Mango Bay

Barbados, Caribbean

Virgin rating

The hotel

Mango Bay is in a great location on a beautiful beach on the west coast. We love it because it's a small, friendly hotel that exudes bajan charm. From outside dining under the stars to traditional English afternoon tea, this hotel is ideal if you are looking for a relaxing getaway. The restaurants, bars and boutiques of fashionable Holetown St. James, along with the Limegrove Lifestyle complex, are just footsteps away - and the complimentary catamaran cruise allows you to explore even more that the island has to offer.

After reading some of the reviews my sister and I were apprehensive about staying at Mango Bay. However, we need not have worried as I can't speak highly enough about the hotel. We stayed in a deluxe room which had a lovely view of the ocean and pool. Every area of the hotel was spotlessly clean (our main priority) and all staff were friendly, helpful and kind and the service was amazing. The food was excellent with a lot of choice. The beach is in the middle of a lovely bay, so we enjoyed lots of walks along the shoreline where you could see stingrays a few feet from the shore. There were a lot of complementary water sports and although we didn't take part in them it was lovely watching people water skiing and kayaking etc. It was lovely swimming in the crystal clear water, however, there is a dip a few feet in, but you do get used to that. Coming out is a bit tricky if you aren't stable on your feet. To sum up we had a lovely holiday and will definitely return. Thank you Mango Bay. Read less

It's not surprising that visitors return each year. We are already planning our return visit for 2025. Read less

Had a happy holiday here a few years back so brought hubby on a day pass as we were staying elsewhere. He wasn’t impressed - no sunbeds available by 10am. Very overcrowded on the beach so no solution there. Unfriendly staff. A very different clientele, may be due to half term, as don’t recall many children last time.

Had a happy holiday here a few years back so brought hubby on a day pass as we were staying elsewhere. He wasn’t impressed - no sunbeds available by 10am. Very overcrowded on the beach so no solution there. Unfriendly staff. A very different clientele, may be due to half term, as don’t recall many children last time. A smoking and drinking crowd that were loud and very unlike the mature age set of the past. The lunch menu looked poor, but we actually enjoyed the food. Mango Bay use to have a reputation for its food, so that was reassuring. The other big change was the netted swim area, which is needed due to the mass boat traffic and jet skis. The cats didn’t use to stop one after one outside mango, so I suspected the turtles had moved in to the area …. So that’s the good news…. If you are a strong swimmer it’s not far to swim out to their anchorage (not very safe though). I saw 3 turtles, 3 sting rays and s huge tarpon in the morning. 4 turtles in the afternoon… So for me the day was worth it. Hubby not impressed for c £100 each though and days we won’t be booking Read less
