You have the minimum required for one night : a shower (no hot water), a bed with a net, but toilets without flush... But you can go to the jungle by feet, Waldo is a helpful man and very good guide (we saw the tarsier!!!). The food is good too. So it's ok for one night to see the Tangkoko... More

I rated the rooms as 'poor' because they are below average but I don't think this gives the full picture. Stay here for the tours, rather than the rooms. Great location by the gates to the nature reserve and the tours they organised for me were excellent. Price includes meals-breakfast was basic (toast with jam) but dinner was good and... More

Normally i would give average for the accomodation, but because we had a good time here as a family and they organised some terrifiic tarsier and the famous celebes macaques. The food was okay, but the breakfast was not so good.. The rooms are very basic but what do you expect in the midle of the sulawesi jungle.

First off, the rooms really need a touch of upgrade. It was very basic and quite dark. On the other hand, the staff was really nice and interesting, and food was great (above average)! We also had a very pleasant evening with the owner and his staff, and this was really a thing to remember. The whole experience greatly outweighed... More

This B&B (named after the deceased mother-and-owner of the property, now run by her son) is just leaning on there name in the LP. The food was bad (not fresh, small portions), and the rooms were very basic with just a thin old stinky mildy mattress and pillow and a dirty ' mandi' . For what you have to pay... More

This place was one of the few options to stay in the Batuputih village. The entrance of the Tangkoko National Park was just accross the street from the home stay. When I arrived, the owner welcomed me. He was also my guide for the 5hrs hike the next morning. The owner is friendly and has a sense of humor. I... More

There are only three places to stay if you’re here to see the tarsiers in Saudara Nature Reserve, and this is one of them. I’d guess that all three are basically the same as far as accommodations. All meals are included in the price of the room, and the food was the best thing about our stay here. The food... More

This B&B (named after the deceased mother-and-owner of the property, now run by a cousin) is in one word tolerable. I wouldn't consider staying here if I didn't want to go to Tangkoko. The food is basic but tastes very good. The rooms are old, run down and very very basic. You will need to bring your own sheets/sleeping bag,... More

The only reason why you'll probably even consider to stay here is because of Tangkoko. It's just in front of this place. I would recommend to stay at Mama Roos, the food is good and the rooms are basic but rather clean.

We've read some negative reviews about this place, but when we're there it was nice for the price. The family was super friendly, the rooms were basic and a little bit smelly, but that didn't mattered to us. The food was basic but typical Indonesian and delicious! the location to Tangkoko park is superb. We also went to the beach...but... More
