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

Without doubt the Beachside Hotel is the best place to stay in Dili. Apart from the beautiful beach where you can sit under shady trees and watch superb sunsets, the hotel has immaculate rooms and facilities, including a delicious breakfast included in the room rate. I have now been staying at the Beachside Hotel for over 2 months and have... More

This hotel is in a magnificent location, 10-15 minutes from town, right on the beachfront. The service is terrific, with hosts Kathy and Bruce making sure we felt completely at home, even hiring us their private car for an adventurous drive around town. The food is great for breakfast and lunch and for afternoon snacks, with service at the hotel... More

Great place, opposite the best beach in Dili. Clean, well appointed rooms. Bruce and Kathy are wonderful hosts and staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast on the beach or a stubby of BinTan on the veranda, its all good.

Beachside Hotel owners Kathy & Bruce go out of their way to make sure that guests feel at home. Rooms are spotless and spacious, water hot and comfortable beds. Food is wonderful and drinks cold. Breakfast (included) is served on the verandah or on the beach. The girls who work there are also very helpful and eager to get any... More

We have stayed in East Timor several times and now will only EVER stay at the Beach Side Hotel. The position is beautiful, the staff friendly, the rooms spotless and Bruce and Kathy are the best hosts you can imagine. Nothing is too much trouble, their advise is always spot on and it has been an absolute pleasure to enjoy... More
