I can't say enough about how welcome I felt upon arriving at Siladen Resort. We were greeted on the beach with warm friendly smiles and we were only asked our names once and from that point on, every member of the staff called us by name.
The dive guides are superb, and make you feel like you are the only people that matter. The ratio of 4 divers per guide plus matching non photographers together, made for a very pleasant dive experience as we watched underwater behaviors and for photographers, they didn't have to share their subjects with us people who just want to look at stuff. Currents were crazy, most diving is done on vertical walls, lots of fishlife, turtles and critters but no big stuff. Reef is mostly in very good condition but some bleaching and storm damage is evident.
The rooms are bungalow style, very comfortable with a large patio and also an open shower in the bathroom. There were no mosquitos or bugs to speak of. There was also quaint entertainment 3 nights during the time we stayed, from the local village, which added to the authentic island experience.
Go to Siladen resort, spend a week diving in the Bunaken Marine Reserve, you will be glad you did.More
