“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Great place to stay. The location is very good if you want to be in the busier part of the island. All the bars and restaurants are very close (so do take ear plugs if you want an early night). The room was great, wee loved the open air shower. The staff are really helpful and friendly and the breakfast is good.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with friends

Fourth time on Gili T now and each time we have gone back to Manta Bungalows (Manta Dive), our experience has just gotten better! The rooms are clean, traditional with all the amenties you would need or want. Double rooms with aircon, hot water, TV/DVD facilities, added touches of flowers on the bed after the room is cleaned every day, always a nice little touch and a swimming pool. ALL staff are super friendly and extremely helpful. Dive instructors and guides are top quality (I have dived all over the world and can honestly say the instructing, guiding and safety standards are top notch!). Socially, its a great place to meet people and make friends. Each time we leave we have added a few more to the list and will definitely be heading back again very soon! Great location too - boat from Lombok/Bali drops you off right outside, so no need to walk far, in fact you hit the bar before you even hit the reception - perfect order! HIGHLY recommend this little spot to anyone (perfect for single/couple/families).

Room Tip: Bungalows at the back are tucked away for more privacy and are separate from each other - although t...

Great bungalows tucked just off the main road

Very close to the beach (for best beaches turn right out of the front and keep walking for about 15 minutes - this gets you in to the posher side of Gili T)

The bungalows were clean, and gave us everything we needed for a few days relaxing a snorkelling around the island.

We didnt make use of the dive facilities, although the hotel was buzzing with divers.

Would definitely recommend!

Manta Bungalows are definetely a great place to stay. The staff is very friendly and will help you with anything you need. The reception is just behind the diveshop, which is clearly the most fun dive shop of the island. The diving instructors are very professional and friendly and love to have a chat with anyone at the diving school. The vibe is really good with the divers around. You won't notice anything about the diving school when in your room though. These are situated backwards from the diving shop, so it's nice and quiet. The location itself is great, with all the popular restaurants and beach spots very close.

The rooms are clean and the beds are great. Furthermore the aircon was working well, and there's a safe, minibar and TV to complete the room. Great WiFi too by the way, considering the fact that you're on a little beautiful island. The outdoor bathroom is very spacious and we enjoyed showering while looking at the palm trees :) Breakfast is served in front and has enough choice.

Overall we would definetely like to come back here!

stayed in the bunglows for 4 nights and the other rooms for 2 nights.
very clean , water pressure is just ok, good staff,good food and great diving.
the only problem is that you are trying to sleep to get up early for diving , with live bands playing on each side of you. i just thought that playing untill 3 am was a bit rude of them. take ear plugs.
apart from that its a great place to do diving with,
will go back there for diving.

We stayed in a traditional bungalow and were very impressed by the quality of accommodation.

Comfortable bed, good air conditioning, beautiful private outdoor shower and bathroom, TV, safe, in fact all the mod cons you could expect.

As others have mentioned the only real issue with staying in this part of the island is the noise from the bars on the main drag which seem to go on we'll into the wee hours. If you have decent earplugs you may just be able to sleep (I did), but I wouldn't stay here without earplugs unless I was parting well into the wee hours at which point you'll most likely sleep through anything.

Staff were all lovely, breakfast was simple but nice enough, and diving was well organised and professional.

In summary Manta has lovely accommodation, and if, like us, you know to expect some noise, you'll be we'll prepared to cope with it.

Would be happy to stay again if I ever come back to Gili T.

The bungalow is ok!
You got:
- hot water
- air con
- hot shower
- good breakfast
(Bad madras and pillow).
And owerall the standard is good, and the People working here is friendly.

But, I really look forward to sleep somewhere else!!!!
After six nights with following. I'm
soon going crazy!!:
- live bands that not can sing
- the prayer from the Moske that wakes you up every morning at 5 pm
- cats screaming outside
- hen cackling
- and the worst bed/madras with the wirst pillow I ever have slept in...
So when all this things wakes you up - it is impossible to fall asleep again because of the hurt in the neck and back....

If you have are a sleeper, stay here.
If not go somewhere else!!!
I will recommend you to stay as long away from the Moske and the party street as possible!

If you afford it - stay at the more luxury bungalows in "the end" of the party street, around the Ko Ko Mo restaurant!!!
