Small and cosy dive resort with only six spacious wooden bungalows on a hillside. Great sea views from your private balcony. Breezy seaside restaurant, with great food and cold drinks. Dive center on the premises with good diving at competitive prices. The owner, Jerry, was born and raised on the island and together with his Dutch wife he welcomes you to come and dive Bunaken.

We stayed at Happy Gecko in September 2018 and had an amazing time. The diving is superb and Jimmy ,the dive master was great. Snorkeling from the house reef is incredible, as is the diving on the many sites nearby. The bungalows are quiet, comfortable and have wonderful views.

We stayed here for one week primarily for the diving and snorkelling. The reef and the biodiversity are astounding. The bungalows are basic but lovely and clean with a colonial style. I would highly recommend this resort if you want a week chilling and seeing a bookful of

Lovely location, and even more kind staff (specially dive shop crew) Diving there was fun and relaxing. Snorkeling is also great thanks to crystalline waters. Very recommendable to anyone, but if you are not into snorkeling or diving, you might be bored on the 2nd day

"Unfortunately, the rooms are not good."
"The higher up - the more stairs - the better view you get from your bungalow."
"bungalow 1 easiest to get to (all bungalows uphill) and most private as further from public path than the others."
"The cabin nearest to the main dining area was perfect"
"All of the cabins have views and are comfortably furnished. You can't go wrong!"
