I have no idea what all these people are going on about the alleyway not being lit up at night. Its fine, no there is no "street lights" in the alley way but its not as if you need a torch...unless you are seriously vision impaired, I'd love to know who whinges about these things ...we went from 30th Sep - 7th Oct, we went out every night and walked through the "dark" alley. You pass about 6 guards at each hotel/villa while walking through the alley. Its frustrating seeing the reviews as I am one of these people who will read reviews and research, probably too much. I'm glad I ignored them and honestly if thats all you can complain about??? a 3 minute walk down a alley that is not lit up like a night football match then go stay in a 5 star hotel. We had a pram and an 18month old and it was absolutely fine. Didn't even get a flat tyre...so there you go. There are more streets in Seminyak with less lighting!!! Such as out in the main strip where we saw TWO handbag snatches in front of our eyes. Im sure you would hear them in the alley if thats what your worried about haha. Walking is NOT difficult, simply put one foot in front of the other, I managed to do it night and day, no trips, no falls, not even our baby tripped....
If you researched you'd read that the villa is split over 2 levels so ppl you can't complain about your own lack of research.
Yes there are mosquitos but that's Bali....duh!!!! Be prepared, take mosquito coils like we did and burn them, we never got bitten once. I also had a plug in for the room upstairs. Its a pool villa, mossies like water, what do you expect?
The staff are MORE than willing to do anything for you, and I mean anything, I was not prepared and didn't book babysitters but guess what? The staff babysat and even the security guard for us, we felt totally at ease with this as we had a video monitor and they literally plugged it in at the front desk and watched our baby sleep. What more can you ask for?
We did hire a pool fence as once we arrived we realised it wouldn't be much of a holiday watching the 18 month old ever second around the pool, it also covered the fish pond inside, 1 week hire was $90US, cheap.
For me the breakfast was OK but I am a vegetarian who doesn't eat eggs, we had breakfast daily in the villa except the last day we went to sea circus...maybe alam warna should look at getting their breakfast from sea circus as its honestly the best food we encountered in bali, you won't find anything else like it in bali.
We can't rave enough about the place and we are sad to be home.
We will also be hiring non-slip mats next year, for adults the floor is fine but our 18month old took a few tumbles but by day 3 knew not to walk on the floor without us saying if it was OK or not.
