We Booked here as the last five days of our honeymoon. When we arrived everyone was really friendly and our bed was beautifully decorated with local flowers. We got a great deal direct with them that meant if we did five or more dives with them we got discounts off food, our hut and our dives.
The people who run it were really friendly and really cared about the environment. The diving was great too and really close so you can fit in lots of dives. We also popped over to Gili T for the day and the Manta people on that island let us borrow a locker for the day so we could go snorkelling. I wouldn't bother going to Gili T though it wasn't a patch on Gili Air, we wish we'd given Gili Meno a go instead.
The snorkelling was good on Gili Air too and Manta's located well for this too. We walked up the beach early in the morning, swam out and then drifted down to the sandy bit further down. We saw loads of stuff just snorkelling (Turtles, trigger fish, box fish, sweetlips, moray eel).
The food was good at the Manta place and very reasonable. There was a good money exchange place next door too if you have left over bits of currency.
I would recommend booking before you go especially if you want one of the huts because they get booked up early. We met a nice couple that were staying in the garden room for their first night and then a hut for their next 7 nights and they said they were nice and clean just had less character.
