I stayed in Mangaby last week a beautiful, family run hotel. The Hotel is impeccably clean, staff is more than helpful and friendly. Family run and you definitely get that feeling here. Pool is perfect with a waterfall, walk to the beach is down the street a minute or so... you can't get any better than this in playa hermosa!...

This hotel is almost beside the beach at Hermosa and made for a wonderful stay before an early flight the following morning. Checked in about 2 pm and this gave us enough time to hit the beach in the evening. Rooms were spacious and clean although the bathroom looked a little dated. WiFi worked well and so did the aircon....

Hotel Mangaby is a well-run, family-owned hotel within a few minutes walk of Hermosa's beach. Rooms are basically furnished and the en-suite is a little dated, but the beds are very comfortable. There is always plenty of hot water for a shower, but the wash basin only provides cold water. Everywhere in the hotel is clean and the staff are...

We stayed 1 night because the hotel where we had planned to stay got booked at the last minute. They were very nice, breakfast was included in our rate and was good. Not on the beach, but close by. Market across the street where you can get snacks.
