This hotel very bad ..... takes more than 4 hours to get the room. Manager on duty and all reception just say sorry and will do the best.
I think all the management are not professionals.
This is the worst of worst hotel manage by sheraton.

Very disappointed with all of the services.

The hotel was really old and smelly, the room was dark, smelly and we couldn't get the airco to work. The surroundings of the hotel and the hotel in itself were not what we expected. We checked in, looked around, went to a nearby restaurant and checked out. I can not honestly advise anyone to stay there for a holiday. Maybe just for transit. The room was clean.

Formosa Hotel, Manado, located directly in the edge of manado bay. Might you get your room with bay view surely you will enjoy the views. At the night you will see how the sea is giving you all romantic views. Then in the morning you can enjoy side walking on the long bay with all beautiful sea-views.

The hotel conditioned by the environment of business areas surrounding it. Never worries about how to buy your needs, since by walk you can find a supermarket at this business resort. And it is located near to the well-known manado public square named Boulevard within which you can find many coffee to sit in spending your all night time there. Enjoying much of manado traditional foods will really make sense there.

From the hotel you can also call a taxi to bring you to the manado port with all modern and traditional canoes which will bring you to a very well-know tourism resort named Bunaken. But remember to find people to join your trip to bunaken since the price rent of the boats would be expensive enough to pay alone. Cause you can not negotiate the price while you are having book the ticket. Then find out your group before you close the deal of the boat.

Actually the boat is ideally can bring about 10 to 12 people to bunaken, then you can share the price to pay.

Room Tip: Ask the hotelier to give you the room with the view of the sea

Before I escorted patient from Manado to Jakarta, we stayed at this hotel. I felt marvelous with it. Despite of its small capacity for customer to stay, I found that its location near shore and also had a good bedroom and good breakfast cuisine. If I will go again to Manado, definitely I will choose this hotel for my night stay.

Back to Manado again a bit later this year. Formosa fully booked so had to use another hotel. Not happy. Tiny room, rotten breakfast and only black coffee or tea. We left our phone number at Formosa and luckily after two days they phoned and told us they had a cancelation. We were there in 10mns. It felt like going home for us. Much nicer cleaner and bigger rooms and very good choice at breakfast and nice staff. There are plusher hotels in Manado but for the price you wont beat it. This may be our last stay here as next year our house should be built but we will still visit Formosa for a meal in the cosy restaurant and to say hello to the staff who made our stays so nice in the past.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a sea view. Manado tua looks beautiful rising from the sea and there is often a lovely sunset. Good class rooms are still very reasonably priced.
