We stayed at Sandy bay resort for one nigth only. The cottages are great and very comfortable and the beach is amongst the most beautiful ones at the Togeans. Food and atmosphere could be a little bit improved.

We (22 & 23 years old) stayed here for 5 nights. The bungalows are very clean and every bungalow has got two hammocks in front what is perfect. Also the beach and the reef directly in front of the hotel is awesome. The people who manage the stay there are all very nice ;) greetings to Aspan he is the one who speaks the best english there. If your getting bored after to much relaxing just ask him what to do you can play volleyball at the evening or build some nice decorations out of palm leaf and much more. The food was good (fresh fish from the sea and vegetables) but most of the time not really warm. We booked the hotel from Edy in Ampana he stays in Maria Cottage. I think it's the best idea to book over him course he's one of the only people connected to the islands. If your not in Ampana you can also just write him an email. Greetings, Sofi & Konni

The beach and location are great. The cabins are fine. But the food - to which you have no other choice, as there is nowhere else to eat, is really really bad, hence the single star. We stayed for 4 days and were served exactly the same terrible meal for lunch and dinner. Every. Single. Day. This wouldn't have been so depressing if it was nice, fresh, well cooked food. It was literally the worst food we have ever eaten. Fish, rice and a vegetable. Always stone cold. The whole, very small fish - one per person - always cooked to a point where it was so dry and tough and old you couldn't actally get it off the bones. Any edible cold, dry flesh you could restrieve would add up to about three or four mouthfuls per fish. By the end of our stay we stopped even trying to eat it. On our last evening the owner arrived with a group of investors who were given royal treatment in front of the rest of us - really good Indonesian food - fresh fish and salads as opposed to our tough old, cold fish. And fresh hot nasi goreng and eggs for breakfast as opposed to a single slice of white bread and piece of watermelon. When I asked why we were being treated differently I was told by one of the staff, it’s because they are from the bank, and Indonesian, so they get better food.

We stayed 10 days in paradise! The journey to get to the island was really long coming from Jakarta via Gorontalo (ferry) specially with young kids (2,5 & 7) but it was definitely worth it ! The beach is amazing, the bungalow was nice and clean and most of all the staff was awesome with the kids. Our son cried when we left, he talks almost every day about Aspan, Popoye, Karo,Edy and his others "friends". We will definitely come back! You can easily arranged a few trips from the resort (Bajau village, jellyfish lake, reefs- 1,4,5- jungle trekking...) Keep in mind that this is a remote island so no internet, no phone and few electricity.

The beach here is lovely with crystal waters. However the resort is very poorly run. We booked back in March and arrived after a three hour boat ride to be told that we had no booking. An hour later and a room was eventually located but not the room type we had booked. The next day a German family arrived and the same happened to them. On our final day a Spanish couple experienced the same welcome. It is unbelievably stressful and the people in charge have no idea of how to treat their customers. I think the main problem comes from Edy Lami, who is based in Ampana and runs a few resorts on the Togeans. We stayed at two of his and both had received incorrect information from him about our bookings. The rest of the staff, it must be said, are brilliant. Our bungalow was fine and the bathroom could be improved. The food varied from ok to good. The breakfast pancakes are terrible- so anaeamic and undercooked. The price we paid was more than other places we stayed on the Togeans.
