My husband and I stayed at Windy Beach for 4 nights after traveling around Bali. It is siutated on a nice stretch of beach apart from the other hotels. There are 14 rooms and even when full, it never felt crowded. We stayed in the Special Cottage, which was a hut with a sitting room and (indoor) bathroom downstairs, and a bedroom and balcony upstairs. The hut was large, but definitely older and in need of updating. We had hot water, although I was only able to activate the water heater about 50% of the time. There was also an AC unit on both floors and a mosquito net on the bed. There were a fair amount of ants in the bathroom, but I realize it's near impossible to keep bugs out.
The staff was very friendly and arranged a tour to North Lombok as well as a boat ride to Gili Trawangan for us (it picked us up right on the shore of the hotel). They called us taxis into Senggigi, which was very cheap (and most restaurants provided transport back). We mostly ate lunch at Windy Beach, which was standard, and went to dinner in Senggigi. They also have wifi, although it is inconsistent.
It was a nice place to relax and get away, just don't expect anything fancy or new. We did enjoy the open huts along the beach- they are elevated and covered, so they provide great shade for lounging.
