(use Sven's dive school - his entire staff consist of locals who have an idea for the small stuff and know the dive...

I would agree with all of the positive reviews below and also underline that people who moan that this place doesn't have a pool, zen palace etc. only have themselves to blame for not doing their research. You can do 3 things here: 1) Dive/snorkel 2) Sit in your hammock and nap/read/stare out to sea 3) Eat/drink And let me...

Just returned from a fantastic vacation at Bunaken Island Resort. The accommodation has a local and nice interior, the view astonishing and clean. The staff is very friendly and accurate. Food always fresh and well prepared. Can't find anything to be less enthusiastic about. The diving crew is very professional and they spoil you. You don't have anything to do...

Let me start off by saying that all of the reviews below are absolutely right on. I have zero complaints with this resort. And let me be clear, it is a Dive Resort… Not a spa resort, beach resort, detox or yoga resort…a D-I-V-E Resort. If you are not a diver, please look elsewhere. If you are a diver, snorkeler...

The diving from this resort is fantastic. The staff are friendly and the gear is in great shape. Rooms are fine--but be aware, however, that electricity is not made available (by choice of the resort) between 9 am and 6 pm, meaning no fan, no air con. I am quite surprised none of the reviews mention this because it was...

The sunset behind Manado Tua, the dormant volcano, is just another reason to stay at Bunaken Island Dive Resort. After a day of diving or snorkeling, it's great to relax with new friends from all over the world with family-style dining. Villas are very comfortable and open to the breezes. Food is very generous and served by a helpful staff....

If you are planning on diving in Bunaken island, this is simply the best hotel in the island. The diving operation is excellent thanks to Swen, the owner of the dive shop. The dive masters have very good eyes to see and show you the creatures underwater and I must say it's amazing the diversity of animals you see in...

We planned to stay here for 4 days and ended up staying more than a week. This place is a real hideaway, very relaxed. The view from our outside balcony was stunning, with breathtaking ocean views and beautiful sunsets every evening. When it gets dark you'll see a billion stars and in the morning you'll wake up to the sounds...
