We stayed for a few nights at the end of our 2 week vacation so we would have a short ride to the airport. Very clean and well maintained. The staff could not be more accommodating, front desk calling cabs, giving us extra pillows etc. The pool with jacuzzi jets was refreshing and clean. A limited breakfast buffet at their restaurant by the pool was an added benefit. Reasonably quite and uncrowded, very secure. Walking distance to many restaurants, a small market and the beach of course. Rooms have AC.The only downside was the furniture in our suite could use an update with something more comfortable.
We stayed here for one night at the beginning of our Costa Rica trip. It was a lovely and relaxing way to start off after long travel days. We rented a car from Liberia airport and enjoyed the short drive to arrive at this hotel. It is easy to find if using Waze; the hotel has it’s own parking lot. This is a small hotel which fits the quiet neighborhood perfectly complete with a refreshing pool with a waterfall and a shallow area for kids. It is a very short walk to Playa Hermosa which is absolutely beautiful! Great for swimming with clear water and soft sand - great for building castles or going for Long Beach walks/runs. There are also a bunch of restaurants along the beach - we ate at one for dinner at sunset which was gorgeous. We also really enjoyed our balcony in the evening which overlooked the pool. The hotel includes a limited breakfast buffet (eggs, toast with jam, meat, plantain, rice & beans, fresh fruit) and coffee/juice, available at the restaurant outside by the pool. The hotel is clean and quiet, however, the rooms are quite outdated. Also, we noticed that our patio doors to the balcony did not actually lock. There is a mini-fridge and a safe in the room which was appreciated. There are also nearby stores to buy groceries, drinks, etc. One tip: bring beach towels as there are none provided for the pool area or beach. …
Very nice pool area. Safe parking. Easy walk to beach. Howler monkeys could be seen in trees near by the beach. Staff helpful and friendly. Discount for paying cash (would take US dollars). Great spot. Highly recommend.
We love staying here... great location, walking distance from beach, security guard all night, breakfast was delicious, rooms are clean, a/c, but most importantly the customer service at this place is what brought us back twice to this comfy hotel. Alberto and staff are always willing to help to make our stay more pleasant. Thanks ManGaby crew! We will stay here next time we are in Playa Hermosa!
Excellent location - walking distance to many restaurants, 3 minute walk from the beach, off-street secure parking, super market and the Catholic Church. We were a party of six: 2 senior citizens, 2 adults and 2 children (12 and 10 years). Daily free Costa Rican breakfast with delicious coffee and local fresh fruit plus a welcome smile by Danny, was a nice way to start our day. Lunch and dinner at the hotel restaurant were also tasty and reasonably priced. The owners - charming mother and son, Alberto - were always obliging and eager to help with our several requests. This included recommendations for local transportation, activities, restaurants, etc. Our 7-night stay went by too quickly. We can highly recommend the Hotel Mangaby.
