This 4.5-star boutique hotel offers airy suites with contemporary decor resembling the surrounding mangrove trees, sugarcane and stone. Rooms are equipped with air conditioning, large walk-in rain showers, complimentary Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and patios complete with hammocks.

El Mangroove sits on 17 acres and has a beautiful beachfront. Guests can spend the day paddleboarding, kayaking or surfing, or rent a bicycle and cruise through the lush grounds. Cool off poolside with music from international DJs, relax in one of the private cabanas, hit the spa or take a yoga class on the beach.

For on-site dining, head to Makoko for elegant, contemporary cuisine in a casual atmosphere, or to Matiss for a relaxed setting with ocean views. For shopping or a night out, the artsy town of Playas del Coco (or "El Coco," as the locals call it) is just 15 minutes away.

Other Comments
we were in Costa Rica for 10 days and spent our last 2 days here. The diner / lunch food was super over priced and very poor quality. The kids Mac and cheese had no flavor and the chicken over cooked. We didn’t have any bug bites he whole trip and spending 2 days here we were covered.
