After a trip across Flores this place was heaven. I had an ocean front suite with a 4 poster bed and the quality was 4* world class, clean and comfortable. There was a good size verandah and beach loungers right at the front of the bungalow. Service was good and booking very easy. The beach was beautiful as well and they arranged our transfer to airport early morning (in fact woke me up since I overslept and nearly missed the flight). If I am ever in Maumere again I would definitely book again.

We were delighted to stay here at the end of our trip across Flores. We asked to upgrade from the basic bungalow but due to high season nothing was initially available.
After checking in, we realised we would be happy in a basic bungalow although it didn't face onto the beach, it had a very pleasant porch with comfortable seats to sit and have a beer as the sun went down. It also had two double bed rooms which gave us extra unexpected space. All rooms came with good mosquito nets and the housekeeping was very good and maybe not what to expect of this type of accommodation.
The food was actually pretty good and we signed up to the special BBQ evenings which were very well done with local musicians and not the normal sort of thing I would recommend. They also had a decent happy hour on beers which were greatly appreciated over a sunset or two.
The only downside - had to pay for Wifi access and it was restricted to the public areas.

We were very happy with the Premium room, very large and well appointed, lots of hot water and nice deco. Very pleasant outdoor porch area. After 8 days overland it was a joy to spend 2 days here. We have already booked to return in 2012. Next time allowing more time for a trip or two out to the islands from Sea World. The only disappointment was the food at Sea World which was definitely so so.

Our beachfront room was very well appointed and the whole vibe is very relaxed.

Its a black sand beach but the calm waters are great for swimming and the beach is clean which isn't always the case in Indonesia.

For an out of town resort where people are likely going to rely on your meals I thought that it was something that could be improved - it came nowhere near the standard set by other places we stayed in Indonesia.

The receptionist was a little unfriendly, but otherwise the staff were pleasant.

Spend there one night on arrival to Flores. Basic accomodations but great view! Very good when you compare to what you can get in Maumere! Enjoy the place.

We had a 2 week tour in Flores. We stayed here for three nights with 4 people, 2 bungalows. We were given the oldest, most run down bungalows on the end of the beach. It was al dirty and very smelly (especially the old 'bathrooms' ) . Other bungalows and rooms looked better. We asked for another room but all were booked already.
We enjoyed the view on the sea from the porch very much and tried to stay outside as much of the time as possible.
People in the restaurant were very friendly. The food was not so good, though.
I would not stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: Check that you get a new bungalow!

After a 5 day trip across Flores, we spent our last night here. When I arrived and looked at the standard family bungalow (which I had booked in advance), I was ready to leave. I asked to see alternatives - the "suites" at the other end of the property are recently constructed and excellent - USD80, which is relatively expensive for Flores, but well worth it. Other bungalows are gradually being renovated and will then be fine.
The restaurant was excellent, with some of the best food we had on the island and staff extremely helpful and professional - thank you Mary!
So, if you need to stay in Maumere, which I would avoid if possible, this place is fine if you stay in the renovated or newly constructed accommodation.

Room Tip: Stick to renovated or new rooms
