I arrived alone and was joined by a friend after a few days. I had two different rooms (before and after four nights in other places). Both were quiet, super clean, and opened onto a sturdy, breezy deck. There are also rooms at the lower pool level, which my friend enjoyed. One ofmy rooms had an A/C unit that could... More

We had a very nice stay at the 4 fish. The guesthouse is very beautiful with a big wooden terrace which is the gathering point of the place, and it really brings something to the great atmosphere. The joined 3 course dinner every night is really nice, and it gives you a very homey feeling. It also gives you the... More

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

As another. Reviewer said - it is a true hidden gem! Our initial plan was for 5 nights but we stayed 10! The atmosphere is relaxed and the food awesome!

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
