Stayed at the Pelangi for 6 nights with my other half last week.
The hotel itself was lovely, we stayed in a superior room, which was nice, air-con worked well and room was exceptionally clean. Even though the room was basic it worked really well for a Bali holiday as all you tend to do is sleep there!
The pool was great, swim up bar was a bit expensive so we bought our own Bintangs down from our room. Watching the sun set from the pool was great though.
The upstairs restraunt was divine, definately worth the extra money, gorgeous view even once the sun had gone down. Breakfast was fine, same things every morning but it was all nice.
Beware of Kelly and her friends down on the beach as they try to charge 850,000 Rp for getting your nails done and they will constantly hassle you anytime you walk onto the beach.
There is also a little hut cafe right infront of the Pelangi on the beach with cheap cocktails and yummy food, you can also see all the planes land there!
The internet is quite expensive but there is a lovely restraunt across the road with yummy spring rolls and free wi-fi. The safe deposit boxes in reception are very secure, something that I was very sceptical about.
The real downside of the Pelangi is the road that it is on doesnt allow empty taxi's down it. Hailing a taxi on the main road is easy but trying to catch a taxi to the airport proved difficult as we would have to lugg our luggage to the taxi rank. We ended up booking a driver through the tour man in reception costing 80,000Rp not heaps but still a bit of a pain!
A word of advice in general with taxis is to only catch the blue bird taxis. ( they are the light blue corolla looking ones) as they wont rip you off.
We walked to Kuta everday, only about a 1/2 hour walk.
Would definately stay at the Pelangi again, shame it isn't a bit closer to the legian strip.
