Guest Feedback Always Welcome

It is always wonderful to hear from guests who have stayed with us and enjoyed their stay.  We even enjoy hearing from guests who stayed with us and who offer constructive criticisms of things that we could do to improve.  Here are three recent letters to us that we want to share with you.

“Dear Bill, Jan & Detlef,

Thank you very much for the wonderful time and the perfect honeymoon we had with you at Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers. We enjoyed our stay so much and thank you once again for your efforts.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year 2013.

We are looking forward to meeting you again at the “Boot” in Düsseldorf.

With warmest regards,

Margret & Erich Rohn (from Austria) “

“Hi Bill, We have just arrived back in Scotland after our stay with you at Manta Ray Bay. You, no doubt, receive many messages of appreciation from guests but Christine and I would like to add one more. We had a wonderful time. The accommodation was very comfortable; the facilities well thought out; the diving (and for Christine snorkeling trips) was very well organized, and the staff were superb. It really was like being one of the family. I’d like to thank you and Patricia for diving with me; Jan for the great job he does organizing the dive team; and the dive boys who were quite simply superb. Josie was really attentive to my special dietary needs and nothing was too much trouble for the restaurant staff. Also Sammir for the airport shuttles in the middle of the night. Christine also thought the massage she enjoyed was the best ever. All in all it was the friendliest place we’ve been to for some time – and we travel a fair bit. So, thanks again to the whole team!

Mike and Chrstine Pacione.”

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say I really enjoyed my brief stay at your resort.  I was on a rush when leaving and didn’t get to fill out your survey.  I was looking at some photos and remembered that Helen and Samantha were really great on the kayaking trip.  I’ve attached a few photos if you don’t mind forwarding to Sammie (first is of her in traditional attire and second is a great picture she took of us in the mangrove forest)…

  1. We the staff at Manta Ray Bay Resort do our very best to ensure our guests have the best vacation they can possibly have. It is always a pleasure to hear from our guests. Here is two of our guest’s testimony:


    We’re back home now after our two week, fun filled vacation. I just wanted to let you and your staff know that we had a fantastic time at Manta Ray Bay. World class diving and accommodations were only topped by world class service. Thank you for making our vacation a memory of a lifetime.

    I only wish I had the chance to meet and dive with you Bill. Next time!

    Darrell and Nancy Hejde

We stayed at the hotel and dove with Manta Ray divers in early December 2017. The hotel is very comfortable, well run and staffed with wonderful employees. During our visit my wife came down with an illness and the consideration and support from the hotel and dive staff could not have been more

The staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. Food is good, (worth upgrading to include all meals). Diving is good more

The best place to stay in Yap. The resort is really nice and clean, the scuba diving is great, and the docked ship that houses the bar, restaurant, and movie screen is very cool. I really enjoyed my stay more

Offers one of the best accommodation service. It also has a uniquely designed restaurant.

The whole place centers around the scuba diving operation. Probably better to find somewhere else if you're not a diver. The dive operation was generally good, but a little too laid back - schedules weren't always clear, and sometimes would change without any notice. Sometimes it was hard to tell if this was really because of changing tides/weather or because of the island pace of life. Pizza is a surprisingly good option at the more
