After having some bad experiences with locals trying to show my girlfriend and I hotels to stay at in Lovina, we checked expedia for a decently priced hotel. The hotel is approx 20-30 minutes away from Lovina, which makes it a little inconvenient to go to dinner or lunch, but it exceeded our expectations. A black sand beach is near. Buddhist temple and hot holy spring water is approx 15 minutes away. Staff is extremely courteous and views are superb! Will definitely stay here again!
Wonderful place to stay if you like snorkelling right off the beach, water had good visibility and lots of fish and coral. Room was extremely clean and comfortable and staff were really helpful and friendly. Special thanks to Rocky for all the help he gave us and was great meeting Mona and Boy. Food in restaurant was good and really reasonable prices for food and drink and mini bar. Great having free shuttle into Lovina however wasn't a very long walk. Also great little restaurants in the town itself like Up to You, Akar - a lovely vegetarian cafe/restaurant and Jasmine a really nice Thai restaurant. Coffee at Up to You was awesome.
The hotel itself was good. I have no complaints in that quarter. The area however is not the best. All the neighbors rise early in the morning and cook their breakfast and indeed their maize which they sell in the market over a woodstove. The smell of smoke permeates everything, the outside air, the room inside, even your clothes. We could not sit on that beautiful balcony because of the smoke. Then you go to the dining room which overlooks the ocean in the hope of finding some respite from the wood smoke, only to be 'attacked' by the many and numerous joss sticks that the staff put around the tables. By midday it is better and one can enjoy a swim in the pool which is really lovely. The gardens are well kept and a calm atmosphere prevails, even though the hotel in on a noisy and busy main road.
The restaurant was good too. We had all our meals there and can recommend it.
The touts selling necklaces lean over the wall of the restaurant and disturb your meal!

A unique, cosy hotel located directly on the ocean front. Away from the hustle and bustle but not far from the centre of …More
Interact with the staff and they are more than happy to help you with little extras. The rooms are basic and clean in the main traffic areas but this is Bali. .The hotel is showing it's age, but I'd stay again..loved it. Cheap/Reasonable prices, old fashioned, in away..nice pool and satisfying breakfast options.
