“Best value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

We stayed three nights at this place and would have loved to stay longer if we didn't have other plans. The rooms are spacious, have private bathroom, ac or fan and an own little terrace/porch. The price is very good and if that isn't enough, you also get a really nice host. We've seen Betty run around all day to make sure her guests have everything they need.

This small guesthouse is one of many in Pangandaran.
But even though it is small, it has a very familiar atmosphere. The dishes and rooms are definitely worth the price and the service is great.
The guesthouse is located in the second row after the beach and the great sea. Just walk 30 metres to the left and you can take a bath. It is very quiet and the beautiful atmosphere is created buy the building itself.
The female owner really has a sense of business but is also very fair. For example we booked the first two nights via agoda.com. Because of that the room was 50000 rupiah more, because of the service charge for agoda.com. After that we extended the stay for two more nights and the owner gave aus the normal price that was 50000 rupiah cheeper.
So if you book it, just do it by calling the reception. Otherwise you loose some cash for nothing.
Enjoy your stay, best regards Robin and Flavia.

Stayed there 4 nights and was absolutely happy with the guesthouse.
It was quiet, although close to the main road, just 30m away from the beach and had lovely rooms. Veeery clean + comfortable beds!
The owner, Betty, is really helpful and friendly, speaks good English and always gives you information about what you can see in pangandaran.
All in all it was a nice stay there, which made our time in pangandaran as comfortable as possible. :)

this is a long over due rating. My husband and I stayed there in February for a week. I can honestly say we both felt at home. The owners (Bety and her husband) were extremely sweet and really made sure we were always ok. The workers were really sweet also. It felt like we became part of the family. The rooms were spotless, breakfast was amazing ( i still think about the banana pancakes) and the location is great. And of course... the free coffee and tea!!! What more could you ask for? This was probably the best experience in Indonesia. We got to experience a lot of local food and traditions because Bety was so willing to teach. The green canyon tour was also a great experience. So much to see and learn! I would highly recommend this place. You'd be a fool if you stayed anywhere else in Pangandaran.

We spend there 3 nights.
Location: Quiet place,far away of mosque, in second line of street, three minute walking distance from beach where you can surf rather than swim.
Room: cosy, clean, big enough, nice esigned bathroom, comfortable mattresses, efficient AC. We had with AC, without mosquito net. There were a few mosquito at room, but definitly not a plague.
Restaurant: tasty food, clean opened kitchen, bottled water used for drinks.
Staff: extremely friendly and helpfull. Beaty, the owner, gives many information which let you organize efficiently your time without spending money at travel agencies and help to organize your further trip (helps to book a train,bus or motorbike without extra fees). They made laundry specialy for us in the evening, what they used to do in the morning.
You can enjoy your stay in this place even if it's raining.

Stayed for 5 nights at Pondok Wulan, Bety and her dutch husband were awesome managers and hosts! The rest of the staff was very nice people, although their english was very basic at it's best.
Free coffee and tea outside every room all day, lovely banana pancakes for breakfast. Nice and clean rooms w/ AC. Shared a double room with an extra matress with two companions.

100 m from a beach with great surf, usually had breakfast and then walked down the beach to Mungil Steakhouse for surfboard rental and lunch.

Definitivley coming back sometime!

We had a great time at Bety's hotel. We were on a budget and this was the perfect place. We had a double room and paid a little extra for another mattress on the floor - exactly what we needed.

Breakfast was great, pancakes and fresh fruit every day. Tea and coffee all day outside our room on the veranda was also a really nice touch.

Bety was a brilliant help and was able to arrange everything we wanted, from surfing lesson to day trip.

On our last day we left really early (5am) to catch a bus, and thought we had missed breakfast, but as we sat hungrily waiting for our bus, one of the hotel boys rode up on his scooter and handed us 3 breakfast sandwiches! Now that is good service - we were immensely grateful!

Thanks to Bety and everyone at the Pondok Wulan.
