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.

I was very pleased with Treasure Beach Hotel. The service is very personal and you feel more like family than a guest. The hotel itself was very quiet and relaxing without the busy "resort" feel. Breakfast was free with our booking and couldn't have been better: omelettes to order, fresh fruit and juices, toast, etc. Housekeeping was exemplary. I have stayed at many a hotel in the caribbean and this one was by far the cleanest. The housekeeping ladies were great. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a quiet, restful vacation without a bunch of noisy kids and rowdy party people. The grounds were also beautiful and very well maintained.

We found this to be an excellent all round enjoyable experience for our honeymoon:-) Excellent room - clean and tidy room. Excellent staff, all willing to help and advise. Great tasting food, drink and plentiful. Good selection of free water sports. We paid extra for the jet ski. Only grip is the second restaurant 'Cutters' which is outside and prone to flying birds after the good tasting food....lol Gym facilities were good. Evening entertainment during dinner not great but there were bands on occasions playing which was nice. During our time there were a mix of couples and small families at the resort. We were able to book a free courtesy room for 30min before the taxi arrived to freshen up as we had a late flight and were able to use the resort facilities at no extra cost until we left. Excellent resort and thoroughly enjoyed out time there.

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.

Tamarind Cove was everything we thought it would be and more. It definitely did not disappoint. The hotel decor is very suited to the islands, very classy in an understated way. What we really loved was that it's a nice smaller resort, not one of those massive 'super resorts' where you get lost just walking around. Tamarind Cove is literally right on the beach, from any room you are mere minutes from the glorious Caribbean sea. The rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated and we found them very roomy. We were on the ground level, ocean front, with our own private patio and we could literally just walk 2 seconds and we were on the beach. Amazing. The staff is super friendly and we made friends with many of them. One of them even left us a gift on our pillow on our last day! Unheard of anywhere else I have travelled. There are tons of restaurants around but be sure to walk the beach and head over to Daphnes. It's a little pricey but great food, and its owned by the hotel. A good idea is to go across the street to the Esso convenience store to buy drinks or snacks a lot cheaper and put them in your fridge. One nice touch is that the hotel staff walks around during the day and brings you a cooling eucalyptus soaked towel, then later on a piece of fresh pineapple, then around 4:00 a frozen treat! Makes you feel quite special during your stay. The best part of our stay there was definitely the people, the friendliness of the staff and the location of the hotel. Great hotel!

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.
