We stayed in one of the deluxe bungalows, which is a bit bigger than the standard. Mhei (sorry if the spelling is wrong) kindly offered this to us at a discounted price. Mhei was kind and helpful throughout our stay, and provided great communications before we arrived. She even happened to be in Manado with her husband Franz the day...

The location is great, with a beautiful reef (with turtles!) very close by for snorkelling. The food was constantly very tasty and abundant when we were there. Room was pretty nice, but could do with some netting to prevent large insects from coming in. Bathroom didn't really work very well until our last day, when the problems were finally fixed....

Absolutely recommendable for all ocean lovers. Sonya Harry May and the rest of the crew are very nice people and make your stay as pleasant as possible. Great to relax enjoy the ocean and nice food. Thank you very much.

We spent 6 nights at Bunaken Sea Garden in early August and had an amazingly wonderful time here. The location of the resort itself was strategic. Right at its door step is the superb Bunaken Timur Reef with fantastic corals and marine life. A quick boat ride to the south were the famous Likuan & other snorkelling/diving sites. To the...

Perfect price quality hotel. Harrie and his staff are very kind and helfull. Some wooden bungalows have a nice view on the sea. The dive infrastructure are correct, they have a boat and they organize daily boat trip to dive around the island.

The email exchange with Bunaken Sea Garden was excellent, prompt answers to all my questions made me believe that the resort will be run the same efficient way. What a disappointing experience it turned out to be. Upon the arrival to Bunaken, we were supposed to be picked up by the staff, well, no one was waiting for us. The...

I spent four nights at this delightful resort enjoying (1) fabulous snorkeling right offshore, (2) excellent food, three meals a day, (3) gracious hospitality from the owner all the way down through the staff, and (4) comfortable lodging. I would come here again and recommend it over other places on Bunaken.

I was meant to stay here for 5 nights but left after 1, after discovering I could get a much nicer room for the same price at the Two Fishes. My general first impression was not great. They wanted to pick me up at 8am, but my room wasn't even ready. There was no need for the early pick up...

We spent five nights at Sea Garden, and could highly recommend this resort! We were lucky to meet the owner - Sonia, when our public boat got stuck in the sand for three hours near the pier in Manado. We arrived to Bunaken late in the evening, and Sonia took an excellent care of us. Everything promised about the resort...

I stay 10 days in seagarden and had a excellent, relaxing time. Sonja, local owner, was super nice and was really helpful with many things. The staff was so nice too, always smiling. I felt like home. The food was delicious and you could eat a lot. Not only 1 plate. The whole staff and sonja where playing 2 nights...
