I’m so happy we picked El Mangrooves for our destination wedding! From the moment we contacted them, Jennifer, our event coordinator, was so responsive and helpful in planning every detail. She was ... Read more was great about letting us know our timeline and what we needed to be done to ensure we’d have a seamless wedding day. I just wanted a low stress destination wedding that was customized but with minimal planning on my part and I was absolutely blown away with how everything turned out. It definitely exceeded my expectations! The actual wedding was on the beach during a beautiful Costa Rican sunset and the setup was absolutely lovely. The violinist who played at our wedding was so talented! My now husband requested to come to the ceremony on a horse and all of the guests loved it! The dinner table setup was stunning as well. The actual resort was absolutely beautiful, and perfect for our group of 34 guests to relax and enjoy themselves between activities. The accommodations and service were on par with any 5 star hotels I’ve stayed in around the world. The first night, we met Michael, our bartender who ended up as bartender at our actual wedding. He made us the best cocktails that were well balanced and all made with fresh fruits and juices. I am very picky about cocktails but loved all the ones he made! The food at the wedding and all of the restaurants on premises were top notch! Definitely not your typical forgettable resort food. The presentation and well as taste of everything was amazing! The entire staff at El Mangrooves was so friendly and helpful. Each and everyone of them helped make this whole experience a very memorable beautiful one and deserve recognition! Thanks to all of you for making our wedding and trip such a memorable one!

We could not have asked for a more perfect venue. Service was impeccable, decor was fabulous and every last detail was what we wanted. They were incredibly flexible in working with us. Let Art Flower ... Read more work with you on ideas for decor and you won’t be disappointed. Our friends and family can’t stop talking about how much fun they had! 10/10 would recommend to antone

Better Than We Could Have Imagined
We had our wedding at El Mangroove, and it was an amazing experience. We decided to do a small destination wedding (around 20 guests), so everyone opted to stay at the resort as well. The entire trip ... Read more trip was great; every staff member - from the concierge, to servers and bartenders, to medical staff - was courteous and friendly (and they all knew we were there for our wedding; at breakfast on the day of the ceremony, multiple staff members came up to my wife and I to say congrats). Jennifer, our wedding coordinator, was incredible. From our very first email exchange, she was responsive and attentive to our requests. In addition to handling everything related to the wedding (ceremony, reception, menus, floral, hair & makeup, rehearsal dinner, welcome cocktail reception for our guests, etc.), she helped coordinate on offsite dinner for the entire wedding party during our stay. We had our ceremony in the Beach Forest setting, which was perfect for an intimate wedding (the beach is public, so there were people nearby during the ceremony. But it never felt intrusive, and many people clapped and cheered at the end of the ceremony). The cocktail reception was help in the Ocean Terrace, which could have hosted a much larger reception than ours - the younger attendees had plenty of space to run around and play. All of the food was excellent and flavorful - definitely not your typical wedding food. The atmosphere was very relaxed. Honestly, we can't enough about how pleased we were with the entire experience. Everyone who attended told us it was the best wedding they'd ever been to; my brother (who recently got engaged) even said he and his fiance are thinking about having their wedding at El Mangroove as well! If you book your wedding st El Mangroove, you definitely won't be disappointed.
