I don't understand why there are so many good reviews about Four Fish Hotel. – Rooms are small and dark: you need to switch on the lights even during the day. They are also hot (no good ventilation). – The bathroom is really small, like a closet with a curtain to separate the toilet from the shower. – No hot water... More

We stayed two nights and 3 days in this resort at the end of our 3 weeks sulawesi journey and we loved every thing about it. Jan and Ineke are wonderful hosts, very helpful and very informative. The rooms are very clean and so is the pool. The terrace (and the view) are fantastic. Even though other travellers were staying... More

After we travelled nearly 1 month in Sulawesi, we stayed here to avoid hustle and bustle of Manado city. It's a charming guesthouse with friendly people. We could relax on the wood deck overlooking the beautiful greenery. One day we rented a motorbike from them and rode to a water fall. It was a nice trip, seeing little villages and... More

I arrived alone and was joined by a friend after a few days. I had two different rooms (before and after four nights in other places). Both were quiet, super clean, and opened onto a sturdy, breezy deck. There are also rooms at the lower pool level, which my friend enjoyed. One ofmy rooms had an A/C unit that could... More

We had a very nice stay at the 4 fish. The guesthouse is very beautiful with a big wooden terrace which is the gathering point of the place, and it really brings something to the great atmosphere. The joined 3 course dinner every night is really nice, and it gives you a very homey feeling. It also gives you the... More

I chose this accommodation partly because of the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. While I don't really disagree with what's been written already, I'm adding this to provide a different point of view. The first thing to note is that Tongkaina, the village where the 4 Fish is, is VERY quiet. There doesn't seem to be much to do except wander... More

Our Dutch hosts, Jan & Ineke, were excellent. The facilities, a little spartan but complete, were highlighted by the location, the other guests, the food and attention from Jan & Ineke.

The 4 Fish is a hidden gem in a small and peacefull village just above Manado and located in the famous Bunaken area. The hotel is not on Bunaken island itself but only 10 minutes (on foot) away from the mangroveforest and sea. Snorkling and diving is possible and easy to arrange at the 4 Fish.
