    A number of points: My room was in need of maintenance that had not been done for a number of years. The bathroom was not clean. Stains on the toilet seat. A breading ground for mosquitoes. Had to spray room numerous times.

    Had a great stay at the Esplanada, good rooms but not cheap. Great balcony for sunset beers, nice garden and pool, friendly staff, and the base of Timor Adventures company who offer great motorbike and 4WD tours (see separate review)
