This review is of a visit in March 2013 by a couple in their late 20s/early 30s.
Adeng adeng well may be the best place on the island of Gili Meno! Fantastic, beautiful grounds set back just far enough from the beach give the place a romantic hideaway feel, but the beach and several other hotels and restaurants are just a short walk away. This side of the island is the best for viewing sea turtles. If you want to get to the more populated side of the island, it's about a 20 min walk along the beach (or an $8 cyclo ride). For us, the Adeng Adent was at a perfect location. We wanted a quiet, relaxing visit to the island without the distractions of the mainland.
The staff is absolutely incredible -- the best I've ever met! They work incredibly hard to make sure your stay is wonderful. If you need anything, they are quick to serve you. All the staff knew our names after the first day!
The rooms were very clean. We appreciated the nightly turn-down service. The air conditioner worked well to keep the room cool: but if no one stayed in the bungalow the night before, it might take awhile to cool off. I enjoyed the outdoor shower (it was enclosed, so still private).
Breakfast was delicious with a considerable variety. The lunch/dinner food was also very good and inexpensive. We enjoyed milkshakes in the evening!
The wifi worked best in the restaurant area and was spotty in the bungalow. We didn't mind though because we came here to leave the rest of the world behind.
The only disappointing thing about our stay was the beach, which was ungroomed (as of March 2013) and not set up for guests. It was full of shells and it hurt REALLY bad to walk on. The 4 chairs on the beach were wooden and set at an uncomfortable angle. There was no beach bar. The owner told me this is due to zoning regulations that he is trying to fight so that the beach can be used properly. We walked 5-8 min (to the left as you leave the Adeng Adeng), bought cheap drinks at one of the several warungs to use their beach chairs all day. For us, it was well worth it to walk the 5-8 min each day because the Adeng Adeng's property was that much superior to the other properties we saw. If the beach were cleaned up and able to be used fully, I would give the Adeng Adeng a 5.
