Shockingly bad experience. Worst ever room/hotel I stayed at (and I've been around). Remember this place in vivid color. Where to begin? Arrival in afternoon, head straight to the pool to find dirty water - didn't get in as I thought I might get sick. Facilities in general look ramshackle. Maumere was hit by a tsunami in 1992 and the... More

This hotel is way overpriced. There is no WIFI. The rooms are of good standard, but the bathrooms are not. In the first deluxe room we checked in to the toilet was very dirty and the flush did not work. In the second room the bathroom was the standard of most cheap hotels in Indonesia. Shortly after settling into the... More

One of the worst experiences we have had in a hotel. The staff is extremly unmotivated. If you come into the restaurant, everyone leaves. Sometimes it takes forever for them to come and take your order. It really seems as if they don't want to do the work. Orders take quite long, you gotta get used to be waiting an... More

In 20 years of backpacking, I have never stayed at a worse hotel. This place has a massive problem with swarms of flies which get everywhere especially on your food when you are trying to eat. Nothing works in the hotel rooms. I include the toilets and showers in this. The room was very dirty. The staff were not friendly... More

It'a a local style hotel with AC rooms and sea front bungalows. The beach is very nice with a coral reef hudred meters from the strand an nice mangroves. It's 9 Km from Maumere town so you should hire a motorbike (7 USD a day) but it's necessary if you want to explore the outskirts of maumere. The manager is... More

We're truly disappointed regarding this hotel, it was highly recommmend on the Lonely Planet and this is why we chose it. We arrived at the hotel 2 weeks ago and ask for 2 rooms, the staff seemed to be nice and we put our stuff in the rooms. Then we had a problem with our driver and we ask the... More

We called ahead to ask availability and we're informed that all categories were still available. When we arrived though, the very unfriendly manager told us she had only the most expensive room available. When we informed her that we had just called she argued that we had used the wrong phonenumber. When we told her we would still like the... More

I had friend from French were book the room through online but when check in no room available / fully booked. All the rooms were occupied by local people. Make sure a least 1 or 2 days before check in asking if room available even though you had record from online booking that room confirmed.

We stayed at Gading Beach Bungalows and chose the beachside 'deluxe'? bungalows over the cheaper options. The room was nice, with beautiful views and was a good place to relax after an exhausting transit and rather overwhelming experience upon arrival into Maumere airport. The staff could be more helpful, and it took 20 minutes to track someone down in the... More
