We stayed at Mango Bay Cottages for our first of 3 weeks (lucky us) in Grenada. We arrived stressed and tired, but after a shower, one of Kiddousi's tasty meals, and a good night's sleep in one of the most comfortable beds we've ever had the pleasure of lying down on, we awoke in an idyllic setting to gentle Caribbean birdsong - we'd arrived!
These simple, charming 'cottages' are in a prime spot for hours of gazing at the boats and ships going by, plus spectacular sunsets, and, over breakfast each day we had the added bonus of checking out the iguanas who gather below the restaurant deck to wait for titbits from Kiddousi.
Kiddousi (best pancakes ever!), Jacky (safe repair genius and a lovely lady) and all staff were delightful, and the whole site was spotless.
Lots of steps (only one of us whined) lead down to the little black sand beach, which is very quiet during the week, but is visited by resort and pleasure boats at weekends. Good snorkelling around the rocks at the ends of the beach too.
Niggles? Only one or two, so the following comments are meant as constructive thoughts:
The upright chairs in the rooms were not comfortable to sit on, producing numb nether regions after a short while. A couple of small easy chairs (or more comfortable uprights) would have been welcome. The balcony chairs were a bit better, but not much.
A bit more waterflow to the showers would be nice, we thought, if the local water system allows.
Kiddousi is a talented cook and produces really lovely grub (and we're not even vegetarians, let alone vegan) but the daily menu is repeated rather too often. We visited Eve's Cove restaurant (just up the road) twice, when we fancied some fish, and this nicely balanced out the veggie days.
We know that "work is in progress" in building up the business, and we wish everyone at Mango Bay great success.
PS Re. aforementioned Eve's Cove restaurant - run by two charming ladies - which was not previously on TripAdvisor. We initiated an entry, wrote a review, and then found that TA had moved them to Antigua!! We're hoping that TA will soon take note of our messages and move them back to GRENADA please!
