The accommodation is shocking, i go camping all the time and would prefer that than be in a old shack, we paid about $1200 for 2 people for... More

I stayed at Joyos in late august for surf trip, and was blown away by how cool surf camp was. The waves, the food, service were all top notch. The owner replies to emails ASAP and is super accommodating. Their fast boat transfer is a must. Their airport/hotel transfer service is spot on. The staff were super friendly and helpful... More

Have bee coming to G-land for over 10 years now and aways stayed at Joyo's. In the last few years the camp has improved a lot. All rooms have been refurbished, the gardens look beautiful and the food outstanding. Breakfast is probably one of the best I have had in Indonesia, Jibut the breakfast chef simply cooks everything to perfection,... More

The place is awesome in its simplicity. You want plasma tv- go somewhere else. You wanna take a boat to the waves so you don't have to paddle? go somewhere else. You want a choice of fabulous restaurants and groovy bars? Go somewhere else. You want an amazing experience, a little bit of work to get there, a little bit... More

Do not stay here. Shocking camp and I guarantee that you will be disappointed. Stay at Raymond's or Bobby's camp, just don't stay here. Don't let them sweet talk you into going to stay there - pay the same (or maybe a little more) to stay at the other camps. Joyos you get fed next to nothing. Breakfast is pretty... More
