We stayed a week at Manta Ray Bay resort and we had a wonderful time! first of all we make a mistake with our travel dates, we did arrive at 2.am instead of 2 pm the next day, but that was not a problem, they had a room ready for us. We had a very welcome arrival with some info...

This review is a bit second hand but informational. I had set up a trip for my wife and I and two other couples. Everything was great until a SNAFU with the airlines caused my wife and I to miss the only plane to Yap via Guam for the week (thanks Hawaiian Air and United). This left the other two...

Three story hotel with no elevator. Great staff. Be sure to get an ocean view room. Great dive shop on site with good boats. Be sure to eat at the Menu restaurant on site, it's an anchored sailing ship.

.My wife and I, my son and his partner, and my niece spent a week at the Manta Ray Bay Resort focused on scuba diving. One, to get certified, another for first dives after certification and two of us to enjoy diving with family and exploring the wonderful sites along the reef. The Yap Divers and the resort staff made...

This hotel has charm and the friendliest staff ! They are sincere and truly want you're experience to be good. The check in process is so considerate to the traveler as the hour you get in is the wee hours of the morning. The rooms are showing a bit of wear and tear but clean and comfortable. The ocean side...

It's not five star luxury but the rooms are huge and well appointed. The staff is what stands out about this place, as everybody is exceptionally friendly and they all make a point of addressing you by name. The food is adequate but not great. There's a limited menu for lunch and dinner and because Yap is so remote, they...

Rooms were beautiful, large and comfortable, staff was very friendly and helpful and food was great. Unfortunately, we missed out on 3 days of our stay due to flight problems. But the days we were there were enchanting. Missed my usual sun time because the weather was unseasonably cool and rainy. Loved the restaurant attached to the resort

Stayed here during a week long trip of diving. The hotel is nice, spa was really great and very affordable. You have all your meals on a ship anchored out front. While charming at first, turned annoying as the week went on. The food was palatable, any fresh fish was amazing. If I was here for 3 days I would...

My stay on Yap could not have been more incredible and I credit Manta Ray Bay Resort for most of that! They have all you need at the hotel, but are close to other options if you want to branch out. The rooms were very comfortable and modern with all the amenities one could want. The staff is incredible and...
