My boyfriend and I spent six evenings in one of Mango Bay's amazing beachfront bures during the month of December. The place exceeded our expectations! Firstly, the beach is nice and the water is crystal clear. The beach boasts a reef to snorkel to, a must activity. Our bure was adorable and equipped with a lovely outdoor shower. The bure had a cute, whimsy charm that I have never had the pleasure of experiencing elsewhere. Since it was the slow season due to rain, we were some of the only visitors on site.The staff, owner and his son were super friendly and attentive, trying to make sure we remained occupied with activities (snorkeling, fishing, kayaking) and amazing meals. Speaking of meals, O-M-G SO good. Lunch and dinner was always fresh and the staff even served us a Mahi Mahi that my boyfriend caught on a fishing excursion. Straight from the ocean to our table (in under an hour!) So stoked we came here and got to experience it.

I used the reviews here to book Mango Bay Resort and they were all on-point. This is a great resort - amazing beach and rooms, low key, great vibe. At first, it was a little odd that there was no bar or restaurant, but in truth, it would change the entire experience and I think it works better this way. We went here with another couple, and we all characterized this as the best vacation we've had in years. Mango Bay Resort is centrally located, too, so we had an easy time getting around. (Renting a car on the island is a must - we used Mahogany Car Rental and they were fantastic as well.) Gino was super accommodating - everything was just easy, breezy here. This is a no-fuss place and while I typically like a little more "luxe", the location and value of this resort is amazing. Also enjoyed that other guests were easy going, friendly and interesting. I would go back here in a heart beat. I was worried about the mosquitoes too, based on other reviews - I typically get eaten alive by them. There are mosquitoes and if you don't keep the sliders shut, they will get in your room. I suggest going to amazon and spending the 15 USD on a net just for peace of mind/in case. I did, and never used it. I also brought bug spray and used this in the evenings when I needed to. One more note: snorkeling here is fantastic. They have masks and fins, but I suggest bringing your own mask if you are picky about that (theirs are gently used - fine for a quick snorkel, but I bought a new one for 25 USD at a dive shop and was a game changer).
