Mango Bay All Inclusive
Travel Blogs from Holetown
Nach einer kurzen Nacht und nicht aufhören wollendem Kofferpacken (gefühlte 5 Stunden - und das für 10 Tage!) machten wir uns in aller Herrgottsfrühe auf auf den Weg nach Frankfurt, um unsere Reise nach Barbados zu beginnen.
Auf der Fahrt: Sauwetter!!! Aber immerhin kein Schnee!
Nachdem wir unseren Wagen in einem …
Come on we've only got a few days left. No more lazing around. Whar shall we do today? We all agree it's a leisurely walk down to the bus stop (we have to do something to counteract the excessive eating) and we will head into Bridgetown to look at wedding rings.
Great breakfast first. Phil digs out the frozen croissants that we bought a couple of weeks ago. "They only take 13 minutes" ...
Oh no, it's Ruth and Malcolm's last day. They are leaving this afternoon and we will be very sad to see them go. It also reminds us that we only have 4 more days here. (That's me crying you can hear).
Well there's no better way to say goodbye than to eat, so a big breakfast it is. Mum and I prepare ackee, salt fish, fried dumplings, beans and plantain. Ruth also musters up some bacon and Omara does a bit ...
Every morning we get up and throw all the doors open because its really hot (just in case I hadn't mentioned that before).
I hear a shout from Malcolm who has just opened one of the patio doors to the pool. He suggests that anybody of a nervous disposition might want to avoid coming outside for the time being.
I just had to look and there it was - the killer worm. It was massive and just ...
As always we have a leisurely start to the day. We're on the countdown now as Ruth and Malcolm leave on Sunday and we go on Thursday. We just keep talking about how fast the time has gone and we're not ready to go home. Mum doesn't want to leave at all.
Over breakfast we exchange stories of our experiences of the two restaurants we went to last night - both very different of course.
It's a beach day ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mango Bay All Inclusive Holetown
OK hotel in a great position
Just returned from Christmas at the Mango Bay Hotel. The best thing about the hotel is the proximity to Holetown and all the West Coast Restaurants - many of which you can walk to. The hotel itself suffers from a lack of sunbeds round the pool and on the beach (you have to get up early to get a spot and you often find the early birds have been out with their towels) and the rooms are basic and could do with a refurb.
The atmosphere is a bit 'clicky' with many groups of people returning year after year. But the hotel staff are excellent. Book a superior room as the standards are in a noisy position.
Mango Bay Hotel is Perfect in everyway. We returned from there April 1st 2003 after enjoying 14 days of sheer bliss. Food is fantastic, staff are very friendly. Hotel is right on the beach. We originally went in march 2001, and we plan to go again in 2006 for our friends 50th birthdays! and our to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary. We cant recommend Mango Bay enough! Tricia(in the restaurant) and Marcus, Sheree and all the crew are the BEST! The hotel is situated near everything, such as chemist. doctors, shops etc should you need them.
this was one of the best vacations that we have ever been on. the staff at this resort were incredible. although there was only one restaurant, the choice and quality of the food was unsurpassed. i would have no hesitation to return to this resort for another vacation.
We just returned from a week at Mango Bay. The hotel itself is very nice. It's small, very clean and nicely decorated. We found the quality, variety and taste of the food to be very good and although the restaurant was not as expansive as most all-inclusives, we looked forward to every meal and actually preferred Mango Bay to other all-inclusives where we have stayed. The most notable thing about Mango Bay is the staff. They are terrific! Everyone greets you with a smile and hello. Management and staff couldn't do enough to make us feel comfortable and relaxed. We were married during this week and although our wedding was not at Mango Bay, we were greeted with a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine at dinner that evening. The beach at Mango Bay is a little narrow and does not accommodate very many beach chairs. The only frustrating thing during the week was the tendency of some of the people staying there to get up early, put their towels on chairs and leave them there all day even while they had gone off on the catamaran trip. In all fairness to hotel management, they did request that people not do this, but with no luck. If you're looking for a small, intimate, friendly, well run resort, Mango Bay is the place.
Mango Bay was great for location, accommodation, staff friendliness and efficiency. Food was good, but would have been a little repetitive for longer stays (we were there 8 days). The breakfast fruit was poorly displayed and somewhat boring for a Caribbean destination. If you go there in the rainy season (June/November) be aware that a dry river runs right by the hotel, and can flash flood very muddy stuff into the sea in case of heavy downpours. It makes a mess of the sea by the hotel for a few days, but you can walk 5/10 minutes up or down the beach and find a good place to swim again if that happens.
Returned on 24th July 2003 from the most fantastic holiday ever. The hotel was fabulous, clean, friendly and the food incredible, have to now diet! Spent our 21st wedding anniversary there and with the help of our friends Shireen and her staff made it truely memorable. Would return tomorrow and cannot recommend it highly enough.
The Mango Bay is small, friendly and welcoming. The rooms are clean, spacious and air conditioned. All the staff are tripping over themselves to make sure you are happy. The food is excellent with a good variety and there is plenty of it. All in all it was a wonderful break and I would very much like to go back another time!
I stayed at The Mango Bay Hotel during May 2003 with my husband for two weeks on our honeymoon. The hotel had been reccommended to us by some friends and we expecting something slighty better than we experienced.The hotel is in a very nice part of the island, with lots of little bars and restaurants in the area if you fancy a change from the hotel food. The food was good in the hotel but after the first week it became a bit boring. The restaurant staff were very attentive and the setting very nice, on the beach.The grounds were well maintained but the pool was not as clean as I felt it should have been. many guests experienced ear infections which we believe came from the pool.Overall the standard was good, and we had a lovely holiday.
My family (my Husband, two small Children and I) stayed at Mango Bay on April 27th for 2 nights after changing from another Hotel. We thought Mango Bay was a beautiful, charming Hotel.There was a bit of a problem with Check in (It took us quite a while to get into our room) in which case, the staff tried their best to make sure we were comfortable while we waited. I believe part of the problem was that their was many check outs that particular day so that slowed them down. The reception staff where very friendly especially Marcia and Shereen who was very personable.The room was a bit small for us as we needed a crib and a small bed for our children. The cleanliness was great, though. Our room overlooked the pool which is incredibly beautiful and ideal for a family with small children because of the very shallow part. I would warn people to try not to get a room facing the back, as on Sunday nights the bar across the street has karoke night that goes till 2am. The music is very loud and the singing is terrrrribllllle.We thought the meals were outstanding. Some of the restaurant and bar staff where a little impersonal but for the most part helpful. Paulette ( I think her name is) in the restaurant is such a character and very funny. They do have a childrens menu for lunch and dinner which has a great selection.It was very nice to stay right on the beach. We never got a chance to take advantage of the glass bottom boat etc. that was offered for the all inclusive price, as we were only there for 2 nights.I think overall, we would absolutley stay there again. I would highly reccomend it to families as well as honeymooners or anyone looking for a tranquil spot with great service.
