There are currently two Sunset Cottages 3km apart. The one closest to Maumere is shutting down, cause the lease is ending. But Henrick (the owner) opened his new place just a bit further down the road. Here you got wonderful new cottages made out of bamboo. There's a balcony with chairs and you're about 10 metres from the hammock and... More

Location: They've moved to a new location. The new place is Waiterang Beach (near Lena house 1). Do not get confused, because the old place still has the sign, after you encounter that first sign, go 3km further east and you will find the new place. *Pros: 5-10M from the beach, there's a nice colorful house reef, with clear water,...

Electricity runs usually from 6pm to 9pm (generator). The food they have in their restaurant is freshly made everytime and womderful! Henry is a very nice host. All... More

They have got new bungalows. Very simple but perfectly clean. Friendly family. Directly at the beach where you can swim or snorkel. So calm, peaceful. They can organize you a driver if you want to tour flores.

A beautiful secluded place right on the beach. Robinson Crusoe style. Very basic but cozy. Very peaceful and charming. Great staff, very hospitable, positive and pleasant - tried to arrange everything we had in mind. Special thanks to our guide and host Marleno Lopez, we had a great time!

Everything I read is so true: very slow service, only one plug for electricity, basic accomodation, wasp nests in the bungalow, a pebble beach, very few fishes in the water due to bomb fishing practice (in the past...). And nothing much to do around this place... unless you are curious enough to hang around. And let me add that is... More

We stayed here for two nights in August and it was utterly delightful. We had a large bungalow right on the beachfront where we could sit and watch the most beautiful sunsets. It's very simple (no hot water or fan/aircon, manual flush toilet and friendly hermit crabs that share the bathroom at night) but it's pretty cheap and the simplicity... More

Traditional bungalows, built from bamboo,coconut, wood, with thatched grass roof, near the beach far from the road in a nice and peaceful setting. After 2 weeks travelling on ferries, and buses east of Flores, to arrive there was like arriving in paradise. It was just what we wanted: peace, quiet and smiling friendly people. It is like having your private... More

Overall, our boys (ages 6 and 8) found this hotel a bit basic and the cottages could do with a little TLC. There was one plug for the entire resort (no real problem given the paucity of guests at Sunset/ in Maumere) and limited electricity. The beach was also very rocky. All this being said, our family found this hotel... More
