I just returned from a stay at Febri's and was happy with our time there. It's a good option for a cheap getaway which was perfect as we were travelling with friends. If I was going just with my partner I would choose a more up scale resort in Sanur or Seminyak but this was a good fit for our beach and beers week.
Rooms are big and clean and well equipped with flat screen tv and large refridgerator - perfect for all the bottled water and drinks you'll want to have on hand! Cleaners come through every morning and do a nice job although I noticed they didn't replace the glasses when they were used for teeth brushing etc. Balconies are good size. We were on the top floor and yes the stairs are epic as some reviewers have mentioned but in the end they are just stairs and I didn't mind the excuse to do some exercise each day. Our friends had a room on the bottom floor which was also pleasant as it was adjacent to the nice gardens.
Service is ok, but a bit on the slow side. Breakfast is fine, good scrambled eggs to rely on and the selection varied a bit each day. The only problem here was no decent coffee, even filtered coffee - it was from a machine. We ate lunch in the hotel restaurant most days and the food is quite ok (particularly the pizza) but getting orders taken, getting food delivered and then getting a bill to sign was a considerably lengthy process. Not too much to worry about though because you would mainly only eat one or two meals at the hotel a day, with so many great dining options around Kuta, Legian, Sanur etc. Staff were kind and obliging and always friendly when you pass them, and eager to help with late checkouts, transfers etc.
As mentioned earlier the location was great for a friends getaway as it's close to Kuta, Waterbom Park, Discovery Mall and lots of bars and shopping. Getting out to go to dinner in areas like Sanur or Jimbaran is easy enough, but traffic gets manic around 5:30-8pm so it takes longer than expected. For a romantic getaway, I would recommend staying in a resort in one of the quieter areas.
Value is good for what you're paying for, we didn't expect a 4-5 star experience so we weren't disappointed. The atmosphere is nice, a great pool that is really refreshing and not too crowded and surrounded by lovely frangipani trees. Plenty of shade and garden around so it's not too desolate. We were told that we could receive a complimentary one hour foot massage within a day of checking in and I was a bit skeptical as I'm not usually one for massages, particular foot massages, but we had it the next day and it was really incredible. We were taken into a proper spa room and it was really relaxing, and we all ended up booking further massages as the spa ended up being much better than expected.
All in all it was a good stay and I would recommend this to someone looking for a budget holiday.
