    Great property, staff, service, amenities. The main complaint I have is the food. Overpriced, not a lot of variety, and it can be hit or miss

    Extremely friendly and attentive restaurant and bar staff. Well-maintained rooms with a beach flair. There are screened-in porches with couches and hammocks for many rooms, with large, well-air conditioned bedrooms. Room service and bars/restaurants currently close at 9pm. Poolside wait service closes at 6pm! That is a poor management decision for a resort offering few options for evening entertainment, in a somewhat remote area (20 minutes fromLiberia Airport, but certainly far enough away to not know it). Location of the resort is not central to rain forest attractions. Its 88 rooms had a 60 percent or so occupancy this week, giving us the feeling we had the resort to ourselves and a few friends. The beach is grey or black sand, which I assume is volcanic. It is certainly clean and well-maintained. The surf is minimal. The beach is protected by outlying land masses. Several boats are anchored it in this natural harbor environment. We felt completely safe here and in all of Costa Rica. Tour guide ads leading tourists to feel the need for “security” are misleading. Rent a car and use Google Maps. However, if you desire a tour guide, we recommend Gabriel, a private tour vendor. He is exceptional. Pre-flight COVID tests are $50 at labs near the airport, and results are accepted by the U.S. airlines and are emailed to you in an hour. Booking tests and tours through your resorts sometimes doubles prices. Ike and Kelli, Holden, LA, U.S.

    El Mangroove is a sweet little resort about 20 minutes from the Liberia airport. The grounds are impeccable, the rooms lovely and relaxing and the pool is long and sleek with a stunning view of the ocean

    Hotel is pretty new. Pool is smallish and a bit cramped. Property seems to be narrow.

    Amazing property and hospitality. Private beach access and nice pool. Standard rooms are small, but the separate sitting area is great when guests are sleeping. A/C is strong. Would love to return again.

    Overall the hotel is beautifull. Very clean and family friendly. One problem i had was i slipped and fell on the property, there are some places there that is very smooth and one can easily fall. luckily as i fell there was a staff that walked by at the time and saw it happened. He helped me up and advised me that he'll let the front desk know that I fell. After that no one from the hotel reaced out to me to make sure i was ok.

    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
