Laprima Hotel

Reviewed September 10, 2013

Stayed here one night after a tiring (but fantastic) three days cruise, and enjoyed resting in the comforts of a western chain style accomodation. The property is quite new, the lobby is airy and bright; rooms are not that big but have all you need (nice bathroom, mini-bar, safe, TV, comfy bed, etc.) with a plus of a balcony with a great view over the bay, especially at sunset. Chosing this hotel is value for money especially when compared to other options, just a little bit cheaper but far away in terms of services and accomodations (i.e.: Bayview Gardens, where I stayed before the cruise - see the review). Swimming pool (and surrounding garden) seemed very nice as well, but didn't have the opportunity to try it. Downsides: 1) bed sheets had some stains, but once called the reception they immediatley sent someone to change them 2) don't go there for the beach 3) it's true that breakfast is not to die for, but could be much worst (...you get what you paid for, isn't it ?) 4) the building is big and, together with other 2 hotels in the same area, have somehow spoilt the originally wild coastline...you may not appreciate it if you prefer more "ecological" options

There are a lot of mixed reviews about this hotel and i was a little nervous booking. Don't be! It was great. The location is just a little way out of town but there is a shuttle form the hotel which is reasonably priced so you can go into town for dinner. We were here waiting for out dive boat. The pool is stunning, and there is a tiny beach at low tide but it is easy to swim in the ocean if you want at any time! But the pool is where it is all at.... The rooms are modern and clean. Make sure you get one facing the ocean so you can see the most amazing sunsets from here. We only had a few snacks by the pool and ate in town in the evening. I would def stay here again if i was visiting Flores

Stayed here for 4 nights.

The pros:

The view from our room was stunning. The room was a good size and was clean.

The hotel has a large pool with free use of towels.

The cons:

Breakfast was awful - they have Danish pastries which aren't properly cooked, it's like they're bought pre cooked but the hotel don't bother to finish them off!

The other food they serve throughout the day isn't good either. I had a rengdang which tasted like a microwave meal.

The sun loungers by the pool are extremely uncomftable.

The tours they sell are very expensive.

The shower in the ensuite is fitted at such a low height that you have to hold it while you shower! Ours also wasn't fitted correctly so a lot of water was wasted.

They offer a transport service into the downtown area but some of the drivers are hopeless! If they don't know where something is, they won't bother asking someone.

The staff need better training in general.

Room Tip: Get one with a sea view

If you was in Labuan Bajo before - you know it's just a village with harbor and a lot of diving centers. So we just tried to have a better place to sleep - and La Prima is a good choice.

Rooms are simple and comfortable, but noisy a bit - a lot of dogs and roosters comes with garden view. And if you are comparing with sleeping on a Komodo trip boat - that rooms are much better.

Personnel is friendly but not all speaking English (but all are trying).

Breakfast is not good - but for one night stay it is't a problem.

Hotel itself is not in a Labuan Bajo, but again it's not a problem - there is only ten minutes walk to couple of restaurants in a town center.

Just good hotel in a village.

Room Tip: Definitely get a sea view room - better view and much less noise!

Hotel itself is fine. Nice rooms with good beds, slept like an angel. Wifi connection is really bad and nearly useless, my 3G simpati prepaid card is faster. Breakfast is really one of the worst I've eher eaten during 10 weeks of travelling asia.

The sea view is magnificent, from the rooms and the swimming pool. The hotel is western orientated but lacks a nice atmosphere. Rooms though are very comfortable and a nice feature is that they generate their own electricity, quite convenient in Labuan.

High light of our stay was a boat trip to ringa and surrounding islands.

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).
