We went to the coast last week, but without booking a hotel in advance.
We dropped on this place, the hotel Persona Krakatau in Anyer.
The place was on the main road, had an Indomaret 20 yards up the road, and the 24 hour security patrolled car park was easily big enough to cope with the guests' cars.
The swimming pool was clean, free from sand and rubbish, and the deep end was well marked to avoid accidents.
There wasn't a life guard at any time I was there or walked past.
The restaurant was clean and tidy, and I saw into the kitchens several times, noting they were equally clean.
However, much as it looked good, the breakfasts would have been considered poor in a Rp150,000 hotel, so were atrocious in a medium expensive place.
The first morning wasn't great, suffering from a lack of much choice and less than delicious food, but the second morning was disgusting.
The orange juice was missing, and the fried rice was really lousy; I didn't bother eating much of the stuff.
The conclusion - Nice and clean, but the food wasn't up to the standard of the rest of the hotel, so I don't believe it was value for money.
I wouldn't go there again unless they did something with the menu.
