This hotel is really not as bad as described in some of the reviews below. If you are going to Gili Meno for 5 star comfort, then perhaps you are going for the wrong reasons. The very thing that is so appealing about Gili Meno is that it is off the beaten track, so it is to be expected that you might not have all the comforts of a big resort.
We were on honeymoon in Bali and went to Gili Meno just for the day,having tried and failed to book any accomodation beforehand, the only hotel we had found available was the Gazebo but we had been so put off by the negative reviews. On arriving on Meno we decided to check out the Gazebo just in case and we were very pleasantly surprised, so much so that we decided to stay over (even though we hadn't brought any overnight things with us).
It turned out to be a great decision. Gili Meno was the highlight of our honeymoon and the night we spent at Gazebo was great fun. The accomodation is fairly basic - no hot water (but you don't really need it), but the bed was comfy, the air-con worked great and the bungalow was clean and decorated very nicely with local furniture and pictures. There were a few bugs and perhaps the bathroom towels had seen better days, but it was all clean and perfectly usable. The breakfast was great and the cups and plates were just a bit old, not dirty as mentioned in some reviews. We found the staff very charming and welcoming and also laid back - they let us check out at 2.30 rather than 12 as our boat wasn't leaving until then.
The beach is beautiful and the island stunning. Definitely recommend snorkelling, if you can find Robert who hangs out on the strip of restaurants just after the Gazebo he will take you out for approx 10 EUR each for a 2-3 hour trip with good equipment in your own boat... guarenteed turtles!
Also, there is a small turtle santuary on the island very near the hotel, it is impressive to see the energy that is going into this small, underfunded enterprise. If you can, make sure you donate.
All in all, if you are looking for a friendly, clean hotel with a lovely location the Gazebo would be a good choice.
