With the best house reef straight out from the beach, this resort is ideally positioned for snorkelers and divers. Manager Erny does everything to ensure that you stay is pleasurable. For me this included arranging a massage and fresh coconuts. The entire staff is very helpful and courteous. The rooms are basic and be sure to read about what a...

Erny was great at returning emails quickly and efficiently. We had some issues with our visa and arrived 3 days later than expected and she accommodated us without forcing us to pay a penalty which was very kind of her. She also organized for a private boat to pick us up from the harbour to take us straight to the...

The gardens alone make this one of the loveliest places to stay on Bunaken. If you are looking for good accommodation and excellent food all in then this is the place. There seem to be a variety of rooms to accommodate larger families or couples or single traveller. Aircon is available in some too. There is a beach just for...

First of all: the bad reviews i read were all of older date. The room was good maybe a bit old but good size and good new bed. Plenty of power plugs. Hammock in front. Towels for bathroom and beach. Plenty of space for drying clothes outside. Nice garden view for us also some bungalows with beach view / seaview....

Bunaken beach resort is a nice hotel with basic rooms (bungalows). As non-divers, we wanted to stay in a place where it's not just about diving, and where we wouldn't get 'discriminated, for not being interested in dive tours and such. This place was just what we were looking for. The atmosphere is relaxed the staff is friendly and helpful....

This place is great for budget stay in bunaken. They also offer diving (no courses). Erny is the manager and she is a very sweet lady. Because it's an island/volcano the shower is sort of salted and smells like sulfur (but I guess this counts for every place on bunaken). The included food is great! Very delicious and plenty. Had...

I came here for Christmas on 25 December so the public boat didn't run,however I got lucky and chartered a boat with other tourists in Manado Harbour. Otherwise Erny, the very kind and hospitable owner of BB Resort can organise a private pick up for you. Anyway, it surprisilngly wasn't very busy on the island over Christmas so no other...

Stayed for 3 days at this resort. The place is basic but clean acc. to Indonesian standard. Good price quality. Price incl. 3 meals a day. Meals are very tasteful and always fresh. Menu is the catch of the day. Beautiful spots for diving and snorkling for a reasonable price. Beside these things there is not very much to do...

The food is plentiful - you won't go hungry! You can snorkel about 100 metres off the beach. It's lovely to come and chill out here for a few days. The rooms are basic, with cold salt water showers. There is no wifi and the power frequently cuts out completely. I wouldn't recommend diving here as the equipment is a...
