We had a great couple of nights at ManGaby with our two kids. They loved the pool, and we were really close to the beach. The room was comfortable, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was tasty, but I wish we'd known there was a menu we could use to supplement our breakfast earlier.

Nice hotel with clean rooms and very nice sweet for two couples or a family. Good restaurant with good drinks. Enjoyed the pool and being able to relax by it. Short walk to the beach. One of our favorite spots.
