Friendly dive resort in beautiful surrounds
Ecofriendly dive resort. Great location for diving and snorkelling (but not for walking around to explore North Sulawesi - needed to drive other places). 20min boat ride to the "house reef" wall around Bunaken. For an inexperienced diver, the guides were patient and helpful, and took great photos of turtles & marine life for me. The cook was very obliging, although took a while for them to understand "gluten free" for my friends who were travelling with me. The Dutch owner, Simone, was lovely and interested in her guests. She employed local staff which her vocational school had trained in hospitality and guiding. Lighting in rooms and lounge area were a little dark - cosy atmosphere, but not great for reading.
