I came here with my friends for work in Manado, the resort was very quiet as the location took far away from Manado, so It felt like I was going to a remote area and this resort was under renovation. But, the scenery was beautiful when I came along to the wood bridge connecting to Bunaken island panorama. Menu for... More

Location of the hotel is amazing. One of the best view you can buy with money ! The walk to the dock area through the mangrove trees is really refreshing. The rooms are ok. Room service is hard to get. But the food is well prepared & tasty. Would love to go back again for the relaxing holiday.

It's quite far from the city, we chose it because it's the closest point from Manado to Bunaken island. The first thing that caught my eyes from the lobby was the remarkable view of the hotel's garden, dock and right to the sea, it's just simply beautiful. The room is just ok, quite clean and everything just standard. But the... More

This hotel has changed management and is now called a bit too pompously the Grand Luley Resort and Dive Center. I stayed there last October (nights of October 23-24], on my way to many more days on Bunaken and Banggka islands. Hotel has been renovated and is now clean and better looking than some old reviews describe. All was well,... More

Eacaped for a long weekend and booked the Santika at the last minute. We chose based on the pictures and positive reviews. The hotel doesn't match either the nice photos of clean linens, luxurious bed runners and crisp design. Instead rooms are old and badly in need of renovation. Service is poor with the notable exception of the barman. You... More

We booked two cottages and we got them right next to each other. There were two (double-sized) beds and a sofa in each room, the rooms were big and spacious and the bathroom was clean. Had a walk down the pier and snapped few beautiful pictures of the sunset. The only bad things are the pool wasnt clean, people swam... More

The hotel is set in a beautiful park-like setting which makes a lovely impression and the grounds are huge (you can walk towards the waterfront). Yes, the rooms could do with some renewal, but they are ok, biggish. The service is fine, and it has two restaurants (try the one near the water). The pools are large and the grounds... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks (end of april, half of may 2012). The hotel is mostly quiet, relaxed and very pleasant. They do except large conventions and wedding parties. Those days are a bit noicy, but overall this is only a minor inconveniance. Some reviewers mention the paint-jobs and maintenance levels. This is a seaside hotel, in a rural... More

This was once a grand resort. It's aging badly. The paint jobs are sloppy, the wood on the mirror is flaking, and the grout in the shower is coming lose. The room was reasonably clean, but not spotless by any means. The air conditioning worked well. We left the air on for the white noise. There are 4 rooms per... More
