We stayed at the Novotel for 9 nights in May and June. My partner is a member of Accor Advantage, so for us this meant a great discount on our meals (50%) and drinks (15%) which given its reasonably remote location, was a great bonus. We stayed in a Hotel room, which was very pleasant. The resort was perhaps 70% full? Anyway, always plenty of sun beds and umbrellas available. Breakfast buffet was excellent each day; lunchtime was some kind of snack at the bar; and then the dinner buffet or restaurant. We are not great buffet people, but the Indian night was good - the rest, we didnt really notice the theme all that much in terms of the food variety that was offered. We enjoyed the a la carte restaurant much more, and it was actually cheaper if you didnt want a three course meal. Not being a great fish lover, I didnt really enjoy the buffets that much.
The grounds are kept beautifully, and it is a very peaceful and restful place. But we had a couple of issues while there - one was dealt with appropriately, the other; well, the outcome was disappointing. But I guess that happens sometimes.
Trying to get information about tours is also a little challenging, but we did manage to book a day trip to Gili Air which was brilliant. Sparkling crystal blue sea, and white sand and brilliant snorkelling. The snorkelling off Kuta was non existent as there were very few fish.
We did wonder what people do when it rained - the rooms were too small to spend the day in, and other than the small bar area, there was nowhere else to spend a day indoors. We were lucky, we had brilliant weather that only rained at night. The gym is good, as is the (paid) wireless internet.
Overall it was excellent value for money.
