    Overall okay stay”
    Get AC room instead of fan room because the weather is very hot. Staff were very nice and attentive. Food is deliciously home style and varies day to day. Room is okay but have ants. Understandably because it's a hut in nature. Only get 2 towels per room which they didn't change during our 2 day stay. Bathroom is kinda dingy. No amenities in the toilet. Unlimited drinking water provided in the room. They provide free self-service coffee and tea (opens 24 hours) at the restaurant.

    Great staff, excellent diving but sub-par food”
    The staff is the best thing about this resort - attentive, warm, not overbearing. Rance the dive guide is great - shows 2-3 critters but otherwise leaves us alone to explore, while keeping an eye out. Food is too standard - Indonesian 'westernized' food that has lost authenticity.

    Good place to stay”
    Everything is fine at the resort because of the Eropean manager. (Thanx Max!) Clean, well organized, amazing kitchen. Friendly and polite staff. If you want to dive and stay with family - doesn't matter if they dive or not - that is the right place. The first dive guide a bit surprized - some times he disappeared and I couldn't even see him. But at the last two guides were just excellent. Generally, that is a good place.

    The staffs are very very very friendly. We felt that we are part of the Bastianos family rather than guests. I'm pretty sure that the food and room cleanliness are at the best condition this island could provide, but seriously, would LOVE to be there again. (Special thanks to Mike as our amazing OW trainer)

    Brilliant place for rest and relaxation”
    Bastiano's Resort was a perfect place to do as little as possible. I really needed a break from work and life and this was the most ideal spot for that. The food was excellent and plentiful, the staff was charming and attentive, the bartender friendly and generous, and that is just the resort. This is to say nothing of the spectacular location, the professionalism of the boat/dive crews, and the unrivaled beauty of the sea (both above and below the water) I can not rate this location higher. Thank you Bastiano's for the best rest I've had in years.

    Great resort, poor sleep”
    I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was great, the food was good and plentiful, and they even accommodated my wife's diet. The diving was first class, and we were supported well. My only complaint was the room. With a few modifications it could be great. The ventilation was poor, mainly due to curtains and netting that did not breath. Also, some vents at the back would provide good cross breeze. Second, the mattresses and pillows were very minimalist. Spending a bit more on each would provide a better sleep experience. All in all, I would recommend to everyone, with the caveat that they bring their own travel pillow, and maybe a camping mat!

    It's a Great Place”
    It's a great place for doing snorkling and diving. Beside that the room is very big for 4 persons and very clean. The food is pretty good for the remote place and all the staffs are friendly. It needs more upgrade for the wifi because the wifi can be used near the lobby and restaurant area. When I went there, it was raining season so don't be suprise if the beach lots of waste from the main island (Manado). But the hotel staffs always clean the beach every morning. For overall, it's very good to stay there.

    Simply amazing! We had the best time we could have in Bunaken. The resort is perfect with really good beach where to swim and snorkel. The dive Centre works perfectly and the dive masters are the best we could wish for. The staff is so friendly that we end up every evening singing with them under the moonlight in front of the bar. Rhomé and Max are the cherry at the top of the cake: they are so nice, friendly and helpful! We were feeling home after an hour we were there. Thank you! We hope to come back soon!

    Superb Location & Nice Comfort Room”
    What I loves the most about this resort is the fact that my room is directly on the beach, so I wake up with amazing view every morning during my stay, and just open the door to swim. The room it self has an exotic decoration, comfy, clean & neat. They also serve excellent food, breakfast, lunch and dinner already included with the room rate. Plus extra coffee break arround 4PM free of charge. Laying arround near the restaurant was also nice, they have nice coach with good view at second floor. Don't worry about can't go out during rain, they have billiard table, books, magazine & cable tv at restaurant area too, so stay inside was as much fun as go walk outside. Too bad they don't have any entertainment in the room, no TV & poor wifi connection. But other than that, everything else was great.

Room is simple but clean,and it's a very safe stay experience. Suggeting to go there in right season between APR to NOV, then u can avoid the floating trash in the sea from Manado and the full-say rain. It's really a impressive trip in bunaken ,I will come back for diving spot 26 :)

    Had a wonderful stay. Very Highly recommended.”
    I just came back from a three-day stay at Bastinos and would like to say it was a wonderful experience, beyond my expectations. It is located right on the beach that is one of the nearest to the city of Manado and thus access is good; staff are all very friendly and helpful; rooms are clean and well maintained; food is delicious and all inclusive of the price of stay; twice a day diving boat trip is offered at reasonable price with good guide staff (I am afraid I can not comment on the diving equipment since I do not dive). The only thing I would like improvement was wifi access which was not stable during my stay. Knowing it is not easy to have perfect internet environment in Indonesia, I still feel that it can be improve somewhat. I really would like to extend my appreciation to all the staff for the help which made my stay memorable.

    Had a great time away from urban life”
    Bastianos Resort @ Bunaken island offers a quiet & hassle free respite for hectic urban dwellers. Here time feels unimportant, uneeded and unwanted... Leisure and relax is the main job. The staffs did a fantastic job keeping every requests fully satisfied. Great area for snorkelling & diving is just 5-10min boat ride away. Private sandy beach at the resort ensure a romantic & quiet adventure away from throngs of tourists... The rooms have no TV or Wi-Fis. Every main activity are held at the well-maintained Longhouse that serves as the guest Lobby, Lounge, Restaurant & Activity Center. They seem to encourage guests to mingle and interact here. Just dont forget to pack ur amenities at the main Manado island before departing to bunaken... As they dont have minimarts selling any sunblock lotions, shampoos, ciggs or shavers... They do have a well-stocked bar & restaurant to serve u alcohols like beers & cocktails all day. U can pay by ATM or CC but expect a 3% surcharge. They only have BNI Debit machine fyi. Island Boat Taxi service is readily available at the pier for a variety of prices : Rp.500-700k (one-way trip).. Or up to 1mil+ if ur a bigger group or look like a foreign tourist types... This is by far the only drawback. As transport to-and-fro is not inclusive and are prone to negotiations; which always forced the tourists to "submit" to whatever the locals demand & suggest. Leaving no room for fair negotiations & fixed cost. Watch out & enjoy ur trip!

    The food is great and the staff were brilliant. It is on the only sand beach on the island but directly in front is the main pier where most boats arrive on the island - this a busy island - so not quite and swimming directly isn't really a good idea. The island is great and staff were very accommodating. It also has a good dive shop.

    Great hotel but ok dive center”
    Location view staff
    I wanted a hotel a bit upmarket for my girlfriend birthday during our backpacker trip. The hotel is nice, with a nice view, the room very clean with AC. The bathroom ok, with hot shower but of salted water. The 3 meals are a buffet with pretty diverse food. We did 3 dives in a day: 2 in a morning, with a rest on the boat, one in the afternoon after lunch at the hotel. In the first dive, my BCD was leaking so I couldn’t inflate it correctly while in the water. They fixed it in the boat. Just before the second dive, I noticed my regulator was leaking too making a small noise. They fixed it weirdly.  The thing that bothered me is that they didn’t change any of these equipments before the afternoon dive, even if we went back to the hotel. So the regulator leaking was still there. My girlfriend and myself are not experienced divers, and the dive master didn’t bother asking us how much air did we have left during our dives. So we had to tell him when one of us was reaching the red zone. I emailed the hotel few days in advance to organize a Dolphin Tour for her birthday. But they couldn’t gather enough people to do the trip the day before. I wish the dive organizer would have been a bit nicer about it, and tried harder, or maybe offered a better price than 180euros/boat for 2 people. I found a local in the village next door who was willing to do it for 60euros/boat. Much better deal. And we had an awesome time with the dolphins jumping around. Same if you want to go back to Manado by boat, the local will offer the service for 25euros/boat, the hotel will ask 30euros/person. The hotel’s staff is really really nice though, always smiling. They brought a delicious cake singing “Happy Birthday” the night of her birthday. And when we came back from the Dolphin Tour, just after the breakfast time, they made it possible to have some food still. This place is a little too pricey for the dive center quality, but you’ll have still a good and relaxing time there.

    Overall we really enjoyed our stay in the resort. The diving was great. Amazing spots and also the divemasters and equipment were excellent. The staff took the time in the evening to explain the under water life and always tried to allow for individual requests. The resort is nicely located directly on the beach, clean and spaciously laid out. Negativ:The food was ok, but nothing special. It was more or less the same everyday. In Indonesia we have eaten better for less money. Also the prices are a little bit too high for Indonesian cirucmstances.

    I stayed at Bastianos on Bunaken island with 2 friends and this was a fantastic ending of our 2 weeks trip through Indonesia. We arrived at Bunaken Island in the morning and the staff was very helpful and showed us around and explained us everything. The room was just great with sea view and very cloooooooosssseeee to the beach - like 2 steps. As it was not high season we were just a couple of guests in total, which was also very relaxing and fun atmosphere. The diving experience was great, as it was my first dive after getting my OPW license, I was a bit (very) nervous. But Bastianos had one dive guide just taking care of myself and that helped a lot! Thank you. The pickup worked very well and the ambiance is just great. Also we had to change the booking as we arrive late at night at Manado, no problem for Bastianos & Agoda - was very stafiyed. Nice little island, cool resort, friendly people. I'll come back someday soon.
