My girlfriend and I stayed at Mango Bay for 2 weeks in mid September and enjoyed an amazing holiday.
When choosing a hotel we looked for somewhere relaxing by day with good food, drink and service with the opportunity to venture out if required. Mango Bay delivered on all fronts!
The pool was large enough not to feel crowded. The beach is seconds away with lovely clear warm water, complimentary water sports and stunning sun sets.
Food was delicious with good service throughout the restaurant, bar and reception.
We took advantage of the complimentary Catamaran and Glass Bottom boat trips which were excellent. We also booked 3 outings through the hotel / rep which we would highly recommend - Ostins, Harbour Lights and a 360 Tour of the island with Cleston (top guy!). In addition, we experienced on the street karaoke just outside the hotel, a night out in St Lawrence Gap, took a Reggae Bus to Bridgetown and stunning meal at Champers. All really good fun and truly Bajan!
A few FYI's - we originally booked a standard room but became clear after checking in this would not be sufficient for a two week stay so we upgraded. Small room with no ceiling fan and a view of the street. A leaking air con unit didn't help matters! However this was handled promptly and we negotiated a good deal for a deluxe room.
September is 'slow season' so many of the bars and restaurants just outside the hotel were closed.
Mango Bay is a small all inclusive resort, so don't expect multiple restaurants or 24/7 food and drink.
All in all a wonderful hotel, country and people which made for a fantastic holiday!
