Great location a short walk from the beach, the owners were very friendly allowing us to check in early during a very busy time. Air conditioned rooms, free wifi, and free continental breakfast. We enjoyed our stay.

Loved this little hotel. Before traveling to Playa Hermosa I thought I would need a hotel right on the beach, but hotel Mangaby is literally 50 feet away. The waterfall and landscaping make for great ambiance. The restaurant on the hotel serves surprisingly good food, which is very convenient when you need to quickly find a place to eat. Across...

This is the most relaxing place, good for couples and families. The first time... More

I really liked this hotel. The price was reasonable. It is close enough that I could hear the surf every morning, as the ocean is about a block away. There is a nice pool here as well. I believe that every room has a view of the pool. I was on the second floor in room 205. I'm a pretty... More

We stayed 3 nights at Playa Hermosa and were very pleased with our experience here. We could not have asked for a better location. The room was very clean and the shower. Location was perfect within walking distance from the beach. Serene, relaxing and a wonderful place to stay. I would definately stay here again.

The owner and his son were so accommodating in every way, as we had some Internet connection problems (caused by high winds before we arrived, which disrupted services... More

We spent 4 nights here while in Playa Hermosa with 2 kids ages 6 and 8 and it was spectacular! We met so many great families that stayed here as well. The staff was awesome! the pool side restaurant was a pleasure. The breakfast that was included with the room was very good. They make you eggs to order with... More
