“Nice hotel, great view, good value”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

After having experienced a terrible hotel down to the harbor, this place appeared to be like a paradise to us. Infinity pool, great sea view rooms, big and comfortable beds, air conditioner perfectly working and a lot of space: all of that for just a little bit more than the previous hotel downtown.
Some things can of course be improved: communication with the personnel was sometimes difficult, breakfast quality was average and so was the dinner and in general the hotel atmosphere was quite 'cold' but we were happy anyway.
The hotel is 10/15 minutes walking to the centre; that could be a negative point as you need to call the hotel to pick you up (and always consider a 10, 20 minutes waiting) but at least the shuttle was free (even if I read that other guests had to pay for that, ...maybe we were lucky? .
Surely hotels in this area should offer free shuttle to their guests, to compensate the fact that they are distant from the centre).

It is not a cute or warm hotel, but it has a great pool with sea view.

Food and drinks are nice but overpriced.

It is a bit far from town, but it is a calm place.

One note, think about booking through a booking website to get the room cheaper

Hotel situated 3 min by car/ motorcycle from citycenter. Hotel offers transfer 25.000 rupiah single way/ 50.000 return per group. Motorcycle is 10.000 rupiah single way per person. Swimming pool and interior really good. We payed 600.000 rupiah per night ( normal price 1000.000 rupiah). Room is perfect. Take one with seaview!!!Cold water :(. Breakfast ok.

.....but better priced and closer to the centre of town Labuan Bajo.
Rooms are nice and clean, a bit smaller then in Bintang Flores. Pool is ok with too much chlorine in it.
Breakfast under standard for this class of hotel.
Staff is really friendly and gives a good feel.
The hotel is located beside a little mountain and for that reason it doesn't feel as big as it is aestheticly.

I didn't really want to stay in a Western style hotel in LB but having looked at some other places, they were still as basic as when I last came to LB 14 years ago. So I decided to bite the bullet and stay at La Prima as I was intrigued to see what it was like and I had heard the views were great. Also, I stayed at Golo Hilltop the night before for $45 and La Prima was only $60 a night, for a much better standard of hotel. I arrived and they gave me a room on the top floor facing the water. The room was exceptionally clean and had every amenity you needed. And the view, well, I could have sat there looking at that view forever. And I did, and I took loads of photos. It was just gorgeous. The pool area was lovely as well. I took a stroll onto the beach but I didn't go swimming there - it wasn't as unclean as other reviews here have written but there is still a problem with rubbish washing up on the beaches generally in Indonesia. The only bad thing to say about the hotel is that the food was below par.

This is a new luxurious hotel in a beautiful setting overlooking the bay with a large swimming pool. We stayed in a deluxe room and it was great. Large, corner room overlooking the bay and the mountains with a large balcony. Very comfortable bed, nice linen, pillows still rather hard but better than most! Modern bathrooms, etc. It appears to be brand new but there are maintenance problems that they will need to sort out such as bathroom fittings (dripping taps etc.)
Buffet breakfast was not bad, the staff very charming and helpful. I would stay there again and recommend it.

Room Tip: Get a sea view, spectacular for the sunset.

Beautiful new hotel. Best things are impressive infinity pool overlooking the sea and views from room if you have a sea view. Negatives is horrible service, location out of town, hotel not quite ready. Workmen are still painting, fixing walls, gardens still being planted. Breakfast is a pro and con. Included in price which is great but food in warmers with no heat on so food was cold or slightly warm. Beer expensive comparitively to town and other hotels. Can walk to town easy enough in 15-20 mins if you have to. Shuttle 50000 for return journey which is a little expensive compared to local drivers but convenient. Local restaurants will call for return journey. Food in restaurant is so so - someone said in their review they ate there every day. Lots better options in town for same or less money with better ambience. Service us slow, staff forget orders, ask you twice for room number and pool service is not happening unless you walk up to restaurant and place order personally and keep doing that. Locals are employed which is fine but training needs to be much better. Seems to be no managers which might be the problem. All in all I liked the stay and stayed twice over a week bit look around and compare - don't get mesmerized by the pics of the pool without taking all this into account.
