“Good hotel but not so good beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2012

Stayed in this Hotel for 3nights, and made the mistake of chosing a pool view room. The hotel was mostly full with screaming australians and their children and the continuous yelling on the mike by the co-ordinater at the swimming pool made the room unbearable to be in between 10 am - 5pm. Otherwise the standard room though a bit small was comfirtable and the breakfast was excellent. The beach was average and more a rough stony beach, not with smooth soft sand. My wife went for an aromatic massage and loved it. It was also quite reasonable. Staff at reception were friendly. I also stayed at the Santika Beach Resort for 3nights, and found that to be of better quality, nicer rooms, and a lot more quieter... Its bang on the Main road, and once at the gate and you turn right, youre within walking distance to all the food centres, shopping and a huge mall. If youre looking for a good beach, Id suggest you stay in the Sannur or Nusa dua area...

Thank you for sharing your experience with everyone following your visit to the Bali Dynasty Resort. Indeed perhaps the pool view room is not the best choice for those wanting peace and quiet and as it is nearing the school holiday period the Bali Dynasty Resort is reaching maximum capacity. I am pleased that your wife enjoyed her treatment in our new Spa and sorry about your disappointment with the beach.

We just returned to Melbourne after spending 10 nights at the Dynasty. It was recommended to us by friends and they were spot on in their assessment of the Dynasty as a terrfic place to relax and have fun. Staff are brilliant, rooms clean, service excellent and the food and drinking options are quality. Our two kids, 6 and 4, had a ball with the other kids. Definitely a place for families. They also enjoyed the kids club. It is well situated and within walking distance to most attractions in Kuta-Legian. We will return for sure and have already penciled in a time next year.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience at the Bali Dynasty Resort here on Tripadvisor. I was pleased to hear that both you and the kids had a "ball" and enjoyed your stay with us and we hope it will not be too long before you will return again! It's just gets better every time! We will soon be opening a circus trapeze for kids and adults to learn the art of trapeze!

A week was not enough at the Dynasty. Whether you like to shop, surf, relax or swim, the Dynasty has it all within the grounds or very close by. Instead of getting in and out of cheap taxis to get anywhere, we were able to walk to all the things we wanted to do.
Whilst you may pay a little more for hotels in South Kuta, the initial investment is well worth it. Adults and kids can be kept well occupied.

Kids Club: great
Room: fantastic and quiet
Grounds: Nice and relaxing.
Pools: Brilliant
Food: Exceptional
Service: Friendly and faultless
WiFi: Ahhh the only negative.

Every Hotel has at least one negative. WIFI should be included in the price.... but as I objected to paying for a service that is free at every other hotel I've ever stayed at I sought for a positive in this. I kept my laptop in its cover and got on to doing what everyone should do on holidays... relaxing with the family and forgetting about work.
Some people have complained about the price of food at the hotel. The food was beautifully presented, tasty and very reasonably priced. You could go to the nearby restaurants and pay $1 a dish less and get great food, but why would you when there was so much on offer at the hotel. I was happy to pay slightly more for food that was prepared in an immaculately clean kitchen.

Yes there were lots of kids and yes some families did stay around the pool bar all day. Everyone was well behaved and everyone I spoke to was having a great time. The Dynasty has got "making everyone enjoy their stay" down to a fine art.

So Dads pack your surfboard and get the family booked in to the Dynasty for your next holiday.
P.S. Leave the laptop at home.

Room Tip: Studio room at the front of the hotel was quiet and spacious.

Thanks for taking the time to share your great review on Tripadvisor and who would ever have thought the solution to the Wifi problem as not using it and having a real family holiday instead! A great idea. We're all too tied up with are electronics and gadgets to appreciate what the real life is all about. Glad to see you had a great time with us and felt that we offered good value for money. I hope we will have the opportunity of welcoming you back again in the not too distant future for a real holiday! (oh don't forget the surfboard and leave the laptop! :)

We have just returned home from a 10 night stay at the Bali Dynasty. Everything was perfect, the staff were so helpful, friendly and professional, we could not fault the service. We stayed in an executive suite with 2 adults and 2 kids, the room was excellent, so clean, exceptional housekeeping service [I am quite fussy and own and operate a motel in Australia.] I have read a few negative reviews about the resort, IGNORE THEM. The resort is busy, yes and so is Kuta, but if you don't like that sort of holiday STAY AT HOME, or go elsewhere. The Dynasty is known as a family friendly resort, so of course there will be a lot of kids staying. I really did not find too many kids out of control, and the life guards around the pool keep them in check by blowing a whistle if they step out of line. This was our best family holiday ever and we will return again soon.

Room Tip: Executive suites for 2 Adults and 2 children excellent, very roomy with great balcony

This hotel is in a good location right in the heart of Kuta, and a walking distance to the shops in Kuta and Discovery Mall.

The rooms were clean and spacious, large pool. Breakfast was ok.

The only thing I didn't like about this hotel was that there were too many kids - so if you are looking for a "quiet" getaway..I will not recommend this hotel, especially if you go during "peak season". When I went, there were many Australians.

If you are not going to stay much in the hotel, and want to be in walking distance to the amenities in Kuta, I would recommend this hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Indeed the hotel is busy during the school holidays with kids since the Kids Water Fun Zone is very popular. We do however have an exclusive area up near the Spa where it is for adults only around the lazy pool. Thanks for pointing out the great location and I hope you will return again in a more off peak time!

We have 2 children aged 8 and 6yrs and we stayed with a large group whose children were all about the same age. We absolutely loved the Dynasty. The kids were keep amused with the kids club, waterslides and a hive of activity by the pool. Some days it would be 3pm before I would realise the kids hadn't come and annoyed me for lunch! The parents were more than happy to lounge by the pool and watch the kids play, joining them for a dip inbetween happy hour!! Food and service was fab. My hubby turned 40 on our stay and the resort sent him flowers, a cake and the room service team made a 3 tiered cake from towels and put a large '40' made out of rose petals on our bed! Talk about spoilt!! Spa was being renovated so cant wait to see this finished and a trapeze was being erected to be ready in a month. I am booking my next trip alreday!
Thank you to the wonderful staff and see you when we return :)

Next time you visit they can try our Trapeze which should open in the next week or so and our new Ashoka Spa has just opened - so that will be another place for you to relax on your next visit!
