I have left reviews about this Hotel before and at risk of repeating myself I am leaving yet another very positive review.
Again we did not want to return home. All the staff at Mango Bay go out of the way to ensure a perfect holiday. How good is it that the General Manager Shireene pops in to see you when she should be on holiday herself.
Whilst the Menu looks fairly standard he food is delicious and far better than it reads, should you not like anything on offer, given a little notice the kitchen will prepare you something else.
The Bar has no limit to the many & diverse cocktails and branded drinks on offer, even waiter service around the pool.. Lovely cooked breakfasts, with eggs cooked to your liking. Afternoon tea, sandwiches & cake at 4.00pm then more food in the evening - Thank goodness they only weigh the cases when you go home.
The standards of cleanliness & housekeeping are excellent, the beds are comfy - it is the only Hotel that I do not bring my own pillow to. Everything is catered for, from a clothes horse to an iron & ironing board.
Shampoo, conditioner, bath gel & body lotion are provided as are bath robes.
If you have a problem it is sorted immediately, the only comment being "Why did you not ask sooner".
There are plenty of sunbeds & umbrellas, the beach is clean and you can walk along it in either direction and a walk way has been built to take you along the sea front towards Almond Beach Club.
Complimentary trips & water sports are available, , we particularly enjoyed the Hobie Cat.
There was even a invitation to join Peter Odle (the Hotel Owner) in his box at Kensington Oval Horse Races which all participants hugely enjoyed.
Entertainment could be improved - I can never understand why a DJ will keep playing the same tracks to an empty floor and a non participating audience, however one night we were treated to a group of 3 ladies who certainly could sing and went down a storm.
Just outside the Hotel there is Lexi's Piano Bar, various good restaurants and Ragamuffins where on a Sunday Night there is a Drag Show - Manikins in Motion, featuring Diva Alexander & 2 friends - this is very popular and not to be missed. Book it early on line
Also in Holetown there are shops within walking distance, a Supermarket, Duty Free etc.. The Hotel has a small shop which stocks sun cream, gifts, stamps etc.
A lovely small Hotel with delightful staff on a mission to make your holiday enjoyable.
I nearly forgot the Spa, where you get the best manicure ever.
Lots of repeat guests - that says it all!
Will we be back? We certainly will!
