Concierge.com's insider take:
Formerly the Mango Bay, this all-inclusive property reopened in 2004 as an adults-only resort and spa with personality to match. All 52 roomy units are outfitted in tropical decor with balconies that face a white-sand lagoon, one of three pools, or lush gardens. There are just enough freebie perks to satisfy resortgoers without breaking the bank, including sailboats, sea kayaks, and free water-taxi service to Lover's Beach, across the lagoon. The Creole-style restaurant, Frangipani, hosts weekly barbecues (November to April), and the lagoonside bar doles out drinks at the weekly manager's reception. Guests staying longer than seven nights get two free treatments at the spa. Devil's Bridge, a popular natural attraction, is a brisk 40-minute walk from the resort, a 10-minute walk from Lover's Beach, or quick car ride away.
