We booked the room with AC. It was big and spacious and the AC worked well (room 3). There were no places to store your stuff or unpack except for on the floor but that didn't really bother us. The bathroom is outside and was nice enough. The staff was super friendly and breakfast was good. We didn't eat at...

I stayed there for 4 nights in the fan room. POSITIVE: Fan was very powerful so easily kept the room chilled during the night. Nice garden. Mosquito nets. Friendly and happy staff. NEGATIVE: The place is very overpriced (low season price). The room and bathroom are very basic. I stayed in similar poor huts before for 1/3 of this price....

Booked directly through their website 1 month before our stay and booked an AC room for 3 nights. Contacted the hotel to confirm our reservation 2 nights before our stay and they said that an AC room was no longer available and we would have to stay in a fan room. No reasoning was given for this change and no...

This facility consists of a restaurant directly at the beach with the hotel bungalows slightly moved in land. Our feeling, based on our fan-cooled wooden bungalow, is that in its present condition this facility comes closer to backpacker level than to "resort" level. Also the access to the premises would benefit from some decoration. Location is great, half way the...

We loved staying here again. After 5 years, still the same manager, who is friendly, fun and efficient. The restaurant food is fantastic and the staff are always up for a chat and a joke. Good snorkelling straight out the front. Fan bungalow is fine for us - just let your body adjust to the heat. Room very clean and...

I stayed there 4nights and it was great. Walking distance to the beach and restaurants/bars. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice. They cut the fruits in funny shape every morning which means they put the effort to prepare it. I had a room with fan for one night and couldn't sleep due of the insects, heat and animals...

Please note: We traveled there in 2010 and 2012. We stayed at Gili Air Santay twice - Oct 2010 and Sept 2012. We had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed it. The bungalows are comfortable and clean, the restaurant is situated by the beach with a great view. Rosi, the owner ensured that all food we ordered was vegan. It...

Very recommended! We stayed 3 nights and we really enjoyed our stay. Bungalows are situated in very quiet area, are well equipped with open bathroom. Local restaurant is great, cheap food and drinks which you can enjoy right on the beach from a spacious box (we particularly enjoyed their sandwiches and pad thai noodles). It has the best location, because...

The place of the bungalows is nice: In the middle in a garden and you can see a strip of the sea. The room is okay, nothing special, very rustic. The bathroom is terrible. Lots of ants nests right next the toilet and you just have brackish water- so after showering you still smell bad and after snorkeling we tried...

Searching the beach on Gili Air we were dismayed to find most places full or only starting at 300k and up. Gili Air Santay was the cheapest place we found on the beach at 250k for a fan bungalow including breakfast (we did hear that if we had searched further inland, there were good deals to be had in the...
