We only stayed a few days and spent a good portion of the time on a fishing trip. Pros -Healthy food and drink options. All drinks we had were made with real ingredients and not sugary drink mixes. They did an amazing job of cooking our spanish mackerel we caught that day in a number of ways from blackened to sashimi style. -Small size, restaurant and pool never seemed crowded. -Rooms were nicely furnished and we enjoyed that part was not air conditoned with a very comfortable hammock t...

This is a luxury hotel, so if you are looking for discounted accommodation, this is definitely not your best option. My wife and I love to travel through central America. This was our first trip to Costa Rica. We got this place because of its location and the close proximity to the Liberia Airport. Beautiful hotel in a great location with super nice staff. We felt welcomed from the minute that we got to the hotel. We didn't rent a car in advance so we got a Taxi from the airport to the hotel (... Read more

We spent our first 2 nights in Costa Rica at this hotel and loved it ! It is only 20-30 minutes from Liberia airport. The rooms were great with very comfortable beds, separate sitting rooms, large showers, and very modern amenities. We enjoyed the pool and spa (highly recommend the massages). The food was some of the best we had all week. We used the free kayaks and saw some amazing sunsets. For those using Marriott Points this hotel is a bargain. We will be back for sure.

Our family had such a fun time here! Suites are modern and very spacious; ours had a separate living area, large bedroom with comfortable beds, and a huge bathroom including a shower with double rain heads! Beautiful pool over looking the bay. All restaurants are open-air; and all of our meals were superb! They have a great buffet breakfast with so many choices including made to order omelets. A very relaxing resort.

We spent a totally relaxing week at El Mangroove. Weather was great, low to mid 90s and dry - perfect for pool and beach! The food, service, and ambiance at this resort is outstanding. Definitely a 5 star property. Only 85 rooms, so very quiet and low key. Staff get to know you personally and anticipate your wants. Really top shelf style and service overall. We love Costa Rica and will definitely go back to El Mangroove!

Very nice property. The only small negative, and it is small, is that the beach is not terribly special. Making up for that is a very nice pool area. The service, the food, the rooms, were all exceptional. We liked the place a lot. Also, a very nice gym facility, with nice cool towels, freshly chilled water , and apples for your recovery. Rooms have an outside space and an inside air conditioned space, so you can pick which you like depending on the weather. Lastly, this place is quiet. No di... Read more

My wife and I visited the Mangroove last week. It's a nice quiet hotel with very kind and gracious staff. I would've given it 4 stars except for the following points we were not ready for. Before going please consider the following - when you read about bugs know it was a serious issue for us with sand fleas. You must spray before going outside anywhere at the hotel and suggest in the room too. I cannot under emphasize this to ensure you have a pleasant stay. Second, get a room on the second... Read more

I am a Marriott Platinum member and have stayed in many places around the world. My husband and I rank this as our favorite. It is very calming and relaxing, but it is the staff that made it awesome. In other hotels, we have connected with a few staff members, but in this boutique place, every single staff member went out of their way to make us feel special. We can't wait to go back.

I can not express how wonderful our experience was with not only a nice hotel, but the people behind it, for it was them who made our ten days there so special. The food was excellent. The rooms just right. My favorite time of the day was from about 3 am to 7am. Listening and watching the world awaken to start a new day. We will be back.

This hotel was fantastic if you're looking for something similar to a retreat. The staff tried to know you and strived to make a personal connection with each and every guest. The servers at the breakfast buffet were amazing and outshined the pool servers during the day. However please realize that this hotel is somewhat secluded and it is tough to eat at other places outside of the hotel. Food in the morning is great. Food otherwise is decent. The rooms were clean and spacious. If you need... Read more
