Manta Ray was everything we could have hoped for!. Quiet, relaxing, right (and I mean RIGHT) on the beach !!! This was definately the perfect place for a quiet week to regenerate. And the WiFi was a bonus.

We (two couples) were going to visit Hollywood and Ft. Lauderdale for
a quick overnight trip. I read the reviews of Manta Ray and was impressed with the description. I called that morning for an arrival in about three hours, hoping they had something available. Luckily our trip was mid-week, off-season and in the summer so they had a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom oceanfront available for us. The rate was $189 a night - which is a great price since we were splitting the cost with another couple. What a pleasant surprise. Thomas (the owner's son?) greeted us in the office, registered us and then escorted us to our 2nd floor room (what a great view) to make sure everything was in good order. When he noticed that the bed in the second guest room had not been pushed together to make one large bed (since we are a couple) he immediately sent his maintenance guy to remedy the situation. The room is great - very clean with a full kitchen. Both bathrooms appear to be recently renovated and were spotless. I can easily see families staying here for a week or more. The hotel is right on the beach and has all kinds of beach amenities available for use by the hotel guests (beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, etc.). There is even a gas grill and outdoor tables. We are planning to make another trip to explore Hollywood and will definitely stay at
the Manta Ray again.

I wanted to reward my son for graduating from college and for his acceptance into med school. I decided to fly my family of five to Florida for a week. We love the Hollywood area as it has been a favorite spot to stay for years but we have never stayed at the Manta Ray until now. We stayed in room 201, a two bed apartment with an excellent view of the ocean. The apartment was well decorated and cozy. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The beach was outstanding. In fact we went to South Beach only to be dissappointed, it did not hold a candle to Manta Ray's beach. We enjoyed having a reserved parking space. We were close enough to the Broadwalk we did not have to move the car. This is our new home in Hollywood.

If you want to see what you are getting visit their web page --- what you see is what you get. The location is excellent as it is located off the broadwalk, thereby very quiet—yet close enough to walk to all amenities. If you plan to use the kitchen facilities and do not have a car the convenience stores within walking distance do not offer much selection. The restaurants along the broadwalk provided a good selection of food however don’t overlook the restaurants along the inter waterway ---especially the bakery. We found it interesting that from the minute you arrive everyone knows you are the newcomers. Many guests have been coming to the MantaRay for years which in itself speaks for the location and friendliness of this hotel.

My wife and I stayed at the Manta Ray for 4 days during a recent business trip to Florida. We booked it because it was right on the beach and had gotten an excellent rating in TripAdvisor. We weren't disappointed. The suite was clean, large and had a refrigerator, bar, TV and nice beds. The only room problem we had was the shower, which sprayed out limply even at the highest setting.
The surf was rough after our first day, because a tropical storm was passing over the Carribean, but that was bad luck--the beach was wonderful. The hotel was close to downtown Hollywood, where we needed to be, and easy to find. It doesn't have it's own pool, but shares one with the hotel behind it, and we swam there quite a bit. Nobody asked for ID at the pool--it's a laid-back area.
The hotel does have a few problems. There's nobody there at night, so if there's a problem you have to use a phone. We did so our second night, when we came back to the hotel and somebody was parked in our assigned space. The hotel was full, and no other spaces were open. So I called Thomas, the manager, and he came over promptly and fixed the problem, but it was still a nuisance. More seriously, the man who changes the beds came over twice while we were on the beach in the morning and HADN'T yet put out our "ready to clean" sign. The first time he came in my wallet and my wife's purse were in clear view on the bed. Nothing was missing but I was quite annoyed.
Since the business we came down to take care of was extremely stressful, we needed some relaxation to balance it out, and picked the right place. These small, family run beach hotels may not be around too much longer in areas that have been "discovered" by big developers, so we should enjoy them while they are here!
