You get what you pay for
The butt of some withering online reviews, the friendly staffed Pasific/Pacific (you’ll see it spelled interchangeably) struck us as very much a case of you get what you pay for.
Very much an old school landbank, they have two main styles of accommodation -- the older rooms back near the road and the newer rooms down by the pool and overlooking the ocean. Neither are outstanding value, but the location is great, right on a pleasant stretch of grey sand, and a headland away from Senggigi proper. The cheaper rooms are oversized, but have grotty bathrooms, old lumpy beds and vinyl couches -- always a calling card of a dated room. The newer rooms are better in every way and are well appointed overlooking a modern pool beside the beach. That said if you’re willing to stump up 1.5 million rupiah, we’d say either stretching yourself to cover the cost of Chandi or moving further north to Alang Alang would be money well spent.
