Mango Bay Barbados is ideal for those seeking the convenience of an ALL-INCLUSIVE beach vacation combined with the personal and friendly service of a small resort. It enjoys a sought-after beachfront setting in St. James, on the famous west coast of Barbados.There are restaurants, bars, boutiques and cinema just steps away from Mango Bay in lively Holetown, including the brand new, upscale, LIMEGROVE LIFESTYLE CENTRE across the road from the resort. Mango Bay is approximately a 45 minute drive from the airport, and a 25-minute drive south of the hotel takes you to the capital Bridgetown. Mango Bay definitely gives you added value for an all inclusive hotel- included is a complimentary two-hour catamaran cruise to see the turtles, waterskiing & a glass bottom boat ride.

This is my second visit to Mango Bay. Please note that this hotel is NOT Sandals. We choose this hotel because of its great location on a fantastic beach. We don’t eat in the hotel at night because we love the restaurants in and around Barbados, especially the west coast. La Cabane, Lone Star, The Cliff, Tides, Nishi, Sitar, Fusion just a few to mention. Breakfast is very adequate sat right beside the clear blue sea. Personally I wouldn’t want to be tied to any hotel night in night out. Shout out to Cyril who runs a boat beside the hotel called hallelujah and he took us to both Lone Star and La Cabane beach bars. He’ll drop you off and then come back for you later. Brilliant way to arrive and much better fun then a taxi. Barbados is rustic. Our room was basic but spotless with new and very efficient air conditioning. The cleaner did a fantastic job cleaning every day but one while we were there. If you want 5 star close by then try The Sandpiper or Colony Club but you’ll pay way more for B&B. We’ve stayed in better hotels on the south coast but in my opinion the west coast is much better and Mango Bays location is perfect. Please don’t believe the rubbish about raw sewerage in the sea, it’s a water outlet beside the hotel and after heavy rain it can direct muddy water from the streets. The staff at the hotel are extremely friendly if you’re friendly to them. It’s embarrassing listening to the way some people think it’s ok to talk to the staff!! I’m not great with names but our cleaning lady was particularly friendly and I have to mention Damien the barman who is absolutely brilliant. Well done Mango Bay we will be back again. I have just one negative and that’s the disposable plastic glasses they serve on the beach. They give you a paper straw with a plastic cup. We found these is the sea constantly whilst snorkelling. In a world that’s trying to rid the oceans of plastic this is madness. The reusable glasses you have would be better. Go to Barbados and expect rustic, get out and about and eat in all the local restaurants because the food is amongst the best in the world

Currently coming to the end of a ten day stay. This is our second visit to this superbly located hotel. Prior to our arrival we had read some poor reviews on Trip Adviser, I honestly cannot fathom that these reviews were talking about the same hotel. Staff have been excellent , happy and nothing is too much trouble in the restaurant bar beach and reception. Special mention to Ryan , Pedro , Adio, Dale , Daniellle , Kyle , Mikala, Annette, Maxine and Damien. Free water sports are an added bonus and trips along the coast with Jerry and Peter were excellent and were free to hotel guests . Previous review pointed out that there was a sewerage outlet next to the hotel , this is totally incorrect ; it’s a mangrove water outlet , filled with Barbadian wildlife. A red flag is placed on the beach not to indicate sewerage, but to let guests know that muddy water is draining off the hills into the sea . Service and presentation of food is excellent and is a mixture of al a carte and buffet style . Quality is very good and varied . Wide selection of good quality drinks available . The island is currently under a 9pm curfew : however the hotel has an earlier entertainment programme and made arrangements for the bar to stay open till 10.30. So overall we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and incidentally did not receive a bottle of champagne for our 5 star review !

My wife and I, were "persuaded" to stay here by Virgin Holidays for our Honeymoon, advising us "that it would be better for couples without families, it would be more private and relaxing"....simply, they were wrong. The Hotel was dated... in 2014, the pictures show look no different now, so its even further dated. We asked for a pool or sea view room (to Virgin) instead they booked us a street view room, overlooking local bars and houses. The room was VERY dated, but more worryingly had 3 locks on the door and was watched by locals. The noise from the bars was unbearable, it was like actually being in the bar itself. We asked to move the second day and Virgin rep was about as useful as a chocolate fire guard. We eventually moved (having agreed to ay an extra £50 per night, Virgin went half with us) at the end (10pm at night) of the second day to a "deluxe" pool view room, which on appearance was much nicer, less dated, quieter and felt safer (in spite of having just one lock on the door). As we moved so late in the day, we never unpacked out bags, and left them against the wall in the room. We were woken in the early hours by the sound of dripping, which we couldn't find in the bathroom.... it was the A/C unit, leaking all over our bags. We rang reception, they came up told us to turn the A/C off... great yeah, we'll just sleep in the 30 degree heat... we're British for christ sakes, we are allergic to the heat. So they offered to move our room, offering us a similar "deluxe" room, that stunk of damp, had a dehumidifier on in the room as well as UV light machine to kill the obvious germs....errr No thanks we said, rather not get ill, will slum it without A/C. The hotel said they'd try to get round to fixing it the next day... they did try....and failed. The A/C unit was "allegedly fixed", but leaked again during the night, again switched off and slummed it. Complained the next day, the hotel did nothing.... another day unfixed. Our 5th night in the hotel saw us change rooms for the 3rd time, this one had a working A/C unit (they eventually conceded they couldn't fix ours), at least it worked while we were there. Room problems aside.... the hotel was messy, unclean, food was average at best, but most of the time poor. I was disappointed by this most (aside from the room) as this would be so easy for them to get their reputation back, lunch was often just the previous days evening meals...that gave me a warm feeling of freshness. The fact that they insisted on a dress smart policy for dinner was a pain in the A**, it would be late 20's and humid and gents had to wear trousers or Chino's (No jeans or shorts), which made it unbearably hot, not great while eating with all the doors open and some 1940's style roof fan blowing hot air at you. hotel and restaurant staff were rude... except for Sandy on the beach activities hut, who was very nice and friendly. The hotel happily let locals walk off the beach and harass guests to buying "Aloe". We complained a few times to the Virgin holidays rep...they were unhelpful. I wouldnt to change hotels, but as we had just paid for our own wedding (and the extortionate price for in reality what was a 2* hotel) we couldnt afford it. After the holiday we complained in writing to the hotel and to Virgin Holidays. Virgin refunded us the full cost of the hotel and the hotel wrote to us and apologised and refunded us the cost of the upgraded room, which we had had to pay for ourselves. The only thing this hotel had going for it was the beach / water sports activities. The rest was just rubbish. 2* at best hotel, massively overrated, we would never go back. I am shocked above all else, HOW on earth this hotel has such a high rating on Trip Advisor. I understand the A/C issue was more unique, but the rest of the hotel was terrible. I expected so much more from a 4* hotel, I have stayed in MANY, Travelodge is better quality...at least they're clean and have friendly staff.

Just arrived back from the beautiful island of Barbados that was let down by staying at this shambles of a hotel . I have never before felt a complete inconvenience to majority of the staff in a holiday hotel . I write this recognising that we traveled in a pandemic however a smile and attention to detail should not be affected . We stayed in standard rooms and whilst dated we were only in the room to sleep . Room was serviced each day and had adequate AC , the only issue we had was on our check out day when on flushing the toilet sewerage came up through the shower . Noise wasn’t an issue got us as we were facing the pool and the curfew meant everywhere closed in the first week at 11 then the second week at 9pm . The worst part was the lack of attention to detail in the restaurant . The first week all buffet meals where ‘served’ to you , you carrying the plate and staff serving you tiny portions . If you asked for more we were often asked on the same plate ? On the first week we were often seated and then waited over an hour to be ‘invited ‘ into the buffet . In fairness to the management they do take into account comments on this site and changed the process for the second week that did improve at times the speed of service . However it didn’t change the attitude of the majority of staff . I heard younger female staff sucking their teeth when asked for items by guests . The more mature serving staff were more pleasant . The beach and sea are amazing it is such a pity the standard of customer service and the hotel let it down . If you are already committed to this hotel I would not advise booking any trips with them - the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing . We were not informed one trip was cancelled , which I get will happen but communication does not happen here . We re booked Oistins Fish Fry constantly checked to see if it was going ahead . Finally found Ronald to be informed that it hadn’t re opened . However other guests did go via other companies do obviously Ronald informed us in correctly . I was shocked to hear from guests and feel I should point out that if guests left a 5 star review whilst still at the hotel they were given a bottle of champagne . This makes this site a shambles .This hotel does not warrant a five star review and it is also not a 4 star hotel - more two star . Looking at the cost for next year which is £1500 more per person than we paid it will be a very expensive wrong choice in my honest opinion . I am surprised UK your operators are still selling this hotel . My two stars are based on location and the fantastic Pedro who was friendly Professional and worked his socks of !
