Hotel is located in a nice elevated position with lovely views - away from the dusty and unattractive town of Labuan Bajo. Being out of town (20 minute walk) means it's quieter and less dirty, and also just a few minutes walk from nearby Paradise bar for a sundowner with fantastic views. The highlight of the hotel for us was...

The good: 1. Judith and Ingrid were extremely responsive through emails and thorough with their replies. 2. I booked through Agoda.com and was able to arrange for a pick up from airport with the hotel. 3. All rooms have seaview and the entire hotel is filled with plants and flowers of many types. The walkways are well lit at night....

We stayed at Golo for 2 nights in October while we took a 1 day tour to Rinca island. The staff was very friendly, the airport taxi we arranged was timely, and the room was basic and clean. We ordered carry-out pizza and burgers, which were delivered to the hotel. The pool was beautiful. Wifi was only available in the...

Many thanks to Judith and Ingrid for sorting and organising both the accommodation at their hotel and the tour (Flores overland 10 day tour). All aspects were exemplary and they exceeded our expectations. Nothing seems to be to much trouble for the owners and the advice offered by them is not only invaluable, but also saves you money. Can't fault...

Very nice place to stay, great (sunset) view on the ocean from the pool. Very good place to relax. As the name already reveals, it is on the hill-top, you have climb a bit or take taxi. Food was not great, so better go outside for a nice meal.

Only a short stay, but the view was amazing from our room. It was comfortable and clean and really good value for the price considering surrounding options. It's a little way out of town, but there's not too much to do in the evenings anyway. The staff were really helpful, sorting out a take away breakfast for our early departure...

Stayed there recently prior to multi-day trip to Komodo/Rinca and appears this is why most people are in Bajo. One of my concerns was whether we would be offered transport by our adventure company from the hotel to the docks, given it's location. They didn't seem to mind at all and it's a relatively short distance to the docks/main area...

This is a lovely place to stay, away from the hussle and bussle of the town, just a short walk away. They have thought of everything here and the staff are fantastic too. Very good value as well. Free wifi that works well. The meals at the restaurant are basic but good.

From start to finish our stay went as smoothly as clockwork. Staff all excellent... Special mention for Leos who made our stay that little bit more fun and enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in unit 1. We thought this was ideal. Still a great view, on the same level as reception, breakfast and pool, very close to...

This hotel proves that you don't need to spend so much to feel comfortable. Our good experience was started since the booking process. We booked by email and communication was smooth. We appreciate the airport pick up very much as it cut any unnecessary hassle out. The room was really clean with air conditioning, and to be honest, there isn't...
