The resort is basic for a fair price. Felix, the resortmanager and also divemaster arranges things well. The cottages are reasonably comfortable and lie in a flowerfilled garden close to or on the beach and get cleaned on request. The food is simple, but good. The beers vary from room temperature to ice cold so ask in advance for chilled... More

We really enjoyed our stay there and to our knowledge it is the best money value option on bunaken island especially when it comes to diving! Diving is great, and even for beginners very nice! However you really need to talk to the divi big crew as they are easy going on the edge to being a little too careless...... More

We spent three nights at Daniels. It is a great value for money - basic but clean and comfortable bungalows around a nice garden, good and diverse food and friendly staff. We also planned to do some dives. The diveshop has good prices, but is highly unprofessional. Not once were we asked about our diving experience and certification level. They... More

We spent just 2 nights in Sep. 2009. So I remember beautiful garden, very simple cottages, simple dining hall. The level of accommodation is corresponding with the price. The food is simple also but very tasty. The great magic of the place is hidden under the water anyway. We are not the divers, so we really enjoyed snorkelling (the best... More

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
