Delight in your surroundings, both indoors and out, at Costa Rica's El Mangroove; this resort-style hotel is the right place for travelers who want the best of both worlds – private paradise and adventure too. An elegant hotel on the Gulf of Papagayo, it sits amid the dual terrains of lush tropical forest and sun-warmed beach. Whether you're the sun-and-surf type or prefer to explore, you can enjoy both when you stay at El Mangroove; nearby beaches are uncrowded and offer a variety of watersports, while nature tours are within an easy drive.

Playa Panamá is the main area beach and it is within easy walking distance. Because the beach is off an inner bay, the water currents are weaker, and the tide remains fairly low and constant; that makes it perfect for snorkeling, kayaking, sailing and swimming, which are all popular activities here. Also near the beach is a championship golf course designed by golfing legend Arnold Palmer.

After a day in the sun, relax in El Mangroove's luxury suites. They feature separate living and sleeping areas, spectacular views and room service that's available around the clock. Or you can stretch out at the hotel's stunning swimming pool; it overlooks mangroves and provides a scenic retreat when you don't feel like leaving the grounds.

When a little pampering is in order, you can find it in one of the hotel's unique, outdoor spa centers. You will have a cabana-like room on resort grounds, surrounded by nature, where you can enjoy massages, facials, body wraps, manicures and more in an atmosphere that is both relaxing and refreshing. Just what you need after a morning workout in the on-site gym, which features modern fitness equipment and instructor-led exercise classes. When you have a special night planned, take advantage of salon services to look your best.

For meals, guests can choose the Makoko or Matiss, on-site restaurants designed to take full advantage of their surroundings. Each serves international cuisine in surroundings that are open to the balmy climate and tropical greenery. Makoko has a view of the pool and outside areas; you can order breakfast and dinner here. Matiss has an ocean view and sand floors; you can find lunch and refreshments here during the day.

"Beautiful boutique hotel right on the beach. The rooms are gorgeous as are the grounds of the hotel. The beach out front is perfect for swimming, gone on long strolls or just relaxing with a good book. There are also many water activities you can do. We tried paddle boarding for the first time and it was really fun. Our family truly enjoyed this hotel."
