We have just got back from 16 glorious nights in paradise and I most definitely will be returning!
The staff were amazing and couldn't do enough for you.. friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.
There was always a variety of meals to have in the restaurants and we certainly never went hungry. Some meals might not have been exactly to our taste ie. Spaghetti bolognaise but all were well cooked and nicely presented. We had a romantic dinner on the beach which was amazing and the steak tenderloin was to die for! Bali produces their own wine which I wasn't hopeful about but it is really good and so much better than many I have tasted. I wasn't as keen on their local gin but there were so many other good drinks on offer, it wasn't an issue.
We had a junior suite which was exactly like the picture and so much better! The bathroom was big and the range of toiletries provided was exceptional. When I return I won't bother with shower gels, shampoo etc because theirs were lovely! The only thing they could improve on was the quality of the towels or investing in some new ones. They were OK but could have been bigger/better. The pool towels were also a bit hit and miss and could probably do with being upgraded too.
The pool was amazing with more than enough sunbeds however I would really recommend that they provide some parasols as it was difficult to find enough shade. There was plenty on the beach but it would also be good to have some poolside as it was VERY hot.
Good location, nice staff, clean in all hotel and surroundings, food was excelent. We did not choose all inclusive because there are restaurants in the hotel and also in the neighborhood. Quiet place to stay and enjoy pool and beach.
