I didn't stay at Trawangan Dive (we stayed at Ozzy's bungalows right next door) but did a rec dive there and it was a great choice. All the dive centres on Gili T charge the same (370,000 for a dive and then a compulsary 50,000 eco tax per diver for your first dive), so it's definitely worth picking a decent dive shop.
We were attracted to this place because of the lovely setting - fab pool with a swim-up bar, lovely gardens with lots of tables and chairs. The managers and staff were all friendly and super chilled out. Our instructor James took my friend and I out, told us about the place we were going, what to expect in terms of the current (very strong at the time) and we had a really fun dive. The equipment was all in good condition, set up for us by the staff and the boat crew helped us on and off the boat on the beach and at the dive site.
The credit card machine was broken when we went to pay after our dive so they told us to come back another time - we completely forgot until we were leaving the island 3 days later - they are very trusting! But obviously we did go back and pay...who wants karma coming after them?!
All in all a great diving experience - although I obviously can't comment on the accomodation.
