I stayed in a standard bungalow here for three nights. The location is fine, set just outside of Tomohon so that you don't get disrupted by most of the noise from town. Tomohon itself is nothing to write home about; some might call it rustic - others may say it's dilapidated.
The resort is getting a bit old and worn. Considering the price, it's probably not good value for money either. On their website they advertised the standard bungalow for 250,000 rupiah per night. When I went to leave and pay my bill they gave me a nice surprise and told me the price had gone up to 350,000 per night. Not happy; very unprofessional!
The service is mediocre and only one of the staff, not including Ono the owner, speak English. Restaurant food was good and the Wi-Fi was sound.
There's not much to do in Tomohon but this is a good place if you want to relax in a serene environment and get-away-from-it-all.
My advice to Ono is that he and his staff need to go and do some hospitality training. The service needs a lot of improvement.
