Fabulous 8,8 From 136 reviews

Very good 8,0
The architecture is very modern, natural and beautiful and its a lovely setting on the beach and in the mangrove. It was an unusual time to be at the the resort as the coronavirus lockdowns were starting to have an impact. As a result, the hotel was very uncrowded but the hotel was running on limited staff and a number of services and amenities were not fully available. Nevertheless, the staff was very friendly and professional throughout the stay. I did have some minor maintenance issues with a clogged sink and an AC unit that was not functioning properly. It didn't seem to go to the set temperature and was alway either very cold or a little too hot and stuffy

Excellent service
El Mangroove has amazing service. Staff are attentive and so kind and gentle. We would definitely recommend this hotel.
Ginette, ca3 night family trip

This is a lovely hotel with helpful service but our stay was marred by an injury sustained with our traveling companion. She fell out of a hammock and broke her shoulder. Even though it was an accident, had the hammock not been hung over a concrete floor the injury certainly would have been less acute. Every room has hammocks and the thought that a smaller person might hit their head in such a fall is disturbing.

Outstanding Attention to customer needs. The resort restaurants were excellent but you will not get a lot of food for the price you pay for liquor drinks, you should probably buy by the bottle not by the glass if you are drinking hard liquor. Beer and Wine portions were okay. Staff was excellent!

Very attractive, stylish. Nice beach, public but not crowded. All lounges on shady side of pool are reserved to the cabana customers. Since there were no cabana customers all those lounges were unoccupied and everyone crowded on the sunny side of the pool.

Great property with friendly accommodating staff. Non-cabana poolside seating is extremely. Wake up early (before 7am) if you want to claim something poolside. Otherwise outstanding overall.

This place was like a fairytale. So beautiful, pleasant, the food was AMAZING, the employees were are so helpful and caring. I was recovering from surgery and I felt like they all went above and beyond to assist me while my husband and daughter enjoyed their excursions. I can’t wait to come back when I’m healed and actually take advantage of more that they have to offer. The location is perfect not to far from airport and right on the beach w

I loved El Mangroove! I stayed for 2 nights by myself before joining a yoga retreat in Nosara. The location was beautiful, the food was delicious, and everyone was very helpful and kind. The service was wonderful, and the bed was extremely comfortable. I really enjoyed my stay!
