The rooms were clean but ordinary, but the beach access, the owners and the food made this place a 5!! We moved from one hotel to stay here as we drove by on our visit to Christo monument and saw how beautiful the beach setting was. We spend a second night (our last night) for one final beautiful sunset and... More

We stayed here on three separate occasions while in East Timor and will stay again.The setting is beautiful, situated on a gorgeous beach in a picturesque bay with the most amazing sunsets. Bruce and Kathy are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to help. Their local knowledge is invaluable and readily shared. Kathy's food is fresh and delicious,... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and were very happy. The facilities are beautiful and the food was amazing! We would certainly stay again. The only drawback is it's about 6km out of town, however, there's not much in town to want to go in for, the dive companies are happy to pick you up and really it's only a... More

The hotel is clean and airy. Very friendly and helpful staff. Bruce and Kathy are always there and have the answer to any probem that might come up. The location is wonderful for breakfast and lunch on the beach and dinner specials on Wednesday - amazing sunsets always! So good to be out of the hustle and bustle of Dili... More

This is, by far, the best place to stay in Dili. Bruce is knowledgable in local politics, something you really need to 'keep on top of' while visiting this country. His accommodations are clean and comfortable for a poverty stricken country. His food is excellent, healthy, fresh and 'clean'. The beach location and view are unsurpassed and much safer than...

My wife and I have been staying at Beach Side hotel for five months, and are very happy. This is a small, intimate hotel, and the hosts Bruce and Kathy are attentive, friendly and helpful, especially when it comes to navigating the minefields of getting things done in Dili. The staff are also friendly and committed, they are among the... More

We have travelled to East Timor on several occasions now and really appreciate the warm welcome from Cathy, Bruce and Staff. Travel around Timor can be quite challenging and to have an hotel as excellent as Beachside to return to is a real treasure. We always allow at least two days at the end of our trips to unwind at...

Lovely hotel (more like a motel set-up) across the road from the quietest beach you will ever see, about 5-10 minutes east out of the city centre, towards the Cristo Rei. Rooms are tastefully decorated with comfortable mattresses, and a good amount of wardrobe and drawer storage space. A full-size fridge is provided along with a kettle for your snacking... More

Beachside is a great Hotel, probably the best in Dili. It's in a great location (although about 5km out of town) on the beach. There are several restaurants within walking distance, ocean views and good walking/running routes. The service, the staff, the owners Bruce and Cathy, and the acting manager, Mark, when they are away are just fabulous. They are... More
