The hotel is very well located for diving on Bunaken islands not the middle of the best dive sites very close by and basically for diving. It's not a 5 star hotel but has all the comforts like A/c, hot and cold *fresh* water, restaurant, pool, small spa etc. At the end of the day it's a welcome comfort. The...

I spent now the 4. time at Bastianos over a periode of 11 years and changes are obvious. Bastianos Bunaken is a top place for relaxed snorkling and diving. Located right next to the beach and a nice coral reef it's at any time possible to enjoy the great underwater world of Bunaken. Bad luck, the local people of the...

We booked through Agoda and had an issue with the booking that was quickly rectified. Really enjoyed the food. The views, especially sunset are fantastic. And, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Also, they were very kind to my son and seemed to enjoy playing with him.... We were only there two days, but they were good days!

The resort is very nice and the staff really warmful. Food is always good. I would suggest to add some local food randomly. The "key" point in Bunaken is the diving that is awesome! Reef is in pristine conditions and dive guides are very clever in founding and showing to guests all the underwater creatures. Diving activities are very well...

We stayed at Bastianos for 7 nights recently and had a great time. The diving was great. I did 10 dives over 6 days and my partner did 2.

The staff was friendly. Our room was right by the water. During low tide we can still walk on the sand, but during high tide, in the middle of the night we heard the waves splashing right in front of our room, bringing a very relaxing rhythm. We woke up at night, and the reflection of the full moon was...
