We were at hotel Mangaby for 5 nights. We had one of the suites. Equipped with all kitchen appliances. The hotel is a few yards of the Beach. The pool area and restaurant is very quiet. Maybe because of the green sea

The room was spacious, the breakfast was good and the pool was pretty great! Above it all the staff was helpful and friendly. Honestly some of the best people I met in Costa Rica! Thank you to the owner and Wendy at the hotel bar/restaurant, they made our stay worth it. Walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shops!
