Had a very good lunch at Budi Sun (tries the tuna, the octopus, and some salads, very fresh, delicious). They were fully booked so we unfortunately could not stay there but the staff was amazingly nice and helpful and found us another great hotel down the street. Thanks again!!!
We arrived at Budi sun to find out the room we booked was no longer available. The booking agent traveloka (Indonesian booking.com) had not updated the website correctly.
The manager (Jozef) explained to us in good English what the problem was. The hotel was fully booked for the first night but the other nights we could still stay at Budi sun. So we did not have a room for the night. We contact traveloka via Livechat and explained the situation they involved a special team and where going to call us as soon as they had a solution.
In the mean time the manager called the near by hotels to find out if the had a room for the night. After several calls he found a room in a nearby resort only the price was 3 times higher than what we paid now.
Traveloka called the manager at Budi sun and the came up with the solution that traveloka would pay the room in the other resort so we could sleep there the first night.
So both traveloka and the management at Budi sun helped us really well and solved the problem correctly.
After the first night we spent 2 nights at Budi Sun which is really good. They have a pool unlike most of the other more expensive resorts. And also the food is really good. The are located at the beach so you can choose if you want to swim in the ocean or swimming pool. The staff is really helpful and there English is really good.
We would definitely recommend it to any one staying in or around Maumere.
It is also easy accesible by public bus from Maumere or Moni (kelimutu).
I got there after a long transit & Ridho, the receptionist was so kind! He made a few phone calls for me to figure out the diving & offered me water, coffee during the waiting time. Eventhough I didn’t stay at their place cause it was full, Ridho did everything to help me. Thank you so much!
We had a very nice time at Budi Sun. The sea view bungalow was perfect, nice to sit outside and look at the beautiful garden. The room was big and the bathroom had hot water a hair dryer and everything was really clean! They serve delicious food. This is a real oasis if you want to run away from the hectic Maumere city. Would recomend anytime.
We had a fantastic time at Budi Sun resort and would encourage others to go ahead and stay here. We went for the inside room next to the kitchen and it was great. Extremely clean and not noisy throughout the night when you want to sleep. The managers in charge of guest experience are fantastic and so helpful. Their English is great which is helpful when you have some questions. It was my birthday during our stay and the staff made me feel extra special and made me some lovely birthday pancakes, it was a really nice extra touch. The free breakfast was the best we've had throughout Flores and we had beautiful evenings meals here also. The dive shop attached to this hotel is very professional, The dive master is extremely experienced and we felt very comfortable diving with him. The dives sites we visited were soooooo incredible and we got to enjoy them on our own as there was no other divers in sight. We will definitely be back to stay and dive again! Thanks for a lovely stay.
