I don't use the title of the review lightly... I searched for almost 5 months for the perfect honeymoon destination and finally found Manta... And I made the perfect choice.
I wanted a destination that was not a busy hotel, one that had nice rooms and a perfect beach and found this and soooo much more at Manta.
Everything was just absolutely perfect. The "safari" from the airport to the resort, the warm welcome, the daily treatments at the spa, the food, the drinks, the service, the hospitality, the rooms and the absolutely ridiculously perfect beach with the softest sand you could EVER imagine, everything was just absolutely perfect. We could not have asked for more.
Unfortunately we visited before the underwater room was finished, but judging from my experience, this will probably also be awesome.
We were treated exceptionally well. We enjoyed two amazingly romantic candlelit dinners on the beach, lazy days on the beach, relaxing times in the spa and just great all-round service. From the moment you arrive, you are treated as family, which makes leaving really, really hard, so be warned!
Go for the sea front villas, remember your sunscreen and mosquito spray (just in case), don't be surprised by the tides (we spent our mornings in the spa and the rest of the day, after lunch, on the beach) and get ready to enjoy an amazing, relaxing holiday.
Thank you so much to everyone at the Manta Resort for an unforgettable honeymoon. We will definitely be back!!
