“great sunset view, quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is slightly outside of town, 20min on foot or 50'000 rupiah if you use the hotel shuttle service (we just took bemo for 5'000 rupiah /pp). But being a bit outside means this is perfectly quiet dyring night and day. The rooms are spacious, including a mini fridge, a safe and a balcony. Make sure to ask for a sea view room: the sunset is fantastic! The inifinity pool is great and surrounded by a well-maintained garden. A breakfast buffet is included in room price, i found the ingredients quality was average despite the large selection. Freshly made omelets or waffles are good though. Staff is very kind and helpful. Internet is available in reception/restaurant/pool areas and free. The hotel can pick-up/drop-off at airport for free. Overall we enjoyed our stay, this was very relaxing.

This is a mini oasis on the tranquil ocean setting, too bad the beach is so terribly littered with garbage, it would be a great community project to clean it up and in turn keeping the ocean cleaner. We saw way too much garbage in the ocean and on the beach.
However the hotel is a great refuge, comfortabe rooms, we were upgraded without being asked, great TV with lots of channel choices, great infinity type pool, and very,very well kept and clean grounds. The rooms at hotel need a good spring cleaning of window ledges and corners. Do be aware that you are a ways from town and each trip costs INR 50,000, about $5.00 return, this I think the hotel should provide gratis to customers.
Staff are excellent, nothing is too much to ask, they are so friendly and kind, we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them during our stay. The coffee and tea in each room is a very nice.touch.
We thought the restaruant prices were high, until we went into town our first night to the Mediterranio restaurant, same prices and portions were so small, we left hungry. Next night we tried hotel restaurant and never ate out again, food was excellent and portions were more than enough, try them first.
We would choose this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room as the sweeping unobstructed view is worth it and the balcony is much larger.

Great hotel admist a run down town just getting renewal. View is fantastic. Food is good, though no bacon for breakfast. The staff seem to be happy turning up the volume of local tv in the restaurant in the morning rather than letting guests enjoy the beautiful scenery and tranquility. Also the swimming pool is like a disco with music blaring for the staff, scaring away those who want to enjoy peaceful tranquility of the pool. The staff are very polite, but someone forgot to tell them that the guests come first. Hotel rooms are good, though try to get a room without an adjoining door, as you can hear the tv next door. There is a trail in front of the hotel which is a sharp rise making for a beautiful 10 minute walk to see sunset. Labuan Bajo is a 10-15 minute walk away or an ojek costs 5,000RP. Try the local cermin caves - it is only 10,000 rp by ojek.

Rooms are very clean.
During the day you can relax in the swimming pool.
The staff is friendly and careful.Free internet.
The only negative thing...the beach could be much better.

Some of the best views of the Labuan Bajo's bay. Wonderful sunset.
Modern, clean and comfortable.
Although we chose it because it was advertised as spa, there are no spa on it.
Wonderful swimming pool anyway.
Normal breakfast.
Expensive.
5 minutes from the town. Expensive shuttle service.
Service inexperienced but friendly.
Overrated.

Room Tip: Chose sunset views.

Labuan Bajo is still pristine with perfect location to visit the Komodo dragons and the wonders of the island which is ready to be explored! Most people go to Bali but i strongly believe this island is more beautiful and perhaps the upcoming best thing. And Laprima hotel is the place to stay. Without a doubt the best hotel in town. Its location is hard to beat! close enough to walk to the town but also apart enough to feel you have your own piece of paradise with the best sunset view. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well equipped. The food is great and the swimming pool is amazing, facing the blue sea. The staff will go out of the way to take care of your needs and help you coordinate your excursions either to Komodo or around the island. Strongly recommend it!

We had one day to relax in Labuan Bajo before flying out and it was totally worth staying here - at least at the off-season price around 500,000 rupiah for a top floor room and free breakfast. The wifi wasn't working in the room, but it working (slowly) in the lobby and restaurant. Pool and view were excellent. Buffet breakfast was decent too! Enjoying the sunset from our room's balcony was the highlight for me!

Room Tip: Hotel will include a pick up and drop off! You can catch a motorbike for $1usd into town, though it...
