The room: We stayed for only one night before we went to Malenge Island. The room was clean, air condition worked well (which was great, as the city was quite humid and hot), and surprisingly there were no mozzies. Western style bathroom, but no shower screen. The beach: Beach is clean and right in front of your door step. This is not a white sandy beach, but rather a black pebbled beach. If you like having foot massages, walking barefoot is really therapeutic. Water is clear with interesting underwater view, lots of small fishes and corals. The food: Breakfast is included. As the saying goes, when in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in Ampana, eat like the locals do. Which means, rice and fish for breakfast. No complain here, fish were really fresh. I am unsure if lunch and dinner is also included, as we have some relatives came and brought us seafood from the market and asked the hotel to cook it for us. They were delicious! Must try: their local coffee, served at breakfast, freshly ground and brewed, made to order, one of the best my husband has ever had. The service: Staffs were really attentive, they carried our bags to our rooms, informed us when our meal is ready, and attended to our every requests. Good in room wifi reception, not lightning speed, but still decent. They can also arrange your trip to Togean island. Marina Cottages also owns Sandy Beach Resort in Malenge. The verdict: I would definitely recommend people to stay here, and next time we will definitely stay longer in Ampana. How to book: It is best to call ahead to book. Leaving messages in tripadvisor barely gets any reply.

We arrived by boat from Togean Islands (Poya Lisa Island) and planned to continue travelling on towards Poso (we were on bicycles, travelling North and Central Sulawesi) but decided to stay the night at Marina Cottages and it was the best decision! Beautiful beach, lovely cottage, great food, and extremely helpful Edy - who speaks excellent english and was able to give us lots of information regarding our onward destinations (so important when travelling by bicycle). He (and his staff) even fixed my friends phone which wasnt working! I HIGHLY recommend Marina Cottages to any traveller passing through or staying in Ampana!!

Went there in a group of 8 adults. Stayed for 1 night, before we went to Togian Islands. Rooms are decent, clean, and air conditioned (there are options for fan also). Food are fresh and Sulawesi style. The best part is, that you can do snorkeling right in the coral beach in front of your rooms. Waters are perfectly clear and minimum waves. A few meters from shore side you will find coral reefs. A perfect stay we had in Marina Cottage.

the perfect hotel if you want to watch the beautiful sunset in Ampana city. The room is in front of quite sea, you can swim or even just laying on sea side. Don't forget to bring snack or food to your room, because the location is little far away from restaurant.

Stayed one night in Deluxe on way to Togean Islands and one night in Standard room after our viist to Togean Islands. Standard room seemed much better - less smell of smoke than our Deluxe room. Breakfast buffet was decent - good enough. The rooms are bungalows with electricity. Good for one night… probably don’t need to spend more than one night.

Located In Ampana. Free WiFi and Very Condortable Room. Fantastic Viem of the Beach. Easy access to Harbour to Togean Island. Very Good Service of the Staff. Better Book this Place Before there Because the travellers know Well. So Don't Miss it. Recomended.

There are different kind of bungalows, we had a superior which was nice! Nice sunset view, breakfast was ok, mostly local food! They have also a really good tourguide who could give you good advises for the boats to togeans and so on! Booking process was a bitt difficult! The homepage was not working, so we booked via facebook! On our booking request via email we got no answer, but at the end it worked via facebook! The hotel could definitly improve the communication with their guest during booking process, its really hard to communicate with them because often you get no response! All in all a good hotel for one night before togeans, but the communication during booking requests should be improved by the hotel!

Unplanned stopover.simple rooms but with aircon. Bathroom without extravaganza like a mirror. Pleasant staff, some not adequate. Beach and sea not inviting. Restaurant very basic but beer available. Breakfast better

When it comes about a wooden cottages, all i perceived in mind is somewhat a bit dirty and old. But not Marina Cottages. It is modern and clean, and not a single cockroaches or house lizard in sight. To be honest, beyond my expectations : compare to other cottages in Togian, it is comfortable, clean, good food, cool air conditioner (finally, an ac!). The beach view is so-so, but the sunset is pretty. Overall, a nice and fulfilling rest after trip from togian. Best place to rest for a transit, not far from airport.

Dirty room the bed sheets were used, the toilet was not cleaned but as we complained the staff was ready to problem. They were ok. But this place is clearly an outlier in Sulawesi where you can always find nice value and decent places all around the islands.
