Yes, this hotel is not at the seaside. You need to walk for some 5-7 mins but in return it offers 6 cozy rooms and a swimming pool basically at your door steps. With so few rooms, no wonder they don't have a restaurant or a bar. Breakfast is served at Scallywags at the beach where it's best to stay... More

The room was great and clean and the hotel is cosy and intimist. You will not get noise from the bars and restaurants as it is 10 mins walk from the restaurant (very good food by the way). Some negative points: - the swimming pool is here more for decoration rather than real utility as it is quite small -... More

Probably the best place to stay on Gili Air, I loved their clean and airy rooms (we stayed in room #6), the location is also very quiet, and the rooms have it all: aircon, satellite TV, , wifi, bike rentals, mini bar and the only freshwater showers on the islands. We also got a special low season deal on their... More

We were a party of 6 taking three of the six rooms at Scallywags Mango Retreat for three nights. What a treat it was from the beautiful, relaxing setting to very clean rooms, well stocked mini bars and gorgeous semi outdoor bathrooms. Each room very private off a gated wall with outdoor area to bask in. However the pool, semi... More

Gorgeous place to stay - just a little distance from the beach. The rooms are good, linen good and everything clean and modern. Outside bathroom lovely. The pool is really well maintained and a lovely, but small area in which to swim. This is not beachfront. It's above backpacker - but it's below villa quality - at this price you... More

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

Stayed there duribg my visit to Gili Air. The best hotel in town unfortunately the beach arra is 2 blocks away. But the room and service is so good the it is eorth it the walk. The town is caotic and dirty but as soon as you enter any of The Scallywags hotels everything is sparkling clean.
