Stayed at the Manta Ray based on its first place ranking on this site. It is hard to criticize such a nice peaceful place.
The pros to staying here are
On the beach with wonderful view.
Parking and internet are included in rate.
10 minute walk to boardwalk
No central air. Unit in bedroom only.
No food, restaurants, vending or shop close by
No refunds on deposits.
Short office hours.
We never really got to know anyone there, but I am sure they were nice. This is a great place for couples that want to buy their own food and beverages and hang out at the beach for days with no commotion of staying in a larger hotel.
