I absolutely will be back here. This was my first time to Costa Rica and I read great reviews on this hotel and it did not disappoint. We got a great rate that came with free breakfast. (Nice money saver) Our hotel room was huge with a ton of space including an area with a little kitchenette. The views from... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, the room was ok, very clean but basic, with a nice balcony and partial sea view. The view from the restaurant and bar is spectacular though, they serve good food, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. So although the area is very overpriced and this hotel is no exception, we would still... 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
