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.”

“Bill,

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)…
Best,
Moon

Beautiful resort and location, small and quaint with very attentive service from wonderful staff who were extremely friendly and helpful, and knew everyone's name (travelled with a group of 20 people) within the first day. Yap Divers staff were amazing, we were even offered hot tea during our surface intervals with some delicious snacks, and they ensured we had the best possible dive experience on each dive. I would return to this gorgeous island and absolutely stay at Manta Bay Resort again, it's well worth the trip!read more

MantaRayBay Resort, is THE dive resort. It is so obvious that this place was designed for divers, BY divers. The concept that all of the guests are part of the resort family seems to be the cornerstone of MRB Resort. The dive service is top notch; the wait staff spot-on, the resort staff super friendly and attentive. The dive sites are great, especially the southern walls, and of course the cleaning stations visited so often by the Manta Rays. I have gone scuba diving all over western Asia and the Caribbean, and MRB Resort is at the top!read more

Bill and his family run a great dive resort, rooms are spacious and comfortable. Restaurant and bar provide good range of food and drink. Bill and his dive guides know the reef intimately and the diving is spectacular. Bill and his family make for a very friendly and rewarding experience in Yap.read more

We were from 11.08 to 18.08 at the Manta Ray Bay resort and had unforgettable days there 😍In total we made 12 dives with wonderful encounters. Highlights were, of course, the manta rays in the Goofnuw Channel and many white tip reef sharks in the Shark City 🦈 But also we saw eagle rays, turtles 🐢 and buffalo head parrotfish. The hotel is beautiful and the whole team does a great job there. The food on the ship Mnuw, as well as the home-brewed beer are excellent. Thank you again to the whole team of Manta Ray Bay Resort and Yap Divers 👏🏼We also did a one-day land tour to explore the many beautiful places of this unique island. The beach is like in paradise🏝, stone money and relics from the second world war very worth to see! You find there also culturally typical houses with different meaning and use! It would be nice if more visitors would come to this great island and appreciate the great work that is done there! Anyway, we really enjoyed it and would come back anytime 🙏🏻✌🏼read more

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 better.read 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 here.read more

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 restaurant.read more
