This was a really great place to stay. Best of all was the friendly tabby cat called Ethel - she loves a stroke. There are loads of cats all over gili air but this well-looked after ball of attention-seeking fur was definitely the friendliest and very healthy. How is Ethel doing vinnie?!

Stayed for 4 nights in the family bungalow. Had a great stay and got good value for money. Was 5 of us in the one room (3 teenage kids - meant 2 kids sharing the 2nd queen bed and one on the top bunk). Enjoyed being in the bungalows close to the restaurant/bar and beach. Felt very safe there as... More

We booked a stay of 6 nights and had to pay the full amount in advance. On the day of arrival the story of disappointments began. We recognized everything could get modernized (new wall painting, cover of sunbed mattress,..) and that the room was not properly cleaned (anywhere dirt and dust, also toilet seat was not clean, dirty mosquito net)....

Hi Maria So where to start with your "complaints", firstly the reason my staff did not want to contact me was the fact that i had just arrived the day before from a long haul flight and was rather jetlagged. I was at the bar of the morning of departure waiting to talk to you regarding your "complaints"after our staff... More

We spend 3 nights in the bungalow which was just behind the kitchen of the restaurant. The bungalows look nice with a thatch roof and an outside bathroom, although everything could be modernized a little bit. The rooms were clean, with a good mosquito net and they made something with flowers on our bed because it was our honeymoon, which... More

We tried the food and drinks in this place and is really worth going, they have fancy drinks, just missed some local drinks with Arak in the cocktail list, but they have some of their own you won't see elsewhere. About the food, we liked it so much that we went back again. I must admit that they did quite... More

Staff were lovely - I was ill, and the owners couldn't have been kinder. We stayed in the rooms closer to the bar - but they are still set back and we... More

Chill Out Bungalows, at least the ones at the beach (there are other bungalows in the center of the islan), is very nice and very centrally located in the main strip of gili air. The bungalows are a bit basic, but ok. We stayed in the family bungalow. Decent shower, ok beds, fridge and airco. Toiletpaper cannot be thrown in... More

We stayed in de family room with 5 for 5 nights. The room is okay. The AC could barely cool the place and wifi is terrible. Maybe it worked 15 minutes a day. Each time I complained they would say maybe in 5 minutes, in an hour, tomorrow it will work. This was bothersome. Just tell us that it does... More
