    Tom and Rose run a relaxed but efficient property in a superb location for divers. The meals were excellent, the rooms were comfortable and in a lush, green environment. The dive staff was great; the kitchen and cleaning crew were very good as well. All in all, a wonderful place to stay for divers--solo or couples.

    Affordable, friendly and relaxing!”
    We stayed here in October and really enjoyed "being away from it all." The staff was really friendly and helpful--both with snorkeling and general island life. The food was tasty with a good variety. The only downfall was the generator had gone out (due to a storm); hence, there was no fan option had night which made sleeping difficult.

    no hot shower”
    food, service, diving guide
    don't stay here if you are the same as me- craving for hot shower especially after the diving. also, bathroom design was terrible. there are hard stones on the floor of shower area, it was very difficult for me to stand there to take a 10 min shower. toilet bowl is right next to shower so after the shower the are would be covered by water, and it took about half an hour to be dry, your foot will get water from floor all the time. otherwise food was really good, always have different kind of dishes which was absolutely lovely.

    Location, Staff and Food
    If you're looking for a real getaway, this is your spot! Gliding into the mangrove forest that fronts Mamaling, you know you are not entering your normal resort. It's a well tucked away paradise, but with all the comforts that a savvy traveler needs. Tom and Rose are lovely, and you'll only wished you had a few more days by the time you leave.

    Nothing other than the sea!”
    tasty meals(3 times perday), quiet, the sound of waves
    Good atmosphere but the owner is always smoking and the air smells badly. You can use wifi if you ask, but it seemes like it's not welcome here. Forget about everything outside of this cottage and just relax and enjoy good 3 times meals. Snaks means just a bunch of banana...the sea was much worse than I visited Bunaken island 9 years ago. The coral is dameged and fish, turtles is less than before. Nothing interesting here anymore. I will never visit again...

    Quiet, customised diving/snorkeling tour
    mamaling is for you if you prefer the followings in your accomodation experience: - staying in a tranquil location where the only noise you get is from raindrops and mangoes falling into your rooftop (when in season) - preferring a mangrove forest over a beach front view - getting into a simple and routine lifestyle where you dive/snorkel/dolphinewatching in the AM then snooze in the PM - connect with ur (interesting and multi talented) hosts and fellow travellers as there will be plebty of communal time during and vetween meals - enjoying almost customised day excursions as Tom has his own dive boats and can provide personalised recommendation. (He can also dive and rescue your lost fins from 27m deep abyss if needed as we did!)

    Great hosts, exceptional food & unique location”
    Hotel staff, quality of food, diving
    The hotel hosts are great people and even better hosts. The diving is exceptional and the operation is well-run. Because there are just three rooms (and therefore less people), the diving experience is quite personalized to what you want to do. Food: Being vegetarians, we haven't had the most consistently enjoyable time with the food in Indonesia-it's excellent, but tough to find food without meat. No problem at Mamaling-we had a different meal every day. They even have gluten-free options- He is a great guy to chat with. Very engaged with everyone at the small hotel. And she prepares all the meals and looked out for us re: transfers to Manado, local knowledge (she's from Bunaken island) etc. Location is unique-hotel rooms on balcony 10m high overlooking mangroves. Mango trees above. All nice High marks. Go there to dive, snorkel or just relax.

    Parfait pour les plongeurs qui apprécient le calme.”
    Nous avons effectué un séjour de 6 jours au Mamaling. Le logemnt est dans un des 4 petits bungalows à la Robinson Crusoë. Le confort est sommaire (pas d'air climatisé et pas d'eau chaude) mais tout est très propre et d'un calme dur à battre. Chaque unité possède 2 chaises et un hamac sur son balcon et d'une moustiquaire et d'un ventilateur dans la chambre. Les repas, délicieux et variés, sont inclus dans le prix du logement. Le lieu est particulier et pourrait ne pas convenir à tous puisque situé en pleine mangrove. Il,n'y a donc pas de vue directe sur la mer (qui est à 1 minute à pied et possède des bouts de plage à marée basse) mais on entend tout de même les vagues et on sent son odeur iodée. Un pavillon central à aire ouverte sert à la fois de salle à dîner et de lounge où les clients peuvent échanger sur leur journée de plongée en prenant un verre (service de bar en sus du prix du logement/repas ). Le sympathique propriétaire Tom, d'origine hollandaise vous délectera d'une de ses nombreuses aventures et vous permettra de vous brancher sur l'internet via son portable. Le Mamling est d'abord un centre de plongée qui vous permettra de profiter des excellentes plongées possibles sur les "walls" de l'île de Bunaken. Le petit bateau et les sympathiques guides de plongée (ou Tom le proprio lui-même) vous les feront découvrir avec plaisir. Le petit bateau de plongée est un peu vétuste mais tout y est pour profiter des fonds sous-marins locaux. Un petit village est à 15-20 minutes à pied de l'hôtel mais ne présente pas d'intérét particulier. Nous recommandons cet hôtel aux plongeurs ou à ceux qui ont vraiment envie de calme car il n'y a à peu près pas d'activité à proximité et les soirées sont extrèmement tranquilles, prévoir de quoi lire ou des films à regarder sur une tablette.

    Localisation, tranquillité, charme des bungalows
    Séjour superbe dans un environnement préservé, le resort est excentré à l'extrémité de l'île donc aucune pollution de la mer venant de Manado, pour nous sans aucun doute un des meilleurs endroits sur l'île où loger car partout ailleurs la mer et les plages sont bondées de déchets venant de manado.

    Sfeer, eten
    Mamaling resort bunaken ligt aan de noordkant van het eiland, ver van de rest vandaag. Het is uitermate geschikt voor degene die rust zoeken. Het ligt ,heel mooi in de mangrove, midden in het groen. Dichtbij is een privestrandje, maar je kan hier alleen komen wanneer het water laag staat. De bungalows zijn eenvoudig, maar erg mooi en schoon. Bij de beschrijving stond incl ontbijt, maar lunch en diner zijn ook inbegrepen en ook onbeperkt thee, koffie en water. Rose is een hele aardige gastvrouw en zij zal er alles aan doen om je verblijf zo aangenaam te maken. Tip: regel het vervoer vanuit Manado via mamaling resort.

    朝、起きたら波のおとが聞こえてくる、いい場所にあるコテージに泊まります。 食事は3食付いて、おいしかったです。ダイビングポイントもすぐそこにあるので ボートの移動時間も短くていいです。 ナイトダイビングの後ホテルまで浜辺を歩くのですが、浅瀬で蛇やヒトデやヤドカリなどがみることができてとても楽しかったです。

    食事がおいしい、2年ちょっと前にできたばかりなので、まだきれいなほう、波の音がよい。
    周囲になにもないので、三食付。ブナケンのホテルは、だいたいそうなのかな。ごはんおいしかった!スイス人のオーナーは、インドネシア人の女性と結婚してこのコテージを建てたそうです。空気がきれいなはずが、オーナーのタバコで台無しなことが残念。部屋は暑いけど、耐えられないほどじゃない。扇風機あります。尋ねれば、wifi使えます。が、あまり文明の機器がウェルカムじゃない感じ。ビーチもないので、本当にダイビングするだけのとこです。9年前と違って、珊瑚も死んでいて、亀も魚も減っているので、もう行くことはないでしょう。。。

    マングローブに囲まれたアットホームなリゾート”
    アットホーム、スタッフがフレンドリー、環境が静か
    8月の夏休みに訪問し2泊しました。有料ですがマナドの港からボートでお迎えが有り約40分から50分位でリゾートに到着します。ボートに乗っている間はブナケン島のビーチやシラデン島などが奇麗に見え息つく暇もありません。時にマグロの群れやイルカも見えます。 リゾートに到着っても桟橋など無くボートから降り浅い海中を歩いてわたります。荷物はスタッフが運んでくれるので問題有りません。リゾート内では、まず近くの島で採取した白い砂が敷き詰められたフロント&レストラン(食堂)があり、その奥に高台のコテージが3棟あります。フロントの左側の傾斜を登るとリゾートが一望できる高台も有ります。 コテージ内は掃除が行き届いておりますが部屋は広くありません。ベッドには蚊帳が吊るされておりバスタオルで飾り付けされています。エアコンは無く扇風機だけですが十分でした。 浴室は温水設備が無いのがネックでしたが慣れれば問題ありませんでした。トイレの流れが悪かったので自分で直しました。 電気は発電機を使用しているためか夜間は使用できますが、昼間15時位までは使用できません。 バルコニーには椅子が2脚とテーブル、ハンモックがあり、ハンモックに揺られ読書も楽しめます。自然と共に静かに過ごすにはバッチリですが、虫には注意しましょう。虫除けスプレーは必須ですね。 ネット環境は有りませんが、オーナーに言えばプライベートですがWIFIのパスワードを教えてもらえます。 食事は3食とも宿泊料金に含まれており、北スラウェシの料理が並びます。前の方の口コミにも有るように宿泊客全員がテーブルを囲んでいただきます。私達の時はドイツから来ている教師のカップルとジャカルタから来た日本人女性でした。 オーナーはスイス人で奥様はブナケン島出身のインドネシア人女性です。お二人とも英語は通じますが、日本語は全く通じません。ですが、スタッフの方は皆、笑顔でフレンドリー、日本語が通じなくてもどうにかなります。チャレンジしてみましょうね! 宿泊費やダイビング費用は日本と比べても格安でボート2ダイブで6000円程度、後レンタル費用1000円等です。飲み物もリゾートの割に安くビンタンビールのボトル1本350円位です。 ダイビング環境は最高で、ブナケン島の海を堪能できました。ソフトコーラルや数々の魚、海亀などが豊富に見えます。また訪れたいと思います。 ホスピタリティが完璧なホテルも良いですが、今回のようなアットホームなリゾートも素敵でした。 最後にスタッフの皆さんと写真を撮ってお別れしました。

    性价比很高,但设施稍显简陋”
    对于包三餐的酒店来说,性价比很高,且出海费用不高,租潜水装备费用较高,建议自备,酒店只有4间房,老板tom很nice,会讲6国语言,不会中文,酒店服务员都比较友好,但基本不会英文。房间没有空调,没有电视,没有互联网,没有热水,不过在岛上大部分酒店都是这样,大堂的wifi是老板的手机热点,限时限量使用。正如之前的评论所说,这里的三餐非常棒,我住了4晚,每餐的菜都不一样,味道比当地餐厅的好。每天上午出海,下午和晚上在酒店有点无聊,不能直接看到大海,且海边黑沙滩不适合直接使用,周边没有任何商店,活动范围较小。上岛坐船的接送费用较高,几乎不可能自己坐船抵达,需要提前与酒店沟通好接送时间和地点。各个潜点离酒店很近,人不多,每天出海都有包场的感觉。
