How to Get There
We needed to get away from it all and relax, and Manchebo was the perfect place in every way. Unassuming when you drive up, but it welcomes you into a private feeling oasis. We had a ocean view upstairs unit and the view of the beautiful Caribbean Sea and beach was wonderful. As everyone has already said in previous reviews, the employees are friendly and helpful. We ate at all the restaurants more than once and all were very good. Bartenders at Pega Pega are great, and people from all over the world visit with each other, a friendly atmosphere. Couples massage in the Spa was very relaxing. We took the taxi several times to the high rise area ($9) for 2 snorkeling trips and a fishing guide, and to gamble a couple of times, and it was so nice to come “home” to our quiet haven away from the loud music and crowded beaches. We rented a Jeep from Top Drive at the resort and went to Arikok Park and had a wonderful time, although be warned the roads over there are rough to say the least and you may have a flat (we did). We slept well and didn’t hear any noise. We hope to return, and highly recommend this awesome place if you are looking for a quiet reprieve from the real world.
We have been staying here for 15 years and will continue to stay here for another 15. We love the restaurants, the staff is phenomenal, the beach and everything else! I cannot say enough about how wonderful this resort is. If you like pilates and yoga they have have classes. They will try to accommodate you with whatever you need. I highly recommend Manchebo.
I love this place and the people. This is my second trip and I will not stay anywhere else. Boutique hotel with great restaurants and the best people. We had steak one night at Ike's and it was the most tender filet I have ever had. The flavor was divine. I cannot say enough about the people that work there. I could write something about everyone but would have to keep a log. I do remember Ada, Stephanie and Laura who were the best. We ask for dominos one afternoon at the beach bar but they did not have any at the hotel. Within 15 minutes, we were given dominos by Ada. I recognized many people from before and they remembered me. It was like coming home. If you like to be out of the masses, have a great beach, great restaurants and great people this place is for you.
So I know it’s not customary to review something before you have done it but I have been to this resort before with equally great service. So I went to book our vacation for next winter and had no question where we were going. Manchebo might be my favorite place on the planet. Anyway I booked my room and found out I was not in a good room for our needs. So I called today fully expecting them to say "sorry sir but there isn't anything we can do" and by the way they could have said that and I would have been ok with it because I want to go there so bad. But.... That is not how this resort is A very special woman named Vivian Frank (who was extremely busy) took my call. She was so nice and so accommodating. She went so far above and beyond for me to make sure I was happy I cannot thank her enough. Bottom line our vacation is now perfect and I really hope everyone reading this stays with Manchebo and if you see Vivian Frank buy her a drink!!!! Love you Manchebo and Vivian.
We booked an all-inclusive vacation for 15 family members (ages 4-79). Our initial point of contact was Tamara who is the Guest Relations Manager. She went over and above to assist us with our planning. She helped arrange excursions, made dinner reservations (both on and off site), help with transportation and pretty much helped with anything we needed. She was extremely responsive both in the planning and then once we arrived. She greeted us as we walked through the door and was helpful until the minute we left.
The food was excellent. We ate dinner at Ike's twice and in the Chophouse twice. Both were good - order seafood when you eat at Ike's and order steak and/or sushi when you eat at the Chophouse. Breakfast was great and included home made pastries, an omlette station, a huge selection of smoothies, oatmeal, fresh fruit, yogurts and other options. Lunch is served outside by the pool and beach. There was a good selection so you can try different things. The salads and sandwiches were very good.
The beach is perfect - beautiful white sand with gentle waves and blue, blue ocean. The beach faces west so it gets the sunset everyday. The location is also good. Right across from a casino, with an outdoor mall (10 or so shops including a convenience store). Not much nightlife, but that is a 10 minute cab ride ($9) north. More shops and town are about a ten minute cab ride south.
However, the people were the best. They were friendly, honest, approachable and genuine. Carolina, our favorite bartender, is the best. We loved spending time at the outside bar with her - having a few cocktails while she tried to accommodate all of our music requests. Too much fun! We will miss her. Laura, one of the hostesses, was wonderful as well. She knew we had a big group and was great at getting us a table so we could all come and go and sit together. They even moved us out to our own little deck area for our dinner the last night. The housekeeping staff was great as well. Rooms were made up impeccably each day and they worked around your schedule so as to not interfere with you when you needed to be in the room. The rooms were very nice and were all clean. There was always someone at the front desk and they were always willing to listen and help with whatever you needed.
I can't say enough about how much we loved this place and how it was the perfect fit for our family. Would be great for couples as well. Maybe not the best place for the party crowd unless, like us, you can make your own. If anyone has questions, please ask.
