“Nice location, average rooms and value.”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

We ended our roundtrip to Bali here with a 2 night stay. It was the most expensive hotel we had during our stay. The room was nice but was not matching expectations in regards to the price. The value of the hotel is mainly based upon the location as it is located right on the beachfront. The garden and swimming pool were nice and well maintained. We did not have enough interaction with the staff to really comment on this but overall they were friendly. Breakfast was good but choise was rather limited (again based upon the price I would have expected more options). The room was nice and tastefull with all you need in it (international tv channels, safe, airco, etc) but we had a small ant investation in it as well which we did not need. The bathroom was also nice and clean but here the drains sometimes had issues getting rid of the water in the shower and sink. Overall a nice place to stay with an ok value for your money if you want to be close to the beach.

We decided to spend a day by a pool next to the ocean. La Taverna is situated on the beach with a pool. The cost for the day including a beach towel was 150k rupiah this included drinks and food to our choice for the same amount. The service was excellent and the food satified all of us. A place to visit if you have had enough of the beach.

It was our last hotel in Indonesia, Bali, and we had especially asked for a nice lovely family suite, in a magnificient area. What we got was to start a very cold unfriendly welcome at the reception and then the worst room we had of our holiday in Indonesia (21 days). Once a week they put a very toxic product and we just got in on this day. Avoid room 8, no garden view, and this smell, so toxic that I started to faint and feel very sick. So we asked an another room. They gave us after a huge complaint from our side room 1 near the kitchen.... so with a child, forget about sleeping early and long in the morning due to all the kitchen noise and smell. Let's say we won't come back for sure. The only positive thing of this hotel was the staff in the restaurant, so sweet and kind.

Room Tip: avoid rooms 8 and 1

We recently returned to la taverna after first visiting it more than 30 years ago. Not a lot had changed! It has a fabulous position on the beach and it was lovely to have breakfast right on the beach if you wished. The breakfast was good but when I asked for banana pancake instead of eggs was told it would be extra! The rooms were dark and the bathroom in need of an overhaul and new towels to replace the grey and frayed ones we hd. I think management needs to go to the Tandjung Sari to see how a first class hotel is run. There is no comparison. It's sad but we will not be returning to our old favourite. The pluses are its position, the staff are delightful and its quirkiness - the minuses are the lack of good management. The only dinner we had in the restaurant was not good.

I loved this hotel. I went with 3 friends and the interconnecting rooms each with it's own bathroom provided the ideal accommodation at a reasonable price and I felt the standard was very high. I loved the décor and the wet room. The pool and bar facilities are second to none and the staff were friendly.

What could they improve:
- security at the point where the hotel meets the beach to stop tourists getting harassed by hawkers. This however is hardly the hotel's fault but something to be weary of.

I would stay here again and recommend it very highly to anyone looking to stay in Sanur.

Stayed here for 4 nights travelling as 2 families. Disappointing and tired accommodation which could do with a long overdue overhaul. I understand that for some travellers the 'rustic' may be appealing, but the bathroom felt dirty, hair on the bed sheets when we arrived and we kept the blinds closed so we didn't have to look at the falling down building which was our 'view'. Breakfast was a bit restricted unless you wanted to pay extra, although the lunch's we had on a couple of occasions were fine. It's a shame as it has a lovely location right on the beach and a very short walk from bars, shops and restaurants. Unlike some holiday makers i enjoyed the little chats with the massage ladies on the beach and finding out more about the lovely people and culture of Bali. Wouldn't be in a hurry to book La Taverna again on our next trip.

Have stayed at much better hotels and paid less , some of the so called Bali furniture was that old you was scared to touch incase it collapsed , same breakfast every day , thankfully had only booked four nights on the third day we had breakfast out , we had a room with a sleep out for the kids , the door was two planks wood with a wooden steak to lock it , ants in there beds , the grounds where tired , the reception said it all old unwelcoming , beach beds where tired and if you wanted a massage forget it you weren't allowed , the plus was the location and the showers and bed , this hotel is no more than three star and should charge accordingly .
