This was the perfect place to relax after a long flight. Jose and Maite were great hosts and provided us with lots of invaluable advice for our trip.

Views over the valley, and hummingbirds were stunning from the balcony of the poas chalet.

If you're not used to driving in Costa Rica, I would recommend getting picked up at the airport and get a car delivered to the hotel, as may be a bit hard to find without directions.

This is the second time we chose to stay at this cute little establishment. there is nothing like waking up in the morning to the sounds of birds at our window singing us awake. its a terrific way to begin an exciting stay in Costa Rica. Maite and Jose are terrific hosts. Very attentive and friendly. We were surprised they recognized us from our trip here six months prior! Overall this place is wonderful if you are looking to get away and have a slow day to relax. the pool is gorgeous and the location cant be beat. I highly recommend it.

Once we found this spot, we didn't want to leave. Located atop one of Costa Rica's central valleys, the drive there was an adventure to say the least, and we got lost on the way, but while we were wandering we say some amazing sights, talked to some friendly locals, and ate some amazing food. About 45 min from the Airport, and the same to Poás Volcano, these one-room bungalows offered an amazing view of the valley, while also offering seclusion and security. The proprietors, Jose and Maite, were helpful and sweet. A great bookend to our honeymoon, one that my wife and I will return to.

Room Tip: The rooms have great views, but the middle bungalow on the end doesn't have motion-sensor lights...

This is one of the most beautiful places we saw in Costa Rica! It sits high on the mountain (a little difficult to find at first- "just keep going up" Maite said) overlooking the gorgeous lush valley between Carbonal mountain and San Isidro mountain. The weather is warm in the daytime and cool in the evening. Maite and Jose ( and Nuria) were such fun and the most wonderful hosts- telling us of great non-touristy places to visit and in general just being so helpful. The American couple that lives on the nearby property were also very helpful with information about moving to and living in CR. We will be relocating to CR in the fall. We stayed a week and then returned for two more nights because it was great.

Room Tip: There are 6 cabinas and they are all very similar. Good American style breakfast each morning cooke...

My husband and I stayed two nights with Maite and Jose. We would have stayed more but they were booked. We had a wonderful, homemade meal made for us when we returned from the Peace Gardens. Maite found us another stay within Grecia with a call to a friend. Such helpfulness is well remembered.

We had a very nice overnight stay on the first lag of our driving trip from San Jose to Arenal. Mango Valley is off the beaten track, but that's what you expect when you rent a car in Costa Rica. The accommodations were clean and basic, the property was simple and had a pleasant valley view. A simple breakfast was included. If I was to only comment on the property it would be above average for minimalist cabins in Costa Rica, but if you consider the hosts/owners - they're what really makes Mango Valley exceptional. They were able to give detailed directions locally, recommend things to see and were right on the spot with all of their recommendations. It felt safe and was a restful stop-over.
