Rooms feature contemporary, chic furnishings and eco-inspired elements (earth-tone walls, light wood furniture, stone flooring, and white bedding). All rooms are suites with separate bedrooms and living spaces. The patio is your screened in, open-air living room complete with a big sofa or hammock overlooking the surrounding mangrove forest. Air-conditioned bedrooms are separated from your living area by a glass door. Bathrooms are luxuriously appointed, with marble rainfall showers and large walk-in closets stocked with robes, irons and ironing boards, electronic safes, and full-length mirrors.
Located on pretty Playa Panama, next to the lake-like waters of Culebra Bay. Playa Panama, is a gorgeous stretch of sand that overlooks the Papagayo Peninsula. The placid waters of the bay are ideal for swimming, kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding.
El Mangroove’s location is also convenient for travelers who’d like to explore the surrounding beach towns of Playas del Coco or Playa Hermosa. Rincon de la Vieja National Park and Palo Verde National Park are both about a 90-minute drive from the property.
20-30 min drive from Liberia (LIR) International Airport
2-minute walk to a rarely crowded beach with gorgeous Pacific Ocean vistas
El Mangroove has two restaurants, the upscale Makoko and more casual Matiss. Makoko, located just off the lobby, is the hotel’s fine dining restaurant with a farm-to-table philosophy. It serves breakfast and dinner, but also has a bar menu for small bites and drinks throughout the day. Breakfast is served buffet-style, and includes typical offerings of omelets, fruit, and fresh pastries. Matiss is the poolside restaurant open for lunch and dinner with a menu of more casual eats such as tacos, ceviche, burgers, and pizza.
Both resort restaurants offer international menus with an emphasis on fresh seafood. Atmosphere: laid-back and beachy, featuring thatched roofs, sand floors, and poolside activities.
Step outside and find yourself only steps away from one of the most beautiful and peaceful beaches on the peninsula. An ideal setting for yoga on the beach! Groups will participate in one early morning or sunset yoga class on the beach. An additional practice space will be reserved on either the wooden jungle platform or in the resort’s expansive, airy gardens. The venue also includes an indoor multi-purpose conference space that can be used as a backup yoga practice location, or for workshops.
The tranquil waters of the protected cove are perfect for SUP yoga; daily sessions on the bay (weather permitting) are included in your retreat rates.
