We were having a great time, staying in a nice A-frame bungalow, abiding the many, many rules, and eating all our meals there (so giving them a very large amount of money - in our 3 months in Indonesia we never spent that much at one place). We were the only guests and were in one of the 2 identical... More

... Perfect place for a few relaxing days away from the world ... no comfort but just as imagined myself to stay on this beautiful island ... bamboo bungalows with shower ... all the buildings located on the beach ... beautiful surroundings with a variety of vegetation ... a small bar and restaurant of the hotel is open all day...

Second time in 3 years. Last time as single traveler, this time with the family. The Sunset gecko remains the nice simple place where everything is on turtoise time, but everything is just fine! The bungalows are well kept, the beach is still impeccable. Go snorkelling around 7:30 am and you will definitly see turtle swimming around. If not, the... More

We had a wonderful time at Sunset Gecko, because we had done our research and were prepared for the shared bathroom and shower facilities. The restaurant served average meals, but the sunsets make up for everything! The rooms were spacious and clean. We stayed in the Big Hut Top Floor and then one night on the second floor in a...

We really enjoyed staying at Sunset Gecko for the first part of our honeymoon. The staff were friendly, the beach is on the doorstep with some good snorkeling, the atmosphere is so relaxed, the food is tasty - particularly the tuna burgers - and very good value and it is a nice quiet part of the island away from the...

Gili Meno is awesome! Sunset Gecko was a good place to stay on the quieter side of the island... but an easy walk to cafe's. We stayed in the front house and it was good, 2 bedrooms and outdoor bathroom. Hammock on the balcony with view of the water and gili T across the way. Not very mosquito-proof so we... More

I stayed on Gili Meno after a tough three days of Mt Rinjani trek and all I can say is Sunset Gecko was the perfect spot to enjoy some relaxing time. The A frame bungalow was cute and comfortable (I was happy with a fan cooled room) and the staff was nice. I particularly liked the open air showers (ie... More

We stayed here for 3 days and have the biggest bamboo cottage for 4 people. The cottage is great, huge room and huge bathroom. Breakfast was so-so but they have several good restaurant nearby. The view was beautiful from the cottage balcony. Overall, we love it very much.

From the moment we arrive to the moment we departed Gili Meno we had the most amazing stay. The staff there is very laid back and nice, they always help with whatever you could need, one of us had Bali belly and they gave us medicines that helped a lot. The bungalows there are great, we stayed in the biggest... More

We stayed in the A frame bungalow for 1 night. We initially booked 3 nights, but we left after one night to another accomodation on Gili Meno. Reason: The bungalow was too small to move around in, in was very dark and the bed was full of bloodstains from bedbugs. After this one night of actually feeling the bedbugs and... More
