I've lived in Tanzania for a long time and been to many beach resorts, but this was one of my best experiences yet. Manta has a lovely beach, good service, really nice food and excellent snorkeling and diving right near by and a nice dive shop with good dive leaders - especially for we less and moderately experienced divers. Each group is assigned a personal service "fundi" and ours was great. The resort package comes all inclusive with food, drinks (including alcohol) and daily spa treatments for each person! We were three families with kids, and although they don't normally have many young children there - they welcomed us with open arms and made accomodations for food and time of dinner. None of us wanted to leave and I imagine that we'll be back.
