Had a great stay at the Esplanada, good rooms but not cheap. Great balcony for sunset beers, nice garden and pool, friendly staff, and the base of Timor Adventures company who offer great motorbike and 4WD tours (see separate review)
Hotel Esplanada is certainly not 5 star luxury but who cares! The rooms are clean and comfortable (except for the humming fridge) and the open air bar/restaurant overlooking the sea is very laid back. Food is excellent - I recommend the tuna nicoise and the...More
I have stayed at the Hotel Esplanada on two occasions over the past year. The staff are so pleasant, the food is great, the accommodation relaxing and comfortable. Terrific location, and aspect with views of the bay. Fantastic pool...so make it your choice when in...More
Stayed here for one night, after our extended stay in Oecussi, on our way out of country with our four teenagers. We have stayed in other Dili hotels but this is our favorite. You get a genuine sense of country with lovely, professional staff who...More
This was my second stay at the Esplanada in 12 months. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is lovely. Sitting upstairs overlooking the ocean is an experience not to be missed. Highly recommended.

The hotel is on the Esplanade and across the road from beaches. It also has a small pool as another option. The hotel can arrange airport transfers at a charge with the trip taking 15 or so minutes. Cristo Rei is around the bat from the hotel. Too far to walk, especially given that once their you have to climb many steps up to the statue; but it is worth it.
Enjoy your trip.
