A very nice Hotel to have some rest in a paradisiac place or to do water sports, trekking and do a city tour. The facilities are very good and if you are lucky enough you will get a room with view to the lake. The restaurant has tradicional and continental food.

I stayed there for a night. Decided to check in without an online reservation and was lucky to get a room. The accommodation was rustic with a pleasant view of the lake. The room is pretty basic. Good enough to take a cold shower, because there is no hot water, and to sleep. The condition of the bed was a...

We stayed in a twin room in one of the separate cottages with the batak design with an incredible view. The room was huge with a private bathroom and seating area outside. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is great and close by to shops and restaurants. They have a private beach area with Sun beds and...

We stayed in economy beach room (no.25) for 3 nights. The view is awesome, the room is old but value for money (180k tips). Nelson from the front desk is very friendly and polite. Fried fish with tomato sambal from the restaurant is very nice. Avoid corn soup as it was terrible. Breakfast is average. All ferry to Tuk2 will...

It's a beautiful place, very natural and we enjoyed the view from every corner. The room of this hotel is the worst thing about this trip. Bathroom full of ants, smelly, broken furniture. We paid IDR700,000 per night, not worth it at all. There are many other hotels with much lower price, and most importantly beautiful and well maintained.

From the outside Carolina hotel looks quite nice, and I'm sure certain rooms are fine too. Ours however (room 5) was faaaaaar below standard. Dark, unclean and dilapidated. Mercifully, the bed was rather nice. We've uploaded some pictures of broken furniture, a collapsing shower, a super-filthy sink and an ant-infested toilet. With the notable exception of one very helpful (and...
