Location: Location is PERFECT. I liked the incl water activities. The hotel gives you a list of activities around Barbados. GREAT street party on Sundays!
I went to Mango Bay as a solo female traveller and from the moment I checked-in till the moment I left, the entire staff made me feel special. I chose Mango Bay because I wanted something more boutique, intimate, and non-commercial. The staff at Mango Bay was very attentive and caring. I thought I missed a horseback riding excursion (I showed up too early) and went back to my room. Word got around that I was looking for the horses. When they showed up, I was immediately called by a front desk person and was able to enjoy the horseback riding excursion. Mango Bay went above and beyond to making my birthday a special event! I will NEVER forget what they did for me such as decorating my room, a nice lunch setup, and dinner with a special dinner menu with my name printed on it, champagne, etc. I and my new friends really enjoyed the dinner. Because of the intimacy of Mango Bay, I can say I met other tourists and locals and we are now good friends. I HIGHLY recommend Mango Bay the next time I come to Barbados, I will definitely stay there

A great place to relax

Posted 04-Oct-2016
Amazing staff, beautiful sunsets, comfy room, compact and easy to get around the resort. Locals selling items on the beach can be annoying but they'll leave you alone if told. Food was pretty good, mix of buffet some days and menu others. Rum drinks were great! Staff was so friendly, willing to accomodate whenever asked. Chairs fill up quick around the pool. My one complaint is that the pool closes too early (6:00 pm), would be nice to have it open later for those warm nights. We had a fantastic time at Mango Bay!

Basic but good value in Barbados

Posted 04-Oct-2016
Gorgeous weather, good drinks and friendly staff add value to the otherwise basic rooms and food. Small resort with a hefty amount of locals trying to hawk their wares and services on the beachfront, including jet ski rides and waterskiing. Free catamaran cruise was not available at the times posted, but a glass bottom boat ride with snorkeling is also included and that was fun. Other fun free stuff was offered as well. High end shopping, grocery, and local bars right nearby. Hired a taxi to give us a 2 hour tour of the island, totally worth it.

Amazing Honeymoon Destination

Posted 17-Sep-2016
Pros: Beach, food, friendly people, clean, great atmosphere
Cons: Nothing comes to mind
Location: It is located in Holetown on the West side of the island. It is a short taxi ride to Oistins for the Friday fish fry. Lots to do.
This was our first time to Barbados and we had the greatest time. Mango Bay was amazing. The food was great and the staff were super friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the Fair Cottage penthouse suite, and it was absolutely breathtaking. We stayed for 7 nights and on the first night the manager sent up a bottle of champagne as a honeymoon gift. We will absolutely be coming back and recommending to our friends and family.

Overall a very good all inclusive hotel

Posted 17-Sep-2016
Pros: Very friendly staff, comfortable for the number of guests being catered for in September.
Cons: Evening entertainment. As with many hotels the policy of not saving sun beds is not adhered to.
Location: Some quality shops including duty free shops within walking distance. Number of water based activities available locally.
The only observation we have is regarding the evening entertainment which in our opinion was limited, very much the same each night. Food was of a good standard with a good selection of traditional dishes. The bar service and selection of drinks again was good. all staff were helpful and polite. The facilities ( bar, pool, areas and the beach facilities) were adequate for the numbers being catered for in September would it be as comfortable at the height of the holiday season?

ótima estadia

Posted 18-Jul-2016 on Hotels
Chegamos um pouco mais cedo que horário de check in, não entramos no quarto, mas guardaram nossas bagagens, nos apresentaram o hotel, nos deram toalhas para uso da piscina e praia, e ainda encaixaram o almoço que teoricamente não estaria disponível ainda. Desfrutamos de todas as refeições all inclusive, que não são exatamente ótimas, mas são boas. As bebidas sempre geladas e os garçons são muito prestativos. No jantar ainda tem música ao vivo. O hotel também oferece serviços de snorkel, passeios, mergulhos com hora pré-agendada na recepção do hotel. Fizemos o passeio de mergulho que foi muito bom, mas não substitui o passeio de catamarã pago disponível por empresas de turismo específicas. Em frente está o shopping Limegrove que é uma gracinha e cheio das marcas caras. Ao redor também estão disponíveis restaurantes e barzinhos. O quarto é bom, mas o que prevalece mesmo são os serviços. O mar é calmo e lembra uma piscina aquecida.

Attentive Hotel but no Food for Foodies

Posted 24-Apr-2016 on Hotels
This was an all-girls (we are all foodies) birthday celebration get-together. Hotel was very nice and the staff (with the exception of some of the restaurant staff) were super pleasant and very attentive. Lovely bar area which was always busy. Attractive pool and nice location on the beach and also walking distance to Holetown, a large supermarket (Masseys) and a number of restaurants. This was an all-inclusive however the quality of lunch and dinner (which were often buffet-style) left much to be desired. The dining staff (on some days) had a hard time keeping track of their tables and customers and muddled up orders quite often. Luckily we were able to find good food and better service at the local restaurants just down the road. Hotel buffet breakfast was ok thanks to the cooks who provided good omelettes and other types of freshly cooked eggs. Evening entertainment by the pool was average.

Decent all-inclusive resort

Posted 14-Apr-2016
Pros: The staff are FABULOUS and super accommodating. The pool area is nice-our daughter had a great time playing in it and on the small beach area.
Cons: The food was very mediocre.
Location: Very good location-in the heart of Holetown, on a great beach.
Overall we had a pleasant experience. The staff is great, the location is excellent. The rooms are ok (a bit shabby, could be updated) and things kept breaking (the fan, the AC, the safe). Everything is expensive in Barbados so the cost was decent for the island, but was quite expensive. The food certainly caters to English tastes; indeed nearly 100% of the guests are British. A lot of fried, salty food. Could definitely have seen a few more real vegetables on the buffet table!
