“Total disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2009

Situation is ideal. Rooms very, very basic and not particularly clean and not well maintained.
Had a very nasty experience with the "Owner". An Australian who stays there for extended periods of time so I am told.
The manager was very accommodating, I felt very sorry for him. Other staff not so good.

This hotel was the same price as amazing hotels in Bali that we had stayed at. Malias Child is dirty and gross. It was like camping in a tent. The sheets were dirty. The towels were like rags. The bathroom plumbing leaked. There were tons of insects in the room. I have nothing good to say about this hotel. If you are looking at staying on Gili Menos I would recommend the Nautilus. I wish we would have stayed there for the extra money.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2008

This had a superb setting even if the site was a little basic. The individual cabins are located right on the beach--lovely sand--you could hear the waves crashing all night. The toilet was a 'fill the bucket' to flush. The shower was hot in the afternoon when the sun had heated the rooftop resevoir. The bed was comfortable, the furniture very basic. Like all Indonesian hotels we were in, the electric light was poor.
The hotel was part of a tour or we would never have got to Gili Islands. But it is worth the trip. The food at the restaurant was excellent and you could eat right on the beach--at high tide, the tables had to be moved back!
Snorkeling is possible in front of the hotel but the current is swift so it is a quick snorkel and swim like mad back to the beach then walk up the beach and do it again. Fun but not for the weak swimmer. Probably best at high tide.

  • Liked — Great Beach Location
  • Disliked — Poor reading light
