    Amazing value for money”
    Pool was great with plenty of sunbeds available. Restaurant was decent, not amazing but good enough. We had a superior room overlooking the pool which was great. The only negative I have is that the shower head was super mouldy, which made the water smell. The shower itself was fine, just the head.

    Very close to the pier so easy to walk there when you get off the boat, don’t bother taking a horse and cart. Can hire bikes to get around the island. Swimming pool is nice and room was clean. AC was amazing, the room was freezing!! Staff lovely and cold towel and orange juice on arrival.

    Central harbour location ”
    For me the location and at a good price was a winning formula of the place. No additional cost of taking a horse cart ( especially when travelling with luggage) for a set price of approx $10 each ride. It is close to the harbour for the ferry transfers and boat trips. Great. The hotel grounds are well maintained and felt safe for a female solo traveller. However the maintsinance of the rooms and the quality of cleanliness could be worked on. The staff lack an attention to details. There were broken glasses left by the pool for 2 days, untouched by the staff- until I asked the reception to remove it. Towels were never available by the pool, had to be requested st the reception again; dirty cups and glasses in rooms, clearly not washed just wiped witha dirty cloth, stained towels. Staff were quite responsive if something was requested by a customer but not proactive to notice broken glass, lack of towels, a broken shower handle etc.

    Great Hotel”
    Villa Karang is very close to the Gili Air harbor which meant we didn't have to pay a horse & buggy to take us to the hotel (they charge a fortune, 150K IDR for a 10 min ride??!). They didn't have our room ready just yet but gave us a free welcome drink and a cool refreshing cloth (we'd just hiked Rinjani so we were filthy). Within 10 min we were in the room which was very comfortable. Nice little porch, awesome outdoor shower. Only complaint about the rooms is that the walls are *VERY* thin, so we could hear everything our neighbors said or did. If you're looking for a hotel where you can just walk right out on to the beach, I'd recommend staying on either the East or North side of the island. We had to bike for about 10-15 minutes before we got to a good lounging beach with snorkeling. The harbor is packed with boats and dive centers trying to snag customers so it wasn't a relaxing location. We'd leave after breakfast and then make our way to either the E or N beaches to stay all day, returning after dinner to the hotel.

    Generally fine”
    I booked the hotel for 7 nights. The location is quite ok, walking distance from the harbor so no need to book a horse chart. Quite a big pool behind, garden and a few buildings. the room was quiet and I would not hear much from the mosque. Breakfast was quite complete, for the price, nothing to say, a bit of variation every day. The staff is for sure friendly though generally the hotel needs a bit a better supervision. Room was a standard size, comfortable with a nice terrace.no fridge in the lowest room category. semi open shower which was fine. Water had a bad smell but that happens often on the island. Had and AC problem, which was solved though when happened in the early morning there was no engineering there helping out, had to wait until morning.

    Great place to say that's not too far away from the port”
    Stayed there for New Year's and had a good pool area, good bungalows, good size bed, decent shower head and bathroom layout in general. Breakfast was pretty good with the staff cooking fresh eggs for you to your preferred style and a semi-buffet style too, nice view on the veranda where the restaurant was for breakfast. Only downside was that one of the wardrobe doors was locked without a key, so couldn't use hang clothes. I'm sure this could have been fixed if requested though.

    Good value hotel”
    We definitely enjoyed our stay at the Villa Karang Hotel. Location was very close to the town centre on Gilli Air (within walking distance of the main Pier), with beautiful beaches for swimming and snorkelling just a few minutes walk in either direction. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful, and the breakfast buffet and a seafood BBQ dinner were both excellent. The main hotel pool was under repair when we were there, but a second pool near all the action of "main street" and the beach was beautiful and clean. I'd definitely stay at the Villa Karang again, and recommend it to others.

    Big room. Close to harbor. Big pool
    We didn't get the rooms we had ordered. They tried to compensate with less money than we paid for the room. The food in the restaurant was very bad and this included the breakfast. The beach in front of the hotel cannot be used. Always full of boats. All in all the hotel was a disappointment

    The pool, the rooms and its close location to harbour.
    The Villa Karang has amazing rooms and the poolisreally clean and a great place to relax. The main drawback was the food. The breakfast that was included was inedible. The pancakes were rubbery and the yoghurt lukewarm and the fruit didn't seem very fresh. The wi-fi was really bad and did not work for the whole last day I was there (this may be a problem with the entire island though). Staff try really hard but I felt the hotel as a whole was not the best value for money.

    location, staff, location
    It was good however the fridge wasn't working the first night (in fairness they gave us a complimentary dinner) and the room for the 2nd and 3rd night was nicer but the tv didn't have good reception - luckily we had good books! Also the hot water in the shower didn't work. The water seemed salty as well. Breakfast was average bordering on terrible (the pre-cooked buffet meals weren't heated). All in all it was a good place though and the staff were really great. I just feel it was over priced for what we got.

    1. The staff. 2. The surroundings. 3. The location
    1. The staff is amazingly efficient. The staff helped us arrange the two-way (car+fast boat) transportation between Lombok to Gili islands with a relatively reasonable rate. And the service is so sweet that we were quite content with. 2. The pool and its surrounding are nice. 3. Only 5 mins' walk to the port.
