Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


This 4-star boutique hotel offers a luxurious and trendy abode for those looking to lose themselves in the beauty of Costa Rica's beaches and tropical mangrove forests, after which the hotel is named. 

Its modern, airy suites feature clean, neutral colors and contemporary decor, as well as furnishing 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, with 150 meters of 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 free yoga class.

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.

From the press:
  • "More luxurious beach boutique hotel than big beach resort despite its 85 suites, El Mangroove opened in February 2014 and has already become known as THE place to be and be seen." -- Conde Nast Johansens
  • "Barefoot luxury abounds at this hip boutique hotel where an airy courtyard leads to a 45-meter pool lined with beach bungalows and modern rooms. Architect Ronald Zürcher integrated stone, sugarcane, and towering Guanacaste trees into the design." -- Fodor's
