Twelve people consisting of 2 families with older teenagers, we rented four bungalows plus Mangku and Mahi Mahi rooms, we liked the old style of this resort and especially the outdoor bathrooms, I think they could put fridges & a TV with DVD players in the rooms for the price that you pay, the other disappointing aspect was none of the water features were operating, besides breakfast which we really enjoyed by the sea under the cool trees and lull of the ocean they had nothing to order off their main menu, every day we wanted to eat at the hotel and had to go somewhere else.....such a shame, the hotel was full and they could of had the basics on the menu. We liked the cool swimming pool and the staff were very delightful to talk to. The distance from the main action of town did affect some of our members of the family, especially when some us got sick or it rained(monsoon like), but for me personally it didn't bother me at all as I like to ride a bike and be away from the crowds. Its old style here with the mozzie nets, squeaky floorboards, bugs and chunky carved bali style furniture, we liked all of the rooms, I stayed in the Mangku room which is upstairs above the Mahi Mahi room, it felt very private with a day bed on the veranda, the air-conditioning wasn't fantastic but did the job. There is a lot of choice on the island for accommodation, I really think it comes down to the noise factor, I wouldn't recommend putting extra beds in a room due to the mosquitos, you really need the net. We enjoyed a four day stay. You need to like walking or cycling to stay here, the track into town at night is very dark and sandy until you get to the main track into town, the locals are fantastic, the horse and cart guys are really bad, they need to change this aspect of the island. Overall we had mixed feeling for Trawangan, I liked it but its not for everyone, the boat trips over isn't to crash hot either so be fussy on what boat you pick. I was the only one out of the group that would consider going back to Gilli T, I appreciated the old style like Bali used to be in the 80s and 90s:)
