    El Mangrooves

    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 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!

    El Mangroove's reply:

    Perfection

    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 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
