Fodor's Review

Canadians Donna and Dwayne Boucher run this immaculate, affordable circa 1940s, two-story complex of apartment units that sits right on the beach. The units have pale-pink tile in downstairs rooms and moss-green carpet in upstairs rooms, offering casual, comfortable beachfront accommodations with wicker or rattan furnishings, cable TV, free Wi-Fi, and off-street parking. Kitchens are equipped with microwaves, pots, pans, and serving utensils. One-bedroom apartments have

marble shower stalls, and two-bedroom units also have tubs. Manta Ray guests have access to the pool next door at the Enchanted Isle time-share.

Mothers Day at the Manta Ray

Just returned from my first visit to the Manta Ray. The view of the beach and ocean were very nice. The rooms are clean and nice,, nothing fancy. It is spacious having a living room, kitchen, etc. The bathroom was a bit small. The highlight is the view of the beach and also it is very reasonably priced. It is a nice relaxing, low key motel and I would stay there again. The staff is friendly and accomodating. Parking is on site and there

is a pool next door. The pool is nice but the condo the pool is at needs some upkeep.

Tranquility in a crowd

We have stayed at Manta Ray several times now and have never been disappointed. The hosts are wonderful and make you feel at home. The view is amazing and the facilities are always clean and welcoming. A genuine find not often found these days. Dan and Delores Ward.....WV
