Our fist stop was san jose then we drove 5 hours to get to Playa Hermosa, we have read some many good reviews of this hotel here, we decided to give it a try. The Hotel is located at only 200 yards of the beach, very close to every where, large room, nice pool, good restaurant great service too

Had a great experience here. Roberto at reception was very friendly and chilled out. he recommended a great boat trip for us on the Kuna Vela. Rooms are basic but clean. Nice porch near the pool. Lovely pool as well and very clean. Very close to the gorgeous beach. Great value for money here, I would recommend this place.

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 a small family owned hotel, nice, clean, well organized and managed and just several steps from the best beach of Guanacaste, Hermosa. The beach is beautiful and surprisingly empty. 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.
