My friend and I stayed at the Bali Spark Resort for 3 days. The hotel is not actually on the beach, but still has nice views of the water and the volcano. Also, my friend got his scuba certification with a SSI instructor named Philip. Philip was an excellent dive master and one could probably not ask for a more diligent/thorough person to learn from. So go Phil!
The food was well priced and most of the time pretty tasty.
However, the bad part about this hotel is that they do additional services with SHADY people. For instance, my friend and I booked a round trip ticket to the Gili Islands for 1.2 mil rupiah. This snaky looking guy comes to get us and lets us know its time to leave. As soon as he puts in our luggage in the car and we get in, he says "BIG BOSS CHANGED PRICE" and of course refused to go anywhere unless we gave him additional money. BS.
And then we get back to the hotel from the Gili islands, the same guy calls us and says we haven't finished paying for the trip even though we have a receipt. He tries weasel more money from us and we just decided to pack our bikes up and leave.
Short version, good hotel for scuba if Phil is there. Bad hotel for additional services outside of scuba.
