“Mistake”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Other than the sea view, it is a terrible hotel. I booked a double bed room, and they gave me two single beds. When I told about this to the management, I was told that they were out of double beds! After I complained, they told me that they can give me a double bed with no sea view, which is definitely a downgrade! Then they sent people to my room to move me out to the room with no view. Considering that the hotel does not have anything to offer but the view, this is a major disappointment. Also the towels are stained and the AC which is right above the bed blows air on to the bed and drips water on the pillow! Staff do not help at all, I wanted to book a trip to Komodo Island at 7:45, they made me wait for 30 minutes, and told me that they can't book it from the hotel after 8! Terrible hotel, bad value for money...

We stayed in this hotel July 2014. The Room was spacious and clean. Fantastic view from the balcony. Wonderful view of sea, gardens and pool.
Unfortunately the beach area was filthy full of rubbish, that no-one seemed ever to clean.

Clean Bedding and towels every day. Lots of student training staff all young teenagers.
The reception staff did seem to be more efficient and qualified and helpful.


The town / village was about a 15 min walk. There was a shuttle service which you did need if you went into town at night. The town was full of rubbish and the rain gullies full of filth its a wonder no-one is seriously ill. a couple of hundred years ago London England was also full of rats filth etc and there was a plague outbreak.,

There are some quite nice places to eat, the Lounge has a good atmosphere and music. The bakery does good bread cake and cofffee.

Room Tip: Room with sea view. Top floor should be quieter, no noisy cleaning staff above you.

First impression for me is they provided and served me "breakfast saur" in Ramadhan with appropriate meals, we can ordered meals in the night and they deliver it to my room as we ordered on time. on Friday hotel staff cleaned the beach from garbage it's nice they are Eco friendly even though only once a week. Pool view and sea view made my feet won't go anywhere until sunset done. the room is cozy with balcony and warm staff hotel whom always smile to the guest. It's not wrong choice to spend you're week in here when you are planning to dive and travel across the Komodo archipelago.

Room Tip: Room with sea view provide you a better landmark and go than hillview

I expect a lot more for the price. The poolside view is the only nice thing. The beachfront is covered in trash and the rooms and hotel are extremely dirty. The food at the restaurant is horrible. I didn't even want to eat the breakfast I bought. The spa is a joke where a massage is being covered with a beach towel on a small table and having cream violently rubbed over your body. To top it off the service is bad. It seemed like the entire hotel was being run by teenagers who didn't know what there were doing. I'm sure there are much better, cheaper options.

i stayed in this place for 3 nights, booked via agoda, and was abit skeptical, but when i got there, it was just wonderful, the room was big and facing the mountain and the sea, the staff and especially the GM were so so friendly and very helpful. i had a great time :)

Room Tip: the wifi is having trouble so perhaps better to rely on your phone :)

I was very hesitant about staying here after reading the reviews, but after staying 6 nights I can say that it was a perfect hotel to spend almost a week in Labuan bajo.

Pros:
1. The air con worked perfectly.
2. There is a fridge, tv, toiletries, nice bath.
3. The hotel is a 10 min walk from a decent sized store that sells beer, snacks, milk, bread ect...
4. There is a hotel shuttle that is easy to arrange that costs 4.50$. The shuttle is free to and from the airport.
5. The staff at the hotel were always friendly and smiling.
6. The view was spectacular and the pool was huge/ clean/ amazing!

Cons:
1. The main con would be that the city itself is not very nice
2. The beach in front has trash, but I would recommend taking a boat to nearby kanwana island to snorkel.

Overall I found it difficult to find info about Labuan Bajo prior to going so here are a few things that might help you.
1. The best food by far is at Made in Italy restaurant.
2. We could find everything that we needed at the local store( diet coke, diapers, wine)
3. We were able to rent a boat to take us to Rinca and Kanawa for 100$ for the day through the tourist office in town.
4. There are tons of dive shops in town that will take u on a day trip to the best spots in the Komodo National Park for 100$ for 2 dives.
5. If you are sensitive to dirt don't walk around town. It didn't bother me, but there are parts that u smell/ see sewage and maybe see a rat or

I do not have many nice things to write about this hotel except that the location boasts a beautiful sunset and that the building itself seems to be well constructed. Beyond that, I reckon the owner ran out of money and did everything else on the cheap.

The following were unacceptable at this $70 per night hotel:
- Dirty rooms and linens - blood stains on the bedding and towels, soiled sheets, filthy walls
- Breakfast buffet with flies swarming
- The hotel is staffed entirely by teenagers. It seemed as if everyone of them was in training and did not quite know what to do. I had the bell boy walk into my room un invited after I opened the door to inform me of a tour we were interested in booking.
- No visible management and formal process to file complaints (See previous comment as everyone was a teenager)
-overpriced and hardly edible food.... do not eat dinner here. Walk down to town and eat at one of the it Italian restaurants.

Pros
- beautiful sunsets
