This is a lovely well maintained hotel in Labuan Bajo. It's not centrally located but up on the hilltop with sweeping bay views. It has a medium sized pool set upon a terrace. The breakfast is very nice. We ate there on one of the evenings and it was also good. They offer trips but I am not sure if they are good value as we did not shop around (we paid 900,000Rps for two people for a boat for the day to take us to Rinca and then snorkelling in the afternoon). We preferred the double room to the twin room as it felt larger and cooler. Nice terraces with views. Wifi in the restaurant / pool area. The staff are very nice and the owner is extremely informative. Would definitely stay here again,

We woke nice and early and sat having breakfast overlooking the harbour. We couldn't spot our boat and were convincing ourselves that they had done a runner with the money. When we got down to the harbour our hearts were ...
... to the coral which ended up being quite nice. The chaos of the previous half hour made it hard to really enjoy the scenery. I also quickly realised that I had the wrong amount of weight on my belt. Now that our tanks were about 50 barr lighter had trouble pushing myself down. And at the end of the dive I kept getting pulled up towards the surface. The amount of weight needed depends on body mass, the buoyancy of your wet suit, fat vs. muscle and water ...
... and Rinca islands gorgeous. Holed up in an Italian restaurant for lunch, then A went out to find us some accommodation. Once checked in to Gardena Hotel up on hill we went in search of some diving options for next couple of days. Turned out to be harder work than expected – particularly me getting an upgrade from Scuba Diver ...
