We stayed for 5 days in this wonderful resort. We had three days of diving (boatdives) and that was great. The afternoon dives were better than the morning dives but i like muckdiving better.
The manager Dan is a great guy. He used to be a cook in England but married a local woman and stayed in Manado. Because of his background you can imagine the food is great. Most of the times you eat a la carte in the restaurant but sometimes they organise a buffet near the dive bar, wich is great.
The days we didn't dive we relaxed at the pool wich is huge and clean. Also has a poolbar for snacks and drinks. The small children's pool is cooler than the big swimming pool, so if you need to cool down, take that one. When we were there there were no children, propably becaus the majority of the guests are divers.
The beachvilla's are also great. We had nr. 600 wich is the last house on the beach. There's also a third pool wich looks ok but we didn't use it.
The dive bar is great. This was the first decent bar we had in the whole of Sulawesi. As long as there are guests it stays open. Sometimes Dan the Manager joins you for a drink and a story or two.
Don't let there website fool you. The site is outdated and doesn't give a correct representation of the resort. Dan, can i make a new website?
If you go diving in Manado and want first class diving and resort. Look no further. Go for the Tasik Ria Resort. You won't regret it.
