Tasik Ria was a great place to spend our first week in Sulawesi. The hotel manager, Dan was more than accommodating. If we needed something done we would just mention it to him and it would happen. On our first day we mentioned that our group liked sushi and Dan made sure that every night during cocktails we would have fresh sashimi and sushi. He also arranged a family style Indonesian meal for us one night at the jetty bar and got up early one morning to take us to a local market for some great picture ops.
We were fortunate that the week was fairly calm so that the 1 hour boat ride to Bunaken was enjoyable. The dive crew were extremely helpful with gear and were always on the lookout for the critters we were looking for. The boat we were on was fine although could have been quite wet if the weather had not cooperated. Some sort of seating on the top deck rather than just mats thrown down would have been nice.
Although the pool view rooms are somewhat dated and the bathrooms can certainly use an upgrade, they were clean and in good working order. The pool and spa areas are some of the nicest I've seen.
