We had a fantastic time at Mango Bay, but it is fair to say that it is not for everyone. It is a tiny bit quirky, and very simple. It really only makes sense if you are hiring a car (which, btw, we did through L&S, their recommended car service- which worked out really well). On the other hand, we found Gino to be a very genial host, the staff responded quickly and efficiently to any small requests we had, and the snorkeling right outside the front door was fantastic. We also liked that the location was handy to both the south and north ends of the island.
Mango Bay provides beach towels, and will loan snorkeling gear. The kitchens have all the necessary dishes, pots,etc.,, but you will need to get your own food, paper towels and charcoal briquettes. We liked the selection at the grocery at Leverick Bay, Bucks at Gun Bay (but not so much at the Yacht Harbor) and the Supa Value down near the airport (esp for frozen food). Our kitchen was quirky- the main kitchen was outside, while the fridge was inside!- but we were eating outside all the time anyway.
Complaints about mosquitos are well-founded, but we found that mosquito repellent and coils helped a lot (we brought some, but it turns out you can buy them in the grocery at Leverick Bay).
We stayed in an ocean view duplex, which worked out perfectly. This is a great resort for people who want a low-key getaway. Definitely worth it!
