“Wonderful Hotel - Great Hosts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2009

I just returned from Costa Rica and I stayed at Mango Valley for a week. The hosts are great - Julia and Vlad will help you book trips & offer some themselves. The bungalows are lovely and super clean. I miss the birds singing in the morning! The daily breakfast is plentiful and delicious - lots of fresh fruit!
I enjoyed my stay and would recommend to all travelers!

Only one caveat for otherwise 100% satisfaction: map it before you try to find it! It was our first day in CR, late in the day (dark) and in spite of a couple of phone calls for help getting there, we could not find it. So owner Julie told me to stay where I was and came to lead us back! Once you get there, you will enjoy wonderful hospitality from the owners, clean cabinas surrounded by a coffee plantation, a lovely view, and a great breakfast of fruit, eggs, toast, and Costa Rican coffee.

We have just returned from a 19 day vacation in Costa Rica. My husband and I stayed at Hotel Mango Valley Bed & Breakfast, while we toured the Central Valley, including Grecia, which we fell in love with. We chose this bed & breakfast because of the many positive commentaries we had read and the favorable comments on its owners Julie and Vlad (husband & wife) for their hospitality. Each day we were at Hotel Mango Valley Bed & Breakfast, we felt more like family than tourists. A friend joined us at this hospitable bed & breakfast and enjoyed the same special treatment showered upon us daily by Julie and Vlad. When one does not enjoy their stay at a specific hotel, one can pack up and leave. However, one is less willing to inconvenience a friend. My husband and I stayed in the "Poas Cabin" with its breathtaking view of the Poas Mountain, flocks of wild parakeets, and songs of workers in the adjoining coffee plantation. Our trip was so enjoyable on all fronts that we have decided to move to Costa Rica next year. Julie and Vlad, we will never forget you and all you did to make our stay a memorable one, including the delicious breakfasts, fruits and the wonderful conversations.

I found this hidden gem in June. My friend and I stayed two nights. The rooms are very clean and the owners are wonderful, knowledge folks with whom I could talk for hours. I plan to return again this winter with my family. The location is very quiet which is hard to find in the Grecia area. I recommend this to anyone who wants an out of the way place with wonderful ammenities and owners.

We spent our first night in Mango Valley B&B. Last year we stayed in the town center and were disappointed. This year we decided to try something new and we were so glad we did. The view from our cabin was amazing. The soothing sounds of river below, dozens of green parrots and humming birds, delicious breakfast and wonderful hosts. It doesn't get any better!

Since we spent three weeks with Vlad and Julie if there was anything not to like we would have found it, we didn't. We are planning to move to Costa Rica and wanted to experience the "rainy" season in one of the areas we thought we liked. The cabinas are very nice, just enough room, hot showers, spectacular views, great breakfasts, gracious hosts. The location is ideal to explore the entire western valley, in fact one day we drove to Jacó to have lunch on the beach and further south and still were back before dark. We have stayed in many hotels in CR and Mango Valley rates at the top of the list.

Mango Valley Hotel is a great place to stay in Costa Rica! Vlad and Julie greeted us as my husband and I arrived. We received a pleasant surprised when they showed us the room."The Burgundy" is an immaculately clean cabin with one bedroom, a kitchenette, bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub, and finalized by a balcony with an exceptional view. They were extremely helpful and full of advice to make sure we took advantage of everything that the area around us had to offer. The breakfast along with their company was great. We agreed that they get a 5 star rating on everything.
