We chose this place for a nights stay on 25th Jan 2013 (thanks to good reviews on trip advisor) and ended up booking a 2nd night
Our driver took a little time to find it as like everywhere in Indo the street signs etc are quite easy to miss...when we arrived you must drive down a small bumpy road and a few hundred meters you're greeted by a cool bunch of guys who seem very happy you are there.
We asked to see the backpacker bungalow we'd seen it online for $25 a night and were trying to stick to a budget...a friendly guy showed us one bungalow which had a double bed a sofa and outdoor shower with hot water, this was for $70, they showed us next to the backpacker bungalow, the only difference was its quite small but hey it was great for us, it consisted of two single beds put together with good mosquito net giving complete coverage, a wardrobe, fan, and outdoor shower with only cold water. Perfect.
The restaurant served really really nice food, we ate there for dinner twice, lunch once and breakfast twice. The chef's were very good and we enjoyed all food.
Really beautiful and clean pool area which looks out onto the ocean, great views over the mountains especially at sunset.
Staff: All staffs were great, helped with finding drivers and also when we advised our next stop was gili trawangan they organised a long boat and dive trip for us.
We'd recommend this place to anyone for a basic but wonderful stay.
