Location was great but hotel is old...”
The location of the hotel is fantastic which is pretty near to the shopping areas.. The moment we step into the hotel we were pretty impressed...the recep area was pretty big and clean, swimming pool area is great with beach view.... but when we headed to our room, we were kind of disappointed... the walkway to the room is kind of dim at night... which is kind of scary and eerie...the room amenities not comprehensive at all... No body gel and the hair dryer is kind of old school (wall attached hair dryer) which your hand will get burn if you use the hair dryer for too long... This hotel should look into getting some upgrades on the amenities and renovation of the rooms..

Wonderful hotel with lovely friendly staff. It is in a very busy area in kartika plaza with lots of traffic and extremely close proximity to discovery mall. The pool is perfect and swim up bar is roomy and fun. The restaurants in the hotel are beautiful with tasty food and drinks and spectacular entertainment every evening. This hotel is suitable for solo's, couples, friends, and families with either teenagers or young kids. It backs onto the beach which is lovely to walk up and down. Kids club looked well maintained and bright and colourful. Buffet breakfast had a lovely variety.

A classic hotel in Bali”
I hadn't stayed at this hotel in years. This was the first hotel I ever stayed at in Bali 20 years ago and I loved it then, it's also quite great to this day. There have been a lot of changes made to it since I first stayed there, but the classic Bali feel to this hotel is still there. It's a huge hotel with a large and great pool area. This hotel is right on the beach and is a great place to take photos. This hotel is also right next to Discovery mall and many restaurants. You can't go wrong staying here.
Dear Guy, Thank you for taking the time to leave such wonderful feedback. We're thrilled that you loved our location, and facilities. We truly appreciate all of your feedback and we’re excited to welcome you back to Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel, Bali! Warmest Regards, Nurna Dwiati Marketing Communications Manager
Booked hotel at last minute so got a great price on family room! Lovely hotel for families”
Enjoyed our stay, room was great size (family room) only downside was the shower over bath but in the end its just a shower. Pool facilities and playground fantastic for our teo year old. Breakfast daily was nice but selection got boring. All in all a lovely hotel to stay at, would definetly stay again

Wonderful stay in Bali”
We went their with our 4 years old daughter. Close to the airport, shopping center and Waterbom! Hotel has nice pool for kids. Perfect hotel especially if you have small ones. Will stay there again if we go to Bali.
Great, but staffs need to be a bit more careful”
Everything's great except they made us wait for about half an hour to get the room ready. We checked in quite late and were thinking the room must be ready to have the check-in in time. We waited in the lounge and they served a welcome drink or ice cream for free. And, it was a bit of carelessness of the staff that they did not keep the toothbrushes. Luckily, we took our own. Otherwise, need to ask them to get a pair.
Heerlijk verblijf van 7 nachten.”
Weer terug in het discovery hotel. Blijft voor ons het mooiste hotel in Kuta. Mooie kamer (ocean view), heerlijk uitgebreid ontbijt en het mooiste zwembad van Kuta. Het personeel is erg attent en behulpzaam. Special thanks to mr Norman from the reception who helped us check in and gave us great service just like last may. Volgend jaar zeker weer terug.
My favorite hotel in Bali for 27 years”
Although the standard rooms are a bit austair, the other facilities in the hotel such as the pool bar and the excellent complementary buffet ate really great. I have stayed in orher hotels in the Kuta area, but this one is in my opinion a best value, particularly in the low season.
The Hotel of frowns in The Land of Smiles”
My advice to anyone looking at booking this Hotel is Run!! Run away!! The staff in general are rude, aloof and the hotel is filthy!! This hotel appears to cater to tour groups and so are always busy!! The 2 guests lifts for the hotel are totally inadequate. I will never stay in this hotel again. There are far better hotels in Pattaya so book elsewhere!! I could go on and on about how bad this hotel is but I have checked out and just want to forget about the experience. If you want welcoming and friendly staff to engage with you in a welcoming manner then book elsewhere!!

2nd stay. Still amazing”
Kids loved the pool, gym and volleyball. Staff would round the boys up to play chess, volleyball and water basket ball. Breakfast is simply amazing, so spoilt for choice. Bed is super comfortable. Upgraded room by manager as gift for return guess. So relaxing. Staff made our stay truly wonderful. We will be back

Real five star”
real five star hotel... everything on a other level... except maybe wifi in my room. Great pool, great location, great staff, great breakfast, but of course it comes at a higher price than other good hotels...
good location, good breakfast but below our expectations.”
+ breakfast + location + quite room (good for sleep) + good size room and balcony + nice free fruit plate in room on arrival. + spacious and clean bathroom & toilet. - Unnecessary security checks at entrance each time. - expensive to eat&drink in hotel (AUD4 for a bottle of water? come on!!) - 1 elevator for big hotel not enough. - long walking distances in hotel - only 1 big pool. - welcome drink doesn't deserve to drink. - old hotel (but well maintaned) - $25 for airport transfers too expensive because very close to airport. Some other nearby hotels offer free airport transfers. - only 1 room keycard for each room not enough. (it's challenging when you go to pool or outside seperately. You have to wait the other person who has the keycard or ask reception to open the door)
Very good facilities, clean pool, location next to discovery mall. Many eating and shopping areas nearby. As we had an early flight they provide u with break fast box however there's ham in the sandwich. Should have consider that for Muslim patrons. Other than that hotel was fine. Tight security too.
Nice Oasis in the Middle of Busy Kuta Streets.”
The resort is big, spacious filled with amazing landscpes and large size pools. The room has a decent size, a little old and the AC was cool. The Hotel has a beach access but I would recommend to swim, see it for yourself. Breakfast gets really busy over the weekend. The choices are endless but the taste is average. There are two restaurant and we had dinner at the Italian and it was really good. We enjoyed our stay. There's a shopping Mall located just next to the Hotel and plenty of taxi outside. Tips: Ask them to empty the minibar so you won't have to put money down for deposit and avoid Hotel's taxi fee by getting the taxi outside youself.
Beautiful hotel excellent value with Agoda They give the best price ”
However if you book with Agoda at there reduced rate I believe you get the worst rooms unfortunately We have stayed at Discovery at least 25 times over the last 20 years and that didn't seem to mean anything as we brought our daughter and her family they had a little baby 1 year old with them our granddaughter and they needed a bath for the baby and on the same floor as us as we could help with the baby if needed However even though the hotel was only half full they said they never had a room with a bath available they were given a room with a shower at the very end of the hotel block Only if we upgraded could they have a room change We stayed there 3 weeks previous and had a bath in our room But our room this time which also only had a shower or we would have given them our room) it spoilt their stay as the baby was use to a bath twice a day this resulted in a sore bottom poor baby I believe they wouldn't swap rooms Because we booked with Agoda at the special rate
Need to be renewed”
we arrived at 6 pm and our extra bed was not in the room even the towels,shampoo,toothbrushes etc... we got them in the second dsy .The remote of the Tv not working very good .The breakfast was good a lot of varieties and the good thing that you have a mall next to the hotel.The swimming pool very nice but women toilet of the restaurant in a very bad condition one sink not working and the other sink is blocked..The last thing very ugly and dirty beach

A good decision.”
The services and hospitality was awesome. The buffet breakfast had something for a pure vegetarian family. The location and the pool and location was cool. Outside the hotel within 200-400 meters there are lot of good food outlets for Indian vegetatian. Rightly placed for a happy holiday
The hotel grounds are very beautiful. The restaurants and pool are excellent. The staff were very helpful. We loved the location, it was close to lots of amenities and restaurants. We would stay again.
