The Peneeda is an aging hotel, however it has kept itself up quite well. It has its hits and misses. Don't go in expecting anything more than a solid 3-star hotel, and you won't be disappointed.
What I liked:
The hotel is right on the beach. Breakfast is tasty and plentiful (and on the beach). We stayed in a 2-room suite, and the room and bathroom were huge, the beds very comfortable, air conditioners quiet. All amenities provided except a hair dryer. The grounds are lovely, the lobby is big and built in the balinese style typical of older hotels (lots of wood), and it has 3 swimming pools. The location is great, you can walk out the hotel and be on the street with loads of shops. Like all along Sanur, there is a lovely walking trail along the coast line.
What I didn't like:
The massive construction project on the lot next door meant the back part of the resort (area away from the beach) had construction noise all day. This noise drifted over the two pool areas at that end, and although not that bad, this may not be for those who prefer total quiet. The beach was not cleaned of garbage...ever (and that's such an easy fix for the hotel). The fitness equipment was a rusting carcass badly in need of repair. Partly open-air shower mean you can see the moon while showering, but also lets the mosquitos in.
If you stay, avoid the Standard Cottages, as they back right onto the construction site. Our suite was away from that, and totally unaffected by the noise.
