Dabirahe is a nice, peaceful resort overlooking the Lembeh Strait. We stayed there for four nights in December. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, especially since the resort is pretty isolated from outside restaurants and entertainment. We ate at the hotel for almost every meal, which was fine since the food was decent. The drive from Manado to Lembeh Hills is about 3 hours. The hotel will tell you 2 hours, but with traffic and everything, it comes out to being 3 or more hours. We did the drive one day to snorkel in Bunaken, which was worth the drive and absolutely amazing. The rooms and bathrooms at Dabirahe were nice, clean, and simple. I only snorkel, and as far as that goes, I saw enough cool creatures and critters in Lembeh to make me happy.
The only downside of staying here was the isolation. The Lembeh Strait is a great place, but this isolation meant that in addition to food options, we really didn't have too many options for snorkel packages, car packages, and other tour packages. We booked everything with the hotel, which made the trip quite expensive overall. I would probably stay closer to Manado next time. That said, Dabirahe would be a great hotel for divers, honeymoon couples, and young families.
