We stayed for 4 nights. The room was okay (room 12b) but pretty small. The rooms are cleaned every day and you get fresh towels every other day (or you can ask for fresh towels). Breakfast is pretty good. The beach and the ocean are very clean and clear. Pool is small and nobody uses it. We only give 3...

This was the 4th time I've visited Bale Sampan and it's always such a treat! The staff are friendly and attentive and it's nice to see so many of them still working here year on year. The breakfasts in the café are awesome - I can't recommend the banana & honey pancake or the porridge highly enough :D The switch...

I visited Gili with my brother at the beginning of the year and wasn't sure what to expect when we went to Gili for the final 3 nights of our holiday. When arriving on the Island, it is pretty chaotic, especially in the heat, so it was amazing to arrive at Bale Sampan and discover that we had made a...

We stayed at this resort for 1 night. Location is good. Rooms and bathrooms were nice. Air Con in our room was the biggest problem. Did not cool nicely and leaked on my head during the night. We also found some dead cockroaches in the room which is much better then having live cockroaches running around. Staff was awesome and...

Stayed here for two nights recently, it's a really good place to stay if you want to be near the action but still be able to get away from it, The hotel has a depth that makes you feel far away from the hustle but you are right in the centre. Fresh water pool is nice and the breakfast is...
