Stayed here with extended family over Easter holidays. Nice and small hotel with lots of charm. The staff made this hotel the best holiday. Friendly and knowledgeable about Barbados. Always very helpful and asking if they could do anything to make our stay better. Every member of staff was very friendly and helpful and always smiling. The food was lovely as well. Mostly al a carte dining. The men need to wear long trousers and collars and this is enforced. Would highly recommend Mango Bay and will hopefully be going back Read less

We stayed at Mango Bay for 7 nights, but wished it could have been longer. The hotel is quite small, which makes for a more intimate feel. And it’s right on the beach, whilst also handy for the delights of Holetown (check out the Chatel Houses). Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable (we plumped for an ocean view room and slept to the soothing sound of waves breaking on the beach). The food is great, with the restaurant opening out onto the beach front. Unusually for an all inclusive resort, most meals are al a carte, rather than buffet style, which made for a better experience. And the food was consistently great. All the staff were friendly and attentive. We would highly recommend Mango Bay, and look forward to a return visit in the not too far distant future. Read less
