          First of all, Mantanani is an island. There's no electricity during the day. The island is mainly inhibited with aborigines - the sea Bajau. One part of the island is slowly turned into homesteads (supported by the Ministry of Tourism), another part is the "fancy"...More

          白天沒有供電,浮潛完不能洗熱水澡。潛水沒什麼可以看的,有些點浮潛很棒。他們說一天有三次機會浮潛,但不是真的。他們沒有足夠的船帶我們去浮潛或潛水。 他們的船很老舊,全身上下都濕透。別人一日遊的船不會弄濕,也可以開得比較快。 網站上說有三人房,實際上我得到的是加床在很小的兩人房。卻每人每晚收370(未稅)馬幣,一晚1100MRY,非常誇張的價錢。 房間早上10必須退房,但要等到下午三點才有船送我們回去。很愚蠢的安排。 They don't provide electricity at day time. That's mean we didn't have hot water to shower after snorkeling or diving.And won't have fan at day time. They said everyday have three times go to snorkeling but it's not true. They don't...More

          Was nice once, but has gone shabby. Very basic, bordering on grubby. All worn out. Decent beach, good sunset, reasonable snorkelling but nothing great. Not worth paying for a dive. Walked down the beach to the "Chinese" resort. Grim.
