The rooms are very clean, have all you'd want (aside from a quiet aircon) but aren't close to the beach if that's what you're after. Mind you, it's a 5 min walk so suck it up and go for a stroll fatty. The food/drink at the restaurant on the beach is high quality, and the staff are really great. Best... More

After initially booking 2 nights at Mango Motel we ended up staying for 18 nights. Absolutely loved Mango Motel and Gili Air, very sorry to leave. The Mango Motel rooms are next to Mango Retreat. When you get off the boat take a right and walk along the Main Street until you see Scallywags Restaurant. They will give you a... More

I spent 4 nights in Scallywags Mango Retreat in Gili Air, and it was a perfect stay. The hotel is at about 5 minutes walk from the beach, and 7 from the restaurant where the breakfast is served. The breakfast was good, occidental breakfast with scrumbled eggs, bacon, corn, potatoes, tomatoes, sausages, mushrooms, fresh fruit juice, coffee, tea, muesli, fresh... More

Very good accomodation. Overall friendly staff. Clean Rooms. Nice Pool. Very good Beach Club with nice sunbeds. Unfortunately the accomodation is a Short Walk from the Beach and the scallywags restaurant where breakfast is served. The path is not the most beautiful.

We stayed 7 nights. I've seen some reviews about the staff no cleaning the rooms. I completely disagree, they were fantastic! The staff were friendly and would help with anything. Yes the pool area is small but to be honest, we only went there after having been at the beach all day and just for a dip. There are Mosquitos... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and although it was a good experience, i left feeling that I had paid too much for what I had got. If you are one of the most expensive hotels charging £50 a night on an island where the average is 10-30 I would expect it to be amazing. The room was surprisingly vanilla... More

We stayed in the beach room, which is just off the main Scallywags beach club. The room is well decorated with a nice bed and despite being right next to the beach club, it is actually quite quiet at night as the music stopped around 10.30. The location is great and being next to the beach club and the other... More

The food (lunch/dinner) at the restaurant is really fresh and tasty. Breakfast is nothing special. All the way great costumer service and a real hipster place on a hipster Island. The best thing is Whatever they prominente online, is true When you get here. therefore they get the best stars :)
