Dili Beach Hotel is something of a landmark in Dili - and back in the day this was a popular choice for the NGO crowd. However today it is pretty poor - the standard and deluxe rooms are shabby, only the self contained bungalows at the back are worth considering, but only if you haggle a discount. The bar is...

Dili Beach Hotel has a charm I don’t find at any other hotels in Dili. It’s not one of those new, slick places you find everywhere, but a family hotel with history, and warmth. Yes, I do like it. I started travelling to Dili 20 years ago, lived here a few years and have spent quite some time at hotels... More

I have stayed at Dili Beach many times over the years on business trips to Dili. It may be a little tired in places, but the friendly staff and excellent food make up for any short comings. Safe secure, huge rooms, and a great location, plus excellent value for money.

I had a nice large suite with regular laundry service and very helpful staff. It was more room than I needed. The wifi was reliable which was very important to me. Loved the sunrises and sunsets over the ocean. Also very much liked the friendly cats keeping me company at dinner.

Stayed here three nights with a couple of friends. Rooms were OK, bathroom OK, restaurant OK. The pool was nice and quite. Location was good. We walked to the city centre in around 15 minutes, which is totally acceptable. The service was very good, and the staff was attentative and helpful! All in all good value for money for a... More

I have stayed at DBH several times on my visits here and recommend it. Facilities are basic, you need to show some patience with the staff and it is a distance out from areas like the Mall ... but (and its a big but), rooms are clean, aircon and wifi work most of the time and the bar / cafe...

The rooms are very tired, but the beds are comfortable and the prices are half what most places are charging. The food is good and equally affordable. The internet wifi is reliable, which is saying something in Dili. If I was bringing my wife, I wouldn't stay here, but when I'm here on my own working, and just somewhere to... More
