Our first impression as we drove up the long driveway to the hotel is that of a poorly maintained hotel. Granted the hotel was a little dated but that is no excuse for it to be spoiled by potholes in the driveway and badly chipped stonework lining it. When we checked into our Superior room, the air conditioner was broken and rattled loudly. On the positive side though, was that we were immediately upgraded to a villa as replacement. Even the villas were showing signs of aging, with power points that were not working and small 21" CRT curved screen TVs which really belong to a bygone era. Breakfast was definitely a notch or two down from what we have become accustomed to in other Balinese hotels of similar rating and price range.
Tip: The hotel charges about twice the normal going rate for dolphin watching, citing guaranteed safety. You will most probably still get out to sea on a jukung (narrow outboard motor powered outrigger fishing boat). For a cheaper quote, just take a walk down the beach and negotiate with the boatmen directly.More
