Stayed a few nights. Breakfast choice was okay, staff quite friendly and helpful.
WiFi in the deluxe cottages can be a bit hit and miss. But hey, people go to the Gilis for the island vibe and diving/snorkeling. If you want and/or expect a super fast internet service, stay at home.

Hi and thank you for choosing Manta Dive as your holiday destination. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our Deluxe Bungalows.

We offer the wifi in the public areas but we cannot guarantee that it works in the rooms. As you noted the connection is not always the best one, being on a remote island, but most customers find this a nice excuse to switch off. We try always to see if there is anything we can do to get the connection better for example, by re-booting the router. If any future customers are having similar problems, we greatly appreciate it if our guests let us know at the time so we can attempt to fix it.

We are glad that you liked the room and enjoyed your stay with us and on Gili Air. Hopefully you will come visit us on another occasion. Thank you again for taking the time to review your experience with us and giving us valuable feedback and a chance to improve our services.

Great spot. So convenient for any would-be divers, to wake up, have breakfast and get ready for diving within 30 feet of each other! Huge variety of dive sites, and the accom is fantastic too. Thanks to Piia and Chris who helped us out hugely

Stayed with Manta on Gili Air for two weeks, intending to only do my SSI Open Water course to be a certified diver, but after just two dives I knew i would be doing a lot more than that. I ended up diving every day I was there.
The instructors and staff and incredibly friendly and all very capable.
It was more than i could have hoped for and far better than anything i could have imagined.
I knew they had a very high rating on trip advisor and my opinion is that they deserve it by far.
I cannot begin to describe how wonderful of a time i have had and I was very sad to leave. I will doubtless be returning to dive more very soon!
Special thanks to the instructors i had, Dayana for the Open Water, Hanoman for my Advanced and Phoebe for the specialty courses, who all were fantastic teachers and wonderful people that i would more than happily dive with again.
Also a great thank you to Jenni for the photography and Al for letting my try his fins.
If i could give a 6/5 rating i would.

THANK YOU Manta Dive for introducing me to the world of Scuba Diving, i will be back!

Way overdue in writing about my dive experience at Manta. My family rented a boat with captain, dive instructor, and dive master. Much of my family snorkeled while the rest of us went scuba diving. After an in-pool session, I completed my PADI open water dive certification with Manta equipment and with Jess, a Manta instructor. It was all top notch. By the time I finished I was diving with confidence. I felt that Jess always put safety first and was always in control. She is an excellent instructor and example, and made the dives super enjoyable. We had 4 different sites, with Jess leading the way, teaching and pointing out the amazing sights. Highly recommend Manta, and many thanks to Jess!

My boyfriend and I spent 5 days on Gili Air, planning to get our open water cert. I’m so glad we chose manta as the dive center, everything about it was perfect. We didn’t use their accommodation so I can’t say anything about that apart from the bungalows looked very nice.

But as for the diving... Phoebe and Al were amazing. They had excellent communication, patience, knowledge and passion for diving . When we felt out of our depth/ nervous they easily reassured us. They defiantly made the experience for us.

I would also recommend asking Jen to picture one of your dives. Taking pictures underwater is certainly not easy even if she makes it look so. She has a really reasonable charge and her pictures were great!

So I just want to say thank you to the whole team at Manta.

Hi Anna,

Thank you for taking the time to review us. It is great to hear that we met or exceeded all of your expectations regarding your dive course, as this is always our goal. Phoebe and Al enjoyed teaching you and sparking your interest in diving. It is always appreciated when someone takes the time to say thank you to a job well done.

We hope to see you back again soon to keep up your practice now that you are a certified diver. Until then, happy bubbles!
