I'm one of the smokers that Mark B was complaining about. He really didn't have a complaint cause after I was informed of his complaint I always checked to see if he was out on his balcony before I lit up & if so I did go away from my door unless it was raining. Please don't let his review... More

This review is no different than our past 8 reviews of The MantaRay Inn, in which we raved about this small gem of South Florida. This was our 9th annual winter vacation/stay at The MantaRay and our stay this time was once again was perfect (except for some weather issues, which unfortunately is beyond the control of the staff!).

So conflicted about this review and wish we could give it a higher rating, but there are long term residents who stay there and chain smoke and if the weather is at all inclement, they smoke outside their room (which is downstairs and carries). I spoke with the owner about it and she was quite nice but couldn't solve the... More

We so appreciate your review in regard to our property. We definitely try to solve every problem to the best of our ability and we do not have ash trays out side of each apartment. All of our apartments are non-smoking and we have a designated smokers table on our very large patio but when it is pouring rain our... More

My husband and my adult daughter and I stayed at the Manta Ray Inn from December 31st through January 3rd. The original plan was not to arrive until January 1st as we were going to a concert in Sunrise. Due to a very bad experience with Allegiant airlines we arrived too late to attend the concert. Donna's son Thomas returned... More

I previously stayed at Manta Ray Inn beginning in 2006 through 2010 and so I was very familiar with the facility and the ownership/management. I spent Winters and vacations in Hollywood Beach as I was investigating the area to purchase my first condo.

If you want to roll out of your bed and be directly on the beach, Manta Ray Inn is the place for you. It is clean,family friendly, and excellent in all aspects of hospitality. Thomas is a top notch manager. The beach is not crowded and the broadwalk is close for walking, jogging or bike riding.

We have been coming to the Manta Ray Inn for six years. We've tried other places on Hollywood Beach, but always come back to the Manta Ray.
