Weird Eco Nazi Place

Colorado Springs, Colorado

This place is weird. The rooms are split into an indoor and outdoor section with a sliding glass door to separate them and a bug sign saying to keep the glass door closed or you will get creatures in your room. So you really get half a room or else you keep the glass door open and air-condition the outside. That goes against the eco mandated and frankly annoying signs posted all over the place. There are a ton of people who work there who seem to have one goal in mind: Make sure no one is trespassing. We were constantly asked if we 'belonged' and had to prove it. I am a big fan of Marriott hotels, but I will not return to this one. Too pricey, too preachy, and just too weird for me.

Loved this hotel !

We stayed 5 nights with out two girls 13 and 8 and we had an amazing time. They couldn’t be nicer and knew our names in a day and brought me coffee while is did some work in the morning and made sure my wife had a to go cup,when I went back to the room . Place is great , the people were awesome . We chartered a half day boat and snorkeled and fished and caught a huge sailfish and saw a hump back whale. The bay is pristine and very calm. We also took a ride up to Buena Vista Adventure Center for zip line horse back and water slide. The food was really good and as a platinum Marriott member we had breakfast included and the buffet was really good! You can’t go wrong here . We went to the J W Marriott in Guanacaste after for 5 more days which we liked but we all agreed that the Mangroove felt more like Costa Rica Pura Vida !
