Expect to pay extra if you want a nice breakfast
Our stay at Amed Dream hotel included breakfast. Now I read beforehand it wouldn't be much but even my low expectation of it was too high. There were three types of breakfast menus available, see photo attached. As you will notice the first two (American and Continental breakfast) are almost identical: you just don't get eggs with the continental one. The last menu (Indonesian) is an either-or menu of the three choices presented meaning it's even less attractive value-wise. That Indonesian menu also doesn't include any fresh fruit, which I haven't seen in any hotel before in Bali, and if you want it you need to pay a 45k IDR surcharge. Which for two slices of pineapple, two slices of papaya and two slices of water melon (all very small) is beyond ridiculous in terms of local pricing (or European for that matter, it translates to > 3 euro's for a few small scrapes of fruit). Besides from everything in the "breakfast corner" section of the menu being available only as surcharge, most annoying of all is the included coffee in the menu's. This is just Balinese coffee only which I happen to not like. I could understand not offering a cappuccino with the default menu (although really? It's just a bit of foamed milk...) but fail to see why ordering an American breakfast would not include a long black from regular coffee at least. This is, by far, the worst breakfast I've had in my 2 week stay in Bali. The only thing I can say about it that's positive is that the food itself at least was OK, and that the noodles were a better choice than the American breakfast in hindsight.

Disappointing food, unless it's local cuisine
As we are staying at this hotel we wanted to try out the restaurant with it's stunning coast views. It started of great with free prawn crackers and peanuts. As a starter I choose soto ayam and my boyfriend pumpkin soup. The soto ayam was great, served in a nice big bowl and had good filling. The pumpkin soup however was served in a tiny bowl compared to the soto ayam, had croutons which were soggy and tasted horrible. As a main we both had spareribs with fries instead of rice. It seems like the timing in the kitchen was off as the fries were completely cold (but crunchy) the vegetables too (but they did taste allright) The ribs were warm, but of bad quality, it had very little meat to it, which was very disappointing. As the prices here are a bit above average, I do expect better food. Maybe the staff needs to learn more as the hotel is very new, but I must say we are disappointed with the food.
