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...

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...

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...

Manta Lodge Speyside is not a hotel. it's an attitude! If you choose to spend some time there, you'll get a chance to do great diving, meet friendly people and dogs, eat tasty local food and find a little bit of paradise. It's a place with heart and once you're part of it, you never want to go back home!

The Manta Lodge on Tobago was a great get away. Sean Robinson and Kathleen along with their staff and 3 lovable dogs made all 6 in our party feel right at home. Stunning ocean views of Goat Island and the town of Seyspray was very warming. I can not express enough how fabulous all the dives were. Tuli and the...

I was fortunate enough to spend a weekend at the Manta Lodge and enjoy their hospitality and diving. The hotel has a fantastic view of the bay at Speyside and is close to the jetty where the dive operation, Tobago Dive Experience, has the charter boat. I have stayed at fancier place in my travels, but Manta Lodge was exactly...

Had a very nice stay at Manta Lodge in Speyside. The owners Kathleen and Sean made us feel right at home from the beginning.

I stayed at the Manta Lodge, Speyside for the first time for 2 nights during March. I'm a Trini, but like so many of us, I've not lived in T&T for over 20 years. And, although I have visited many times, primarily for diving, this was the first time I've stayed in the north of 'bago. I've often wondered about...

“I liked having a queen and twin bed, but you can ask for two twins to be put together to make a king. We were on the first level, which is fewer stairs.”
