I pretty much agree with the previous reviews. Mago has a fantastic location and is so unique. Too bad more attention isn't being paid to details. There are workers around there but they just don't seem to be accomplishing anything. What a shame! We paid less than $200US/night, so for us the price was right. Our worst complaint was the mattress. It was thin and hard, obviously hadn't ever been replaced since the hotel was built. I always take earplugs when I travel so I did have to pop them in when the sounds of Soufriere rolled up the mountainside. Be ready to hike when you go to your room and take a flashlight. Except for the views, do NOT believe any of the photos you see on their brochure. You won't find that white sand beach anywhere on St. Lucia. Maybe it was taken on Anguilla or a more northern island.
Positives: The views can't be beat. We ended up having dinner there 2 nights and were quite impressed though breakfast was the exact same every day. The price we paid was right, we had privacy. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately, if more attention had been paid to details, we wouldn't have had to ask the staff for anything.
If we had a comfortable mattress, we'd go back since we do like to stay away from all-inclusives and busy hotels.
This is NOT the place for a honeymoon!
