Right on the beach with private beach area, beautiful clear waters and a lovely big pool too. The hotel is big, but we never struggled to get a sunbed or to float on the big pool cushions, never had to wait for a drink or a table. The rooms are spacious, modern and clean. Front of house staff are helpful and polite. Good gym with plenty of cardio and weights equipment. It is quite pricey if you are paying as you go, we upgraded to all inclusive for one day of our four day stay (about £50 each), I would recommend booking all inclusive for the duration. All the beaches are private so they are clean, but you are limited to your area. Taxis are more expensive here, but it's not far from jimbaran bay for a sunset dinner on the beach (20 mins), or from uluwatu temple (40mins). Definitely venture out of the hotel for spa treaments and laundry as they are less than half the price of what you'll pay at the hotel (60min massage @100000rp / £5 ISH at independent spa Vs 300000rpp+ / £15+ at hotel spa and 30000rp / £3ish per kg of laundry outside Vs the same for 1 t-shirt in the hotel). Can't recommend Mr Bob for an amazing meal at a great price too, just up the road. We really enjoyed our stay at Sol Beach.
