We had never been to Bali before so on the recommendation of a friend who lives in Indonesia, booked and stayed at the hotel for 10 nights- 26 june till 6 July.
The draw card being the kids club and kids pool . Had a 10yr old in tow. Also far enough away from the hustle and bustle of central Kuta. From the time we arrived the staff were friendly and helpful. there is security on the entrances to the hotel.
We had a family room (166) which contains 1 king bed' which I found comfortable and a double bunk behind a separating wall to the main bedroom. Room clean although the make up seemed to be scheduled later in the afternoon usually between 2-3pm each day so if he wanted a break during the afternoon the room was not made up.
We had the buffet breakfast in the restaurant "H2O" each morning. It was the usual standard was a rotating menu of the 10 day stay. Over a week they have "theme nights" with buffet once again good but it is not something you would rave about.
Each day the pool area was a family environment so if you want somewhere that is kid free I recommend you do not go here during peak times.
kids pool contains a water slide and safety ensured with a staff member monitoring the kids using the ride when open. The kids club have two movie nights thursday and saturday from 6pm to 9pm which is a great idea as it give the parents an opportunity to duck out and have dinner while they are being entertained and fed in the kids club. Make sure you book early as it fills up pretty quickly as you would expect..... The staff of the kids club were great breaking down that initial hesitation that kids sometimes have with meeting new friends by introducing each to same aged kids. As usual that pretty well meant they were friends for the duration of their stay.
Mandatory hair braiding: don't bother getting it done on the street the ladies from the hotel do a lot better job at the same price. my daughter obviously had to get it re -done. The street started to fall
out after two days we had it re-done by hotel staff, located next to where you get towels for the pool and stayed in until well after we got home.
All the staff are friendly and accommodating and when asked will tend to your request.
Pool area: Two happy hours in the main pool 12-1pm and 5-6pm. Food served around the pool had a kids menu and adults sandwiches, salad bowls of chips, pizza and the like. Free wifi is available around the pool where emails etc could be checked.this was also available in the main lobby.
Overall a great family holiday destination.
