The accommodation is quite limited in riung but we stayed here after lonely planet recommended it. The room was fan only, quite basic but comfortable. Resonable price with breakfast included. Once we checked in we took a walk to the pier to find a boatman for 3 a snorkelling trip, managed to get a good price that way. The best...

As soon you arrive the welcome is very warm. We had a lovely stay mostly because of the nice staff. The room is clean, we had a seperate sitting room and a sit outsight. What more do you need! In the morning a lot of tasty banana pancakes!

A very basic place but charming. Small rooms, cold showers (but not a problem in the heat). Breakfast is very basic and realy nothing special. You have to pay for the wifi but the kids figured out a cheat! also you have to pay for the ac!

Since there is not a big choice of guesthouses, it was quite ok. The rooms have only a bed and an AC. The shower is just cold, but for the hot weather its ok. Don't expect anything. The breakfast is ok. Next to the hotel there is the village generator, which makes it very loud, but in the room its...

We were glad to find this place to stay in Riung. The hotel was nice enough with a garden, dining room and snorkling service. It is next to a power plant but you hardly notice it. staff was friendly. Breakfast very basic. The hotel is next to Murah Meriah, a lovely warung to eat. At nighttime you can browse the...

Our room and bathroom was clean enough, everything here is really basic. This is a good accomodation if you only want to sleep! DO NOT EAT in their restaurant, its not worth the money. After the long drive to Riung we have been exhausted and wanted to have a quick dinner and a cold beer. First we´ve been surprised about...

I don't think there are many choices in Riung and this one is probably the best but still far from being even a mediocre place.The rooms are spacious but not well kept. The bathroom was in tragic condition. The toilet didn't flash so the bucket near it had a purpose. Although there was an air-con in the room, the upper...

Really enjoyed our stay at this simple lodging. The rooms and bath rooms were very clean. The staff were especially kind, friendly and helpful. The biggest point was the honesty of their staff. I accidentally left my mobile phone under the pillow when we checked out. They called our driver informing about their find and had it mailed back to...

The hotel was swamped with mosquitos. the water was cold and smelled terrible. there were many cockroaches. the surrounding village was very dirty. the area around is supposed to be famous for snorkling however i mostly saw death corals. when sailing on the water the environment is nice though. an interesting sight to go seeing are the bat colonies hanging...
