We had an excellent stay in this hotel. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Very nice and large room with a beautiful view. We stayed on the 8th floor - room 810 and wifi worked perfect.

They have a beautiful pool with nice garden. There is a nice beach - only at low tide though.
Restaurant staff speak english very well and try their best to offer a good service.
At breakfast you can order eggs in any style you like.

Before I booked I read a lot off comments about this hotel that were negative, but probably these people are used to staying in the Beverly Hills Hilton. Considering this hotel is in the middle of nowhere they are doing a great job.

To earn your helpfull vote : the hotel does offer a car service to town for 50.000 rupia ($5), which is a bit expensive. So walk into town once and rent a motorbike for 75.000 /day. Then you can do groceries and go to dinner in town whenever you like. I rented mine at Life is an Adventure for 4 days for 65K per day.

And tip #2 : Have dinner at Made in Italy ; wonderfull Italian food !

Room Tip: We had room 810, which has a great seaview. Spend the extra buck and get sea view. It's worth it...

This was one of the more interesting places we stayed on our 6 month trip. There is much to like about the hotel, but unfortunately even more that needs to be improved.

The best bits are the views and the pool. We were on the top floor and the sunset view was stunning. I do like a good sunset and this is easily in my top 5 ever. If youre unlucky enough to have a mountain view, the sunset is almost as good from the excellent infinity pool.

The room was also nice, a decent size with a balcony.

The rest though leaves a lot to be improved. I think most of it is due to the newness of tourism in LB so hopefully with time and training this will improve. I'll stick to the short list of low lights

Breakfast was shocking - Danish pastries were the best thing on offer, but I think the hotel got part cooked frozen pastries flown in and had them defrosted instead of cooked.

Lunch wasn't much better - chewy, bland rengdang curry. We didn't bother with dinner on any of our 4 nights so always had to trek into town (2 miles / 10 minute taxi away)

The shower in the ensuite is fitted at an insanely low height. I think most likely whoever fitted it had never seen a shower before.

They offer a $5 transport service into LB but this was hit and miss, often requiring a long wait. On one occasion, the driver sent to pick us up drove straight past us then didn't return until we called. It turns out he didn't know the dive shop we were at but didn't think to ask!

The level of english spoken is also very poor, it often took many attempts to get our message across.

... that's just the highlights!

Overall, I'll remember this place for the views and the pool while trying to forget the service!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night after we did a 3 day liveaboard in Komodo. It was nice for a one night stay - the hotel's free shuttle picked us up from the dive shop after we returned and also took us into town for dinner. They also drove us to the airport for free which was great. The hotel is a bit outside of town and is about a 25 - 30 minute walk and 5 mins by motorbike. We could not get a car taxi after dinner so just beware you will need to walk (which some parts are pretty dark) or get a motorbike ride. The pool is very nice and large although I do agree with everyone that the lounge chairs don't have padding so they are pretty uncomfortable. The wifi also only works in the lobby and not in the room. The room was large and the bed was pretty comfortable. The shower had hot water and the bathroom was clean. The view from the room's balcony is very nice and you can see the pool and water which was very pleasant. The staff was friendly and helpful when needed. This is by no means a 5 star resort but you are in Labuan Bajo so there are no 5 star resorts, however, for the area - it is more than sufficient for a couple of nights. I would say it is a bit overpriced but most of Labuan Bajo accommodations are expect Golo Hilltop resort!

Well Labuan Bajo was the roots place we stay in Indonesia, almost more roots of Nusa Ceningan.

the hotel good, a cool hotel in the middle of nothing, 7-10m walking to the center and restaurants.

Breakfast ok, and perfect for Asian people.

The hotel inst very organized about airport pick, they forgot the send some else to pick us, since we request that when did the booking.

Good pool, not so good restaurant, but ok

Location is a bit outside the "city", takes 30 min on foot and 5 min by motorbike.

We had seaview room (808), nice room with balcony. Clean, but it was not cleaned every day. Lot of small ants.

Pool area is nice, but they do not have mattresses on sunbeds, so very uncomfortable.

Not possible to sunbath on beach. Beach is also not very clean.

Breakfast was good, lot of variety. Unfortunately there are so much flies.

Staff is friendly.

There is nothing wrong with this hotel. We were pleasantly surprised and the reviews a bit harsh considering it is in Flores and a bit far of the regular tourist trail.
Our room a deluxe sea view was large with a good comfortable king size bed international TV good air conditioning and clean modern bathroom.
We had a large balcony looking out to the bay a great sunset view.
For us the walk from the hotel into town was not that far maybe 15min walking up one hill then a steady downhill walk into town really not that far. You can pick up a bemo from town back to hotel for 20000 rupee.
The pool was large and when we used it we were the only ones enjoying deckchairs tables and chairs all set on a local beachfront.
We enjoyed our stay and found the standard good considering the location is fairly remote.
The staff were polite and we found their English was good enough to understand each other

Room Tip: Deluxe sea view rooms have a nice outlook over bay
