“Not what I expected”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

No beach, we had to walk to get to the beach which was not for swimming, room was mediocre at best, towels were old, views were good!!! Felt push for tips which makes me think if the employes were paid adequately, advertise happy hour but did not indicate beer was not included. Will not recommend this hotel

We stayed there one night, March 6th, and wished for more! Very nice 2 bedroom with an incredible view. We enjoyed food and drink at the awesome restaurant/bar that is open, so you can sit along a counter and enjoy the sunset, and watch the monkeys swinging past. Great pool and nice beach is an enjoyable walk down the hill . We had made plans to rent a house close by, but came back for the food, drink, and sunset more than once. Really enjoyed the owner, Donna, her sweet dog, Manga, and all the staff. Just can't say enough nice things about this place, it is a jewel in an awesome location. Would stay there again and recommend to anyone in the Manual Antonio area.

We enjoyed our stay here very much! The view was lovely and the rooms were very comfortable and beautiful. They have really spent time thinking of all the details, and the room was very romantic. The prices were a little high but we are aware Costa Rica is becoming more expensive now.
We enjoyed our breakfast very much, although my husband did say he was still a little hungry after.
Thank you for a great stay!

We stayed 4 nights. Very homey,relaxing place. Loved watching the sunsets from the bar on the deck. Breakfast (which is included,consisting of toast and a variety of fruit and great coffee)at the the deck bar ,watching birds and monkeys is an amazing way to start your day.Donna was helpful and knows the area very well. Staff are very friendly,especially Arlene.

Finding this hotel on our family vacation turned into one of the best days on our trip. We were traveling with two teenagers and a 10 month old. The staff was super friendly, the view was breath-taking and we all felt safe and welcomed. The food was fantastic and the distance from the beach was comparable to the other hotels in the area. Having live music in hotel that evening was great. Traveling with the kids made it hard for us to have a "night out" and this made it so we didn't have to go anywhere, not to mention the music was awesome.

If we ever return to the area, with or without kids, we will be returning to the Mango Moon.

We had a wonderful time at mango Moon, the hotel is very charming and Cozi, I loved every detail and the views are fantastic, it was my daughter`s favorite hotel, we saw Monkeys and birds....every morning we enjoyed the CR coffee and the Casado breakfast that kept us full, most of the day, we took a Taxi to a Beach called Bizan (not sure how to spell it), is a small beach that has no waves and is like a private Oasis, we spend the whole day there and we had to walk back to the hotel, it tooks around 25 min to get back, but it was worth it!!!!
Donna and her crew where very friendly and helpful.

This place is over-priced, loud and far from the beach. When the owner was asked to turn the music down at night, she was unfriendly and not accommodating. They offer a free breakfast but it is really just a piece of bread a fruit. Drinks are over-priced too. There are bugs in the rooms and they do not have the air-conditioning on when you arrive. I asked for an airport pick up and no one was there. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
