          The hotel is perfectly located just off the beach. It is only a short walk to shops and restaurants. You are treated to a beautiful view of the bay and islands as you swim in the hotel pool. Rooms are very clean. The staff are extremely accommodating and friendly. They happily upgraded my room to a better one at no extra cost. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there.

          Only just surviving”

          Half the rooms and one swimming pool are closed and in a state of decay, the empty swimming pool has a half meter of stagnant water and poses a real safety hazard. The staff do their best but there would seem to be no budget for repairs and maintenance is not what it could be. The beach front location is very pleasant and the breakfast, while limited is well prepared and presented in a nice covered beach front area. Its sad to see this place slowly slide into disrepair. The rooms are large but quite old with all fixtures and fittings being quite dated.

          Old fashioned hotel with a breathtaking view”

          The location - the view from the pool - the staff

          An old fashioned hotel which would have been stunning when it first opened 27 years ago. Needs a bit of TLC but is fine if you don't expect 5* luxury. The pool area and where you have breakfast has probably the bet views you will get anywhere,across the Lombok straight to Nusa Penida. There are some superb restaurants a short walk from the hotel also. It really is a peaceful paradise, as long as you go with an open mind and accept it for what it is, a 3 star old Balinese hotel.

          location, nice pool, friendly staff

          The location is very convenient for the temple that we wish to visit. We check in early but there is no problem with that as the hotel is very quiet. The staffs are very friendly and eager to assist in any way. The room is large but i will say that it is old and running down. Most rooms are not occupied for ages, the handle is rusted. We thought the tv is not working but it's only a problem of the plug. Nothing great about it as its only have local channels. There is an empty minibar but no telephone, no room service, no water heater. We spent more time in veranda when we're in the room. The hot water is great though. Breakfast is limited but tasty. The pool is an extra plus with a green, tidy garden. Restaurants and shopping areas are walking distance. It is not so bad if you just stay for a few days and spend most of your time sightseeing, and use the room as just a place to rest your head.

          Nothing, dirty, bad service.

          I booked this months before my stay in Bali, online it looks good.... Unfortunately this place is so run down/dirty there is no way I could recommend it. It looks like its closing down! We booked double rooms & got single beds. They told us they were full but I'm sure there were probably only about 20 people max staying here. Thank goodness this was only a 1 night stay before heading to Lombok.

          Only just surviving”

          Half the rooms and one swimming pool are closed and in a state of decay, the empty swimming pool has a half meter of stagnant water and poses a real safety hazard. The staff do their best but there would seem to be no budget for repairs and maintenance is not what it could be. The beach front location is very pleasant and the breakfast, while limited is well prepared and presented in a nice covered beach front area. Its sad to see this place slowly slide into disrepair. The rooms are large but quite old with all fixtures and fittings being quite dated.

          Old fashioned hotel with a breathtaking view”

          The location - the view from the pool - the staff

          An old fashioned hotel which would have been stunning when it first opened 27 years ago. Needs a bit of TLC but is fine if you don't expect 5* luxury. The pool area and where you have breakfast has probably the bet views you will get anywhere,across the Lombok straight to Nusa Penida. There are some superb restaurants a short walk from the hotel also. It really is a peaceful paradise, as long as you go with an open mind and accept it for what it is, a 3 star old Balinese hotel.

          We stay in the two superior rooms that are very dirty and uncomfortable. This hotel is very old and there are many areas under maintenance and construction. The pool is very nice that you can see the ocean. Also, breakfast is very simple.

          location, nice pool, friendly staff

          The location is very convenient for the temple that we wish to visit. We check in early but there is no problem with that as the hotel is very quiet. The staffs are very friendly and eager to assist in any way. The room is large but i will say that it is old and running down. Most rooms are not occupied for ages, the handle is rusted. We thought the tv is not working but it's only a problem of the plug. Nothing great about it as its only have local channels. There is an empty minibar but no telephone, no room service, no water heater. We spent more time in veranda when we're in the room. The hot water is great though. Breakfast is limited but tasty. The pool is an extra plus with a green, tidy garden. Restaurants and shopping areas are walking distance. It is not so bad if you just stay for a few days and spend most of your time sightseeing, and use the room as just a place to rest your head.

          the photos of the rishi on the internet looked lovely so we were grossly mislead as to the condition of the hotel. in its day i'm sure it was lovely but well overdue for renovations. staff friendly but language was difficult at times.

          Terrible, run down!”

          Nothing, dirty, bad service.

          I booked this months before my stay in Bali, online it looks good.... Unfortunately this place is so run down/dirty there is no way I could recommend it. It looks like its closing down! We booked double rooms & got single beds. They told us they were full but I'm sure there were probably only about 20 people max staying here. Thank goodness this was only a 1 night stay before heading to Lombok.

          Close to the sea but no beach to go on :( No best 3 thing I'm afraid

          Comfortable with friendly staff however for this price there are much nicer and cleaner hotels nearby to stay in. The whole place was run down and desperately needed some paint and DIY. I put skiing as the recommended candidates for this hotel as you must fill in that field however I recommend this hotel to no one i'm afraid.

          There are none

          Needs totally Overhauling of the Resort. The Cabinets doors only one hinge and on complain the staff said we should use only the other side of cabinet with the good door. Toilet flashing continues run, One pool out of order and the other Pool Green full of green alga. The strip of white Sand beach in front of Hotel is gone, covered by tons of collapsed concrete of sea wave protection wall. To clean that mass up the owner must make a huge budget free. Best was the Nasi Goreng for Breakfast.
