#3 of 5 in Holetown
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.

Just got back from our Holiday at Mango Bay Hotel. This was our 3rd visit but this time we came with our Daughter her Husband and our beautiful Grandson Henry of 7 months. We had a fabulous time. Rooms were good food was great and our stay was just so nice. Many of the staff made time for Henry especially Maxine. Henry needs a special diet and the chef's from the restaurant went out of their way to make his meals for him. Thankyou. If you want a lovely hotel and location with good food and entertainment then Mango Bay Hotel Barbados is the place to stay. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful stay at Mango Bay in February. The Room was just off the pool and only a few of these so we were very lucky. The food was faultless such variety and beautifully presented. The staff were very attentive especially Damiane what an absolute superstar and an asset to this hotel. The CEO and the Customer care manager really do an amazing g job getting feedback and making sure things are put right. The evening entertainment is the best we have had in the Caribbean live music every night in a boutique hotel it was awesome. We had the pleasure of meeting g a couple and enjoyed being part of their wedding vowel renewal, what a great day! Personally we found Barbados too commercial and ridiculously expensive. I would highly recommend the hotel but sadly for us we would not go back to Barbados. We love the Caribbean and have visited 3 times already in the past 10 months. We love Antigua and St Kitts is also a beautiful island. Thank you Mango Bay for your excellent service it truly made our holiday.

Just returned from our family holiday!, This is the only hotel for us as we are repeat customers and have been ever since the hotel first opened. Staff ,food,beach all fantastic. This hotel has a unique feel to it and not modern in any way but has that lovely relaxed bajan feeling . Rooms cleaned twice daily and nothings to much trouble if needed. It’s a long journey from uk to barb but it’s worth the wait. Beach vendors are also good a few to avoid but most are reasonable and do not bother you. Make use of the watersports facilities all free!!! All of our children have learnt to waterski thanks to Jerry and Peter. Unfortunately there were a few very large bookings of younger people that seemed to take over to some degree but that’s a one off hopefully! We had a day at the sister hotel The Sands completely free of charge it was extremely plush and worth a visit as some may prefer that modern,but still chilled vibe. What more can I say apart from keep doing what your doin Mr Odell because it’s works! Looking forward to the new Mango bay sports bar!,I did say I’ll come and work there for you!, 🤣 Hope to see you soon and a few of the other repeat customers we seem to bump into every time.

We have just returned from a weeks stay at Mango Bay. We stayed in a ground floor ocean view room which was excellent, we could walk out through the doors straight onto the beach. Rooms are basic but very comfortable and have everything you need, mini fridge with soft drinks, tea and coffee making facilities, safe, excellent air conditioning, large bathroom with plenty of storage space. Large wardrobe and plenty of drawers/shelves. Bed extremely comfortable. Food was excellent quality, 2 nights were buffet, the rest A’la carte. Always a varied choice on the menu. Beach was beautiful, always plenty of sun beds. Nice walks along the beach in both directions. Great spot for snorkelling, I’m not a lover of the water but even I took part, you could literally stand knee high, put your face in the water and see rays and fish. My husband and son did kayaking and paddle boarding and we went on the free catamaran trip, you don’t get to swim with turtles on that one but still worth doing. We did an island tour with Ted’s tours, great guy who is very passionate about his island, and literally knows everyone on the island! Would recommend to book with him. We visited Tides restaurant which is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel, amazing place, so is the food, not the cheapest but for a treat or special occasion it’s definitely worth it. Anyone who is hesitant about booking, I would say go for it! If you want a great location, fantastic beach, friendly staff, excellent food, what more do you want.

The best kept secret of this hotel is the reef 25 metres from the beach with excellent snorkelling. All gear free to borrow. The chef will make you anything you desire , the front sea view rooms are well worth the extra cost too. Beautiful hotel, good location on the edge of Holetown. Staff here are kind, attentive and very professional , thank you

My wife and I have just returned from a 2 week holiday at The Mango Bay and we have nothing but praise for the staff and the hotel in general. From the moment we checked in, we were treated like family. Everybody at the hotel works so hard to make your holiday so special. Big shout out to Damian (the dancing waiter!), Nadia at Julian's Restaurant. and Mrs Cave who serviced our room. They were amazing but I could mention everybody there! The beach is amazing, plenty of sun loungers, free water sports (kayak was great fun!). The room was lovely and had a great view of the Sea. We had a bottle of champagne on out last night as it was my wife's birthday; such a lovely surprise! The food was lovely and varied. You arrange lunch and dinner reservations at breakfast and this was never a problem to get a time slot. The hotel is close to the local bars so if you want a peaceful sleep, get an ocean view room. It's worth it, honestly ! The Mango Bay is a perfect hotel for couples and we found no fault at all. We will be back and to all the team at the hotel, THANK YOU! We will be back!

The hotel it’s self was in a fantastic location, what really makes this hotel are the staff who work in it, such lovely, friendly and accommodating people. We had a deluxe twin room. Sadly I think we had one that was still to be refurbished. The aircon worked well but we had to ask for the bathrobes, at times towels weren’t replaced and we had no iPod doc. All small things but did create down points. The food was really good all but 1 day where it was clear the left over BBQ had been recycled. The restaurant staff were rushed off their feet but still ensured we were served well. Loved the variety of choice. There was always something, nothing ran out which can often happen during buffet services. It was nice to have a mix between table service and buffet service. There is 2 points that need addressing which proved to be a huge bugbear. If you weren’t up at the crack of dawn to get a sun bed, it’s likely you won’t get one and if you do the beach lads will get you one from the ‘old reserves’. The hotel do issue you with a letter on arrival to say reserving sun beds isn’t allowed but do nothing to enforce it. During our stay we would watch the same people go and block out 10-20 beds early in the morning (6am) for their party but not actually use them till lunch time. The second is the beach service. You get a flag and if you require service you put it up. 2 of the lads were fantastic but rushed off their feet so if you were served it was quicker to walk to the bar and get them yourself. The lady who did beach service was simply lazy. She would look at your flag and look away, many times we saw her take a drink into the beach boys hut and stay in their for a while whilst the boys rushed around. On the whole a great stay but the outside space isn’t large enough to accommodate the hotel plus the apartments next door,sadly. I would recommend staying there but to pick your timing wisely and avoid peak.

We stayed here for a long weekend over our 2 week trip to Barbados. We know the area quite well and Holetown is one of our favourite places. The location is absolutely amazing. The West coast is spectacular. The staff were friendly, food was nice (but sometimes the portions were a bit small) and the drinks were great! All staff were very nice, but the serving staff in the restaurant were very attentive. The best part for us was the free catamaran and boat rides included in the stay! We loved this, it was a welcomed surprise! We would definitely come back here, we are planning a trip for Jan 23, I’d happily return to Mango Bay for longer than a long weekend. We stayed in a standard room overlooking the pool, the room was spacious, clean with good air conditioning. The bed was very comfy too. Only downside was when we took a shower the bathroom floor would get very wet.
