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 :)

Very comfortable and well-appointed 6-room hotel with great shaded pool to get away from the midday sun at the beach. Breakfast is at the beach, at the Scallywags Organic restaurant on the beach, a 7 min walk away. It was not easy to find a hotel catering to a family of 4 (children 4 and 6) on the island, but...

Located in the village, a 5-6 minute walk from the beach Scallywags Mango Retreat is a lovely hotel with clean comfortable rooms, great hot showers, private courtyard and a nice pool. The staff are friendly and helpful and on our last day, even carried our heavy bags to the jetty for us. The facilities at the beach-side restaurant, where breakfast... More

We spent 3 nights on Gili Air and chose to spend one night away from the beach to avoid the noisy bars. The rooms each have a gated front courtyard and porch making them very private. The room itself was well furnished and the bed was very comfortable. Large well-stocked bar fridge in the room. The outdoor bathroom was well... More

There are tea and coffee making facilities and a well stocked fridge/mini bar. The hotel is a five minute walk to the Scallywags beach club through the village which... More

Scallywag's Mango Motel is a great budget option on Gili Air. It's only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach & close to cheap & tasty Warungs. Our room was clean, comfortable, bright & the AC was fantastic! Great hot water shower. Staff was very friendly & helpful. We paid 300.000r but noticed the advertised price went up (to 400)... More

Stayed two nights on the motel side of this place. The room was clean, comfortable and had excellent a/c. The location is a bit far from the beach and the walk can be dark and muddy. Good thing about the location is that is quiet and there are cheap warungs close by. I was told when I checked in that... More
