I stayed here for a week while doing my Open Water certification, in a 40$ room in guesthouse 1 - not cheap when you're coming from Indonesia, but prices in East Timor are a lot steeper. The room and the common area were clean and cleaned daily. Basic bath facilities are shared between the three rooms (although at the time...

Stayed here with my wife on holidays last month, as we are keen divers and were looking forward to a relaxing break in Timor. Had only a short visit but would say in general that accommodation wasn't in good repair - biggest complaint was that bedroom airconditioner filter hadn't been changed in a long time. Everything, including mattress smelled mildewy...

Last week we made DTL our base in Dili. It was a great decision, as every aspect of our stay was perfect. We booked a deluxe studio apartment which was situated at the back of the complex, away from the road and next to the pool. What a fabulous outlook. The pool was clean, and refreshing and doubles up for...

The Dive Timor accommodation has a range of room types. I stayed in one of the bunk rooms with air-con that had a communal shower, toilet and kitchen. This was a perfect set-up. It was comfortable and was cleaned and maintained every day. The premises are tropical in style, shaded and you are quite secluded from the outside world. There...

I have stayed twice at the Dive Timor guesthouse, and both times has been an excellent experience. The rooms were modern (remember we are talking third world here), with very comfy beds, lounge, fridge and kitchen, and a great outside lounge area as well. Staff were friendly, and spoke good English. Location is on one of Dili's main esplanade roads,...
