We just returned from a week at Mango Bay and I wish we could have stayed longer. We absolutely loved it! Comfortable sweet cottage on lovely grounds overlooking the water. Nicely laid out floor plan with porch and small kitchenette. We brought a few food items from the states as we made our own breakfasts and lunches. A quick bus trip into town for supplies like bread, jam, fruit, RUM and soft drinks added to our stash. We ate dinner with Kai and Anja and the other guests when ever possible, Kai is a good cook and highlighted the local fish and produce. We both really enjoyed the meals and since the hosts ate with the guests it seemed like we were staying at someone's home and felt very comfortable. Hint: bring your own ground coffee from home! The cottage has a coffee maker with filter, but it was near impossible to find decent coffee in town. NesCafe' is everywhere! Kai said that Grenada produces a limited amount of local coffee and when it is gone, it's gone. Bring your own and don't be disappointed. The basically private beach was nice and there is fabulous snorkling right in front. We were surprised by the variety of fish and sponges: tangs, parrot fish, blue wassie, black sea urchins, sargent majors, barrel sponge, fan coral, etc. Nice clear water and coral heads near surface so you can really see the fish up close. Do take the local bus into town, very cheap and easy to catch. Also don't miss the Fish Friday in the town of Gouyauv (Spelling??) very close by. That was a highlight for us. Kai took us on a day trip to several places of interest: Belmont Estates (cocoa), River Antione distillery (rum), the nutmeg processing station and a spice farm. He knows TONS of info on Grenada, plants and how each place works, we had a great time. I can honestly say we will by returning in the future as it was one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever experienced.
