    Breakfast could be more generous with the portions and offer more choices. It did not feel very hygienic to use the toiletries (shampoo etc) as the bottles can easily be contaminated.

    A spectacular property with an amazing atmosphere. Jordi the General Manager and his staff do an amazing job looking after the needs of their guests. The food is superb and the service is first class. Guests should also use the hotel as a base to explore this wonderful area of East Bali, a secret amongst locals.

    I did not like the taste of their coffee. Cappuccino was too watery and tasteless. Espresso not that great either. Maybe change the coffee blend... The AC could not be turned lower than 22 C which is too warm at night for many people including myself. Was told this was the lowest...

    A great weekend getaway. Wonderful property. They have a new seafront bar which is really nice. Great place to have a quiet dinner apart from the main restaurant. The grounds and gardens are kept immaculately and the pool is bliss.

    I honestly can't think of a thing!

    The choice of a cafe type meal in the bar by the sea; or a lovely full menu meal in the restaurant. I loved the friendliness of the staff. The swimming pool was huge, which we loved. The ocean in the area of the Alila was much cleaner than in many of the other tourist areas. And Hatmawan, the Leisure Director organised things for us to do that made the trip above and beyond our expectations.

    The location is several kilometres from Candidasa which was very quiet (due to the volcano) and although the hotel runs a shuttle service there was not much to see or do in the immediate area of the hotel. We are regular long time visitors to Bali and like to walk and explore the surrounding area however the very busy main road was a concern....fast cars, motorcycles and trucks and no pavement so that was no good. The hotel is ocean front ( not beachfront) and walking on the beach was no good either.

    We had a ground floor room overlooking the garden and pool. It was peaceful and pleasant with a large seating area - table and 2 chairs and a soft cushioned seat. The hotel is built in the older traditional style and although the rooms may seem to be dated (compared to new "smart" hotels" the bed was very comfortable, the shower worked well with plenty of hot water and good pressure. There was ground coffee on the hospitality tray and we were given plenty of bottled water. The pool was lovely and we enjoyed the afternoon tea and cakes. The pool attendants provided cold water drinks regularly and th extra long pool towels were soft. Breakfast was good with a different selection of fresh juice each morning, croissants, cakes and pastries were very nice; staff were so friendly and remembered our names. We ate in the restaurant one evening and enjoyed the Balinese suckling pig and buffet however the prices were high so we didn't eat there again.

    peaceful stay; very relaxed, great staff and perhaps just a little bland
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • Superior Room with Free Daily Activity
    • Stayed 6 nights

    I personally find the place a little bland. The pool is nice (chlorine) and big and there are arm chairs all around. the service is excellent - so all that works. there is a big central space and little privacy from your bedroom - as people have to walk past to get places. And whilst there is a small balcony, its really exposed. Also - the rooms don't have a curtain - its either sliding glass door or wooden sliding doors. No scope for air flow with light coming through

    the food was really delicious ... the breakfasts are worth coming for. We ate 2 dinners there - and chose to eat at more vibrant places on the other nights. The desserts, juices are excellent. Very sedate ?romantic atmosphere in the evening. Also enjoyed movies shown outside on 2 nights - comfortable cushions set up on the lawn, Very enjoyable complementary is afternoon tea - between 3 - 5pm. delicious herbal teas and Balinese sweets were yummy and welcome. also complementary is tai chi 3 times/week amazing staff; great facilities; great prices (high) for every activity. If you're on a budget - you can arrange every activity outside of the hotel for roughly a tenth the cost

    We came to Alila Manggis about 4 years ago, the Seasalt food was delicious, fabulous. But this time we were very disappointed. The main reason we returned to the same resort was the food. We could find no reason for the price increase, the room was exactly the same, with ordinary food.

We appreciated the free dive session in the pool on the Monday which helped us regain confidence to do a SCUBA dive. The mountain to the sea bike ride was fantastic.

    Whereas the wifi worked well and was available everywhere, it did have an annoying setting that terminated the IP lease after 20 minutes, so that you constantly have to log in again. The price of food and drinks were up-market in comparison to what we had been paying elsewhere in Bali, so just bear it in mind if you want to stay at the hotel non-stop. It's possible to eat out (even with pick-up service) but there aren't too many alternatives in the area. If the prices had been less European/Australian we would never had left the grounds. Still, we were never disappointed when we ate at the hotel.

    All the staff were exceedingly helpful and friendly right from the start. The hotel's grounds are stunning and the pool wonderful. The food at the restaurant was excellent. Free shuttle service to Candidasa was great too. The upgrade to get a balcony with a view was worth it. The staff fit a mosquito net to the balcony sofa for free. Room was always discretely made up and staff always topped us up with enough free bottled water.

    There are no other restaurants nearby. There is a shuttle service to Candidasa but it was a bit underwhelming. Some floor surfaces, especially in the bathroom were quite worn. Apparently the place was built in the nineties.

    Fantastic restaurant serving exceptional food. Every meal was a treat. I wish I would have done the cooking class. Architecture has a local touch and feels original. The resort is placed in a picturesque remote setting. It is very peaceful and has good energy. Very comfortable beds and all rooms face the sea and the pool.

    Staff were consistently trying to sell massively over price excursions. Service in restaurant was hit and miss, reasonable one day and pathetically slow the next (the trainees were by far their best staff) Staff lost our bags by giving them to another bus on check out - management let the poor "bell boy" take the blame before eventually coming with a resolution. Noise from air con units outside front door of room makes for an uncomfortable nights sleep. Very little visibly deterrent for Mosquitos and other pests.

    We had a very uncomfortable night because the bedding was far too hot for the air conditioning. There was no sheet to allow us to lightly cover ourselves. Dump the feather doonas, I say, and replace them with a sheet and cotton throw over.

    There is no gym, but daily yoga or tai chi were on offer near the pool as was the option to hire bikes and go cycling in and amongst the nearby paddy fields.

    I arrived after an incredibly long journey from the UK; the staff were incredibly attentive and were absolute to ensure our stay was the best it could be. They upgraded us without charge. Food was sensational, from a delicious choice at breakfast to a very tasty afternoon tea served by the pool (we had at least two portions each!) and the dinner was sublime, particularly the pork belly!

    The swimming pool is really great, swimming in the middle of a coconut garden. And the room all view to the ocean. Great food, very tasty!
