“Interesting cave”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

The cave was interesting, and I enjoyed the challenge of climbing to the top of the rock. The experience was ruined by my guide who kept on trying to feel me up. Not recommended for single female travellers!

“Nicer than expected !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Take a bemo to go to the caves (no signs on the road), and walk back to the city center.
No need to hire a guide.
The caves are as small as impressive.

“Unique but it can be improved”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We were visting Batu Cermin Cave on the way to Ruteng from Labuan Bajo. The site and cave are interesting. You can see clearly that the rock formation was under the sea. The guide was friendly and could explain the history of it.
The site can be improved by showing information board that explain the theory behind the cave.

“Its ok but not great. No spiders.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Its a very short drive out of town. A little pricey for the guide but all money seems like it pays for maintenance and protection so that's good. Guide pretty good. Cave is pretty ordinary if you have done caves before. Nice helmets supplied...not smelly at all so may havebeen rereplaced since earlier review. The spiders are not spiders as they only have six legs so cannot be poisonous like other reviews have mentioned. The guides make a point of finding one as a bit of a point of interest but not that exciting unless you like big bugs. Not spiders. The mirror effect is not that cool either. Visit middle of day for best effect. Bring water. All in all not worth planning a big trip around but if you have time it's ok and I liked it. A little bit of bending which is fun to get through small bends so no good if you have a bad back or inflexible.
