When mentioned on arrival, this was meet by a shrug of the shoulders by the surly, quiet rude receptionist - denied all knowledge... More

I love when a hotel is well located, and even more if it is waterfront. Add to this a swimming pool and a sports bar, where lots of foreign get together to watch games and have a beer. The hotel is simple, but just right if you look for an informal beach atmosphere. Even though I used to live in... More

In 2011, my children and I stayed here for 3 nights, as we were new visitors to Timor-Leste, and didn't know our way around. For the Family price that we paid, $109, we received a large room with 2 bedrooms. The accommodation was very run down, and the music above us in the evening 'nightclub' was too loud and ongoing....

Restaurant and bar over priced and just average quality. Rooms OK but need maintenance over-haul to justify the cost per night. Out look from bar area not the best in Dili, traffic noise tolerable but continuous. You can do better in Dili regarding position and costs incurred for accommodation and meals.

Over priced! Nice location opposite the Dili beach-front and good atmosphere in the bar but the beer and food are overprices as is the accommodation. I know the standard of accommodation I could get for US$90.00 per night in India or Thailand and this was nowhere near that standard. Considering that the girls working in the restaurant/bar are only getting... More

I stayed in Dili for the first time for a work attachment and was not sure what to expect. I chose the Dili Beach Hotel from a web based selection which was a bit of a lucky dip and my travel agent had no experience first hand of this near neighbour of Australia. I was surprised to see the flight... More

The room I stayed in was plain but extremely comfortable and cleaned daily including my laundry. For a kiwi to have an extended stay it was the perfect place with all the comforts... More
