Mixed feelings about this beautiful place, mainly because it's too expensive in comparison to other accommodations around and for what is offered + good food in nice atmosphere + friendly, helpful owner which gave us a ride from the city on the way back from a shopping trip + nice pool in lovely garden + beautiful terrasse, they have an...

Its always good to see and read a review from a guest. We can learn from it. Its would only be nice that the facts are right then. You can't compare the price for a tour from an other organization. The price our guest and the "Dutch" guest did pay where the same. The price of the tour was given... More

I don't understand why there are so many good reviews about Four Fish Hotel. – Rooms are small and dark: you need to switch on the lights even during the day. They are also hot (no good ventilation). – The bathroom is really small, like a closet with a curtain to separate the toilet from the shower. – No hot water... More

After we travelled nearly 1 month in Sulawesi, we stayed here to avoid hustle and bustle of Manado city. It's a charming guesthouse with friendly people.

I chose this accommodation partly because of the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. While I don't really disagree with what's been written already, I'm adding this to provide a different point of view. The first thing to note is that Tongkaina, the village where the 4 Fish is, is VERY quiet. There doesn't seem to be much to do except wander... More

“Rooms on deck are mosquito-free and do not have stairs. Downstairs rooms have easier access to pool and have no street noise.”

“Two rooms have A/C for small additional charge, we found overhead fan totally sufficient. Need your own shampoo & favorite bath soap. Mosquito repellant suggested but not necessary.”
