My wife and I booked here last year. WE had never been to the area, but it was one of the only places with a pool and that pretty much made the decision for us. The place is a trip and a half. Very strange... When we were there the manager was away on vacation, and Mike, the owner was... More

The hotel website and the travel guides really oversold this hotel. There is no beach, the bar over the water was filled with cheap plastic chairs, some broken and there was no working bar. The first night I had to ask for clean sheets as the ones on the bed had a bad smell, as did the towels on some... More

Playa Mango did not live up to the previous reviews. We stayed one week and would have left if we had not prepaid. There has been a change in management and I assume this may be the reason the resort has apparently gone downhill. The linens on the beds are horrible, rough and very pilled. The grounds are poorly maintained... More

My partner and I needed a relaxing get-away and that is exactly what we got when we stayed at Playa Mango. The rooms were very clean and it was very quiet and relaxing. The manager Michael is so friendly and caring. Catilla, the cook/bartender, makes a mean Pina Colada and her cooking was excellent! The pool right off the ocean... More

We had a really nice, friendly and peacefull experience at the Playa Beach Resort. The locations is perfect, just outside the village and ideal to do by bike (10 minutes biking trip). Also the rooms are clean and provided with airconditioning, the food is explended and we loved the attention we got from the staff and the Manager Michael. He... More

This hotel was a good value, it was very clean, the food was great, staff were very friendly, pool was fantastic and the room comfortable. But the manager (Michael) made our trip so much fun that the hotel was really kind of secondary. He arranged great day trips that fit our budget and always made sure that we paid an... More

My wife and I have taken a lot of trips over the past couple of years and nothing compares to this one. Micheal Evnin (GM of the resort) greeted us with the most sincere hospitality and took care of us during the entire stay. He gave us great recommendations for things to see and places to go. The entire staff... More

The manager Michael was very nice and arranged some excellent horseback riding for my customers. The location is nice and quiet, there is a nice pool, cute and friendly bar staff, and the rooms are fantastic. The location is a little bit out of town but the manager knew many trustworthy boat captains and taxis that we could take back... More
