We stayed just one night...we choose to get out from amber house because we're not happy with the staff, the maintenance and the cleanliness of the place. We moved to other bungalows much better in Gili Meno for 4 nights more, with much better conditions with same price or cheaper. The worst thing was to find BEDBUGS...We attached 2 photos... More

We stayed here by making reservation with Airbnb. I never had to write a negative review about any Airbnb place and we have used almost 58 of these in the past. We travel more than 260 days a year. I would like to write the positives first. As a lot of people mentioned here, the staff are very friendly like... More

On an unplanned trip to Meno, we only browsed for place to stay when we're waiting for the rare boat to island. It was an easy decision then to pick this place based on traveller's reviews. Overall, we got much more than we paid for. Basic cottage with no fresh water is okay. Staff are so-so. Hammock is additional pleasure.... More

A little bit of a walk from the harbor, but doable. Easy to find, and the bungalows were right on the beach (which is beautiful). Ours didn't have any problems. they have mosquito nets, which are very important! Use them! Hammocks were also on all the porches. They rent out pretty decent snorkels as well. The food there is a...

Without us knowing our cottage was devised halfway into two separate units. This really reduced our privacy a lot. Breakfast was not included but the amber house sold a really expensive rather crappy breakfast. We also had separate beds which we not what we expected. Besides this the staff was friendly.

Location is fine. but be aware that Gili Meno climate can be very very hot (as it was early Nov)... We didn't sleep well because the fan was not enough when the temperature is still 25/27°C in the night - you sweat on the part which is on the mattress side... I was also a little bit disappointed by the... More

Gili Meno is a wonderful little island with some great snorkelling. Amber House is on one of the best beaches and we really enjoyed seeing the fish and the turtles. Unfortunately we were very disappointed with the accommodation. Basic doesn't begin to describe it - cold water showers, salt water shower, no basins, three of the five huts have 'Asian... More

Amber House is located in the best snorkelling area of Gili Meno, just in front of the bungalows. Room simple but with all that you need. Very comfortable the beach umbrella and chairs seafront. But the strong point of Amber is the food, really gorgeous. Many dishes on the menu, from breakfast to dinner. Terrific vanilla ice cream with almonds... More

Thank you Aki and Lee for your warm hospitality at Amber House. It was the highlight of our journey, such a serene and beautiful environment. Food is great and snorkelling magical. Simple and clean bungalows with amazingly helpful staff, Zili, Abib, Zaini and the ladies in the kitchen, and anyone who's names we didn't write down. You all made it... More
