“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We stayed here as a family of 4 so had 2 interconnecting rooms. The rooms etc are fairly simple, but is in keeping with the feel of gili air and was incredibly good value for money.
If you are a diver (we aren't) then this is the place for you as there are loads of divers at this resort and there seems to be a good friendly sociable feel about this place (people in groups together chatting.laughing and eating together). We found the staff really friendly and helpful (giving us tips on where to snorkel to see turtles- which we did- was amazing!)
Breakfast was included, simple but fine and we had a few lunches and drinks at the waterfront restaurant which were really tasty and very good value (as a guest in the hotel you get 10% off) we were paying about £1.50-£2 for Indonesian Meals).
Location is great, right down the road from all the bars and restaurants.
We had a fantastic time on such a beautiful island with such a laid back relaxing way of life and manta dive was very good value for money and met our needs well.

I didn't stay here but used Manta for 5 days of Diving. The fun dives were good, each an hour long with a small charge (£5) for Nitrox. The dives cost about £20 each, and our guide, Sam, was helpful and keen to point out interesting sea life. Will be back!

We stayed in both the Sasak bungalows and the Garden rooms during our two week stay in Gili Air and think it was great value. The rooms are beautiful, clean, and well-maintained and the staff there are very helpful and friendly. Being a 5 minute walk from the 'nightlife' area of Gili Air, it was very quiet at night. Best of all the dive shop is very professional and provides a nice sense of community, and the we thought the reef in front of the property was the best area for snorkeling when we weren't diving. Breakfast from the Waterfront restaurant next door was included and the generous selections were great before diving. Cocktails at happy hour were nice too!

Room Tip: Sasak bungalows have a little more character, but the Garden rooms are slightly bigger, so both were...

Our Second visit in Two years. Went last year with our adult children and returned with a friend for four days. Had so much fun we kept extending our stay. Could have made it our entire trip to the area.Great diving and snorkeling, superb diving instruction, good service, and good food. Bungalows are very clean and comfy. We will definitely be back.

We stayed here for 8 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room was large and cleaned daily. The outdoor bathroom was nice and we didn't notice a huge difference having salt water showers, despite what other people have said! The staff are lovely and breakfast in the Waterfront restaurant was delicious. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice and reliable place on the beach with amazing view over the sea. Bungalows are big and there are enough place for your luggage, nice and clean place. The staff is helpful and make you feel cosy. The main point of our trip was to go diving for the first time, and this is definitely the best place for doing that! For two days we studied and dived with our great diving instructor Nic who made the whole experience even more relaxed, safe and enjoyable. Instructors english was very clear and very easy to understand to us who don't speak english at home. He was nice to tell us what exciting marine life we were about to encounter so it was great to know and understand the creatures we saw. It was safe to leave your stuff by the reception while diving and you didn't have to worry about them. Overall, great place and great experiences!

We stayed there for 3 nights and dive with them. Jess the dive master, was really great and knowledgable about all sea creatures living down under. We enjoyed every dive we had and we will go back there again next time.
