Staff is friendly and provide very good service. They did not take the tips we left under the pillow so we had to put it in the envelope they provided after check out. WiFi was not bad. Bath room is nicer and bigger than most resorts I've been to. The BBQ dinner was good. Only bad thing I can think...

Recently returned from 5 nights in Manado, staying at the Murex Dive Resort. Given that this is a reasonably priced place to stay the accom standard is actually pretty good (it's of course not 5 star, but it's clean, well maintained and the staff are really friendly and helpful). Food is also surprisingly decent. Wifi is only available in the...

Thank you for your review and nice comments. It was great having your group with us and a special thank you to your group leader; she was well organized and we worked well together organizing your trip.

We stayed at the Murex Manado Dive resort in late June early July 2016 for 2 nights. The accomodations were good but not great, the diving was awesome, and the food was okay.

I have rated this resort as pretty good in the context of being a diving oriented resort in a fairly remote location. You come here for the great diving, knowing full well that its focus is on the diving experience and catering for the needs of divers, not trying to meet the needs of people on a 5 star luxury...

In hopes that my observations about Murex Manado are as helpful as possible, please permit me to include some context about my perspective as a mid-sixties, semi-retired bureaucrat, who was NAUI certified more than 20 years ago and signed up for Murex’s open water dive course to regain confidence under water and become PADI certified.
