“paradise but not perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2011

I stayed week before Easter. Only my wife and I and one other couple with two delitefull teenage boys. If you are looking for nite life this is not your place. Peacefull, relaxing, with lots of daytime activities to occupy your time. Fishing witch we did not do but the the man who did seemed pleased, sailing any of the four they have, snorkling with a guide or right off your cabana, or tours of the mangroves and local historical points. They feed you excellently and cater to individual quirks such as my dislike for shrimp resuting in Gabby the cook substituting lobster in my meals. Meals are eaten with the owners giving it the feel of being on a really small cruise ship with the captain and the same small group of people. Should conversation lag just ask Terry or Patrice about their round the world oddessy. All the cabanas are identicle so its just a matter of how close to the dinning room you want to be. Now the knocks, The self service bar had no whiskey, brandy, or unflavored rum, vodka gin and a wonderful local beer, but I would loved to have whipped up some cool tropical drinks but for the whole week I never saw any fruit juices. Lots of fresh fruit some right the tree but no juice to drink.The rooms were clean but looked a bit tired. Bring lots of bug spray as the no'seeums will eat you up if leave the breeze along the water.

Mango Creek Lodge is a great place to relax while enjoying diving, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking or fishing. It has the quiet ambiance that my wife and I were looking for. Terry and his staff are always available to assist you in any activity you are ready to try. We particularly enjoyed the friendliness of Terry and his staff. They made us feel like family, almost immediately. The food was terrific, with a hint of island flavor in all of wonderful presentations. The accommodations were clean and nicely decorated. The composting toilets didn't pose any problems, but did take some getting used to, especially the step up.
We recommend a stay at Mango Creek Lodge to anyone who is not interested in crowds and noisy night life.

Bring deet for the no-see-ums or they WILL bite you and make you itch! Especially if there is no breeze.

We found Mango Creek Lodge on the internet and knew we had found our vacation spot!

We were greeted by the owners, Terry and Patrice so warmly. We felt at home right away. They and their staff were very friendly, hospitable and made sure we were settled in and comfortable.

Our cabana was beautifully decorated, open and airy. It had a fantastic front porch right on the water - complete with a hammock (which is where I spent most of my vacation!).

The food was out of this world!!! My husband did some fishing and said it was absolutely wonderful and peaceful. We had a fantastic time and will return next year!

We have found a little paradise away from home!

Thank you Mango Creek!!!

Early Monday we left for our trip to Mango Creek Lodge. We arrived at Oak Ridge with the rest of our group to travel to Port Royal by boat. Because the wind had been blowing steady from the East for several days, the seas were up. However, Terry brought his large sport fishing boat to transport us more comfortably to the lodge through the rough seas. He is an outstanding captain with a wealth of knowledge of the area. The sun was bright and the water deep blue so it was a glorious day. After checking into the lodge,we took a boat tour with a history lesson on the area with Terry and learned much about the early pirate days. Later, we gathered for a hearty lunch of hamburgers and sides with a to die for cookie in the restaurant and planned on how to spend the rest of the day. A large group of us decided to go to Anne Jennings Browne’s home site at Fort Frederick Key while some took kayaks out to the Cow and Calf cays. We enjoyed hiking through the bush and are still in awe of Anne Jennings staying alone out here for years. The views are just amazing. After our excursions, we relaxed as the sun went behind the hills and our hosts Terry and Patrice joined us to enjoy the view while their staff prepared our dinner. Terry and his staff served a tasty jerk chicken dinner with plenty of tasty side dishes and desert of fresh coconut pie. Yummy! After such busy day we decided to skip a movie (Terry and Patrice have a large selection) and go back to our lodging to relax and enjoy the quiet and the stars. Some folks stayed in cabins over the water others stayed in the lodge but they were all lovely with wonderful carved wood details.
The next morning after a hearty breakfast of pineapple pancakes and Jimmy Dean sausage fresh fruit with freshly brewed coffee and fresh orange juice, we prepared for our mangrove tour and Pigeon Key snorkeling trip. The wind and seas calmed and the sun was shining in a deep blue sky…Perfect! The ride to Pigeon key was fun and we had to take three of the skiffs to accommodate all thirteen of us. It was one of our friends birthday and we planned a picnic lunch on Pigeon Cay complete with champagne and a surprise birthday cake compliments of Mango Creek Lodge. One of the kitchen staff even went with us to help set up and serve! Could you ask for more! One of the boat staff caught a large fish off the beach and several of the guys in the party tried their hands at salt water fly fishing. The staff took us out in the boats to snorkel so we wouldn’t have to swim against the current. That was really nice and made the snorkeling even better.
After our wonderful lunch of curry chicken and salad we enjoyed cake and champagne on the beach. It doesn’t get much better than that…..ever! We relaxed and swam but we eventually had to prepare for our return to Port Royal and then Oak Ridge. We all wished we could have stayed yet another night at Mango Creek and some of our group were already planning to return for another even longer stay. You really have a wonderful, memorable trip when you go to Mango Creek Lodge. Terry, Patrice and their staff provide an excellent experience, with attention to detail in an exceptional environment. I can’t thank them enough.

It was a wonderful return to Mango Creek Lodge, a favorite place for us. Everything was superb: from meet and greet, location, accommodation, food and the enjoyment of the most interesting historical part of Roatan Island. Terry is the most gracious host and a great guide with his extensive knowledge about the history of the whole region: we could listen to him for hours...
Thank you Terry and Pat for another unforgettable experience at Mango Creek. We look forward to our return.

We spent a week with friends at Mango Creek Lodge and enjoyed every minute of it. Our days were filled with snorkeling, kayaking, and fishing. Our fishing guide Michael was very skilled and knowledgeable. We caught mackerel, snook, and big barracuda! One day we went on the boat to Pigeon Cay to snorkel and picnic. One of the highlights was getting there-the scenery with the mountains in the background and the crystal clear water is breathtaking. At night we enjoyed cocktails on top of the boathouse to watch sunset. The food was terrific and we especially enjoyed Lobster night! The staff at Mango Creek Lodge go out of there way to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. This is truly a paradise for those that love the water.

We had a wonderful time at the Mango Creek Lodge! Our charming cabana right on the water was amazing, and listening to the lapping waves at night was delightful. Wonderful food was provided by their great cook, who also gives amazing massages! Terry, Patrice, and their staff were friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable of the areas natural wonders. They took us snorkeling, set up our easy cycle kayaks, arranged fly-fishing (for bone fish), and scuba diving with Leif (a most excellent master dive instructor).They all love their piece of paradise and it shows!. The best part is that the reef and all the super fish, sharks, rays, etc are just about a 3 minute kayak from their lodge. Pristine, beautiful, and untarnished, especially compared with the more developed west end of Roatan. Highly recommend Mango Creek!!
