A little dated but charming and right on the beach plus swimming pool. We had a superior terrace room upstairs in the 2 storey blocks. The bedroom and bathroom are large with outside terrace. You have to shower in sea water though and fill the kettle with bottled water. The room wasn't terribly clean when we arrived so we had to ask for the floor to be washed again - I think they have problems getting the rooms ready for new guests in time. Breakfast was good although they allow smoking on the outside covered terrace. The beach is across the road but as there are only horses and carts on the island, there is no traffic noise. We did not eat in the restaurant but had good meals at others along the only road which seem to specialise in barbecued fish and meat with salad, etc all in the deal. It's difficult to swim in the sea as the water is so shallow within the reef but most people go to Gili for the diving. You'll either love it or hate it but for 4 days, we loved it!
