The Manta Ray will be my first choice from now on. The unit I stayed in, #205, was spacious, clean, had all the amenities I could possibly want, along... More

My wife and 2 young children stayed here August 2012. Great place. Management and staff were very friendly, rooms were very spacious, clean and new. The ocean is steps away and very close to the Hollywood Boardwalk. We enjoyed our vacation. Thank you Manta Ray Inn!! Scott Burlington, MA

Jack it certainly was a pleasure to have you stay with us and we are happy that the accommodations more than met your expectations but I would not call our pool a jaccuzi!

We couldn't wait to get back and when we contacted the Boucher family, they could not have been more cordial. We really love this place.

Thank you again for another wonderful week at the MantaRay Inn. The Boucher Family and the staff always make our family feel very welcome at the MantaRay. The family atmosphere, personalized service, beach front location, comfortable clean rooms and free parking all combine for a great South Florida experience. We look forward to visiting next year

We had an incredibly time at the Manta Ray Inn. It was the perfect location. Right on the beach, just a short walk to the broadwalk too. I liked being a couple blocks from the broadwalk since we had our two year old with us and expect the noise on the broadwalk to continue past her bedtime. The room was... More
