My ratings take into consideration that this is Indonesia. For Indonesia, this hotel and it's food were great! Loved the buffet meals as we could pick what we wanted. The rooms were large, comfortable and clean, well after I had them come and clean the toilet when we moved in. The bathrooms are very large. We were there for four nights with a group of 8 snorkelers. The staff was very attentive to our needs.
Now for the challenges:
The dive operation lunch food was terrible. We stayed in 22 and had a pet frog in our toilet show up every night. He was both amusing and a problem. The first two nights he left right away when we flushed. After that, it took considerable effort to get him to go. We sprayed him with the toilet wash hose and he finally left. When I get a chance to get through our photos, I will post his photo. I hope the hotel reads this as we forgot to tell them about our pet and they need to evict him. There is a call to prayer five times a day so expect that. One more thing ... be sure to use the provided room safes ... my hard side locked suitcase was pried open the second day we were out on the boats ... there was nothing of any value for them to take and I do not think anything was missing.
