We stayed at this hotel using an Expedia deal, which included flights from Perth. The total price was extraordinarily low, but the value we received once at the hotel was amazing. We originally had a lead-in room in the package, but it was quite small for a ten day stay, so we decided to ask the Manager for an upgrade to a the suite. This was done efficiently and was also extremely good value.
The suite egg bath, shower area, bed and lounge are all fantastic, and those extras definitely contributed to us having a more relaxing holiday. We would recommend that the bathroom towels be upgraded, as several were looking a little threadbare and grey.
During our stay we found all the staff extremely friendly, to the point where everyone, from the front desk, to maintenance, to housekeeping always greeted us with a smile. We loved the pool area and found it to be very clean. More working sun beds would be a good idea though.
The hourly shuttle into Legian (9am - 9pm) dropped us very close to Melasti Rd (and Garlic Lane) for shopping and restaurants. A taxi back was only $3 and easy to find, so not an inconvenience at all. There is a Circle K convenience store across the road from the Fontana, and we went there for supplies like extra soft drinks, snacks and toiletries (the minibar does provide 2 x bottled water, 1 x Pepsi, 1 x 7-Up, and orange and an apple juice popper, 1 x kitkat and some peanuts each day).
The hotel restaurant and coffee shop are excellent and well priced. We enjoyed the Friday night grill, and also the half price pastries after 9 pm two days a week. We found breakfast to be fine and appreciated the egg station and freshly made pancakes.
The wifi in the hotel is excellent and can be accessed from the pool and restaurant also. We had no problems connecting several devices at once.
A special mention to Eko the manager and Yoppi at the Front Desk/Concierge for your assistance and can-do attitude throughout our stay. We loved it and we'll see you next time!
