Great trip, especially for a family. Waves near the hotel were full of surf schools. I saw airport lefts from a tower at waterbom ( 2kms away ) and was glad I didn't get a boat out there, overhead and over my head.
Did a heap of day trips. 30km Mountain bike ride in Ubud, awesome riding through rice paddies and farms. White water rafting, pretty mild rapids but you do it for the view which is awesome. Full day boat trip to Lembongan, terrible terrible rough as guts to get there, Mrs beerfan was pretty sick. I wasn't but didn't love the trip. Once there it was great though. Waterbom all day for the kids, I must've done 30 rides myself haha. Uluwatu temple, this got postponed once due to some stomach issues, then on the day we went it pissed down for hours and we left it til very late in the day but it cleared up beautifully and we saw the fire dance at sunset, epic place, and a must do. Saw the memorial at Kuta too.
Best thing I think was the people. So friendly and learning just a few words and greetings got lots of smiles.
The traffic is off the richter, so frustrating. Cheap as but we did a hell of a lot of walking. And drank a hell of a lot of Bintang
