We stayed here 4 nights due to the cheap rates for 2 adults and 2 kids after staying in an expensive high end resort in Nusa Dua.
Hotel was quiet so our service was good but i can imagine as other reviewers have said this could unravel if they were busy.
The staff are lovely.
Food at dinner was a big letdown.
Breakfast was not buffet and was restricted and basic motel fare.
Wifi was not existent outside main lobby - don't believe any other information.
We still enjoyed our stay as we accepted these negatives as reflected in hotel price.
I have stayed in 30 + 5 star resorts and this could not officially be rated as such. It would never get 4 or 5 stars in a legitimate appraisal.
I don't like to bad talk the place too much and we enjoy all our stays while on vacation and enjoy different experiences but don't like misinformation.
This hotel is a love or hate type property that given its big size and dating facilities is a maintenance headache for the owners - it would cost far too much to renovate properly . Some of the neglected pools (many on large property away from main activities) looked very dirty.
We would only recommend this place to people if it was made clear that it is not a 4 or 5 star resort. The grounds are very tacky or 'charming' hence the name 'Bollywood'
Main building is impressive though.
All in all if you expect to get what you pay for then you can overlook some of these shortcomings.
My wife slipped over and hurt her ankle on the slippery paths. To be fair all of Ubud is slippery.
I would not advise people to stay here but wouldn't tell them not to either.
The kids loved it. 6 & 8.
I hope this information helps you make your decision.
