I recently spent a week at the Persona resort. Overall a good stay, but started off with disappointment. Once i booked, i then checked the reviews and discovered that the hotel was going under reconstruction and did not have wifi. I also read the pool was under construction. I immediately called to cancel. I was told that i could not... More

If you're really into concrete slabs and the sounds of drilling and hammering then this hotel is perfect for you. I booked via Agoda and had no idea that the pool and whole front section of the hotel was under construction - like an actual construction site. The pool was full of concrete and completely empty of water. This was... More

Note!! The hotel is under construction and the work is expected to be finished "sometime in 2015" (quote from a guy in the staff). Thus, you may risk being woken up early by the sound of construction work . That being said, we weren't really bothered by it, but people are different. Thus, if you want to be ensured peace...

We were originally booked to stay here but we literally ran to another hotel when we arrived! The hotel has no pool or beachfront area and the place is completely under construction. We were told the works went on from 8-5 but walked past the next night and it was still happening at 8pm!! Do not stay here if you... More

Dear guest. Yes the pool is under renovation as is the front of the building only. All our services are running as normal and the private beachfront is not impacted as our Indian restaurant and Sheesha lounge is still operating as normal. There is no noise in the rooms and they are not impacted by this as we have many... More

This hotel is a construction site until December. We booked through agoda who were advertising a poolside bar and pool but this is not the case, it is just a pile of rubble. When asking about a refund we were told to contact agoda and later found out that the hotel had emailed agoda telling them we were fully aware... More

Came to find that there was no pools whatsoever. Has been ripped out- staff role me that the pool 'broke' yesterday. The actual bungalows are ok- clean and neat. But no mini bar and the TV is just connected to a DVD player. Also can't access wifi from the rooms, have to be out on the front of the strip.... More

Booked online through agoda and were very excited for a few nights of luxury after 2 months of backpacking. The online pictures looked amazing, the pool had great views of the beach. On arrival it was a different story. In place of the pool was a huge hole and we were welcomed by a construction site. We were not warned... More

We stayed here sept 14. It's in an amazing location and the shisha lounge looks out over the water. Staff are really friendly and their Indian food is the best dinner we had on gili T. Really good cocktails too. Only problem is the whole resort is under construction at the moment. They have ripped the pool and half the... More

Booking website intimated that the room was larger to accomodate 3 people, but it certainly wasnt, a rollerbed was placed in a normal twin room which basically meant you couldnt swing a cat, not good value for the price paid. Also very basic bathroom. Pool area needs overhaul, deck area quite dangerous with loose boards and nails sticking up. They... More
