Room was spacious with an amazing view. Bed was a little hard. Had air conditioner and hair dryer. Ask for extra towels. Loved the pool area. Breakfast was good and substantial. Never disturbed by loud guests.

"The simplicity of being in Paradise!"
La Mariposa is located in paradise. The simplicity of our room was overshadowed by such an incredible view of the Pacific Ocean/Manuel Antonio. The restaurant and its breakfast was phenomenal- and we had wonderful dinners there as well. The staff were very accommodating and even helped me out when I had a serious complication. Great place!

It was a nice stay bit verte pricey for the accommodations. I would opt for a cheaper option. Also don't book tours with these guys. They gave the the wrong info and I ended up on a miserable tour eaten alive by mosquitoes.

"Beautiful Experience"
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!

"Mariposa experience"
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.

"Stunning hotel in great location, great view"
The hotel staff was friendly, the view is stunning and the hotel is in a good location. Parking is available if you rent a car. The rooms we had were in our own little area, spacious and private with an amazing panoramic view of the coastline, jungle and oceans. They lend out towels and it's a nice walk or drive down to the beach. Restaurants and shops are within walking distance. When we went swimming in the hotel pool we looked over the edge and saw white-faced capuchin monkeys climbing in the trees below, and watched the sunset over the ocean. It was beautiful and relaxing.

"Magnifico !!"
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!

I loved my six nights at La Mariposa. The view is breathtaking, the breakfast excellent and the staff is friendly. Big shout-out to Rafael and Elias for taking care of us at the bar. As other reviewers have said - the rooms could use an update. My niece and I stayed in room 11, which has a partial ocean view. It was great! Private, quiet and monkeys came to the balcony. We also didn't have the three story climb that the full ocean view rooms have. Great vacation!

"Little Bit of Paradise"
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.

"Perfect vacation"
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!

"La Mariposa Delivers"
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).

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.

"Worth it!"
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!
