“On the main road, nosy morning and indifferent staff.”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

I write this review sitting at the restaurant of 7SEAS Cottages. The woman serving us breakfast is acting as if she is doing us a favor. Kept telling us what we could not have as opposed to what we could get in breakfast. Yes, its free breakfast but why the attitude?

I got woken up at 7am by nosy staff members and all the morning activity involved with getting the place running (I guess). Considering they knew we were staying in the cottage right next to the reception and restaurant, they could have been quieter. There was more noise from the staff joking around and conversing than from the normal activity on the road at that hour.

Some positives that sold us on the place: clean towels, room and spacious bathroom. No fresh water is provided (even in a bucket for rinsing, brushing, etc like other places seem to offer) but that's to be expected on Gili Air. The beachfront restaurant gazebos are nice and looking out onto a quiet, beatiful stretch of beach...good place to chill and surf wi-fi read etc.

But getting woken at 7am by noisy staff and a waitress who was completely indifferent to us killed my desire to stay here longer or return. Its a shame because the place has potential but won't go far unless they hire friendlier staff who have even some degree of hospitality.

We really liked this villa, the best room we had on the Gili Islands actually. We stayed in June for 3 nights for 350,000 per night in a fan room, number 3 and believe it was excellent value for money. It was close to the pier but only a few minutes walk to the Chill Out Bar (great food) and Zipp Bar (great happy hour). It was so quiet we heard no noise whatsoever at night, no mosque, no roosters and no music. The rooms were extremely large, the bedroom and the bathroom. The bed was huge, and both rooms had so many shelves to put unload all your pack. There was also a wardrobe and desk and a day bed on the patio with a gate providing our own private enclosure with outside table chairs and sun umbrella with colourful flowers and trees growing along the top of the fence. The shower had hot and cold fresh water and also a fresh water swimming pool (a rarity it seems on this island). It is attached to a dive business, we stayed across the road from a restaurant, but this end is only busy during the day so it was very quiet. Great options for breakfast. There was a fridge, ceiling fan and portable fan, free WIFI. They also make up your room daily. Was sad to leave but wanted to try the nightlife at the other end of the island so needed closer room, but once we left we found more nightlife at Chill Out, Zipp and Scallywags than the other end, so we may be going back!
