El Mangroove

Luxury and Location! Five-star, Beachfront, All-Inclusive Resort.


Rate per night from $272

Just 20 minutes from the Liberia International Airport, El Mangroove is a luxury boutique resort with an all-inclusive option, located right on Playa Panama overlooking the Papagayo Gulf.

Now part of the Marriott’s “exactly like nothing else” Autograph Collection, this beachfront property offers a modern bohemian vibe while blending with the forest, beach, and mangroves that surround it. The small hotel feel, uniquely hip design, impeccable service, numerous amenities, and access to a tranquil beach make it a perfect choice for couples and families alike.

The resort has 85 suites in two-story buildings which are neatly placed around the mangrove and hidden with lush plants. All rooms are a perfect blend of nature and simple luxury. This is highlighted by an indoor/outdoor living space featuring natural elements, regional artwork, and subtle touches of color, while at the same time utilizing a sleek design and high-end amenities.

There are both all-inclusive and meal-inclusive packages available (inquire for rates), which will allow you to sample the unique cuisine in both restaurants. Relax with your feet in the sand at the casual Matiss beach bar. This is a great beachfront lunch spot set beneath palapas which offers small plates and fresh salads. Makoko has a fine indoor-outdoor dining area with diverse a la carte menu options for  breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Both restaurants are in line with El Mangroove’s sustainable focus and use a farm (or ocean)-to-table approach as they create honest food that is a joy for the senses.

The hotel’s pool area offers a pleasant ambiance with subtle music and a view straight to the beach. Cabañas are available to rent for the day for added privacy poolside. Borrow the complimentary bikes or kayaks for a day of exploring or rent paddleboards (with LED lights for paddling at night!) and arrange boat tours at the water sports center. On site, enjoy the relaxing spa with indoor and outdoor treatment rooms and the gym.

The hotel is committed to environmental protection, having become certified through the Costa Rican Tourism Board with a Level 5 (highest available) CST (Certificate of Sustainable Tourism).

This is a place where—as the name suggests—you can get into your groove!

  • A la carte meals
