This hotel was a recommendation from family who travels here all the time. And it was the best advice! Spectacular views, monkeys in the trees, wonderful food and an amazing staff! There is not one thing that we needed that was not already taken care of when we arrived! And the Welcome drink was fabulous!!! Swim up pool bar to... More

This was my second trip to Costa Rica and it was (hands down!) my favorite hotel in the country! Congrats to Danny and his staff for an excellent hotel. Nothing was impossible here. Every single request we had was taken care of immediately. The restaurant - outstanding! - and that view certainly led to squeals of joy upon first sight,... More

We had beautiful view with a large balcony. The room was large, well maintained and comfortable. We were only two adults traveling and it was very nice; not much to do for kids, but there are 4 pools and two swim up bars.

This was our second trip to Manuel Antonio, we discovered La Mariposa during the last trip and decided we would stay here if we ever came back. We stayed in room 57 which was a superior room, king bed with an ocean view. The room was very large with a nice sofa and huge mirrors in both the bathroom and... More

Where do I start about this hotel? It's very difficult to put in words the magic of this hotel. We've been there 3 times and the quality of service is the envy of all hotels. I dont know if there is such a thing as a 6 star hotel or not, if such a thing exists, this hotel deserves it.... More

The staff is super friendly and accommodating. We staying on the 3rd floor with the greatest balcony view in the area. The infinity pool pours out into the sunset and is beyond perfect. We had dinner here for 2 nights because it that good. It's a pretty special place!

Extremely helpful and friendly staff, perfect location with unsurpassed views (not to mention waking to capuchin monkeys breakfasting in the the trees outside your room), beautiful infinity pools, great breakfast, wonderful restaurant - these all go to making this the perfect vacation hotel. The rooms are really comfortable, though with one drawback: the toilet in some units (ours was one... More

We stayed I one of the premium ocean view rooms. I have never seen such a breathtaking view before. The whole front wall is glass with a balcony. We were able to watch parrots, tucans, many other birds and monkeys right from our room. Our room was spacious and modern. It had a king bed, futon walk in rain head... More

Views are phenomenal! The breakfast was amazing and the view from the breakfast area was nothing like I've seen. We're so glad we stayed on the Pacific Side of the country. Also close access to other major attractions.
