Having read many unhappy reviews of sad old, moldy, dark rooms, dolphin abuse(really unimpressive) in Lovina and rip off places with dominating scary owners(see Frangipani) I was almost set to pay the extra $$ for Damai before stumbling upon the new Lilin. Based on few photos & the promise of the beachside plunge pool I was eager to try somewhere clean and new.
We were very happy there. Arriving to free juices & big smiles. I thought to American owner was Ricki(not Heather) but nevertheless the room was great. We got a TV & DVD installed at no cost. The breakfasts were delicious. The place is a little away from the main city centre but given we had a car it was no issue. Bit far if you're walking everywhere esp. At night. The beach here however is cleaner & there are no toutes.
Pros... Room upgrade! We were not pressured to dolphin stalk, friendly & unobtrusive staff, clean everything & great cooked eggs & coffee. Direct beach view, no boats out the front.
Cons... If our room would have had neighbors next door we would have felt a bit too close. However for 2 couples or a family it would be great. In fact if you're 8 ppl get the whole place & have a great beach side party space! book soon before they finish the other rooms. Having said that there was some morning construction noise but it won't last long!
We werent hot on sad old Lovina the town but Lilin will make our time there memorable!!
