Staff great, pool excellent, food very good and great views. Free shuttle into Ubud is a must as there is really nothing near the hotel as far as eating places etc. There is a lot of traffic noise from road below hotel and lots of dogs barking as well. Note there are no TV's in the rooms but there is a library with lots of books. Rooms are large but as with most Bali hotel's bathrooms are grotty and need a good scrub. General maintenance is not a high priority. Make sure you bring mosquito repellent. Highly recommend the village tour and the cooking class in the village.
