We stayed for 7 nights in a standard beach cottage mainly for the purpose of accessing the close by dive sites. The cottages are cleaned daily, well maintained and for a budget, very nice indeed. We were close to the sea which was lovely to hear at night and in the morning. Restaurant a little out of price range but...

Thank you for your nice review. Candi Dasa has about 9 live music venues at night for tourist entertainment and quite a few good restaurants but as you said not affordable if on tight budget but then there are many warungs ( little local eateries). Cheers Shrley

Much nicer places to stay in Padang bai/Candidasa area. No beach in that area of candi. Room was a bit grubby, quite a few cockroaches around. door didn't close properly. I found Indonesia generally wasn't too bad for roaches (unlike Thailand where they are everywhere.) Staff were a bit clueless and there was a regular guest there who was really...

We had a lovely stay in a seafront cottage. The view is amazing of the Gili's and Nusa Penida and Lombok in the distance. The resort is well maintained with individual cottages scattered around the property. There are ocean front tables for dining or relaxing and a lovely cafe where they serve beautiful home cooked local and western meals. We...

I stayed at Seaside for 5nights but never again. Admittedly I booked the standard cottage but apart from a great view from my patio thats all I can say that is positive. The bathroom smelt and in need of a good bleaching. The bed was uncomfortable. The food was not good either, but it was the owners rudeness toward her...

Thank you for your review. Whilst you stayed for 5 nights you had time to come forth with your complaints and we could have addressed them. I speak to my lovely Balinese staff in Indonesian and yes will take them to task when I am frustrated with what they are doing but I am curious as how you come to...

Had a late check-in, was a problem since the computer was broken, but they helped us to get our reservation. The facilities were ok for a budget cottage. We got a seaside view and good for sunrise. Easy to access. No complain, except no proper ventilation at the bathroom. Hope they'll fix this.

Temple cafe is in a good position with the individual bungalows leading through lovely well kept gardens to the sea. There are table and chairs and sunbeds on a small lawn just by the seawall. A lovely place to sit at any time as the views are great. Some rooms are newer than others and have different layouts and there...

Thank you for your positive review. You are correct that some of the cottages are older as the one you stayed in which is our cheaper simple standard cottage our standard cottages are sea front and larger. When originally built your cottage had a traditional bath room with little space there fore I chose to put a full curtain rather...

Great location, a variety of clean well maintained rooms, very friendly and helpful staff. The meals are top quality and can be served in the restaurant, rooms or seaside tables. Cold beer and an excellent selection of drinks all at reasonable prices. We always stay here when in Candidasa.
