Very satisfied – good value for money! September 15, 2010

Posted by Mentari Sanur Hotel in Guest's Review.

The hotel is down a little dingey alleyway, which quite alarmed me when we drove up in the taxi. At that point, I was thinking “What have I done?” But once I got into the foyer, it was like another world. The gardens are lush and immaculate, the pool area is lovely and the restaurant (and food) is gorgeous. The room was basic and some things could be improved, like a window that wouldn’t shut properly, and an A/C that leaked water. Also, the free wi-fi was only available in the restaurant (so ask for a room close to it if this is important) and there were no English-language TV stations available. Also, pool side loungers were in short supply. The staff though are excellent, helpful, polite and could never do enough to ensure I learnt a bit more Indonesian lol. There is a small mini-mart just 2 minutes walk away, ATM’s about 3-4 minutes away, and the beach is about 10 minutes walk away. I had a 2nd storey room but the views were awful. Out the front window it over-looked the pool area (beautiful) but to the sides and rear, it was roof-tops and a building site! Thru the building site, though, I could just see the ocean! The more I got used to Bali (this was my first trip), the more I got used to the dingey back alleyway and the building sites/roof tops for these are the norm in Bali. I’m definitely going back to both Bali and this hotel and look forward to seeing their lovely staff again!
