I have never been so disapointed with our accommodation that we had booked and paid for before we arrived with Bali Villa Havens!
After my Husband having 2 brain tumours removed and numerous brain infections with Meningitis and Staph we thought we'd give our family a nice getaway and book a private villa for our family only to arrive to flithy unsafe accommodation that we paid $5000 for.
The doors didn't close enough to even lock and these were the ones opening up to the pool and the same room were the 2 baby cots had ants crawling all over them and the babies could get out to the pool let a lone all the mosquitos coming in all hours of the day.
The Kitchen was absolutely filthy white walls were all dirty from grease and grime. Bathrooms had hair all clogged ontop of drains.
Bedroom doors had the timber all split and separated just to mention a few things.
When I asked for a refund as it was not what was advertised I got yelled at by the Australian lease owners and told that yes the villa wasn't right but to go back to it anyway as there was no way they would give me refund.
They also said they welcomed good or bad review's so here i am.
Disappointed doesn't even begin to sum up how we felt. After all the sickness we have been through with my husband i thought we were doing the right thing.
Be aware of Bali Villa Havens Pondok Dewi (Legian)is not what it looks like on the internet.
I thought my kids and my Husband were so deserving of a nice vacation that we saved a long time for but got disapointed as soon as we arrived.
We love Bali and will certainly be back just not staying with Bali Villa Havens!!!
Please look at the photo's i have up loaded and after hearing other peoples stories about other villas Bali Villa Havens have i feel greatful that we left the accommodation as peoples stories about being robbed in there villas is not something i want to put my family through.
Bali villa havens have now blocked me from there facebook page as they have other people that have started asking questions.
This villa is in a great location everything is in walking distance. We enjoyed our stay. The only issue we had (and it is trivial) there is no dining table to eat at. Our children are older so we didnt have any issues with the 2 bedrooms being away from the main section. The staff are very helpful.
Brilliant cheap clean. Staff are fantastic!! Perfect location in leigian especially if u don't have a car. Good food near by.
Our villa was located close to main street but far enough away. Plenty of room there was 8 adults & 2 children.
No complaints what so ever. Breakfast and our room made up daily. All the staff are excellent and a pleasure to meet them. Would definitely stay here again.
The villa was clean and tidy and nothing better than after a day out to come back to villa and swim in your private pool.. We all enjoyed our stay there very much.
Great value for money
Lovely house, really good for 2 families with kids. Good sized pool and nice staff.close to markets and restaurants and safe with the locked gate.
The pictures look amazing on trip advisor but the property was in fact not overly clean. One of the bathrooms (upstairs) could not be used due to the horrendous smell in there. The door needed to be shut the whole time we were there and the person in that room had to share the bathroom with the other room upstairs... one of the 2 rooms (semi detached) to the main dwelling also had a bad smell in it.. the kitchen was very small and we had tiny ants the whole time we were there (even though we washed down the benches everytime they were used) When we did our final sweep (to make sure we hadn't left anything) before we left, we found old cotton buds under one of the beds and rubbish under another. The breakfast included was ok but one of the ladies is very pushy when it comes to getting extras. One day she provided a small fruit platter (that we didn't ask for) and we had to pay her 50k ($5) for it. And on another day, some of us decided to get extra (on the continental) breakfast. 5 people had mushrooms and 2 people had baked beans (they charged us per person) we payed an extra 140k ($14) for a small side of mushrooms and half a tin of baked beans. Very expensive. The lounge provided is extremely uncomfortable and I mean extremely! I wouldn't recommend this property to friends or family..
We stayed in this villa for 9 nights over the Christmas new year period. The villa is very nice but the power did trip out on a number of occasions the sewage smell coming from the upstairs bathrooms was quite bad as was the moth ball smell used to mask it. For our arrival we had asked for a carton of bintang and a carton of cider to be chilled in the fridge. The cider and beer was in the fridge but it was not cold as they had not turned the fridge on and as it was very late we did not want to go out to get cold ones. This Villa definitely needs improvements to the management and the overall cleanliness. The breakfast was awesome once we got them organised and they turned up at the right time. There are quite a few issues with security as the doors do not shut properly and they seemed to be coming and going a lot, different people would turn up at random times as they were working on two new rooms. We did put a stop to this after a couple of days but no one asked us if it was ok before we arrived which was disappointing. The two new rooms added would be ok if you had adult children but not for smaller children as they are totally separate from the main house and you need to walk over a bridge which is over the pool to get to them. We did not feel that the pool would be big enough for five bedrooms as it is only small and is really only for about six people.
