"Under the Mango Tree the American's are worried about Birds? The English? or Beach beggers? lol Get real please."
Mango Bay We have not been to Barbados before, so hereâ€™s what we discovered about our chosen hotel and the people in general after our two week holiday here. Its a medium sized, family run hotel with great staff & management, and an owner who often steps â€˜quietlyâ€™ into the restaurant for meals ïŠ Trips/Excursions (please also read about the Public Transport!) The Hotel can arrange any trips for you â€“ they have a list of â€˜to do tripsâ€™, and these are on top of your own Holiday company arranged trips, so no shortage of things to do here ïŠ ! Just take your time choosing how many trips you fancy doing. The rooms: Usual hairdryer, coffee & tea making, iron, room safe, TV, & an effective aircon, all part of your â€˜All Inclusiveâ€™. Along with usual Shampoo, conditioner & other lotions, soap & nice fresh white towels all waiting to be found in their respective rooms, plus fresh, soft blue beach / pool towels. Nothing an issue here: (and in my opinion only? the odd American for reasons unknown except to themselves, appear to hold a negative towards the English, the local birds & the beach beggers ! - maybe they have never been overseas?, yet we usually find the US guys/girls friendly & approachable especially over in the Bahama's. Don't know why some from this continent are behaving differently here, but thankfully not too many of them are.) On with the review; e.g. if you need a fridge for drinks or medication, simply ask reception. The hotel is slightly unusual here possibly because they are looking to give that interaction with guests, trying to match up your requests, be it help on local transport, private or public (on the reception side), food requests (on the restaurant side see Marcia, sheâ€™s great) or on the pool or watersport side, pop over to the watersport kiosk e.g. disabled or injured guests can ask for pool noodles for support in the pool, or perhaps not a confident person in the water?, or using them just for fun in the pool. They have body boards if you are young at heart, snorkelling gear which you will want, because the numbers and variety of fish are amazing along the artificial reef about 30 meters from the shore line! If you are looking for maybe something more, they will guide you to the activity â€“ some are part of the Mango Bay All inclusive, others are not. Pedaloâ€™s, glass bottom boat & Catamaran trip to spot turtles â€“ which youâ€™ll see some 30 metres past the reef anyway, and are all very enjoyable to do in any event and of course are all included here. What about all the noise? So yes, at the weekend (especially on Sunday) some very colourful, lively, talented local folk put on a street party just a 100 metres or yards away from Mango Bay, outside the aptly named â€œOne Love Barâ€ â€“ they call this â€˜Limingâ€™. It does get lively in a very friendly way, but by midnight or just after it all dies down quite rapidly in our experience during our 2 week stay in March, and was certainly not an issue for us. Fantastic singers & performers and a very enjoyable experience in our opinion. Mango Bayâ€™s beach and pool: Youâ€™ll find both pool & beach have the Sunbeds out in both areas, many with parasols. If you cant find a parasol or even a sun lounger because they appear taken, which is a rare event, down to some early risers trying to make the most of the sun, then you just need to pop over to the watersports kiosk and ask for these to be placed where-ever you want them. The bar is a convenient 2 or 3 metres away from the pool if you get thirsty â€“ but its not a swim up style bar - its a walk a few feet job :-) There are no pool or beach guards available, though staff are always about as well as guests. All the Barbados beaches are public beaches which means you will have the â€˜sophisticatedâ€™ Bagian beach sales guys coming along about 1 every 2 hours â€“ with equally nicer goods for sale from Mr Reasonable, Mr Good Value etc. They are pleasant and will leave you in peace when issued with the â€˜sorry, no thanksâ€™ or â€˜maybe later in the weekâ€™ statement. "By all means have a chat with them . . as we did because good manners go a long way out here ! & again In our experience these guys are definitely not your usual â€˜roughâ€™ types, they are genuinely very friendly people, as are the locals out on the street. The local people out on the street are simply the very best and love to chat with warm affection with we Brits, especially so if out in the countryside :-) to our surprise many have worked and lived in the UK." The beach has a shallow 1 or 2 foot shelf area extending out about 3 to 5 feet, followed by a steep slope dropping you suddenly to about 3 feet in depth. Just be aware of the steepish slope as most slip down it, including us, until you get used to where it is, but its nice warm water so long as it doesnâ€™t go up your nose if you go down on your behind â€“ lots of laughâ€™s ! Lots of colourful fish await you ! Mango Bay Food & Restaurant: In the reviews we couldnâ€™t understand what many were saying here - buts its simple! They ask you at breakfast, what time when you would like to take Lunch & Dinner. I know itâ€™s a bit unusual !, - but it works great and it means the chefâ€™s are ready to go when you place your order with the waiter. Oh yes, most is freshly prepared for you, so expect a short wait for your nicely presented choice to arrive. What happens if you are late? like we were on occasion due to the trips? No problem folks, they still take you to your table and you get fed - yummy yummy. ïŠ Or what if you forget like we sometimes did ?? no problem â€“ you still get to eat. They also server English High Tea too ! â€“ thatâ€™s not seen very often these days back home! So, having survived figuring out when you want lunch & dinner, you are taken to a table with wonderful views, some overlooking the Caribbean, some have more of a garden view where you can watch the humming birds etc, and some are inside where its cooler and quieter, also with great views, but away from the colourful wildlife. If you are diabetic like me, just let reception in the hotel know, and they will make arrangements for your meals to be at a specific time if this is needed. Please note that the standard menu does not offer diabetic or coeliac items, but I would suggest that this can be pre-arrange to a small degree as we saw one lady who had requested some coeliac foods which appeared the next day. Unlike a large complex that is catering for many hundreds of guests where special diets can be accommodated for more easily, smaller hotels will find this difficult to achieve, however Mango Bay will do their best to help from our personal experience. My crazy food request: I love â€˜corn on the cobâ€™ but never saw any. Steak, Chicken, plenty of Fish etc including loose corn, all cooked to perfection here, along with the â€˜how would you like your steak sirâ€™, and a Steak knife placed down â€“ a very effective, sharp knife indeed I might add !, but I love the â€˜getting your paws on the foodâ€™ bit â€“ like a typical English King in the movies - or in or case chef's. ïŠ So . . . Marcia (the restaurant manager) comes along checking if everyone is happy with the chef (lovely Mary is head chef with Peter helping out when Mary takes a day off), so I asked why do they not have Corn on the cob here? (Caribbean corn is amazing if youâ€™ve not tried it). Youâ€™d like Corn on the Cob sir? No problem sir â€“ smiled Marcia, would tomorrow evening be alright sir? Yes please I replied! And sure enough, the next evening we ordered our starters, and Chicken dish for the main mealâ€“ thinking they had forgotten, as they had not said anything, but wow, the waiter came back and asked would I like the corn on a separate plate or with the chicken sir?â€“ it was freshly prepared corn on the cob, and I decided on the plate with the Chicken. Amazing and delicious. The Birds, the birds ! â€“ Alfred Hitchcock would be rolling in laughter in our opinion, what wonderful colourful birds they always have in the Caribbean ! How anyone can dislike or complain about them we just donâ€™t get it ? Its no different on any other Caribbean island, unless of course you have not yet been to any other Caribbean island to experience them? Yes they may have a drink from my milk jug if I allow them to, but if you donâ€™t want them around they soon learn ! We had our little pals come to our table each day and we had them wait there until we gave them some crumbs, while we took lots of close up photos of them â€“ nice slow hand movements and they are happy â€“ fast movements and they fly off in fear. You choose! ïŠ Either way these birds know their table manners and are very clean when it comes to â€˜what they do whereâ€™ â€“ in fact I donâ€™t think they do anything unless they go out to sea for it lol ! The weather: Its warm & sunny here in March, but not too warm, nor humid where it leaves you with blisters on the toes and feeling like you are going to wilt. A good few clouds but they donâ€™t make much difference, so itâ€™s a great plus point to always have a nice steady breeze to help keep you cool day after day. Getting out and about: In our experience it is perfectly safe to go out, and we definitely recommend enjoying a walk about town and down the side streets. Holetown has lots of big name shops, Cartier â€“ the Panther collection is a show stopper!, Boss, Brietlang â€“very nice dive watches in here Buddies ïŠ, to mention just a few to check out. The beach can be walked for miles in either direction if your wish, and this allows you to peek into the many other hotels along the sea front. Youâ€™ll also meet many Brits walking their dogs, who live out here too. Weekends are when the Liming begins, with Sunday night offering you a chance to see the local talent in action all of which is just a few yards away from Mango Bay outside â€˜One Love Barâ€™. Each dancer has a pot for any donations you may wish to give them for their efforts. Youâ€™ll also spot Police dotted around to ensure everything stays friendly. Mango Bay is pretty much in the centre of the Barbados west coast so a good base to explore the island with everything within easy reach in half an hour, so whatâ€™s the Transport like??: This has to be the next best Barbados experience ever! We would strongly suggest that you do not need to hire a car on this island because the Public transport is so darn good and easy to use in our opinion. Use the Blue government bus for total safety, or take a ride on the wild side using the Yellow Reggae Buses â€“ so named because you will, in many cases get a taste of real loud reggae music! Either bus only costs $2 Barbadian and you can go for miles, hop off at the next town or go further away. Then when you are done, simply wait for another bus to take you back - simple! Do take your map, or plan what you want to see and then hop on a bus. The yellow buses stick to the main routes and run every five minutes or sooner!! The government Blue buses run every hour but run down all roads & past all the attractions you may want to see. The Blue Government bus from Holetown takes you to the Bus terminal at either Speighstown or Bridgetown but goes further â€“ just ask the great drivers where they are going next ïŠ. The Bridgetown terminal is dead centre in Bridgetown by the amazing harbour & moorings, along with lots of shops to explore. In the Government bus terminals youâ€™ll find lots of â€˜bus baysâ€™, each with large clear plaques stating where each bus will take you â€“ this really is so easy to use â€“ you have got to give it a go! Simply ask the driver to let you know when to get off for the attraction you want to see if your heading into the lush green countryside. Mango Bay give you a map of the island so planning this out is easy. While waiting at the terminal for the bus to come and take you to the next place, you will meet many friendly local Barbadians as well as local Brits / Aussies and other nationalities who live here. The Yellow reggae buses will drop you off at any town, bus stop or at many of the attractions you want to see like Ouistins Friday night fish night or Mullins*, but they donâ€™t stop in the Gov. Terminals, though they are stopping a minutes walk away from these. Just ask the reggae bus guys, if they are going to wherever you are wanting to go, and they will say. Next you have the white private bus that can be organised by the Hotel and but cost more, and then you have the taxiâ€™s who you will need to barter with over how many $$$â€™s to get to wherever. There are 2 main currencies here, US dollars & Barbadian dollars. Which dollar works out better to use, will depend on the exchange rate at the time you buy them. Currently One US Dollar is worth 2 Barbadian and this rate is set by their Barbados gov. and does not fluctuate. Would we go again? We have just tried to book again! for next year, but Mango Bay are already fully booked for the month we wanted to go. * Mullins â€“ around March 7th 2018 a large wave struck this side of the island and sadly â€˜took outâ€™ the front of Mullins fish restaurant where it overlooks the sea. Hopefully they can get up and running again in the near future.
"Great all round."
We loved our stay at Mango Bay, lovely people, lots to see and do and fabulous food! Rooms a pretty standard but its the small things they do that make you feel vey looked after and spoilt; -Turndown service -Fresh beach towels delivered to your room every evening -Cold peppermint towels delivered on the beach -Drinks service on the beach. I was concerned about it being All Inclusive and only having 1 restaurant but the menu changed every night and it was table service which I loved! (except for casual nights on Wed & Thurs) Drinks were excellent quality and the bar staff are really helpful and excellent. the only things I would have liked are a fridge in the room and maybe more indoor activities for the little lady (who's 8). BUT there was lots to do including the boat trips, snorkelling and other water sports that were included. Reception staff could not help enough - we would definitely return. Thanks for a wonderful holiday, we didn't want to leave :o)
"Beach of local baggering"
My wife and I traveled to many Caribbean resorts and by far this was one of the worst trips we have had of being bothered daily on the beach while trying to enjoy time of relaxation. It starts the moment you start your day at breakfast, the beach vendors actually stand and stare or try to make conversation with you while you are trying to enjoy your morning. I had a verbal confrontation with one of the jet ski vendor because I booked with another vendor, who would know that there is rules that you can only talk to certain vendors, which I found is not case at all. On our second day of arrival one of the locals tried to sell a coconut bird feeder , we politely said no thanks , this lead to him standing and staring at us at our breakfast for the next few days and hanging the bird feeder in front of us in a tree about two meters from our table. This lead to us having to leave our breakfast early. I understand they are trying to make a living with selling their products, and usually we purchase some, but when it is daily some times three times and then to make rude comments for not purchasing, this is totally unacceptable.I would rather go somewhere else where I can sit and enjoy my morning without being hassled from a vendor almost a arms length from my table, or fell like you are going to get into a physical confrontation over trying to enjoy your holiday with a 30 minute jet ski ride. Most resorts will not allow the beach vendors to stand right beside the breakfast severing area or stand under the sun huts to get out of the rain ,while you are trying to enjoy your holiday,so you have to be constantly told to by there products. For this reason I would not recommend this hotel! As for the hotel it good but not great. Staff are very friendly and food it at times repetitive.
"Amazing hotel and holiday in Barbados "
We arrived back this week from an incredible family stay at Mango Bay. The hotel is in a brilliant position right in Holetown by the shops and chattel huts. The hotel itself is small and the staff are really friendly and accommodating. The kids absolutely loved the watersports and free scuba diving lessons and the movie nights. The food was of a really high quality and the batmen made the best â€˜surpriseâ€™ cocktails!! We loved this hotel and canâ€™t wait to return.
"Perfect choice for first timers to Barbados."
This is not a hotel for those looking for seclusion but is a well run, happy, thriving environment with staff that could not do more for their guests - I'd say the welcoming, open attitude of the staff set the tone for the guests and made for a pleasurable experience all round. The beach is beautiful, clean and safe with access to perfect swimming conditions and a multitude of watersports. Before going I read negative reviews here about the food so was concerned - I needn't have been. The food and service was faultless throughout and to a consistently high standard. Aware of the comments here about local noise affecting sleep I organised an upgrade and we were given one of the small apartments overlooking the garden. It was spotlessly clean but the decor was somewhat dated - otherwise we were very happy to stay there. The hotel is perfectly located to explore the local area, being in the centre of Holetown and I would recommend it to visitors of all ages. We went on several trips organised via reception all of which ran like clockwork. Bajans are lovely people - we had a wonderful time!
