    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

    We stayed for 3 nights and extended to 4 we were so comfortable. The space is lovely. Well away from neighbouring resorts, nestled in the forest, the tranquil vibe is undeniable. We were treated to the bungalow high on the mound, which was very comfortable for three people. Offered up a splendid breeze and wonderful views (especially sunrises). The room... More

    Family run resort. Nice cottages bordering mangrove forest, very relaxed and quiet. Excellent diving with local dive masters who are eager to show you both the small seahorses and the dolfins! Great local meals (also for veggies). Less suitable if you are not a diver: no beach and Mangrove forest view. We have not seen a single mosquito!
