Trip Report Mango Bay Resort, Virgin Gorda Report

Jump to last reply

We just returned from a lovely week at Mango Bay Resort on Virgin Gorda. We had their "just for two" package that included a jeep for a week, in room massages for both of us and dinner at a lovely restaurant. When we arrived a bottle of wine was waiting in the fridge for us as a welcome gift.

Mango Bay Resort is centrally located and close to town. We liked the location. We got one of the one-bedroom beachfront villas and loved being able to step off our patio right onto the beach. The villas are a little worn, but still in good shape overall. The internet was included and worked pretty well most days - some better than others and I think that is an island issue, not an issue with the resort. Loved the beach toys included - kayaks, floats, snorkel gear. Very important for us was a large covered porch with comfortable chairs to sit and read in the shade. There was a nice tv with a multitude of channels, but we only turned it on once during the week.

Our complimentary dinner was at The Rock - one of the better restaurants on the island. If you go early and aren't there for the music, ask to sit in the rocks out back.

We also enjoyed "Hog Heaven" - a simple restaurant with a view extrodinaire. Simple food done well - excellent barbque. Because the lighting is poor, I would go for lunch or an early dinner so you can see what you are eating.

Not the most luxurious resort - but then again it's nowhere near the price of LIttle Dix or Bitter end either. Daily maid service was included. The onsite manager (Geno) was very helpful and very friendly. The location, view and quick access to water has put it on our "return to" list. A very good value and beautiful setting.
