The dive team were excellent in particular Arjen who was very calming, patient and efficient. The food was a little hit and miss with some dishes excellent and others poor. The first night in particular was v...

Food is served on long tables, where all guests sit together, including the owners (Dutch – Indonesian couple), to chat and discuss the dives of the day. There is a also pleasant spa on the...

Stayed here for a week. It is the best place on the island, we think. And I talked to a guy who had been on bunaken 5 times. It is a bit more expensive than the rest, but it is worth it. The bungalows are nice, as well as the pool area. The food is good, and they serve cake...

We had a great time staying at the village. The bungalow with veranda was nice. We had a beach view bungalow, but actually there is not really a beach. With high tide, the water is just 3/4 meters from your room. Although we are not divers, we really enjoyed the snorkeling. The reef in front of the resort is already...

I just got back from a weeks diving in Bunaken and had an amazing time. The resort is small so you get a chance to meet and talk with your fellow travelers. The owners are friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. I appreciated that they ate dinner with the guests which gave it more of a family feel. Resort...

It's a great place, and the Trip Advisor Traveler awards 2012 and 2013 are well deserved. Don't expect 5-star international comfort, but a very friendly and clean resort with 8 bungalows, each with their private verandas with hammocks! Rooms are fan cooled (aircon available at an extra charge).  We stayed for about a week with our 7-month old baby and...

Bunaken Island is 30 minutes from Manado. NO SANDY BEACH on the island as many hotels advertise. It's a wonderful place for snorkeling and diving but no other activities rather than those ones. Bunaken Village is a wonderful place for spending a few days alone with friends or family. The cottages are big.and clean. Food is very good and fresh....

This is a paradise for a diving family! Everything was very nice designed giving a cosy relaxing atmosphere. We stayed in a family bungalow, which was very nice. The whole resort had free wifi that worked very well, even inside your bungalow. The food was delicious, well cooked and plenty. There were always two choices of courses. Everybody working at...
