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.

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

The breakfasts were amazing , fresh and varied and carried to the beach for us. Bruce and kathy who own the place were... More

It took 30 minutes for a menu to be delivered to my table. I can't comment on the food because I left when it hadn't been delivered after another 30 minutes. I wouldn't bother driving all the way out there again.

I recently returned from East Timor and the Beachside Hotel is a true delight. The location is on the beautiful Areia Branca Beach, a few miles outside of central Dili. This is a plus and a minus. The area is much nicer and cleaner than downtown but you are much farther from the stores, restaurants, and activities in Dili. It... More
