Okay we only stay there for a night for our honeymoon trip across Sulawesi, but it was unforgettable. We choose this place because the review says the staffs is noisy playing music in the night, so i packed my ukulele and my husband guitar, and we go directly here, i know this place will be suitable for us, and i...

I know Daniel's Homestay has received some rather negative reviews, but they seem to be from somewhat demanding guests. Yes, the young staff members do enjoy strumming their guitars and a hearty singalong but to complain about local people who live at Daniel's or close by enjoying themselves is, in my opinion, extremely self-righteous. This has got to be some... More

The manager wasn't there when me and my friend got there. The staff are not that friendly and very noisy at night playing the guitar which seems to me that they just love (lost in their own world) what they are doing without concerning about the guests. Location is very good, price is very reasonable and the food is alright.... More

What a shame! Reasonable huts and a fantastic setting, with some great snorkelling just off shore, but, but, but, terrible service made our stay at times frustrating. When we first arrived, they didn't seem to know anything about our booking. A few of the male staff gave the impression that we were a hassle to them for being there. They... More

Really nice place with perfect coral just 50 metres from your chalet. The staff is friendly and the food was delicious and fresh (mostly fish, vegetable and fruit). We haven't been diving, but snorkel two times a day and seen many fish species, turtles, eaglerays and variety of coloured coral.

I really like staying at Daniel's homestay and have 4 times, BUT I dont recommend it for families or anyone looking for peace and quiet. The more long term staff are friendly and the food is what you would expect on Bunaken. The beach is cleaned each morning but you have to ask to have your bungalow cleaned. It is... More

I spent four amazing days at Daniel's Homestay and I definitely loved it. The staff is kind, helpful and funny and the bungalows are simple and clean. The atmosphere is relaxed and easygoing, perfect for all the travellers who enjoy to share their journey's tips with other people. An honorable mention to the traditional home cooking Indonesian food: everything I... More

Very unfriendly and unpolite staff. The atmosphere was also bad. People just go there to dive and show off. They did not make us feel comfortable at all so we spent there only two nights. The diving was strange. They do not brief before diving and we doubt our divemaster was certified. The food was OK.
