“you got nice view if budget is not tight”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2011

1) Cottage room & services are standard,
2) Unique restaurant serving average local food
3) Local customer fishing on deck
4) Bar a bit noisy when there is a wedding or birthday party
5) Pool is standard but water quality quite cloudy. It's pack of people on the weekend
6) Not enough light at night to go around.
7) Expensive

Room Tip: Book room from travel agency will get discounted $

Their room are overprice and overated, don't be fool by the beautiful picture of their place. It's run down and the hotel entrance look like "bates motel". Was staying here because my tour leader book this place. There is a lot of better place to stay for the price this place is charging.

Overlooking the new harbor in Makassar this hotel is easily your best bet in town. Spend a little more and go for one of the bungalows directly by the water – feels a little bit like you're on the Maldives. Beware of the paper thin walls, though: You'll hear everything (and so will your neighbors …)!

We stayed in their "best" rooms - cottage with sea view. Interesting location. But cottages are duplexes and noises easily transmitted from other room. Also pretty noisy from amplified siging in restaurant at night. Rooms need refurbishing. Bathroom pretty basic. No internet. A/C barely adequate. Bed comfortable. Swimming pool nice enough but waterfall evidently broken and needs repair. Breakfast adequate but not spectacular. Entrance from Street is pretty horrible. Cost of room is higher than it should be for the state of the room.

The Pantai Gapura has a great location down on the water. The unassuming entrance conceals a quiet leafy garden that really is the hotel's best feature when you want to escape the heat and noise of Makassar's streets (particularly if, like us, you have just spent 10 hours on a bus getting there). The rooms are a little tired and could use some updating, but on the whole are comfortable, clean and spacious. Did not look in the cottages but apparently these are quite good. Good buffet breakfast overlooking the harbour. Staff are friendly and helpful. The pool is another major bonus with this hotel, though be aware that the pool seems to be crowded with family groups for much of the day and the water was a bit cloudy.

On the whole, a great choice for a stay in Makassar.
