We have just returned from a two week stay which was a return visit from last year having falling in love with the place.
What makes it's special ? For us the answer is simple, the welcoming staff and management !
Everything is done to try and ensure that you enjoy your stay and if unfortunately you experience a problem the staff will do their uppermost to put things right.
As far as we are concerned the attentiveness to the guest is second to none and you always feel that it is being done through a genuine desire to do it rather than just being part of the job !
During our stay the hotel had issues to contended with surrounding the closure of the beach (due to the advertised Holetown beach regeneration works) but contingency plans were in place with transportation to a nearby beach where a team of staff provided all the comforts of sunbeds, umbrellas, food, drinks and water sports.
The team at Mangobay is led by Director of Operations Anthony Johnson, a very visible and approachable presence who radiates a passion for providing guests with the very best experience and has a great team behind him.
Yes I can understand some of the comments on here with regards to the need for refurbishment in certain areas and if when choosing a holiday this is a major driver then disappointment may pursue, but, Mangobay is about people, the new friends you make with in the intimate surroundings of the pool, bar and restaurant and the wonderful Barbadian personality of the guys and girls who look after you.
Mangobay is in our opinion an ideal place to relax, recharge and be looked after and yes we shall return next year and we will count the days to our return.
Thank you Mangobay for another unforgettable holiday, keep doing what you are doing because you get far more right than you get wrong!
