We spent a long weekend at The Manta Ray-- a family get-together for mom's 90th! There were visitors from 7 months to 90 years, from all over the United States (and world!) We did some things "off-campus", but the most enjoyable times were hanging on the beach, at the pool, lounging on the lawn, having a fantastic pot-luck barbeque-- the...

My husband and I went with our two boys. It was super convenient to the beach and other attractions! We loved that the room was very clean and comfortable. The owners/staff were professional and very helpful and would stay here again in the future!

We stayed here because of the reviews on trip advisor. All the positive reviews were accurate. We did not meet the staff right away due to a late flight and check in. Even though the staff works 10am-4pm, they accommodated our late check in. Everyone was friendly and wanted to make sure you had an enjoyable experience. We booked the...

There is not much more to be said that has not been said already. This is a gem of a hotel owned and operated by a great family. We arrived and while walking to the office were greeted by name by Donna. "We've been expecting you!" After taking care of business she toured the room with us, pointing out all...

I read the previous reviews before booking into the Manta Ray and basically all the positive reviews are accurate. Professional staff, courteous service, friendly and respectful guests are all here. Complaints? Well the AC issue mentioned by another critic is fair (no central AC means uneven cooling) but I would not have noticed or cared if I hadn't read that...

I went to the Manta Ray to celebrate my 10 year cancer free anniversary with 2 girlfriends. The one-bedroom suite was clean and the staff were amazing.

Cannot wait for you to return!!! Thomas really enjoys doing is cook outs and the rest of the staff want to make your every wish happen if they can.

Stayed for a week, first time and certainly won't be the last. The inn is extremely clean and in a great location, the beach is one of the nicest around and the staff from the owners to housekeeping was a pleasure.

This was our first stay at the Manta Ray Inn, and we would like to tell you about our week's stay.
