This hotel provided amazing service, good food, complementary breakfast (It included an omelette stand, fresh fruits, hot dishes, fresh squeezed juices, yogurt and more), free room upgrade, and good restaurant recommendations. During our stay in Manuael Antonio we traveled to some other resorts for lunch/dinner and La Mariposa's location was by far the best as well. It's located at the... More

I have been coming to Manuel Antonio for 22 years with my family and friends.We love Manuel even though the Ticos have done their best to destroy the rain forest over the past two decades but not to worry they will continue their quest in search of the almighty dollar.On this trip we checked into La Mariposa Hotel.This is the...

I have stayed with my husband in this place several times and we always want to come back. The service it's really excellent, all the rooms have an amazing view of the Pacific Coast. Admiring the spectacular sunsets in the endless pool is always a lovely experience. Also the food it's really delicious, and they offer a wide variety of... More

We chose la mariposa for its beautiful views- it didn't disappoint! We were also very impressed with the staff who were helpful and friendly- no request was too much for them. The front desk doubled up as a concierge and were really informative. There's a free shuttle that runs to the nations park several times a day which is fab.... More

Great hotel and you can't beat the views. Bar and restaurant were underwhelming and expensive but that comes with the territory. Staff was very friendly all around. Lots of stairs and no elevator so if you foresee an issue with this make note while booking to ensure you don't have to hike up and down from your room.

Good location, beautiful swimming pools and a fantastic view yet most rooms are outdated... We booked a garden room and found ourselves in a huge car park view room... As the hotel was fully booked they could not offer an alternative. There are a few new rooms however the hotel is a bit outdated ... A pity as the location... More

THis was a beautiful hotel. THe views are exquisite, the staff are the friendliest I have met. There was a problem with our room and within 15 minutes they had moved us to 2 similar rooms. THe breakfast buffet is wonderful. THe infinity pool is large and curved so it affords some privacy

We stayed in the hotel in December and had no problems with bugs as some other reviewers have mentioned. Sure, you are in the middle of a jungle, you will have all kinds of insects, but we kept the doors closed and shades down when we had lights on and it kept most of the bugs out. Splurge on Ocean...

it's all about the location, location and location for this hotel. The hotel has stunning views of the central pacific ocean. Very well maintained and the room was perfect. We were placed in room 60 which was a standard ocean view but it was almost a private villa, great views, beautiful landscape. Alex was amazing in taking care of us.... More
