“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

The lake is magnificent! Thanks to the few tourists, the atmosphere here is peaceful, quite, calm and you'd feel the harmony here.
Drive down to the lakeside, avoid the shops and annoying sellers, just enjoy the moment here. There are some small hotels around, I guess it could be a good idea to spend a night here.

Thank Elena_Huang

“Brilliant view just don't eat anywhere please”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

The view when arrive at the rim on the road can be fantastic real 5 star unless the fog had descended then it's a real 0 star view we where lucky for the first 5 mins to get some good photos before the cloud came down...the food around here no matter where you go our what you spend is terrible...bring your own...this is on a major main highway through Bali and the road is extremely busy with very large lorry ...be warned ...your life in your hands would be a good phrase !!!.... Good luck try not to get a hotel here they are all extremely poor quality and value...you've been warned my friends !!!

“Getting ready for some stress”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Im not sure I even saw the lake the hawkers were after me. I bought some postcards and they came from everywhere. I kept saying no and they would not stop chasing me. They're wye people selling almost dead puppies with flies all over them hardly breathing from the heat. The hawkers followed me too the car and would not let me shut the door still pushing stuff in my face. I would have bought from all of them if they had of backed off. I was almost having a panic attack by the time I was in the car. My driver didn't help much.

“Great view, average food.”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

The view of the Volcano was great and worth the trip up the mountain. Don't bother eating at the restaurant the food was average at best and the price was way over the top compared with the rest of Bali.

“Nice view”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

It's an overview spot to the late and the volcano, Nice place and worth a visit if you have enough time, however, i don't recommend eating there! it's expansive and the quality of food is bad no taste ... it's rubbish!! i would recommend you to take some snacks and just eat in Ubud when you come back.
