Villa, 1 Bedroom, Private Pool

Staff are fantastic and attentive
However the facilities are in need of a spruce up, very budget style villa, feels very boxed in.
A bit rundown, reasonable location, friendly staff
We arrived with a 1 room booking and found the area very small with very little room outside for eating or relaxing (the reason you get a private villa, right?). We asked to have a look at other rooms and requested an upgrade to the 2 bedroom for more outdoor area. We were charged an extra 500,000IR/ night, bit of a rip off, but cheaper than forking out for another place.
The first night we lost power in the villa, we were told the power was out in all of seminyak, yet there seemed to be a lot of lights on everywhere else.... so not sold on that excuse.
The key also got stuck in the lock (just an old cheap lock). It couldn't be resolved that night but they did replace the lock in the morning. We could lock the gate still so it wasn't the end of the world, just a bit annoying.
There wasn't a dvd player in the room (as advertised), so we had to ask for that. It was sorted out in about half an hour so not a major issue, just a bit annoying.
Some of the food in the included breakfast wad a little questionable, so we ate out the rest of our stay.
Got to say the staff were really attentive and friendly, but the management of the hotel is just very reactive rather than proactive.
It's within walking distance of double 6 beach (about 10 minutes) and some decent restaurant options, so we were pretty happy with the location.
We hired a bike from the hotel, it served us well and we had heaps of fun!
All in all it did the job, but I think far better places are out there for comparable $
Affordable Villa With A Downside
The location of the Villa is quite convenient which is near Jalan Legian for shopping/food and a walking distance to Legian Beach. Anywhere else, if you got the legs to walk, walk away. If not, there is always Blue Bird taxi to flag down (Make sure they charge by meter, if not you'll get ripped off). There is a shuttle service provided by the Villa to some of the predetermined locations.
The Villa itself is kinda outdated when it was first launched. Which means it wasn't really well maintained and fresh supplies of sheets/mattress have not being replenish.
Kitchen was placed outside, separated from the room which kinda troublesome when you wanna grab a cold drink from the fridge.
The villa comes with a very small pool, more like a Jacuzzi sized pool. Great to soak, but not to swim.
WiFi is included, the connection is good. TV comes with cable.
Staff there are friendly and helpful but other than that, it's a place that I will not stay again.
Few things for them to improve on:
1. New sheets please. Sheets are no longer white, got a few stains.
2. Replace the mattress. It is too springy.
3. Get the aircon checked out. I set it to 16 degrees Celsius but the room is still warm.
4. Please include mopping the outer area of the Villa during housekeeping.
5. Since the kitchen is separated from the room, it would make much sense to have the mini fridge in the room.
Too far from beach
Need to walk quite a while to the beach which isn't very pleasant under the hot sun.
It was a clean villa with very friendly staff... just felt a little let down from what when i booked the villa to what i walked into was completely different.. the photos of villa seemed different to when we arrived..
Nice hotel which is close to many F&B outlets..
Great place to rest relax. Staffs are friendly and always ready to assist.
