A great place to stay”
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.
Excellent value for money place for divers ”
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 ”
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.
Nice hotel with almost excellent service”
Nice resort but cottages need to renew. I understood that some kind of renewing project is going but not all in one time. Very good staff who gave good service. Food was mostly good but breakfast maybe needs more imagination. Nice restaurant also. The worst thing was maybe the internet connection which didn't work very well but the connection was for hours away every day. Cottage with sea view was very nice but the bathroom/toilet not the best construction because the shower was not separately and the floor was always wet. However we used this and it didn't disturb so much after one day. The location of the resort very good and we could snorkel from the beach. Very nice coral reef to snorkel. This time we didn't need mosquito nets in nighttime. Maybe more mosquitos in other garden cottages. Resort was worth of the price!
Basic hotel, great diving”
Pros: diving was great, dive guide John and all staff were really good and friendly, equipment was in good condition and the resort has 2 boats so it shouldn't be too overcrowded and allows for visiting different dive/snorkeling sites, unlimited free water/coffee/tea, there's also a great snorkeling reef just outside the resort, overall we enjoyed our stay Not so good: some bathroom fittings look beyond old and could really do with replacing, shower and tap are saltwater only but there's a fresh water bucket - it's fine but think this should be advertised to manage expectations, for hot water you have to pay extra, food was okay but high reliance on carbs, not much fruit, and as vegetarian there was very limited choice, overall it was more basic than we expected for the money, internet very patchy due to poor local network (so don't expect much streaming time but booking stuff should be ok)
Wonderful 2 weeks”
We enjoyed our stay with Diane and Terry and their staff. We dove and snorkeled the house reef, alternating every day. Dive guide Dempsey was wonderful to dive with. He found amazing things like a rare yellow pygmy seahorse, ornate ghost pipefish, robust pipefish and endless nudibranch. I have always liked the Luikan 2 dive but Mike's corner is a wonderful site and new to me. Also enjoyed Siladan dives. Food was really good and plentiful with many vegetarian options. I enjoyed the diverse people we met, young and older. Our cottage was a garden view, but we also had a sea view from the deck. GB3! Wifi in the dining area worked well, but best when fewer people online. We had a fan and mosquito net. We were very comfortable at night. The island had daily power outages, but not really a big problem. The resort is just outside of the main village and easy walk to town. I did appreciate that the filter used for tank fills is changed frequently, as I did not experience any respiratory issues like I usually do when diving with rental equipment. Thanks for a good time and cold beer!
Good Folks - Nice Stay”
We had a few days to spare on a trip to watch our student compete - and almost win :-) the English Jr High School National Storytelling Competition. So we stayed at Bunaken Divers Sea Breeze. A very satisfying experience with friendly/helpful staff and a good experience for novice snorkelers like ourselves.
Super nice staff, very helpful, and awesome diving! We had a great time!”
The bungalows are clean and have everything you need, showers are saltwater but you can ask for freshwater as well. Snorkeling in front of the resort was great, and diving was absulutely amazing! Such a great biodiversity and very clean water.
Quiet place to rest after a great dive”
I stayed in the beach front bungalow 1 for 6 nights. I was glad to see that I got my own terrace with a hammock just like it was advertised in the picture. The bungalow was in good condition and it has a big window so it's always bright inside. The staff cleans it upon request and also hands out clean towels without having to ask. Sleeping there after diving during the day was very easy thing to do since the room is equipped with s mosquito net and the neighborhood is very quiet. In fact you can hear the waves while lying in bed. Indonesian breakfast, lunch and dinner was served plentiful in a buffet style and I never left the place hungrily. The only cons I noticed during my stay were that electricity, water and Internet suplly broke down once in while. However, it's a small island and I think most other resorts are struggling with the lacking public infrastructure, too. During my stay the owner Terry wasnt there but I was welcomed by Myka who has a very good feeling what western travellers are looking for and he did a great job making my stay at sea breeze very enjoyable.
It's located on an island, so don't except luxury fanciful stay. People are nice, food was limited choice. It can get boring if stay for many days as nothing much to do around the island unless you rent a boat. Stay was comfortable, no hot water and water not very fresh, but as expected from an island. Internet only available at the restaurant, pretty decent and fast, but sometimes electricity may be off for conservation. It's a great place to meet other travellers.
Bunaken nice place for diver”
That time i stay the resort have a shortage of water on the 2nd day. The resort too expensive charge on the water transport and the facilities ie. diving and snorkelling. The resort charge using Euro currency rate. Hope the resort, if they want to charge the Euro.. please make sure its realible to customet.. Anyway thank you for the hospitality to us..
Sea breeze indeed”
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)
Sea breeze whole day whole night long”
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.
Relaxing and peaceful with good homemade food. ”
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.
the place is isolated and very little to do around here other than diving. we took "introductory" diving course, but there was no proper "introduction"--the staff who spoke very little english put us in the boat with the rest of the guests and literally threw us into the ocean and tried to teach how to clean the mask in the ocean when there was a strong current at the bottom of the ocean (it was raining hard on the surface). definately not worth the money. the place has no wifi (the staff kept saying, there is no wifi today, may be tomorrow...) and they do not provide any toilettries so you have to bring soap and shampoo and everythig by yourself. there were so many ants and bugs in the bungalow and gotten bitten a lot by some kind of insects so you have to put on a lot of bug spray. also, we had an emergency so we needed to leave the lodge one day early, but there was no attempt to make any accomodation for an earlier departure. instead, the owner said he will try to give me the best price next time i book the hotel--i don't think there will be a next time.
Sea Breeze is bliss”
The staff were very hard working and the location ideal (bar and rooms). Best snorkeling on the island was right off the beach/reefrim. Not much to do on the island apart from amazing diving, book reading in hammocks and drinking in the evenings with interetsing European travellers. We had the most relaxing holiday of our lives here!
Great time and great people”
I arrived with no diving experience and planned to complete my basic open water. I was lucky enough to have 1 on 1 instruction with Terry and I had a great time. The rest of the staff were also very helpful and attentive. Overall, it was a very nice place with a friendly atmosphere.
Good hotel but overpriced standard rooms.”
We stayed at the standard bungalow in one of the 5 rooms. It is a bamboo made building(which needs some work to be done) so you can hear and smell your neighbors. Room was clean with a cold shower,bed with a blanket. Mosquito net is in a cone shape and very low so it got puled over during a night sleep and mosquitoes were having a feast. Meals were good with some varieties but we experienced shortage especially after coming back from dives. At the arrival we were given an envelop so we could put a tip for the staff at the end of our stay. In my opinion it is ridiculous but staff was good and helpful.Dives were good but with a luck of a good predive briefing and personal touch. Overall it is a good place to say
Not what we expected ”
The prices are way too expensive for the quality of the room... the room is falling apart , we could hear the neighbors like if they were next to us , ànd this was not a bungalow. Did not like the atmosphere, it would be better clearly to stay in a homestay that is half the price we paid . We asked for upgrade in a bungalow that was in front of the sea but clearly not worth the price. Just stay with the locals you will be better. The food was good though
really nice staffs”
Actually Good! Only the island problems -mosquitoes and humidity
