I think a review should be as fair as possible, so let me say a couple things that I really liked about Anda Amed. It has a wonderful view of the ocean, very good staff, and beautiful rooms with just what you'd want in Bali: AC, a TV, lovely patio areas, etc. The pictures on trip advisor seemed accurate.
Here's what my wife and I found difficult. Fist, the bug situation. Bugs are obviously unavoidable in Bali, and we were well aware of and comfortable with that. But the bug netting hanging around our bed in Anda Amed was a bit dirty with bugs and light stains. We did a quick check of the mattress for a certain type of bug that can make life very difficult (we've had an infestation once before, and so we are particularly cautious when traveling) and found a disturbing amount of dark particles in the mattress seams--which are the telltale sign. Upon bringing this to the attention of the staff, who were exceptionally kind and accommodating, we were shown another room, but it had similar problems.
Second, and here's what really made things difficult that day, when the staff brought these concerns to the attention of the owner, she came to us and began to scold my wife and I for even daring to suggest her hotel had a bug problem in the mattresses. By that point, we were ready to leave for another hotel. We were willing to pay for that night, but she insisted we pay her the sum total for all the nights we had booked. Needless to say, we weren't happy about that.
This may all sound pretty bad, and to an extent it is. But there have been many positive reviews of this hotel, and I would urge those who have read this to have a look at the positive reviews also. Many people have apparently had a very good experience here, and chances are you might too.
