My wife and I stayed in Mamaling for a week in June and we absolutely loved it! The hotel is nice and neat. We stayed in the hill side bunglow, which is slightly more expensive but definitely worth it. We went out for snorkeling everyday and stay in the restaurant reading bar in the afternoon. The food is amazing. The... More

Wonderfull destination to relax and practice your diving skills. Delicious meals with lots of variation! We were there for 6 nights and couldn't get enough. Very nice rooms, very clean! The dives where amazing, Tom and his staff where friendly and helpfull in everything. We would definitely recommend Mamaling to anyone who visits Bunaken!

This may not be the place for you if you need nightlife with fancy cocktails, hot water for your shower or air conditioning because you won't find them at this resort. However, if you want to play Robinson Crusoe, with tasty fresh food and a comfy bed with a mosquito net, you can do that here - there are no... More

Once again (now the 3rd time) we visited Tom & Rose's Mamaling on Bunaken. It's a perfect hideaway, providing excellent diving and delicious food as well as comfy bungalows. There is neither entertainment nor TV nor shopping. But who needs distraction while staying in paradise?

Just stayed there for 6 nights with my family, occupying two cottages. We enjoyed the vacation partly because there was no internet connection while we were there so one could truly take a break from the world. The owner Tom was friendly and pleasant. He made a point to engage in conversation with the guests every night. The food was... More

This place is one of the highlights of our Sulawesian trip. We have stayed here for about 10 days. Much longer than we are used to stay in one spot. It is a great startingpoint for diving- and snorkelingtrips. The reef starts right in front of the small scale resort. Even in small pools young batfish grow up. Tom and... More

The place is a hidden gem in a mangrove forest/beach! Stayed for 4 nights, enjoyed every moment! Bungalow was really nice and cozy, very clean and comfortable. Tom and Rose were great hosts and the whole place had a friendly and cozy atmosphere. Divers and snorkelers equally welcome. Food was excellent!

After an extended stay we happily give full 5 points to this awesome place. All in all, this was a wonderful experience and we consider ourselves lucky to have made this choice. Email communication before arrival was friendly and contained helpful advice about the resort and the island. Pick-up at the airport was smooth, and once we set foot on... More
