Really loved our time here. We had five nights. Probably my favorite place in Indonesia. The only down side was the travel to get here! Just took so long but it was worth the trip. We went searching for Sea Manates (sea cow?) the water and snorkeling here is world class. My husband dives so he enjoyed that but I...

We stayed here for a five-day dive holiday and really enjoyed the cozy surroundings, the delicious food they served and the beautiful dives. The bungalows are simple but nice, and we can definitely recommend the massages. Overall we had a beautiful stay here and would recommend the place for divers.

Great value for money, staff very friendly, boating crew well experienced and accommodating especially towards the kids. Food was excellent, communal dining was fun. Snorkelling was outstanding and many locations are available. Floating plastic was a little off putting in one or two locations, but Village Bunaken itself is impeccably clean and does not contribute to the problem. There were...

Small and exclusive accommodation with only a few huts. Friendly staff. Snorkel from the house reef was a memorable experience. Lots of beautiful coral and fish life. Scuba wall diving and mandarin fish trip also unforgettable.

Summary: Great place with excellent service and good food. Not overly luxurious per se, but an excellent place to relax in between dives. Would recommend. Accommodation: The rooms are fairly basic, but clean and well-maintained. My room was cleaned well every day by the staff and there some nice small touches such as a pitcher of ice water waiting in...

Beautiful setting, excellent service, warm and welcoming owners, comfortable and clean rooms, hot water, exceptional food and moments away from an incredible reef - what more could you want. We stayed during new year and our anniversary and the owners wife, Angelina, went above and beyond to make it special for us. Highly recommended

My son & I spent a fantastic couple of days on this beautiful tropical island recently and I can only praise the hospitality of the management and staff of The Village. The cottage we stayed in was first class with fans an A/C. Food was delicious and plentiful. My son being a vegan was catered for with no hassle whatsoever....

I think it's a true The Bunaken Village is the best hotel on the island but it happens becouse they don't have many opponents (this class). Resort is very nice, rooms are big and clean. The staff is friendly and they organise the best beach party! They are really good musicians! I miss them. Food is tasty but nothing special....

The owners Jochem and Angelina run an amazing business with Deni and Thea as the beautiful hosts and managers..They are so obliging and helpful and the rest of the staff are absolutely beautiful. It is very obvious that morale is high and everyone works...

Where do I start??? Stayed there for a total of nine nights with two families. The staff are the happiest and most friendly I've ever encountered. This is a reflection of great management. The food is absolutely delicious (every meal). We completed 10 dives with Egen as our guide. The equipment is good. Boats excellent for diving (only takes a...
