Great location, especially now the front has been demolished. Sandy beach directly across the road with surprisingly good snorkelling (we saw 3 sea turtles). Rooms are spacious and clean. Bed was lovely and comfortable. Air con was amazing. Wifi was good. Hot water was non existent. Restaurant was pretty average but endless coffee at breakfast was great. Staff were friendly...

Price - 30USD a night in Gili T. is a good bargain. We do not get a swimming pool like other fancy resorts but this is definitely for travelers who don't want to pay for sky high price yet don't want a terrible place to stay. Location - It is 10min walk from the jetty to the resort and located...

We stayed one night in one of the smaller rooms right on the beach/road side. When walking by to inquire about booking for that night, it seemed they just wanted us to book so they told us what we wanted to hear, they told us they had nice hot water, we never once felt any hot water once in the...

Great, friendly staff. That was their biggest plus. We had the bungalows in the back, which were well-secluded (except from the bumping bass on the beach at night). The rooms were quaint and sizable. The place is just fair enough to be kind of at the end of the main drag, so you're away from the central, party area. That...

The place is kind of expensive for a basic lodge close to the beach, there are better options around for the same price. The staff doesn't speak much english, so is complicated communicate with them, ask for rice and get noodles, and so on. The manager is not present all the time, so if you have a problem and he...

Ordered lunch for a family of 5 at their outlet in Gilli T and was not impressed at all. We had 2 fried rice and 2 kebabs which took almost 40 minutes to arrive. We drank beers while waiting for the food and Everytime we tried to get the attention of the waiters to order they would look in out...

Had a wonderful stay at Balenta for 5 nights- 3 adults and one child. Nice and quiet, spotlessly clean, grounds neat and tidy with a team of helpful staff. Spectacular sunsets in the evening and Great snorkelling just in front of bungalows. Highly recommended.

We are a couple that travels & works every day, internet therefore is a must. Coming here after having had a bad experience in one of the neighboring places, we wanted to make sure to have internet throughout our stay. As commonly promised around the island, it was also promised here. We checked with other guests and they mentioned "once...

We enjoyed a lot the calm in this hotel, the staff is nice, the bungalows roomy and almost perfectly clean. The restaurant on the beach is simply great! But the food is a bit basic though. Thanks to the staff!
