A secluded oasis
We stayed at many properties on our two week trip to Costa Rica and this was by far our favourite! The staff are extremely friendly and go out of their way to make your stay special. As a gold status member with Marriot we were lucky to get an upgraded room as well as a free room service breakfast which was an amazing touch! The property itself is very relaxing and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. I highly recommend having a steak cooked on a Himalayan rock salt slab from the restaurant. It’s delicious.
Luxury at its finest
This resort was impeccable and the service was superb. The beach is volcanic so it’s black. Its beautiful but not for everyone. The water at the beach is crystal clear. The beach is a beautiful uninhabitable beach where you can walk for at least a mile. There’s also trails through the treed area for walking., bike riding or horseback riding. You pay a $30 room fee per day for activities. The chaise lounges by the pool are so comfy and relaxing. Yes...very little shade...sometimes because of the wind gusts you were prohibited from using the umbrellas. Usually you’d be able to find a lounge chair on the beach under the trees. We are not fans of eating hotel food. But the food here was amazing. The breakfast buffet had everything you could possibly want. Lunch at the pool bar was good and fun. Bar tenders were all so pleasant and made sure you were having a great vacation. Offered many tips on want to do and where to go. The rooms were simple but adequate. There were no balconies but you had a covered porch area with a hammock for relaxing. Beds and pillows extremely comfy! So beautiful waking up each morning to the sounds of the howler monkeys and the birds. There are no restaurant or things to walk to at El Mangroove. I’d suggest a car. Its easy driving around there and lots of little places to explore. Yes..I’d go back in a heart beat. One of my favorite destinations. Adventure and beach and amazing food choices....all so fresh and delicious! Pure Vida
I’m currently here on vacation with my family. I cannot day enough great things about the resort and the staff here. The staff had gone above and beyond to accommodate during the stay. Iris, Andres, and Marianna were are so great. The resort itself is stunning. It’s also in a great location and convenient to a lot of great restaurants. Highly recommend staying at this place!!!
One night of quiet bliss...
Having had our Flight cancelled. We stayed at El Mangroove for one night. It was a very quiet and peaceful stay. Nice long pool and black sand beach. Rooms were very comfortable and the sitting room was very unique. Restaurant by the pool was good albeit a little pricey. Service was excellent! Would consider this a great place to stay if you want to unwind and disconnect in an eco-friendly environment. Pura Vida!
We stayed four nights at El Mangroove. It was very peaceful. The two restaurants were very good. The setting on the beach was nice. The staff was excellent. The staff were uniformly capable and friendly. The room was comfortable. The only disappointment was that the living room area of the suite is not air conditioned. When it is 90 degrees, it is not so refreshing to sit there.
