I stayed at Alam Jiwa with my wife and son (3yrs old) and with friends and their two kids (2 and 11months) for 10 days. This was my first time here but my 10th ish time in Bali. The place was perfect for us.
We rented one unit and our friends rented the upstairs unit. In the evenings we would congregate on the balcony for drink and look out over the small gorge to the rice fields beyond. The breakfasts in the morning were great (again on the balcony or in a small seating area near the pool) and consited of fresh fruit, omelletes, jaffles, coffee, or balinese porrige.
Going into town is very easy - a short stroll through the village (much nicer than Ubud proper, through (or around) Monkey Forest and there you are in the thick of it. 10mins. Sometimes we would use the free shuttle that the hotel prvided if we were going out to dinner.
Although we travelled with small kids I think it would also be a perfect place for couples since all the accomodation is situated in seperate houses (see photos and google earth).
Finally the staff were fantastic, naturally warm as most Balinese are.
The place is beautiful, the staff are great and it has soul which some of the other - beautifully and slickly crafted - resorts lack.
