This was our first visit, we chose this hotel because of the Trip Advisor reviews and they were correct. We found the room very clean and homey. We were right on the beach, literally. Our room on the first floor was the closest one to the beach. The water is really pretty at Hollywood Beach. It is a hike to... More

Sadly, we were only able to stay one night on our way south. However, this was long enough to form an opinion. Nice staff, thoughtful touches, clean and great location on the beach. I only hope that they stay and don't sell out to some giant high rise, as we'd love to come back some day for a longer stay!

This was our first visit to the Manta Ray and hopefully will be the first of many more to come. We were pleasantly surprised to find this homey location further enough away from the broadwalk to be quiet, but close enough to walk there. We had a second floor apartment with an excellent view. Almost every room has a great... More

We've just spent another 3 weeks at the Manta Ray Inn and loved it once again! The Owners and staff really make you feel at home and keep the premises and apartments very clean. Being situated right on the beach, you don' have far to go to unwind and you also have access to a heated pool just a few... More

It is always so much fun when you arrive and it was a special treat for you to bring more of your family with you this tie. Perhaps you should make it an annual family reunion type place so all of your family can enjoy it!! Please stay in touch and hope to see you soon. More

Our fourth stay at Manta Ray Inn and once again everything exceeded out expectations. Beach is perfect, apartment is clean and well-furnished, staff is competent and friendly, Broadwalk is close with all the restaurants and tempting activities. We'll be back again next year. It's our home away from the cold north.

The Manta Ray was recommended by another inn owner who couldn't accomodate our request. What a little gem. Beautiful beachfront units that are immaculate and well maintained. We arrived when they were having a pizza party for two of the families who were leaving and had been there for weeks. Everyone was friendly and helpful and welcoming. Just sorry we... More

This was our first visit to the Manta Ray but won't be our last. We had read the reviews on Trip Advisor before renting which all gave it 5 stars. Now we know why. Perfect location for quiet time but close enough to the broadwalk for dining/entertainment. Very clean and well maintained. Just steps to the ocean with easy access... More

We enjoyed our 7th trip to the Manta ray. It is the best. Clean, friendly and the staff are great. The owners are a great family that make sure all is done for to make your holiday memorable. The board walk is a short walk away with shops and restaurants. There are BQs and happy hours.
