My family of 12 (9 adults + 3 kids) stayed at 5 bedroom villa at Villa Daria from 14/8 to 17/8 2019. We were in touch with a Villa agent by the name Ni Nengah Nanti [ - ] @Kadek [ - ] who was easy to deal with.
Kadek [ - ] and Putu, the homekeeper during our stay were there to greet me and my family. They went through every details with us. And funnily I had to request for a Welcome drink and Putu smiled and said - Ok we will give Coke. I've stayed at a few Villas in Bali before and there's always fresh juice to welcome us. So I found it rather weird to ask for a drink. But Kadek on the other hand, passed me a small cake she said she had purchased for us. I thought that was a kind gesture.
First look of the Villa and I realised it was nothing... nothing close to what you see online. The pool was poorly maintained. We didn't see a pool cleaner for the whole duration we stayed there even after I requested for one. They said he will come but he never did show up. We found a rusted nail in the pool on Wed, 14th meaning they didn't even clean the pool before we checked- in! We had to scoop up dead wasps and dried leaves with our hands daily. Requested for a pool rake from the gardener and we didn't get that either!
That night when we were all in the family room and kids running around we saw 2 big rats also running around the family room! We were disgusted. I mean I've never seen rats in a Villa ever. My cousin who was in touch with Kadek informed her and asked for something to be done because we have young kids on the trip with us and it is certainly dangerous when it is an open concept kitchen with all the cutleries and plates out in the open. The next day Kadek came and we finally met with the Villa Manager Ms. Sandra they said they will look for a new place for us. Our only request was for it to be clean, around the same vicinity and we are ok with a 4 bedder instead of 5! They took over 4 hours to get back to us and their solution?
A. We continue staying at Villa Daria (i.e. with the rats)
B. They refund us and we look for a new place By Ourselves
C. Pay an additional Rs11,200,000.00 for a cleaner Villa.
It was abysmal!!! We were left with no choice but to continue living in this very run down Villa. (Pls see attached photos).
Now, for breakfast. On the first day I requested for a menu where we get to choose our meal since the stay included Breakfast. Putu told me there's fixed Breakfast. Day 1: Bread & eggs; Day 2: Nasi Goreng; Day 3: Mee Goreng. I explained to her and said not everyone will want that so pls give us an option because a Villa should come with a Set Menu. And she just simply said No.
For Breakfast on the 1st morning... there was only 1 slice of bread per person...just 1 slice.. each with a choice of omelette or scrambled eggs. They did not cater for any more than that, till we asked. Only then did they go to the shop to buy more.. as they had not thought to bring more for us. If that wasn't bad enough, I am not joking when I tell you that we were given about 2 - 3 tablespoon of butter to share among all 11 of us! It was pathetic. Some of us requested for Black tea and we were given Green Tea instead. When I asked for black tea Putu just said we don't have! We then insisted on black tea the other 2 days. These are basic necessities in a Villa.
Day 3 we requested for Bread & Eggs again. They still served us with 1 slice of bread each. After much complaining, they still seemed reluctant to give us more than one slice of bread and when we requested more than their measly quota of butter the staff had to go out to get some. Then too they still stinged on it. When I asked why can't you just place more butter on our table she said we have finished half a block of butter throughout our stay! Mind you we did not pay a measly amount for this Villa. It was USD500 per night! And when a cousin asked for coffee her answer was we've run out! I mean where is your service quality?! Definitely shoved it down the drain with this lot! Isn't Tea and Coffee part of Breakfast that we've paid for and you're supposed to provide?
Then comes the sheets in the bedrooms. 1 was bloodstained. 1 looked like it was stained with rats urine (pls see picture) our towels too! Truly this is the worst Villa I've ever stayed in Bali. The bathrooms are poorly maintained. Stained sinks, stained toilet bowl, stained and cracked baths... dirty looking rugs and flooring. I can go on. Oh yes how can I forget the very very thin walls. We could hear each other in the bathrooms. We're utterly disappointed by renting Villa Daria.
This Villa is infested with Rats. On the last night we saw rats running in the kitchen.
For 3 nights we had to take all our food into our rooms.. esp Baby food.
Compared to other Villas that we had previously stayed in...the villa staff in Daria were truly disappointing.. they were never around or near enough to call... and on the few occasions that they were around they would just walk out of the Villa once their task was done without even a word to ask if we needed any assistance.
The staff at Villa Daria seems to think it is ok to live in this condition and I don't know if the Owner of the Villa is stingy but this place definitely needs some major reno works and a clean sweep of staffs!
This is truly unlike Bali!
I have been in Daria Villas for three nights with my boyfriend and it was the better way to enjoy the south and central Bali.
From Daria Villas you can easily reach Kuta, Uluwatu, Sanur, Canggu and other places.
The Villa is comfortable and the pool is very funny.
The staff is so kind and helpfull. They prepared for us a big breakfast every morning. I loved especially the pancake and French toast.
I wanna go back so much.
