Mango Bay vs. Mahoe Bay Villas

We are trying to decide whether to stay in a two bedroom villa on the beach at Mango Bay or a Mahoe Bay Villa off the beach, but with a pool.

We really love snorkeling and are assuming it is the same off either beach??

Also, is one area more private and quiet?

Mahoe Bay is the actual name of the "Bay" on which there is a community of upscale private homes and villas many, if not all, of which are available for rent. These are commonly referred to as the "villas at Mahoe Bay".

"Mango Bay" is the name of a "resort" which is located on the southern end of Mahoe Bay (next to the residential area). For all practical purposes it's on the same beach as the privately owned villas.

The "Mahoe Bay Villas" are all fairly large multiple bedroom privately owned upscale villas. They afford you more room and better furnishings & accomodations. Although there are similarities in room design and layout they are all custom built to meet the owners' specifications.

The "units" at Mango Bay are much smaller and more simply furnished. This place was originally designed to be a resort and while some units are larger than others they are "typical" hotel type accomodations.

Mahoe Bay doesn't get very crowded so it should feel "private & quiet" no matter if you stay in one of the villas or at the "resort".

Nice new avatar, CaribSurfer.

I would further note that the beach directly in front of Mango Bay is not as nice as the beach directly in front of most of the villas, but they are so close together that it really is of little consequence. Really it is a matter of budget.

Thanks for the input! Decided on Adagio Villa as it looks awesome and the owner Brian couldn't be nicer or more helpful. Now we just have to get through another Minnesota winter...then onto VG!

As always we so appreciate all the TA knowledge!

Hope you had a great time at Adagio - always trying to keep the villa fully occupied and glad to help anyone escape cold winters - cheers Brian
