This place is just overpriced : room with a bathroom with no real toilets, no hot water, and very very dirty. It was very hard to stay ther with my two children aged 4 and 6. Electricity only between 6pm and 5 am, only one socket in the room, no cleaning of the room (not even a little sweep). The... More

This place sucks! Thanks to the loney planet there are still people coming every day to this place and just stay there because they are probably to lazy to look for some other places! We are sure that this place might have been good some time ago, however, this times are over! Its somehow sad that the people there are... More

Lorenzos is definately recommendable. Lorenzo is a very friendly and funny guy. One night he played music with some friends which was really fun. The rooms are good quality. Some rooms have only a bucket (mandi) and some have a shower. There are also nice hammocks. The food was ok. There is no wifi (can be done at bamboo cafe... More

Lorenso is definetely the biggest atraction in the island after the maravellous diving. He is very kind and friendly and he will do his best to help you have the best holidays in his island. The place and the bungalows are all made with his own hands. It is not the cleanest place in the world because you are almost... More

Lorenso is amazing. He sets the loveliest of vibes at his place, and every night was so much fun! Love his band, guaranteed dancing until as late in the night as you want! Also just so happens to have amazing snorkelling right out front, and as many hammocks as you could hope for. You seriously can't beat the price and... More

I spend 3 nights in Lorenso Cottage in Bunaken. Warm welcome from staff and owner and funny dogs and cats. Small bungalows with a terrasse and hamac in a garden on the mangrove with direct access to the best snorkeling on the coral reef of the island just at 20 meters in front of the bungalows. 3 meals are included,...

I have been to Lorenso's cottages on a number of occasions, as a single, with my wife and with my family. I could spend years there. The people are charming, the food is excellent and the best fringing reef 30 metres from your cabin. See you again soon.

Four nights spent at Lorenso’s Cottages made me fall in love with Bunaken and its people. Bungalows are very basic but if you can, choose among the newly-constructed ones. They have better mosquito nets and less squeaky floors and beds. If you go there for snorkeling, bring your own masks and fins since the ones that are being rented at... More

We stayed here for four nights and while the owners and staff are friendly I think you get better value for money at other places nearby. There is no electricity during the day, no internet and only bucket showers here, but for the same price you can have all of that plus a pool at Two Fish. On the bright... More
