The dive sights were varied and the boat well kitted out and fun with an emphasis on safety.

Great choice, I just did my open water in Manta and loved it. About booking it, the way I did it was directly with them, they just told me to confirm maximum until 8.00 pm of the day before and then we could start the following day. I know they also have a Facebook page, but I’m not sure how responsive they are as WiFi in the island is sometimes unstable.
Regarding your stay, I know manta has accommodation, so that could be an option, but the island is quite small (you can walk around it in about 1.5 hours), so it’s not really a problem where you stay (although I would recommend close to the south east side of the island, we personally stayed in Lagi Homestay and were quite happy about it).
I hope it was helpful, happy diving!
P.S.: all the personnel and instructors in manta were very helpful and nice, our instructor was called Sebastian, he was very nice and responsible, so even though I think you’ll be fine with any other instructor, I highly recommend Seb :)
