After 10 years ago, the place still offer the same comfy nice cool rooms to stay. Stay there couple days then you can feel full resting with the natural surrounding and full of trees. The lobby is huge and breakfast area is open air next to the lobby. Price is fair and the room condition is still clean with AC... More

A good place to stay for a few days - very peaceful and good location - we took a tour to Mount Ijen from here (see my review). Rooms were ok but bit dated - best bits were the bar/restaurant which was good and the pool which was very relaxing.

We didn't stay at this hotel, but did their Sukamade tour. Fortunately we saw a turtle and the next morning we let baby turtles to the sea, which was great. The staff was very kind and experienced. The stay at Sukemade was really basic, but it was part of the experience.

Kalibaru cottage is located at Gumitir mountain, where the air is fresh and clean. The rooms are clean and well maintained. Many foreigners were seen here, more than local tourist were. You can order a tour service to visit other places from here, like the Ijen crater and Sukamade beach. My suggestion is to go all the way and order... More

First impression is very nice. Pretty gardens. Rooms are ok. But the staff of the restaurant is very sloppy. Sitting together chatting at a table of the huge but very inhospitable restaurant. They could do so much better business. For example, in the huge lobby, next to the restaurant, nobody even bothers to ask the guests whether they would like... More

The rooms here are basic though the grounds are pretty, and the pool is very nice, But the food is absolutely awful, and there really isn't much choice in the vicinity. Basic Indonesian fare is almost ok, but we were celebrating a birthday and decided to splash out on a steak - think an overdone piece of meat with the... More

We had a VIP room which was at best standard. The pool was filthy. The tiles covered in slime and the pool grout black. The restaurant... More

The hotel is reasonably clean. there are not many restaurants nearby so you will most likely have to eat in this place. the dinner was ok but not fancy. The cottages are nice from the outside but could be modernized on the inside. While the bedroom is clean, the open air showers are a source of mosquito's, ants and other... More
