We stayed in Almarik Resort for 2 nites. The staffs are warm and friendly but upon checked in, they said it is complusory for us to pay for the extra bed for any kid 3 years and above.
My boy is 8 year old and he can actually sleep with us on the same bed, but it was awkward that it is the hotel policy to charge extra for a child aged 3 and above -- most hotels in the world let kids below 12 shared the same bed for free!
With this extra bed for my son, the room price came to the same as other better class hotel which we didn't book due to budget constraint.

The room is big with a kingsize bed. Shower area was covered by torn and old bamboo-blinds . Between the shower area and the wash basin, there is a big glass area with some dead plant, the plants supposed to be there for decoration but i guess there is no proper maintainence, they were half-dead.
And this area is with open-roof concept which we think is a bit too open as anyone can actually see us clearly if they are slightly higher than our bathroom wall.
Breakfast simple and adequate but a lot of flies around maybe due to hot weather.
Hotel lobby is a bit old and worn , believe they can go for a renovation to look more appealing.
The 15 mins free massage is the best we like about this hotel.
Right outside the hotel is the busy main street of Gili T ,a lot restaurants , souvenir shops etc.

We were quite disappointed with the sea near the beach , though water is clear but all corals seem dead. YOu have to go really out to the sea to see live and colorful corals. The whole strip of beach outside of Almarik is busy as well, with a lot of boats coming in and out, and restaurants on the beach.
On the last day of our holidays, we took the horse coach to the other side (west)of the island. We regretted so much for not staying here as the beach is so much nicer, serene and peaceful. No speedboat is allowed to directly come to this side of the beach, all must embark/disembark at the main jetty , which makes this beach more safe and quite.

Didn't have a chance to stay at Villa Almarik as it was booked out so we tried the food..Ordered seafood Spaghetti, Fries and Garlic Bread..Any boy was I impressed..The Spaghetti was served in miniature earthen pots which retained the heat and texture of the noodle..The Garlic bread was crunchy and dipping it into the seafood stock..Yummy..Oh and it's near the beach and a distance away from the hustle n bustle of the crowds near the jetty..What more can you ask for..

We stayed for 3 nights at the standard villa room which has old decoration. The room and bathroom are spacious, but definitely need renovation. The air conditioner is not cold enough and we experienced sudden off of the air conditioner which restart a few minutes after. We told the staff about that and the technician came who asked us to draw all the curtain to avoid sunlight coming in to lower room temperature and he said he did adjusted the air conditioner to be cooler. But we did not find it cooler and they gave us an electric fan.
Staff are attentive and helpful, and its location is away from those clubs and bar. There are good restaurants around also.
But I think the hardware of the villa need some improvement.

My husband & I stayed here for 4 nights and we were pleased. The location is across from the beach, the restaurant food was delicious and the service was great.
Unfortunately the shower had little water pressure and made it difficult to get the muck off your body. The 'private beach' was equipped with sunbeds, but randoms off the beach would use them as they aren't labelled for guests only.
Overall great stay.
