This was our second visit to Mango Bay and we were pleased to see that being a returning guest really means something here as we were allocated a nice room which contained a chilled bottle of sparkling wine waiting for us along with a welcome back card which was a nice touch.
We had travelled up from a larger Hotel on the South Coast which had a different feel and a much larger beach .
The beach at Mango Bay has been eroded from our last visit and this wasnt helped by rough sea conditions on our first two days..
We spent some time comparing the two Hotels and concluded they had very different strengths.
The food, service and staff at Mango Bay are fantastic , we had the need to call reception for assistance on three occasions , the last one late at night to remove a Geko which although harmless terrified my wife.
On each occasion they responded within 5 minutes , even sending up a nice chap with a sweeping brush whom my wife named the official Geko catcher !
The Hotel is very compact and can be too compact if you want time on your own as there seem to be many couples who enjoy telling others their life history whether you want to hear it or not ! but generally the people here are very pleasant and many return year after year.
The area around the Hotel seems improved with the Lime Grove Centre containing some lovely shops at not too lovely prices but its very safe to walk out , the Holetown Church is insipiring, its great to see the community dressed up and welcoming all to their Sunday service.
We would certainly go back again , the staff in Reception , restaurant and in the background are all superb and we were delighted to see Mango Bay thriving four years on.
