A visually stunning hotel
A visually stunning hotel. Top notch staff, the best trained we encountered in CR. Room was very comfortable, great beds. Sits in a mangrove, so loads of bugs. Very expensive food. Isolated from culture, but that is what gringos seem to like.

8/10 Very good

Really nice hotel with a new renovation on the property but it doesn’t bother you. Wonderful staff and medium quality food for the price. Comfy beds but really didn’t like the locked bedroom chamber separated from the sitting area. Very easy to lock yourself out!!

Spend 2 amazing days at this Amazing stay at a beautiful resort. Great atmosphere, decor, and service. The rooms are very new and include a beautiful outdoor patio area with a hammock and sitting area. We ate at both restaurants and the dinner at Makoko was phenomenal

8/10 Very good

El Mangroove Papagayo in Costa Rica was lovely and well maintained. Construction upgrades were in the works and fortunately did not have a negative impact on our Marriott experience. We had dinner at the more formal restaurant option. The wait staff was absolutely lovely. They were professional, thorough, and so pleasant. The talented saxophonist who performed during dinner truly added to our positive experience. She was lovely! There is one area that could be greatly improved and one that most likely won’t be so easily remedied; 1) the suites had a musty moldy smell that could be addressed by using a dehumidifier 2) the restaurant hostess could actually greet patrons in a more welcoming manor rather than offer the air of having better things to do especially when the restaurant is nearly empty.

4/10 Fair

The Hotel is beautiful, but they are undergoing construction and is pretty noisy. The pool is great, but with the construction noise is very annoying. Please note the hotel is gonna be going under construction for another year so if you are planing to relax by the pool is going to be very noisy. Some of the staff was great, but some others not so friendly.
