First we didn't stay at Mimpi Manis, although we did book an 8 night stay there 6 months in advance. Julia, the manager, arranged for a transfer from the airport to the villa and as we drove through Canguu. We knew something wasn't right when we drove straight past the Mimpi Manis sign and didn't stop till a lot further down the road at Villa Fare Ti'i. We had no prior warning of any changes to our booking, a simple email informing us of the change would have prevented a lot of confusion. The car stopped and they took out our belongings. Apparently this was where we were to stay. We were confused and weren't sure what was happening. This was our first trip to Bali and we booked our holiday based on trip advisor reviews and photos of Mimpi Manis. When you arrive in a new country and you are taken to a different place of stay with no prior warning it is confusing and a little stressful. Furthermore when you book and pay for a specific hotel/villa you expect to stay there, we would have preferred to have been taken to Mimpi Manis explained what had happened and let us decided for ourselves whether we wanted to be moved. that way we have a true comparison between the two villas to base our decision on. When Julia arrived she showed us our room which was a very basic room with no working tv, or tea/coffee facilities or fridge. It was quite small and nothing like the pictures of a beautiful tropical villa we thought we booked at Mimpi Manis.
In saying this, after all that we managed to liaise with Julia through our tour guide and she promptly gave us a good upgrade, but we still weren't at Mimpi Manis. When we did speak to Julia she said that construction near the Mimpi Manis villas was very noisy and she didn't want us to be disturbed so we were moved to Fare Ti'i at the last minute. This may or may not have been the case and they may have overbooked Mimpi Manis, however we'll give them the benefit of the doubt. We were booked there from 17-25 Sept possibly other reviewers could verify this.
Overall our stay in Bali was good, albeit a little shaky and confusing to start with, and Julia gave us an excellent upgrade at Fare Ti'i which we appreciated however a small amount of communication prior to our arrival would have been really helpful especially since this was our first visit to Bali.
We shall review Fare Ti'i separately.
