The staff here were very friendly, almost too much.
When we first checked in they had none of the standard rooms in twin share so we were upgraded however as the days went on we found that the sliding door was stiff and had fallen off its runners.
We didnt complain about it as we were hardly in the room anyway. It was a staff member who was giving us fresh towels that noticed the struggle and addressed it with the maintenance team. They came up and tried fixing it whithout distrubing us too much to then change our room for one two doors down. This was slightly annoying as we only had one more night there and weren't in the mood to pack everything up.
We then had issues with the keys and safe when we first moved into this replacement room.
As I said its not a major issue but the only complaint I could make.

When the construction appeared to be done we returned to the burre for an afternoon siesta, some packing preparation and happy hour on the deck before our dinner. We decided to have the duck which had to be ordered ...
... Well looked after gardens are packed with picnicking locals, and down at the shore, you can look through the tide pools. These were so much deeper and cleaner than in the UK, and we saw some cool striped fish in one.
It was a beautiful spot, but perhaps a little too touristy for us. I really think that we just went at the wrong time of day, though, as sunrise or sunset would have been wonderful.
On our way back to Ubud after a long day, our driver ...
... in the background, then hear some bloke going 'please, please, please boss let me stay' about twenty times, then more shouting. It gets a bit ridiculous at times with him going 'ple ple ple please let me stay'. I would have kicked him out he is bloody annoying. It was a bit like sat outside the headmasters office at school or on the naughty step!! We sit there for quite awhile, there's a tv on the wall with some rubbish on in Indonesian but we are still get drawn to ...
