Bruce and Kathy were informative and helpful and gave me a ride to town one day which I appreciated. The beach setting is very relaxing and a bit of an oasis after the bustle... More

What I will remember the most is the the warm welcome of Kath and Bruce (the owners) the conversations and sharing we had were simply lovely... More

Food component was very exiting with emphasis on organic, healthy dishes. Limited menu did not stop us to have most of our meals in house as they were imaginative and well priced. Good wines at law prices. The service was very attentive and personal including some unique features like free laundry service and you can join daily trip to the... More

Not sure how many times we have stayed at Beachside Hotel now. Still the most outstanding hospitality in East Timor. Immaculate rooms including fantastic breakfast, well trained and obliging staff, beautiful location, excellent food. Bruce and Cathy are the most outstanding hosts and nothing is too much trouble.

A wonderful, relaxing destination after 5 weeks of travel in Timor-Leste. So close to beautiful, well shaded and clean beaches while still being only a short taxi ride from bustling Dili. Rooms are spacious, well serviced and very comfortable. Staff were friendly, efficient and eager to accommodate all guest needs. Bruce and Kathy were excellent hosts whose experience and knowledge...

Very clean and comfortable accommodation. Great staff and friendly hosts. Kathy and Bruce ensured that we had all we needed. Minor issue with no night time restaurant meals on site, on most days but close handy to good food. Light meals available until 7 pm. Breakfast good and lunch options very good. Breakfast on the beach was a great way... More
