From what we read in the internet reviews, the hotel has a nice beach to snorkel, therefore we booked the place. Our room was on the upper floor with balcony with beautiful view of the sea. The room, however, has seen better days. It needs better maintenance and cleaning, particularly the bed and floor. The bed sheet, mosquito net and towel were outworn, and floor really needs a good mopping. The hotel has quite a good restaurant though. At that time the room price includes free dinner which was a generous offer, because we can order any meal in the menus for free – no limit. As mentioned in the internet review, in front of the hotel is indeed sandy beach. As for the snorkeling, there is a bit of reef life if we swim a bit to the middle, but unfortunately not so colorful because the still good reef is quite deep and the sun cannot reach it. During our visit early of the year, the sea was a bit choppy and jellyfish were in the season, but it was at least better than the area we snorkeled at Jemeluk Bay, Amed. The Vienna beach is a public beach, so expect guests from other hotels coming to visit. We had a bad experience when renting sun bathing deck-chair and beach umbrella. The renting business was managed by the locals, not by the hotel, so bargaining skill is required; and although the price was fixed upfront they still asked for more money when we paid at the end. Tips: don't rent - just use your towel if you want to lay on the beach. There was a dive operator in the hotel which can organise dive trip to Tulamben and the hotel is not far (but still need to travel by car) from the Japanese Wreck site which is better for snorkeling.
