Well, where do i start, got to persona having booked a 3 day stay and ended up staying for 10 days. Could not have wished for a better stay, location is in the middle of everything, rooms where spacious and clean, staff where unbelievably friendly and polite. Run by a husband and wife couple, who went out of their way... More

We stayed in Pesona Resort for our honeymoon in 2012 and after 3 years we went back last week with our 2-year old daughter. The place has improved a lot. They even have a dive centre now and a bigger pool. Minor renovation is still on-going but that didn't bother us at all. Stayed at a bigger villa this time... More

We reserved first for 2 nights as we were not sure about the place. We really liked the location, close to main strip and lots of places to eat close by. The Indian restaurant at the hotel was amazing. In my opinion, the staff was not the best but the owner(husband and wife) made us forget about the staff as... More

Thanks for your review but we feel a 3* review is below par considering that you chose to extend your stay with us from 2 to 5 days, surely it must have been better than 3*'s if you still wanted to extend your stay with us with so many other options on the island. We don't have construction at the... More

Stayed here for two nights whilst on gili T. Did an open water course with an English dive instructor named Laura - absolute legend!!!!!!!! So so so nice and taught me so much. As for the rooms, very nice and clean and comfy bed. The food is mostly Indian and is by far the best curry I have tasted in... More

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

Dear guest. During your stay we did have some construction on going which was CLEARLY stated on Agoda and on our booking engine so this should not have been a surprise to you plus you did get a 35 - 40% discount on the room rate to compensate for this at the time of booking, which again was made clear...

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
