I can see why this place has attracted some fairly poor reviews recently. All is certainly not right. However all is certainly not wrong either and there were enough good bits for us that we enjoyed our 3 night stay. We rather liked our quirky little room. The bed was comfy, the room was quiet enough (although I think this was rather because our neighbours were considerate than because the room had exceptional soundproofing) and the aircon worked very well. There was plenty of comfortable seating in the room which was good for cooling off for a bit as the weather in Sanur was very hot and humid when we stayed and we didn't want to be out in it all the time. We were very happy using the pool and beach areas. All of the Indonesian staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was OK but nothing special. Very miserly looking servings of fruit compared to previous places we had stayed on Bali, the juices tasted peculiar and the coffee was very weak. One morning the table was also not properly wiped clean, cutlery looked smeary and a side plate was chipped. The staff seemed inexperienced so probably needed better management. We had lunch in the restaurant one day. It was fine but expensive for what it was. Drinks there were also expensive so we only had one beer there. It was also fairly evident that some things were in need of a bit of a refurb. We are not really used to staying in places which are this upmarket (pool, beach front restaurant etc.) and we did manage to negotiate a fairly large discount on their published room rates by just arriving without a booking. As such for us it seemed fine. I can imagine if you paid full whack and/or are used to staying in posher place this could well come as a disappointment.
