We stayed here for 4 days, and got a little bored in that time. The resort is very well kept and the rooms are nice (we had a free standing bungalow with no immediate nighbors) with hot water and modern toilet facilities. The bed was not the best one. The restaurant serves ok food, but you have to order it at least an hour before wich was a little annoying. Free wifi vas nice.
The resort offers tours with fairly interesting destinations, but they are quite expensive. E.g. a trip to the Tangkoko nature reserve costs 70€ / person including drive there and back, guide, lunch. We were happy though that we could mix and match the destinations and build a day tour with just the attractions that interesed us. But after that there was not too much to see for the rest of the days. We did walk on our own to the Kali waterfall which is a 2 hours walk from the resort, and a very nice one!
The weather in November can be really crabby, one day it was pouring rain the whole day, and other days we had some showers and mist as well.
