Great location, beautiful place

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Pros: The location and architectural design, beach is lovely, especially if you traveling with kids the beach is great and very safe for swimming.
Cons: Food price performance in not good at the restaurants.
Location: Nice surrounding with lots of activities.
Very nice place with a modern design and amazing rooms. The staff is well trained and helpful, morning buffet is good, and room service is also recommended. Lunch and dinner at any of the two restaurants is not so good, because portions are very small and quite expensive, so the price performance in not good on food, also not to many options to choose from.

Nice hotel, GREAT staff!

Posted Mar 31, 2015
Pros: Hotel was nice, restaurants had great food (although a little pricey), and spa was wonderful.
Cons: We had a late checkout, and the maid still cleaned our room, so I felt bad that it would need to be cleaned again. Seemed to be lack of communication
Location: It's a 15 minute ride to the nearest town with restaurants and shops, but there is an on-site tour operator
Nice modern hotel, close to the beach but not close to anything else. The hotel staff are GREAT, very personable and friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome.

Perfect boutique hotel!

Posted Mar 31, 2015
El Mangroove is an amazing luxury boutique hotel. Looks and feel just like the photos. So much to do in the area or do nothing and relax. Perfect balance of relax and reflection plus adventure and exploration.

One Night Stay

Posted Mar 24, 2015
Pros: All hotel facilities were excellent.
Cons: Check in service was a bit forced and not efficient.
Location: Located within 30 minutes of Liberia airport, with many beaches within a 1 hour drive. Also, many boating and water related options.
Very clean and modern hotel with a very hip feel. Great place to relax by the pool for a few days in the Costa Rican sun.

2nd trip back.

Posted Mar 15, 2015
I left in January after 4 days of stay, And felt that I have an un finished business with El Mangoove. I came back to find it as beautiful as I left it, great service, food, facility and charming. The only thing I was kind of disappointed of was the coca cola cane that was left by house keeping. We checked into our room to see that it was left on the stand. Definitely not something we were expecting, I hope they pay better attention and not miss..... Would still go back.

Sin mosquitos sería el paraíso.

Posted Feb 9, 2015
Pros: El entorno natural, la comodidad de las habitaciones, la playa, la cortesía del personal.
Cons: El precio desmesurado del traslado en transporte del hotel a restaurante cercanos (los taxis resultan menos caros). Fumigar más respetando la ecología
Location: Buena ubicación, aislada. Cerca no hay nada, salvo el estupendo restaurante Abbocatto. Excelente la excursión en barco a la puesta del sol.
Es un hotel de playa diferente. La oferta gastronómica es excelente, la piscina exótica pero buena y personal amablevy eficiente. La playa, pública, es amplia, decarena negra fina y el mar calmo. Como se construyó sobre un manglar, al atardecer aparecen muchos mosquitos contra los que es difícil protegerse. No llegan a las habitaciones ni al restaurante.
