5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is situated on the top of a mountain and has amazing views overlooking the ocean and Manuel Antonio Beach. The infinity pool and the bar are perfectly placed to enjoy the sites and sounds of the lush surroundings, birds, and ocean. We even saw a monkey visit the pool area! The room is large, comfortable, and well equipped.... More

We loved our stay at la Mariposa, one of the best views I've ever seen from a hotel room. Service was great, everyone is helpful and friendly. Pool is spectacular and great ambiance. Price was a little high, but worth the spend for the view. Food wasn't great but overall I would definitely recommend staying here as one of the... More

Who cares if the rooms and restaurant are not great? Rooms are very clean and you have great restaurants in walking distance. Stay here to enjoy one of the best views on Earth from an amazing pool. The included breakfast is adequate. You can see as many many monkeys here in an afternoon as you can see in the park.... More

We loved our week-long stay at La Mariposa -- the infinity pool and the 270-degree views are the breathtaking--the best we saw in Manuel Antonio. The restaurant, garden and pools (and the rooms in the main building) are on the highest hill in town and have expansive views across the valley, over the national park and the beaches in Manuel...

This hotel was a choice with our flight and my wife and I are extremely happy with this choice! There are monkeys visible while in the infinity pool which overlooks the Pacific coast with 180 degree vista. Staff made reservations without asking. Our room was partial ocean view but because of the property's hilltop location the ocean was still right... More

This is one of the rare hotels that would charge your credit card before you check in if you booked it online. So, be careful. The room we reserved was full ocean view, but we were given a partial ocean view room, nothing like the photo. As we went to the restaurant for dinner, we realised that a large part... More

Overall excelent place for a short get away from everything. Relieves stress. Had lunch there at a fair price. Breakfast included very complete. Bathrooms need a little updating, other than that MONEY WELL SPENT.

We had three nights here at the end of our tour of Costa Rica and it could not have been a better choice. We stayed away from the main building in a small block of rooms set on the cliff edge with views across to Manuel Antonio National Park and the Pacific Ocean below us. It was a wonderful place...

We stayed here for 5 nights on an 11 day CR vacation and it was definitely a splurge hotel for us. We usually stay at more budget friendly hotels, but it was worth it because the hotel is absolutely beautiful. You could never leave the hotel & leave CR happy. We booked a garden view room but when we checked... More

We enjoyed a family vacation and first visit to Manuel Antonio. The property is very nice with stunning views of the Pacific. Meals had kid friendly options. Staff was friendly and very responsive to our requests.
