Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

We plan to book 7 rooms for our group in this May. We choose to call direct to the hotel due to limitation on the website. Hotel website also didn't work.

My call was received by reservation. she pick up my phone, she asked what date is my need and without explained anything she just said "you better send an email" and she was so rude, not polite and unprofessional at all. The way she talk is like a housemaid who in charge in the reservation.

I can't believe this hotel can hired this lady to handle for customers ? Very unprofessional.

Service is number one for hospitality business. Bad service is no no.
I will never stay in this hotel. There are still many hotels to stay and have a manner.

The location is a 5 min bike ride away from the action but especially after staying at other places on the island the rooms and service are well worth the money. Decent bikes are included in the price, breakfast is similar at the in-laws where they can't feed you enough. All staff are so friendly, it's much more like Bali than Lombok. I would definately stay again.

Wifi was good
Pool was nice
Villas are huge
Private pools are nice as well but the chemicals were a bit harsh in ours
Great massage therapists on site
24hr use of basic gym

We stayed for 3 nights in one of the deluxe rooms at this property during mid-April. The room itself was lovely - clean, big and had a great private pool. The other big plus of the hotel is the main 65metre pool that is great for lengths.
However, we do not feel that this hotel justifies its position at #1 - principally because the location is terrible (a 15 minute walk to the main strip, and away from the ocean), and access is appalling (down bumpy / dust paths and passed what is best descriped as "local" buildings (a virtual shanty town)). Food at breakfast was average and the service was average - English skills were limited - and in comparison to other hotels in Bali where the staff wanted to go above and beyond, this was not the case here.
The hotel provides free bikes (all of which are in a state similar to the roads, so basically are terribly uncomfortable to ride, and after 5 minutes you will want to get off - and I say that as a keen cyclist who has been cycling virtually all my life).
The other way to get around is by the donkey-drawn carriages - which we had a real issue with as the poor donkeys are obviously badly looked after, were sweating and some were foaming at the mouth - and we understood their life expectancy was no more than 3 years. We get it that the Gili "islands" are meant to be an escape from traffic etc, but there is no reason to accept such poor conditions for animals.
We spent most of our time towards the southern point of the island - where the facilities are more suitable for "flash-packers" - for instance, Ko Ko Mo is a delicious sea-front restaurant - and would recommend finding a hotel in that part of the island.

We went to book into KoKoMo, which we enjoyed two years ago but thought the menu for pearl looked superior so booked here. The cocktails were great and the service was very friendly (albeit it a little slow but hey we're on holiday). The setting is beautiful and it's nice to be on the water and slightly out of the way of the other restaurants. Unlike us, we chose the asian tapas (we usually have the local food but it sounded irresistible). The portions are big, we got 7 between two and we could have fed four (and are big eaters!) the idea was there but they didn't quite get it right, the seared tuna was over cooked and dry, the squid was over cooked and chewy, the battered prawns were thick with batter. The lamb was absolutely divine, the fritas were great and the pumpkin wedges were pretty good too. Great presentation but overall it didn't wow us, although with a little more care these things could be easily rectified.

The rooms were great, and a staff member brought me water and bread at 2am when I returned home extremely drunk! Great service in that respect.

However, the ladies at the front desk didn't speak good english at all - when she told me they were full the next night, I wasn't able to understand her. I got a big shock the next day at noon when I was evicted from the room!

Recommended, but with a small flaw.

I have no way to compare this hotel to any other hotels on Gili T as this is our first stay on the island. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are nice and big. The staff is also very polite and eager to help and very accommodating.
The pool by the room is great and we spent a lot of time in it.
They also have free movies available at the front desk and we ended up picking up a couple of movies for after dinner.
As other reviewers have pointed out this place is indeed since ways from the harbor. With two kids with bed times around 8:30 we decided to eat in found the food choices to be not so great. It might be catering to people with preference for pastas pizzas and burgers but us trying to find seafood there were limited options and of the options on the menu everything we asked for was not there. I asked for a bottle of shiraz and was asked if I wanted red or white which had me a bit worried about what I'd get.
The water pressure in the room is very very bleak. It's like taking a shower under a drip irrigation system.
The people in the spa are very nice and good but make sure you book based on what you want. We booked a shots for 7 PM and no question was asked. On arriving at the spa we were asked about the option and were told that is not possible because it takes you past their closing time of 9 PM. Just ended up getting a massage for that evening.

All in all its very comfortable and I would say it's a good place to pick if you don't have to eat in at night or are OK with pizza pasta and burgers.
Can't take anything away from the staff great friendly and helpful people.

- Very spacious room (probably it qualifies as a suite), with living room separated from the bedroom
- Pool directly outside the room, very convenient
- comfortable bed, clean bathrooms, good quality towels
- The staff are friendly and helpful
- The owner,Lucio, is on site, and very friendly, chatting with all the guests and help them if necessary
- Free bike rental already included
- Ala carte breakfast (with small buffet area serving snacks and cereals), so the food is made to order. It is a nice touch for the hotel, but I would say that the variety of the buffet can be improved.

- Quite far from the harbor, and the road around the island was very bad, and at night many parts are very dark (not the hotel’s fault), so it can be painful to bike around the island :D
- The water pressure is a bit weak, but still acceptable

Room Tip: Choose the room no 115, at the corner, so you will have a bit more privacy.
