Had a great time staying at the hotel. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable with day bed on the porch which had a beautiful view of the ocean and the infinity pool. Staff was super friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Did a lot of diving with their on-site dive center; BEST macro dives... More

I booked 1 room with my friends, but ended up staying up somewhere else over night. Just because they won't accept 4 ppl in 1 room even with extra charges. They would only allow a max of 3 ppl; 2ppl included in the rates and 1 person will be borne an extra charge even the room is so massive. Some... More

Enjoyed fabulous critter dives with experienced and safety conscience guides & staff (we brought all our own gear). BUT, everything else seemed there was no other administration/management even though we were introduced to the two key "managers". The staff were very friendly & attempted to be accommodating but overall were totally adrift. We stayed 3d/2n, villa was cleaned but empty... More

We planned to stay for 3 days, ended up staying for a night. This place is not for divers. The dive center is understaffed. The resort is in need of a major renovation. The villas are disaster zone about to fall apart. On the outside, this resort looks descent but upon closer inspection there is so many potential hazards and... More

I've been living in Manado for four years and found out about this resort only last week. We stayed 2d1n for the pool so can't say anything about diving here. The room is surprisingly comfy for four, no extra bed needed. AC's working fine. We had the twin villa, it has connecting door to the adjacent room which was vacant.... More

Dabirahe is a nice, peaceful resort overlooking the Lembeh Strait. We stayed there for four nights in December. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, especially since the resort is pretty isolated from outside restaurants and entertainment. We ate at the hotel for almost every meal, which was fine since the food was decent. The drive from Manado to Lembeh... More

As the name implies, this resort is situated over the hill overlooking the lembeh strait with spectacular view and close to nature. The staff took great efforts to make our dive vacation a lovely and memorable one. An excellent place to bring along children and elderly that caters to their activities.
