Just got back from a fantastic stay! After reading the reviews before i went i was very surprised when i got there. Not sure if they have recently changed the accommodation as it isn't what's described in the lonely planet:
The staff are incredibly friendly and relaxed.
We were pleasantly surprised that we had a fresh water shower. We stayed in bungalow number four, which has a four poster bed with mosquito net, seating and a hammock on the front terrace and en-suite shower room with a western toilet. There's another bungalow of the same size and a large one which seems perfect for families. The sunbeds for communal use at the front, on the beach are a nice touch too.
Could not have asked for a better location. short walk to the 'busy' area of the island by the harbour and a short walk to some nice cheap restaurants on the north side. Directly in front of Amber House is perfect snorkelling.
The food was good- best banana pancakes in Lombok and Bali. We only ate breakfast and lunch here as it was a bit pricey for our budget and there are lots of nice cheap little warungs.
Those who complain about no pool or activities should really not go to Gilli Meno! It has sea and sun. Blissfully quiet. Best location for couples and those seeking relaxation. If you want entertainment go to Gili Trawangan. Oh and ofcourse it's not going to be cleaned during your stay. Its not a hotel!! But you can ask the staff for more toilet paper or anything you require and he will help.
The price that we paid for our three nights stay was a bargain.
Thank you so much for a wonderful few days!!
