The rooms are super clean and organized along with a full kitchen and either one or two bedrooms. The staff are very kind and will always be there to help you. Very very good location in front of the ocean. We recommend it..You will not regret!

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.

We stayed for a few days in October and loved it so much, we are planning a return trip in May. We split our trip between Key West and Hollywood and regretted spending time in Key West, if you can believe it, after staying at the Manta Ray Inn. The Inn is quiet, but close enough to the boardwalk and... More

We have stayed on the beach area for 30 years. This is the best. Clean and comfortable. The management makes you feel at home. You look out your door and see the sun come up over the ocean.

This hotel couldn't be better. It's situated right on the beach, there is plenty of outdoor seating, with chairs both right outside your door for your use, and lounge chairs and tables directly facing the beach also. There is a pool behind the hotel with glass to protect from the wind. The owners and staff provide special touches and extras.... More
