“Nice View”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Sorry my English is not really good but I'll try to give comment for this hotel in English.
I love the ambiance of this hotel. Sitting while dreaming under the sun bright in the morning. I could not found the wave even the hotel floating on the sea. The staffs are friendly, delicious food.
In the morning, when I sitting in front of my room, a lady with red long-dress brought me the traditional food, she calling it "Jalankote" and Air Tahu (tasted seems like soybean). The taste.....WOW....I want it again....
Pantai Gapura Hotel, gave my inspiration to crate a book that I have to write.

Thank you Pantai Gapura

Being the hub for East Indonesia, Makassar @early 2012 don't have plenty of Hotel selection. Hotel here is fully booked most of the time.

Hotel Pantai Gapura is located near Pantai Losari and therefore plenty of local food selection is available almost 24 hour. My check in experience has been quite unconvincing with the lobby look very old and hotel overall look a little bit dark. The woody look in the hotel makes it have strong characteristic but big upgrade is desperately neeeded considering it's price.

I got room at the second floor with bathroom look like something from the 80's and room condition well under my standard. The air conditioner in my room is quite noisy and not functioning well which should be very important considering the weather in Makassar. Breakfast is okay, with quite wide selection and good quality.

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, lush garden setting. Good vibes. Place needs fixing up, in the same manner as many other Indonesian places do. Nothing to really bother about if you prefer the authentic over an impersonal big flashy hotel. We enjoyed our stay from start to end, regardless of the run down bathroom and the noisy AC. Restaurant on ship: nice feature and good to catch some wind + city views.

Room Tip: Don't go for standard room, too dark.

Wonderful cottages that extend out over the ocean (ocean view rooms). Beautiful hotel, rooms and grounds. Good service. Free internet, but only in the open air lobby, which is a problem in that the area has mosquitoes. The room bathrooms are not up to the other hotel standards although adaquate. The large buffet breakfast is very nice althought heavily slanted toward Indonesian and Asian travelers. But a nice selection of fruit and eggs cooked to order means you will not go hungry. If you like asian breakfasts, it is a feast. A/C units appear to be undersized for the west facing ocean view rooms but I still recommend getting the ocean view room. The view from your private patio is very nice.

Due to late arrival of our flight we checked in at 0300. Next morning due to jetlag we did not make breakfast.
Upon asking if there was anything available as breakfast staff immediately told us there was, but we would have to pay separately for that. So for 2 toast, butter and marmelade we had to pay Rp. 100.000. This turned out to be characteristic for the overall atmosphere.
In the evening we sat on the (nice) beachside terrace and took 2 Bintang beers. Unfortunately we had not consulted the pricelist, because for these 2 beers they charged Rp. 160.000 (€12)!. During the rest of our 3 week trip we never paid more than 40.000.
The cottage room did have a nice view, but it was quite obvious not one Rupia had been spent on maintenance of the room and especially the bathroom in the last 30 years or so.
The price of €80 per night is then far too high. Wonder where all this money is going.

The setup of the Pantai Gapura is great: a quiet place with cottages directly on the seaside, amidst of a noisy and busy city. The rooms feel a bit outdated and so does the rest of the place. Great service, which has its price here (the most expensive spring rolls we had in Indonesia). A good start for our trip through Sulawesi.

Room Tip: Choose a seaside cottage and never take a room in the main building.

This was the first hotel we stayed in on Sulawesi. We had a room next to the garden and far from the restaurant. Our room was quiet and clean. The property was also clean and the breakfast was good. The hotel is located in a nice place, close to fort Rotterdam.

Room Tip: Ask for a room far from the restaurant because of karaoke in the evening.
