After staying in budget accommodation for most of our trip, Flashbacks was a little slice of heaven. The property is small, and the entrance is easy to miss, but it was a great place to stay.
Where do I begin my rant on how great this place is?? The Porch Café out the front does great food for a taste of home (for us Aussies), and a terrific breakfast. However the breakfast included in the accommodation is basic. (Toast, tea/coffee and fruit.)
The staff here were lovely. We were traveling in a group of couples, with some couples staying at other accommodation and the staff were always helpful and lovely to us all. The rooms were great, lovely and clean, and the price is great. The beach is close, however a little hard to get to because of the beachside resorts. However I think there is normally a road to access the beach, but it was closed for repairs during our stay. There is a small pool at Flashbacks, which was clean and a good temp.
Some small areas for improvement that may bother some visitors; The hot water runs out quickly and the taps are a little tricky. When I say quickly, there was enough hot water for me to wash my long hair, but no hot water left for my partner. We stayed in room one, which could be a little noisy. However Sanur quietens early at night so it wasn’t a big enough issue to keep you up all night. My Sister and her partner stayed in one of the rooms towards the back of the property and according to them there were no noise issues, so if you decide to stay maybe request a room towards the back of the property if noise bothers you.
All in all a lovely place to stay and I would visit again.
