This review is based on the Diving aspect of Manta Lodge, I cannot comment on the hotel aspects since I haven't stayed at the property. However, I've dived with the owner on multiple occasions from his operations center at the lodge. Sean (the owner) is an incredibly experienced and knowledgeable dive operator. His local knowledge of the area and its... More

This is my second stay at the Manta Lodge, with my first being late November 2013, and I went back mid-July along with my son for a week of diving and relaxation. The people and diving are superb. From the pick up at the airport to the drop off at the end of our stay, they took care of my... More

We are recently back from a short break at Manta Lodge as part of a school trip from the UK. I have to say we absolutely cannot fault it. The management and staff are amazing and cannot do enough for you. The snorkeling was the most amazing experience and the children we were travelling with really enjoyed it. The setting... More

Ten divers spent a week at the Manta Lodge in June and had a fantastic time! Although the resort itself is a little run down, it's charming and cozy. The staff is the best ever, especially Julia and Caressa in the restaurant/bar. They were so lively and fun, not to mention attentive! If you are looking for action this is... More

Best place ever! The hotel is located at the end of the calm village of Speyside, right by the ocean. I´t is clean and cosy with a nice pool and chilling area and a restaurant. Free wifi. Nice rooms with view over the Atlantic. At first we were staying at another hotel up the hill where I found it a... More

My experience with the Manta Lodge was like meeting old friends. A most relaxing and simple experience with stellar vistas of the Carribean and the craggy outcrops. This birds are singing in this tropical hamlet and the island charm takes over. The diving with Sean, who is the proprietor ,and his crew was spellbinding as the condition of the reefs... More

As on previous trips the friendly staff at the Manta Lodge were as helpful and charming as ever, a must go place to go for diving in the Carribean. Hope to be able to get there in the near future, a great alround experience. Well done!

A fabulous experience. Great hotel in a quiet beachside community. Right on the beach, walking distance to the few small shops and restaurants in town. Impeccably clean and comfortable. But what really sets it apart is the people. Kathleen and Sean and all the rest of the Manta staff are amazing. They are always willing to go out of their... More

To get a real feel for the beauty and attitude of Tobago head to Speyside and Manta Lodge. If you're a diver its a must but its also a great launching point for anyone who wants to explore the undeveloped eastern end of the island. Pristine empty beaches, rainforest, and amazing views overlooking Speyside beach. I especially enjoyed the sunrises... More

We arrived to the Manta Lodge in the evening so had no idea of how beautiful it would be when we woke up in the morning. The lodge sent a driver to retrieve us from the airport and they were very kind to get us so late. It took almost an hour at the customs line so be prepared for... More
