Ive been blessed to have spent a week with the Murex Dive crew completing my PADI dive course. After completing the online component, Pim and the boat crew facilitated the water part of my course. All the staff were so good; friendly, accommodating and wonderful to meet. The room was comfortable, the food aplenty and fresh. Cant recommend it more... More

Had a relaxing holiday in this resort. A lot of fresh fruits with a helpful staff to show how you open a lot of them :) Everything was perfect. Boats, dives, food on the boat :) The spotters were really great, thanks for showing me lots and lots of new things...

This is a nice, low key scuba dive resort and a good refuge from the Manado, which I barely visited except for the Buddhist temple. You could easily get fat because there are nice lazy places to hang out, like at the seaside pool or under a palapa watching the gorgeous sunsets. They also have some food available all day... More

I had the time of my life getting my PADI certification and diving with Opo and Basrah -- excellent, low key and fun diving instructors. The diving pool is made specifically for dive instruction, and it was also fun just hanging out there and watching the ocean sunsets ... incredible. As for food, I love Asian dishes and am a... More

My wife and I spent three nights at Murex Dive Resort in Manado. This was a return visit to Manado and Bunaken dive sites for me, but a first time for my wife. On my previous trip, I stayed a much bigger hotel and dive resort only a kilometer further along the main road. For this trip I was looking... More

Thank you for your review and honest appraisal of Murex. We are currently in transition and have a lot of room to improve. We certainly take your criticism seriously. As soon as our transition plan is in place, we will communicate this to our dive community. Once our amended management is enacted you will see positive changes quite quickly. Thank... More

This would be a purely dive vacation and will be staying at the two Murex resorts - one on mainland Manado, the other on Bangka Island (which I will be writing a separate review). Arrived on a full flight from Singapore and was greeted by the Murex staff with a great big smile! Important to note, you need to inform... More

My 19 yr. old daughter and I stayed at Murex Manado for 6 nights in February, 2013. For 5 nights we were the only occupants, but the quiet was welcomed, and the staff were available when needed, but not intrusive. Our room was next to the large lovely fresh water pool. There is no sandy beach, but nice ocean swimming... More
