Grand Barong Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We generally stop here on the first and last night when we are in Bali and have stayed 6 or 7 times over the last 2 1/2 years. Comfortable basic accommodation. Breakfast is good, other meals are adequate and reasonably priced. Very convenient for shopping or as a central point for travel. The last couple of times we have had to wait to check in past the check in time. Staff are generally good but sometimes can be slow. It has become a party central resort, loud unruly and drunk people at night, so this is a bit of a let down. Last year we stayed here twice, it was ok. Not sure if I will go back again.

Nice hotel, average food, staff attentive most of time. Close proximity to heart of Kuta. Short walk to beach. Right on poppies lane. Lots of nightlife. Walking distance to everywhere. Loads of bars. Food plus plus, would go again.

Grand Barong Resort is located in Popies Street II. We got a very spacious, clean and comfortable room that has a balcony overlooking the pool but a room with lagoon access would have been great too! (Maybe next time). The hotel is situated at the heart of Kuta close to restaurants that caters different cuisines, street markets where you can buy cheap goods, spas to pamper yourself after a day tour (which is very cheap by the way) and bars/clubs for night owls, all within walking distance. But if you want a quiet and peaceful location, this is not a place for you. Kuta is surrounded with a lot of night bars which means you will hear loud musics almost everywhere. Beachwalk Shopping Centre is about 5 minutes walk from the hotel and Kuta beach is about 10 minutes walk. Massage Spas are almost everywhere which we have enjoyed so much!

Bed is so comfortable - pity we didn’t get a good night sleep due to drunk, loud, banging, furniture removal tourists, yelling , swearing till 5.30am most nights of our stay, tried calling reception no answer , no answer on duty manager number, went down to reception., there is the night staff on their phone and the security doing the same.. told them if it happens again I want my money back, quiet for one night then again it happens still no answer on reception phone, lost my cool after that, next night 4am finally someone answers and does something about the disrespectful people ... this use to be a great hotel to stay at, it’s now more full of young yobbos, loud with no holiday etiquette, pity as the hotel staff are lovely and the breakfast is amazing.. If you want to party hard and be a drunk embarrassing yobbo then this is the place for you .

I came to Bali for my first time in august, my partner had been there once before but we had no idea where to stay, so I googled and found this place, and you know what I'm so glad I did the grand barong is such a nice hotel to stay at the rooms are good sized, the beds are comfy the breakfast is amazing I love bacon, and all the staff are so welcoming and accommodating, the resort is beautiful, nothing was ever a drama, I highly recommend!

This was my second stay at the grand barong after enjoying it so much last time I was rather let down. The hotel is very smelly and the shower leaves you feeling still dirty and smelly. Staff are very slow to serve you and found them to be quiet rude especially for Bali standards. The hotel food is terrible it’s all full of oil and it’s all you can taste. The pools are nice and clean but enough sun chairs. Location is good if you want to be in Kuta however I recommend staying elsewhere

Booked Grand Barong going on reviews and location. Location is fantastic. Hotel is fantastic. Staff fantastic. Absolutly loving our stay here, 2 pools have swim up bars.. noisy pool gets arvo sun so it's a bit hot and limited seating. Quiet pool always has seats available and dosent get arvo sun at the bar. Food at pool was great and reasonably priced. Breakfast was ok.. not alot of choices from day to day.. limited amounts of fruit..egg station slow for delivery.. but cafes so close anyway. We were close to busy bar but bever gave us issues for sleeping/relaxing. Check in / check out was fast and no issues at all. All staff including cleaners are fantastic. Rooms are big enough and we just had basic rooms rooms are clean and well equipped. Although I recommend to bring your own shampoo/conditioner and body lotion. Clean bathrobes are supplied daily, 2 coffee satules and 2 tea bags.. 2 small bottles of water also supplied daily. Highly recommend some of the planks around quiet pool be fixed as they pop up. More umbrellas around busy pool as there are only 2 for shade and its a fight to get one. Fans needed under pergola outside bedroom as it gets too hot to sit under the shade in the arvo. All in all I highly reccomend Grand Barong and will be back for sure.. if i could give a higher score i would for sure!

We stayed 7 nights at the Grand Barong, the location is handy to all of Kuta's attractions in Poppies 2 and there are many bars and restaurants within walking distance. Staff are very friendly and all greet you with a smile, deluxe rooms spacious and clean, breakfast had good variety, main pool is nice but could be noisy, front pool more of a haven from the constant loud music. Only negatives were the 400 or so steps we had to walk from the elevator to our 3rd floor room at the rear of the hotel, and also for the first couple of days the wifi, although connected to my phone, was not working. At first i thought it an issue with my iphone as my laptop hooked in fine, then I remembered when connecting my laptop it wouldn't let me connect through facebook so i connected through twitter. I had been to a pool party at the hotel on Australia Day last year and connected my phone through facebook then and it was automatically connecting via facebook this time and wouldn't allow through twitter. I spoke to an employee at reception who was able to get me in through twitter. He told me that he also had trouble connecting through facebook but when he spoke to their IT dept they said they couldnt do anything until a guest complained ... well there it is, IT guys!!

Grand Barong Resort Central in Kuta I feel it stills needs some maitience around the lagoon pool area.Lagoon pool with swim up bar can get a little noisey at times depends on the Guiests.Staff are very accomodating & friendly nothing is to much trouble. Buffet breakfast is ok with a vast variety of choices for everyone.

the room was comfortable but a little small. very clean and our housekeeper Ketut was very thorough and pleasant, even leaving towel animals on the well made bed. his boss agung was also most helpful. Ketut and other front desk staff were awesome. the restaurant was pretty good and rama did a great job with service. Naka in royal jacks was super and friendly, and windy at the tour desk helped as well. If you need a driver call for suma, good driver very pleasant and and great english . a good tour guide. The pools were great - lagoon a little loud with the party crowd. We thought facilities were overall great and clean and everything worked. If you needed anything you asked and it was there quickly.
