        I had a non air-conditioned villa and was exceptional. Private, clean and almost right on the beach yet yards away from hotel restaurant with good quality food and good selection. Staff fabulous! Eager to assist and pleasant to speak with. Thank you Pesba, Albert and my great driver and guide Pete. Took me to traditional villages and megolith tombstones as requested and more. Well spent full day. Walk alone for miles on beautiful white sand beach or sit beside, or in, the infinity pool. Yes there are lounge chairs built right in to the pool! Buffet breakfast great and cook takes pleasure preparing great food to please the guests. Also has air conditioned rooms with great view and 2 new luxury villas right in the beach. My fan worked great. No problem with heat and I was there in dry season. Can't recommend this place and this island enough. Sunset and sunrise for your enjoyment also. Exceeded my hopes and surpassed my expectations. Thanks for great stay. You made me feel at home.

        Stunning location. Right at the beach. Nice staff, good food, comfy bed. ”

        Mario Hotel&Cafe works hard to keep up hospitality on a higher level. The hotel is beautiful located on a 7 km beach. Where you can swim, search for shells and witness awesome sunrise/set. Breakfast is included and delicious. Transport to the airport is 200.000 idr one way. Book at the reception. We stayed last week in the bungalow right at the beach. (20meter) There is no AC, but the van was enough to cool down the room. The mosquito net protects against the creepies and crawlies. The saltwater pool is clean and lovely to cool down. Staff spoke English. Hope to come back one day.

        Lovely hotel in northwest Sumba”

        Pros: bungalow is spacious, has amazing outdoor bathroom with hot water, good amenities (fan but no AC) and amazing view. Beach even if location is a bit remote. Best breakfast while in Sumba with competent buffet options. Great, clean pool. well manicured grounds. Cons:No wifi onsite. 25 min from Tambolaka Airport in rough road (200RP for transfer) Would recommend!

        Owner has no experience in leading a hotel. Manager is missing.”

        This accommodation really needs a manager. There has not been a manager for more than 1 year. Staff is too passive and needs to be lead. The owner does not know at all what is going on. The pool is frequently used by outside guests - especially noisy smoking volunteers who work at the foundation next door - who have not booked rooms. Anyone could use the pool facilities for free which is not fair to guests who have booked rooms. Pool should be cleaned daily and only 6 of 14 pool beds have a mattress. Beds in the bamboo bungalows are too small.

        All the staff, and especially Albert helped us out a lot by arranging a driver to explore Sumba and thinking along where to go

        Nice view with the touch of Bali. Friendly staff & clean room. I suggest that they inform guest there is no wifi/internet connection.
