We had been planning our family holiday for 12 months so there were high expectations and hopes pending our arrival. Often these review are quite long so I will try and keep it short....
Positive: Stunning gardens and manicured lawns
Fabulous location right on the beach
Very friendly staff who interacted beautifully with our children
Great service around the bar
PLENTY of activities and things to do (if you know when they are on, see below)
Amazing Kids Club (although there is no food readily available in the resort between
5:00pm and 7:00pm...usually when most kids are hungry)
Fresh Fruit and Dessert selections AH-MAZING
Very accepting of children in all areas of resort (except the quiet pool)
If you "judge a book by its cover" you will think you have arrived to a hotel in the back streets of Kuta. "CLUB MED" sign out the front is old and dated, entrance is black/grey tired looking tiles.
On arrival we were not given ANY information about any of the activities or when they were run, it wasn't until my family came to visit for the day that they were given a pamphlet outlining everything (wouldn't this be the first thing you showed your customers?)
Main pool is quite shallow (no deeper than 1.4m) not great for hanging out in, in my opinion and is possibly why it gets quite warm in the afternoon.
Cocktails are not very alcoholic, if it wasn't for the sweetness of them you could probably drink them all day and not be affected.
I expected a greater range of Indonesian food, it is only a small section in the main dining area, other food selections are Japanese, Chinese, Korean and fried food. (all I wanted was Nasi Goreng!!)
Tables were quite dirty in Agung Restaurant, I know they are busy but it would be nice it they wiped the down after each use and by wipe down I mean pick up the place mats (maybe even change them once in a while) and wipe up all the crap that has soaked through it and sits underneath it, like milk!
Biggest annoyance, not being able to feed the kids until 7:15, if your kids are older obviously this would be OK but ours are 3 and 5 and usually in bed by 7:30 and hungry at 5.
Would I return? Can't answer that one until we try another all inclusive resort and can compare...stay tuned.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At your feet lie clear waters and fine sand beaches. The Village of Bali is one of Club Med(R)'s most beautiful, an Indian Ocean pearl set in the Sunda archipelago. Beneath the coconut palms, by pools of lotus and water lilies, the bungalows with their sweeping roofs take their inspiration from Balinese architecture. A spirit of serenity wafts over Bali, and you can discover a way of celebrating life that is unique. Bali promises moments of grace for young and old, families and honeymooners too. ... more less
