“Plenty of sun beds!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

Just returned after an excellent week . A big thank you to all staff for making efforts to please. Particularly the water sports team. Sandy with the Hobie went out of his way to ensure maximum enjoyment .Peter and Tyrone the water ski drivers were excellent teachers . Pedro - in the restaurant with the BIG --------- smile ! This small hotel really tics all the boxes . Lovely beach. Sea view rooms with balcony right on the beach. Restaurant view unsurpassed . Bar service and drinks excellent.Peter the beach / pool drinks waiter always seemed to know when thirst approached . Waitress service for most meals- including lunches was very good ( I prefer this to buffets ) . I would say that some meals sounded a bit better on the menu than reality but the fish dishes were consistently delicious . Marcia and the reception staff were helpful and we had no disappointments . Well done .

We have just returned from a week at the lovely Mango Bay hotel and had a wonderful experience there. Everything from the rooms to the setting of the hotels pools, bar, restaurant and location right on the beach where you can hear the sound of the waves lapping up against the shore while you are eating was fantastic. All of the staff were very friendly and happy to help or serve, and the head chef can not only cook a huge range of interesting and varied food (even some things off of the menu if you asked) has a great voice who was invited to sing along with some of the live groups who entertained us every night.
A fantastic hotel to spend a week or two at and we will definitely look to be back for another dose of this wonderful place as soon as we can.

Just returned from two glorious weeks at Mango Bay. From checking in onwards everything was effortless. In particular, Mandy who checked us in was so helpful and made us feel very welcome. Our room was in a lovely position,good size, clean and very comfortable. There were always plenty of sunbeds available. We found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful. In particular, Anthony the General Manager, Peter who served us round the pool, Marcia in Customer Services, Dennis behind the bar, Pedro and Tanya in the restaurant. All the waiters and waitresses were very attentive. This was our fourth visit to Mango Bay, the last being 16 years ago, and we enjoyed it as much this time as we did before.maybe even better. If you want a relaxing holiday this is the place to choose.

Room Tip: The superior rooms are a good size and overlook the gardens and pool.

Just returned from a wonderful stay at Mango Bay. The hotel is small and very friendly, set within lovely gardens leading down to the white sandy beach. Sun beds and parasols are always available. There are lots of all inclusive water sports to enjoy, the catamaran trip was great, snorkelling up close to the turtles and drinking plenty of rum on the way back!
The food is lovely, a nice mix of a la carte and buffet with plenty of choice, nice wines and regular visits from the chef asking if everything was okay and if there was anything we specifically wanted, the restaurant staff were attentive and friendly (bar one young lady who despite our best efforts, would not crack a smile). Fabulous cocktails are served by the friendly bar staff and also brought out to you on the beach by the charming Peter, what a lovely man he is. The evening entertainment is mainly different groups with some good vocalists, all fairly low key however the hotel is right in Holetown where there are some busy bars if you want to liven things up a bit.
The lovely customer services manager Marcia embraced us all as we said our sad goodbyes, but we will definitely be returning again soon. Try it, you won't regret it!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the bars can be a bit noisy at times, didnt worry us as we are not early to bed people...

Perfect! From booking in onwards this hotel was faultless. Great size room, clean and, well, perfect. The restaurant was impressive, menus including an interesting combination of local and international cuisine and flavours, with excellent service. Same again for lunch, and a breakfast to suit any taste. The cocktail menu was good, but we still cannot decide which one was the best. Location, well that was perfect too!

The best test is whether you want to go back, the answer is that this hotel, location and experience is such that you will return.

Any downside? The dress code is a very good idea, a pity some didn't stick to it. As elsewhere there are those who think they can claim title to a beach lounger. But hey, no worries, there was always somewhere lovely to sit and chill. It would take a major event to spoil the experience this place is really that good.

So back to the major question, the cocktail, coconut cooler, or pain killer? We'll just have to go back to work that one out!

Room was quite small, television not working, continues noise till 3 in the morning, food not very good, served cold most of the time, we always stay at Crystal Cove which is an amazing Hotel, had a change this year, wish I had not. I think the new manager is not as good as the last one... Sorry, my opinion very, very poor Hotel.

Dear Sheila M,
Thank you for sharing this review of your Mango Bay holiday experience!

At Mango Bay we welcome all guest feedback, as guest satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us. We are dedicated to providing our guests with exemplary service and an exceptional holiday experience. Although we encourage guest feedback, we do find it necessary to clarify any statements which may mislead our current or potential guests.

Many sites, companies and literature which advertise or mention Mango Bay make it clear that there are businesses close to the hotel, that use music to entertain patrons until early in the morning, as a result guests are aware of the music before they arrive and when making a reservation to stay with us. Please keep in mind that visitors who come to our shores all have different ideas of what they would like to experience in Barbados.

We sincerely apologize for the inconveniences you experienced at our on-property restaurant, Julian’s. We have taken your comments very seriously as we continuously make changes to our menu selections, and on how we maintain our food temperatures.

Although this trip did not exceed your expectations, we truly hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to Mango Bay in the future!

Kind Regards,
Anthony Johnson
Director of Operations

This hotel has everything going for it, the location is second to none, right on the beach and near shops and nightlife if you need that. The staff are friendly, attentive and always ask if you are enjoying your stay. Peter is a star and has time for everyone. Nice touches like having beach towels changed every day without having to ask and free activities such as a glass bottomed boat trip were much appreciated. Food is tasty, nicely presented and locally influenced, Bajan spices add a kick to the fresh fish and other main dishes. The only enhancements I would like to see are more power sockets in the rooms to avoid over- loading the extension leads and enabling charging of laptops etc without having to unplug lamps! Wifi speed was also variable and needs to be boosted to cover the different areas and cope with the number of users. To have an ocean front room was the icing on the cake, that view morning and night was simply the best.
