Highland Resort and Spa Kinilow Reviews
Avoid it,stay in the close GARDENIA instead! Sep 14, 2009
We were picked up at the harbour by the reliable driver of this resort where we stayed 3 nights in a Deluxe???? Cottage(50 euro).At 650 m above sea level,Kinilow is a small village situated between Tomohon and Manado and offers a cool and quiet venue.
We had a large bedroom but with an average bed and a too small mosquito net.The bathroom is very basic but well decorated by gecko droppings!
The restaurant is run by numerous young and incompetent gals and guys who don't speak English and serve basic food on neglected tables.If you want a cold Bintang or water,check their fridge before!
The Spa was closed because of Ramadan(a bit surprising in an area where more than 90% of the people are Christians!).
We did 2 overpriced but nice tours:Minahasa highland tour for 45 euro each and the Tangkoko one for 60 euro:the driver,Mickael and the guide,Modi are reliable and friendly.
We had a look and a dinner at the close GARDENIA:professional and friendly staff,clean and comfy accomodation and good cuisine!
In fact,Charlie,the young owner of Highland resort doesn't care of it,doing a big business in a new restaurant and huge meeting room.
DONT GO THERE GO TO GARDENIA!
