Nice location and the rooms are nice enough (I had a beachfront suite). The food in the restaurant was again nice enough eight being spectacular and if they are bus they will take your order and time mid afternoon. They even said that if you didn't it would be a long wait. Only problem I had was that the air... More

The bungalows on the beach were recently renovated. The rooms were decent, but the customer service was dreadful. I say this with no fault of the staff. They were friendly and trying their best, but training and supervision were lacking. Just to give a few examples. Every single time we ordered a beer from the beach bar, we received a... More

I stayed for a week at Sea World. It was during the low season and rained a lot. We experienced many blackous that sometimes could last for a few hours. I can accept those, but not the poor service. It's an old resort and the facilities look tired and need maintenance/new investment. My room was quite dark, and sometimes they... More

This is really the only place to stay in Maumere! Set back off the coast road out of town, this hotel has a restful feel from the moment you arrive. The staff are friendly and checked us in quickly, we had a wonderful two bedroom cottage. The accommodation is comfortable, good size living area and nice shower room. The air... More

Stayed here during December for Christmas, mainly to snorkel and dive. There isn't much else to do besides that and relax. The accommodation was quite alright, made of wood, so the floors are quite squeaky. Clean and comfortable for the price. The restaurant food isn't very good though, not many options and not so tasty. There are some snorkel areas... More

I had a plan to stay cheap in town, but after 2 days in Gardena I gave up. There is nothing to do in Maumere and New Year was approaching, so i decided to treat myself with better accommodation....I just regret for not coming here straight away. Cheap town options are from 100k (quite bad) to 350k in Sylvia, which,... More

I stayed at Premium Beachfront Suite Bungalow which was very nice, although a bit overpriced I believe. I would recommend to book another beach front accommodation category and it should be just as fine and better value for money. The resort is located a few kilometres East of Maumere and is completely laid back, quiet and a great to relax.... More

Firstly please remember by reading a review to compare Apples with Apples. What is excellent on Flores will be maybe average on Bali. But hey you are on Flores!! We booked the 4 best beach bungalows available and they where GOOD. Spacious, clean, nice bed, proper air-con, good shower and terraces with chairs overlooking the sea. When you come with... More
