If you've come to Bali to party this is the place to be. The beach is across the road, the Hardrock Cafe is next door, and there are lots of bars that you can walk to.
Mercure Hotel was fine but the room was nothing special. A bit small and could be cleaner. But the bed was comfortable and there were movie channels on TV. The infinity pool looks as great as on the hotel website. I'd stay here again if I found a cheap rate.
