“Not great”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

This hotel really shouldn't have " resort " in its name as it is far from it. Lovely pool area with a sparkling pool and lovely garden however often wet towels everywhere and bits and pieces of rubbish, not cleaned often enough. Our room, upstairs at the back was very quiet and the bed was comfy but words cannot describe the bathroom. I understand properties deteriorate in this climate but it was filthy. Rusty hair clip in the shower when we arrived was still there when we left 8 days later. Hand basin often had toothpaste in it after being cleaned. All the shower fittings were rusted through and toiletries not replenished at all. I don't mind the geckos and we didn't have any issues with bedbugs or mossies. Breakfast was average but adequate and we had some gorgeous meals in the restaurant. No drinking water was supplied in our room and the freezer was blocked solid with ice. Staff pleasant but not great.we thought it was overpriced for what was provided.

Room Tip: Find somewhere else.

14th time in Gili Trawangan and 5th time staying at GT Resort. From the look of the reviews in here, people are expecting too much on the standard of hostels on the island. You will find gekkos, cikcaks, bedbugs, etc in ALL the hotels/hostels on the island - even the upper priced ones like Ombak and Almarik. GT Resort is located perfectly in the middle of everything. Close to beach and right in the hub. Compared to the other hotels I have stayed in, this one stands out as one of the best. Rooms are small and basic, but you´re only going to sleep here anyways. The bathrooms could have done with a little upgrade, but otherwise ok. Place has a generator, which is a pluss when power cuts throughout the island occure. AC worked well and fresh water in the shower. Friendly staff, good breakfast and good value for the price.

Room Tip: Those of you staying for a longer period or traveling with kids should ask for a room at the back as...

Bed bugs, blood stains in the beds, bad service and staff that barely spoke english. Very small breakfast. Over the restaurant there is a large club with really loud music pumping so I had trouble sleeping. When we complained all they said were that no one else ever complained. Dont go there!

We spent 4 nights here. This is one of the worst hotels i visited. The rooms are very smal, dark and very filthy. The bathrooms where very basic and dirty. Pillow and bedsheets where always stained whit blood in booth our rooms. Last night We found a bedbug on our pillow and talked to the reception and they fixed a new room fast. Moore bloodstains on the pillow and sheets. After 30 min We found a bedbug on the wall in this room to.. However we decieded to stay in this room for the night. On the morning we found another bedbug on the wall. We told the reception this when we checked out, and got told that no one else had complained about bedbugs and they havent had any problems before whit bedbugs, but i think the stains all over the bed tellls something else. The breakfast is very poor. A few difrent things to choose between. Ordered pancakes 4 days in a row, 1 day of those the pancakes where good, the other days it wasnt done. They have a bar over the resturant that plays wery loud music every night and made it hard to sleep for some of us, shouldnt be a problem If u are young but maby good to know If u like early evenings. Havent stayed at any other hotel on gili so i can't tell If this is ok compared to other hotels on gili. I Would never in my life go back to this rathole.

We had booked a room at Gili T resort for ten days. At first it looked pretty good. The room was a bit small and dark, but good enough. The pool area was nice. We were relaxing in bed when we saw a little bug in our bed. We killed it. And it was full of blood. We realized it was a bed bug. And it was NOT the only one. Suddenly we could see many,big and small ones, crawling up the wall. We also found several inside our pillows. We asked to change rooms. In the new room,there were also bed bugs! We did not sleep all night. We checked out as soon as we could the next morning. No way that we were going to stay there for ten days! We actually had to pay for the night we spent there. Even though we had not slept at all. My friend did get bed bug bites. Does not look good. Now we just hope we did not get any bed bugs with us in our luggage.

Ill advise all Tripadvisor readers to ignore this comment. YES we DID have a bedbug problem but haven't in 3 months since we tackled the issue. this guest came and was not happy as we could not refund there money for the first night as per online booking contract. The guest had friends at another resort and wanted to move. There WAS NO ISSUE with there room. Ive advised TA but to no avail so if this response seems rude, I appoligise to our other readers
