Great once we were in the right rooms

On our first night we stayed in an older room and on the first floor, which was ok they did upgraded us. We had requested the newly renovated rooms, ground floor and by the pool months ago. There was one available the next day so they moved us. The room was lovely. The following day they moved the rest of my family to the same rooms, which made it a lot easier with the grandchildren. They thoroughly enjoyed it and want to go back again.

Ok but nothing special

Location is great, very close to all the good shopping and a short walk from the best restaurants and night life of seminyak. But I would have to say that the rooms and pools are a bit run down and in desperate need of attention. We were initially put in a superior room just past reception and by the pool but this was of substandard and similar to rooms I have stayed in India, you can imagine what I found. An upgrade to a deluxe was much better but if I went again I would definitely stay somewhere else. Sorry to say but I feel it's important to be honest.

Fabulous

Stayed here many times before - great site, great rooms, great location, love that you can eat a leisurely buffet breakfast overlooking the beach. Staff are so very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Great for couples or families. We will always look to stay here in Bali as a first option.

Another great Bali holiday

We've stayed at the melasti around 6 times, love the location but the cottage suites desperately need work/maintenance/upgrading. The past few years we have said that we would try different accommodation next year, due to the maintenance issues but next year unless something drastically changes we will.be looking elsewhere. There is basically something wrong with every suite, whether it be poor aircon, water leaks, mosquitos due to gaping holes in fly wire.....the suites desperately need some maintenance!

Good budget accommodation

We had a very pleasant stay at Melasti. Booked a superior room but on arrival it was twin beds and we had booked double so they offered us a suite at an extra charge of course. Whilst talking to other people by the pool this is a common accurance so just bear that in mind it blew our budget for the holiday. Having said that location is excellent, staff are excellent we enjoyed the breakfast overlooking the beach each morning and the suite was large and comfortable. Renovations by the pool quite noisy with jackhammers etc but overall stay was good.

Great location staff very attentive overall great experience

Initially our room that was booked was in very poor state should not really be rented out till it has had a bit of a overhaul . We upgraded to a suite #208 next morning worth the extra cost was pretty good. So would suggest to upgrade your choice of rooms till all upgrades have been completed. Loved our stay

The Melasti is good value at a great location.

The Melasti is an older hotel showing signs of wear and tear. However, the rooms are clean and large and are serviced daily. Overall service was excellent with friendly staff. Great location if you like the busyness of Bali. Right on the beach and a short walk to shops, restaurants and bars. We would stay there again.

Just Fantastic

Have nothing but praise of the highest kind overall was just perfect, service was fantastic, the location could not be in a more perfect position, the staff from management to room boys, cooks, drivers, breakfast staff, pool boys, all very pleasant and ready to help in any way they could, if I have forgotten anybody I am sorry, because anyone I came in contact with were just well mannered and willing to help, I would recommend this resort to anyone traveling to Bali, it will make your holiday worthwhile and enjoyable, hassle free vacation just what we all need. Well done and thank you.

Stayed at Melasti Beach Resort numerous times over 10 yr period, rooms are tired and ideally need refurbishing, however clean and tidy. Staff and service has always been friendly and attentive grounds beautiful. Great value for money. One of the few remaining affordable resorts for families on the beach front.

A more traditional Bali hotel

The Melasti Hotel in Legian offers a great Bali venue to stay. It is getting a little old and some renovation is necessary (we had trouble with the room safe and the air con was average) but overall it offers a more traditional Bali stay at a good price (unlike some of the more recent accommodation that is pretty much the same whether you're in Bali or Sydney or LA - boring). The hotel grounds, pools and location are superb and as always the staff go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. I went with 3 children (13, 10, and 8) and they loved it. Depending on what you want from your accommodation, I would not hesitate in recommending the Melasti Hotel to families. Legian is also so much more relaxed then the chaos of Kuta.

EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY

A Little tired and parts do need some TLC. Place needs new pool furniture and more towels. Breakfast has some very odd combinations and not very western when you look at the amount of Australians staying. Some smoking restrictions would be nice I think we were the only non smokers. Having mentioned a few negatives if you look at what you are paying it represents very good value for money.

Got to try this one

The Melasti Beach Resort was great. It is an older style resort which makes you feel like your holidaying in Bali and not anywhere else in the world like some of these newer resorts. The resorts location was good, positioned right on the beach close to restaurants, bars, shops and markets. The hotel had a great atmosphere, the staff really friendly and helpfull and my 4 year old son loved the three swimming pools. It was a very relaxing place to stay, very quiet at night time, which was good for us with young children. I would defiantly recommend the Melasti Beach Resort and the cottage suites and are very happy with the service we received from Travelonline. Thankyou very much and we will speak to you soon.

Excellent value for families on a budget

We recently stayed at the Melasti Beach Hotel, we found it great value for families on a budget. We stayed in a cottage suite room towards the beach, they were very spacious and its great because you pay per room not per person. The suites sleeps up to five people. Even though they were older they were very clean.The location is excellent, beachfront and close to great resturants and shopping. The free Wi-Fi was great for our teens. The staff are some of the nicest, sincere people I have encountered in my many trips to Bali. The 3 pools are well maintained but are deep. The only downside was the renovations to the beachfront restaurant. They provided a great breakfast in the ballroom. Will be great when they reopen the restaurant. In my opinion this is a fantastic value for money resort for families on a budget, even though it is older than most it has everything you need, I will definetely be staying here again as we had a fantastic time. Well done Melasti..

Disappointing the large pool was being renovated, as that meant the medium pool was crowded.

Not bad value for money

This Property is no good for anyone with a disability.I have a bad knee, and around the property are alot of uneven paver's. A fair walk to the breakfast room, and the road that the Melasti faces onto is a nightmare to walk around. It is located on a sharp bend, scooters scream around, I had alot of trouble trying to cross the road because I could not always walk fast enough due to my knee injury. The foot paths are very steep, narrow and have bits of metal (Loops) on them.

The island shaped pool was closed for five days due to algae problems. This pool was hard to get into and out of with a sore knee because there are is no hand- rails and the steps are steep.
