Good, convenient position behind the Four Seasons, close to the beach. Staff were nice. Nice spa facilities. Received a villa upgrade from 3 bed to 4 bed with a view of the hillside and some ocean glimpses. Karma is selling itself on providing top end luxury but this set of villas in Jimbaran is looking a bit tired inside and they seem to be taking a few short cuts on the important details that make for a luxury hotel - particularly in Bali where there are plenty that do it really well. It's nice, comfortable and the design is reasonably impressive at first, but I'm not sure that it's living up to the Small Luxury Hotels of the World brand. I would have been disappointed if we'd paid the full rack rate - but we got a pretty good deal through Booking.com so it was fine for the few nights we needed it.
The hotel is excellent and the staff were very kind and cooperative. Additionally, the price was very good for a luxurious villa. The Internet signal was so weak that it frustrate me, even after informing the hotel. The hotel location was faraway from the seashore. Mosquitos have been a big problem also.
Excellent service and facilities in a wonderful setting
Total privacy Location
fantastic service by staff, nothing too much, always called by first name, amazing villas, facilities.. swimming pool was a little bit cold in the villa.
The stay was great, they were pleasant when we asked them for a late check out, and even packed us complimentry early breakfast when we set out early one morning. The breakfast buffet was classy, although there weren't as many options as you would expect from a five star.
The rooms were excellent and all other facilities superb. The staff were helpful and attentive. some aspects of room lighting could be better
The hotel is in need of a slight upgrade but it is big, clean and safe. It was a fair walk to our room from the reception area, but the grounds are really big and well maintained. The pool is also big and great if you have kids with you. If you want to sight-see, renting a car is really cheap, I think that we paid $* U.S so the parking facilities is a bonus. \n \nIt is only a few minutes from the airport, but cabs are so very cheap that it does not make too much diffference where you stay in the area. All-in-all, a reasonably good hotel.
Staff attitude, Room size, Resturant View of the Room, No Tea and Coffee in the room, Extra charges for the slippers, robes and the bad. Only two water bottels in room however the booking was 2 Adults and 2 Children. Resturant serving coffee / tea only at the beginig of the breakfast and it was only warm.
The location was amazing and the facilities really added to a fun time. The staff was excellent. Really cool place to stay. The drink specials were great. The advertisement shows the waterslides, but they are tiny in comparison to the picture. The food is very expensive too, in comparison to places in Bali.
The location of the hotel is good, the staffs are very friendly. The television is very small.
1 the swimming pool(s) is great; 2 live music was good; 3 multiple options to eat although I didn't use it; 4 the atmosphere of music all arround in the hotel. Music was played in the hallways in the hotel as well. Not loud at all but I could here it when I was in my room. Because of tiles on the floor in the hallways in my room I could here anything what was going on in the hallways.
Pool excellent, but never seen staff cleaning throughout the day Stayed at several hotels in bali but found the Facilities extremely outdated, room very poor and breakfast average for Hard Rockk Hotel
The hotel is conveniently located near the beach & mall. Room was spacious and breakfast spread was great. We loved the pool & Taboo for the children's activity. This is our 3rd visit to Hard Rock hotel. Not easy to take metered taxi out of the hotel, frequently have to wait. hotel seems more keen to promote in house transport.
MORI from reception was great thanks mori for ur help , all staff was smiling and at hand , best trips arranged by the hotel use it it is cheaper than if u try to do it by ur self, if u will stay in Kuta stay in Hard Rock
Location Service Atmosphere Décor / Good clean Rooms Food Pretty Much everything else I have stayed here multiple times - No real negatives, although drink prices at centre stage bar are a little high to other places in Kuta
The staff are all very friendly We were put in a corner room with a broken air conditioner, lumpy mattress, no balcony, non smoking (even though smoking was requested)... Spent as much time away from the room as possible.
Location, clean comfy beds, great breakfast. Beach, food, shopping, and entertainment within a short walk Too many people for my taste and a bit loud with all the music.
the music, the food, the pool the rooms and the bathrooms
The staffs are very friendly & helpful na
My son was married at the hotel and I was most impressed with the service of the staff, their politeness and the facilities. I was most impressed with the young woman that checked me in for breakfast most mornings. As with all the staff she was polite and cheerfull. the remoteness from the action spots like kuta and legion but this could also be a good thing. Maybe a shuttle service to these places would be a good thing
excellent, has good location on cliff
Brilliant location, right on the beach. Food was good and relatively inexpensive in comparison to the room rates.
Great place for vacation with breath taking views, ocean, etc.. Food & drinks are very expensive in the hotel. Only one restaurant open during the day. NO other activities (like shows for kids, evening music, etc..) in the hotel other than swimming pool.
it was the perfect hotel for our Honeymoon.we loved the staff especially Sudar and Ady!! Wonderful Restaurant at the beach side "Shore"
It's a beautiful place! Great views and great swimming pools. Very romantic! 1. The seawater along the beach is actually quite dirty. After a few minutes in the sea, I couldn't stand it anymore and had to go back to the swimming pools which were very clean and comfortable, but hey we are at the beach and isn't it shame that you can't swim in it? 2. The internet service is not good. You need to pay a lot to have internet in your room. You can have wi-fi in the lobby area but it's really really slow and they cut it off at around 9pm, so not convenient at all. 3. The slippers are too fragile. My husband's and my slippers were both broken during the first day.
The pool and the thematic dinners The ladies at the front desk (reception) were not very helpful and had trouble understanding english. They didn't seem very aware of their duties and responsabilities. On the other hand, during check out, the staff was very high standard
I liked the beach, and the design of the hotel Choice of restaurants and food limited, and the fact that breakfast was included with the room at the booking.com price.
It was the perfect exclusive abode to continue our honeymoon experience. We honestly had a wonderful stay. The only thing we could fault is the limited breakfast but that was very minor in the scheme of things.
Non-working room phone, ants in room, cockroaches in breakfast buffet area, no alcohol in in-room mini bar, leaky bathroom faucet, ineffective A/C, lack of organization and coordination amongst staff and departments, management attempts to backtrack on promises. Three star hotel at very best.
the staff on the whole were very friendly although sometimes service was a bit lacking -although this was mainly in the pool bar area. yes lots-the hotel is in need of major renovations-it is very untidy and needs improvements in every area!!! definetly not enough sunbeds in either the pool area or on the beach-guests were having to reserve beds at a very early hour and indeed I suspect some people were doing this the night before!!!!
Actually nothing...... This hotel is not entitled to be 4 star hotel. Extremely expensive compared to the quality you get. Very old facilities, although they say renovated 2009, I stayed at the executive junior suite. The beach at the hotel is nothing. Drinks are terrible and expensive. Dinner was expensive and the worst I had in Bali, by far. Strongly suggest not to go......The cost would be good for 50 $/day maybe.
breakfast buffet was good.
everything even the location I prefer it for couples to live the real romantic nothing
The pool Renovations, the hallway smelt of solvent and people were working in nearby rooms 12 hours a day
staff is friendly beach is average and sometimes very loud due to jetskis, motorboats etc. food choice and quality is rather poor
massages, beach, pool
Very well priced and good location. Room was spacious and the balcony was great. Room service was average.
We liked the ambience, the room, the staff & cleanliness. it was a marvellous experience.
Nice Hotel, good pool, the rooms are big and very clean, staff is friendly beach is not so good, not suited for swimming, food at italien restaurant was not so good
The hotel is absolutely stunning, with modern, tasteful and luxurious finishes. It is connected by frequent tram to its sister resort (Ayana) and to a private beach. It's a little out of the way from Jimbaran itself, and requires an inexpensive taxi ride to and from town. Food at the resort is good but expensive. The spa is astronomically expensive by Bali standards, although it is in line with Western high end resorts. The Rock Bar at the Ayana (for which Rimba guests get priority access) is a lifelong memory (although VERY expensive). The staff are extremely friendly and willing to help. The beach is beautiful. Location is quite convenient to the airport. In the early morning, it was only about a 10-15 ride. Honestly think it was our one-time bad luck, as opposed to a constant problem, but the air conditioning in our room could not be adjusted, even after we called for technicians to come and "fix" it. The temperature in our room hovered between hockey arena and cold-freezer. Made for poor sleep in an otherwise very comfortable room. Also, despite all the attention, the hotel managed to forget about giving us a promised wake up call. Fortunately, I set my own alarm just in case. But if I hadn't, we would have missed our early morning flight. The beach is very beautiful, but it's not for swimming. There are lots of big waves and big rocks, and the red flag is probably out 99% of the time. All in all, despite the shortcomings, I still believe this to be an outstanding hotel. Well worth the money (and priced much cheaper than many hotels that are likely comparable in quality).
All staffs are GST! Greet, smile and thank you! Best resort in Bali. We booked our stay via kayak and when check in, was told by receptionist that breakfast is not included in my package which have been confirmed by agent kayak. I showed them that my booking is inclusive of breakfast, I then emailed to kayak but no response from them till date. Rimba is really nice, after check in, receptionist called and said that the resort will extend breakfast to us for the our stay in Rimba. The staffs at Rimba ensure that whatever request you have will be fulfilled at their best possible. Not that I can think of..
The atmosphere was good. Pool was great Price to high for bali. Had to pay for poor wifi connection
Nice resort. It is about 20 years old, but they do a good renovation. Beautiful architecture: wonderful reception - nice bedroom. Nice garden and clean beach. Close to the airport. The airport is open 24 h a day! Old air condition. Most people did not use the retaurant. It is expensive in comparison to the restaurants outside on the beach.
Right on the busy Jimbaran Beach which is lovely, plenty of good value beach bars very close by. The hotel lacks any atmosphere.
Room is big, nice garden, private beach and swimming pool. No wifi in the room. Not sure whether it's because of the air-con or the wooden furniture, there is very strong scent in the room, too strong to fall asleep, basically I didn't sleep all night long.
Beautiful setting just next to the sea. The spaciousness and Balinese design of each lodging surronded by different varieties of trees,shrubs, plants and flowers simply make it seem like a peaceful paradise. All in all, a great place to retreat in serenity and tranquility. The lobby is also very impressive although a bit liveless! Staff do not always observe the "Do Not Disturb" sign - too eager to clean the room?! The internet-charge is much too exorbitant (50,000IRP) in proportion to the fact that it is slow and in a very small room with not enough privacy. Hotel room can do with a bit of facelift.
Nice, clean rooms, welcoming staff, great buffett breakfast. Expensive food/drinks. Just outside the hotel is a very nice and very cheap restaurant. Also, bottled water and soda cheap outside the hotel
Very good food. Good big pool. During rainy season Jimbaran Beach gets dirty
lovely buildings in the style of Balinesian temples are placed in a beautiful tropical garden, wide sandy beach close to the hotel compex with shade and enough sunbeds to relax, romantic sundown and dinner in the fish warungs on the beach.
Very beautiful territory of hotel, good beach, the good location. Awful rooms and bathrooms! The urgent renovation Is required!
just the landscape and breakfast pictures on website are deceiving. very old.needs massive makeover .full of mosquitoes .doesn’t worth the money.very popular for Russians.
Fantastic tropical garden, nice Balinese architecture, tranquility & cosiness/ However the ocean was very dirty (full of debris0 compared to nearby stretches of shore at Intercontinental and other hotels
Gives the impresion of abandoned area,everything dirty around,only 3 unbrelas available in pool area the rest were broken and lay aside,I am sure this hotel will close down soon
suitable location if you just want to unwind at the beach (1 minute walk) or relax in the private pool. very friendly and helpful staff. located right next to the jimbaran seafood restaurants on the beach. the sunsets are not to be missed. may be a little out of the way if you want the busy shopping and clubbing areas of Bali. more options at breakfast would help as we were there for 5 days and only had a choice of american or indonesian breakfast.
Everything was perfect! the staff was very friendly and tried to make your holiday as good as possible.All the time smiling and willing to satisfy your needs. The location is very good because:- very close to the sea (you have to cross a chain of restaurants but this is no problem); - the seafood restaurants across the parking lot are faboulos. I recomend the one right in front of the Vilas - logo with blue color - I forgot its name! Also the place is very quiet and you can really enjoy relaxing time at your own pool. All the time staff needed to come and clean the rooms were calling before in order not to disturb you. This hotel was the best experience ever! Hardly can be called as something I did not like was the fact that the breakfast is not so varied...but when you have everything else there - it does not even count
The villa we stayed (from the 2nd night onwards) is private and peaceful. Liked the private jacuzzi. On the first night we we given a room next to the public roads. It was noisy right into the middle of the night. Beach is not easily accesible as we have to walk through restaurants with excessive smoke coming from seafood grill.
Private swimming pool was very nice. In total the villa was nice: two rooms + bathroom +small garden with gazebo. Free wi-fi in the restoran light in the bedroom was poor... you are not able to read a book before sleeping.. also in the bathroom. If they will have a special room for massage and spa - will be great.. Also wi-fi in villa. In the restoran should be more wide menu for drinks.. Now if you was to dring whiskey you should get the whole bottle
Excellent Wi-fi was not free - it's bad.
Very good hotel. I enjoyed it. Service at the highest level. Ideal for honeymooners. Beach nearby. I enjoyed it.
The villa is well situated near a beautiful beach. Inside Villa is beautiful and luxury. Good for privite settings. The website picture is misleading. The villa is not on the beach. The chairs on beach are outside villa boundary. It is not very comfortable. Since Villa is right in front of many seafood resturants, the air can be very smokey. There is big parking lot right in frond of villa, noisy.
we enjoyed the setup of the resort as we had adult children with us but still had privacy.It was great having the pool and private yard and staff were great. no
Very kind and helpful staff. Beautiful hotel A little noisy because closed to the main road
The hotel upgrade into an apartment. It was amazing
Friendly service Found the persistant calls to my room to pick up my room service tray a bit invasive.
All Staff is very good of service mind. I am so impressive with all of them.
pas grand chose, pas de plage, pas d'attention pour les hommes d'affaires la facturation qui n'a pas tenu compte que j'ai du abreger mo sejour ....vous avez facturé 3 nuits d eplus...(avec une balance positive de 3.000000 roupies?)Pas de signal wi fi dans les chambres et en plus vous faites payer 10 dolars:jour! lamentable, Vous ne respectez pas les engaements pris avec l'ASIC (congres cafe) quant aux prix des chambrs...incorrects! je pense d'ailleurs aviser le guide du routard de vos pratiques de prix , de facturation,.... sans reponse à ma plainte
The location of the hotel. The stuff is not that all helpful. I waited for over two hours for check-in and from their response, it seems it was pretty normal to them which is a bit hard to accept.
We've got an upgrade to better room for free. Studio room was really big. Big choice for breakfast buffet. Very bad smell from the air con. It couldn't happen in new 4 star hotel. Beach chair selection can be not enough during high season.
Transportation from hotel to the beach was not flexible, was raining and must wait until beach car came? Since it takes only 2 minutes from the hotel, due to the weather, the car should be flexible to pick up guest anytime when needed.
Typical hotel from worldwide hotel network: rooms, food, service are standardized. In general price/quality is good, but you will not find there any special Balineese features. For our purposes (last night before departure after a 2-week trip through Bali by rented car) it was a good option, but I will not advise to stay there if this the only hotel on Bali in your journey - you can loose a lot of local specifics.
The rooms were very modern and roomy. AC worked very well. Food was average and pricey. Breakfast buffet was comparable to 2 star hotel in Vegas. Private beach was small, nothing to do except soak in the ocean and get a tan.
Luxurious, spacious rooms. Money well spent. Housekeeping was not always up to their standard.....
very peaceful at night time, privacy of villas
Beautiful villa with friendly service
The staff at this hotel were incredible. Excellent service.the fact that they offer free transport around the area is a big plus.
Villa was what i expected from web photos. nice pool, very comfty beds, quiet, pretty fish pond , large bathrooms - outdoor garden style felt a little uncomfortable to use the toilet sitting in a garden...but got used to it, kinda. Main desk staff were very accommodating with transportation around the area and booking resturants. Easy walk to the huge, interesting beach. Kitchen not really set up for use by guests. bare bones services, but what they offered was very gracious and well done. Fish were starving, get some proper fish food! Needed better lighting at vanity and dressing/closet area.
good services and very comfort the price is expensive
the rock bar and pets for my baby!!! Excellent ideas The blockage lift access to rock bar due to wedding ceremony
Comfortable, friendly nothing
the staff are really excellent. One of the best managed hotels I've stayed in , and I've stayed all over the world. Facilities are absolutely superb well designed, well maintained. the gardens are a feature. no
The ground facilities were fantastic (pools, bars etc), food was also really good. Rock Bar is amazing at sunset! Room faciities are a little dated, even with an upgrade which we recieved. You are paying for the resort facilities. The resort is fairly remote from any other location for shopping or eating, would be nice if the resort ran shuttles other than just Kuta.
Strongly recommend to visit Bar on the Rock. Amazing! Grill Restaurant is good as well. Cleanliness is clearly below 5 stars hotel standard. Location is not the best one - you are pretty isolated in this hotel.
i love it, will come again
The breakfast is great and the staff are lovely - they were happy to change my room for me. If you are looking for a wedding venue, the hotel has beautiful pavilions and superb landscaping to create a dream setting. If you want a resort hotel in the sun that happens to be in Bali and where you'll be pampered, this is the place, but be aware that extras cost extra. If you want to actually experience Bali, think twice. It is an isolated, self-contained resort. Saying it is in Jimbaran Bay is deceptive - Jimbaran is 7 or 8 km away - if you want the famous "eating on the beach" experience, you'll need a taxi. There is a shuttle service, but it is to Kuta - the very place I wanted to avoid on my trip round Bali. Fortunately this was my last stop so I'd seen the real Bali already. You have to take their shuttle to their private beach - it is in the next bay and there are 160 steps down to the beach itself. Internet access is expensive. The standard rooms are generic American hotel style - nothing "Balinese" about them. Some have connecting doors which are not soundproof - mine was so bad I asked to be moved. The marble hallways create more noise.
Enjoyed the holiday on the beach as well as the brilliant swiming pools for entire three days. Especially, I was deeply impressed by the pool which is beside the sea with a gogeous and whole view of Indian Ocean. Of course it would be great if the hotel will be able to provide more and more attractive promotion, such as beneficial room rate, free room upgrade....
Everything was prefect and highly recommend an one-bedroom ocean view villa, however, the rock bar and the ocean pool are gogerous, you can see the whole indian ocean as well as the food in the atmospheric restaurants. Staff are professional and good services! Spa is a must there, I was lucky made at the limited ocean view spa room. We will come back again and stay with Ayana. I think the buffet breakfast at Padi was bit pricy becuase the food was really average and I didnt actually eat. I recommend to pay the same price for Dava where you can stay quiet and enjoy your good breakfast.
Aston Bali is a reasonable hotel on a now rather overpriced island. The standards of accommodation have really gone up over the last 10 years, but then, so has the price. Keep your expectations low and you will be content. The pool is quite large and seems to be clean. There always seemed to be a sufficient number of deckchairs available. Breakfast was quite good albeit monotonous after a few days. There is a gym but we did not use it. The rooms are quite large and all seem to have balconies. Air conditioning worked well and the televisions are decent sized LCD. Rooms came with mosquito repellent bats but we did not find these particularly effective as we were still eaten to death on two occasions. Wear bug spray to bed! Aston has a dubious process for processing credit card statements. Upon arrival we were asked to write our credit card details on a piece of paper. A scan of the card was also taken. Unfortunately, Aston seem to have some less than trustworthy staff as by the end of our stay, our credit card had been canceled by the bank due to the appearance of $900 in online gambling charges. The card had not been used except for this hotel booking so it is safe to say the details were taken from the hotel and used fraudulently. Recording the card insecurely is unprofessional and the hotel should improve this process. Losing a card while traveling can completely ruin a perfectly good holiday! Additionally, bathrooms could be kept cleaner.
Big, ok hotell. Friendly staff, clean area and beach. Expensive and not so good spa. Hard bed.
Bali feel and the view of the ocean. Food at dinner could be better.
The rooms were very spacious and very comfortable beds.My Spa treatment was very good and very reasonable. The a la carte restuarant was very disappointing. We did not return after the first meal there. The hot water was only tepid all of the time. We noticed maintenance works going on but parts of the hotel did appear to be tired looking.
none, the staff was rude. They didnot honer my reservation. I was given what was there which was very low class very dirty. The towles were black from so many uses. incsects were every where. I had to put my shose on top shelve to make sure nothing gets in it. I had to leave
The location, the beach, the room, the environment... No jacuzzi in the suite.
We thought it was a great location, the prices for drinks & dinners were too expensive compared to outside restaurants. Happy hour was not what was expected, not really discounted, our shower was not cleaned the whole time we were there, which was dissapointing. Activities were not advertised clearly within the hotel to express your options as to what was available to you.
Dogs on the beach :) The hotel was nic but a little bit old. The bars and restaurants were closed before the set time. The staff was not alweys polite.
I stay alone in a seaview room, but in reality many palm leaves hide the sea. It is a spacious room with LCD TV and a good shower plus whirpool. This is quite expensive rate for such kind of room
The staff were very friendly and the whole experience was relaxing and a great pamper! Some of the guests should learn how to be civil to the staff. The French were particularaly rude.
Good hotel. Royal Beach club is a good offer, but subject to ''hard sell'' from reception desk. Rooms are OK, not that big. Note: no Kingsize bed room with bath (shower only!).Excellent service. Food is good.
I've heard a lot of positive review about Westin Nusa Dua, and now I know why. From the time you walked in, the staff will make you feel that you are the special guest. They were warm and hospitable. The idea of making the kids also a special guest made this hotel my prime destination for family vacation. The hotel it self was superb: the grand lobby, main pool, the beach, kids pool, kids club, sun loungers and cocoon everywhere, sport facilities etc. The room was good. It has a modern and destinctive design, although the balcony was too small. The buffet breakfast was great. Lots of varied food. The were two downsides I would say for this hotel ie.the depth of the pool. I mean, who wants the pool with more than two meters deep for leisure purpose? The other one was the kids activity program at the kids club. They set different activity in the different day. We were there on Saturday, but my son couldn't get the rock climbing and fishing activity because they were on the other day. Saw...
The swimming pool was so beautiful and the spa programs are on promotion at the moment so I could have it a great deal!! Of course the restaurant was good as well and the price was quite resonable. mosquitos....but I think wherever you stay in Kuta, it will the same.
location is excellent make sure you ask for a non smoking room - the smoking rooms stink; also note that they close the pool for private functions so hotel guests cannot always use it - usually without any advance notice, breakfast choice a bit stale
Location was excellent and across the street from the beach Room was small with minimal facilities.
the resort was peaceful. a very mature environment. when we asked if we could book an extra night, the staff at the reception desk we not helpful, quite rude and said there were no available rooms. When we checked online, there were several available. When we approached the staff about this they were even more rude and said we would have to prove it to them by confirming online then printing at a drugstore and then they would see if there was a room available. we went else where for the night.
Nothing. Everything. The service was awful. The pool had algae growing in it. The room was dirty. It had not been swept (hair was on floor). The room was tiny. I was told it would have ocean view but all I could see from my room was the pizzahut sign. I reguarly use Accor hotels when travelling in Indonesia, but I won't again.
The hotel staff very friendly The hotel room is to small
It's very close proximity to Kuta Beach and main shopping area - it's right in the heart of things but set back off the road enough to be quiet. The beds were on the hard side and our room 311 was under the kitchen on the 4th floor so our sleep was disturbed by noise from above
Accessibility For hotel guest, they would have organize free shuttle service to/from airport.
location, service, great roof top pool bar closes too early at night...
The poolside view is excellent during sunset
The Problem was that booking.com used the wrong mailing adresse of mercure so as we arrived they did not find our reservation. That was the information on the reception.
location and room were nice breakfast time could be longer.
The bellhop service was excellent and they were very patient. We were told that there would be an airport transfer, but when we arrived at the airport, there were no indication of the airport transfer. Staff did not hold up a board to welcome and aid passengers. Plus, the receptionist was not very helpful. And the breakfast was mediocre.
Large and clean rooms, friendly (but sadly incompetent) staff. Poor breakfast, ants and insects all over. Pool was pretty dirty. Located on top of a hill far away from anything, you'll always need a taxi or the shuttle service to get anywhere.
This hotel is not a resort hotel it is very old with paint peeling off everything fron the walls to the outdoor furniture,Goodway is a hotel that caters for the Indonesian market, all Indonesian food served at breakfast ,some rooms open to streets like old motel style and domestic tourists can park outside their rooms, Unfortunately there is nothing good i can say about this hotel
