2023 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
Named in 2022 by Tripadvisor Travelers as one of the Hottest New Hotels in the WORLD, Manta Island Resort is more than a private island resort located on Glover’s Reef, a breathtaking marine reserve and a world heritage site off the southern coast of Belize. This all inclusive beach resort is the sanctuary you hoped for but thought didn’t exist — designed to surpass your expectations; likely to exceed them. While the resort itself is an epicenter of off-the-grid luxury and superior customer service, it’s the free marine activities to which every guest is entitled in the all inclusive package rates that make this location unique. While many island resorts add fees to just about everything under the sun, you’re invited to swim, snorkel from the island, take part in Glover’s Reef group snorkeling adventures, pilot a Hobie cat and go island hopping. Guests settle into comfortably elegant oceanfront cabanas that promise the ultimate in privacy. Each is located close to the water’s edge so you’ll experience indoor/outdoor living steps from the sea. The island also has three two-bedroom Reef Villas, one with its own plunge pool.

This has been the best vacation ever! The views are amazing all around, the food is incredible, and the stuff are all so kind! The layout of everything on the island makes the stay super convenient and easy to get around. There’s fun activities to do on the island like paddle boarding and the water in the pool is warm! It is a great experience and I’d most definitely recommend it!

Hotel's Favorite
We had the best time during our stay at Manta Island. We came with family and friends to celebrate my husband's birthday. I don’t even know where to begin. From the time we stepped foot on the island to the time we sadly had to leave, it was awesome! The beauty of the clear blue water and the perfectly manicured island is something we already miss. The birthday dinner on the beach was fabulous! We had even requested a guitar so that one of our friends could entertain us, and Manta provided. That was such a special treat. They certainly went above and beyond to make our special time absolutely perfect! I can't say enough about Kris in the reservation office and his team. They truly made sure everything we hoped for (and more) were provided. To say they are a dream team is an understatement. The activities such as the snorkeling trip and island hopping/snorkeling as well as the paddle boards, kayaks, catamaran, and volleyball with the staff were so fun. Speaking of the staff...wow. We can’t say enough about them. They were all simply the best. Axel, Franklin, Rosie, Amelia, Chef Joe, Kendall and all the others helped make our stay perfect. (I am sure I misspelled some names…and didn’t mention everyone, but they are ALL already missed). We will definitely be returning soon. Thank you again for helping us make some wonderful memories. Sheri and Jeff Culton…

I had the best time here at Manta!! Everyone was so polite and welcoming. The boat ride was very smooth, and after we were greeted with drinks and cold eucalyptus rags. The view was out of this world! The staff was very nice and made us feel right at home. We stayed in a villa and the plunge pool was so convenient and one of a kind. At night you can go out on the dock and see all of the sting rays and nurse sharks swimming in the water. I recommend Manta! We will be coming back soon!!

The resort is beautiful and the staff was amazing with our 1.5yo daughter. Mike and Nikki make amazing cocktails and even did some virgin drinks for our kiddo. They made a special breakfast, lunch, and dinner for her everyday. It was an amazing experience that we shared with family and friends and we can’t wait to return.

We just got back from one of the best trips of our life. Belize is so diverse and the people are so kind but our 4 days at this island were just the icing on the cake. Manta checked every box for us. Adventure for the kids, luxury for us, relaxation after a busy week on the mainland, excellent food, world class diving, and the staff were beyond amazing. I could go on and on…a magical island for sure!!! The resort is in middle of an atoll and the sealife was just incredible all around the resort. Even if you don’t snorkel or dive you will see so much. It was a unique experience to say the least. Im looking forward to sending clients here! I know they will be taken care of. #mantamagic

I long had a dream of staying at an all-inclusive tropical island resort. There were many things I had in my head of what to expect. Manta Island met all of my dreams and expectations and more. The facilities are top-notch, well constructed, clean, very nicely furnished. The staff are all exceptionally professional, friendly, helpful, and delightful. The quality of the food and cocktails was amazing. The opportunities to mix outdoor recreation with simply relaxing on the beach are fantastic. And no matter where you sleep, the ocean is only steps away. My wife and I visited to celebrate our fifteenth wedding anniversary. But we had never enjoyed a honeymoon. This became the honeymoon we never had. We selected the add-ons of the sunset cruise and the private dinner, and I would recommend those to any couples wanting some quality time with exceptional service. …

The property and the staff are second to none! It is really hard to find a better place to relax than Manta. The food is also fantastic. There is a fresh seafood option everyday and they also serve local cuisine. Love this place!!

This place is stunning. The island itself is glorious—my favorite thing was laying in a hammock on the beach, feeling like I was in a stock photo of the perfect tropical vacation. The cabanas are comfortable, spacious, and well maintained. The food and drinks are excellent. The staff are friendly, attentive, and helpful. My husband went on a dive and was impressed with the scuba guide. I went on several snorkeling excursions and had a ton of fun. The guides pointed out things I’d never seen before and would’ve missed. The boat ride to and from the resort can be pretty rough depending on the weather, but is worth it. Definitely bring bug spray and itch remedies. I made the mistake of walking around without bug spray the first day and got a bunch of sand fly bites. (Highly recommend bringing Benadryl gel and hydrocortisone just in case.) This place is really special. It’s quiet and laid back. There’s plenty to do, but you don’t feel like you’re missing out if you just lounge on the beach because just being there feels so nice.…
