The hotel was really old and smelly, the room was dark, smelly and we couldn't get the airco to work. The surroundings of the hotel and the hotel in itself were not what we expected. We checked in, looked around, went to a nearby restaurant and checked out. I can not honestly advise anyone to stay there for a holiday.... More

At the night you will see how the sea is giving you all romantic views. Then in the morning you can enjoy side walking on the long bay with all beautiful sea-views. The hotel conditioned... More

Before I escorted patient from Manado to Jakarta, we stayed at this hotel. I felt marvelous with it.

We left our phone number at Formosa and luckily after two days they phoned and told us they had a cancelation. We were there in 10mns. It felt like going... More

Back to Manado again earlier this year in May. Looked at other hotels but still stayed at formosa. We just like it. We like the staff, the cleanliness, the location, nice sea views of manado tua from some rooms and good breakfast, everything from fried rice to muffins and toast and jam. Menu for evening meals could be better but... More

Went to Manado for the 1st time. No clue where to stay. Decided to give this hotel a try (3 stars hotel). Pretty basic. No swimming pool, rather small room, no bath tub. If you like local food, you'd find them surrounding the hotel. A bit far from the main mall of the city.
