Only stayed one night but I can highly recommend the hotel and the area. I really wish I would have stayed longer. The hotel is simple but the rooms are nice and the staff is very helpful. The area is beautiful and of course the jumping off point to get to Komodo and Rinca Islands.

An excellent place to stay if you want away from the hustle and bustle of traffic whilst only being a 3 minutes taxi from town. Breakfast is good (eggs or noodles), the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean with excellent mosquito nets, the pool are is fantastic.

We thank you for your positive comments about our Bajo Komodo Eco Lodge. We fully understand and agree with your comments about the beach in front of us. This is our weakest point and we most certainly are not a beach lodge but a peaceful haven to discover the area especially the Komodo National Park with its dragons and superb... More

I found the Ecosafari company, which has ecologically conscious lodges on Flores Island, Bali and other locations and organises trips. Website URL is ecolodgesindonesia dot com.

Cant understand why this little gem wasnt full. Its right by the beach with super views out to the islands and amazing sunsets either from the first floor verandah dining area and lounge or from an evening stroll along the sand. The rooms are clean and spacious and the staff very friendly.

The place has a beautiful garden, large rooms and some remarkable furnitures. The problem is the maintenance, as everything is getting old. So you get a very good place, but it could be great if they would just decide to invest something in small renovations (really needed, for example in the bathroom, or the bedsheets). In short: - good breakfast,... More

My stay here was part of an inclusive package which included Air transport fro Bali and boat transfer to Rinca Island to visit the famous Komodo Dragons.

The hotel itself is nice and the location excellent. Rooms fine, garden lovely, eating terrace beautiful. The staff,...well, they are not very professional, but this is Flores, and they try their best. However the hotel is totally overpriced.
