Hotel Gazebo Meno
Ranked #7 of 11 Hotels in Gili Meno
Reviewed November 30, 2010

Gazebo has the best spot on gili meno, beautiful beach and the resort has excellent beachbeds. The cabins are very dated, dark inside. Bathroom is open-air with clean shower and toilet. The office is in the back of the garden so sometimes the area looks umemployed. I think it's better to make the office inside the restaurant because this is only used in the morning, The breakfast is OK but there are a lot of flies in the restaurant, fans would be a good solution.
The rate is for gili meno a little high but it gives an excellent spot and a clean beach with beautiful corals in front.
There is also a small saltwaterpool in front of the restaurant. Perhaps a good idea to use it for the turtles saving project because nobody use the pool with such a beautiful beach in front. It's gives the gazebo egological status and that's for now very important
The staff was very helpfull and friendly.

This hotel is really not as bad as described in some of the reviews below. If you are going to Gili Meno for 5 star comfort, then perhaps you are going for the wrong reasons. The very thing that is so appealing about Gili Meno is that it is off the beaten track, so it is to be expected that you might not have all the comforts of a big resort.

We were on honeymoon in Bali and went to Gili Meno just for the day,having tried and failed to book any accomodation beforehand, the only hotel we had found available was the Gazebo but we had been so put off by the negative reviews. On arriving on Meno we decided to check out the Gazebo just in case and we were very pleasantly surprised, so much so that we decided to stay over (even though we hadn't brought any overnight things with us).

It turned out to be a great decision. Gili Meno was the highlight of our honeymoon and the night we spent at Gazebo was great fun. The accomodation is fairly basic - no hot water (but you don't really need it), but the bed was comfy, the air-con worked great and the bungalow was clean and decorated very nicely with local furniture and pictures. There were a few bugs and perhaps the bathroom towels had seen better days, but it was all clean and perfectly usable. The breakfast was great and the cups and plates were just a bit old, not dirty as mentioned in some reviews. We found the staff very charming and welcoming and also laid back - they let us check out at 2.30 rather than 12 as our boat wasn't leaving until then.

The beach is beautiful and the island stunning. Definitely recommend snorkelling, if you can find Robert who hangs out on the strip of restaurants just after the Gazebo he will take you out for approx 10 EUR each for a 2-3 hour trip with good equipment in your own boat... guarenteed turtles!

Also, there is a small turtle santuary on the island very near the hotel, it is impressive to see the energy that is going into this small, underfunded enterprise. If you can, make sure you donate.

All in all, if you are looking for a friendly, clean hotel with a lovely location the Gazebo would be a good choice.

On the positive side; the location is great, the beach in front of the hotel is lovely and it is just a few steps to one of the restaurants of the island. But the hotel itself was not good. the staff wasn't very friendly, the toilet didn't flush and the airco didn't work (no fan) and so we were given another 'gazebo'. And there we had the same problem with the toilet. Breakfast wasn't good, with very dirty cups and not so great food.
Definitely go to Gili Meno, it's a beautiful island, but don't go to this hotel!

If it weren't for the fabulous beaches, there would be no reason to stay in a place like the Gazebo unless you are a hardcore no-frills backpacker. The rooms appear dirty and not well maintained, no phones, no fridge. In fact, we found it to be so bad that we cancelled our stay after just one sleepless night.

The hotel's restaurant offers breakfast only, and the quality is quite poor. Other reviews have mentioned the dirty cups and plates, we can confirm that. If you are brave, take a look at their kitchen equipment, which is rusted and full of stains.

A word to the beach: It is a great beach with fine white sand and crystal clear water with almost no disturbance by the tides. Anyhow, be prepared to be aggessivly approached by many different beach vendors who do not accept a "No". This turned out to be extremely annoying.

On our trip to Bali, we were told that Gili Islands is a must see and for that we have not been disappointed, these are the best beaches we've seen during our holidays with white sand beach and cristal clear water.

But the search for hotels was quite dificult because it is very small with not so many hotels. By browing the net, I found this one which was one of the most expensive I could find but happened to be very basic. The room is a very old bungalows with sea shell decoration, stained and dusty sheets, yellowish towels... The breakfast is just terrible with black stained mugs, undrinkable coffe and very poor food quality.

The only good thing about this hotel is that it has, in my opinion, the best beach of the island and it is quite close to the restaurant area (which is a good thing considering there are no public lights on the streets)
