The camp is on an amazing island close to the Komodo national park. The tour that we did with them was amazing! However, the rooms were really hot and made it almost impossible to sleep, there is no fan or ac. When you read other reviews that say there are no fans you think you can handle it but no one we talked to were enjoying the nights. Where the rooms are located you don’t get a breeze at the time we were staying. I would not recommend staying here in December. Also when we first arrived we couldn’t actually book in to do any diving. They didn’t have the morning or afternoon diving available. We were a little disappointed as we had hoped to do more diving than we ended up doing. They also didn’t offer night dives. The dive master stayed in Flores so it was very hard to organise, which was disappointing when you advertise yourself as a dive camp.

We’ve been traveling around SE Asia for many months, including sleeping in tents on the beach, and I can say that this place is the worst place we’ve stayed, especially for the money. It’s extremely expensive compared to almost every other place we’ve stayed in Indonesia, yet there are no fans or AC or walls, and it gets extremely hot even at night. Water from sink smells like septic tanks. We’ve stayed on islands in Cambodia with better water. Food was pretty bad, and again much more expensive than elsewhere in Indo. Atmosphere pretty depressing. Would never recommend this place.

My friend and I came in mid November & rented a 2 person hut on the beach for 2 nights! I expected it to be basic, but the single beds were super comfortable and the mosquito net was very effective, no bites (actually didn't even see any mozzies). The free transport/boat trip to the island at sunset was amazing. The snorkeling from around the jetty (especially out to towards the other jetty) was really good.They charged $50,000 per day to rent snorkel gear which was reasonable. We nearly had the place to ourselves with only 5 max other guests, felt like our private island. THE perfect place to relax! Thing to note: -Food is $125,000 per meal and looked pretty average/western. Eat dinner before you leave LB and bring cuppa noodles/snacks to get you through the days to save yourself the $$$.They do sell nice gelato for $30,000 though! -Free water refills/hot water/coffee. -Tried to charge us $100,000pp for a "late" checkout (10am), but this wasn't listed on booking.com so we refused to pay it. I'd be happy to pay extra for transport/late checkout, if it was mentioned prior to booking. Would definitely stay again in the off season as can understand peak season would be a little manic/staff unorganised. Can't wait to return!

I stayed here with my family (sisters, BIL, nephews & niece) for 1 night before transferring to Labuan Bajo to fly out of Indonesia. I wasn't quite prepared for the adventurous nature of this dive camp ...it reminded me of places I stayed at in my 20s..but I'm no longer in my 20s is the only thing! I'd say this is definitely basic - the huts are just that and can only fit 2 single beds - your bags stay outside. The mosquito netting - I question if it was effective because my sister and I woke up with loads of mosquito bites (I still have the scars to prove it!) - but I'm not sure if it was just us as our other sister didn't have the same no. of bites. There is very little light in the huts and no air conditioning so be prepared for a dark & sweaty sleep. The bathrooms are basic - the showers are unisex and the water is cold. one of the lights in one shower didn't work and mine had a slight smell of urine that wouldn't go away. The lighting of the pathways needs some improvement - I managed to stumble around as it was rather dark, and tripped & gashed my toe. Recommend closed shoes and a headlamp! There was a rather pretty beach to sit at though. Foodwise - you're limited to the bar which has buffet meals which was fine - everything was pretty much fried but that is popular in Indonesia... Would I stay again? Not if I had a choice just because I need more comforts like my own bathroom and comfort. There were plenty of families who did diving trips when we were there so it's ok if you're adventurous & prepared!

Ok, the good stuff first - the island is in a beautiful location and gets stunning sunsets. The little reef off the beach has plenty of fish, the bar staff are pleasant. Adam, the tour guide is wonderful, great with my son and really pleasant and informative. It’s peaceful and quiet except for the sound of the sea. WiFi works well in the restaurant area. Free water refills to be eco-friendly. Superb setting. The staff in the main office at Labuan Bajo are excellent, friendly and helpful. 1. Room. I’d booked a bungalow with twin beds due to travelling alone with my little boy who sleeps like he’s doing Kung-fu (no sleep for me) The room costs 1,200,000 a night with food. On arrival, we were taken to a beautiful bungalow, one double bed. Torn mosquito net (which was replaced immediately I asked) and I was told they’d change the beds the next day. Bed rock hard, mattress thin and uncomfortable, son tossing and turning, I got 2 hours sleep. Incredible view though. The next day when we returned from our tour, they hadn’t changed the beds. I was then told they can’t put twin beds in bungalows and even when I showed them the confirmation email they said it wasn’t possible and that I’d have to put up with it or move rooms. We opted to move. We were put in what I can only describe as the worst accommodation I’ve ever been in. A rickety shack on stilts with mouldy plywood walls loosely nailed together, a rotting floor covered with more splintered ply over the rotten areas. Handrail on the balcony that we didn’t want to touch for fear it would give way. Mould on the walls, exposed electrics, dirty, foul bathroom with the upper part of the end wall above the toilet falling off and banging in the wind. Access was to climb up a very steep ladder type structure. Hut set behind the storage areas/dumping ground for bits of wood, dirty rubbish, nails poking out of rotten wood, unlit on the way to and from the hut. In short totally dangerous and not fit for paying guests! Dirty socks and videos left in the room and I was told by one of the staff (who I shan’t name) that it was staff accommodation and shouldn’t be used for guests. I am not exaggerating, see the pics for proof! Peter, the manager said it was the only room with a bathroom attached available and because I was with my young son who often needs the loo in the night AND it had separate beds I felt I had no option but to take it as the other rooms had a walk through the dark to the shared loos. The main insult to injury was that on check out, they expected me to pay the full 1,200,000 per night. Peter wasn’t available (off the island for a few days) and the interim manager wasn’t authorised to make any changes. So I refused to pay and he eventually rang Peter who offered 1,000,000. Again, totally unacceptable (the cheapest dorm accommodation was 700,000 per night with food and that was clean and comfortable, well lit and safe) We eventually settled on 800,000 and that was just because I wanted to check out and leave ASAP, but I still think it was too much and that disgraceful, unsafe room ruined our stay and we hated being in it. 2. Food - edible, plenty of it but not particularly enjoyable. The BBQ was ok. Again, the same staff member who told us about our room not being for guests said the last chef had been really good and served a variety of proper Indonesian and western dishes but he’d left and this chef didn’t care about quality, and the manager was all about serving cheaper food and cutting costs. This was obvious and the other guests on the island at the time who we shared several tours with felt the same way I did about the food. 3. Tours - exceptionally lovely destinations in the National Park but due to the Xpirates boats being old and very slow, belching out stinking smoky fumes (surely not environmentally friendly?) we didn’t get much time in each place and spent a LOT of time on the boats. We saw numerous other tour boats zipping past us going to the same places and it got to be a bit of a joke on our boat - “there goes another one” Can thoroughly recommend the Padar trip especially as Adam took us to a “secret” pink beach which was deserted except for us where we saw numerous turtles and baby reef sharks. Heaven. Adam was superb and the best part of our stay. Tips - bring a torch. Bring plenty of mosquito repellant/plug ins or coils as nothing is provided. Be prepared to spend ages on the boat. Bring snacks. Bring strong padlocks for your valuables as the rooms don’t even have doors let alone security boxes. Electric goes off at 10pm so charge your devices in the bar between 5-10. I would not recommend Xpirates based on our own really bad experience and we couldn’t wait to leave. Safety is clearly of no concern and they treated a single woman travelling alone with a child very badly. Only giving it 2 stars not 1 because of Adam and the outstanding beauty of the area. Feel cheated and let down.
