As everyone says, not a resort so leave these expectations behind. Hard to spend too many days in Dili so this was a great alternative to get away - unfortunately picked the worst day for weather in years so this minimised the snorkelling for some of the time. But the next day though. my wife saw more fish life than... More

It is difficult to comply with Trip Advisor rating standards since Barry's is so unique. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel, don't go to Atauro. If you are looking for a perfect getaway spot that reflects the way island travel used to be, this place is for you. It is absolutely authentic. Barry himself is one reason... More

This is definately not a resort and thats what we loved about the place. The huts are spaced well apart and have their own chairs and one hammock (too fight over). The rooms are basic but bring back memories of what travelling in SE Asia use to be. These would be classified as upmarket. They have fans and a wardrobe... More

It is difficult to give a star rating as Barry's is unique. Being on an island that is only accessible by almost two hours on a small boat and has no running water or central power, Barry's place is definitely an Eco-lodge. Don't expect anything fancy. The rooms are extremely basic (bed and mosquito net), the toilet is long drop... More

Had the most fabolous experience staying at barry's. Dolphins on the boatd ride each way was just the beginning. We really enjoyed the personal hospitality, especially given we were there with young kids, fresh off the plane from Sydney. What a perfect start for our timor leste adventure.

I loved staying here, I only stayed 2 nights but wish I has the time to stay longer. It's so relaxed and everyone we met here was so friendly. Barry is a legend, he is such a great guy and helps everyone with everything. The place runs off solar power and car batteries and it really blends in with the... More

This place is totally appropriate! In harmony with the environment and it seemed with the locals. Barry employs a lot of people directly and indirectly. For example the boatmen are on hand to take you out for a snorkel almost at call; the food arrives fresh each day; on Saturday night, a pleasant group of local musicians do a few... More

We only spent 2 nights there in early October one night in the "tent" (US$30/night) and the other night in the gazebo (US$35/night). Absolutely spot on. The staff were friendly and engaging, Barry and his wife were very friendly and obliging, the food was simple but local and plenty of it, the resort was clean and tidy. The ablutions were... More

This was our third trip to Barry's on Atauro. Working as volunteers in Timor-Leste it is a welcome break from the madness of Dili. Things are simple here but well thought out. Barry & his team are continually improving and upgrading the facilities & surrounding ernvironment. Everything on the island has to be brought over by boat which makes what... More
