Just returned from our second stay here. It was lovely to be recognised at reception from six months ago and given our choice of room, in Bali 2 overlooking the pool and with a sea view. The whole place is spotlessly clean, with towels and beds changed regularly. The food is plentiful and varied with a different theme every night. Contrary to previous negative reviews with regard to the card system for drinks with guests on all inclusive we did not find any problems with it. Also, regarding Cardiac Hill' my husband is 80 with a dodgy knee and I am 75 and we managed it ok. It is quite steep but only about 100 metres long so don't be put off by it. Overall we would return here anytime and indeed hope to in the future.

We arrived for a short break on Sunday the 14th to Friday the 19th May and enjoyed this hotel. We opted for B&B as we know and like some of the restaurants from previous visits so thought it would suit us. We books a studio apartment for three people and were delighted with the size and cleanliness of our room (3102) although we took a bit of time to find it. A double bed on the upper level and a single in the lower including a large sofa. Excellent storage areas also. The view from our ground floor balcony was one of the bathing areas and near the kids splash-pool. Not a great view but for the price we paid it really didn't matter. The safe was 3€ per day to hire, the room had a small kitchen area with all utensils and crockery etc. fridge and flat screen tv. Shame there was a lack of UK channels as the hotel appeared to have more British guests than other nationals although there were a few. The restaurant was clean, well set out and breakfast was ample. Choice of two types of bacon, eggs, British sausages and the usual other fried stuff and cold meats cheeses, yoghurt, cereals etc. strange there were no teaspoons though for cuppas and yoghurts, instead small stirrers and larger plastic spoons. There was a hand sanitizer at the restaurant door, only a couple of hotels we've used over the years have this, not everyone used it, it's not difficult to do! The hotel is very clean, maybe surprisingly so for it's size and amount of guests it has and all the maids were polite and worked hard. There are two large swimming pools with plenty sunbeds. The grounds-staff cleaned every morning and evening. Can't comment on lunch/dinner as we were B&B but people we spoke to didn't have any complaints. The hotel has a wide age-range of guests and everyone we spoke to were friendly. They also have a wide variety of entertainment each night although we were never in the hotel after 7pm. The only disappointment on our stay was that we had an evening flight home last night and couldn't keep the room 'til late, even offered to pay. There was a courtesy room (1101) but it was in fact just another (small) hotel room and there was a queue of us guests waiting inside the room as well as outside to use the shower, never known this before! I'd have thought a hotel this size would have a specialised shower-room/changing room area for late-goers. Apart from that we enjoyed the hotel and would use it again, although we would get an afternoon flight home so we could use the shower in our own room. Good hotel though, overall.

Stayed at the Bali 11-18th May. Went for my first solo holiday and was looking for a relaxing week and I got it.....mostly! The last 2 nights became noisy and I found it hard to sleep. I'm guessing it got busier, so not sure I'd want to go here in the height of the season. I found the food good for AI plenty of choice for everyone and I'm a fussy eater. All in all nice hotel and would probably go back.
