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.
