The owner and staff were especially helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Not a swish upmarket resort but a very personal, friendly, relaxing place.

We booked for 4 nights at one of the standard beachfront bures, wanting to get a quiet and relaxing holiday. Firstly, we were put in the wrong room and brought this up with reception. The staff were very friendly and cooperative about this and explained that we were not at fault at all. Ed was also very helpful and generous, as he put us in another resort for one night and then upgraded us to the superior beachfront bure. The bures had a very nice and cosy feeling to it, with a lovely outdoor shower. The staff was also on hand to help carry our luggages from the reception to our rooms. Throughout our stay, we noticed that the staff were very friendly, getting to know everyone and making you feel like you are really on a holiday. They were always around to answer any questions we had. The various equipment for water based activities were also in good condition and made this resort very worth it by being so close to the clear water. Even though there is only one restaurant/bar, it made it very convenient to get what you want without walking around and wasting time. We were able to sit at the open restaurant and watch the beautiful sunset, whilst eating our meals there. There was also an extensive cocktail list, which is worth trying out everything on that list, made by the friendly bar staff. Even though it was a short stay, we are already planning to make another trip and hope to see everyone that we met at the resort.

The resort is gorgeous. Gardens are well maintained, plenty of great outdoor furniture, and hammocks. All the staff are wonderful. Kayaks are great. Volleyball and night entertainment is fun. Table tennis table is the worst I've seen and needs to be thrown out... does not even have legs. Pool table is pretty bad as well, but playable. The main issue I have with Mango Bay is the $50 room credit that was supposed to be credited to our bill, and was not. I noticed that the credit was missing after I payed the bill and told them about it. but they chose to ignore me. They also failed to include crab race winnings (luckily I noticed that before I payed the bill). There is only one place to eat and it is at the resort restaurant. Prices are about the same as in the restaurants in Sydney. Closest shops and local food is at least 15 km away by either bus or taxi. Local food is at least half the price (sometimes a third). The bed in our beach front room was a queen and not a king. The room was nice, and outdoor shower is great. If it wasn't for the $50 overcharge I would have given the resort 4 stars.

We stayed with 5 nights with our 10 and 12 yr old. We had a great time and the staff would know you by name. No kids club but our kids enjoyed everything from swinging chairs, crab race to volleyball. We liked it better than plantation island. Moses our night security man very vigilant. Good value for money! 5 days about right for this place. A car is good but they offer lots of trips on and off water anyway. Good food and free wifi a bonus. Beds comfy. Yes agree the facilities could do with an upgrade like new table tennis and pool table and better blankets and pillows on bed. And good scrub of doors and lick of paint here and there. All in all a great place with amazing views and great pool and Fiji music. Staff are amazing and seem happier and friendlier than plantation island.

I booked a 6 bed dorm and ended up having the entire room for me for the first 4 nights, after that I had to share it. They offer a great variety of acitivities, however, it was off season and some of the acitivites were cancelled due to not enough sign-ups. The restaurant is very expensive and not for backpackers. If you wanna buy your own food you have to take a bus to the next village and there is no fridge or kitchen. All in all I enjoyed my stay there with the friendly staff.
