We had asked for a partial ocean view room prior to arriving & decided to upgrade. Oh My Goodness!!! The upgrade was a panoramic view that was pure paradise!!! The pool... More

This was our second visit to La Mariposa. The first was a romantic getaway for the two of us. This time we brought our family visiting from the United States. And each time, we all were awed by the beautiful panoramic view of the Pacific. The accommodations are lovely to look at, comfortable to use and impeccably clean. The staff... More

This was one of the most incredible hotel stays my husband and I have ever experienced. We walked away from our stay at La Mariposa having NEVER felt so well taken care of. We were here for a week at the end of October (rainy season), with minimal other guests staying at the hotel and our every whim was granted.... More

A little higher up from Manuel Antonio, with an incredible view at almost 270°. The sunset from the bar is a view to behold. And the infinity pool gives a nice view toward the northwest. We hade rooms 28 and 29, VERY large, with a common terrace allowing unimpressed view to the west and the beaches. One night there was... More

We stayed at La Mariposa for a week and loved every minute of it. The views were absolutely amazing from the restaurant and the pool. We had a partial ocean view room (with an awesome a/c), but we could see almost the entire beach. There was a tree on the very right side of the balcony that obstructed the view... More

Lost my breath for a second when I saw the view. We had a room in the main building overlooking the same view from the restaurant, but even higher! Was amazing waking up to that every morning. The rooms were spacious and well equipped with information about the area and tours. Breakfast was good, but I would have expected more... More

I chose this resort to spoil myself with the views. Which were simply stunning. Easily the best views of any hotel - about 270 degrees of coastal panorama, which can be enjoyed at the restaurant or any of the four invisibility pools. I even managed to get a reduced green season rate for what I considered the best value room... More

The Mariposa Hotel is a wonderful mountaintop oldstyle hotel. Fabulous views with monkeys likely to bound across your patio or play in the trees surroumding the hotel. The two outside bars have great service, pools are infinity style( one is adults only next to the top bar), and birds and other wildlife compete to steal the drink condiments! Grest food... More
