We stayed here for two nights and used it as a place to stay before and after our trip to Komodo Island. The rooms, while very basic, were clean and comfortable. The restaurant, while choices limited, served cheap good food. The staff and Owner were so friendly and made us feel at home. They also arranged a private boat for...

Rooms are clean and big. This counts for all the rooms, I stayed in the deluxe and superior. The upperrooms have a better view. The staff is very nice and not stalker-eager to help you (which is a big plus). The best part is chiling around the pool before sunset, this is the best view from Labuan Bajo! Don't forget...

To be Honest, I don't know the rate of Golo Hilltop. Simply because I went with a tour and I paid for full range. And Golo Hilltop already included. But, tbh, My tour cost was very cheap. Okay, this resort located upside the hill, where all the windows have view right to the beach and sea. Amazing. One thing for...

Lovely hotel set in a series of bungalows on hillside outside of Labuan Bajo. Very friendly staff, helped with booking boat trip to Komodo (which was amazing), also moped hire. Bungalow was comfortable with air con and mosquito nets. Fantastic views especially from the higher bungalows. Nice pool.

This place was fully booked - to be expected as it's beautiful. They were very helpful in referring me to another couple of hotels: Luwansa Hotel or Laprima were recommended. I should mention that finding a motorbike/taxi from here is challenging and should be considered if you are diving the next morning (7:20am starts.) However it's about a 20 minute...

I loved this small hotel, they dont have that many rooms and all seem to have a great view. Ask for the highest level room available just after you book. If you are visiting there to go see Komodo Dragons, I highly recommend NOT booking with a tour company. Rather, fly into LBJ in the morning, go to the shipping...

This was an excellent introduction to Flores hospitality! From the moment I walked into Reception I was helped to feel completely at home. Then there was the stunning view from the verandah of the neat, clean bungalow. It didn't matter that there was no TV in the room - the view outside surpassed anything you'd see on the box anyhow!...

This was my favourite accommodation during my entire 1-month trip to Indonesia, which is saying a lot, because I did splurge on a couple upper-mid-range hotels. The property and views were spectacular., and location up the hill was a big plus for getting a quiet night's sleep. Rooms were simple, but had everything you need, and were above all impeccably...

Arrived at the reception after a short drive from the airport and the view is spectacular from the dining area, pool and rooms, amazing sunsets. Arranged many trips and day outings through Peter the hotel tour guide all were great and at a reasonable price compared to other operators. The rooms are clean a well maintained. I would stay here...
