I came to Gili alone, and after being shown the more expensive rooms near the pool, was taken to the "Hideaway". It' in the same complex, but just has a different entrance. WOW - beautiful room, great price, and right off the main road. It was about half the cost of the pool rooms, and though tiny, still had a tv, comfortable bed, and hot shower. I still had access to the pool, DVD collection, and was literally steps from the action. Definitely check it out if you're on a relatively small budget and still want a more upscale room.

The staff were wonderful, and I really go to know them well after a week on the island. The pool area is gorgeous, and anything you need is within a two minute walk. Close to the pubs, bicycle rentals, and pier.

The hotel is great, the rooms are very private and cozy. Especially the outdoor bathroom is cool! The small little veranda outside also adds up to it. Dinner in their beachside restaurant is great too, fish fresh on the bbq! The only remark is that the service in the restaurant isn't all that friendly, they do not really make you feel welcome. I don't believe I have ever seen a friendly smile. Other than this, great place to stay!

we had a great time at Scallywags. the rooms are nice and comfortable, the (outside) bathroom is great. the staff is ok, not superfriendly, but friendly. the food is probably the best on the island. we took the Gilicat boat to the island, i think you'd better book another fast boat.

From the moment we arrived fresh off the boat we were greeted with a welcome drink from the very nice owners and was given a seat whilst they organised our check in and room. Very fresh and clean and cool but at the same time very open which was refreshing. Only steps away from the beach but we loved the pool and the pool chairs... felt like royalty :-) Our room was superb. The decor is 100% taste. Never had a toilet and shower outside befor and it was really a treat ...showering surrounded by lush palms and greenery. The extra touches were very noticable including Australian power points and DVD player etc... Food was great. Their reputation for a good feed is spot on. The open BBQ at night was lovely and you could see it was a very popular place for all the visitors on the Island. The Island itself was also very beautiful. We rode around on our hired push bikes and had to stop at all the bars on the way...so our 1.5 hour trip soon panned out to about 4 hours but it was a lot of fun....a bit sandy in spots but still loads of fun. All in all loved the Island, loved the resort and loved the people.

Room Tip: There is only ten rooms in this resort and its usually booked out...so book ahead if possible.

What a briliant place!
Friendly staff.
Beautiful rooms.
Limited number of rooms so its quite by accomodation and even if everyone was at the pool, there would still be chairs.
Great advice and happy to help with everything.
Lovely restaurant.
Great value for money.
Home comforts if you need.
Aircon.
Clean.
Wifi.
Basically 5 * all round.
TIP : If you want beach, get a bike and ride 5 mins round to south or west side of island, away from bustle.

Room Tip: All are brilliant. Some at front of house have better WIFI reception.
