We are in paradise😊
We arrived yesterday after going through all the Covid checks we were unsure what to expect but WOW upgraded to a beach front room, Mango bay is a wonderful hotel can’t wait to spend the next 10 days here in paradise! Thanks to Natasha for my omelette great start to our holiday🥳
Great time, sad to leave!
Had such a great time here & sad to leave after a weeks stay. It’s a small but lovely hotel that is right on the beach & you couldn’t get a better location. The beach out front is absolutely stunning, plenty of sun loungers and staff will love beds around for you no problem. They offer free water sports, speedboat, catamaran, water skies, snorkels , kayaking .. The room we had was good, had everything we needed & cleaned everyday. The only downside for us was that we were on the street side and although there was a curfew when we went I can imagine it would have been quite noisy on a night in normal times as we could hear everything going on in the street. Nothing earbuds wouldn’t fix tho! Food was good, preferred the a la carte menu over the buffet. For breakfast they would do eggs how you like them & the crispy bacon was so good! Lunch a la carte was usually a choice of about 3 meals & the fish of the day which I had most times & was really nice. Dinner I think we only had once as ate at Tides & Lonestar (must go!) and was out in the bars on the other nights! Views of the beach while having breakfast lunch and dinner was lovely. There was some singers on a night before the curfew but most nights we made our own fun & went out or met others in the hotel for drinks. The bar had lots of cocktails, spirits & banks beer & bottled water. Damien the dancing bar man would always top you up if you were empty! All in all, we had a really good time.The hotel is much smaller than any all inclusive I’ve been to before but guests got to know each other well & we met so many lovely people. I just want to say a thank you to all the staff in the hotel who were lovely & approachable. I would defo recommend this hotel especially if you like a more intimate setting & not the huge resort style hotels you get in places like Mexico.
What a fantastic place
This hotel is excellent small homely the staff are so friendly go out of there way to help always a good morning and a smile bar staff are very skilled with the coctails, waitresses also smiling and happy to help there is also some very skilled chefs here the food is excellent keep doing what you are doing as you are doing it right
We have just come back from a fantastic week holiday. I was aBit cautious after reading some previous bad reviews but honestly I think these comments are unfair. The staff were really polite, friendly and very welcoming especially the bar staff! The food was great, some days was a buffet (the buffet area is small but it’s a small hotel so don’t expect a massive selection as it’s not a big hotel) there was also a set menu for alternative lunch and dinners and these were excellent!! So tasty. We had just a standard room, yes it was aBit dated but it was clean! We was only in the room to sleep so we wasn’t bothered about this. Yes I could sit and pick stuff to Moan at if I wanted too (like everything in life) but we there to enjoy our holiday. The beach is amazing! Nice walk either side. Cocktails were included. On arrival we had to wear our isolation bands, this means we were able to stay around the complex and pool area etc just not aloud out the hotel or to the beach until we got our results.. we had them back 12 hours after arrival so wasn’t bad. Brought our cases up to room. They didn’t hound you for tips, we did tip but wasn’t pressurised into it. Plenty of chairs around pool and beach. Free Water sports on beach, also extras if you want to pay (jet skis, ringos etc) Over all excellent hotel, would return and recommend.
After reading some of the reviews before we flew was really worried we had made a huge mistake as we’ve been to Barbados’s many times before and stayed on the south side at different Hotels. It was our Ruby wedding anniversary so was a bit special this time. Well all I can say I’m not sure why people had put such negative reviews from start to finish this Hotel and it’s staff could not help us enough and make us feel special and welcome. Cara on front Desk for showing us our beautiful ocean view room the housekeeping for decorating our room with balloons etc the restaurant staff for constantly asking if everything was ok which it was lovely food and plenty to drink the very energetic funny Darien bringing our drinks to us on the beautiful beach 🏖 also Ronald the hotel manager daily walking around making sure all guests are happy. In this current climate with COVID it is hard for the island so they have done an amazing job. The hotel could do with a little TLC as a little dated but that is the charm of Rustic Barbados’s you could spend a fortune on a stunning Hotel just up the road Sandy Lane but you will still get the same beach and beautiful ocean. We had free boats trips daily as the turtles were only a stones throw from the beach and were lovely to see also Steve’s horse ride up the beach was amazing all I can say is A Huge Thankyou Mango Bay we will be back x
