        This is a tough review. For what you get, Mantanani Island is perhaps not a great value in SE Asia. We paid $60 per person per night for a 3 night stay (most people stay for 1 night). We snorkeled, didn't dive (it is not...More

        Hi , We have option of staying at bembaran whcih seem to have bit of comforts with a/c etc....!!! OR Mari Mari backpackers in a sulap hut with private bathroom but no school or much else !!!. They are on different beaches and WA swim seeing what people's thoughts are regarding the 2. Seems will get 3 nights full board at bembaran for bit cheaper than 4 nights b/b at Mari. Have bm been to loads of islands around Asia so aware of beach hut standards to expect - just looking for chill out beach and snorkelling with lovely beach island scenery..... Would be great to hear anyone's thoughts. Thanks. Nick
