Stayed here for 4 nights as a part of our honeymoon and enjoyed the good location and room. Booked with Stephie online and paid 50% deposit via Australian bank transfers. Price she offered was higher than booking.com but she honoured the booking.com price anyway (this caused some confusion after when we were paying the bill but eventually they sorted it... More

One word: relaxed! The waterfront hotel is really easy going and very well organized. Manta dive and the Waterfront are one company. They say the rooms of the waterfront are a bit more luxurious. We stayed in the waterfront because Manta was full. The room is convenient, AC, outside bathroom/shower (with continuous fresh hot/cold water!), TV (who wants to used... More

I stayed here with my partner and our son (7 years old) for 4 nights in August. I booked directly with The Waterfront via email and the staff were very helpful and responded to emails quickly and efficiently :-) We arrived early not realising check in wasn't until 2pm (my mistake) and were greeted with friendly apologetic staff as our...

Stayed here for Christmas and had a great time. Location is excellent with the best snorkelling on the island right out the front of the hotel. Rooms although not real big are comfortable although lacking cupboard space. Staff are fantastic - nothing was too hard for them. Food was great and the cocktails - awesome! Will definitely be back

Waterfront hotel is lovely - on the waterfront, next to the dive shop. Concrete walls, enclosed open bathroom, TV, safe, great aircon for a cool night's sleep. Lower room numbers towards the front, but they are behind the pool, so all in a good spot. Good coffee & breakfasts. Reef right out the front to snorkel on; easier at low... More

Hotel location is very good, close to every where and away from the main port. Hotel staffs are friendly and nice. My children likes to play with them at the restaurant and I feel safe as a parent. Breakfast is normal. select from a provided menu. Hotel price is reasonable since we have a discount when diving with manta dive.... More

We spent 4 nights at the Waterfront hotel. The bungalow was lovely, clean and modern with a super comfy bed! The reception desk is at Manta Dive next door and we were greeted and showed to our rooms by a member of the dive staff so we didn't have much contact with the waterfront staff until we left but everyone...

We stayed here for 4 nights on our honeymoon. The staff were great, answering emails in advance and booking our fast boat tickets and transfer from Ubud. On arrival they showed us straight to our room and explained the discount policy for diving and food and drink in the restaurant. The room was lovely, quite small but perfectly appointed. The...

Stayed here for a week. Good location. Small, modern bungalows equipped with AC (which, in contrast to some of the other places on our trip, was able to keep up with the heat). Nice porch with seating area and view to garden. Do not expect any sea view, though: the 'waterfront' refers to the restaurant only. The reception is the... More

Stayed in Waterfront for 2 nights. Limited breakfast menu. Clean, modern but basic room. Staff are really friendly and helpful. We got airport transfers, took us 1.5hrs car ride from airport to speed boat then about 10mins on speed boat to get to Gili Air. Airport transfer back wasn't convenient. Despite our repeated attempt to clarify why they need to... More
