Two friends traveling together, we are in agreement that La Mariposa was our favorite place to stay, and we would both return at any opportunity! Our room, #36, was on the top floor, and our terrace and windows provided us the most magnificent views imaginable. Clouds, sky, mountains, ocean, sand & rocks & the foam of breaking waves, trees, palms, flowers, birds, and even the occasional lizard. The room itself was simply perfect for highlighting the views - terracotta tile flooring, supportive queen beds with white spreads & marvelous big pillows, lightly carved wooden furniture, a nice big well-equipped bathroom, AC and wifi that worked - everything needed for comfort, without unnecessary fluff. Meals could be eaten with unobstructed view of the ocean, price of room includes choice of different breakfasts, beautiful fresh fruit plentiful, and a watermelon smoothie in the afternoon is heavenly. Staff was friendly, helpful, attentive, and relaxed in their dealings with us, meeting our needs while allowing us to come and go smoothly & easily according to our preferences. The gift shop at La Mariposa, called La Mariposita, is extraordinary, offering an impressive array of well-made, high-class items, and displaying the works of talented artists from Costa Rica and nearby region. I highly recommend La Mariposa, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to stay there. Thanks!

Stayed 3-nights with the family. Incredible views and high marks on uniqueness of the hotel. My wife and I stayed at this same hotel 13 years earlier, and the experience was multiple times better. Since our earlier stay, the hotel has built an incredible infinity pool and hot tub that opens to incredible views of the Pacific and Manuel Antonio beaches. There were tons of exotic wildlife to be experienced. Each morning we were visited by White-faced monkeys and birds - parrots and toucans and a variety of others. Ideas for improvement: Make the hot tube - HOT. Food was fair - French cuisine. Breakfast buffet - average; nothing to rave about. Maybe have a tripod binocular for guests to use at the patio. They had a outdoor pool table, but they didn't allow kids to use. Perhaps offer a ping pong table or fuse ball instead.

This was our honeymoon and we will cherish the stay at La Mariposa forever. Both of us agree it's probably the prettiest view we've ever seen and both of us, especially my wife, have travelled extensively. It has a 180 degree view of the Pacific Ocean to the west from a 400 ft high bluff with lots of islands and Manuel Antonio National Park in view just one mile away as well as a long range mountain view to the east. The hotel itself is first class, service is excellent!

Amazing. My wife and I stayed at Mariposa for 5 nights in the middle of a Panama and San Jose,CR trip. It all begins walking up to the incredible gardens at the entrance. Beautifil flowers everywhere. Byron or Alex greet you at the front desk and set a the high standard for service that the rest of the team continues to meet. We had room #35 and the views from the wrap-around balcony were incrediuble. Rain forest on one side and the panorama of the Pacific on the other with Playa Espadilla stretching out below. It is very well located to shopping and many great restaurants/bars within walking distance so a vehicle is not required like most of the hotels. Food is a little pricey but it is that way everywhere in Quepos. I forgot my tablet in the hotel safe when checking out and did not realize till I reached San Jose that night. I called the hotel and they retrieved my tablet from the occupied room, with the new occupants approval of course and Byron arranged for it to be delivered to my room in San Jose by the next morning. This would not happen anywhere in the US. The tour of Manuel Antonio Park and the Zip Line Experience they arranged for us were second to none. We are already looking forward to our next trip to Costa Rica and the Mariposa.

La Mariposa exceeded our expectations. The panoramic view and infinity pool were amazing. The best part about this hotel was their staff. Not once did any of their staff say no to any of our requests. The hotel is located in perfect location with great restaurants within walking distance. We have traveled quite a bit and this hotel was the best all around hotel we have been at. Elias was one of our main waiters during our 6 night stay and he was hands down the best waiter we have had on vacation. I asked for them to cook some fish i caught and he set up a table with flowers and a view for my wife and I. We are going to continue to go back to Manuel Antonio but now we have found the hotel we will continue to stay at.

This was our favorite hotel in Costa Rica. It was a bit more than we planned on spending, but completely worth it. The hotel is on the top of one of the highest points in Manuel Antonio with stunning views from the pool, restaurant and rooms which had large patios overlooking the spectacular landscape. The infinity pool was one of the highlights for relaxing and taking in the incredible views surrounding this property. The food was absolutely fabulous -we had both breakfast and dinner. Well worth the price. The food was much better than most hotels we stayed in. I recommend this for families and couples!

I'm from MA/USA, and I've done some travelling in CR - Tamarindo, Nuevo Arenal, Jaco, etc. La Mariposa was the first place we stayed that really took our breath away. The views are spectacular (dizzying even....) Hotel, pool, grounds, all are great. The full breakfast - delicious. And they have piping hot coffee out at 5 AM for us earlybirds who can't get off East Coast time. We stayed off season (July) so the hotel was not crowded (which I liked). Minutes drive to Manuel Antonio or the Public Beach. We appreciated a complimentary room upgrade (because they had availability....always nice).

We upgraded to an ocean view room recommended by another reviewer and it was well worth it. Room was beautiful, bed and pillows comfortable. Older charming hotel at the top of the hill. Restaurant is also excellent. Could walk to the beach (although the way back is a 30 min hike uphill but we like that) and restaurants from this location. Great for couples and families.

This is the most beautiful hotel we have ever stayed at, and we've stayed at some gorgeous hotels! The view is impossible to describe and pictures do not do it justice. Hotel is older, but original tile work, windows, etc. are all beautiful and well maintained. Infinity pool is simply amazing. Monkeys actually climb on the railings of the hotel each morning. Incredible! Do not visit the Manuel Antonio area without staying here. I would go back to Costa Rica just for the views at this hotel!

The view from the hotel pool and restaurant was spectacular!! The hotel was conveniently located although short taxi rides were required for most restaurants and Manuel Antonio National Park. We had a garden room and it was spacious. The only thing I would have liked was black out blinds because the drapes did not keep out the sun in the morning.

This hotel has the best view in all of Manuel Antonio! We usually stay in hostel, but decided to "splurge" on this trip and it was well worth it! The breakfast buffet is delicious! Our room view was to die for!! We had a "partial ocean view" room, so we could see jungle and ocean from our deck. The monkeys were on our deck twice during our trip, which was pretty cool to watch.

First, I have to clarify that we ended up with two upgrades - one for it being the low season, and then the second for having problems with the air conditioning. We ended up in a premium room in the main building with the most amazing view my husband and I have ever seen! (even though we have traveled several countries, including Asia and Europe). The service was always excellent; the food at the hotel was quite good - with enough breakfast that we didn't have to eat lunch, which made it quite affordable. We walked down the road several mornings (early) to see the monkeys and toucans, but found out that staying at the hotel after breakfast we could see them easily right there on the grounds. The pools are refreshing and clean and the grounds have beautiful gardens. The only problems for some people could be the VERY steep driveway and the outside stairs on the main building. There are various buildings with rooms, with varying amounts of stairs. We are in our 60's but in good shape, so it was no problem. We plan to return!

We really enjoyed our stay at La Mariposa. We had reserved a partial beach view room, but believe we got upgraded, because our view was beach front and beautiful. The hotel staff was really nice and accommodating as well. The shuttle to take us to our next destination arrived a little early on our last day and the hotel staff came to look for us on a golf cart. I thought that was really nice of them, over and above what I expected the staff to do for us.

We were there only two nights and three days, and it was not nearly long enough. We could have stayed at the hotel and enjoyed the view, staff, and hotel without experiencing anything else in the area. By the way, we are not young, in love, or any of that stuff. We are senior citizens who know how to enjoy life at it's best...and we thought this was the BEST.

Loved the La Mariposa, and to the locals it's a legendary hotel. 270-degree ocean views from our room were breathtaking, as were the views from the dining room, pools, and hotel bars. Room was spacious, clean, deck was huge. Staff was exceptionally friendly, helpful and accommodating. The included morning breakfast was incredible. And a gorgeous beach is just a 10-15 minute walk away. For this area, it's the ONLY place to stay. We will return. Nothing but superlatives for the wonderful hotel.

This hotel was in the most unbelievable location. There were 270 degree views of the ocean, which made me want to do nothing but lay poolside enjoying the view. The hotel was clean and the food at the restaurant was great. My biggest complaint was that the staff (other than those at the front desk), lacked friendliness. Everywhere we went in Costa Rica the people were so generous and kind and the hotel staff at La Mariposa seemed to hate us. They never smiled, they were not very attentive and they seemed so unhappy all the time.

La Mariposa was our last stop in an adventure travel tour around Costa Rica. It was our nicest hotel and a perfect retreat for our time in Manuel Antonio. The hotel is perched up on the top of a hill offering outstanding views of the ocean and surrounding countryside. The view alone is a reason to stay there. But there are several other benefits. Our room was huge and had a balcony overlooking the ocean. We were traveling with young children and there was plenty of space for our family. They provided a roll-away bed at no extra charge. And the staff was very pleasant. The restaurant is fabulous! The complimentary breakfast buffet was diverse and high quality. It included fresh fruit, yogurt, bacon, juices and made to order eggs, omelets and waffles. Lunch and dinner were equally delicious. And there was live music some nights. When we were ready for a change, we found several nice upscale restaurants close by. The main hotel pool were perfect for our boys (ages 6 and 8). And the beach and national park were just a short drive away. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to the beach four times a day. We liked that we were away from the main drag. (Initially we were booked at a hotel down by the beach, however we canceled that reservation when we learned that there are no private beaches, and the hotel was actually across a busy street amidst a lot of traffic.) We would absolutely come back to La Mariposa if we return to Manuel Antonio!

We arrive early on Friday (8am) and asked for our room (normal check in is 3pm); our room was ready at 9am and we had a free upgrade to ocean view. Breakfast is good. People are nice. Pools are also nice. A bit far from the beaches but have a shuttle four times a day that take you there and bring you back. Food is delicious, I can't complain. My only bad comment would be the breakfast we had the day we arrive (not included in hotel fare obviously); it was really expensive compare to other places or to what I pay for dinner.

The views from the hotel are beautiful and the space invites relaxation. The complimentary breakfast is very good but eat elsewhere for your other meals. The hotel restaurant is adequate but choices abound once you get out of the gate.

I don't know where to start with this review because I have so many great things to say about this hotel. I almost chose not to write a review because we want to have it all to ourselves when we go back! The staff was amazing! Very helpful and kind. The entire hotel has so much character and was beautiful! We had a breathtaking sunset view every night as well as sunrise view in the morning (yes, it's so exciting there that you do wake up for sunset!) the pools were perfection and the pool bar was super convenient. If you are looking for a hotel, I can't recommend it enough. It's reasonably priced for the experience that you will have!

My wife and I stayed for four nights and it was fine. Great food, great pools and sunset views. Be prepared to walk many steps. Our room was on a lower slope with a great view of the ocean and was very private as well. The biggest down side was the lack of an internet connection, but the wifi was down everywhere during our stay. Try the Cafe Milagro which is about a block away. Their wifi seemed to be the only one working around town. Other than that, La Mariposa was great and I would stay there again. Cheers.

A really wonderful place to relax. A terrific view over the Pacific with a pool that looked right out over the edge of the hillside. Really stunning.

25th anniversary trip and we sprung for nice room with a Pacific view. Absolutely worth every penny. Room and view were spectacular with sliding glass doors and balcony. Infinity pool with almost 180 degree view and killer sunsets every night. Very helpful staff setting up guided tour of Manuel Antonio park and sunset catamaran trip.
