Lombok: Pool Club Villas

We are going on a (large) family vacation to Lombok. Thinking of staying at the Pool Villa Club in Sengiggi. Has anyone stayed there? How are the villas and facilites? How is the beach around there?
Any other tips on Lombok, including shopping, would be greatly appreciated.

It's been a while (5 years) since I was there, but I absolutely loved it!

Service was the tiniest bit rough around the edges, but more than made up for by the willingness of the staff.

I'm sure the shopping has improved since we were there. I bought quite a bit of pottery, which was shipped to the US in perfect condition. There are silk weaving workshops, etc.

There's a pool that wends its way around the villas and also a private (huge) jacuzzi.

We didn't spend much time on the beach, we were there for the diving which was rated as very good.

We also toured a local village with bamboo huts raised on stilts.

All in all Lombok was very laid back with nowhere near the volume of traffic that Bali has. It's more of a place to relax than anything else.
