We loved this hotel! We will go back to the same place next time we visit Playa Hermosa. Alberto, the owner, and his wife Kelsey, were extremely responsive to every question we had, and were always pleasant. Alberto recommended some excellent tour companies and spent a lot of time making reservations for us. Our room was right across from the beautiful pool. It was so easy to slip into it for a morning or evening dip. We also appreciated the outdoor shower on our return from the sandy beach two blocks away. Oh, and breakfast! Every morning Kelsey would serve beautiful plates of papaya, watermelon, mango and pineapple. There was a limited choice of breakfast so we alternated. Alberto makes a terrific omelet which we highly recommend.

This is probably one of the most enjoyable stays at a hotel that I have had in a long time. Nelsy and Alberto are fantastic hosts. They went way above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. We had a small problem with some documents that were accidently left in the room, they came to the rescue and got them to us. I had a breakfast request and they were willing to accommodate me. To sum up, they treated us like family. The hotel is also great, lots of hot water and pressure, internet is the fastest of any hotel I have ever stayed at. AC worked great, TV worked, as well as all the controllers. Lots of plugins, a fridge in the room. The hotel is also designed for folks that use wheelchairs, including the rooms downstairs, restaurant, and pool. I really can't say enough good about this hotel.

This hotel is so clean and friendly. The owners ( Alberto) go above and beyond to make sure you have a good stay. The rooms are simple but very clean. We enjoyed sitting in the balcony listening to the howler monkeys. The breakfast was great with the best coffee we have ever had!! Just a short walk to a beautiful peaceful beach. We only stayed one night because we had reservations at a resort not far from this hotel. We asked Alberto how we could get taxi. He said “I’ll take you”. He put our luggage in the back of this jeep and took us to the resort. So nice. Again they go above and beyond to make a difference. We would stay here again and again.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Mangaby. The staff were really nice and helpful. The accommodations are basic but there is a pool and it is near the beach. You should really consider the location though. This hotel is an hour plus from Tamarindo if that's your ultimate beach destination. It is very close to the Liberia airport.
