Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed three nights - two in the bungalow and one in the deluxe room. We recommend the bungalow for the traditional ambiance. The staff are fantastic and nothing is a problem. You can rent good bicycles on-site through the staff to then ride around the island. The internet is a little hit and miss, so best have mobile coverage as a backup. We were also there to dive - so staying onsite with Manta Diving makes life very easy.

Rooms are great and away from the main drag. Food and bar fun and very lively. Staff great. From initial contact to departure all very efficient. Diving amazing lots of life on the reefs and boats well looked after and again boat crews worked hard and always had a smile or helping hand.

I booked this all online, accommodation and open water for myself and my 15yo son Was so easy from start to finish. Everyone of you guys at Manta are Legends. We had an absolute blast with our instructor Robbie. On a scale of 1 - 10, I would give Robbie 11. Then we did deep dive with Majik, also give this guy 11 as well, then went out drinking with him and other Manta staff. They don't just train people to dive, they will hang out with you and party like pirates if you want them to. They will work with you at your pace. Certified open water dive, then spent the next 3 days diving every time the boat went out. Will book again later this year for another 2 weeks of diving. Room was very clean & bed comfy, food was great, the kid lived on sate chicken 😂. The Bintangs were very cold. Manta dive even found me another place to stay after I checked out as they were fully booked and I couldn't extend. Big thankyou to every single one of you at Manta dive. I'll be back 🤪🤪

Certainly the best Caipirinha cocktails on the island! ideal bar location with setting right across the beach along the main drag of Gili T. Great ambiance and even better people met along the way. Food pretty awesome as well. And as the name suggests they offer diving, but the bar is tops ;)

Wonderful bungalow, quiet despite being in the centre of Gili T, comfy bed, amazing outdoor bathroom, lovely pool, very friendly staff, and good breakfast. The only thing that was slightly negative is that their wifi didn’t work well in the bungalow.

Location very good close to the harbour. Excellent for divers if you go there for it. The rooms could be cleaner, we had a deluxe room but you can also book a bungalow. Bathroom semi open. Staff very friendly We rented bikes from them, they are not for free how other hotels offer. 50 k per bike per 24 h. We also organized a private snorkeling, that was a nice experience but you can find it cheaper if you do it by yourself. We paid 600 for 1:40 min. Three spots: blue coral, statues and turtles. But the turtles you can see them from the beach if you swim there. The restaurant friendly staff but food average. They close at 22:00

I won’t recommend this place at all if u wanna take ur open water.Manta Dive Gili T only thinking of reap money from the students only instead of giving the right diving instructor that suitable for the student. They refused to get my open water certification and put all the blame on me instead of listening my side of story first. I was given a diving instructor who hadn’t had any student for a year. Just because I’m Indonesian I was given an Indonesian instructor where the quality of that instructor is not as good as other instructors there, mostly cause he hadn’t had any student for a year before. Don’t go to manta dive gili T.It just a big name dive center with poor quality and full with bunch of arrogant people. There are better dive center if you wanna dive in Gili T who cares with the customer more instead if defending their stupid dive instructor. I would recommend Trawangan Dive,Mango and Blue Marlin.But please stay away from Manta Dive Gili T if you don’t want to end up losing ur money but get nothing in return and then get urself being blamed and marked as stupid student by that dive center instead of apologizing for assigning an unqualified dive instructor to the student who pay !!!

Response from Marcus Stevens, Owner at Manta Dive Gili Trawangan Resort
Responded 1 Apr 2022
Dear JS2619, (Hello Ike.) Your review is not a surprise. We predicted that you would respond in this way, so once again, let me explain. When you join the Open Water Course, the payment you make is for the training that we provide. If you pass the training with success, you will be certified upon completion. You believe that because you paid for the Open Water course you ‘deserve’ (your own words) to receive a certification. Unfortunately, this is not how it works. When you learn to drive a car, your driving instructor will not simply just give you your driving license because you have paid for it. They will make sure you have mastered the handling of the vehicle, have understood the road rules and will not present a danger to yourself or others on the road. The same applies to learning to scuba dive. The Open Water course normally takes 3 full days to complete. A student will be taught about the theory of diving, will be taken in the swimming pool to learn and master the dive skills required, and will be taken on 4 dives in the ocean to put all the new knowledge into practice. If a student cannot master the dive skills immediately, or grasp the theory, we will spend extra one-one-one time with that student to give additional training. For your course, we spent 6 days with you, double the normal course length. We did not ask for additional payment for these extra days, even though we provided you with an instructor, all the dive center resources and additional services. The instructor who you believe to be ‘arrogant and stupid’ gave you his time and patience during these additional days, spending hours with you in the swimming pool trying to work on your comfort levels in the water and mastery of the dive skills required. Despite the extra time, unfortunately you could not demonstrate that you had mastered the skills, nor could you demonstrate that your comfort levels in the water were sufficient for us to be able to certify you as an Open Water diver. It simply would have been unsafe to do so – both for your own personal safety and also for others you may dive with in the future, not to mention how unethical it would be. Contrary to your comments about our ‘unqualified dive instructor’, your dive instructor’s training is up to date. His work ethic is fantastic. He’s passionate and patient. He has been diving for years and has been instructing since 2019 (even during the pandemic) certifying more than 100 students. It is simply not true that he had not had any students for a year. The quality of his work that you mention is fantastic, which is why he is mentioned repeatedly in other reviews for his kindness and professionalism, both on this platform and many other review platforms. And let’s just be clear, we expect these qualities and professionalism of all of our instructors, whichever nationality they are. So in summary, you didn’t get ‘nothing in return’. You got 3 extra days training completely free of charge, clearly demonstrating that we are not a dive center out to ‘reap’ money and that we do care about our customers. And finally, yes, I will defend my dive center and my instructors. I am proud that your instructor persevered with you, giving his time and patience because he is passionate about his job. But mostly I am immensely proud that he stood by his morals, ethics and training levels and refused to certify you in a sport you cannot master with any safety. He did this knowing what your reaction would be. He knew he would be on the receiving end of your character defamation and racism. I have the screen shots of your rude messages to prove he was right. He is a true professional through and through.

I love Manta Dive!! I came here for the first time in 2019 and this was my second time back. I decided there’s no place else I’d rather go. The amenities, location from the harbour and everything else, the staff, food, drinks - everything is fantastic! The staff helped me organise everything from getting there to renting a bike to getting a snorkelling boat too. Their diving staff is, needless to say, excellent beyond par! I did my first dive with them on this trip and signed up for 2 more until my last day. This is my place 100% for whenever I’m going to be in Gili T without a doubt. Highly recommended!!
