I really can't say how well we were looked after at the villa's, it was on another level.
We stayed at the Dua gills which were 3 separate Bales with a small pool in the middle of the 3. The room was very spacious with a large extremely comfortable bed downstairs and 2 large settees upstairs in the open air. The bathroom was part outdoors which I have never experienced before but is quite common in Bali which at first I couldn't get my head around but got used to it pretty quickly however may not be to everyones taste.
The grounds have a dining area where food can be ordered at reasonable prices and honestly some of the best I tasted in Bali, certainly the best chicken satay.
The staff there can't do enough for you, they will let you know where to go and where to avoid, e.g. we were going to go in to padang bai to arrange transport to Gili but as there's little else there Wayan phoned and sorted us reservations on the boat saving us the hassle and a wasted day on holiday which is "the going the extra mile" we experienced for the whole 5 nights we stayed, the team really were second to none.
I do however think that the dua gils have become a little confused in the way they have been built. If you wanted to just sit in the sun all day you'd be limited due to a lot of shade from the buildings/banana trees so bare that in mind if that's what you are going for.
Things to note:
The rooms don't have tv etc so make sure you pack some entertainment.
I would also recommend taking mosquito spray/coils as you are on the edge of forest/jungle
Take plenty of cash if you don't have transport as the nearest atm is a half hour drive but you can go as part of a tour day so you're not wasting time/money.
