We booked at the Waterfront Hotel to base ourselves for the Manta Dive centre next door. Location was fantastic as it was barely a minute to get to the diving school and easy to get to other nearby restaurants. The room was good quality and was cleaned daily to a high standard- we particularly liked the open-roofed shower. The breakfast...

We have stayed here on a couple of occasions and also in the bungalows in the Mata Dive Resort right next door. I just love the place , as I well remember the seemingly narrow piece of land being cleared to build it. Alex the owner designed the garden so well and the layout is so good that the terraces...

The Hotel is part of the diving school Manta dive. The hotel was almost ok but not luxury. The island itself is tiny and beautiful but also basic. It make sense to combine the hotel with the diving center.

This is a nice hotel on Gili Air. The majority of the staff are wonderful and very accomodating. Food is decent and resonably priced. Location is good. Diving operation is professional and friendly. If you are the type of person the needs access to the internet for business or pleasure, this place is not for you. There is I guess...

We stayed at the Waterfront Hotel for 7 nights and enjoyed staying in the cosy bungalow. The bungalow was clean and comfortable with an outdoor shower and toilet. The bungalows are situated in a nice tropical garden and it is not located on the waterfront. We also had an extra bed for our 8 year old daughter. The staff were...

We spent 4 nights at the Waterfront Hotel and it was nice thanks to the room, the personnel and the quality diving center of the hotel. However, we think that there are some points to improve in order to justify a price that we judge too expensive for the prestation... The breakfast was not in line with our exceptions: no...

We only stayed for 3 nights at this lovely property but it was even nicer than the photos. No, the rooms are NOT on the waterfront proper - that is not allowed. We didn't see any accommodation on the island that could be described that way. What we did enjoy each morning was waterfront breakfast in the excellent restaurant. Great...

We have just spent six nights at the Waterfront and loved every second of it - this is a great little place. The rooms are modern and spacious, and impeccably clean, with a gorgeous outdoor shower and huge bathroom. Food at the restaurant is delicious - there is a set menu for breakfast rather than a buffet, and every item...
