I´ve already been twice to Manta Ray Bay and hope to keep going back. It´s a small, laid-back hotel but with great care given to make the rooms comfy and beautiful, amenities are nice, and the owner´s family and staff couldn´t be more kind or caring - a great bonus when you arrive from usually long trips to get to Yap. Beyond the rooms, the restaurant and on-site beer brewery are a must, and the dives are certainly among the best in the planet and dive staff is knowledgeable of the local wildife and caring about your safety. Larger dive businesses should get to know this little jewel and kearn about how to make customers want to keep coming back!

Having heard absolute horror stories about the accommoddation in FSM we were pleasantly suprised by the Manta Ray Bay Hotel. The rooms were very good, and the restaurant served absolutely fabulous cocktails (shame about the terrible food!) It has also opened a very nice spa which super massages! The diving was very well organised, with new boats and equipment, unlike our experience at Chuuk!

Resort is really making a stretch here. The rooms are well decorated and the service by the staff is excellent. Everyone greets you by name and treats you wondefully. However, the food at Mnuw is terrible, the "infinity" pool is best suited for kids and at the cost of over $200 per room why is there a t.v. with no cable and wifi access that you must pay for by the hour. The best thing about this place are the dive instructors. My suggestion, stay at Pathways and head over for a few dives, not worth the extra cash for some nice linens.

I think that you can actually see the end of the earth from the 3rd floor of the Mnuw.
Rooms are modern and comfortable, pretty well maintained. No night life in Yap. Few other places to eat, other than Oasis and Trader Ridge across the street. Enjoyed Scuba Diving and Snorkeling with Manta Divers. Well run on site dive center.

When I decided to book my trip to Yap, it was to realise a dream. Dive with the mindblowing Manta Rays! And the dream came true thanks to a the Manta Ray Bay Hotel team. I had 10 days booked and was hoping that everything would be spot on... Expectations exceeded I would say!! After only 4 days there, it was already like being on a trip with old time friends... These guys really know how to make you feel like you are part of it! The rooms are very spacious, bright and always clean. The swimming pool was a great place where to relax and mingle with other visitors. Meals are served on a boat-restaurant Mnuw that gives you an amazing view. You can even enjoy an outdoor movie on a huge white board (screen) placed on the mast. Hats off to Jan, Andrew, Julie, Daniel, Bill and all the staff. I hope they will keep the dream going! They will definitely see me again on the fantastic Mnuw sipping their homemade beers!
