Mutiara Bali was recommended to me by a friend who stayed here with her family, but then continued to stay here by herself while waiting for her friends to arrive. It is very safe and secure. The pool is fabulous with frangapani trees and plants around the outside. We were upgraded to a family room- which was a double and a single bed. There was a welome drink with a cold towel and a fruit basket in our room on arrival. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The sheets did have a few stains on them, but nothing too scary. Rooms came with an insect repellent plug. The shower was an 'outside shower' however had a glass roof, which was fabulous. Especially as this means there are not too many mosquitos as you shower! The hotel is behind Cafe Bali, which you reach by heading up the street a bit and walking down a lane. This means you are very close to the Seminyak main strip with restaurant, bars and shops but the hotel is very quiet at night time. I would def stay here again.
