In this picture-perfect setting, just steps from the longest beach on the Gulf of Papagayo, El Mangroove is in a class of its own.

Paradise is Closer than You Think

Costa Rica is easy to reach from U.S. and Canadian cities—often five hours or less on direct flights from major cities, and El Mangroove is just 20 minutes from Liberia airport—the closest luxury escape of any in the Papagayo region.

El Mangroove's
Hospitality Philosophy

A setting this distinctive and unique requires a hospitality that goes far beyond extraordinary.

Feeling welcome is just the beginning. No sooner have you checked in to the resort, than the staff is calling you by name, learning your personal preferences, and going beyond the expected to make your stay unforgettable. It’s all part of El Mangroove’s DNA.


Here, staff are hired for their personality and people skills, and then trained for the details of their job. That’s the perfect recipe for unparalleled hospitality, for a level of service that begins with “Yes is the answer. What is the question?”.

Your opportunity to embrace the inspired

Quiet luxury and unmatched hospitality are the hallmarks of El Mangroove. Pair that with the natural wonders and ocean adventures right from your back yard and you’ll realize that owning your own Private Residence here is the key to a permanent sense of pura vida.
