This is a beautiful hotel and the views are unbeatable. We enjoyed spectacular sunsets in the infinity pool and from our balconies. Our corner room had two king size beds, which was nice for our family of four. Breakfast could have been a little better but there was plenty to choose from. The shuttle to and from the park was...

We had a great stay at La Mariposa, the staff were very accommodating, they have a delicious breakfast and even made us a breakfast to go when we went fishing early in the morning. The views from the hotel are exceptional and waking up to a panoramic of the Pacific Ocean was worth the price.

Almost everything about this hotel was fantastic... except the service at the front desk. When I reached the hotel I was shocked to learn that my reservation was non-existent due to a "miscommunication" between the hotel and hotels.com. They wanted to charge me an extra $100+ per night for 4 nights which was insane. Eventually after fighting with a supervisor... More

We splurged a little and decided to stay here the last 4 days of our Costa Rica trip and I am so glad we did. I don't mind spending a bit more for some hotels and this one was definitely worth it. The view was amazing and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had a corner floor ocean... More

The Mariposa is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The view from our balcony was amazing, and we could lay in bed and see the monkeys and the parrots outside. Lots of amazing kinds of birds too. The pool and sunset were gorgeous! I can't say enough about the included breakfast as it was so delicious.... More

We found La Mariposa online the day before we decided to travel from central costa rica to the coast. The last 3 days of our week in this beautiful place turned out to be the highlight of our visit. Welcome drinks, hotel tour, beautiful room with a breathtaking view of the ocean and coastline for less than we would pay... More

Set high in the hills overlooking the ocean, islands, and Manuel Antonio Park. From our room, we loved the orange monkeys carrying their young, the exotic birds and flowering plants and the balcony with stunning views. The staff was charming and helpful. Excellent breakfasts and dinners, infinity pool, overlooking that view. Be sure to arrange a tour of Manuel Antonio... More
