We booked an initial 4 nights and returned at the end of our trip for another week. The managers, Sandra and Noel try very hard to run a happy and efficient place in a challenging environment. They were very honest about the construction noise nearby (there is construction everywhere on the island!). The staff is very well trained and work hard to keep an upbeat vibe. The rooms are spacious and clean, but could use some brighter lights. Privacy was not an issue. For the room rate it would have been nice to have toiletries (in refillable containers) and some daily water provided in the room. The complimentary sarongs are nice, but daily towel replacement would have been welcome (without request). The outside patio was a real plus. The provided breakfast was always fantastic, lots of great Lombok coffee, fresh fruit and shakes, and pancakes to dream about. At night the beach restaurant was perfect, and Noel's culinary creations fun, tasty and reasonably priced. Snorkeling was great, many turtles and schools of fish. Bring flip-flops or Crocs to get into the water, (though some are provided for free) as getting into the water at any place on the island usually involves sharp dead coral pieces in the surf. We recommend getting to this part of the island soon, before more resorts open and change the cool vibe.
