We had a fan room and it was a bit too hot, if i went back i would pay more for air con. The staff were really friendly and helpful, we rented bikes and organised a snorkelling trip around all 3 islands with them. The shower is good and room is ample size. Lovely to have breakfast on the balcony... More

I am convinced that Ricel homestay is the very best on Gili T. Nice, simple and clean rooms. Great surroundings, and the most friendly and helpfull staff ever. My friend and I wanted to rent bikes, and 10 minutes later the staff had gotten us the bikes, and returned Them afterwards as Well. They serve amazing banana pancakes as Well!... More

I stayed here for a few nights over New Year and it was EXTREMELY overpriced for what it was. Small rooms, without wardrobes and cold water showers. I have stayed in much cheaper places in other countries, but we bit the bullet with this place because we needed somewhere to stay over new year. If you have more choice, find... More

Firstly this is an perfectly adequate homestay, staff are super friendly, the room is a good size for two people, good breakfast, nice little garden, and it's nice and quite! Perfect for a nice couple retreat. Few minor issues though, we'd a basic fan room and in a triple room it was just way too hot without a/c, it's a... More

We stayed here for 11 days on the recommendation of our son and didn't really know what to expect as our ideas differ markedly at times. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised how spacious and modern the room was and it was nice and bright with a good fan and air con. We had been warned about the mosque and... More
