We stayed in March in Scallywaggs Gili Tr.Big value for money:clean room with a wonderful outdoor shower.
Facilities like the very reasonably priced minibar and the possibility to go Gili Air with their own transport were enjoyable extra 's
One remark:quality of the menus in restaurant can be improved:but overall we come back!

Room Tip: Ask a room far from the generator which is rather noisy

rooms are great, service is perfect, minibar is enabling, bathroom is an outdoor island jungle with western amenities, restaurant is the best on gili t; we were more than satisfied & i wouldn't even look to stay anywhere else next time we hit the gili's. ps. try a mojito, they are unmatched.

We liked Scallywags restaurant on Gili Air very much so we decided to visit also Scallywags resort on Gili Trawangan. The place is great with good atmosphere and really professional service. We liked the open air bathroom with organic soap, fast internet with your own inroom router, good cappuccino for breakfast, private veranda in front of the room, etc...
Very good value for money. And yes, this is probably the only place where they don't put additional tax and service charge on top of your bill. And that is something other hotel and restaurant owners should learn from Scallywags.

Our standard room at Scallywags was good for a stay in Gili T - located on the main strip, it is walking distance to snorkeling areas, restaurants and sights. The air con in the room was great, so refreshing to have a cold room after a sweaty bike ride! Also enjoyed the outdoor bathroom. Staff were friendly and the pool was good, although starting to wear out a little. The restaurant provided good breakfast (banana pancakes a favourite) and tasty lunch wraps. We enjoyed watching the boats arrive in the mornings while eating breakfast. We were however, a little underwhelmed with the seafood BBQ and I must note that my partner became very ill the morning after eating dinner here, which really put a negative spin on our visit. Overall a pleasant stay, just wish we could have avoided the stomach upset!

We stayed here originally for 2 nights, but we booked an extra night at Scallywags because it was so nice being on this Island in this accomodation!

The hotel organised out whole trip van Bali to the Gilis and back by fastboat, taxi's everything!
The welcome was very warm, with a nice fresh squeezed juice and the service of the manager and the staff was very kind and helpful!
Wifi everywhere, the location is very central and the rooms are amazing! Especially the bathroom outside, so romantic!
The place is clean and they have a great bbq in the evening with fresh fish and lobster!

I would definitly come back to this place. For us it was a piece of paradise on a paradise!

Thanks Scallywags, we enjoyed every second of our stay!

This was my third stay at Scallywags and we had a great stay again.

The location is really good - quiet enough if you want to relax but close enough to the action if you want to party.

The food is still pretty good, particularly the seafood and the chicken fajitas, although the buffet breakfast seems to have gone downhill a bit.

Yes the showers are randomly hot and cold but that's what you get on an island of this size.

Only one small issue the pool bar never seemed to be staffed as it has been on previous stays but it wasn't the end of the world.

The staff were all lovely, Nanang was so helpful with our travel plans. We would definitely come back again.

I'll make this short sweet. Only stopped for lunch and was let down. I ordered a grange chicken sandwich and got bread with a little lettuce. There was a thin slither of chicken and it wasn't good.

Wouldn't recommend.

Although the staff were lovely
