Right on the sea, the hotel was just outside the main part of CandiDasa. There were some nice restaurants close by, and a couple of little local shops but not much else. It was not far into the town as such, but the busy road and lack of a decent pavement, made the walk difficult for us, especially in the heat.
The hotel was very nice, the gardens and pool were lovely. Our Villa was in a great position right by the infinity pool, overlooking the sea. It was a bit tired. There was a very comfortable sofa which was great after weeks of sitting on hard chairs, but it needs new covers. The bed was fine, and the TV worked. The outdoor shower room was attractive, with a well lit mirror and power point for a hairdryer, although it was a bit worn in places. The room badly needed some easy to access power points, for charging and the kettle, but it was fine.
Breakfast was very good, and the restaurant food also. The service from everyone was delightful, and they all spoke excellent English, which was very impressive.
We had a couple of spa treatments, which were good and reasonably priced, however the spa needs attention, everything was a bit tatty and worn. There is a small courtyard garden that you sit opposite to have a pedicure that could be spruced up in a few hours, which would give the clients something pretty to look at rather than the back of a building and air conditioning unit!
