Don’t know if i will comw back!
I was delayed in reception for 3 hours, i was early but there was no way they could do anything to help. And they kept saying almost and still had me sat for over 45 min infront of the reception people before they could give us our room.

Very Good8.0
Hotel was very nice. No real complaints there. We felt they could have done a better job of letting us know about the things to do in the local area. They offer a lot of excursions through them and it felt a bit like they were marketing you their products. But honestly was a bit of a bit pick on our part. Overall very nice hotel and very professional pleasant staff.

A breath of fresh air close to the airport
My daughter and I stayed at El Mangrove for two nights following a long stay in Nosara. We were pleasantly surprised. The property was very nice and had a fun vibe. The rooms were Marriott nice equipped with hairdryer which we hadn't seen one in nearly two weeks and the beds were very comfortable. Staff was welcoming and kind. We took a half day snorkeling tour that Eduardo and Martine accompanied us on. The boat ride was amazing and Eduardo was an excellent tour guide. Snorkeling was fun, we also island hopped to walk through beautiful caves. I highly suggest spending the money and taking the tour. Food was pretty good a little spendy for what it was. I'm glad we stayed here for two nights as a close spot to stay near the airport, but I probably wouldn't stay there longer, we we're pretty confined to the hotel and there isn't a whole lot to do right there on the property itself.

Sophisticated and Fun Costa Rican Retreat
The staff at El Mangroove go above and beyond. Everyone we came in contact with immediately remembered our names and greeted us with kindness every day. The accommodations are perfectly appointed and comfortable. The Bearth Spa is a wonderful relaxing retreat. The pool and restaurants were the epitome of relaxation and beauty. The choice to go right to the beach was a wonderful added bonus. Jennifer, Edward, Kevin, Paola, Isidro are just a few of the hotel staff that made our stay relaxing. The food was consistent and diverse - interesting dishes with some local flair to 'comfort' food well prepared. The smoothies were a favorite for their natural and delicious ingredients! I would return here in a heartbeat.
