We just finished 7 great days at the Mariposa. A person couldn't ask for a better experience. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great location on 5th Avenue. After spending 6 months traveling around Mexico a great way to finish off our holiday before returning home.

Well, they have all you need+discount for Mamita's beach (5-10 min walk), good breakfast in... More

The hotel was very quaint .. we had a room on the ground floor with only one window looking into the court yard. The room was a good size, but stuffy. There was a smell of damp/staleness in the room even with the air conditioning and the windows open! We got bitten during the night by mosquitos in the room... More

This is a great low budget, but very charming hotel. The rooms are small, but it has everything you need. If you have a choice, ask for the for the suite, since it is a bit bigger than the other rooms. You are right on the main street, which is a pedestrian area, and only a few blocks away from... More

My girlfriend and I stay here in May for 2 days, the rooms are nice and clean. The place is well situated and is near the beach where they gave us discount for a beach club. All the staff members are nice and helpful.
