Locally owned and operated by four siblings, Hotel El Manglar is a naturally private, tropical escape. Only a few hundred yards from the crashing waves of Playa Grande, El Manglar offers those on a fixed budget a comfortable place to rest with modern amenities.
Accommodations, just off from the shared pool and garden courtyard, include standard room and villa options equipped with the essentials to ensure that your stay is peaceful and enjoyable. Standard rooms are perfect for those who appreciate simplicity and are an economical choice in relation to the proximity to the coast. Villa guests can relax with the comforts of a king size bed, a full kitchen, hammocks and a private terrace or balcony—an excellent option for extended stays.
The owners take pride in showing off the pura vida beach life of Playa Grande and its treasures: namely the surfing and the Las Baulas Marine National Park. If you are interested in surfing lessons, a surf camp experience, or a guided tour of one of the world’s few remaining nesting sites of Leatherback Sea Turtles, El Manglar will take care of you. Additionally pets are welcome, so bring the entire family along for stay at the Hotel El Manglar, where they boast ‘a day in paradise, every day.’
