Great rooms, pool, staff. We loved our stay. Rooms come with AC, tv & DVD great bar fridge and outdoor hot/cold shower. Great location right amongst the action but still far enough away that you don't hear the parties that go on a few nights a week.

Can't wait to come back

Really good stay here overall. We booked very short notice and they were a bit slow responding and confirming via email so we had to phone to chase up. The staff were helpful when we did speak to them and took care of the boat arrangements for us. I was a bit worried about what boat service would be used as read some companies are more reputable than others but they used Blue Water Express who were fine and had good reviews.

Stayed here several nights and thought it was a great place and reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly though service was sometimes a bit patchy. We waited ages for a forgotten lunch order one day with staff seeming to not notice and a couple of others times you'd wait ages for a drink or bill. Having said this it's not a big deal as on this kind of island and place you are not paying for or expecting slick service and things are more laid back which is part of the charm.

The BBQ dinner was very good, cocktails and drinks also good, the breakfast which was included in the room rate was so so. The outdoor table area overlooking the beach and sea is just stunning. The pool area was always clean and inviting, we tended to use it late afternoon after being out and about all day or on the beach and found it to be less crowded then and a great place to relax. Rooms were good and clean and I liked the outdoor bathrooms (so nice having a shower in the open air) and area to sit out at the front of the room.

The location is a little walk away from the main busy part of the island but this is a good thing. It's much calmer and in a nicer location and you are not far from the action at all. The Gilis are a great escape for a few days and if I came back I'd definitely stay here again,

We only had positive things to say about Scallywags, Trawangan. Great food, friendly staff, awesome coffee, clean, stylish, spacious, airy, cool room. In fact we did say a few times "is there anything they haven't thought of??"

Most nice hotels you pay for high end, swanky rooms and staff that call you sir etc etc. but these places never have any soul or character. Well this is where Scallywags runs away with it. All of the afformentioned, but with it's own take on things, plenty of character.

Go, don't think about it just do it. We stayed at 4 places on the Island, as Scallywags was only for the last night we extended our stay by 3 nights cos we couldn't bere to leave!

Thanks again .Ally&Hannah

Room Tip: Get no.1 to be closest to the pool or no.10 for the most noise reduced. Although it was a very quiet...
