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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our second visit to the Manta Ray Inn. We are an 85 and 80 year old couple, and we are not experienced travelers, so we hope for an easy, enjoyable experience each year. The location on the beach is fantastic, our room was spotless (something that is very important to us) and very well equipped, the facilities... More

The Manta Ray is situated right on the Hollywood beach and the view is gorgeous. You can literally step out of your room, take a few steps, and be on the beach. Rooms are scrupulously cleaned and the people who work there are just the best. They are friendly and very helpful. We were in the area visiting friends and... More
