“Bedbugs...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

This resort is very expensive in comparison to other places on the island. 4 of us stayed here and when we tried to check in they had us down for the wrong dates - I had to prove to them that we had booked our dates by showing them my confirmation email. They were fully booked but eventually found us a room. 1 of the rooms had bed bugs. A bad case of them too. They allowed us to move room but had guests back in the infested room within an hour or 2. Breakfast was good. The rooms weren't that clean- especially the shower. Pool was nice but on the small side.

Good day sorry you didnt enjoy our resort. Few points though is that you came in busy season and based on demand our room prices are a little higher but you will not find the same services, wifi, pool, location, AC for less money anywhere on the island especially during busy season. In fact the reason you state "Bed Bugs" is because we are cheaper and A group of backpackers (always budget conscious) was staying here before you. The reason we were able to turn the room over again as we had a spare bed to fully replace in the said room

I was supposed to stay 2 nights but left after 1!

Floor was filthy!! Oily and disgusting. Shower was a flooded mess upon arrival. Lightbulb didnt work.

Lady at the counter didn't tell me anything - no wifi passwords, instructions or details about breakfast. Was as if I was bothering her when I had a question.

Breakfast was just ok. The pool is quit nice - great location.

But for the price? No way!

Good day,
We are very sorry you didnt enjoy your stay as most of our guest do. I will speak to our reception as they are supposed to escort you to your room and supply all the details. As for the room, Being environmentaly friendly we turn off the AC when not in use. Cold Tiles plus our humid climate= water droplets on the floor. No oil. As for being a "flooded mess" we did allow you to check in early and the room boy just mopped the bathroom and didnt have time to dry. Once again sorry you were dissapointed but as you can see by the last comments weve had, as well as most of your other accomidation reviews you are hard to please and hope you give us another try at some point.

Arrived on the island, We were tired and was looking for a place to stay when we saw Gili T Resort near to the jetty. We stayed here for one night. This location is in the middle of Gili Trawangan. Great location. Trust me, You wouldn't be disappointed. Staff were super friendly, Ushered us to our room. The room have cable service and basic necessities.They have a pool for adults and a mini pool for the kids. The restaurant was stunningly beautiful, it's faces the sea and serves delicious food. Recommended for families with kids. Overall I loved my stay in Gili T Resort and I hope to come back again.

Found this by luck through agoda and its not the most flashy, it has very comfortable rooms, nice tv and AC and especially the pool! Great little a la carte breakfast, I saw many guests from other villas come to enjoy it even. Definitely a great location, extremely friendly staff, the new owner is a nice accommodating guy. As I said its not the ritz but for this price range it deserves 5*

Room Tip: Beware of the art market food next door. Dangerous conditions

Stayed here for two days and was really impressed with this place. The price is very reasonable for what you get. The location is smack in the middle of Gili Trawangan's main strip, at a perfect distance from all noisy elements (late-night bars, reggae bars and mosques) which means everything is at a leisurely walking distance but no waking up in the middle of the night. There is a good sized pool and lots of sun loungers in the garden.

The breakfast is really, really good there. You have a number of set menu choices to choose from and I went for the three egg omelet with three ingredients each time (cheese, bacon and tomato). This came with toast, orange juice and tea and/or coffee.

The food in general is really worth trying. I ate there both days (pork chop one night and cheeseburger the other) and really liked the food. The staff there are always a pleasure.

The rooms are large with warm, fresh water showers (both of which are not a given on the island of Trawangan), large soft beds, in room safe, TV and fridge..

All in all, a really good place to stay!

The resort has a great location on the island, situated on the jetty. Food is delicious and overall it is great value for your money.
The staff are friendly and helpful, and most importantly the beer is cold!

I was attracted to staying here by it's convenient location (right next to the Jetty). The price was far less than I expected to pay too. I stayed on the upper floor at the back by the pool. It was quiet, and overlooked the pool area. That whole area is beautifully landscaped with lots of colorful plants and flowers. The pool was a real treat and so relaxing!.
The room was a good size and though the furniture is older, everything was very clean. The A/C unit was very quiet--that's a plus wherever you stay!. Staff were efficient and willing to satisfy every request.
Linens were clean and replaced daily. I suggested they also provide hand towels, and I understand the new owner is ordering them.
I was very comfortable and as a female solo traveler, I appreciated the fact that I felt safe and well cared about during my week long stay.

I definitely would stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back, though all rooms are well set back from the street. Shutting the bathroom d...
