My wife and I stayed two nights at the Manta in June 2009. The most impressive part was the help we received from Vidya in actually getting to and from the Manta (transport, accommodation), and the comfort of our stay once there. The Manta is not a place for people who want 5 star everything, but if you want comfortable accommodation, reasonable prices and want to experience well organised diving then this is the place for you. The surrounds are lovely, fresh air, and very relaxing. I have a non-diving spouse and she really enjoyed the relaxation with a wonderful view over the bay from our room on the first floor. The diving staff were very helpful and while some of the equipment was well used, it was also well maintained and worked flawlessly. My only recommendation for divers is to take your own computer as some of the dives are quite deep (>100ft). Overall, I would have no hesitation at staying at the Manta again and going to the places I missed last time. The worst part of the trip: I had to leave after only two days.
