This is the 4th time we have stayed at this hotel in the past 8 years, and we would thoroughly recommend it to families looking for a good value holiday in Bali.
We have 4 children and have always struggled to find hotels that can accomodate large families. We either have to get 2 or more rooms (which becomes quite expensive) or rent a house or villa - and then miss out on all the facilities that you get in a hotel. The Paradise Plaza Suites provides the best of both worlds.
The hotel is located a few blocks back from the beach. You can walk to the main shopping/restaurant area of Sanur in about 5 minutes, and to the beach in about 10-15 minutes. The hotel has an area assigned at the beach with deck chairs and towels. There is a shuttle bus that runs between the hotel and the beach throughout the day.
On our last visit 3 years ago we felt the hotel was in need of some modernisation. We were pleased to see on this visit that they have commenced renovations. Since our last visit they have refurbished the lobby/reception area, the restaurant which now includes a poolside bar, and were in the process of renovating the kids club. They have also started renovating the rooms - we stayed in a recently renovated 3 bedroom apartment with loft. The kitchen was new and the bathrooms have been retiled. This apartment is extremely spacious. There are 3 very generous bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. The master bedroom upstairs is very large and having it seperate from the children's rooms is great. There is a large lounge area and a self contained kitchen and dining area.
There is a large main pool as well as a children's pool at the back of the hotel that has a water slide. The water slide is a real hit with children up to the age of about 10. There is a kids club that has air hockey, table tennis, billiard table + video games and other activities for younger children.
The food in the hotel is reasonably priced, which means that you can order room service or poolside service for the whole family without worrying about breaking the bank. As an example, club sandwiches, burgers, fish & chips, pizza and pasta are all about US$7.00 per dish. Larger meals such as steaks etc are US$9.00 - $15.00 per dish. Soft drinks are about US$2 each, beers about US$4 each and cocktails are about US$7.00 - $10.00 each.
The Paradise Plaza Hotel (owned by the same company) is located about 3km away. It is more appropriate for couples without children, but if you stay at the Plaza Suites you can use the facilities at the Hotel as well. There is a shuttle bus that runs between the two hotels. Every few days we would have breakfast at the other hotel for a change of scenery and then use the pool there, which is really nice, but very different to the Plaza Suites. The gym at the Plaza Suites is a little basic, but apparently the one at the Hotel is very good (although I did not use it).
One of the great things about the hotel is the staff. They are extremely friendly and helpful - nothing is too much trouble. We hadn't visited the hotel for 3 years, but still many of the staff remembered us and the children.
I would rate this as a 4-star hotel. While it does not have the glitz of a 5-star hotel, it is great value for money, very relaxing and the kids will love it.
All in all I would definitely recommend this hotel for families.
