I have fairly simple expectations when it comes to hotels: give me a good room & facilities, good price, good food, friendly & efficient service ... and I'm happy. This hotel ticks all the boxes.
The rooms are modern, clean, spacious with great facilities. Pool and grounds are beautiful, clean & well-maintained.
The price was great and our package (4-night minimum) included pick-up from the airport (although a Bluebird Taxi return was only 60,000RPH anyway, so no big deal if you miss out on this - just be sure to use a Bluebird taxi where they use a meter!!)
We didn't have lunch or dinner there, but the breakfast buffet was good with asian-style foods, more western-style hot foods (sausages, bacon, eggs etc), pancakes, danishes, croissants & fruit. I would have preferred a little more variety with the cereals and the brewed coffee was terrible, but there's a cafe on site that does nice barista coffees so we got our coffee fix (phew!)
Both our check-in and check-out were in the early hours and handled quickly and efficiently. In fact, all our dealings with the staff were great - they were friendly, courteous & efficient.
The only downside is the location ... everywhere is a taxi ride but with Bluebird Taxis (on the meter), it's 30,000RPH pretty much everywhere so it's very little.
I would probably stay closer to Kuta next time, but that's just personal preference ... if I could pick up the Fontana and move it to Kuta so I could stay there again, I would.
Definitely one I'd recommend.
