach club next to the hotel.
Totally relaxed feel and we will highly recommend it. Good value for money.

Dear Kirsten K.
Thank you for taking the time to write the friendly review. Firstly, I am glad you enjoyed staying with us. Lovina Beach Hotel is historic, first hotel built in 1953, run by the same family for 2 generations. We are now making repairs, but maintain its original character. If you feel like royalties, I hope you like it, probably it could be the affect. More ornaments and other things you will see in the hotel in near future. I am looking forward to your next visit.

Hello, Petta.Thank you for your cool review. Yes, the hotel situation is secluded, like beyond somewhere. Many liked it so. But, the shopping center and ATM are within minutes walking. And I am happy you joined the dolphin watching tour that so popular among visitors.
There are many attractions around Lovina. See the hot springs and the native villages. I am looking forward to your next visit.

This was our 2nd visit to the hotel, and this hotel ticks all our boxes, it is clean, air conditioned, has a fridge, staff are friendly, meals are great and has hot water (well sometimes) but who needs it all the time in that heat.
Am happy to recommend this hotel and have family planning on staying there next month.

Dear Fiona,
Thank you very much for your repeated visit. I really appreciate your willingness to recommend our hotel. I suggest you make a reservation in advance so that we can provide the room/s to your liking. The hot water is our service, use it when you need. Who knows, because the weather changes a time there is a little snow fall in Lovina, which make it cooler.. Don't forget to visit us again. Thank you.
