Good kitchen, bad bathroom: Palapa Beach Hotel

Palapa Beach at 17 km south of Singkawang seems to be the first choice for townspeople to spend a weekend. But we came on a weekday and were the only guests at the hotel. We intended to stay two nights and spend the day in between on Randayan island. Even had brough our snorkeling gear. But... we found out what they do not say in the Lonely Planet guide, that the minimum group size for a boat to the island is eight. Pay eight times Rp 190,000 for the two of us? No. So we drove on to Singkawang after one night.
On weekdays the room rates are discounted 20%. We had a standard room for Rp 240,000 (October 2014), add 8% tax. We being the only guests one might have expected that the reception could find us a room in good order. But all bathroom equipment was defective. The shower head was missing, the toilet reservoir continuously overflowing and they had put a bucket under the washbasin to collect the water leaking from the siphon.

On the other hand, we recommend the restaurant. Tasty food for modest prices and served in a miraculously short time considering that may have had to start up the kitchen just for us. We enjoyed our dinner at nightfall on the terrace with sea view.
It consisted of: nasi putih Rp 6,000; bawal asam pedas Rp 35,000; cah kailan Rp 15,000; cap cay sea food Rp 18,000; (fake) es kopyor Rp 12,000; pure orange juice Rp 15,000.

Prapatan Hotel: Downtown Hotel

Prapatan Hotel is more efficient located on downtown. Is easy to find food, restaurant even ATM just beside the Hotel.

Downtown, clean, standard, Karaoke....It is good enough for small town. But always fully book during the High Season ( Cap Go Meh, Holiday )
