Great value hotel
Great position opposite Muddy’s playground. Clean spacious rooms. Ask for room on top floors for fantastic views over the water. Great Balinese restaurant next door.

6/10 Good

Good location right on the esplanade but a bit away from the all the restaurants and the lagoon pool - 5-10mins walk. Staff were professional and helpful. Rooms were comfortable and clean, appeared to be recently renovated and looked modern. Glass windows/doors did not keep out any noise - could hear people talking in the street, traffic, birds and loud music from adjacent property. Pool warm and needs complete reno. Slate tiles around pool crumbling, broken and very untidy. No on-site eating options but cafe across street great although extremely busy- 25 minute wait for coffee.
