Good3.0 / 5
Expensive and less than great service
I booked the property via Hotels.com and the listed features certainly let me to believe that the room included a furnished balcony. At $324.00 a night - it did not. I asked for an upper floor quiet room and was assigned a first floor room directly across from the bar. We were woken up by bar noise the first and second night. Then there was the skunk that sprayed right in front of the screened (no other covering) window at 4:00 am. We spent the balance of the night with damp wash cloths on our faces to reduce the smell and the burning eyes/throats. The beach is nothing spectacular, filled with motorized boats that reduce any chance of seeing turtles. Costa Rica has many beautiful beaches but this was is only fair. It seemed that the primary focus the resort was to keep you at the pool drinking alcohol. You don't need to go all the way to Costa Rica to get that. I have stayed in many hotels booked via Hotels.com and for the most part, have received excellent treatment. Not at the El Mangroove. I do not recommend. I have attached photos of their beach.

Very enjoyable stay at El Mangrove
I really enjoyed my stay at El Mangrove. It is remote so if you want to venture out past the resort you'll need a car. The grounds were beautiful, the breakfast and dinners were very good. Coffee was great. We did drive to Playa del Cocoa to tour and shop. If you really want to relax, enjoy the calm water and pool and eat nice meals, this is a great stay. If you like night life and more selection of places to eat, it might not be the place for you.

Amazing!
The place and food/drinks are amazing! Beautiful view and calmed beach. If you want to visit other beaches I suggest you hire a local boat (the tours at the hotel are super pricey). If you go there probably you will not need to go anywhere else. Three days is more than enough to to enjoy the place. Bring a lot of $ to Costa Rica! It is an expensive place, beers and drinks cost around 5-10dlls or more.

I loved this hotel. Chic and beautiful, super nice, but totally chill. My only complaint is that the pool is not cooled. It is too hot to not cool the pool.
