Stayed here for four nights. The room is basic, clean and functional. Breakfast included. Just what is required if you want a place to stay while you explore the area. A short walk to the beach in a quiet town. Restaurant on site serves typical Costa Rican food. Other restaurants are a convenient short walk away. Staff are friendly and... More

Check in guy was really nice and all but the place was just ok. Bit on the dirty side, found a cockroach with the first hour even on the second floor room. Supposed to have king got two beds. Nice free breakfast. Good location to beach and such. Ok for a stopover but not a week or anything. For 110... More

Not far from the Liberia airport has a beautiful beach within walking distance. Could use some flyers advertising local activities. Room was very clean and hot water and water pressure was good. Internet went in and out a bit. Pillows are small. Parking is tight but doable. Food in restaurant was good, and cook was fast, but girl that worked... More

Mangaby is wonderful. An immaculately clean, spacious room with a gorgeous walkout patio with ample room for lounging, eating or working. Room has everything you might need for a longer stay (fridge, microwave, toaster over, glasses, plates, etc. Pool is lovely, and large enough to be functional, but not enormous. The staff was amazingly helpful, accommodating a very late arrival... More

Right by the beach, has everything you need. Fridge, AC, porch, pool, microwave if you ask. Everything's clean and pretty and the staff is super nice and helpful. Pool and restaurant. No frills, but pretty and well taken care of and just what you need. Mini supermarket across the street. Definitely recommend. Playa hermosa is gorgeous!

The staff at this hotel are absolute gems., always smiling and willing to help with any questions. The rooms are spacious, each with it's own semi-private outdoor space. Breakfast was included in my reservation and was excellent. The hotel is very clean and safe and only a very short walk to the beach. I was very pleased with my stay... More

My family of 5 recently stayed for 1 night in a 2 bedroom apartment. The unit was clean, but very basic. The televisions and air conditioning worked well, and the pool was really nice especially for my 4 year old because she could stand in much of it. The reason for 3 stars is the value for what we got,... More
