We were glad to find this place to stay in Riung. The hotel was nice enough with a garden, dining room and snorkling service. It is next to a power plant but you hardly notice it. staff was friendly. Breakfast very basic. The hotel is next to Murah Meriah, a lovely warung to eat. At nighttime you can browse the... More

Our room and bathroom was clean enough, everything here is really basic. This is a good accomodation if you only want to sleep! DO NOT EAT in their restaurant, its not worth the money. After the long drive to Riung we have been exhausted and wanted to have a quick dinner and a cold beer. First we´ve been surprised about... More

I don't think there are many choices in Riung and this one is probably the best but still far from being even a mediocre place.The rooms are spacious but not well kept. The bathroom was in tragic condition. The toilet didn't flash so the bucket near it had a purpose. Although there was an air-con in the room, the upper... More

Really enjoyed our stay at this simple lodging. The rooms and bath rooms were very clean. The staff were especially kind, friendly and helpful. The biggest point was the honesty of their staff. I accidentally left my mobile phone under the pillow when we checked out. They called our driver informing about their find and had it mailed back to... More

The hotel was swamped with mosquitos. the water was cold and smelled terrible. there were many cockroaches. the surrounding village was very dirty. the area around is supposed to be famous for snorkling however i mostly saw death corals. when sailing on the water the environment is nice though. an interesting sight to go seeing are the bat colonies hanging...

We stayed during 2 nights at Pondok SVD. As LP says, it's near the town's electricity generator so some rooms might become noisy (it was ok for us since we sleep with earplugs). No real service or reception, but the girls managing the place are always reachable. OK breakfast available early which is good. Note that it's a bit further... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, in the rooms which are down the drive, away from the noise of the generator. I think this is best as it is away from the kitchen and other activities which involve lots of staff. The staff are all young and lovely. It is obvious that they are all really happy to be there....

This hotel, may be better call it a hostel, has clean rooms, remotely situated. There is lot of room for further development of this place. Food and service are very basic and modest. so stay the night here and during day time go to the 17 islands to enjoy the giant bats, the corals, and the wonderful nature.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for 2 nights. The place was very clean, the beds comfortable, and the garden was pretty. Breakfast was nothing special, just some bread and jams. It's not a luxury accomodation, but considering the remoteness of the town, I think it's great.
