Just a 10-15 min walk uphill from the town centre, but worth staying in this nice and quiet place. The view over the bay is stunning and the nice pool setting is a big bonus. Rooms equiped with fan, good working airco and coffee & tea. Spacious bathrooms ensuite with even hot water. Management and personal is very friendly and willing to help you with whatever you need. The price is realy fair compared to most other places in town. The older rooms need some work, but according tot the management this is planned. We allready booked for 2014!

We stayed for 4 nights and loved the view and the pool, the rooms are very nice.

The welcome was disappointing. Basically, the staff showed us our room and dropped our luggage there, but that was all. Quite a shock compared to all other places we have stayed at in Indonesia, with very warm welcome and advise on what to do. When we asked the staff, the advice was rather poor. After 2 days we finally managed to meet the hosts and they are very friendly and helpful, so this made up for the rest a bit.

The ambience with other guests was not too great neither. Many people stay for only one day and there is little interaction between different guests.

The location is super, providing a very memorable view from the rooms, restaurant and the pool. It is a simple walk downhill into town of about 10 minutes, and a quick motorbike taxi back for 20 thousand rupiah. Don't let the location interfere with your choice. It's not a big deal. The staff was very friendly and helpful during my stay and beforehand via email.

We stayed with a bunch of friends in the top deluxe rooms before and after a diving liveaboard with Divine Diving. Beautiful place, views forever. Staff super helpful and tasty food. Only downside is the walk to/from town, but the staff were very helpful at booking taxis. Some of the best value accommodation I've ever stayed in!

Room Tip: The views and A/C in the deluxe rooms make them well worth it!

Stayed here with a friend after finishing a 3 day boat tour to Komodo. The rooms are basic but clean and have all of the amenities you need. The pool has an amazing view and it was lovely to chill out on a sun lounger and watch an incredible sunset. You can also get massages at the hotel through a charity which allows people with hearing or seeing disabilities the chance to earn a living and better quality of life.
We ate dinner and breakfast at the Golo and the food and service were great both times. It was also very very reasonably priced.

This is a lovely little hotel on the hill overlooking a bay. It’s up a hill going away from town so if you’re planning on heading out to go diving every day or take trips out to the islands, this hotel isn’t for you. You’ll find the trek to and from town annoying and it costs a dollar each way on the back of a motorbike. The walk is only 5-15 minutes depending on where in town you want to go. However, if you are looking for a day or two of relaxation with a nice view, then Golo Hilltop is probably your best bet. The views from the top rooms are spectacular and each has a little balcony with chairs. There is also a nice little pool overlooking the ocean where you can relax.

The rooms aren’t luxurious, but they are basic and clean with hot water and AC or a fan, depending on your room selection. Their pillows could use a bit of improvement. I stayed in both a deluxe room at the top of the hill and in a lower level room on the same floor as the reception. I would highly recommend staying in the top level rooms, otherwise the price and location really isn’t worth your time.

The staff here were helpful and the included breakfast was quite good. I think they must make fresh rolls each morning, and breakfast is served with French press coffee. Yum! However, you can stay in an equally comfortable hotel for half the price (and also half the charm and with no view) in town. Something to consider.

Room Tip: Stay in the top level rooms. Make reservations.
