We stayed two nights at El Manglar. We had a basic room with a fan. The room could have used some work and a paint job but it was really clean.
The site itself is exceptionnel, lots of trees, beautiful pool amd a kitchen area. It's 30 seconds walk from the beach wich is awesome. The staff was nice and very helpful. The hotel spray some product on the whole site to kill mosquitoes and eradicate the dengue fever.
Just so you know the 2 restaurants nearby are very expensive and so the small market and transport. Be ready to pay a lot to eat so you don't want to pay much to sleep. Do not trust the local barman at the bar if he offers you deal on tours or transport. He might overcharge you or like in our case, never show up. Ask the staff at El Manglar instead.
From Tamarindo we paid 20$ for an unofficial taxi to get there and 80$ for a shuttle to continue our trip to Playa del Coco.
