Ole and wasted away...Posted Apr 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
Do not expect any luxury, while the price may seem low for Bali standard, this is in fact highly priced as they DO NOT have basic such as Kettle for boiling water, sufficient heated water for shower, TV that works and underpowered Aircon (we have to shift the bed across the room to feel the aircon to fall asleep), overall just go there for the dolphin watching (overrated - 80 tourist boats chasing after 20 dolphins and almost killed these dolphins!)

Nice hotel. Not the best location.Posted Oct 15, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel was nice. It was nicely landscaped, right on the beach and has a good sized, well maintained pool with swim up bar. The rooms were a decent size with a comfortable bed and good AC. The staff was friendly and willing to help although we found we had to call up on 2 occasions to get towels brought to our room that they forgot to give us. That was just minor though. The only issue is the 20 minute walk to the restaurant area of Lovina. This is fine in most cases but can be a bit of an annoyance when you are tired and just want to get back to the hotel room at night. You can always get a cheap transport back though. Again.. It's a minor issue. Finally, breakfast was your standard buffet, but good omelettes and bacon. I enjoyed my stay. (Side note: WiFi is only available in and around the lobby, not in your actual room)

Great LocationPosted May 30, 2012 on Hotels.com
This hotel is in a really good location, right on the beach. We found it to be pleasant enough. It had a good sized pool and a pool bar. The breakfast was the usual fare and the tea and coffee were ok. Only had dinner in the hotel once as I was not happy with my meal. They did the right thing though and offered me something else and took my meal off the bill. There is a restaurant next to the hotel on the beach called Starlight, very nice. Best tip:Don't book dolphin tours through the hotel. Seek out Capt Gede Gudir, he is normally just out the back of the hotel. Text him on 081337354499. He charged us 50000 each (hotel price was 175000 each of which the hotel gets 75000, the operators get 50000), the hotel boats go out for about an hour, Capt Gede took us out for 3 hours. We were the only ones out there with a huge pod of dolphins swimming alongside our boat. It was an amazing experience, one I will not forget. We would probably stay at the Anika again if we return to Lovina.

Aneka - LovinaPosted Jan 3, 2012 on Hotels.com
I thought the satff was lovely. I did find the local people on the beach a bit hard to handle especially Tom the driver who told us that we were going to the coffe plantation for the luwak coffee (cat poo coffee) and ended up buying a dud packet of coffee for way toooo much money. Word of warning Dont use Tom as your driver. Loved Benny who took us out to see the dolphins he was lvely & I think quite genuine.

Good Lovina Hotel but beach is poorPosted Sep 4, 2011
The hotel cottages are nice looking and comfortable inside, the grounds are regularly maintained. It has a nice pool. The beach outside is full of parked boats and has no other shadow. Inside the sea it leaves a lot to be desired with muddy rather than sandy ground that really does not feel very pleasant. Maybe other nearby beaches are better but not this one. The hotel restaurant we used it only once and is very average. In Lovina and also to the next path to the beach (about 500 m are much better choices)
