Daruba is a small and very pleasant town with numerous accomodation options in the 150,000-400,000 price range(june 2013).
D'Aloha Resort on the Dahegila peninsula offers accomodation from 600,000-800,000 rupiah (june 2013). Daruba has a wider range of food available than this resort. Loud music is sometimes played in the resort's restaurant.
Very good Bahasa Indonesia is widely spoken. There are English language speakers, but they are a very small minority.
Catch an overnight boat from Ternate to Daruba: Geovani on Wednesdays and Fridays. These boats return to Ternate the following night and each has a limited number of cabins with fan cooling or air conditioning. There are also many cheaper sleeping spaces available on lower decks.
Sometimes small planes fly from Ternate to Morotai. These services can be cancelled due to bad weather or poor ticket sales.
Alternatively there are small boats (called spid, pronounced speed) from Ternate to Sofifi, "taxi" from Sofifi to Tobelo and then spid or ferry from Tobelo to Daruba the main town of Morotai.
Bentols (motorbikes pushing a rickshaw like cabin) can seat two not overly large people and can travel wherever there is a bitumen road. These guys drive very slowly by most standards and get angry at other road users who drive at speeds which they consider unsafe: maybe the laid back tropical island speeds are something the world should imitate.
