very very very bad service!!! just because we're indonesians, the hotel staffs didn't think it was important to give us good service...good service for foreigners only??? we left the hotel at 5 am to go to rinca island, there was no electricity so it was very difficult to walk down the steep stairways carrying our luggages and 2 small children while it was still dark...one staff was already awake at that time but he just sat there and watched us struggling to reach the hotel lobby...he didn't even help us to get on our boat...lousy service indeed!!

This is a quiet, relaxing place. The food is very, very good too.

The rooms and restaurant area are very well designed and the views from the rooms are spectacular (although some involve a lot of stairs to get up and down if that is an issue for you - if so, the rooms with fewer steps don't have as good views).

The main let down was the beach. The sand itself is a little coarse and has a greyish tinge and is not as attractive as on the islands near Labuan Bajo.

But that's ok, the main problem is that there is a lot of litter on the beach. This becomes a big, big problem once you get twenty metres or so away from the resort either way which makes beach front strolls less than pleasant.

But even in front of the resort some rubbish appears on the beach and sea - maybe we were just unlucky with the way the tides were working from Labuan Bajo so it may not always be like this.

You can get return transfers to Labuan Bajo (about 20mins each way) with the boat waiting for an hour about US 13 dollars. This is during the day only.

There isn't a lot to do here (which is kind of the point I think), but you can do a walk to the top of the hill behind the resort for expansive views over the bay and across the other side over Flores. The resort recommended this walk to us, but it is not at all marked and there is no real path.

Its short and sharp, so doesn't take long. You take the steps up from the restaurant until they run out at the last building. From here, three paths run left. Take any. Within a minute they converge on a fanit path through long grass. Once that runs out after another couple of minutes you should notice a ridge a few metres above you. The task is to get up that ridge, but there is no path. I found it difficult to directly attack the ridge from here and found that if you walk along for another couple of minutes you can find a relatively easy way up (but still with a little scrambling).

Once on the ridge, walk directly at the hills in front of you and within a minute you'll come to a four wheel drive track. Follow that to the left.

After a few minutes there are a couple of left turns in the road where it is noticeably easier to access the hillside. Use either of these points to access the hillside.

From here there are three hills to choose from, just make your way up any or all, the going isn't too difficult but again no path. Any of them you'll be up within ten minutes from the track. You can do all three within twenty.

We stayed at Hotel Waeicu Eden Beach for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. We spent the days taking photographs, trekking around the surrounding hillsides, kayaking and just lounging around and reading as they have created a half dozen super comfy spots for chilling out. our room was great and the overall, the whole hotel is really quite beautiful and wonderfully built with loads of attention to the small details. Really the place borders on paradies, especially with the incredible view and the fact that it's a 20 minute boat ride away from Labuan Bajo, meaning that there was wonderful peace and quiet.

The only things that we didn't like were all the flies which made daytime meals a bit bothersome, the often poor restaurant service (as noted in previous posts, this hotel helps out a local tourist school by employee high school students who want to work in the tourist industry. Unfortunately, this means that service is degraded though at the same time, it's an altruistic move).

And finally, I was bitten by one of the hotel dogs. The owners were helpful in getting me to the hospital to get my rabies shots and tetanus shots and gave us a free night in the hotel as compensation. Unfortunately, they have seem to have no intention of doing anything about their dog. As noted in the previous post, previous guests have been bitten by this dog but the owners have done gotten rid of the dog. This is a big concern as Flores is well-known to have rabies and to have a biting dog at a hotel is totally irresponsible. If the owners had promised me they would put down the dog, then I would have given this hotel 5 stars, but even the last night that we left, they still had the dog in the restaurant amongst customers. Even if they love that dog, I hope they still do the right thing and get rid of it. You cannot have a biting dog at a hotel amongst kids (and adults). After I was bitten by the dog I could no longer snorkel or dive as I didn't want to get the bite infected, and this really impacted by trip.

Room Tip: If you are elderly or don't like climbing stairs, request one of the lower rooms as the hotel is...

One of the best and most peacefull beach hotel we have experienced in Indonesia and Tailand. Location is perfect on a nice beach with fantastic view and direct snorkling. Rooms are perfect with fantastic balcony and viw on the sea. Beach is perfect with even shade from trees in the morning. Access to Labuan Bajo by boat in 15 min.

Few easy improvements are required:
- service in the restaurant is much too slow
-welcome and information about what to see in the area to be improved
- rooms not cleaned if not requested...
- no soap in the bathroom, no portable lamp or candle in the room while there is no electricity at night...
- too many cats and dogs ( our daugther and 2 other customers where beaten the same day by a dog !!!) and the owner even did not call a doctor...

But overall experience is VERY Good.

If you are looking for a place to relax on a beach for so,e days this is the place to be...

Even though we found out on our arrival that our reservation got lost and we were only left with the option to upgrade to a more expensive room, we still stayed at Waicicu for a couple of days but found it underwhelming. The reef in front of the hotel is far worse than what you can find in other resorts in the area, and the steep steps make the stay there quite challenging (we counted 135 steps to reach our room!)!
Food is average, service slow and average, but views are beautiful.
Not advisable to travel from Europe all the way to Flores to stay at Waicicu.

Room Tip: The best rooms are uphill, but really difficult to reach as steps are very steep and lots of them! S...

My husband & I stayed here in June and have mixed feelings about the place. The staff were great and very helpful and the view was fantastic, but the steep stairs leading to the rooms were a challenge especially as our room was at the top and it was a little dangerous at night. The rooms were clean, basic and quite comfortable. The power goes off in the late evening which means no fans or lights, a torch comes in very handy. The restaurant is just ok, breakfast consists of pancakes with chocolate sauce (because the owners are french) the rest of the food was basic but nice, we didn't like the amount of cats and dogs hanging around in the kitchen including on the preparation benches and under your feet in the restaurant. The beach here is very littered and there is very little to look at under the water, although the water is perfectly clear and blue there are no fish or coral. We dont think we would return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a front balcony with NO trees in front of it.
