I stayed here in Jan 2011, check in isn't until 2pm - but working in a hotel myself it does not take 7 hours to get a room
Cleaned and ready - making guests wait that long after flying in from Melbourne, Australia via Sydney. The reception and pool area is nice but is deceiving. My room that I stayed in was disgusting, mould in the bathroom, showerhead and old 'you know what' stains in the toilet, I couldn't go in the bathroom without thongs on. The shower curtain had mould all over it. My bed sheets also had blood stains on it. I was 21 when I went and this hotel is definitely for 18 year olds, yes I do like to party sometimes but I have respect for other guests in the hotel vicinity, as the balconies are not private we had a bunch of young teenagers laying outside our room door yelling and screaming as I was trying to nap after my flight and long wait to get a room. Eventually I went out and told the teenagers off and called front desk, nothing was rectified and the group of teenagers kept yelling and screaming. What also shocked me is that they supplied condoms in the room at a price, this instantly made me feel dirty and disgusted and I knew I needed to find another hotel and get out of this one. After telling the hotel of these issues and showing photos of the room/bathroom disgrace I got told the issue will be rectified - the next day nothing was done about it. I had family friends in another hotel and I was able to book a room there for the remainder of my stay in Bali - I checked out of dewi sri and would not be issued a refund. As soon as I got back to Melbourne I contacted my travel insurance on this matter to get my money back and with photos of the state of my room I was received a full refund. I would not recommend staying here unless you are fresh out of high school and are going with a bunch of mates for continuous partying. I have travelled all over America, Thailand, Europe, Vietnam and Australia for business and pleasure and this hotel is by far the worst I have ever experienced.
