Last trip to Bali we stayed in Nusa Dua and had a great holiday. We wanted to escape Christmas in Bali. This time we thought we would try Legion/Seminyak area. This resort came very highly recommended from several friends so thought we would give it a go. They got us at check-in and offered us an upgrade to a lagoon room for an extra $US100 per night. I said no but they told us it came with a $U60 per night hotel credit due to the construction and access to the Garden Club which has free cocktails from 5-7pm. So my husband agreed. But then they told us the room wasnt ready so we had to wait for what felt like an eternity. Once we got there the room was lovely. The bed was big, the direct access to the pool was a great idea. Aircon wasnt fabulous though, didn't get below 22 degrees which can be hard to sleep in when you like it cold. We rarely heard the construction work. The rooms were very clean and so were the grounds. The staff were very polite always greeting you with big smiles. The breakfast was good IF you went before 0830, after that it was a mad house.
We stayed from 20th - 28th Dec. Prior to Xmas it was quiter, after Xmas all the drunken yahoos turned up and made it less fun. We were very pleased to leave when we did.
Wasnt overly thrilled about Donibu the main restaurant, service average and small meals. Go outside the hotel to get better prices and service. We went to Hitari twice which is about a 10 min walk along the beach front.
The lagoon pool is nice but as it is shallower the kids tend to hang around. This is really frustrating when you are sitting at the pool bar and getting splashed by kids. I do have kids and if they were with me they would have quickly been told not to splash around the adults. Other parents dont seem to mind their kids bothering others!
The beach is foul, covered in rubbish but it is not the hotels responsibility to clean up. If you are looking for a nice beach go to Nusa Dua.
It poured rain non stop for 3 days which made it miserable, then we got sick for the last few days, not sure why as we were always very careful about the food and water. We wont be coming back to Bali again.
PS - get Yakult and take it every day to stop the travellers gastro. All the little mini marts have it and its less than $1 for a 5 pack.
