Bali Mandira is a very well known hotel and has a great reputation, but for the price I was expecting more of a wow factor.
The hotel itself I almost can't fault, excellent staff, service and location if you want to be on the beach and central (near Kuta, not in it!). Amazing Buffett breakfast and free cocktails in the afternoon. We were in a cottage which are all walled, so don't expect a view, great If you want privacy and no view, but I prefer a beach view if I'm staying on a beach. I asssume the high rise accom has beach views but don't quote me on it!
I've stayed in quite a few places in Bali and around the island and I've been more than happy with other places with less stars and less than half the price of Mandira.
If you are looking for a beach holiday, keep looking! There are some amazing beaches in Indonesia and while this one is fine for a morning walk or run (flat sand) there are other beaches sooo much better!
Basically you can find the same great service at a better beach for considerably less if they are factors in choosing your holiday
A very excellent hotel with its design and qualified services. Good for young couples. Well recommended.
