I spent a week on my own at Mapia resort. The staff were very attentive and friendly, from the pickup at the airport, the team on the dive boats and the team on shore. The food was incredible, fresh and plentiful and beautifully served. The spa treatments were amazing and the resort was well appointed in tropical gardens. A very... More

Before my visit I was a little bit unsure about the place especially the services and environment. But after arrival I was surprised how clean the Rooms are. And it was big and nice. My daughter loves it and ask me if we could stay longer time here. Excellent atmosphere, familiar environment nice staffs. Definitely recommend for everybody.

If you are looking for muck and makro you are in the right place if you come to Mapia Resort. The guides find the strangest and rarest nudibranchs, crabs, shrimps, lobsters .... everything! Also everybody is very friendly and professional. Food is a nice mix of indonesian-italian-international and tasty with a good variety every day. Garden and pool are lovely,... More

To begin with, the hotel is far from Perfect (see the preceding TA review). I think the comments on TA are better than what the actual property is. I was a little underwhelmed when I arrived and even more underwhelmed when I saw my room which was too basic for the price we paid. The property is not very well... More

I spent almost two weeks at the Mapia Resort, which has recently changed management. A change for the better! The hotel sits in a lush garden with a nice swimming pool directly on the ocean, about 20 minutes outside of Manado. The cabins that are built in the local style are spacious and clean, they have hot water, a/c and... More

This review is divided into 3 parts. : 1) The Resort 2) Diving and 3) Traveling around on public transport to and from the resort into Manado city. Part 1) RESORT: What distinguished the... More

Mapia and it's sister resort Onong @ Siladen offers free Nitrox and excellent service for diving. The dive guide has superb spotting skills and probably has the personal phone number of all the pygmy sea-horse in Manado/Bunaken. The staffs there are friendly, extremely accommodating and are keen to make your stay as enjoyable as they can. The hotel has working... More

Kleines feines Ressort mit coolem Hausriff. Vor allem die Möglichkeit auch auf Siladen zu Übernachten macht es noch attraktiver. Die Anlage auf Siladen ist "Inselfeeling" pur! Super nette Betreuung da und gute Bewirtung,vor allem der Barbequeabend mit den einheimischen Musikanten ist ein Traum. Muss man gesehen haben!
