We stayed at Salili Bungalow for 3 nights. The bungalows are basic, just a bed with mosquitonet, a small closet and bedside tables. There is a nice outdoor bathroom and a small porch with chairs in front. The bungalows are clean and have AC, however the sliding doors of our bungalow did not close very well. Even when locked there was a big gap between the doors and the wall and the doors could still move in the frame. This did not look very safe. Two of the electric sockets were not working.
The breakfast is ok, you can choose between pancakes (not the best we have had in Indonesia) or eggs, with fruit juice or fruit salad. The 'orange juice' was actually syrup with ice, the pineapple juice however was fresh. But the fruit salad is a big plate of sliced fruit, definitely the better choice. They serve the breakfast on cute bamboo huts on the beach in front, which is a nice touch.
The staff was not always very friendly. One moment they were attentive, the next actually quite apathic. Our hello's/thank you's were more often ignored than responded to.
The location is quite far from the harbour and most restaurants/bars/shops etc. This can be a plus in high season, because it is then in the quiet area. But we were here in low season when there is actually not much happening anywhere on Gili Air, so then it is just a very long walk from/back to your bungalow. There are many more bungalow resorts more centrally located in Gili Air, with comparable pricing, quality and facilities.
Overall we have had a fairly pleasant stay at Salili, but it is definitely not the best value for money on Gili Air, at least not in low season.
