Lovely small hotel in a peaceful setting with friendly and attentive staff. This is the place if you want to feel more like 'part of the family' and less like 'a number'. The rooms are very comfortable and Mangosteen has a very nice outdoor shower room and toilet ... and a resident frog somewhere in the roof. Be prepared for some wildlife interaction (monkey on the balcony, lizards in the room, roosters in adjoining properties).
We were a little worried about the walk to Ubud through the Monkey Forrest, but it was no problem. If you keep your belongings in a shoulder bag or backpack and don't interact with the monkeys they don't bother you. The number of staff in the park has increased and they keep the monkeys in check - shame that they can't do the same with tourists :).More
