Overall a positive experience, friendly staff, the owner is also very friendly. Some parts of the propery might look a little worn out, but it's nothing to be worried about. Keep in mind you're not paying the $200-$300 that the resorts in Papagayo charge, and you'll be just fine.

This is our second time in Costa Rica and second time in Playa Hermosa as well.we like Hotel Mangaby because is not in the crowded area of playa hermosa, but still close to the action and the beach. getting to el coco, tamarindo or other beaches is very easy from here. the suites are perfect for families or friends
