Fantastic, friendly, clean, comfortable and with an amazing view. Only downside, no pool, but it didn't matter. Great value for $. If you are wanting to go on a boat trip they will help you get organised too. Easy to get around, Bemo in the day, Ojek at night. Highly recommended.

We have been here for 2 nights and loved it. Clean rooms, great views -from your own private verandah- friendly staff and great meals. You can order dinner here which was great. Rooms like a small appt with an a/c bed room. Free tea and coffee available all day, your own drinking water supply and afternoon snacks. Wifi good. Bemos to town go past otherwise a 15 min walk to town. We will be back.

This is a gem of a hotel built into a hillside overlooking the harbor at Laban bajo. The rooms are clean and spacious plus every room has an incredible view and is completely private. The owners are friendly and very helpful and the food was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We also were happy to support a business that is employing sustainable practices in its operation.

We stayed here for just 1 night before going on a liveaboard dive boat. The place is great and excellent value for money. Clean, comfortable, fantastic views, great air con, free water, tea, coffee etc for you to make yourself. The views are fantastic - which means it is up hill a bit and is best reached by bemo after dark. What is absolutely stand out is the exceptionally helpful owner Ad who gave great impartial advice and helped us book what turned out to be a stunning holiday for our family.

Set on a hill, Bayview Gardens has a great view of the harbour. Adrian was great, helping me several times arranging travel east towards Moni/Kelimutu (I decided to take Gunung Mas, which was actually quite nice/clean and convenient). The complimentary snacks and breakfast were good as well. They are expanding, adding a few rooms and I believe it's better than Golo, which I checked out as well. There's a small path if you turn to the left when you walk out which is a faster way to get into LBB.
They have a safe where you can store your valuables, free drinking water, free wifi, and good AC (included in the costs already). There's a mosque nearby which woke me up at 5am.

this hotel has many plus points:-
1) Adrian the owner is extremley helpful both before & during your stay & nothing flusters him
2) the view is phemoninal - the best we have ever had
3) a good supply and choice of room self service tea, coffee, water, snacks
4) the food is excellent & delivered to your balcony
5) the rooms are actually suites with plenty of space to dry scuba gear

the downsides are easy to put up with given the scale of the pluses:-
1) it is quite a walk to and from the town up a steep uneven path or along the road, a private taxi is best (they do exisit ask a vendor/dive operator in town to arrange it for you)
2) the hotel lacks a focal point for mixing with other travellers

I dont think you can make a better choice in Labuan Bajo.

We had the pleasure to stay for 6 nights at Bayview Gardens. This hotel, almost resembling a botanical garden, offers a rarely seen service, location and overall experience. We were picked up at the airport by the very friendly and helpful staff. Our room offered a lot of privacy, had a very spacious balcony with an amazing view over the bay, 2 separate air-conditioned bedrooms with a safe, free WIFI and a modern bathroom. The breakfast was made on request and served at the room. Every day, an afternoon snack was provided together with coffee, tea and water. We were also very happy to use the offered laundry service. Watching the sunset from your balcony was an unbelievable experience. The restaurant offers also a great view over the bay together with very good food, such as grilled fish (don't forget to inform during the day if you wish to have dinner in the restaurant). We were there for a dive course and the city centre was a short walk (10-15 minutes) from all the dive centres in town. We had some problems organising our dive course, but the hotel staff was very helpful in contacting the dive centres on our behalf. Unfortunately, the swimming pool was still under construction during our visit. Although not the most luxurious hotel, it was great value for money and a unique experience. We would definitely recommend Bayview Gardens to our friends and relatives.
