We stayed in a deluxe for 4 nights and we were very satisfied.
Pros: Very convenient with 2 free bottled water provided in room each day (free unlimited bottled water available in dining room all day), free umbrellas to borrow, room was serviced/cleaned everyday. We quite enjoyed the free breakfast, lots to choose from.. The lady that serves breakfast was lovely. Bed was very comfy. Room had minifridge and aircon, desk, two sinks, and shelves to put clothes. We were quite satisfied with the cleanliness/condition of our room. Safety deposit box at reception. Reception open 24 hrs (I think). We felt very safe at the hotel. Location was great, less than 10 minute walk to the beach and 5-10 minute walk to tons of great restaurants. Definitely try Warung Little Bird if you have the chance. 15 minute walk to Hardy's (local fixed price supermarket). Spa was amazing and you get a discount if you stay at the hotel. 1 hr massage = 80,000RP.
Cons: Staff very friendly/polite and always smiling although a few of them were hassling us trying to get us to use their friends as drivers. Got ripped off by one of the drivers on our first day because we didn't know any better. No maps at reception. I asked them to call us a Bluebird taxi and they said they couldn't call Bluebird (I even gave them their phone number) but could call another taxi company. No mosquito nets. We often saw mosquitoes but didnt need them because we brought mosquito coils with us and would burn one every night on our balcony and would wear bugspray to bed every night and this kept us from being bitten. TV in room was very blurry. Bathrooms had these scented balls on the floor which I think are meant to absorb bad smells. At first we liked them but after a few days the smell of them got nauseating and all of my clothes stunk like those balls. Keep bathroom door closed. Manicure at the spa was a waste of money (nail polish never dried) but massages were great!!!!
All in all - great value for price. Would stay here again. Obviously don't stay here if you're expecting a 5-star resort. But if you're looking for a decent place on a budget in a great location then this is it! We weren't expecting much (based on the price) but we were pleasantly surprised. For us, the pros outweighed the cons, and we would definitely stay here again.
