Property is well maintained and the pool, plants and surrounding areas are just beautiful. About a 3 minute walk to Playa Hermosa beach, lots of...

Family owned and these people take a lot of pride in their hotel. Everything was very clean, and they changed the sheets and mopped the floor everyday during our 4 day stay.....I considered staying on the beach, however....when I went to another hotel to inquire about their rates, the staff was so unfriendly and would not even smile! So I...

If your idea of a vacation in Costa Rica is the craziness of Tamarindo or Playa Coco, you do not want to find yourself in Playa Hermosa. If , however, you are interested in a quiet town, filled with local families, local cocinas and a beautiful beach then Playa Hermosa is the place to be. The Hotel ManGaby is family...

If you have the pleasure of visiting Costa Rica, you must make a stop at Playa Hermosa and stay at Hotel ManGaby. This adorable hotel is a short (less than 5 minute) walk to the beach. We arrived at the hotel around 11 pm and was pleasantly greeted by the owner who kindly showed us to our room. He was...

I stayed here for two nights as part of a tour of Costa Rica and was very pleasantly surprised. I knew we were spending a couple nights at the beach town and I had visions of a large impersonal resort. Not the case at Mangaby. It's a small family run hotel that is a quiet slice of Playa Hermosa. The...
