I chose this accommodation partly because of the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. While I don't really disagree with what's been written already, I'm adding this to provide a different point of view. The first thing to note is that Tongkaina, the village where the 4 Fish is, is VERY quiet. There doesn't seem to be much to do except wander... More

Our Dutch hosts, Jan & Ineke, were excellent. The facilities, a little spartan but complete, were highlighted by the location, the other guests, the food and attention from Jan & Ineke. We only stayed 3 days/2 nights as we were transiting after fabulous dives in Lembeh Straights & Raja Ampat but thoroughly enjoyed our short visit. Jan met us at... More

The 4 Fish is a hidden gem in a small and peacefull village just above Manado and located in the famous Bunaken area. The hotel is not on Bunaken island itself but only 10 minutes (on foot) away from the mangroveforest and sea. Snorkling and diving is possible and easy to arrange at the 4 Fish. They work together with... More

Fantastic place to stay. The service is excellent and the food is fabulous! The guesthouse is near Manado, but a little bit out of the way. No problem though, Jan and Ineke offer great opportunities for trips and there is a great opportunity to get in touch with the local people. Diving is a good option as well with the... More

We stayed there 10 nights. The Deutch host couple were great. They provided all information and arrangements to go around. They even arrànged the local-type excellent meals for my dietary request (VG, non-gluten). Wonderful ! We did several snorkeling to Bunaken (a 10-min boat drive from the very near-by grand Luley Hotel which has a big pro diving center. The... More

I love everything about this place :) The hotel is located in a remote village in the Manado (main island) part of the Bunaken National Park area (not the Bunaken Island). It took us around 45 minutes by taxi from the airport. We arrived in the afternoon of 28/07/14 and were greeted by the friendly staff. As soon as we... More
