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...

We were not disappointed with our stay at The Waterfront. Our room was big, clean and had great facilities. I loved the outdoor shower. There are a couple of pools but mostly in the shade. The beach that is great for snorkeling is a stone's throw away. If you plan to Dive with Manta Dive I would recommend staying here,...

My 14 year old son and I booked the Waterfront so as to be close to Manta Dive while we completed our SSI Open Water Dive Certification. I loved the simplicity of the bungalow - had everything we needed and a cool little front porch and daybed and a cool outdoor shower. The gardens were gorgeous and the pool was...
