Booking.com guest review guidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.
By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options may be available (by type of traveller, by score, etc...).

눉No beach access and a bit confusing to arrive to. Room was slightly dated, but still very beautiful.
눇The staff and service were great. I booked the room at 19:00 on the day I was arriving, and so the room was not ready. However, the staff put every single person available to prepare the room as quickly as possible. The scooter we requested to rent and the helmets they provided were top quality.

눉Not easy access to the villa hotel, narrow street around the hotel, missing of bathtub in the bathroom, a lot of trees in the villa easily attracting mosquitoes and lizard, lots of mosquitoes, the water of swimming pool haven’t been replaced before I do the room check-in and they don’t replace it at all in general!! A suggestion to the management to renovate the bathroom and bring it to the best. With all of this negative points listed above, I really like the villa and I would love to visit the same hotel in future hoping to see it in better condition.
눇Staff, service, location (not really better than others) due to narrow roads and become easily crowded by only two cars coming opposite to each other!, private pool, breakfast, free internet.

눉The only slight criticism was that the two dinners we had were a bit disappointing. Not awful, but nothing special, especially in comparison to the high standard of the breakfasts.
눇We love The Elysian. We stayed there in August 2015 and enjoyed it so much, decided to stay again in 2016. It's small and intimate but has everything you need. The staff who work there are simply amazing. They go above and beyond to meet your needs and it's always done with a smile. Delightful staff and we felt we farewelled family at the end of our 7 night stay. The breakfasts were as delicious as last year, and you are spoilt for choices of fresh, wholesome breakfast items. The location is ideal. A short walk to Seminyak beach and close to many great restaurants, bars and shopping. The villa is beautiful. Love the fold back opening windows, day beds and the setting of the private pool, which is very big. Cleanliness spot on, and service faultless. The complimentary massage also an added bonus. Bliss! Staff members Dewi, Sri and Susie were amazing and we very much enjoyed meeting them and exchanging stories about family and life. Thank you for another fantastic stay. We would definitely return for a stay at the wonderful Elysian.

눇Location: very central and close to everything (beach, restaurants, KuDaTe beach club), but also very quiet. Yes, you have to walk a bit, but the hotel offers free transport if the van is available and bikes. Staff: extremely friendly and attentive; made our vacation very special; even prepared a little birthday cake for my husband and sang Happy Birthday because they had seen the date in his passport Breakfast: very good; you can choose whatever you like from a variety of dishes Villas and rest of hotel: it looks exactly like in the pictures; small private pool perfect for cooling off after a day at the beach; separate bedroom, living room / kitchenette and bathroom is very comfortable. Some corners of the villa could do with small repairs, but overall the Elysian is a paradise where you can relax and enjoy your vacation.

눇I stayed at The Elysian resort during CNY this year, well located near Seminyak square. I was extremely impressed by how well kept is this property. Hard to believe it opened over 10 years ago. The villa was impeccable and the private pool is always well cleaned. The staff made me feel at home and would always go above and beyond to accommodate all my requests. Spa is also really good and well priced vs other hotels. If you are a gym lover, this would unfortunately not be the right choice for you. Their partnership with a gym near by is available but this gym is very old, limited equipment and no AC!!! Their shuttle service was always available for drop off whenever I needed it. I truly look forward to staying at this resort again!! À la carte breakfast was great and inclusive. Amazing value; such type of accommodation would be 2x the price in Pkuket for example... Even though it is not located directly on Seminyak beach, it is quite close... Thank you Elysian team for a memorable stay!

눉Too many mosquitoes, even though they provided you with mosquito repellent. Bed was too low and not very comfortable. Pillows were too hard for a resort claiming to be five star. Bedding on bed was not appropriate for the temperature outside. Even though they probably would have changed it if we asked. worst of all hearing everything that went on in the existing villas including you know what.

눉Location in Seminyak appears to be great from the maps, however is down a very narrow lane that is dangerous to walk down and is a long way from any shops or restaurants, especially in the heat. It is a one-way lane so if traffic is coming from the other direction, you have to wait some time. Very frustrating. Staff generally ok but could do with improvements in customer service. Breakfast ok but nothing special. Orange Juice was from some concentrate and very watery. Villa around 10 years old and is starting to look tired. Bathroom in need of re-vamp and the rooms were decorated quite sparcely. The bath/shower looks like it belongs in some communist era building. Villas are overpriced for what you get. We stayed in Villa 21.
눇Villa pool was a good size as was the size of the villa in general. The shuttle was handy, however was generally unavailable unless you found a helpful staff member willing to give a ride into town.

눉The villas are cramped and completely lacking in any Balinese atmosphere, either traditional or modern.

눇The private pool villas were very well kept, considering the Elysian has been established for 8/9 years the hotel is immaculate! The villas themselves are very well thought through. The position of the hotel is also great, a short walk or shuttle into Seminyak centre yet beautifully tranquil if sunning yourself in your villa is what you're after. The staff are brilliant and the complimentary shuttle is an great service.

눉No direct access to the beach (5-10min by walk) Some towel have hole or burn mark from ironing The restaurant is quite classical, dont feel so much balinese. Still good product. If you check map you have better way to go to restaurant/shop area and beach than the "obvious" busy street, front desk should advise direction and provide a little map of around the hotel on the first day
눇Overall experience was very good, went on honeymoon package, were very happy. Wifi is good. Villa is very nice, lot of space Mosquitoes stuff provided for the villa Can order a lot for breakfeast / good quality/choice Breakfeast restaurant next to the pool is charming and pleasant Staff is always smiling and ok to help/ Can book good driver from the hotel front Overall location is good, nothing is far. (5-10 by walk you have restaurant, beach, bar and shop), the little street you have to take are not so bad, still you have to take care of car and scooter, traffic is a mess in Bali.
