This was my first stay at Rama Garden after having friends recommend it to me. Overall, I was delighted with my stay.
The Hotel is fairly small (roughly 30 rooms) compared to most- which to me is one of the attractions. If you are a social person it is a great way to meet other people.
The rooms are a decent size, and have been recently renovated. The bathrooms are a highlight, and feature a huge walk in shower with oversized shower head. The beds are modular and can be either made into two singles, or a larger king size. The beds are extremely comfortable, and have lovely plush pillows. Air-conditioning worked without a fault (sometimes too well when you leave it on and come back to your room.)
The front bar at the hotel is a great place to watch all sport and typically the AFL/NRL or whatever sport is on is well catered by the various televisions set up at the bar. Food is good, for a pub style menu.
Breakfast included is ok- our group preferred to go to Bellavista mostly for the coffee and greater range of brekky choices.
Rooms are available upstairs or downstairs. Personally being young I did not mind the upstairs but if you are older or get unsteady after a few beers it is probably best to stay on a ground floor room as the stairs are steep compared to Australian standards. The other advantage of a ground floor unit is that you can get an esky for your room (and ice supplied each day by housekeeping) and keep it outside for poolside drinks or beers.
One thing we found useful was to buy incense or mosquito coils for around our pool side unit. Whilst they regularly fog for mosquitos it is a tropical island with occasional Dengue so for a small price it is a precaution worth taking.
Wifi is available for free on a rolling password system that changes every 3 hours. I have a new device so I found access fast and easy but others complained about it being slightly patchy or sometimes slow. I don't go on holiday to spend all day on Facebook so to me I was not bothered by this. Personally I thought the Wifi was great, but I guess to a teenager having to go to the front desk every 3 hours to get a password may be anooying. First world problems, really.
Great location- honest money changer in Jimmy's DVD store about 2 stores up on the right hand side (Shrek). Short trip to great eating (Mozzarellas at the top of Padma is great) and pubs and shopping everywhere. Short walk to the beach.
The pool was great, and regularly skimmed for the beatiful frangipani flowers that fall into the pool. The pool could do with a couple of steps off the pontoon they have to make entry and exit easier but a small gripe.
Staff are great. Price is great value for money. Located centrally in Legian. Why are you still reading this? Book it.
