There are 3 main camps at G land (another is around there as well aparently)
In terms of mod cons, infrastructure and overall luxury Bobbys is the best. However you will pay accordingly and often share ot with a heap of seppos and Brazilians with the odd skip thrown in for good measure.
Joyos is the worst - crumby infrastructure and a favourite with the Brazilians as well - not the nicest way to have dinner with a bunch of blokes who spent all day dropping in on you; well that's if you get dinner as food has been known to run out there
G land camp is my favorite - middle of the range and often not as crowded as the other two as well as being located closest to the observation tower that is pretty much in front of launching pads which often has the best waves. The fat Kiwi bloke who runs it (Ron or Ray I forget his name) is a good bloke and most of the people who go there are chilled. However, given that you are taking a bird, I reckon Bobby's is the go.
Other pointers - watch the monkeys; thay will ramage through your room and take whatever they can get their hands on.
Only go if it is a south or ssw swell - too much west in the swell makes it section too much.
Your probably better off taking the speed boat. Pack sea sick tablets for the return trip esp if there is a swell running.
Enjoy. it's a great place to get away from the rat race of Bali for a few days
