Very high standard for this island. We stayed at the Mango retreat for the first three days on Gili Air. We then moved to another hotel that is/was ranked higher here on Tripadvisor and were so disappointed that we cancelled after two days and moved back to Scallywags but this time we stayed at the Smuglers Hideaway for four days. Do not underestimate the value of proper sound isolation when staying on an island where roosters and chickens run free in the streets.
The manager Mira was very helpful and competent and I can understand why the staff at the Mango, Smuggler's and the Organic restaurant are so smiling and happy. She is doing an awesome job as a manager for the Scallywags on Gili Air and the staff are very well trained.
If you value silence and expect at least four star standard from a hotel this is the only place to stay on the island. We loved both the Mango and the Smuggler's and would stay on either location when we visit the island again… which we most certainly will do :)
