Express immigration is usually US$25 30 per person.
When looking for somewhere to stay for the family you cant go past a 1, 2 or 3 bedroom apartment, choosing an apartment has the benefit of having a good sized fridge and cooking facilities which is much easier than going out or eating at the Hotel for every meal which even in Bali can still add up to a considerable amount in comparison to going down to the Supermarket and stocking the fridge with everyday items.
