To escape the madness of Bali traffic and over-eager shopowners I would highly recommend the Legian Beach Hotel. Practically on the beach and only 15 min walk to either Kuta or Seminyak. We stayed in a room (102) and had no complaints although i could understand the complaints of noise if you had a room at the back due to its closeness to some bars...
If you can afford it then go for one of the bungalows set in lush tropical gardens. Really good breakfast and some nice restaurants. would recommend trying the Teppinyaki restaurant upstairs, the waitress and chef really put on a show and got us involved. Staff are really friendly also.
We spent a lot of time looking for a good hotel before going and were really happy with our choice! There are literally thousands of hotels of all descriptions scattered around this area and you could easily end up in a nightmare location
2 really nice pools also and plenty of sun loungers.
If you do decide to go to across to the beach then be prepared for the hawkers! It's a public beach and the hotel can only control what goes on in around their grounds.
P.S. For anyone going to Bali for the first time then you are in for a shock if you don't have the patience of a saint.....everybody wants you to spend money in their shop and a lot of them are over eager to get you into their shop! A firm but polite "no thanks" will do but you will repeat those words a thousand times a day...
