Great little place but we came at the worse possible time weather-wise. Hot, very hot and humid. I've been to Bali for more than a dozen times and it was by far the muggiest experience I've ever had. Because of this we weren't able to enjoy the room as much as we'd like.
The first negative was the local critters - woke up one night to find a mouse rummaging through a pile of our snack food which had to go in the bin. It also ate our soap. Quickly sorted by storing the food in the fridge although one night I forgot to throw a chocolate wrapper in the bin and had it sitting on the bed-side table. Woke up that night to a pair of eyes staring at me.
Second negative was the location - the biggest selling point is where it is located, but it is also a bad thing. Very, very quiet. There were no close-by restaurants or shops so there was a bit of a trek to the main Lovina strip. Wouldn't have been an issue if it were any other time of the year but as it was particularly horrid, it became a chore due to the heat.
Overall, I loved the place. The staff were very friendly and the location is extremely tranquil. Perfect if you simply want to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. If I were to change anything about the place, I'd improve the air-conditioning for those extra hot days, strike up a home-delivery deal with local restaurants to alleviate the need to leave the house at night and install WiFi for those who needed contact with the rest of the world.
Oh, and I'd figure out some better pest-control.
