Our party of four booked into this hotel for 6 nights at short notice, when a villa we had booked via a home exchange developed problems part-way through our holiday. The hotel is lovely, with beautiful gardens and (unheated) pool, the rooms we had were spacious and comfortable and cleaned thoroughly every day. The breakfasts and lunches were fine for... More

My husband and had our third lovely holiday in this beautiful hotel and I fail to understand some of the negative comments made by others. e.g. the very disappointed 1 star review. - I have telephoned and emailed the hotel on various occasions and can assure everyone that the English spoken and written by the family who own and run...

I have read commments like, "the pool is small, the breakfast is cheap..."; nonsense! We were two weeks on the east coast (San Teodoro, Cala Ganone, S. Maria Navaresse and Villasimius). This was easily the best, most beautiful small hotel we stayed at. Very friendly, classy staff. Lovely small pool; you are 2 minutes walk from both the beach and... More

We enjoyed our time at the Mariposas Hotel tremendously. The staff was very friendly and gave great advice. Distances (airport, beaches, city) are perfect.The rooms are very clean and just perfect. The garden is gorgeous and shows that a lot of work is put into it. For a perfect place some ideas for optimization: Breakfast provides a very good standard... More

I visited Hotel Mariposas last year in june with my mother. We spend here one week. I must say that I was bit disappointed - hotel is nice, people are kind, but it is definitely not so fabulous as it seems to be when you read reviews. Rooms are well furnished, clean and spacious. Breakfast looks better than tastes (cheapest... More

We stayed at Mariposas in September and can only echo what all the other contributors have said about this great little hotel. We toured all around the island and this was the best hotel we found. The hotel has excellent free wifi. However we would like to add our special thanks to Riccardo on reception for taking customer service to... More

My husband, fifteen year old daughter and I stayed at Hotel Mariposas for a week from the 13th August. It is difficult to improve on all of the other excellent reviews. We had a Superior Junior Suite with two double bedrooms, lovely bathroom and a balcony with lovely views. The hotel and grounds are spotlessly clean which is always top... More

This is what we did at the Hotel Mariposas when we stayed there for one week in September. I wasn't going to leave a review as I couldn't add to what all previous reviewers had written, but my husband said I should, as it might bump the Mariposas up to first place rather than third in the Trip Advisor ratings....
