We stayed here in August 2011 for two days. The cottages/B&B are only accessible by boat and thus the hotel owner's boat picks you up at LabuanBajo harbour. The location is absolutely magnificent. Not easy you will find a location that is so peaceful, remote and restgiving. Use this hotel to relax for there is not much to do, because of its remote location. There are snorkle day trips the French owner organises but that is about it.
About the restaurant: we had to order our dinner choice and a specific time during the afternoon so they could prepare it on time and so we did request our food at 7pm. Don't expect quick and good service. Often, we had to wait for longer than an hour but hey, its holiday right? It gets more annoying if you order food and they simply forget you and you finally have your lunch at 4.30pm.
Anyway, the showers in the huts are horrible. We spoke to a lot of guests and they faced the same problem. Only 2 skinny beams of water to wash yourself isn't rare and the shower cube itself is more than small. Improvement here is more mandatory than recommended but I don't think that Philippe the French owner will renovate within a short period of time.
So, enjoy the vast white beach only populated by the guests of the twelve huts and stay for two or three nights, don't mind the most horrible and smallest shower of Indonesia and simply wait for your food...to wait even longer. Don't get mistaken, the place and location are absolutely unsurpassed but Philippe could turn this place in a true Eden Paradise if he only would improve the restaurant's kitchen and workers and the showers.
Philippe himself also does not know much about Flores so any inquiries about trips on/around Flores are useless. Instead, relax for two days and then move on.
