i stayed at jimbaran hills resort with my family as a surprise gift from my dad who's a member of a holiday company and with much consideration (from pictures given that seem promising) we decided to book 6 nights in this hotel. we mainly did not think the location on first place cause previously we've never been to jimbaran area before so we decided to give it a try. arrived in bali airport at 8pm and finally took us at least 30mins from airport to reach the resort cause the taxi driver was not familiar with the area. it was remote, absolutely, since there's no life around the area (almost nothing). all i ever found was peaceful quiet yet i could hear crickets and mosquitoes voice. booked for 2 apart rooms and they made us wait for 15-20 mins despite i heard that it is ready for us. phew.
for the room, ok it was nice and decent. clean and comfortable bed although need an upgrade for the mattress, quite hard for me. tools and amenities for the kitchen was not complete, only kettle available and i had to talked twice to the housekeeping for the utensils.
for the facilities, we're staying at the one with big pool (not with the water slide) so i enjoyed it a lot. the pool was clean and quite comfy to swim though i did not use it that often mainly because i'd prefer to sunbath :p for the restaurant, it was okay.
now for the location. since i was new to jimbaran area so it was hard for me to go around by foot. i am not the kind of person who likes to go around by car/taxi so this was the downside of the resort. mind you that i stayed in this resort around 2005 so the area was not that busy and with the hilltop thing, it even made this one a bit creepy (lol). of course if you want a nice, good, comfortable, quiet place then this resort is the one for you though i guarantee even some other ppl will say 'it's too remote'. if you r the one who r looking for the busy Bali life then this one is not the perfect resort for you. thank God for the nice pool and cleanliness otherwise this will just go down and under.
i'll stay again in this place if it is for free - lol.. there's a lot other resorts/hotels in jimbaran area which are much better in location and surroundings.
