“definitely no luxury villas as advertised”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

don't let yourself fool you by their excellent website.
the accomodation is far away from anything that can be considered luxury.
there is a tiny beach that is full of dirt brought in by the tide and the management dumps it back into the sea on a daily basis.
food is very mediocre, warm water occasionally available, water in general and a/c shut off every few hours.
owner will try to overcharge on all means of transportation, walk 2 min into the village and you will get the same transport for 50%.

Staying with Tantamoon makes us feel at home, always provide private services as we can have whatever we wish for during our stays. Enjoying sunrise with local view activities on the sea just from our bed. Feeling the way local treats us in hospitality and warm during the day just from our sunbed. Wonderful time we had there are memorable and surely will return..

We were finishing our honeymoon and came to Siladen without any bookings on hands.
We have visited all 3 hotels/B&Bs on the island. Tanta Moon appeared to have the most modern rooms and the best price point.
This a family run Villas with only 4 employees and family running here is at its best and is what it must be - you receive all the advantages of living and feeling like at home.
Facilities - very modern shower and toilet, espeeecially for such remote place as Siladen.
Big and comfortable bed with mosquito net. Aircon, fridge. Big TV Set with rich assortment of satellite channels - when you're tired of snorkeling :) There is snorkeling guide there as well, by the way.
No dive shop in Tanta Moon but they easily outsource it with Bunaken dive shops.
And here comes the biggest advantage here for me - food! They offer staying on full board basis as there is no independent restaurants. Well, food is very various, cooking is awesome, (the owners cook themselves, ) the portions are really huge.
The last shot - they prepared for us on their own initiative and with no additional charges romantic dinner every evening! Niiiiice! Their neighbors Siladen Resort offers this but as expensive service!
Ok, there is small minus there - your bathroom could be visited by 1-2 cockroaches or a harmless spider during your stay, but come on, if you reached such faraway place as Siladen you've to be more than used to insects in good hotels, you must already learn their Latin names:)))
