The Manta Resort’s site notes that the room is $750 per person/room/night for double occupancy($1500) or $900 room/night for single occupancy.  It can be booked in combination with a land stay at the resort for a night or two or for the duration of you stay if you budget allows.

The nightly price includes the resort’s extensive all-inclusive plan.  Instead of buffets they serve your meals personally to you at your table on our verandah.  They have free WIFI in the main lounge and dining area and include a daily spa treatment per person at their Kipepeo Spa so you can be as relaxed as possible.
