The hotel is very hard to rate so I will try to write a valid review for everyone thinking of staying here. This is the first time I have ever stayed in a resort in my life, I have to admit it is a great feeling to just get up after a meal and not have to pay everytime as well as be able to enjoy the open bar most of the time. But with this hotel, the staff were either VERY friendly or seemed to hate you, walking around it seemed most people look at you in hate (outside the resort). The food most nights was either the best thing you ever had, or you go hungry as the menu was limited only to 4 different entrees per night and the portion sizes were TINY. For the restaurant, at dinner time there was a dress code, if not followed perfectly they reject you and you go hungry (they dont care you already paid for the meal). Now for the rooms, we had the ocean view room and it was very scenic to look at every day and watch the sunset, they did a great job cleaning it. However, while having a shower room service broke the latch on our door and barged in. Took 3 days and repeat annoyances to the staff to get it fixed. My dad has stayed in Cuba a couple times and seems like a better experience. I would not return to Mango Bay. Last note: Beds are rock hard and the "king" bed is 2 twin beds put together.. ouch

We just returned from a 5 night stay at the resort. I do have to agree with a few prior reviews I had read about the resort being an older one and in need of some work and repair. Saying that we were pleased with hotel staff and their assistance with our last minute wedding...the coordinator was exceptional. Food was good, mixed drinks definately lacked flavour. If you are looking for a beach...don't stay here. Stay at the other Almond Beach Resort 15 minutes away. I am in my 40's and felt that this resort is for the much older vacationing couples. I dont think I would stay again as their are many more resorts that offer more within this price range.

Our stay at Discovery Bay was perfectly pleasant. The room was lovely, with a view overlooking the Caribbean. Everything was clean and tidy. It might not be a super luxurious resort, but it had all the necessities. We especially appreciated the mini-fridge as we did not partake in the all-inclusive meal program. Our only mishap in Barbados was not related to our hotel stay at all, our baggage did not make the connection in Miami and so we were without our stuff for 24hours. Hard to enjoy the beach when we are dressed for Montréal winter! I would recommend always taking an emergency carry-on bag with the essentials as it seems to be a common occurrence. Especially with flights which connect through Miami.

This hotel was ideal for our purpose which was a laid back vacation. You should not expect the glittz of a major a mainland resort - the pace in the Caribbean is much slower, Do take a room with an ocean view it is lovely to sit on your balcony overlooking the sea. We found the staff to be most helpful at all times. The breakfasts, complete with mini newspapers, were very good but we found the other meals to be somewhat expensive. The beds were comfortable. The only negative thing I can say is that it was difficult getting out of the sea. There was a big dip at the edge of the water which was very stoney. The sea was warm and colorful and there is a safe swimming area with floats to which to swim out,

This was our first vacation to Barbados. We were told that The Fairmont was, bar none, one of the premier hotels on the island. We decided to go this route, rather than an all-inclusive resort, to allow us the flexibility to explore different dining arenas and really take in the island. Upon arrival, we were unimpressed with the resort. It had an older feel and the staff were certainly not overly friendly. The oceanview from our room was definitely the highlight of this hotel. The prices were ABSURD!!! I wish someone had informed us that BREAKFAST runs $75 AMERICAN DOLLARS per day!!! So you can expect a $300-$500 dinner bill per evening, to include a bottle of wine. So, buyers beware! You will break the bank unless you have an ENDLESS cash flow. Lastly, the off-season is VERY QUIET. The hotel was at less than half capacity, therefore whether we dined at the hotel restaurant or one of the many restaurants on the island, we were maybe one of three other diners. It is a beautiful island with gorgeous beaches, but I would rethink an all-inclusive on the Southern part of the island where it is busier.
