Wonderful resort. Small and intimate. Friendly staff. Had a great time! Entertainment every night. Always different. Many activities are part of the "all inclusive". We didn't do much exploring outside of the resort, but we will next time.

Stayed: March 2014, traveled as a couple

Have just spent 3 nights at Mango Bay prior to embarking on a sailing holiday. This is the third time we have stayed at Mango Bay and everything was just as good as ever. We had requested an ocean view room, as high as possible but were originally placed in a ground floor room. However, following our request to have a high room, we were moved the following day to a higher room, which was splendid. This was all carried out with efficiency and the minimum of fuss.

I cannot recommend this hotel high enough - the location, beach, staff, food etc., etc., is excellent and I do hope we will return in the near future.

Only one disappointing matter was the fact that originally we had tried to book a further 3 days at the end of our sailing holiday but even though there was availability, our booking was not accepted because it was only for 3 days and not the minimum 5 day requirement. In the past we had managed to do 3 days either end of the holiday but this time it was not to be. I do hope that this policy changes by the time of our next visit to Barbados.

Dear Pilotgirl,
Thank you for sharing this review of your third stay at Mango Bay!
I am delighted to read that this third visit was just as good as the last. We are truly happy that we were able to accommodate your request and that the combination of location, beach, staff and food make Mango Bay a hotel you would like to visit time and time again!

Concerning not being able to book another 3 nights after your sail due to the minimum requirement of 5 nights, these are package guidelines determined by your Tour Operator.
We hope to welcome you back to Mango Bay in the near future, but for a longer stay!

Kind Regards,
Anthony Johnson.

Well what can we say, just returned after doing a week on the Thomson Dream and then a week at the Wonderful Mango Bay. First just two issues, one Thomsons did not advise that we had to put down a breakage amount of $200 which they take a credit card for if you want (don't actually take the payment from the card unless needed) and the second was the party on the street behind the hotel on the Sunday (not the hotels fault), after a cruise we were ready on the Sunday to have a much needed good nights sleep, this did not happen as the party went on till about 2am in the morning, but this was the only night so did not spoil our enjoyment.
This fantastic resort has the best food, freshly cooked and so tasty, the trips out were also great and the room was very spacious and very clean, fresh pool towels everyday are great.
As for the staff, brilliant in the restaurant, the bar staff, Peter., Dennis and Andre, and then Marcia from reception what can I say when you actually get a hug from her when you leave, you feel like part of a big family.
Entertainment - everynight was brilliant but the singer on the Wednesday was superb, must also mention the singing Chef, what a voice.
All in all would highly recommend this resort, meet so wonderful people who we plan on staying in contact with too.

Room Tip: If you can put up with the Sunday night street party a standard room is great

We have just returned from a very relaxing holiday at Mango bay. We looked at reviews before we went, and most of them reflect how we felt. A lovely hotel, right on the beach, staff bent over backwards to ensure that everything was perfect. Food was good and varied, nothing was too much trouble. There were always plenty of loungers both on the beach and round the pool, bar service at both. The hobby cat, glass bottom boat and catamaran were a bonus and being picked up from the beach was even better. We liked the fact that there was a dress code for meals, and this was strictly observed.
Just a small tip, the Post Office in Holetown will change money, and much easier and pleasanter than the bank !!!
We did the 360% trip around the island, good value for money, there were only four of us on the minibus so not like going on a trip with lots of people and the driver is happy to detour if we wished.
We will definitely return, the one holiday where we were not in a hurry to come home. Many thanks to all the pleasant staff who made our stay so memorable.

Room Tip: It is worth upgrading your room if you want quiet

This hotel ticks all the boxes if you're looking for a relaxing holiday exceptional service and quality food. The only problem you will have is deciding from the menu what to have! I noticed there was a majority of retired people staying at the resort and that many of them came back there year after year, that in itself tells you Mango Bay has got something quite special for people to keep returning. I agree and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a nice quiet relaxing holiday. To mention that dress code must be obeyed to or you will not be able to enter the eating area. It really is a dress up occasion for your evening meal which we found a real delight. The staff were very friendly and extreamley polite at all times. The pool was very clean as were the rooms with towels changed daily. I would say that a room facing the road is noisy till 2 AM sometimes and this was a problem to me. The noise was coming from the local bars. As soon as I mentioned this to the staff I was offered a move to a different room and this was exceptional service and very much apreciated. The manager, Amanda saw to this move straight away and her caring nature shone through, thank you Amanda. My room was 410 so avoid it if this would bother you. Other rooms like pool side or view or ocean view didn't have this problem. The water sports were great too and there was no rushing to get a sunbed in the morning, there are plenty to choose from. If you like snorkelling you will be very pleased here, it is all on your local beach and so are the turtles. I will certainly go back there again but next time I will go for longer and ocean view. The view is beautiful and you only live once!

Here for the 4th time and still loving it. We booked a superior room as from experience we know the standard rooms at the back are extremely noisy. Staff were all so friendly and helpful as always, and the new manager Anthony is very pleasant and high profile. There are many repeat guests and we found a relaxed friendly atmosphere with guests chatting to one another as one previous visits. A bit surprised some people find this offputting!
It is true that the bathrooms are getting a bit tired, and a lick of paint here and there would not go amiss, but food and service standards are excellent. There is a tendency for over loud pop music to be playing in public areas from breakfast onwards which we did mention. Would rather have the volume down a bit and some Caribbean music in the background.
Hire a car for a day or two and visit the beautiful East Coast, especially Bathsheba, and also take in the Flower Caves at North Point and Grenade Hill wildlife reserve.
Overall still a great location and warm welcome and we will be back soon.
