A great place to stay
Friendly owner and staff, amazing food, beautiful coral
This resort is on the 'clean' side of Bunaken island. The beach is a narrow strip but you can go snorkelling just off shore in the early evening which is lovely. The owner organises great diving and snorkelling trips and can even get you a glass-bottom boat if you want! The rooms are kept clean (not a bug in sight)and have good mosquito nets and fans. The hammocks and chairs on the cabin decks mean you can chill out easily. The sea-view cabins are the best for this. Some cabins at the back have a restricted view. The set meals are delicious and and the menu changes daily. There was a real mix of people staying here - divers and non-divers and the owner and staff treated all with the same respect, which was really nice to see. We stayed 4 nights at this place and had an absolutely amazing time, so we strongly recommend it.

Sea breeze indeed
Sea views, qualified diving instructors and wonderful atmosphere
Stayed in one of the sea facing bungalows. Cleanliness and comfort is up to standard for a fairly isolated location like this one: hot water, electricity constant enough, wifi in restaurant, comfortable bed... one thing that stands out is how close this resort is to the sea. The restaurant where the 3 buffet meals are served is literally sitting on beach rocks. Definitely recommended whether you want to chill or dive (the aussie owner and instructor is very skilled)

Divers be warned, if you do not have your own dive
The hotel food and staff were fine but the diving is dangerous. Dive guide took my 13 year old to 31 m max supposed to be 21m. Ran out of air on one dive. Guide swims off never looks back. CYA.
Be warned that you need a dive computer and your own plan. Don't depend on the guide foe anything. Not a good place for beginners.

Sea breeze whole day whole night long
Sea breeze, sounds of the sea at night, and very homely feeling
I could listen to the tides in the quiet of the night. So breezy that I left door open at night too. Just the joy of hanging around in the balcony the whole day is worth the price of the room. The hospitality is great - a very family feel. Terry the dive director is a swell guy and helps out with everything. The house reef and low-tide shore life is fantastic - can see even moray eels even at ankle-deep water. I enjoyed my stay very much.

Need more attention
Quiet place, friendly dive instructor
Had an amazing holidays, see new things in the ocean. Nice place, unfortunately the funitures are old specially in the room. Not really worth for the money we have spent. The resort need a little renovation but over all, really had an awesome breaks.

Excellent value for money place for divers
location,cost, diving facilities
Terry & Diana are very nice hosts and they run a professional outfit. Personally - I felt the need for air conditioning but many do not. Breakfast was a bit frugal but lunch and dinner was good Indonesian food.Dive trips and snorkelling trips very reasonably priced and well managed.

Fully recommended
Dedicated staff / good food / great location
The hotel offers a very basic accommodation (no air-conditioning and only cold water), but extremely clean and well maintained. The manager(Terry) and his team are extremely hands on and make all guests feel welcome and appreciated. The food is very tasty and there is a variety of choice. The hotel has got an access to all fantastic snorkeling / diving sites. There is a very friendly atmosphere which contributes to a proper rest. Not to be recommended to guests who look for a nice beach. There is not much to offer in this respect on this side of the island.

Relaxing and peaceful with good homemade food.
Very friendly people, very good home made cooking and colourful beach during the day.
Excellent. The beautiful traditional clean cottage, friendly people and excellent food are the top of the list. Although our health were not good at that time, the owner, Terry and Diana were very accommodating. Twice a day there were electrical switch, so there were blackouts for a few minutes; but this made our experience there more precious. One of the reasons we chose Bunaken was to be faraway from the busy city life and to see different kind of life (underwater life). They have excellent diving equipment and instructors (and friendly, too). We recommend Bunaken Divers Sea Breeze Resort and will go there again.

overpriced, good staff, good food
ocean view and food
We actually had a good time, but felt like it was a little overpriced compared to other hotels and home stays in the area. the food was very good and the staff were excellent but the room was dark and had lots of insects/cockroaches etc.
