Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Manchebo is the best resort/hotel on the island. The staff is fantastic, friendly, helpful and professional. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Check-in and check-out are quick and easy. We could see the ocean from our balcony and the beach is right at your front door, no having to cross the street or make a long walk to get to the beach. The beach itself is beautiful. We had a very relaxing, peaceful wonderful week at the Manchebo. This is our sixth stay at Manchebo and each one has been a great experience.
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying 8 nights at this superbly run small resort late October and early November. It is situated so that most of the rooms have a good view of a stunningly beautiful beach and the aquamarine waters just steps away, one of the most beautiful of all the places we have stayed throughout the Caribbean. The grounds and the hotel are impeccably maintained and we easily sensed the laid back feeling with a seriously good vibe, brought about by the attitude of every staff member from top to bottom. Each employee was very friendly and eager to help if asked. The GM Edgar does an extraordinary job of managing well over 150 employees, who make sure this little gem provides excellent service in a low key environment. At other Caribbean destinations we always rent a car and travel around the island checking out off site restaurants, beaches, and shops; however, Manchebo makes it soooooo easy to simply walk out of the room, go to the beach, where palapas and lounge towels await, thanks to JoJo and his compadres, and hang out there till our appetite is aroused by the wonderful aromas coming out of the restaurant's kitchens. Ike's Bistro serves a wonderful breakfast as well as dinner in an outdoor casual setting. For a cut above, the Chop House has gourmet international Caribbean fusion in a fine dining setting, where Phyllis and Magdalena provided us wonderful service and excellent meals. Joraine manages the two evening restaurants and moves gracefully between the two, checking on guests and their satisfaction with their meals, making everyone feel very special. Before breakfast, Diana makes a number of different seriously good and healthy smoothies. The head chef of all three has incorporated a number of very healthy vegetarian entrees,The beach bar and restaurant provides a wide range of lunch options, not to mentions libations, and Alejandra and Phebus simply delight in bringing anything they serve to guests who simply want to stay on the beach all day.The spa has a Balinese or Thai feel and is superb, offering a wide range of services and treatments, from traditional massage to exotic wraps, like the hot Columbian volcano wrap that draws lots of toxins out of one's body. With individual treatment/massage huts opening out to a beach and ocean with no people, one only hears the waves lapping the shore and the birds singing in the trees - absolutely wonderful!!!!The staff at the front desk not only makes one feel very welcome upon arriving, but also is very helpful with any requests: Tamara, Sandra, and Lucinda, who even took us one evening to an off site restaurant downtown, instead of a taxi - truly excellent service!!!!!!This resort is situated far enough from the main road that there is very, very little noise!!!Truly serene!!! AND no biting insects, period!!!!!Suffice it to say, this resort is in our top 10 of all resorts or villas we have experienced in the Caribbean, and we have been many times in 44 years!
10/10 Manchebo was the perfect location. In the mornings we felt like we owned the whole beach it was so secluded! The pool was beautiful and rarely used. I have been to multiple resorts in multiple countries and this place truly stands out from any of them.The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and maintained very well. We did not do the all inclusive because we like to venture out for dinners and drinks, and the location is perfect for that as well! Within walking distance you will find a very small shopping center, the best small coffee place on the island (Santos) and a casino.This resort made the trip for us. We went to other resorts and we could not have imagined staying anywhere but Manchebo.Thank you to the staff for making our trip so great!
My comments are a little clouded because we made a reservation and requested a particular room, all several months prior to our visit. We did not get the requested room (48) and the staff member (Henri) acted as if they had no record of our request. All the rooms are pretty much the same so no big deal. Note: Room 48 has the best view. If your expecting luxury you will be disappointed. Pretty much Holiday Inn size and furnishings. Our room (46) had: good view, slow draining sink, and a toile flushing problem at midnight. Was offered a different room but declined and fixed toilet. I am trying not to be negative. If you want a great beach and a quiet environment then Manchebo is for you. Be advised: a rate of $335 USD will become a daily rate of $407.18 once the fees and taxes are added.
Stayed for 7 nights all inclusive and found the complex to be very clean , and all the staff to be extremely friendlyManchebo is found in an excellent location right on the beautiful beach and has good restaurants, bars and spa / leisure facilitiesWe would definitely recommend the all inclusive option. It doesn't take too many rounds of drinks between meals to ensure you get terrific value for moneyA great relaxing week
