Thanks for your review. Pay on arrival is because there are people disappearing without paying the bill first. And we didn't know that but it seems to be normal by other hotels also. Thank you again Joanne

Hi Junita im very sorry to read this. I think the staff was afraid to make a mistake again by letting people go without paying the room and the food. it happen not so long ago that people stay at pondok with false id cards (police check this) and disapeared after a few days without paying they're bill from the room and the food. but they where strangers. i will talk to them that they don't have to do that by returning costumers that's ridiculous. hope to see you back again and im happy that you enjoy our hotel.
