Like a formal resort, not so friendly feeling but you can expect for nice accommodations. Every meal not so creative especially for breakfast. At dining room area quite hot, have a lot of mosquito and they not open the fan until you ask. Some dive leads not so professional enough and dive too fast for finding a small creature.

Please do not hesitate to contact us directly to let us know with which dive guide you were diving with so we can instruct him to dive more slowly...

My husband and I stayed at Bastianos for 9 days....it was our perfect vacation: relaxing, adventurous, and cultural. We arrived, not knowing how to dive, and were immediately well set up and oriented by our PADI instructor who doubles as one of the hotel managers. She was immediately so personable and trustworthy I knew we were in good hands. I'm...

I stayed at Bastianos for almost a week, and I did not want to leave. The resort is beautiful, the diving is awesome and the people are lovely! We were never more than four people with our dive guide and dives were relaxed with plenty of time to look for macro stuff or just enjoy the nice wall. The managers...

I stayed for 3 days and 2 nights at Bastianos Bunaken. Everything (arrangements, pickup, scheduling, etc) were very easy. I did not dive and would suggest for those who dont to join the dive boats as its a super easy way to connect with other guests. I would also suggest taking an occasional stroll up the villages and having a...

Lovely weather in April perfect for scuba diving. Picked up and greeted by the friendly and courteous Bastianos staffs at the Calaka pier. About 40 minutes boat ride we arrived at Bastianos Dive Resort Bunaken. Rome and Max (the Managers) were the 1st to shake my hand. Immediately felt welcomed and warmth.

I am a non diver but found this to be a friendly place with good food and helpful staff. The pool area needs developing a bit more but otherwise very pleasant. We had a beautiful room right on the beach and you could hear the sea at night time. The resort works really hard to clear the rubbish washed up...
