Our family of 4 stayed for 3 nights at Cocotinos Sekotong in June 2013. Overall, we would say that the hotel is well designed and the staff do try to provide good service. The place is fairly quiet and very accessible if you are looking to visit the Southern Gili Islands (Nanggu, Gede, Rengit), they even have a private jetty that make boarding and unboarding from the boats much more convenient. The beach is a great place to walk in the late afternoon during the low tide as you can find all kinds of sea creatures in the shallow water. The only real problem we have is the lack of attention to cleanliness in our rooms and also in the spa treatment. We took a massage and scrub at the spa. Whilst the massage was good, the therapist did not bother to wash our feet or cover our hair, so she struggled with pulling away our hair each time it got in the way of the massage. Neither did she bother to ask if the massage pressure was suitable or if she should turn down the air-con in case we felt cold without our clothes. After applying the scrub, we struggled to the shower room with bits of scrub falling all over the floor to take a shower. We stayed at the Rinjani Suite and for the first two nights, there were mozzies and we had to put down the mosquito net. The cabinet and sink in the bathroom were dusty and so was the bed (see photos attached). We were told that the resort was fairly new - less than 3 years old, but it sure didn't seem like it. The final straw came on our final night at the hotel. My husband was woken up in the middle of the night by a large rat (a little less than 30cm) that was scurrying around on our bed and accidentally bumped his face. And we did not bring any food to our bedroom at all, except for bottles of mineral water! We reported this to the staff at checkout the next morning but they seemed pretty nonchalant about it. Not sure if this was because they couldn't understand English that well or didn’t find it surprising to be woken up by a rat, the counter staff was not at all apologetic for the disturbance. We also spoke with the owner who happened to be there, and he said he had not encountered such rat incident before. Overall, a good location for water activities but unless the level of cleanliness improves, we won't be going back anytime soon. The room rates are not cheap, so we would have expected much better quality than what we got.
