Probably my favourite place on the planet. It's not often you can go to a place and feel so at home. The staff are amazing and the facilities are great. You are so close to the beach you could role out of bed and make a splash (well maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit it is no more than a...

We stayed in one of the bungalows at the front of Gili Smile and couldn't have been happier with our experience. Rendhy, Ryan and the rest of the staff were absolutely flawless and their customer service was second to none. They gave us some great recommendations on where to eat, what to do, which were the best dive schools etc....

We began in the Gili Smile Homestay, then moved to the Bungalow right at the front, much roomier, cooler and very quiet. We enjoyed a good sleep, tasty breakfast and enjoyed the beach chairs provided on a great swimming spot on the beach.

Positive: The bungalow looked nice, bed with mosquito net, beautiful bathroom, nice porch and perfect location! Right at the ocean, but bungalows not facing the main street. Breakfast was yummy! The people we talked to were nice. Negative: Apart from being nice when talked to, the staff didn't do much. The bungalow was already dirty when we arrived, looked like...

I almost searched the whole island; from small village houses to big shiny beach resorts and to airbnb listings, for a clean and affordable place near the beach. If not the best, this one is among the top 10. They offer two kinds of rooms. The cheaper one is a small room with regular fan, cold water shower, mosquito net...

We didn't stayed at the bungalow - we stayed at the home stay but the reception is the same. The guys there are really friendly and doing their best to make your stay comfortable. Next to the reception is a booking office where we booked our Rinjani Trek and the boat from Lombok to Bali - we really got the...

I actually ended up leaving my Gopro camera in the room on leaving the island and I was blown away by the kindness of Rendhy who had it returned to me back in Bali at no cost. This undoubtedly proves the staff here are good people and can be totally trusted. This hostel is somewhere I would definitely stay in...

Cute cottage for our first night on Gili. Nice staff, Randy and Ryan. No wifi in the bungalows, but can get it out by the street if you need. Clean, quite cute bathroom. Towels and toothbrushes included. Far too hot at night for two people with a single floor fan. Thick big net helped avoid bugs, but trapped in the...

This place is very beautiful and nice. The staff is friendly and the room and bathroom very clean. The breakfast is the best, on the beach and try the banana pancakes! Definitely I recommend this place to stay. This place is located front to the beach.
