We didn't feel welcome at all... I went diving and they didn't ask about my diving license. The dive was very badly organised, no Buddy check or something similar. I decidid not to do the second dive. No one cared about us, thats why we changed the place to stay. The room was falling apart. A very disappointing experience.

The bungalows are simple but comfortable with moskito net and fan. There are 3 meals a day included, good but roughly the same every day. Unfortunately the electricity is often off in the afternoon so no fan and no WIFI but the snorkelling in front of the guesthouse is very good and the diving was pretty cool too. When I... More

Stayed in this resort after picking one randomly arriving on Bunaken island. At the first glance, bungalows looked welcoming, with mosquito protected beds, fancy wooden deck and welcoming staff. Unfortunately, by looking closer, the bungalows are falling apart, the wall of our bathroom was heavily cracked, allowing us to see the outside while having a shower... Termites were everywhere in...

Location, people, cottages, excursions (for divers and snorkelers) and food are super!!! Best backpacker place in Bunaken. You can book before or just arrive there, they will help you :-) Price it was 250000 for person a day with breakfast, luch and dinner (just Bintag it is not included).

I stayed and dived with Daniels for several weeks. The staff are great, especially the dive crew. Really laid back, but informative and know the right spots. The food was always great, with healthy choices. Really great bargain.

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
