We give one star for the food (tasty, good variety, large portions) and one star for the view (seaview from many of the bungalows and the large eating area). After a 5 week trip in through indonesia, in mostly budget accommodations, this resort sadly was a disappointment. I have to add, that the weather wasn't that good when we were... More

There were 10 of us staying a week and diving. On arrival there were no bed sheets no towels and, worst of all, no toilet paper! We gave them 9 months notice - so NO excuse. The beachfront location is good and the staff are friendly and helpful and try their best to make your stay pleasant but the management... More

I didn't stay here but thankfully happened upon it after trekking from the other side of the island. The bead is amazing and it appeared that it's being raked and cleaned regularly. There are long term guests there so I think that says a lot. After I finished snorkeling out front I went up to get my stuff and the... More

This resort is ideally placed with a stretch of beach and coral in front. The staff is friendly, the cook is great but the management is not. Arrived with reservation, but no cottage available, had to stay in small room for 2 nights. The newer cottages are well-equipped and nicely placed. Under better management the place could be perfect.

The view over the only big strip of beach on Bunaken is amazing, and once in a while you'll see dolphins come by. Just off the coast you can go on amazing snorkelling trips, though it is advisable to bring your own gear if you have it. The cottages are well-built and well-furnished, but could use some maintenance and thorough... More

With one of the best views on the island from your room this is certainly a good place to stay in bunaken if you are on a budget. Its great to stay here if you are diving somewhere else as they dont have dive facilities here. For example it cost 350k a night here while two fish is a staggering... More
