We decided to stay at the Stones for 12 nights during our honeymoon. First trip to Bali. The hotel is tucked just behind the hustle and noise of the Kuta beach side street. No beach views, but that is really okay. I liked being in our own little bubble, then just taking a 3 minute walk to the beach. If you stay here, you MUST get a pool view room. Any other option and I wouldn't stay here. The pool is big beautiful. Palm trees, modern look, pool bar, night time entertainment and the evening lighting make this a perfect place to hang out at or just look at from the view from your balcony. The rooms are modern and have a nice bathroom w/ amenities. We stayed in both a balcony room w/ tub and private dip pool during our stay. I'd say I actually got more use out of the balcony vs the dip pool. Dip pool was too cold for my taste at night. The breakfast buffet was included in our stay and the breakfast buffet was awesome. Tons of options. Just took forever to get a cappuccino each morning. Great dining options at hotel for lunch/dinner or pool side dining. Pool staff was the best. Super attentive, offered complementary fruit sticks on occasion and the nice, but simple touch was offering to clean sunglass lenses. Kuta is just central to the other cool cities to pop in to eat or got to the beach. Most taxi rides were $5-10. Since the hotel is located on a one way street, it got annoying to do the big loop to get back to hotel all the time. We ended up figuring out where to have the taxis drop us off on back side of Kuta and take a less 10 min walk via alley/street to get to hotel. Took same amount of time or less and cost less for taxi. Overall we had an amazing experience, loved the hotel and would recommend it to family/friends going to Bali.
Short walk to beach
No beach view (which was fine)
Not enough drawers in room (coming from US, we had no room to put anything)
Lighting in bathroom mirror area was pretty dim
Pool closes so early (like 8pm)
Located on a one way street, so you need to go in loop for those taxi rides.
