Charles from Worthing
Filion Suites was a lovely hotel. Immaculately clean. Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent food. A great pool-side bar. Beautiful pools and very quiet and tranquil set high in the mountains. It is a long way from the beach up a very steep hill and would be very difficult to walk to the beach. We had to hire a car in the end despite the best efforts of the hotel to ferry people up and down. The hotel mini bus only took 7 people and at times had to make 5 trips down to take people to the beach which intailed long waits. However,we would definitely go back and hire a car at the airport as it's a very simple drive down to Bali.
Travel Republic were excellent and even happy to make changes after the booking was made. Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent e-mail confirmation and information sent.
“ Top Tip: Hire a car, it's very isolated but beautifully quiet if you just want to get away from everything.

“ The hotel is spotlessly clean, and Manos who is in the bar is exceptional nothing is too much trouble. The food however leaves a lot to be desired whilst everything else is 5 star the food certainly is not. The hotel will run you to the beach and whilst it says set times they are flexible, however the bus only holds 8 people so they need to have a bigger bus as there was often 18 plus people waiting. The pools are great and very clean the tennis court is also brand new.
“ Top Tip: Bali its self was a revolation, we have been to Crete several times but never to Bali, there are lots of little beaches and a small port as well as some good restaurants. You need to be a bit adventurous there are lots of hidden beaches, if its shops and nighlife you are after then Bali is not for you.
David from Manchester
“ Very quiet and pleasant hotel. Great views. Too far out of town to walk (30mins). Shuttle service during day should have been available at night. Pleasant bar area. Rooms very nice. Needs a gym to be 5*. Extras and drinks expensive. Food satisfactory rather than good, but always a good choice. Breakfast better. Reception staff seemed a little abrupt and not as helpful and forthcoming as they could be. Would return to this hotel.
“ Top Tip: Worth hiring a canoe at the beach in Bali. Very good value.
John from Solihull
“ Well maintained and presented hotel and worthy of its 5 star rating. Excellent range of food on offer at breakfasts and evening meal, staff very polite, accommodating, friendly and make every effort to make you feel relaxed and at home. My wife and I stayed two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Hotel courtesy bus makes 7 - 8 trips each day to Bali which is about 1 mile away. The trip to town is mostly downhill and my wife and I enjoyed walking each morning, the walk took about 20 minutes and we arranged for the bus to take us back up-hill later on. Bali has 4 beaches each set in small coves, the largest beach had plenty of restaurants offering food and drinks at medium to slightly high prices but if you are a guest at a restaurant you can usually use their beach chairs and umbrellas for no extra charge. Special mentions to Renata/Rene and Manos.
Nicholas James from Hereford
The hotel is fantastic, its located in the mountains, so be prepared it is a bit hilly.
You will find the hotel, very clean, very modern and very relaxing.
The staff are fantastic, friendly and always willing to help. Manos in the pool bar is a cheaky chappy - go visit him for a cocktail - be warned they are very stong!
The only slight negatives - the hotel is set away from the village of Bali. Be prepared for a long walk... its longer then 20 mins. There is a shuttle bus, running every two hours, but this finishes at 6pm. The bus is always over subscribed - so you may have to wait for the 2nd or 3rd trip!
“ Top Tip: Take the boat trim to Rethimnol.. very good (visit the old town). The market on is on Saturdays only.
