This hotel has nice exterior, Balinese style, and lots of green areas. The room is spacious, but the overal interior is dingy. There's a shelf made of ceramics where we can use for luggage and clothes. We can change clothes inside the room as well. Without door, just a curtain. The bathroom is also spacious with bathtub, but unattractive. The staff are friendly.
It might be good for young children as they have a mini zoo. Only I think keeping animals like snake, iguana, crocodile inside the hotel is pretty scary, even they put notice "keep distance". You know how children are! They also have deers, butterflies, peacocks, rabbits, and that's interesting. The good thing is we can enjoy some dolphins attraction although it isn't extraordinary. Children can take photos touching the dolphins, but it costs around IDR 500,000/pax. Isn't it overpriced? We're allowed to swim with the dolphins under the trainer's instruction, but it isn't free either. Not sure how much, but must be more than taking photos.
We tried afternoon tea. The quantity isn't adquate for 5 people, but that's fine. Only we had some boiled cassava and some boiled peanuts. The cassava is nice, but the peanuts are awful, many are watery without nuts in it. However, it's not a big problem as it's not the main purpose. I didn't try the breakfast, and let the other family members have it. They said it's just standard.
The location is great, about 5' walk to the beach. We can hire a boat to go further to see the dolphins. It's better to start a bit early. We were lucky that the dolphins coming out of the sea at that time.
Will I stay here again for my next visit to Bali? Probably no.
