Starting from check in i have nothing but praise for the Casa Padma suites. The shuttle driver was waiting for us at the airport when we arrived, and was very helpfull with our luggage. Upon arrival we were give a complimentary drink whilst we checked in. Check in took less tjan 5 mins by very friendly and helpfull staff. Our room (family deluxe suite) was spacious, clean and had excellent airconditioning. Our only criticism with the room was the water pressure, but it wasnt a big deal. The pool was clean and spacious with a swim up bar at each end. We ate in the restaurant every night and can't fault the food. Excellent quality and value. The staff are friendly and courteous and go out of their way to make conversation. Given the number of rooms, it's not overcrowded, but not totally quiet. We found it to be just the right mix. We did hear some music from the pub across the road, but not enough to keep us awake. The beach is 5 - 600m down at the end of the street. Shopping is right outside, and Kuta is only a 10 - 15 minute taxi ride (2 - 3 aussie dollars) depending on the traffic. I rated the kids activities average, but they dont advertise a kids club, so we weren't expecting it. Location makes up for it. Probably more suited to families and those seeking a slightly quieter place to stay, id have no hesitation in staying here again, and will be in the future.
