Martas is amazing, we had a wonderful stay!
The owner Joanna is so nice and helpful! She made the booking process easy and even before we arrived she was happy to answer any questions I had and replied to all of my emails quickly. She arranged for someone to meet us from the boat and help us get a horse and cart which was kind. When we arrived she sat down with us with a map of the island and showed us lots of places to go and gave us information that was really useful.
The location is great, it’s close enough that its only a short walk to the beach, shops, bars and restaurants but its far enough from the busy main strip that you are not disturbed by the noise. (Although the mosque is close by and that’s noisy).
The hotel itself is lovely, it has a fab little pool with sun loungers (and umbrellas if you need to get out of the scorching heat!) and the gardens are lush and pretty. The rooms were more like little cottages, you get the upstairs and downstairs and a terrace with a really comfy sofa! The rooms have traditional décor and are clean, comfortable, cosy and spacious. We booked for 2 people and the room had a single bed and a huge double bed!
The breakfast menu had a wider choice then most of the other hotels we stayed at on our trip and it was all really tasty! By far the best breakfasts we had at any of the hotels. And the drinks in the mini bar were all very reasonably priced which was a nice surprise as most hotels use that as a chance to rip you off.
The service was fantastic, all of the staff are pleasant and helpful. They had snorkels and masks that they let you use free of charge which is really nice of them as everywhere else charges you to rent them. They also offer 1 hours free wifi a day (per person) which isn’t mentioned on the website but again is really useful.
I would definitely recommend Martas to anyone staying in Gili T Joanna and her teams warm hospitality meant we had a fabulous stay! I hope to return one day!
