Me and my friend stayed here one night in a backpackers room in March 2012. When we arrived at night we were wondering what sounds we were hearing (later found that out: the big waves). We were surprised that this guest house is situated right on the beach. It has a wonderful view on the sea. The restaurant and small garden look very cozy as well. Room was basic, but had a nice atmosphere. Mosquito nets on the bed could not close properly, so they had no function.
However, my whole experience is ruined by the 'boat service' recommended by the staff. Me and my friend (young female travellers) 'booked' what was called by the staff a 'shuttle to Gili Trawangan' on a ' tourist boat'. It turned out to be a lie. We were just taken by an old van and dropped close to the public boat harbor (but we did not know that), fooled by the people who said they would take us on the boat (they were talking in a very agressive way), forced to travel with a cimodo because the men told us the 'boat' would leave soon (little did we know that the harbor was only a short distance away) and later just dropped at the public boat. Paid an awful lot of money just for a transfer to the public boat which costs only 10,000 rupiah. So normally I would say I recommend this guest house, because of the nice atmosphere and location. Now that I know that the staff is involved with these kind of scams, I can only say: a waste of a good hotel.
