I stayed three nights at the Grand Luley with my family and we had a great time! Differently from the typical diving resorts and lodges in Manado, that are very rustic and divers oriented, the Luley has excellent rooms and a great service. The staff is very polite and helpful. The restaurant serves excellent indonesian and western food. The diving center can accomodate the needs of hardcore divers and snorkling fans (like My wife and I). My two older daughters (14 and 11 years old) did the Discovery diving training and the instructor (Frank) has a natural talent to deal with teenagers. The Luley is just 15-20 minutes from the main diving & snorkeling sites at Bunaken. We had a fantastic snorkeling session at a site named Timur, that has a give variety of coral reefs and fishes.
The hotel also offers tours to the Highlands and to a Volcano.
There's still a lot of construction and refurbishing going on at the hotel but it didn't disturb the guests.
My family loved this resort and I am sure we will return many times. Highly recommended!
