Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our stay at the Surf Motel was way worse than expected initially. Although everything looked appealing in the pictures, the reality fell short, especially when it came to the room size. Contrary to the spacious appearance in the photos, the rooms were significantly smaller in person. To make matters worse, the hotel's proximity to ongoing construction work meant enduring incessant noise throughout the day and morning, which was far from ideal in the tranquil setting of Bali. Adding to our disappointment, the quality of the food was underwhelming. Paying approximately 55k for a Caprese salad, we were dismayed to receive a meager portion consisting of half a mozzarella and tomato, accompanied by a small serving of salad and a scant amount of guacamole. The picture speaks volumes. Furthermore, when we ordered a granola bowl, we were astonished by the overwhelming quantity of granola in comparison to the meager amount of yogurt provided. When we attempted to address this issue with the staff and requested additional yogurt, they seemed utterly clueless. To compound our dissatisfaction, the bathroom was constructed in an extremely flawed manner. Every time we took a shower, the water would flood the entire bathroom floor, leaving us with a perpetually wet and uncomfortable environment. Overall, our experience at the Surf Motel was highly disappointing, a far cry from what we had initially anticipated. We wholeheartedly advise future tourists to steer clear of this establishment.

Surf Motel in Canggu is the perfect location for access to Echo beach. Fellow surfers, this is the place for you! Not only is the location great but the staff here are excellent - they will go above and beyond to provide amazing service. In addition, the rooms themselves are spacious and clean with big comfortable beds. The hotel lobby and 2 pools (one by the cafe and one on the rooftop) are so beautiful and perfect for chilling out in true Bali fashion. I couldn't recommend this hotel enough if you are looking for a stay in Canggu / a stay with surf access! Not to mention their iced coffee was one of the best i've had in Bali :)

The hotel is perfectly located with a short walk to the beach and the many coffee shops on the next road. Unfortunately the room we booked was not given on check in and ended up in a small room (bed against the wall) and bathroom had a bad smell of damp. Staff on front desk said we could change the following day. Would recommend based on location, but communication is very poor and often not confirmed by management before offered to customers on WhatsApp. They even told us our room was booked by another guest and asked us to leave when booking.com contacted them to resolve.

I loved how close this hotel is to all the hustle and bustle of Canggu, the rooftop bar is such an amazing touch especially when you get sick of the beach and sand, it’s got such a chilled vibe and the staff here at the bar and In reception easily go above and beyond to help you - we will definitely be staying again and would recommend for any couples looking for somewhere close enough to the airport to start or end your travels in Bali! Thanks again team xxx

Great views at the rooftop pool. Basic rooms but very comfortable. Barry, the bartender is an absolute champion. You won't find a more hospitable host in bali. Makes you feel welcome and more than just a guest. Breakfast is well worth it, with packages including Juice and Coffee for less than 100k. Great location and well worth the $60 price tag per night. Will be back!

Awesome modern hotel, clean, cool (temperature) and well appointed. Great location so close to Echo beach, don’t let the odd gravel alley approach put you off. The rooftop pool and bar was awesome! It really caught the breeze off the ocean which was an absolute saving grace in the scorching heat of Canggu. The outdoor beds were perfect and had both shade and sun options. The service at the bar was always personable. Shout out to Barry (he will tell you like strawBerry so I don’t know how he spells it). The room was awesome, linens were so comfortable. The little balcony was just enough to dry clothes if you are doing the backpacker quick switch. And the green space right below it was also beautiful. A great furniture system to lay out my baggage so I could keep everything organized. The bathroom was so modern and gorgeous. The floor did stay wet but the staff were super on top of it keeping a little bath mat just outside the door. Also probably contributed that I was showering at least 3 times a day!

We stayed in Canggu for 3 nights at the start of a 2 week trip around Bali. The hotel was fine, I've given 4 stars mainly for location as it really was a 5 minute walk down to the beach. Rooms were fine, clean and large, bed was comfy and wifi was good. They don't have mosquito nets and our window had a gap so we got quite a few bites. There was a lot of noise from the nearby club on Saturday but they provide earplugs so it didn't bother us too much. One thing we appreciated was the provision of free drinking water drums on each floor to help reduce plastic use. Sadly I can't comment on the rooftop pool as we received an email 4 days before we arrived (when free cancellation had expired) telling us the pool would be closed for maintainence which was a real shame as after 18hrs of travel we were looking forward to enjoying a swim. They do have a ground floor pool but it's v small with only 2 beds that are in the shade by around 3. If you're looking for a base only, from which you can walk to the beach, bars and restaurants then it's a good choice.

Really nice modern hotel. The staff were amazing, allowed me to check-in at 4am. Also, they have organised transportation to the other hotels I’m staying in, in Bali. Pools fantastic and it’s only a short walk to the beach.

Clean, friendly and helpful. Very contemporary decor and great location to the beach. Not a bad word to say about this place only we stayed a floor below the rooptop pool/bar and the could near the music until quite late. Would definitely stay here again
