“Misses the mark”
Reviewed 5 August 2011

Looks lovely but it is not.
Staff tried to be helpful, but we got the feeling the owners were too distant from the every day running. We had booked for 2 nights & then an extra night 2 days later, they informed us the extra night was not available when we arrived. This would have been fine but it was all paid for & they were very reluctant to refund our money for the extra day. It took the 2 days and much chasing to get the refund.
Doors on villas don't fit properly, therefore poor security, lots of insects wandering in.
Pool furniture was worn & covered in ants the whole time.
Breakfast was ok except the juice, which was off. The worst we had in 2 weeks in Bali.
Noisy, from the road & the businesses between the road & villas.

So we were reccomended this hotel for the managers at Ellies, who wanted us to explore the island. The hotel itself was very lovely, the scenery was to die for, but the hotel just seamed to lack something. The service wasnt very personal, and they took about 30 minuites to check us in. No one could really tell us anywhere to go, or what to do, so it was great that there was a restaurant in the hotel as we wouldnt have know what we should do or any hotel reccomondations of what would be nice. We went for a stroll but came back to the restaurant!
This restaurant is what makes this place, with a very audrey hepburn breakfast at tiffany's feel to it! the food is outstanding and the service is brilliant, in actual fact the restaurant was a great price and in all honestly the restaurant could be more expensive and the hotel cheaper.
If you go to Canididasa, i highly reccomend this restaurant!

This resort was good but there is not a lot to do in Candi Dasa and there is no decent beach in walking distance .The main road runs right through the middle of everything so it's a pretty noisy spot.
Pros
Lovely big , well equipped bungalows in a beautiful setting around a huge spotless pool.
Handy position in the middle of town
Comfy bed with good quality bed linen
Restaurant is gorgeous and overlooks the Lotus pond which was interesting and relaxing. I believe its the best spot to eat in Candi Dasa - but there is not much competition. The food was fine but not exceptional; so we were a little disappointed.
Prices were reasonable.
Cons
We were the only guests staying there so it lacked atmosphere.
The bungalows are very cheaply built so I imagine in a couple of years they will be very shabby
The shower - a real OH&S issue - it was either cold or boiling hot :(
It would quickly fluctuate between the two and the hot was so dangerously hot that I badly burnt my head while washing my hair. I can't imagine what this would do to a small childs delicate skin !!! so cold showers were the only safe option.
No water in the bathroom at all for several hours
Not an acceptable situation for the tariff charged

Yes it's all true. This is the best place in Candidasa and the hippest place we stayed on Bali. Very good in all departments. Their restaurant is excellent.
Note though... Le Zen don't accept credit cards and expect cash (by transfer) up front sometimes to secure reservations. Kind of old-world, but when you're this good I guess you can get away with it..
