We short-vacationed and celebrated my best friend's 10yr breast cancer survival at The Manta Ray Inn! The staff was super friendly and the location and apartment style room were great! They were very willing to help out whatever our request was! They had a cook-out for their guests during our stay, with snacks, food, and drinks provided. Where does that...

The Manta Ray Inn family were so happy to have you as guests even though it was a very short stay! Celebrating something very special and letting us be apart of that made it even more important to us that you are now all Manta Ray Inn family!!

This is our third stay at Manta Ray and once again everything was perfect. The room is always clean and the views of the ocean and palm trees are always specatacular. The Broadwalk is a pleasant place to watch people and eat breakfast. All the people--guests and staff--are friendly and make us feel welcome. We have stayed at various places...

Found the Manta Ray Inn through Tripadvisor and couldn't have been happier. We booked a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment as we were with friends and it was exactly right for our needs - comfortable beds, clean bathrooms with efficient showers and a small but well equipped kitchen, dining and lounge area. The ocean view is magnificent and the location...

This was our 4th stay at the Manta Ray Inn. The rooms are very clean and well kept and the owners and staff meet all of your needs. I had a dental problem while there this time and Donna was right there to assist me. We have stayed at a lot of different places in Hollywood Beach and the Manta...

I want to start my review by referring to a review that you'll see a bit farther down the page, submitted by "joeodo". I don't know where this guy stayed, but it certainly wasn't at the Manta Ray Inn! I think he either stayed somewhere else and is very confused, or he's simply a nut-case! After staying at the Manta...

My wife and I visited the Manta Ray February 2013 and are planning a repeat visit next year. Clean, quiet, well kept up, solidly constructed from back in the day... The owners have done an admirable job and are well respected by repeat customers, which says quite a lot. An impromptu barbecue sprung up midweek, hosted by the owners, which...

Manta Ray Inn is over priced and understaffed in a strange and troubling manner. Management closes its office everyday at 5 PM. That's right, 5PM. If you have any kind of problem with the facilities, or need helpful information, a small note near the office door directs you to an outdoor phone in a nearby corridor. I'm not sure how...

The staff at the Manta Ray Inn are saddened by your review and slightly confused. It certainly contradicts the note you left us stating “unfortunately, we have had to leave your beautiful resort because of a medical emergency.” As the owner of this Inn and the person who checked you in, I reached out to you by telephone upon your...
