We stayed at Salim Cottages in Feb/Mar 2020 as part of our 6 weeks on Gili Air. We had a good time at Salim. It worked well for us and our kids. The location - Salim has a great location with easy access to the restaurants to the North East, a very short walk to the bars down the South East and an easy walk to the main drag's shops and restaurants. This was key for us as we found that our small kids could not walk more than 15 mins around the island in the heat. Directly outside Salim there is great snorkelling and when the current runs South, it is a great drift down to Scalliwags. We saw turtles and a sea snakes here. There is also an ATM two doors down which is convenient (although our cards were cloned on one occasion here!). Accommodation includes breakfast and a free water in the room. The room was large (for the price) and had a deck. The 3 choices of breakfasts are fine and a decent size. Meals can be taken upstairs, by the beach or by room. We found that lunch choices were good but we chose not to have evening meals at Salim often as there food options elsewhere seemed preferable. The staff are friendly and helpful. The pool is good size and located close to the rooms. We found though that the pool went through our rashies pretty quick and our shorts etc had a nice green hue! The gardens around the rooms are well kept but there were quite a lot of mozzie - but they did spray regularly. Our experience of the place was that it was quiet and peaceful (although we left Salim and Gili about 2 days before the March close down happened so this may be the reason for its extremely peaceful vibe). The area for improvement is the WiFi. The bandwidth is slow so downloading and streaming was impossible but browsing was fine. But, the WiFi was often dropped and, because the system required a web login, we had to enter the password numerous times a day which was slightly annoying (first world problems eh!) We'd def stay at Salim again. They looked after us in our 3 weeks and were kind to our kids.

The hotel itself is simple and basic. The staff is nice but slow. The breakfast is horrible. 5 options, 4 of them is crap. Pancake is hard like a tire. The Jample has nothing inside. Find other hotels that actually serve normal breakfast
