We we're welcomed by the friendly staff and given a drink whilst booking in. The room was cosy and clean and we felt at home very quickly. The pool is very uninviting but with beach out front we didn't care too much. The breakfast is simple but nice. The menu for other mealtimes is good and we were happy with... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and were initially enticed by the reviews and pictures on here. The hotel is in a good location if you're looking for cheap eateries, lively bars and touristy shops. It isn't quite 'beach front' as there is a road in between whereby horses and carts, cyclists and pedestrians are walking back... More

We have just stayed at Samba for a week, and we can say without a doubt that it was a delight. Our room was great, clean and tidy, well air conditioned, with a very modern interior and a nice patio with cool little bean bags. Everything down to the complimentary daily bottled water and the free beach towels that were... More

Rooms were clean, fully airconditioned, and the TV worked, The snorkeling on the beach in front of the restaurant was fantastic. It is also located in a great place. It is not too far from where the boats... More

We travelled as a family of 2 adults, 1 x 7 year old, 1 x 4 year old. Our room was spacious, water was hot and although the air-con seemed to struggle a little at times, our room was always cool enough to be refreshing. Staff were very friendly and so helpful. The massages were good. The pool was small... More

Great service, the staff and location are what makes this place a great place to stay on gilli T. The fact that you can swim with turtles right out the front of the hotel is a bonus. Would definitely stay here again of I went back to Gilli T.

The air-conditioner for both of our rooms were not cold at all. We have highlighted this to the hotel staffs for several times, however no action has been taken. The staffs only informed us that all rooms was fully booked, therefore no changes can be done. This incident was very dissappointing whereby the treatment that we received was not as... More
