Well where will I start?
Don't get me wrong this was a decent enough place to stay in.The weather,scenery and friendliness of the staff made this a reasonable holiday,all the staff that is excluding the owner Brett!!
The only time he was ever friendly was when he was looking you to spend your money at the bar to play his precious Sloshball!Whats Sloshball?
Well Sloshball is like Rounders or Baseball only you use a football and kick the ball instead of using a bat. The reason he was ever so nice was because these nights the Fiji experience group arrived. Let me explain in more detail.
1.Drunken group playiny sloshball shouting and yelling.
2.Fiji experince group walk by and see people shouting,yelling and laughing at each other
3.Fiji experience group book extra nights in Mango bay because they think its such a cool,happy place!!
4.Smug owner Brett very happy!!
That was his masterplan all along,which annoyingly enough did work sometimes.What annoyed me was he used us as guinea pigs to lure in his prey!You didn;t have to play of course but Brett made sure he made you feel like a loser for not.
If all that wasn't bad enough, the night we left we were saying our goodbyes to all of our friends we met,who were all lovely people by the way!you know who you are.Brett obviously seen us,but instead of coming over to say his goodbyes he took his precious wife crystal to bed.Honestly, I was disgusted! We stayed in this resort for numerous nights,spent alot of money and didn't even get a goodbye!That just summed it all up for me.
Alot of people told me the except same about Brett without me even mentioning my side of things,which speaks for itself really!
So if you are considering going to Mango Bay,you will meet alot of wonderful people including Jack the musician,Nelson,Joe the barman and Junior(crazy),but I warn you do be prepared for Brett and his con-artist skills!
1.4% charge on credit card(I had to pay an extra $200 on top of my bill,raging!)
2.No ATMs at resort
3.Bring as much alcohol with you as possible as a jug of spirits costs $45 for stupid Sloshball.Where as you can buy a bottle of vodka in the local town for that price.
P.S Brett is so bloody competitive when playing his "FUN" games,so much so he actualy shouted at some of the guests for not putting in an effort!!!Yes,he was being serious.Your not on holiday to be serious.Also he tells you when you leave to praise the resort on this site!!!!
