We really need to emphasise the "dive resort" part of the name here as Black Marlin is solidly focused on the dive part of their business.

If you don’t dive, don’t be surprised to have your reservation cancelled at the last moment -- as happened to one disappointed couple we spoke to who had planned their whole trip to Sulawesi around a stay there. Likewise, rooms can suddenly become unavailable to walk-in custom if you happen to mention you don’t dive; we were given a very cold shoulder when staff realised we were enquiring only about massage and not diving. That aside, the rooms here are solid value. They’re cleaner and better kept than those at Kadidiri Paradise. Rooms are simply fitted out, but quite bright, and many have a great water outlook. The beach, more or less shared with Lestari next door, isn’t as good as that at Paradise and gets more boat traffic. Overall, if you’re a diver, this is a solid option, but otherwise, don’t even consider it -- especially across high season. They rent kayaks on a half-day and full-day basis. Rates plus 10% tax.
