This place is perfect for your dive stay in Bunaken - basic room, delicious food, very lovely owners and staff! You have all-around-service with tranfers, accomodation, meals, diving experience (equipment rental, boat etc). We were a group of six ppl, all with different diving experience but Murphy, our guide, showed us sites which everybody enjoyed! Highly reccomend!

We stayed at Cakalang Bungalows in Bunaken in May for 6 nights. After looking at several other places in Bunaken we decided Cakalang was the best place for us based on the price, recently renovated bungalows and very friendly, welcoming staff. We were fortunate enough to be able to stay in the bungalow closest the the waters edge which made... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful and takes all your worries away. Food is all included and the meal together gives a nice chance to exchange experiences with other guests. Awesome scenery around the resort, nice trips to see dolphins, go snorkelling, diving. And this all for a low budget. Rooms without air conditioning or TV, but who needs... More

We travelled in a group of 6pers and stayed upstairs on the main building, in fresh, daily cleaned rooms. I can say that we enjoyed every detail: tasty food, home atmosphere, green jungle proximity, calm beach area, and staff´s attention. Diving with experienced and carefull guides was simply gorgeous, after that we could relax in common areas just feeling to... More

The place it's great!! And the service couldn't be better.. I really like that they care about their costumers and the first thing they ask you upon arrival it's that if you have any food request, intolerance etc..

We stayed in a bungalow for 4 nights, which was basic but very clean and spacious, although the bathrooms could do with a renovation. The lunch and dinners were delicious, plentiful and varied, but breakfast could have been improved. Staff were friendly and helpful. Wifi was intermittent but this is expected on an island with limited infrastructure. Overall the accommodation... More

Cakalang is a beautiful and clean dive resort for a reasonable price. The dive instructor and the dive guides are very experienced and competent who gave us a great time when learning to dive.

We stayed 8 days in Cakalang after reviewing each and every diving resort in Bunaken, as we wanted to complete the Advanced Open Water Diver course and we take diving seriously. Accommodation is quite basic but good, to me there is no doubt that it has the best quality-price ratio in Bunaken. We stayed in one of the cottages and... More
