I was pleasantly surprised by the Harris Bukit Jimbaran. I would not have stayed here or in the area other than I could not get a room where I wanted and this was an inexpensive alternative.
The room was great, quite large, well appointed and very comfortable, the bed was excellent. My room did not have a window i could open or a balcony like most of them, but it wasnt an issue for me. I thought it would be noisy being on the road and at the front, but the area is quiet and I didnt hear anything until after 7am.
Downside would be the food. The hotel clearly has a very large Chinese tourist group clientel and they cater very much for them. Breakfast was fairly ordinary, although the coffee (self serve) was good as you would expect in Bali. As I had work to do I ordered room service for dinner, club sandwich. Definitely one of the more ordinary club sandwiches and not good value for the $10 it cost. If I had time I would have gone out. There is a little irish pub across the road and a Thai fusion place next door. For anything else yuo need a cab.
It has an exceptionally good roof top bar and a great pool in the middle of the two blocks of rooms. Looks like it would be great for family groups or groups of friends who want to hit the beach all day (shuttles available) or explore Bali on their own and come back for evening drinks and dinner. Not much night life close to here, it all needs a taxi.
I dont know that I would stay here again as its not a part of Bali that I would normally stay, but if I had to, then I would not be too worried about it.
