“Dirty Hotel, and expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

I just got back from this Island, We were not expecting alot from a 3 star hotel, but we got a Deluxe room that cost USD 85 a night, a lil expensive for a 3 star hotel in this small city.
When we first arrived in the hotel, we were a little surprised, this place was deserted, When we were brought to our room, it is very simple, and it is fine, but what really bothers me is that there is no internet in the hotel, and the bathroom is not cleaned properly, there were still blotches of paint on the bathroom floor, let's just say their construction and design is kind of messy. Our room dont really have "hot" water, only warm. The only international tv channel is Channel News Asia and TV Monde. The food was horrible, We overheard some loud Chinese guests even bought their own groceries and cooked inside the kitchen themselves. Our hotel room is provided with Breakfast buffet, and everything there, cooked, or ready to eat food, are cold, even if theres a warmer right underneath.
If you really really need to visit this island, I would recommend you to stay in Grand Hartika Hotel, It is a brand new 4 star hotel.

The hotel is new and part of it is still under construction. The quality of the construction is decent by local standard. All rooms have the same size window, which is a standard size. So if you book an ocean facing room your window will be small and not very good for enjoying the view. We stayed in a suite with was a larger room but still only one room not two like the word suite implies. There are plenty of power outlets in the room, which is nice, but there are none by the bed for the lights. The bathroom is a little small with only a piece of glass to separate the shower from the rest of the bathroom with no door. You will end up with a wet bathroom floor, which is common in Indonesia. The sink does not have much room to set your bathroom supplies and the mirror is set low so you have to stoop to see your face.

The beach in front of the hotel is not good for swimming. It is shallow for many meters when the tide is out you can walk way out in the mucky bottom.

We had complimentary breakfast with are room that was served in the covered open dinning area facing the ocean. It is a very pleasant place when the weather is nice. When the weather is not nice or it is windy there is no place to hide from it. The days we were there it was a little breezy which kept the flames from properly heating the breakfast food in the warmers resulting in cold food. The breakfast choices are common local foods. I was surprised to see only one kind of fruit offered every day. I was concerned about eating food that had been sitting out in a cold warmer for an unknown amount of time so I asked if they could make me an omelet and they had no problem accommodating my special request.

All of the staff I encountered was friendly and helpful and wanted to make your stay a good one.

The major bummer for me is they advertised Internet and did not have any in the hotel anywhere.

Since it is a new hotel you should call and confirm that they have what you want since the brochures seem to advertise what they will have when complete.

It is a decent hotel and if you want a room on the island and plan to spend your days seeing the local sites. If you want a nice swimming beach or great ocean views from your room or a resort setting you might want to consider other properties.
