I hosted a 10 day retreat here in December 2017, booking out the entire venue. We fell in love. Shortly after, my brother took his daughter there for 10 days (which turned into 2.5 weeks as he extended his trip). Happy to say I just put down a deposit to take our 10 day retreat back in December 2020. Perfect intimate and fun venue, staff is on point, food is great and they cater to whatever dietary restrictions we need. They accommodated a beach bonfire for us, a formal dinner, my own personal DJ William was the best, and so much more. If you are looking for a place to take the family or take a group of like minded people for a retreat.... this is your place, this is your place, THIS IS YOUR PLACE! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Awesome!!! And yes Great times we had with more to come.. Between the variety of accommodations, full service bar/restaurant, 1200 sq ft yoga studio, volleyball area, huge swimming pool and deck area, 7 acres of lush landscape all lends itself to catering to all desires and needs for any type of affinity group here at Mango Rosa. The Staff is looking forward to you return in December for yet another epic event. Oh yeah!! Happy New Year...Capt Greg & The Mango Crew!

Mango Rosa is amazing! It’s a classic tropical resort in San Juan del Sur, conveniently located by the awesome northern beaches. Mango Rosa has private bungalows, a beautiful pool area, an open air yoga deck, as well as the legendary Restaurant Bar Rancho- serving up great food and drinks along with memories of tropical travel and adventure!
Mango Rosa accommodates guests ranging from the experienced traveler, worldwide surfers and first time visitors to Nicaragua. It’s a perfect home base for activities like surfing at Playa Maderas, swimming at Playa Marsella, watching sunsets at Playa Majagual, sport fishing or sunset cruises on Mango Rosa’s own “La Panga Rosa”…..horse-back riding, canopy tours, yoga, spa services and more! I’ve been visiting Mango Rosa for years. I’m always impressed with the staff’s excellent customer service and willingness to help their guests create a custom vacation experience.
For me, one of Mango Rosa’s best features is the tranquil atmosphere of the resort itself. I love the lifestyle of having a bungalow with the comforts of home and enjoying the exotic jungle paradise right outside my door….or further down the road in lively San Juan del Sur and the sparkling beaches of Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast!
I highly recommend a stay at Mango Rosa.

We had a memorable lifetime experience at Mango Rosa in Nicaragua! Meeting locals, beach sunsets and bbq event we had near the pool on the 4th of July! Food was great and is a family run club and restaurant with many options. Location was perfectly located near the beach and the owner was gracious enough to charter us fishing for an awesome time on the ocean, landing many Mahi Mahi for a tasty meal afterwards. Looking forward to return trip!

We stayed at Mango Rosa for over 2 months during corona & had the most amazing time.
All the staff were always so helpful & flexible to our needs. The bar was open serving drinks with a smile from friendly bar & kitchen staff. The food was always tasty & the staff would often make us special requests.
The houses were nice & spacious with aircon, smart tv, kitchen, huge beds.
Greg organised a fishing trip for us where we caught yellow fin tuna & so many fish we couldn’t eat it all. (Shout out to Ronal for helping with my huge fish)
You are so close to Playa Maderas & only a short drive out of town for all the best access to what San Juan has to offer.
The best place we could have wished for!! I was so sad to leave. Thanks again so much for having us.
I would definitely recommend a stay here. Thank you for everything

The pictures do not do justice to this amazing place! From the moment I arrived I felt like I was at home. The staff went above and beyond with their attentive service and hospitality. The menu offered great variety for everyone and offered local fresh specials daily. I can’t wait for my next visit! I would strongly recommend Mango Rosa to anyone who is up for the best getaway ever!

We visited Mango back in 2009 and returned this Christmas 2019 and brought in 2020 there. We love the hospitality Greg Bamford and his crew Julio, William and Ronal were all great. We cannot wait to get back to Mango.
Minutes form the beach, both Maderas and Marsella, and a hike to several other beaches. We stayed there for two weeks last time, our next visit will be much longer!!
Thanks Bamfy

This place is beautiful and the photos don't do it justice. Greg, the owner was super helpful in helping me plan our wedding on the beach. He did exactly what we wanted, without trying to upsell us services we didn't want, which was a problem with several other inquiries I made in the area. Our wedding was perfect! After we shared a wonderful meal by the poolside and they staff were more than accommodating. I highly recommend.

We arrived in Nicaragua on 11 march 2020 - just when corona started and everything was closing. Greg offered us a stay in his Mango Rosa Resord which was AMAZING!

Crazy nature, nice staff, flexible and open-minded, good food, nice parties, a lot of facilities (yoga, pool, volleyball,...) and also a lot of activities (fishing activities, surf,...)

We will come back for sure. It felt like a family. Thank you for this stay Greg!

We went to the Manga Rosa early in March for a week my friend and I and if we could have spent more time there, we would have. The food and drinks was really good. The rooms were very clean. Greg and his staff were very kind and welcomed us perfectly. We will definitely be back to the Manga Resort and we recommend this place to everyone.

Thank you again for the stay.

Hotel is around 25 min walk from the beach on a bad road and the shuttle only runs 3 times per day. Resort is marked wrongly on both tripadvisor and booking, please go to google maps to see the correct location. Food was not good for the high price level. I can't think about anything positive about this hotel.

Wow, this one is interesting and a bit contradictory as well. Ironically I just received notice from Trip Adviser of our 'Bravo Badge Award' stating that 1,234 Travelers have rated Mango Rosa as Excellent!!!!! Bravo!!! But yes no place if for everybody not even Mango, My best advice on this one is folks please check out Mango Rosa web site, inquire direct (I personally handle all inquires and happy to answer all questions, provide accurate information, help you plan your trip if needed etc) and book direct as opposed to a 3rd party online booking engine that has generic means of presenting information,, Choosing your destination is very important and I personally feel having direct contact is best for this one, I guess the one positive for you guys is you only had to stay 2 nights with us, I truly hope you found your happy place in Nicaragua, sorry it was not Mango,,,Safe Travels Greg and the Mango Crew
