We had a two night layover in Manado before heading to Sarong for a live-aboard so we chose Tasik Ria to be near water and have easy relaxation. The resort was incredibly quiet so during the day we were just about the only guests around since we were holding off on diving until the live-aboard. It has to be hard to figure out staff for so few guests so at times we had to find someone for what we needed, but everyone was willing to find the right person or do what they could themselves. The pool was also beautifully maintained and a great place to relax. The rooms were comfortable, but a bit dated. Our understanding is work is being done to update the rooms, starting with the beach front cabins, but we were in a pool side room. The highlight of our stay at Tasik was when Dave, the hotel manager, took us to a local spot for breakfast. He was excited to share the local fare with us and it was delicious food and the people were welcoming. The grounds were very pleasant, the beers were cold and the food tasty. Dave goes out of his way to make people comfortable and to help them do anything local they may be interested in. The drive to the hotel is an hour or more from the airport, but Tasik is a great option if you have the time.
