This was a place that just grew on us - we had booked 4 days at the start of our Tobago visit and planned to go to Crown Point for the balance of our Tobago trip of 5 more days. We ended up taking a couple of days in Crown Point at a 4 star resort. But, found we much...

We stayed here for 6 nights to dive & relax, and really enjoyed our stay. The lodge is across the road from the ocean, which made for great breezes, views and wooshing from the waves. Our room was very clean and comfortable, with a lovely high ceiling, doors opening onto a small balcony overlooking the sea, & air conditioning. We...

I want to disagree with the 2 reviews from the beginning of Feb. Manta lodge is a small family run hotel. Most people who go there go to dive but my family does not dive. The staff went out of their way to find and book many wonderful hikes and snorkeling experiences for us since we were not divers. Yes...

I too was one of the unfortunate few who travelled with Kim C on this trip to Speyside. I have to reiterate and concur on all of her points regarding this unfortunate excuse for a hotel. As was mentioned basic would not have been a problem but the total lack of the basic amenities was. Service was non existent, rooms...

Having read the latest review, I felt I had to write a review of this property as my experience was the other end of the spectrum. I travelled with five friends - the purpose of the trip to dive and celebrate my 50th birthday. I was not expecting luxury accommodation and am used to staying in basic diving lodges, but...

We just spent 2 great weeks at Manta Lodge, diving and relaxing with friends. The Lodge is like staying at a private beach house, not an Americanized resort. The owners, staff, divemasters and guests all hang out together creating a friendly atmosphere. Sasha and Elaina prepared food that was reflective of the many different cultures of Tobago and it was...

This place is like a secret gold mine, It isn't the over-the top touristy, crowded, commercialized usual dive destination. It's a place of amazingly untouched natural beauty. The people were so sweet and helpful, both at the hotel and as a female on a walk alone through this beautiful, small village. One week wasn't enough. There is so much to...

Even though our visit to Manta Lodge was 2 years ago it stands out as a place that we WILL visit again. We think about it often and have been meaning to write so many times. Our stay was great!

I recently spent a few nights at Manta Lodge and was more than happy with the laid back atmosphere of the place. The accomodations are basic but cozy and all of the rooms have a great little balcony with an oceanview....who could ask for more than that! Both the hotel and dive staff make your visit to this sleepy little...

“This apartment was on the ground floor right below their cafe. Easy access to the beach right out front and the dive shop next door.”

“If you want a room that is quieter ask for one farther away from the dining, office and dive shop.”

“I liked having a queen and twin bed, but you can ask for two twins to be put together to make a king. We were on the first level, which is fewer stairs.”
