We just returned from Mango Bay and had an absolute blast! Twelve of us traveled from Augusta, GA on June 21st and stayed until June 28th. This was our sixth trip to the Caribbean and without a doubt the best.
The staff was incredible! I have never seen an entire staff bend over backwards to make sure our stay was a memoriable one.
We had one ocean front room and five one bedroom apartments. I upgraded to these rooms before our arrival because I don't expect a hotel to upgrade you for free. Only two of the one bedroom apartments are owned by Mango Bay, according to the manager, but they were wonderful. I stayed in the ocean front and loved it. We have stayed at Ritz Carlton's in Montego Bay and San Juan. The rooms at the RC are nicer but Mango Bay is close.
The pool is nice with ample floats, chairs, and a volleyball net.
Only one of our party used the spa but she loved it. She stated that it was the best peticure she had ever received.
The bar was great. Chelton, Jonathan, Andre, and the rest were all super. It was so much fun watching them "make up" drinks for the regulars at the bar. The bartenders knew when it was time for another before you did!
The restaurant was incredible. This was,by far, the best food we have ever had at an all inclusive. The breakfast was a buffett but you could have eggs prepared any way you preferred. The lunch was only buffett once or twice, great both ways. Dinner was off the charts! There was much variety every single night. Even on our last night the chef topped himself. Our sons caught a Kingfish in front of the hotel. I asked the chef if he could prepare the fish and he happily agreed. We gave him the fish, around 35 pounds, at 6:00 PM and he had it ready at 8:30 PM. It was great.
The nightly entertainment was the only disappointment we had. We were hoping for a little more "Caribbean style" music but we got a lot of slower music instead.
In closing, this was the best resort we've experienced to date. Not only is the staff great but the other guests were truly fun to vacation with. If you chose the Mango Bay you can't go wrong!
