I didn't stay at the resort (which seemed to be very nice), but just came there for 1 day diving (3 dives). Because there was some misunderstanding, we were late to leave diving 1.5 hour. But then the manager Andrea came, apologized me a few times for waiting this long and said that I would be diving for free! That... More

Easy booking, great infrastructure & facilities as part of hotel's vicinity. Skillful & friendly staff help my solo travel as if diving with my best buddies. One of the best dive site with pristine water and bio diversity. For sure will be back with my family.

Super happy and satisfied with everything. Andrea (Eco Divers manager) & Vincent (Mercure manager) greeted my family and I upon arrival and took great care of us during our stay. The hotel was clean and the renovated rooms were pretty to stay in with its "beachy" vibes. The lobby and lounge is nice to sit around, and the hotel employees... More

Eco divers have a couple of locations. We visited the Lembeh resort. This is a weird combination of a lovely town based resort with trips to Lembeh strait via minivan and boat with dives based off a daily liveaboard. It works! The diving is unbelievable and the guides very knowledgable

We spend a week at this resort diving after completing a week at the Eco Divers Lembeh Resort. They were two very different experiences both in accommodations and diving. The Minahasa Resort is lovely. The cottages are beautiful wood buildings. The bathrooms are a part of the cottage but have open air access so you can hear the waves of... More

We've just spent 3 weeks in Indonesia 2 with Eco Divers at Minahasa and Lembeh Strait. The diving was fabulous, warm water and many surprises. We found an Eel that the dive guide hadn't seen before and were surprised with a Dugong popping its head up for a look at us during a surface break. If you're looking for diving... More

I went diving for 3 days with Eco Divers while staying at Minahasa Lagoon resort in Manado, and I couldn't be happier. Sulawesi has beautiful dive sites, so you know beforehand it will be a good experience, but the quality of the dive company definitely makes all the difference. They are experient and knowleadgeable and really take care of their... More

I spent one week at Minahasa Lagoon resort, and, dove with Eco Divers for 5 days. The operation was excellent. Marcos the head diver, gave me a much needed check out in the resort pool; and, was really helpful and informative throughout the week. My high pressure hose "blew" on my 3rd dive, and, he immediately swapped out my faulty... More

We arrived at the Minahasa Lagoon after a week at Lembeh. The diving was run by the same company Eco divers. The diving was excellent. We liked Jerod by far the best, taking care to look after us in currents and showing us the creatures. The boat staff were all good but some much more attentive than others, Dolphi being... More

Everything about our time with Eco Divers Manado was great. It was quiet and uncrowded. The diving is excellent (easy, warm water, abundance of lovely things to see) and the dive team with both the guides and boat crew are spot on. We alternated between Bunaken island and the mainland, and saw a wide variety of life at both. They... More
