Just stayed here two nights, but this place had me wanting to stay. The beach here is amazing, very quiet and relaxing. Thomas goes out of his way to make your stay excellent. We found all kinds of cool coral while we snorkeled and just got relax and watch the world slip by. I want to go back right now... More

We loved this place. I stayed here with my family while I was attending a conference at the Diplomat. This was such a better experience than we would have had at the Diplomat. The hotel is literally on the beach. You walk right out your door onto the beach. Our unit was a one bedroom. It was layed out so... More

Family owned Inn right on the beach. They make you feel at home and the value this place offers is amazing. Very comfortable and safe. Great for families or a couple get away. Each room comes complete with a kitchen. The beach is only steps away. Can't go wrong with a reservation here.

There are decent cheaper lodgings available in the area but Manta Ray is worth a little extra. Very laid back. Several blocks from the boardwalk so you can easily walk to a more active area if you choose to. Staff were all so helpful. If you forgot your book or sunscreen, no problem they have a cache. Clean rooms Right... More

Stayed off season recently in a one bedroom apartment with views of the Ocean. Family owned and operated, the staff were great and the small hotel feel is what we were looking for. Don't have sunscreen because you can't take it on the plane? Not to worry, Thomas has a supply in his office you can use and then pass... More

When we saw this place for the first time, we immediately knew that should we decide to come back to Miami Beach, this would be our preferred option. This property has it all, beach at the doorstep, boardwalk nearby, well maintained courtyard, barbeque amenities, family atmosphere, unbeatable views, well equipped rooms and friendly staff. But what we liked the most... More

This stay was our 5th at Manta Ray Inn. Each year we stay longer--first 2 weeks and now up to 2 months. Why? Gracious owners, accommodating staff, clean apartment, close to water with beautiful sunrises, two blocks from the Broadwalk. Will we come back? Yes--our 2016 stay is already booked.
