We have stayed 3 times before at Scallywags and they were all good. This time it was terrible. We arrived at the reception were there was nobody, after texting them someone came. No warm greetings, no welcome drink, not even asking how our trip was. Not how we are used to being greeted in Bali. We were the only occupied room in the hotel, the room itself was ok, but not very clean. We went to the pool and within 30 minutes we were bitten by insects. Also the pool and the pool beds were dirty. Instead of staying 5 days as planned we left after 1 day. We complained at the reception but they just said take the complaints to the company were we booked the room. Not recommended
Great atmosphere and show. The food is generous, fresh and healthy. Highly recommended. A good place for breakfast, lunch or dinner and perfect for families. I can't recommend Scallywags enough.......
We are here twice and enjoyed each visit. Good location and staff were friendly. Had some tapas for lunch which were more than enough (mushrooms on bread in a creamy sauce and fish taco’s)plent of vegetarian options. Would definitely go back
The food was great food cocktails and the place is a must on gilli air awesome vibe and good music playing in the back really a gem on the island and worth a meal and a couple of strong cocktails on the beach . The staff are also really friendly.
This hotel is lovely if you want complete privacy. The courtyard to each room is behind a locked door and we would have liked somewhere a bit more sociable. The room however was beautiful, minibar was very well stocked and bathroom was fantastic. However, it was at least a five minute cycle to breakfast and the pool was quite shaded. The hotel was lovely but we would have liked to have been somewhere where we could sit on our patio and people or view watch! It was extremely luxurious though.
My mom and I stayed here for over a week and this place was very nice. We extended our stay, a few times, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The beach chairs are nice and they have plenty of amenities. The room was a good size and the private patio was very nice. The breakfast was decent and it was. Ice to get some bread that wasn’t that plain white bread. They also helped us book a boat back to Bali, which made things a lot easier.
Staying with Scallywags in a fantastic villa with private pool. Staff are extremely friendly and customer service is first class. Great choice of Scallywags restaurants and also used Scallywag divers. Diving is excellent and turtles were huge. Totally recommend staying here on this relaxed island.
Stayed in Gili Air for a week and found this place to eat .. outstanding food and service .. ate here in many occasions as the food was so delicious we need to come back and try other food on the menu and it did not disappoint... if you get a chance definitely eat here ..
First time I visited Scallywags beach club was in 2013; and I came back 2016 and booked 2 nights at Scallywags smugglers retreat. Back then I knew that this is the best hotel on Gili Air. No doubt. Electricity is always working because Scallywags has its own generator, it's clean and superbly furnished with a private patio, and the breakfast buffet is to die for. Just amazing. I came back in November and December 2018 and stayed 4 nights and now I am more convinced that the staff makes this place so excellent. They are the most helpful, professional and amazing people working at Scallywags on Gili Air. They deserve all the praise and admiration more than the rooms and the facilities.
My mum and I had booked a room at the smugglers hideaway on Gili Air, my brother decided to join last minute and when I looked it seemed that the villas and rooms were booked so I asked if they could put another bed in our room which they happily did. When we arrived we realised it was very quiet and they actually had more rooms available so he moved into a room next door. The rooms were lovely, spacious and clean, but the walk down to where breakfast would be each morning was a little far (about 10 mins) We were then told that they had some beach villa available so we moved into a family beach villa. The beach villa's are a little bit smaller and seem a bit older, there wasn't a wardrobe to hang clothes so we hung them on the curtain rail, which wasn't ideal and the mosquito nets had a few holes and gaps, but the villas are closer to the beach and food! The thing that make this place so amazing is the staff and the food! We ended up eating here every night because the BBQ was SO GOOD! The staff were so helpful when we moved from smugglers to the villas, carried all our stuff for us and were constantly making us feel happy and comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying here if visiting Gili Air!…
