We always look forward to returning to this lovely little hotel. Again we were not disapponted, and as always we were made very welcome.
The weather was nigh on perfect with only a few showers, with amazingly few Mozzies, the sand had come back and the sea was calm alllowing us to enjoy the Catermaran, Hobicat & Pedaloes. The Hobicat was particularly enjoyable as our "Captain" took time to explain about the beaches and houses & hotels as we passed them.
It is very tempting to just chill out whilst at Mango Bay and you have to be very strong to resist the temptation of the sunbeds whilst being waited on by Peter & Donald from the bar with offers of the many various drinks & cocktails served from 10am onwards.
There is an excellent breakfast choice to suit all tastes to be found in the restaurant, followed by lunch, then afternoon tea and even more food for dinner. In the event of not finding your liking on the menu Chef will prepare an alternative - so there is absolutely no chance of leaving the hotel the same weight that you arrived.
The bedrooms are cool and very clean, nice comfy beds, plenty of pillows, you can even have your sheets changed on a daily basis if you wish., fresh towels and beach towels arrive each evening. The rooms are equipped with a kettle and coffe & tea which is replaced daily, there is an iron & ironing board, a clothes airer and a safe. An excellent hair drier is in the drawer and bathrobes in the bathroom. There is also a flat screen TV which could be a little erratic channel wise.
Barbados is a very diverse island and definitely worth a tour, the East Coast is stunning and we would urge you to venture out. Holetown is on the doorstep with shops, supermarket & post office all near at hand.
There are various restaurants right outside the hotel, also Lexi's Piano Bar, Ragamuffins which serves food and also hosts the Manequins in Motion Drag Show on Sunday Nights (Not to be missed - book on line well in advance), also the One Love Karioke Bar is in full flow for the weekend street party. (This can be very loud)
The hotel has entertainment each night which is most enjoyable but can be rather loud ( as is all music in the Caribbean). There are free trips on the Stilletto Catermaran to swim with the turtles (and you do) and a glass bottom boat.
There is a Spa at the hotel which does the best manicure ever, more lovely staff here.
The Management & Staff are fantastic, and you are expected to advise of any problems which are sorted immediately.
Thank you everyone for making our holiday so enjoyable .
PS: Shireene, the room key is in the post!!!
