El Mangroove Autograph Collection

Beachfront Boutique Resort, with an All-inclusive Rate Option



Rate per night from $316

Location, location, location! El Mangroove is the closest resort to an international airport in the country—just 20 minutes from Liberia International Airport. This luxury boutique resort with an all-inclusive option is located right on Playa Panama overlooking the Papagayo Gulf.

Exactly like nothing else by JW Marriott

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.

Sensorial Gastronomy at El Mangroove

An all-inclusive package is available for extra fee (inquire for rates), which will allow you to sample the unique cuisine in both restaurants. Enjoy a “Sensorial Gastronomy” experience of textures, techniques, and flavors using locally sourced food. Relax with your feet in the sand at the casual Matiss beach bar.

This is a great beachfront lunch spot set beneath palapas offering 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 to 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.

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