Bali Sandy Cottages
Ranked #216 of 254 Hotels in Kuta
Reviewed 10 November 2013

We had to wait 6 hrs after our check in time to actually get in to our room. Staff put us off three times with excuses. First off we were ok and went down to the bar to relax only to be informed there was no alcohol available. We went off to get a massage and had a swim at the beach returning at 6pm feeling sure everything would be ready and STILL no room. We were oily and sandy and just feeling like we wanted a really good shower after a day of travel. We asked for a free meal in the end and took our own duty free to drink as still nothing available. Breakfast was AWFUL. I don't eat egg and that was all that was on offer with toast, no bacon or sausage or cereal. Yeuck. Rooms were hardly cleaned and our dirty towels were never replaced. Toilet paper not replaced, shower was cold WHEN it actually worked. Agreed that u get what you pay for but seriously in this day and age and Bali a lot more switched on to tourism this was NOT a pleasant experience.. Felt a bit grotty and wish we had paid a little extra and gone somewhere cleaner. Walls were mouldy and everything musty and old. If you REALLY can not afford anything else then at least Sandy resort has a pool but we rate this place 2 stars. Will not be returning nor promoting to anyone else.

Room Tip: All horrible

We arrived at the Hotel Late at Night. Were dissapointed at the State of the Hotel. Dirty sheets, bathroom, poor State of repair of the room. Basic breakfast the next Day. We cancelled our 8 Day booking and went to another Hotel. You Pay for what you get, but thought the reviews were ok, Wrong! A plus for the Hotel: the Manager understood our choice and did refund the Balance paid. Hotel about Backpacker standard.

This was a great place to stay, close to beach and markets. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was cleaned daily and good value for money. Breakfast daily was buffet style and wonderful. This is a great value resort with good amenities. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room overlooking the restaurant and pool and was great.

If you want cheap it's good. But don't pay for deluxe room there the same as the superior and the standard room. The pool bar only had bintang or bali moon cocktails. So bintang, the masseurs where good and the people.

If you want a central location where you can walk everywhere and are on a budget this is the hotel for you. Rooms are clean and spacious, pool and pool bar are awesome and breakfast was simple and tasty. Staff are very hospitable. Bonus was the cheap laundrette next door. Great holiday with friends.

Stayed at Bali sandy for a week in August, we had a bit of truble the first night as the hotel was full but they quickly transfured us to a sister hotel around the corner for the night. We were picked up the next day to find we had been upgraded to a massive family room. Rooms are basic but that's all we need as who goes to Bali to sit in the hotel room anyway, they do have a great pool area tho.
Will defiantly stay at Bali Sandy again, the only down side I could find was there was no safe in the room.
