Okay so this place wasn't awful, but I just can't think of anything positive to say. Bali Spirit had quite good Tripadvisor reviews so we thought we'd try there for a change (as we've been to Ubud quite a few times). Tripadvisor doesn't often get it wrong, but on this occasion it did.
In summary then... the rooms are basic, Balinese in style and tired looking. Everything needs a bit of an update. The smell was just musty and damp. There was a huge hair ball in the plug hole in the bath...
The breakfasts were OK, nothing to really note here. Just OK, not terrible but nothing to write home about.
The grounds are lovely with pretty gardens but there are a lot of steps, this was fine for us but may be a problem for some people.
The pool area was tired looking and not somewhere I enjoyed relaxing... there is a phone to dial for pool towels, when we called it no one answered...
The staff are hit and miss, some were very friendly / helpful and others weren't.
You can walk into town from this place (20-30 mins depending which way you go) They also offer a free shuttle bus although the one time we tried to catch it it was full.
