      Clean, comfortable, nice breakfast provided. Pool was very refreshing. Beach down the street, just a short walk.

      I stayed above the pool and it was noisy every night The bar is open at the end and many people gather there with lots of drinking and loud music. I went and asked the manager each night to turn things down. Many other better places to stay and they would have a view also.

      Simple basic rooms close to the beach and good restaurants. A nice patio to sit out front. Breakfast was a highlight! Staff was very friendly. The landscaping is beautiful and inviting.

      Descent affordable place with free breakfast. Easy walk to Hermosa beach. On our last day, there were a dozen monkey in the trees. Make sure you have hot water (in shower only) before you accept the room.

      Pleased with the location- close to the beach and restaurants, helpful friendly staff, nice little local hotel without the big resort feel.

      The pros of this hotel is the pool, a lot of hotels do not keep their pools very clean. Their pool was well taken care of. The hotel is two block distance to the beach and the WiFi was good. We were able to play Netflix on our iPads. However, we will not be staying here ever again. There was a roach in the room as soon as we checked in. It is the equator, so hoping it was a one off, but that night I woke up to one on me. I killed him a few hours later. Then the next morning another ran across me and my girlfriend. We complained to the front desk. They seem to have done something, we did not have a problem for about three days. Unfortunately, the problem returned and we had roaches the last six days of our trip. The bed on a scale of 1 to 10 was a 2. It was hard as a rock. If you stay here, ask for a room on the second floor. The building is concrete, and most of our stay we had kids above us. They would run and the concrete would sound like heavy thunder. If you wanted a nap after morning activities or wanted to go to bed early, you were out of luck. Food was good, but the same four items everyday. Not a big deal If staying for five days, but beyond that you would want to venture out. People mention the fixtures being old. Who cares? They were fine for the price range. I am not buying a house. Staff and owners are super friendly.

      Excellent location - walking distance to many restaurants, 3 minute walk from the beach, off-street secure parking, super market and the Catholic Church. We were a party of six: 2 senior citizens, 2 adults and 2 children (12 and 10 years). Daily free Costa Rican breakfast with delicious coffee and local fresh fruit plus a welcome smile by Danny, was a nice way to start our day. Lunch and dinner at the hotel restaurant were also tasty and reasonably priced. The owners - charming mother and son, Alberto - were always obliging and eager to help with our several requests. This included recommendations for local transportation, activities, restaurants, etc. Our 7-night stay went by too quickly. We highly recommend the Hotel Mangaby.
