We booked a room in the villa and was told that there was nothing available, but we could have the "town view annex" for $5 less. I thought that this place can't be far away from the main villa, but boy was I wrong. We arrived in the evening and at the airport there was a huge number of drivers with placards with the names of people they were picking up. I went backwards and forwards 4 times before I realised my name wasn't there. I had to ring the driver, only to find that he was waiting just beyond the exit. When we got to the "annex" we were greeted and was told that they would take us to the main villa at 8am the next morning for breakfast. We were up early, so thought we'd go looking for it after all the other reviewers complained about roosters crowing all day. Nobody in the area knew where Villa Angelo was, and yes we could find the roosters, but not the villa. We waited for our guy to turn up... It never happened. He also promised us a map which never happened. Luckily another guest also staying in the annex had gone through exactly what we had 24 hours ago, and kindly walked us to the main villa. It is quite a walk and we would never have found it on our own.
As others have recently said, the staff are uninterested. On our first morning we were asked what would we like for breakfast, and we fumbled our way through that. On the second day we were presented with a menu: much easier.
Staying in the annex we couldn't hear the roosters so we got good sleep, but they went all day long when we went to the main villa. When we go to the main villa, there were old towels lying around, drinks and plates not taken away after people have finished, ashtrays full of cigarette butts, etc.
At the annex the water pressure was surging, so you couldn't get a good continuous flow of water and that included the wash basin, toilet, and shower.
This place was the most expensive of all the 4 places we stayed at in Bali. I was not going to write this review as I like to be positive, not negative but since the other guests we met there complained and gave this place one star I felt it justified to add this review.
