Reviewed 1 October 2014 via mobile

Pretty helpful staff at the hotel.
The hotel offered noumerous activitys (except surfing).

That was the Good part..

smelly reception. (It Smelled of feces). Creepy receptionist.
The hotel seems to have seen its glory days.
Extremely run-down rooms and blood stains on the mosquito nets and on the sheets and towels.
The water stoped working during the evening. The bathroom reminded us of a dirty old prisonshower. The minibar was rusty. We heard so much noice from outside the room at night.

The food was just ok. Bland and small portions. We recommend eating somewere else at the mushroom bay. We recommend the Hai restaurant.
The beach was nice but rude tourists use it as a trashbin. And its like a buss station of boats.

During the days many daytime tourists visit the beach but at night this is like a real ghost town. No people at all which we found nice but just for ONE night!

Stayed: September 2014, travelled as a couple

We stayed 4 nights in bungalow n. 1 (called 1 bedroom villa), which was not far from reception area but still not close to the 2 pools so we couldn’t hear the loud noise of the crowd of day-trippers (chinese?) coming every day and having lunch there.
The open bathroom was very nice and apparently quite new, the bed was super-comfortable with good mattress and pillows and good-quality sheets, but … that’s all!!
The wardrobe was old and dirty, no safety box, useless mosquito-net on the bed with big holes, moisture stains on walls, a lot of dust on the headboard of the bed, good air-con but it’s a pity that the door had blind on the bottom without screen; there was only a few water in the basin so we called maintenance but my husband had to fix it because they couldn’t. No complimentary water at all. Wi-fi was good. They provide beach towels but they didn’t seem clean.
Breakfast was distressing: we had scramble eggs with 2 microscopic slices of beef bacon and ham (you couldn’t tell the difference!) + 1 slice of bread with butter or banana pancake and 1 small glass of packaged juice (but we never found good fresh juices on NL, always with a lot of water, and this is rather weird as fruit in shops is less expensive than in Bali) + tea/coffee.
When we arrived we met the only kind person of all the staff, Putu at the reception: the girl serving breakfast was extremely impolite with people not ordering and paying for extras; staff seldom greeted guests. Everyone there seemed more inclined to take care of day-trippers.
Location is nice, on Mushroom Bay, with 2 umbrellas and some beanbags directly on the beach.
You have to rent a motorbike if you want to visit the island: we rented one directly from them for 70.000IDR/day including petrol. Pay a lot of attention to the extremely bed roads full of potholes!
We definitely not recommend this place!

I had amazing time during my stay in Tanis Villa.
Its located on the beach of Mushroom Bay makes it perfect since you dont need to make another effort and take your time from the harbour of Mushroom Bay to your accommodation
I stayed in few different types of room. But all of them were great. They were big, comfortable bed, very nice AC and great hot water shower, last but not least they do have MiniBar!
Everything about Tanis Villa's rooms were great except one, TV-DVD which they put on the wall 2.5 meters away from the floor, it wasnt comfortable at all ever since the tv was 21" LCD TV. It'll be better if they put them somewhere else in the room since they do have the space.
Internet mostly work only in the restaurant, pool area and lobby. Barely open my email in my room.
Food was good for the price they have. And most important thing is the staffs were very friendly and they work as proffesional hotel attendant. This was beyond the expectation when you're staying in a small island.

Our room was up the top of an extremely steep high hill, and although the gardens are lovely, it was one hell of an effort to get our bags up there. The room was pretty grotty, especially the bathroom, with lots of ants, and the windows don't close so mozzies get in. The towels were not changed in the 4 days we were there, and our shower only had scalding water come out. We got burnt a couple of times before deciding on a simple wash at the hand basin would do. The wifi didn't work while we were there and had to go to other hotels/restaurants for wifi.
When you look on the map, mushroom bay looks just around the corner from the main area of Lembongan, junguwatu, but in reality, it's about a 25 min drive on very bad roads.
However, the hotel opened up onto the most beautiful bay of water, and they have beanbags and umbrellas on the sand for guests. There is no one selling you anything and it is quiet and very peaceful. We went on a snorkelling trip from our hotel which cost $25 AUD for 2 of us and had an amazing experience. They did make our bed daily and it was comfortable and the aircon worked. I booked this hotel on Agoda and paid about $40 per night including breakfast for 2 people in twin share.
So if you're after a bargain, and not too fussy about comfort, and want some peace and quiet, you'll find it here!

Room Tip: Hotel says free wifi, but it doesn't work most of the time. Some rooms are up a very steep hill...

After being double booked at a much nicer location down the beach- we were downgraded to this. Staff very unhelpful, bfast "included" not very appetising, loud music around the pool that know one was swimming in so the sence of paradise was lost, toilet didnt work, cold shower. Would not recommend this place unless your on a budget. Seriously disappointed with our stay here.
