As always when Manta Ray Inn family members leave we feel very sad. This year especially because Dwayne and I could not join in the fun as much as we would have liked to!! Next year will be even better in many ways and I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to see you both healthy and happy. Please... More

We recently returned from our first visit to the Manta Ray Inn. Upon our arrival, we were cordially greeted by the staff headed by Thomas who, at every turn, made us feel right at home. The entire atmosphere at the Mantra Ray Inn was comfortable and welcoming. It is situated in a fabulous location with extraordinary views of the expansive,... More

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! Although we always try to make all of our families feel special and make their kids feel like they have the run of the beach (which they do), it is so gratifying to hear from a younger member of one of our greatest Manta Ray Inn families that you envision bringing your family here!!...

I have been staying at the Manta Ray Inn every year in December since before it was even the Manta Ray Inn! The location is excellent - very close to the broadwalk, but quietly away from it, right on the beach - open your door and you are there. Only a 10-15 minute drive to the Aventura Mall and other...

This was my second extended vacation at the Manta Ray Inn and as usual, had a fabulous time. If you want to be right on the beach without having to lug chaise lounges etc, this is the place for you.
