Qunci Villas is always a great option. Same if not less cost.

We stayed at shrraton 2 days ago then moved to qunci villas yesterday. I prefer qunci as its quieter and a more stylish 'boutique' atmosphere. But its out of town so you cant justwalk out to shops & other bars like you can at sheraton. Depends what you are looking for in a hotel - both are nice in their own way.

Just returned from 3 weeks in Lombok / Gillies. Stayed at Sheraton for 3 nights and wish we booked longer as was fully booked out when we had to leave for Gillies and same on return. Most places that were decent on the beach were fully booked. Location is the key for Senggigi. Don't get stuck north in Mangsit as you have to get a taksi everytime you want to head in to Senggigi, albeit cheap (15,000rps one way). Ended up at the the Holiday Resort over x-mas in Mangsit and wish we hadn't booked here at all. Don't get sucked in by the tourist operators for trip to Gillie T. Jump in a cab to port, by tickets from Port Office and jump on the next available outrigger. Dont buy return tickets - keep flexible as you wont want to leave the gillies.

Yes Qunci is an excellent alternative to Sheraton.

It is on a nice beach, there are a 3 local restaurants, 2 on the beach and one on the main road opposite Qunci.

There is a decent small mini mart a little down the road near Holiday Resort Lombok and several warungs, including a substantial one across the road from Qunci.

Qunci has nice pools overlooking the beach, a decent restaurant and beachside bar and is a comfortable boutique style small resort. If you want or need to go into Senggigi it is only a quick taxi ride away.

The website http://www.quncivillas.com/ provides a decent representation of the hotel.
