“Excellent location”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Very friendly hotel, all staff go out of their way to please. Good little touches like the cold peppermint faceclothes brought round the pool area and bar staff going round pool/beach asking if we wanted drinks throughout the day. Food was very good morning, noon and night. Wednesday entertainment is the best. We went to the Love bar just outside the hotel on Sunday evening and the locals are very friendly. Rooms very spacious and clean...very comfy beds. Free boat trips are worth going on. The beach and sea are beautiful and great for snorkelling. Would highly recommend this hotel. This was our first trip to Barbados and if we visit Barbados again we will definatley be staying at Mango Bay.

Room Tip: We had standard rooms and they were adequate enough

Really loved this hotel as other people have mentioned the staff are lovely and go out of their way, the cocktails are great as is the food, the entertainment was good one night they had fire eaters and carnival dancers. The water sports included are great, make sure you book the catamaran trip to swim with turtles as this was great you could also go on the hobbycat or waterski, there are rocks about 20 m from the beach which means there are lots of fish to see when your snorkelling we preferred the west coast to the south coast as the water here is nice and calm

From the time we stepped into the lobby, we were greeted warmly by Mandy. Not only that, we were given cold hand towel with the aroma of peppermint along with a nice cold drink. After completing all the incidentals we were given a tour of the resort. There was a mix up with the booking of our room but an upgraded was given at no additional cost. Mandy made certain we were comfortable. Any questions or requests I had were answered and granted in a very professional manner. If Mandy was not there, Marsha was and was just as professional.
Staff was amazing during all 3 meals; seats were pulled out, napkins were placed on your laps, just making sure to make us as comfortable as possible. The meals were very good, well balanced and tasty. This was a very relaxing and pleasant vacation. We would recommend this resort to every one. They do have internet services but limited to certain areas. Overall a great place to stay!!! I miss them already! :-)

After a long flight with no sleep I was hoping to just get to the hotel and relax, we finally arrive and as I step out of the plane I'm hit with this lovely, warm breeze. Unfortunately the weather seemed rather dull compared to what I'd seen online, but being optimistic I carried on and waited until we got there, when the taxi driver told us we had arrived at a. As time as it had just started the rainy season I was a little upset as this was my first holiday abroad in 7 years. But to my surprise throughout the 10 days we stayed there I was met with a beautiful, clear, sunny skies, a lovely room, friendly staff, amazing food, breathtaking beach and cool water-sport activities. It was one of the best holidays I has been on and I would love to go back there again. Apart from a few minor issues I don't think it could have gone any better, even with the standard room I still loved it, I would highly recommend Mango Bay

Room Tip: I would go for a beachfront room with a view that I got to look at, although our room was lovely, th...

we booked for 10 days in this all inclusive hotel and we were not disappointed, the welcome was friendly and relaxed and the rum punch and the frozen menthol hand towels where most welcome. we were taken to our rooms and shown the hotel facilities and our luggage was taken to our rooms, nice service. a very relaxed non pushy hotel staff friendly and helpful. Plenty of sun loungers, if not round the pool on the decking looking over the beach and sea or on the beach. bar staff ready and willing to make you any drink you wished for or could think up. menu changed every day and was well balanced and over all very enjoyable , as with all food some times not to all of our parties taste but that can be the luck of the draw. water sport readily available and helpful staff to get you on your way. the waiter service round the pool and beach was excellent peter was a star . the only dawn side could be the evening entertainment witch could be a little back ground music good but steady except for Wednesday , the singer was a star she was funny and excellent and had every one up dancing, I booked this hotel for a relaxing Barbados caribbean experience and that is just what we got

Just Returned from 2 weeks at Mango Bay. This review will focus on the service and location rather than how much we enjoyed ourselves. That part will be self evident!

During our stay we tested every department in the hotel and they stepped up to the mark every time. Upon arrival we were welcomed with cold towels and colder rum punch by reception. They made sure we were cooled down and relaxed before we even checked in.

We were shown to the standard room we had booked, but this turned out to be on the top floor which would not do because of a major back injury I received recently. There is no elevator in the standard block. However, don't be put off by that - the standard room was very well appointed. This error was down to our rep, who had not passed the info on. Within the hour we had been offered a full one bedroom apartment for a very small additional charge. This was well worth the money and we took it. Very high quality. Full marks to Reception and management.

Huge thank you to Marcia for being so attentive to the detail of our stay; always checking that everything was to our satisfaction.

There were a couple of maintenance problems during the stay, but these could happen to anyone. They were taken care of immediately and to an extremely high standard. Special thanks to Ryan on the maintenance crew. A patient, sweet guy - and extremely competent. In some ways these problems were a good thing for you readers of this review as it should give confidence that this is a professional outfit. Issues resolved in such a way that our stay didn't miss a beat.

The food and beverage staff are legends. Denis, John and Andre behind the bar - As good as it gets. Special mention for Peter. Nothing is too much trouble for this man. Pedro and all the waiting staff worked so hard in serious heat whilst maintaining dignity and sense of humour. Top class service.

The housekeeping staff were effectively invisible, yet the rooms were cleaned and serviced daily. Immaculate,

The location of the hotel is perfect for couples. Close to shops and restaurants, yet intimate with secluded corners. The bar area was sociable and well stocked with excellent drinks. Local and branded. The hotel entertainment was of an extremely high professional standard. If I were to be hypercritical, it does go on just a little longer than suited me, but the quality made that no real problem.

The beach could not be surpassed. Clean, well maintained and well equipped. The water sports staff (Sandy in particular) were top notch. He was knowledgeable, approachable and clearly pitched in around the place. He often helped out with the drinks on the beach, So patient and kind.

Much is made in other reviews about the noise from local bars and the entertainment. This is perhaps true. But we found that it was better to be out and involved in this rather than complain about it. That is local life in Holetown, We were treated with kindness and warm welcome by local citizens at the bars on First Street. They hailed us in the street for days afterwards! Made the holiday actually.

We have travelled widely, but cannot recall a friendlier or more enjoyable holiday experience. Barbados will see us (and my guitar) again.

Room Tip: Pay for the upgrade when you book. the Superior rooms, Condos and Ocean View rooms are well worth th...
