Mango Bay Resort
Ranked #9 of 108 Hotels in Phu Quoc Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 15, 2012

The location of the resort is beautiful. No doubt about that. All beach bungalows max 20 m away from the sea. They sell themselves as ecolodge which you can see clearly: no tv, no AC, hot water by sun boiler, no paper serviettes, almost no plastic and no cans. This is great for the environment especially in an asian country where protecting the environment is not yet a real priority.
My remarks are that it is a bit overpriced. Probabely due to to the ecothing. For three meals for 2 persons we paid approx 1,5 millon dong. Our meals were not the most extended. One dish and one drink. In vietnam this amount is enormous for food! The food was very delicious though! We did not do any tours offered in the resort as i rated them far too expensive for vietnam. Eg 30 dollar for a snorkling tour... overall service of personnelwas great. With free transfer to the airport. Hotel property is cleared everyday of litter washing up from the sea. Be aware that there is no AC in rooms and they are completley open. This makes it very humid to sleep. Putting on a ventilator for the night is risky toget a cold and pretty noisy. Tip to the hotel: If you want it really eco and comfortable consider investing in solar power and decent AC in rooms? But maybe not that easy in vietnam as i saw no solar power anywhere? Overall a good resort if you want to be quiet and away from the city rush.

Mango Bay is not your typical resort; instead its an eco-friendly resort that celebrates nature with an environmentally concious perspective. There's no AC or TV, but neither is needed. The seabreeze and endless adventures account for modern amentites. The staff is amazing- so helpful and kind. One of the staff took my husband and I on a private island tour on his day off! A wellness center on-site with facials and massages at a great price. Very nice touch to tip-off a relaxing holiday. The food and chef is suburb! As for the adventures, skip the pearl factory-- not worth the time. But, motorbiking the island, trekking in the jungle, swimming, and visiting the markets are recommended. If you are wise, visit soon! PhuQuoc is being built up massivly and will be a different island in just a few years.

This hotel is nice for what it is, which is luxury camping, and that should be no more than 1/3 the price. It is completely bare bones - e.g., they said if you need anything just call us; however, there are no phones in the room so we were instructed to use our cell phones. Also, the outside bathroom is covered a little bit by an overhang, which isn't long enough so acutally ends up dumping more water on you. The best part was the food which was really good.

Out of the control of the hotel, but something you should consider is that the roads are very difficult and so we had a walk a ways between the airport shuttle and the hotel because the vehicle couldnt make it the whole way. Also the rooms are open to the outside and so it is very, very buggy.

We stayed 3 nights at the Mango Bay resort. Despite it being the rainy season we really enjoyed our time there. The staff were fantastic, very friendly and professional.
We had a massage in the inhouse spa which was very nice and relaxing.
The food in the restaurant was some of the best we had in our travels in Vietnam, fresh, tasty and healthy. They even provided a surprise birthday cake for us.
The positives are the staff, the rooms, the beaches and the restaurant.
The negatives, it's down a bumpy wet track to get to the hotel, and you will need help from the staff, they do this with all guests and it's not too much of an issue.
The restaurant needs to get with the rest of the world and have a no-smoking policy, many of our meals were disrupted by inconsiderate smokers.
We had a garden view room which was lovely but desperately needed another chair or a lounge, we found we had to spend a long time sitting on the bed when a couple of chairs in the room would have lifted the experience.
All in all a great experience and we would recommend Mango Bay, but probably only in the dry season.

Room Tip: If you can afford the extra it's worth getting a sea view room

I checked in this resort in a rainy day so the short walk to the reception became a kinda soft adventure. I went through the dirt alley with some small gardens of butterflies. Then the scene is opened up with the green grasses then the reception. How amazing this place is contructed!!! The room at first sight was so so however once I stepped in the bathroom, I must said that it was a wow impression. It is the open bathroom with trees and birds, I even saw a squirrel up on the tree early in the morning right from my bathroom. Food in the restaurant was beautiful from breakfast to lunch and dinner. Especially the wooden cough on the rocks reminds me of Cloud9 in Sihanoukville Cambodia. Luckily my weekend was full of sunshine so the beach was awesomewith white sand and nice purple cushions. I would recommend this resort even it doesn't have a pool.

Great service from the moment we arrived at the airport! Free pick up and drop off after our stay. A lovely welcome to the resort and loved the garden bungalow we had booked. Lots of nice touches, like beach bag with beach towels, map & sun cream. We really enjoyed our stay there.
