Just returned from a 10 night stay at Mango Bay.. upgraded on arrival to the superior room, large room over looking the pool/bar. We had a wonderful holiday due to Staff , all staff friendly and make this hotel particularly Tre, Reah, Pedro, Marcia, Peter to nane few. Food.. we thought for an all inclusive food was very good and didn't have an issue booking lunch and dinner at breakfast time. Beach .. enough loungersfor everyone. Beach boys were ok not as friendly as the other staff. Cats at the hotel do soil on the beach and I feel this needs to be addressed especially with children playing on the beach. 2 boat trips included with your holiday , both were good. We loved this hotel and would book again Read less

Such lovely staff especially Pedro and Marcia who always gave you their time and would always ask about your day and how you were doing. Food was faultless, I am a fussy eater and the staff were more than happy to make me something that wasn’t on the menu/in the buffet that night. Rooms were cleaned brilliantly and we had fresh beach towels every day. Overall a wonderful holiday and we can’t wait to return. Read less

Food was real good, they only had one restaurant and bar although the staff was very accommodating if you wanted a snack or anything else. Drinks were good and so were the bartenders (Dwayne specifically ). Beach was small but clean, water was clear. All water activities were included plus you can go in a glass bottom boat that takes you to a sunken ship where you can also snorkel. Included is also a catamaran trip to go swimming with turtles (most places you pay extra for this). Shopping within walking distance and so are restaurants and bars. Not for the partier small resort, nightly musical entertainment that goes well with the ambiance. Overall a nice getaway! Read less

We stayed here for 11 nights in August, and we found most of the staff friendly and the rooms were cleaned daily, the hotel is dated in some parts and needs to be updated, the food was a little hit and miss!

I think this hotel would be even better if it was adults only. Read less
