I stayed with my wife 8 nights in Bali on March. We decided to stay in Holiday Inn Resort Bali Benoa, due its reasonable pricing, good location and good rate (stay longer pay less). Our main purpose
was to relax and stay on the hotel beach whole vacation. We did succeeded in this very well.
Hotel itself is in good condition. The hotel grounds and public areas are in good shape and well maintained. Beach is clean and it has enough space to lay under the sun whole day.
Only negative this was not the hotel beach but the unattended beaches around the hotel. As soon as we left the hotel maintained beach, there were trash and dirt everywhere. This does not give a nice image about the island of gods. Too bad though...
We booked a king room with sea view. It was not the cheapest room, but we decided to get better room due our long stay. For our surprise, we were upgraded to sea view suite. The room was spacious, clean and just wonderful. A very, very pleasant surprise and the great room made our stay even better.
We ate all our meals in the hotel. This was good solution for us. The rate included the breakfast and gave discount from other foods. Food was good, every day, including the breakfast. Food and drinks were decent priced.
Hotel staff was always smiling and very polite. Everyone were helpful and sorted out all questions that we had during the stay.
We sure had a relaxing vacation, so thanks for the whole Bali Benoa team. Keep up the good work! [Less]
