We had previously looked around Mango Bay during another stay in Barbados so knew a bit about the hotel before we booked.
It is a good three star hotel and it doesn't pretend to be a five star or charge five star prices. All the public areas were very clean and the pool was spotless. We could always get a sun bed but the ones on the beach often were taken early in the morning. We booked a Superior Pool View room to avoid some of the noise that the standard rooms can experience from the nearby bars. It had good air con, ceiling fan and the bathroom was very nice with a full range of toiletries.
Some people have said the portion sizes in the restaurant are small but I didn't find this and often had to miss out a course at dinner. The menus were varied with good choice. Service in the restaurant was generally good but could be a bit haphazard at breakfast, when I think that the staff were sometimes a bit overstretched. All the staff without exception were friendly and helpful. The manageress deserves a special mention as one of the friendliest and accessible I have ever come across.
The only negative was that for the first time I got some mosquito bites. Not the hotels fault as we were a bit complacent about using repellent for the first couple of days.
